Galaxy Quest

Sadly - this post has been a little tardy. Note to self - get better about updating blog. A few weeks ago, we were invited to a Galaxy game. Thanks Katie and Tanner! The most important part of this is that I actually saw David Beckham! With my own two eyes and the zoom lens on my camera. And then as I was talking Katie's poor ear off we saw Kobe Bryant too! I do like soccer but sadly I am one of those fans that doesn't know any team names, or players or anything. I pretty much watch the World Cup with a lot of enthusiasm (once every 4 years), am blindly loyal to F.C. Porto and know David Beckham is legendary like Pele. Despite my pathetic knowledge, we had fun and were glad we got to spend time with Katie, Tanner, Reese and baby Beck.

The man Kobe. He loves all sports.
Reese LOVED the camera. And understands the game better.

Quote of the Day Follow-Up

On Thursday, I went to Ikea with my friend Jenny. Here was how our conversation went:

Jenny: Hey I read your blog, that was pretty funny.

Nikki: Yeah, sorry about that. I sorta chucked you and Lexi under the bus.

Jenny: No worries.

Nikki: I can't even criticize - I know Kelly Ripa and I would laugh a lot together. And I don't think I am cool enough to keep up with him, but I would love to hang out with Owen Wilson for a day.

Jenny: I don't know about Owen Wilson, but I would love to hang out with Vince Vaughn.

Nikki: You're right. Vince Vaughn would be way funnier. I know I couldn't keep up.

* I am not sure why the last few days have had so many conversations about celebrities, but it has been highly entertaining.

An Extra Wedding Present

My former rommate - Jen abandoned me and Sara so she could move to New York City to live a fabulous life. (And give us a place to stay when we come out to visit). However, Jen comes out to visit often and I was so happy that she was able to come out for our wedding.

Just recently she came out for another visit and brought me some great wedding gifts but some of my favorites were a bunch of pictures she snapped at the wedding. Here are some of my favorites.

My old roommates - Jen and Sara

And my favorite shot - of the beautiful shoes.

I am so glad she got a picture of the shoes. Like any woman, the shoes were an integral part of my outfit. Thanks Jen!!!!!!

Happy Belated Easter

So this is a few weeks late but I believe it is still post-worthy. We had our first Easter together. Complete with a puffed pancake and a super clean house and an Easter basket filled with our favorite goodies. There might have even been an Easter dress for me to wear somewhere in there.

So the basket is not really an Easter basket but I loved it and it was on sale at Marshalls for $10. It looks just perfect for a picnic.

Quotes of the Day

While watching American Idol, these were our conversations:

Nikki: I don't think Simon likes to be in the spotlight. I think that Simon is actually a super nice person in real life.

Sara: I know - I bet he is. He seems like it. I don't think he likes the spotlight either.

Jenny: I met him last season, he was so nice. His girlfriend is so so nice. And I want to say that if I ever met Ryan Seacrest - I just know I would be one of his best friends.

Nikki and Sara: (laughing because the comment is so awesome/funny)

Lexi: I know - I think I would be best friends with Ryan Seacrest too!!! And Justin Timberlake, I just know that we would be friends. His favorite ice cream is mint n chip - my favorite ice cream is mint n chip too!

Okay - besides the fact that this was a very fun conversation, I am glad the girls were over because Darren is gone again on a business trip.

Does anyone else out there have a believe that they would be best friends with a celebrity?
