Introducing Bubba


Well, since I do talk about him, I figured I would tell y’all some background about Bubba. His real name is Jason & he and the Hubs have been best buds since they were like 8 years old down here in the country… He wasn’t called Bubba until me, every time I called the Hubs when we were dating (oh- Bubba & the Hubs also are the dynamic duo at work with phone systems, paging systems, and fire alarms, and I’m sure I forgot something – my b, boys) Bubba would ramble, very loudly I might add, some random chick name, and hence the reason the nickname Bubba came about… He would call me some random chick name to aggravate me and I would call him Bubba to aggravate him and this is before we had even met each other… I love living in the South!

First example of Bubba not looking like a Bubba…
This photo above & below is the first time I ever met him. I was already calling him Bubba but saw him and said, “Mike, (couldn’t call him hubs yet, we had just started dating 🙂 ) he doesn’t look like a Bubba, oooppss…” This was 2011.

These two photos above and below are like June of this summer. 2013. Bubba is the tall one in the middle with the upright bass… I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older y’all, that all the people in the band are really cool, but, the bass players are really a ton of fun… just sayin’… lol!

Here’s a photo of Jason and Mike the day of our wedding. Both of them have longer hair now but you get it… 🙂

Here’s another one from before the wedding ceremony, do y’all think the Hubs & Bubba were plotting a getaway? If so, their plan didn’t work…lol

Ok- Jason did a huge favor for me, he is a very skilled bass player but he can play the guitar, so, me being the spoiled princess I am, make a phone call and say, “Bubba, I can have someone else do this for me, but, I want you, you are Mike’s best friend and you have a gorgeous voice, but, I need you to play the guitar and sing “Marry Me” by Train.” His response was “OK, if that’s what you want, I will make it work.” That is SO awesome to have phenomenal friends like that, I’m not sure if he did it for me or Mike or just to make me stop blowing his phone up (which didn’t really happen, I still blow his phone up…lol) I am so grateful for friends like that…

Love this one!

Last photo is one of my fave, this little man is Bubba’s son. Is he not gorgeous??? He is SO awesome and well behaved as well.

I looked backed to see if I could show you at least one photo of Jason’s lovely wife, but, could not find one photo… I think she hides from my camera… I have way more pics than what is on here of Bubba and zero of his wife, we are going to fix that soon. 🙂

Until next time.

(BTW my fab. photographers are Brandon & Ellen Nance of Motovated Exposures 🙂
