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 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!
