Sunday Bits & Bobs, Part II

7 Jul

96a8be40e5c511e293e422000aaa088d_7I’m back! I took a brief cupcake break and will have a proper dinner once I finish this. Here’s the rest of the Bits & Bobs, starting with Marcelo.

Marcelo is still in Brazil with Clarice, Enzo, Caio & Yasmin. They look like they’re having a good time seeing friends & family.

Mesut posted this doggie shot saying “Happy Birthday, Don Capone! Today you are 1 Year old…i will always be there for you…give me a hug, Bro” Oooookay. He’s talking for dogs. (BTW, that’s Mandy’s dog with his).
50ba4deee71f11e2b9c722000a9e07b7_7Nando has surfaced in Dubai. Hopefully there will be more pictures soon. BTW, Nora Torres will be 4 tomorrow! While looking for Nando goodies, I stumbled on this video that I hadn’t seen before of La Roja right after winning Euro 2012. The players are all looking for their families. There’s sweet moment with Alvaro, Alba and Carlota, Santi & Enzo, Sergio & his Daniela (it’s sweet how his face lights up when he sees her. Heck, even Xavi has a big ass grin on his face.

And now for a tale of two Pepes. First up, our own Képler Laveran Lima Ferreira. Here he is posing with the amazing Marta. Ana Sofia is posing with what looks like some sort of lemur.

Sami & Lena were at the Wimbledon Men’s final today courtesy of Nike. Here’s some modeling shots of Lena. The latter was for a charity called Schutzengel Projekt (Guardian Angel Project). She’s so pretty!

Stu Holden celebrated the 4th in head to toe patriotic wear while sitting on his friend’s shoulders. Stu takes particular care with his hair as Karalyn showed in this Face Time shot. Toby Holden West takes after his daddy’s style and wears a baseball tee with aplomb.

Here’s a couple more shots of Sergio & Pilar at the wedding.

Pique purchased a dozen roses for her outside a Beverly Hills restaurant. I’m guessing it was spontaneous because I’m sure that Pique has a florist on speed dial if he knows what’s good for him, especially after Hotelgate 2013.

Here’s a lovely shot of them with Milan that I hadn’t seen before. The baby looks like Zach Quinto in that picture!
tumblr_mpfaf12P7a1r5de3so3_250 Next up a bit of Roberto Soldado! He’s in Ibiza (where else?) on vacation. His wife is in the ‘couples out to dinner’ shot and I added a picture of his cute kids Daniela & Enzo. Don’t know a lot about his family but I know his missus is the best friend of Carlota Ruiz. Carlota is Enzo’s godmother. Alvaro & Soldado have been close going back to the cantera. BTW, that last shot he said was “the consequences of alcohol.” Comforting to know shit faced drunks are the same the world over.

A couple of days ago, we got a request for some Villa pictures. I found a few today. El Guaje posted a shot of his beloved Asturias on WhoSay. And yesterday, he attended his sister Aida’s wedding. Looks like he gave her away as well. Mazel tov!

And finally, we get to Xabi. Here’s a few more pictures of him training in San Sebastian the other day. He trained inside the next day because he had been spotted. Nagore posted a gorgeous picture of the riverbank and said they were going to have a picnic. Nice.

And that’s me done for tonight! I have to go back and add a couple of pictures to the part one post since I found new ones of Thiago Chin Puddle,  Guti & Enzo. I know I need to answer quite a bit of comments and email. I promise to start on that tomorrow. Thanks for your patience!

Oh, btw, Xavi is getting married next week to his girlfriend Nuria! I can’t wait to see the pictures from the wedding. I bet it will be outside and Xavi will drive everyone nuts checking the grass constantly this week. 😉

    How I do love pictures of Villa with his family, especially his daughters. That’s the family I want to be friends with. Oh, and check out Yossi Benayoun’s instagram (benayoun15) for a picture definitely worthy of sharing. I may sighed a bit…okay, a lot. 🙂

      One big huge Monday morning thank you for that one!!! The sandy wavy hair. The sun kissed cheeks. Adorable.

    I always love all the pics, but please, have mercy on me….no more Pilar & Sergio, I beg you! 😦

      Sorry. She’s part of his life and as such, you’re going to see her here. You’d better get used to it or stop looking.

    Still cannot believe Xavi is getting married!

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 8, 2013 at 1:05 pm #

      Me either!

        I know! I totally thought he was gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that) before he met Nuria. But he was so happy this last season! I wish them all the best & I can’t wait for the wedding pics.

          Me, too! Gay and an intellectual football snob. So I was wrong on one count.

    So much win in this post!

    Pepe Reina (How would you like to wake up to that every morning? Bufff!)
    Marcelo (How cute is he?! Seriously)
    Piqué & Shakira (I love them together. They seem like they just really enjoy each other.)
    Ozil’s doggies (“Give me a hug bro!” hahaha)

    I saw the video from the 2012 euro celebrations on live tv! Daniela was ‘crowdsurfing’ to get to Sergio. So cute!!!!!! So many great moments.

    Nothing to do with this post but my sis told me about an advert on the notice board where she works: ‘Pedigree persian, free to a good home’; she called the lady, (my niece is crazy about cats) wondering she’d give a persian away, behavioral probs perhaps? Nope, just that the new kitten she’d bought didn’t get on with the older cat. So she ditched the older cat. Poor Rocky. I’m guessing that was his fate too

      WAH! I hate hearing stories like that. It infuriates me. I got Max The Cat from a a shelter when he was 7 or 8 – we’re not sure). He was about to be put down because everyone wanted kittens and he was an old guy. I was lucky he was grabbed by a rescue group. He’s been the light of my life for 10 years. A woman on the next street had a cat for three years and got a new boyfriend, who didn’t like it, so she tossed the cat out onto the street to fend for itself. How do I know? Because I’m the one who took the cat in, got it fixed and found it a new loving home where he’s been for 5 years now.

      Another family around the corner took a kitten from the litter of a lady who runs the vegetable stand. She inquired after it a few months later and they said “Oh it grew up and it wasn’t cute anymore so we put it out on the street. It still keeps coming around meowing for food.” The lady at the veg stand had a shitfit and demanded they return the cat to her (which they were able to do because the poor thing kept coming back to what it thought was it’s home). People are such fucking arseholes. Those are a couple of stories that ended up okay, so many more don’t.

      Yeah, we haven’t seen his bulldog since Mandy & her pug arrived on the scene. Now he has a pug. WHERE’S ROCKY?! I want an explanation!

        I hope one of the (presumed ditched) cousins has taken him in? I had to leave my beloved Lambchop when I moved for work, luckily my friend Corky loved him as much as I did…he now has the run of a 3 storey house plus outside cat pen. Won’t give me the time of day tho…
