New Year's Eve!

I can't believe this year is coming to a close!  2011 was a great year, and 2012 will be even better!

Hangin' Loose.

I had to document my first time snorkeling.  I've been trying to overcome my fear of the water, and it's actually not as bad as I thought.  This picture was taken with our new GoPro video camera that we bought with our Christmas money!

Deck the Halls.

Over Christmas break we went to the Honolulu City of Lights with some friends.  The lights were awesome and it was warm outside!  I'm just used to freezing my butt off when we'd go see the lights on Temple Square.  
Christmas day was lovely.  Daniel and I spent the morning together opening presents, then we went to church, came home and skyped our families (including Elder Bridge!), and we had an amazing turkey dinner with some friends.  
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!  Now bring on the New Year!

Sushi Night.

Homemade sushi is delicious, especially when you have Megumi teaching you how to do everything.  That girl is a pro.  We made California rolls and shrimp tempura rolls.  The shrimp tempura rolls were a hit!  Our husbands were in heaven.

Happy December 1st.

I'll tell you why today is a good day to have a good day.  It's the first day of December!  This is my absolute favorite time of the year and it's finally here!  Let the holidays begin!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday, and I hope you all did too.  Our ward had a huge feast with deep fried turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and everything else you could think of.  It was a nice day so we ate outside on the grass.  We ate and hung out with friends all day long.  It was great.  I made these delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cookies to share at the party.  You'll definitely want to try this RECIPE!

Today I am grateful for so many things.  
I am grateful for my family.  They love and support me unconditionally.  
I am grateful for friends, especially here in Hawaii when we don't get to be with our families.  It makes the holidays much better.  
I am grateful for warmth and sunlight.  Imagine a world without it.  
I am grateful for art and creativity.  We have the freedom to create and express ourselves in so many ways.  
I am grateful for the gospel and the happiness it brings.  
And finally, I am grateful for my husband.  I would be nothing without him, literally.  
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Friends & family far away, we'll be thinking of you!

The Lookout.

Daniel and I just discovered the most beautiful lookout spot.  It's just up a hill past Sharks Cove.  You can see the entire Waimea beach. And let me tell you, what you see in the pictures isn't nearly as cool as what you'd see in real life.  The view was literally breath taking, and there's nothing I love more than a beautiful sunset over the ocean.

My birthday went a little something like this... (part 2)

Yes, I guess you could say we went a little out of control.  We had to party hard.  11-11-11 only comes around once in a life time, you know.  We had a toast at 11:11 pm with some Martinelli's and made our big wish, then we stayed up until one something in the morning playing games and eating cake.  Thank you everyone for making my birthday totally awesome!  And I want to especially thank Megumi for being the amazing photographer at my party.  She also made my delicious cake and helped me with decorations. She pretty much helped me with everything!  Megumi, your rock.

My birthday went a little something like this... (part 1)

My wish for 11-11-11 was a sushi date with my favorite person, so hubs made it happen.  Delightful.  Pics from my party coming up next!

My lucky number is 11.

I can't believe this day is finally here.  I've been waiting for this birthday since I was a little girl.  I feel so honored that I get to have my birthday on the coolest day in history.  Seriously.  COOLEST DAY IN HISTORY.  Be sure to make the ultimate wish today at 11:11:11 am/pm, I know I will!

Cob Webs and Jack-O-Lanterns.

I love this time of year!  Halloween is in just a few days, which means my birthday is eleven days after that (11-11-11, this is a big deal people). Then we have Thanksgiving and Christmas to look forward to soon after!  I can't hardly wait!
This is what our house currently looks like.  VERY spooky.  
AND I carved this pumpkin tonight with my friend Keola at our RS activity. Isn't he cute?

I love me some Mexican food.

I made these for dinner the other night.  My husband loved it and so will yours.  The recipe is found HERE.
