grrr…

so i guess it had to happen sometime, or says everyone here. “everyone’s car will be broken into once the first year you are here.”
we were at a scenic point for about 5 mins with casie on friday and we came back and the rear passenger window was busted (completely shattered everywhere) and casies bag was stolen.
it sucks. we were gone for 5 mins and we were like 20 ft from the car.

so its sunday morning 7:10am and we are both woken up by our bed shaking around like crazy and not knowing what the heck is going on. There was an earthquake here sunday morning well 2 to be exact and then 21 aftershocks. The big one is the one that woke us up is was a 6.6 mag earthquake which seems crazy lucking it was centered on the big island so there wasnt to much damage here. Then i guess there was a 5.8 earthquake after. Our power went out around 7:15am and then our phones starting ringing from people that had heard and wanted to know if we were ok, but we didnt have any idea what was going on cause know we didnt have power to watch the news or listen to radio. Well our power didnt come back on untill 8:45pm and it was a miserable day out it poured all day so there was nothing to do, we were so bored. That morning i had made reservations at the pacific beach hotel for brunch becuase i heard they had an awesome brunch and the resaurant is centered around this giant aquarium. Its like the boston aquarium with a resaurant all around it. Anyways i called and they said they were still open even though the entire island didnt have power so we went down there. I wasnt sure if we should go and maybe just push it back till next weekend but we got seated right next to the aquarium wall and they said the brunch was open we walked around and there wasa no breakfast food it was all seafood. I was so upset cause kev doesnt eat seafood, they said they didnt have all the waffle bar and panckaes cause of the power. But i guess some waiter heard us talking about what to do because he said he could go make kev some pancakes. good thing.
anyways me mike and erin had planned a little treat for kev. They have a diver dive int he tank to feed the sting rays and fish like 2 a twice a day but you can arrange for the diver to hold a sign. Even though it looked like it said happy birthday kev mike and erin, he loved it!

this has to be the funniest picture ever taken in the history of photography. The self timer caught the exact moment i’m rushing out onto the rocks in the river so we could take a picture but i’m losing my balance and grabbing onto kev which in turn is making him slip and kev think he is going to fall into the river with his camera around his neck. haha

so we went on a hike on saturday to go find a waterfall. The hike was awesome, it was following this stream/river that you had to keep crossing over. To get to the waterfall took us forever because we keep going down wrong paths but even getting lost on the way was still fun. So here we are about 2 hours into a hike and we come to the waterfall which was beautiful, everyone was swimming and jumping of the rock ledges on the side. We decide to leave cause we are both starving and walking back out of the waterfall area this girl looks at us and says “are you from massachusetts?” how weird right, i didnt recongnize her but i guess kev did right away cause her next question was “did you go to framingham state college?” haha crazy huh? i guess kev knew her from around school and the girl knew casie too. Its so weird.

Ko’ Olina…

Yesterday since we both had the day off we went down to Ko’olina resort. Its a resort/hotel/golf course/condo place that has all this property right on the ocean. Anyways its awesome cause the ocean front has been formed into 4 lagoons. There is a really nice walkway that follows all 4 that you can walk along. They allow a limited amount of people the use it publically everyday if you are not staying or living there so you have to get there early. but its so nice and the hotel is so so awesome.
here are some pictures i found online of it. I didnt take pictures cause it wasnt very sunny out yesterday.

so i was at costco yesterday looking for some kind of frozen treat to bring for dessert to our bachelor party (tv show). we met at jennis house and eat dinner and watch it. but anyways i found a box that had all these tropical sobets in it. There was pineapple, coconut, pina coloda, orange mango and lemon. I figured that would be good. When i got home i realized just how awesome they were. They are all in hollowed out fruit. Thats a real pineapple that its in. The coconut is in a coconut, there is one in an orange and the lemon is in you guessed it a lemon rine. How swweet is that. I was so excited. Its just so neat!!!

so here is our class photo. haha its funny.
anyways we had a good weekend (long weekend!!) on friday when i got to come out from the computer room kev had gotten dinner and bought SAVED BY THE BELL seasons 1 + 2. so we spent the evening eating and watching save by the bell which is such an awesome show. Since this is our very first place we really just enjoying hanging out here. It was alot of fun.

Saturday was my mary kay facial party. haaha i didnt get pressured into buying anything but i since i wasnt buying anything i couldnt say no to having a make up party here next saturday. so now all 4 of us have to come to a make up one now.

Saturday night we went to a jillians type place in honolulu to meet a friend of kevs from college who weirdly enough i went to high school with.

sunday we went to thebeach with a guy from kevs work. we got to jump off the big rock again so that was fun. Kev swam with turtles and we found huge turtles laying on the beach and about 10 of them right in the water at the shore. It was sweet!!!! Sea turtles are so crazy looking and they are everywhere here.

casey is coming in less than 2 weeks we are very excited about it.

i decided to train to run a half marathon.
im starting my training today.
The honolulu half marathon is in april and i want to run in it.

surprise…

mmm its friday night and i was just told i had to go into the computer room so that kev (who has been gone for awhile) could come in and set something up for date night… i dont know what it is but im very excited!!!

so work was awesome today, i switched shift with the afternoon girl today cause she needed to dosomething this afternoon so i didnt have to be there till 12 (ahhh sleeping in) so from 12-1230 we ate lunch then from 1230-100 we set up their cots with their blankets and they read stories and then from 1 to 3 they sleep. I wasnt sure they actually slept but they all fall asleep so quick and they were out the entire time. then i wake them up at 3 which takes really till about 330, then we had snack and watched a movie til 415 and then we went outside and played ont he playground till 5. by 5 everyone is gone. well when i got there there was 11, then by 3 there was 8 then by 4 there was 6 and then all the sudden there was 2. Its so sweet. I think im going to try to stop being the teacher and just work afterschool, i know one of the ladies just left for maternity leave.

so im getting a mary kay make over tomorrow. i dont know how i got myself into this. im doing it with the girls we met at the church the wives are getting marykay makeovers while the guys are going surfing. surfing??? since when do i prefer being one of the wives i want to be a husband i want to surf! anyways i never ever have zits and of course never ever have any kind of facial done but yet in the same week i have both. ugh.
the marykay lady called me to talk about skin types but i didnt take the call and havent called her back, eeeek. i dont know what to say. mary kay: “so what color foundation do you use?” me:”ummm whats foundation?”

the birds here are crazy. we have hit one while driving already it flew right into the car on the high way no less but like everyday its like playing chicken with them. plus they look like dinosaurs. they have road runner tall legs. plus then there are the monogooses they look like fuzzy lizards. Maybe hawaii is where all the dinosaurs went. but back to monogooses, they are so weird. there are no squirrels here but there are these monogoose things, they are creepy and ferret size.

so scaffolding is making its return. well i guess the spirit never went away we are in hawaii arent we but anywyas be bought a ton of art supplies the other day.
yippie

We are heading home december 15th on the red eye. We will be home for 2 weeks and you better believe that there is going to be a kev and jen christmas party, we already have the idea and it blows last years out of the water.
