Omaha

Well, here I am in Omaha! I came over to spend a day or two with R & M. It's been a lot of fun. We went to Chipotles last night (YUM!) and then to see Mama Mia. It's my birthday week (birthday month actually....) and R & M found this really cute T-shirt for me. It's perfect!













M and I spent the day shopping downtown. I found a few treasures, but mostly just did some window shopping. I did find this really fun bag. I've had my eye on this style of bag for quite some time, but have never found one I really HAD to have. Until today.













We had a very yummy lunch here at Stokes. It was very nice outside so we actually ate out on the patio. I had hoped to be able to meet R for lunch, but he had a meeting over the lunch hour and couldn't get away. I did get to see where he is doing his internship this summer, which was fun. I always love being able to picture where the kids are.












We then headed to another part of Omaha to M's favorite bead shop. She has been making and selling some beautiful jewelry. She is in the process of setting up an Etsy shop in fact. I'll be sure and let you all know when she has it up and running.













We're back a the apartment now and just had a great panini sandwich that M put together and R grilled to perfection. We're going to watch a movie and I'm going to FINISH the Vikings socks; M's going to work on her jewelry and R is going to actually WATCH the movie.











Back at home Steve and Sumo are holding down the fort. Steve is preparing Sumo for the arrival of our newest family member who is scheduled to arrive late August. (No, I'm not having a baby!!) We've decided it's time to get a puppy!!! A little yellow lab. She was born July 7th and should be ready to come home around Labor Day weekend. As soon as I have pictures, I will post them. Now to decide on a name. Any ideas?

Until Next Time.....

Cute bag, cute t-shirt, cute R & M! Glad you're having a fun time over there. :-)

This new little girl is going to help heal your heart when Sumo passes over the rainbow bridge so how about a name to honor him?

What do you think of Simone or spell it Sumone?

Sounds like a wonderful visit with R & M, and I love the new bag!
A new puppy will be so fun, I'm so glad you are getting one. I'm afraid we are going to have to say goodbye to our springer soon and I'm really glad that Max the wiener dog will be here for us.

Puppy Lou! :-D I know, just being silly. When she arrives, that little puppy will probably just look up right at you and tell you her name :-) Love that bag you got.

I love all your purchases and your
new shirt. The previous post said
you will know the new name when
the puppy looks at you. She is right. Glad you are having a good
time.

Sounds like a great birthday week/month! I'm so jealous that Sumo is getting a puppy. I think you should name it Loopy.

Since you are getting a girl pup, how about "Purl"????....I think it's perfect!

Marianne said...

Happy Birthday Month to you! It looks like you and R & M are having a wonderful time! I totally agree that seeing where your kids are makes it much easier to have them away!

Congratulations on the new puppy! That is so cool! My Lhasa girl's name is Sunny, so of course I think that would be a great name. But then, I also think that Loopy would be super cool! Or, she may tell you what her name is when you get her! Pictures, please!

OH, I'm so excited for you!! I love love love puppies! Can I come and see her. On second thought I might want to steal her, not a good idea. You have to let us know as soon as you hear anything about her.

Happy Birthday:-)

happy birthday and congrats on the new puppy. Our two yellow labs are named - Annie and Kodi. I love Sadie, Max, Zuzu and Wrigley for dog names, it seems many folks name their dogs the same as what we named our daughter - Bailey. We love the name and she is always just fine to hear of a dog named after her. a few ideas!

Robin said...

How about a knitting name of some sort???? Meise as in Woolmeise??? Or Merino, Cashmere, or even Monkey after your favorite sock pattern.
