Sammy the Dog

Our dog Sammy is so cute, but he is getting old these days.
He is 14 years old and his little hips and back legs are hurting him,
they sometimes give out on him and he falls down. :(

It's probably from him jumping 6 feet in the air to bite the snow coming out of my dad's snowblower. It's Sammy's favorite past-time.
And swimming in the beaver creek behind our house.
He loves to take walks and pee on everything.

Poochamer is his nickname.I love Sammy.

Reverend Nikki Returns

My Priesthood will continue this year when I will officiate weddings for
2 sets of my friends!!

The 1st wedding is for Dara and Devin, who I met in college,
and actually kinda introduced to each other! They will get married on October 2nd in
Los Osos at a adorable little bed and breakfast on the bay.
This is the place that Michelle and Chris also live, and I also aspire to live very soon (as soon as I get a job down there). It's about 10 minutes from San Luis Obispo...

The 2nd wedding is for my Brazilian friends Giselle and Edmir who I met when I was living in LA about 6 years ago. We worked together at a french restaurant in Long Beach with a crazy french owner and slutty wife, and were all roommates after that too! (not the french guy or his wife)

Their wedding is on October 16th, and I am sooooo excited about this one - they are having the party at the Santa Monica Pier and rented the whole carousel building!!

Their invitations are really cute too...Giselle is so creative.

One of my friends suggested I dress up in something special for this one, since it's kind of themed. So, I considered being the bearded lady, but I am not sure Giselle would appreciate that. BUT, I know Ed would!! Maybe I will go as the horse back riding girl...

I can't wait to post pictures of both of these great celebrations for you to see!!

Baby Gear

So many people I know are having babies this year!
I guess it's about that time...
I embroidered these cute onesies for my friends and their soon to arrive bundles of JOY!

These 3 are for me and Michelle's old college roommate Leslie, and her new husband Dan.
They will name their little girl Ella (elanor) Ann Blomquist.
She is due October 24.
These are for my work friend Yuko and her husband Can.
They are Japanese and Turkish - this little boy will be VERY CUTE.
They are thinking of naming him Deniz Sora, but haven't decided yet.
(deniz means Sea in turkish, and sora means Sky in Japanese)
He is due September 4.

These are for my last assistant Kristine and her fiancee Ervin.
The only problem is, I was so sure it was going to be a BOY, but I guess now it's a GIRL!!
So I think I will give these to Yuko and make new girly ones for Kristine.
They are fighting between the names Mikalya and Johanna. (I like Mikayla)
She is due November 12.


I want one too.
