We like him


Melissa's boyfriend, Justin, met the whole fam when he flew to Florida to come on vacation with us a few weeks ago. Brave guy! We had heard so much about him from Melissa so we were excited to meet him. Well, I have to admit, I was more cautious than anything. My mom kept telling me not to grill him first thing - I'm protective of her!

When I first found out she was dating him I heard that he had a video on YouTube of him singing so we checked it out. She said he could sing, but she didn't say he could SING! Like can seriously sing. That was cool but I thought "Here we go, some good looking guy who knows he can sing - I'm sure he's going to be completely obnoxious or obsessed with himself, probably both." But I decided to meet him with an open mind, be nice, and let him prove me wrong. And he DID!

I have to say he is the nicest, most down to earth person and I am so glad. We had a great time with him on vacation with us all week. He got along with Jared really well, it was funny because they were always up to something - surfing with mini-rafts, grabbing the nets to go catch jellyfish and blue crabs, throwing the football - it was great because Melissa and I got to rest!


Anyways, he came to Tyler last weekend while we were all up there and sang in church and it was really unbelievable how good he really is. I was going to do a duet with him but my throat got hoarse and I didn't want to have to sign autographs after - it was a whole thing, so I just let him go solo. Here's the video of him singing:

He's trying out for American Idol next week so we could actually KNOW someone on the show this year! I think he's going to win, I'm just going to go ahead and put that out into the universe.

WOW! tyan...oh my goodness. He is an amazing singer. I clicked on the video to listen for a few seconds, but I ended up listening to the whole 5 minutes of it. Wow, tell Melissa that she keeps him around.
