Tonight is the eve of Michael P.'s and my second wedding anniversary. I can tell you that these two years have been wonderful. It has seriously gone by so fast! I love cherishing these monumental events. I love celebrating any holiday and anniversary. Yes i am one of Those people. I love the anxious feeling the night before a monumental day and waking up just to say Happy birthday or in this case "Happy Anniversary." It's the best. I get really giddy and just smile ALOT! This past year has been a great one and I can't wait to see what is in store for us this upcoming year. Here isOur Wedding Videothat Alex Loucas Made. We love it!
December was a crazy, wonderful, magical month. I was finishing up me fall semester which I am proud to say that I did really well in. I am also really happy to say that I will be walking in Graduation in April and finishing my college career in June. Time is flying and I just want for it to stop for like 5 seconds so I can get caught up in everything.
For the most part of the month Mike has been super ill but he is now starting to feel better. Poor guy he works hard doing Solar and even when he's sick. He's a stud! Christmas break was much needed. It was so fun to Have both John and Jenni here as well as Brent and Katie and my parents flew out for Christmas so it was a treat. My parents spoiled Michael and I. Are belly's were always fed and it was just so nice to have them here. Katie, Brent, Mike and I slept over at my parent's house on Christmas eve and it was a blast! My friend Christiana was unable to go home for Christmas so she spent the holidays with my family. (Sorry i didn't capture any pictures of us keeks.) Well I hope your Holiday season was full of fun activities and spent with the one's you love!
Santa Spoiled me with my New Kitchen Aid Mixer. I love it!
My last post was on my actual birthday. I had no idea what was in store for me that night but some people did AKA Michael P. and my dear sister- in- law Katie. A couple of months ago I told Katie that I have never had an ice cream out of an ice cream truck! Well on Oahu there is an ice cream truck that is called Lickety Split. I hear the tunes of the music when Mike and I lived in Hauula, I see it on the North Shore and it comes to the Point ALL the TIME! But whenever i hear the tunes of that magical ice cream truck I have already eaten or I didn't have cash on me or I just had ice cream out of my freezer. SO... Mike and Katie called all or our friends to come over around 6:30. Katie put on some music and not to my knowledge was texting the Lickety Split ice cream man. When he texted her that he was around the corner, she turned down the music and I could hear the lovely tunes of the ICE CREAM TRUCK!!! Right when I heard the tunes I was like, NO WAY!!! NO you didn't! OH MY GOSHHH!!!! I was literally so excited that I was crying! I was in Heaven. What a way to start my 22nd year!
The Ice Cream man was seriously so awesome! He even dressed the part! I mean look at him!

Well now you know some pretty interesting things about me. Hope you've enjoyed it!
On November 3rd I ran in my first Color Run race in Kapolei. It was so much fun! I was in a group called "Run Like a Mother" Katie made up the group name and i wrote, "I'm not a mother but can i still be in your group???" Our friend Jackie commented back and said, "Your a mom to Philly so you can be in it." Both of my sister in laws ran in it, Katie and Jenni and I ran with Jenni. My dad also ran it with us and strolled Frank and Eliza. The Kids had such a great time. It's definitely the Happiest 5K On The Planet! I will be definitely be doing this race again! it's a party for sure. Who doesn't like color being thrown at them? Great time, great friends, and great company.
This was the sunrise the morning of the race! I couldn't believe how gorgeous it was so i snapped a pic on the way to Kapolei.
Mike Birthday is on the 28th of October and he is one of those people who do not want the attention on himself for his birthday. I am the one who loves decorating, getting friends together and celebrating someone's life. Sometimes it's so hard to figure out what Mike wants to do because he won't tell me. Maybe it's a guy thing? Who knows but all i wanted to say was GET OVER IT and LET'S PARTAY!!!! But overall it was a low key night. My dad was in town and also Mike's Best friends The Hawkley's and the Gardner's were in town. I made some Shish-ka-bobs and a Peach pie and Carrot cake. (Mike's Favorites)
The night before Mike's Birthday we had a Tsunami warning and so we got all prepared and watched it happen in our back yard. the surge was about a foot high. My drawing really captures it huh!
Happy Birthday my main squeeze! 29 is your year! Love you tons! xoxo
Halloween this year was fun. Mike and i dressed up. I was a glow stick figure and mike was green man from (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.) Don't forget the Riot juice! I had a late class that night so we ended up just taking Brent & Katie's children around the block. They are the cutest.
About a month ago I flew down to California for literally 48 hours. As most of y'all know i live in Hawaii and I am in the middle of a semester so I flew out on a Friday night red eye flight and got there Saturday Morning and came back to Hawaii Monday morning early. It was the most fun, exhausting weekend but I was so thrilled to have made it to Carrie's Baby Shower for little Van! It was so fun to be surrounded by friends and family.
I hope baby Van makes his appearance soon! His due date is on the 23 of this month! Eee
