I realize I haven’t posted in awhile, but at least it hasn’t been a whole month since my last post….Getting better one post at a time.
Last week we had some visitors here in Hawaii! It was so fun to have our first visitors come to the island! Hayley and her good friend Sarah came over for a week to explore the island and see Reid and I (Anthony too, of course). We went hiking with them, had them sleep on our floor, and just enjoyed their company. Anthony and I still had school all week so we didn’t get to see everyone much during the day, but at night it was always a party. We are so glad they came to see us and are so grateful for all the kind things Hayley and Sarah did for us. Love them. I have a lot of pictures from the week, but I will do a separate post with those because I am currently using Anthony’s iPad and none of my pictures are on here.
It was my birthday this last week so we did a lot of eating cake throughout the week (hayley’s doing…) and on wednesday Anthony surprised me with the best birthday so far! We went horseback riding, had a picnic on top of a mountain, saw whales, went shopping, and then went to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory in Waikiki. It was truly one of the best birthdays, mostly because I got to spend it with my best friend in the WHOLE world. It was one of the most beautiful days, which only made it that much more enjoyable:) I sure do love my wonderful husband and all the sweet things he does for me, as well as the unwavering support and love he gives me every day! This week was one of the best, since being here in Hawaii, and I can’t wait to have more visitors (wink, wink).
I really do have a lot of pictures to post and I really will post them. Probably tomorrow.
Other updates on our lives:
-I am almost done with my first baby blanket (for Maren)! I haven’t had much time to work on it recently so I am excited to finish it and see the final project!
-I bought fabric to make curtains for our bedroom since the curtains here are way too thin and it gets light WAY too early around here.
-Our semester is almost over and we are both looking forward to the week break between semesters so that we can be lazy and lay on the beach…maybe finally get those Hawaiian tans going.
-We have a place to live after we move out of our current apartment! (subleasing again)
-Flight prices have gone down which means I am finally going to buy tickets to come home for a few weeks this summer! REALLY excited about that.
-Our dear friends the Elmer’s are moving April 12 and we are going to miss them so much 😦
There isn’t a lot more to update you all on, things are good over here in Hawaii. We love you guys and can’t wait to see everyone this summer while we are home! Hawaii is absolutely wonderful, but no where beats San Diego. Seriously miss that place. One day we will be back for good. For now we are enjoying the journey and the wonderful people we are meeting on the way!!!
Come visit us! but don’t use Allegiant Airlines to get here…..you may get stuck here for a few extra days or weeks. Just a warning. Just ask Hayley.
I will be back soon, but for now here are some wonderful pictures of Anthony and I that I found on his ipad:
