This picture was taken the week before our high school graduation, at our Bacclaurate ( sp??).From l-r its Nikki, me ( don't you love my big glasses???),and Mary.
I don't remember when this photo was taken, but this is 'Hot Nikki'.
This was Nikki before we went out to party for her 21st birthday.
Nikki and I have been through so much in 24 years as only true friends can do. We have been there for each other through hookups, breakups and eventually when we met our true loves. This is Nikki , late at night, at my apartment, helping me make the bouquets and such for my wedding. She is a very talented artist, and did my boquets as gorgeous as ever!
She is also very selfless. Her birthday happened to fall on the day that Chris and I had planned for our wedding. I wanted to honor her in some way for all the help she gave me that day , and since my dads birthday was two days later when we would be on our honeymoon, I decided to bake them each a cake, (like I didn't have enough to do already the day before my wedding, lol) and have the entire reception sing to them. Here is the look on their faces when they got their cakes. ( her mom had hers and my mom had my dads)
Look who caught my bouquet!!! ( her mom is sitting behind her and her sister Kim is standing behind her). True to myth that the person who catches the bouqet is the next to get married is sooo true, because the following April 11th, Chris and I were standing up for her wedding to William ( who she met thru Chris and I when she showed up for dinner one night and Chris brought a friend home from work for dinner)! It was instant attraction.
This is a pciture of her little family then. Gosh Nathan was only like 2 in this picture! She has now added a little Cherub named Sonya who just turned 6. Unfortunatlely for me, when my puter had problems not to long ago I lost the recent pictures she has sent me!
She still lives inTexas, butnow lives like 8 hours from me. That totally sucks, since due to our schedules we can't see each other near as often as we like. thank goodness for emails, and phones!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIKKI! YOU'RE THE BEST!!!!!!
