Random Night

    Mike is MIA tonight so I am trying to keep busy do nothing. 
It is pulling teeth trying to get him to eat sushi with me so I decided to order take out for dinner for myself. I found a really good place in town that you would never walk into in less someone recommends it... which is how I found out about it.
       I ordered more then just this, but it was already in my belly when I decided to take a picture.
 I'm not a full sushi lover. I only eat the cooked stuff. I haven't quite had the taste for raw yet. 

After dinner, I gave my self a pedicure and watched 1 of my top 5 favorite movies.
  After Bolo's walk, I was doing some browsing... and found the funnies website ever! I highly recommend clicking HERE! 
The more I scrolled down the more I laughed!
I tried to duplicate a little of the cuteness but failed miserably.
 First with a stick of butter
Then with a clementine
 I was getting frustrated and so was he.
Seriously, go check THIS out! This dog is so well behaved!

Another of my top 5 favorite movies just started, 
So I'm going to cuddle up with the pup and just relax for the rest of the night. I'm excited to not have to fight for bed space tonight...well...except with Bolo.

   I think I gained 40 lbs just today alone.  
A good portion of the day was spent stuffing my face with some awesome food!
 We hadn't been to the famous Cinnamon's yet.... and because the Browns game started later then usual...we were finally able to go. 
It is very rare that Mike and I will wait at a restaurant for 45 min to get a table, but today that happened.   
 The amazing Red Velvet Pancakes. Who ever thought of this is a genius!
Yes... this was only one of the sides that I ordered and yes...that is white chocolate drizzled on top.

  After the game....Mike and I when to brave the Grocery store. OH MY! It was a big mistake that I waited 2 days before Christmas to do my shopping. 
I also have forgotten a few thing so will have to go again.

We were planning on going to a different restaurant that we hadn't been to yet for dinner, but decided to postpone that for a different day. Instead we headed to Haleiwa Joe's. I took this picture before we were seated. Such a beautiful garden that I wish we would have been able to explore.  
Mike made a comment that he hopes we get the table in the corner with the nice views....and we did!
We stuffed our faces with some delish food and I am now in a coma. I come!

Friday Fun

    Quick Hike today with some lady's from work. Kuliouou Ridge was done again because of the great views. I thought for sure we would have been in the clouds once we got to the top but it was surprisingly clear. 

*Key thing to remember: Eat breakfast before doing this.... I learned my lesson.

Looking back at Hawaii Kai


Diamond head in the distance

Poor lizard almost got stepped on .
How cool is he though!!!
 Halona Beach Cove
Better known to me as Cockroach Cove.
We made a quick stop on the way home to check it out.

Beach Day

     I had been wanting to take a drive to the North Shore for some time now but hadn't found the right time to do it. Today was finally the day.  I stopped at Sunset Beach and Bonsai and there were some surfers at both.

It was a pretty crappy day raining on and off but people still came out to watch. I missed the Billabong Pipemasters. I was pretty bummed about year for sure!

Winter time brings the big waves which makes for a great show.

I sat and watched for what seemed to be hours. Very peaceful and relaxing.

 I came to the conclusion that I need to get my butt out there in the water and learn!

Bolo and I took a quick walk to North Beach after I got home. The rain came soon after.... meaning smelly dog = bath time

Aihualama Trail

  I had a hike planned today that was going to give us a good challenge but things changed when there was a little "situation".
   We went to Manoa Falls and enjoyed the quick muddy hike up to get to Aihualama Trail. 

    There are no snakes in Hawaii so I am guessing that this is a hammer head worm?
Check out my last adventure to Manoa Falls for more pictures....

  This trail eventually connects to the Nu'uanu Trail that we have already done. After walking and walking and walking some more we decided to turn around because we were hungry and I had to pee. We have already seen the views and it was pretty cloudy so they wouldn't have been that good anyways.
It was a very muddy day!

Bolo Update

   So today is the big day for Bolo. I dropped him off early this morning to have some torcher at the vets. I scheduled the appointment for last week but decided to move it to this week because Mike and I could not agree on what he needed done. Of course Mike got his way and he is only going to be having a tooth pulled. I would have liked to neuter him while they were doing the tooth know how that goes. 
   He was not on his best behavior. 
Hopefully he wont cause to many problems while he is there.

Friday Letters

smoosh face
Dear Sickness I have had sense Monday,
    I refuse to let you take over my weekend! I look like crap, my throat feels like a cat has been using it as a scratching post, my skin hurts, and I now lost my voice but we are definitely going to do something fun coming up soon with or without you. I hate you though and I wish you would leave me alone already!

Dear Unmotivated Katie,
    You need to make up your mind already. Either your going to have a ugly Christmas Sweater T-shirt  party or not. There is only 2 more weekends till Christmas so if its gonna happen you better get a move on it.

Dear Megan,
    Congratulations!!!! and also I am so excited you booked your tickets!!!

Dear Family,
     Please don't have to much fun without me this holiday. I wish I was there.

Dear Christmas Shopping,
    Hurry up and be done already!

Tis the Season

   Last week Mike and I started on our decorating for the holiday. I have to say this is the earliest I have ever had a tree up ever. Usually, it is 2 or 3 weeks before, not just one day after Thanksgiving...I like it tho!

   So the inside is totally done but we are having trouble with the outside. There are so many rules and regulations with what we are allowed to do on base, and in order to hang lights we need to buy gutter clips and of course gutter clips are all sold out everywhere we go. So the outside will still have to wait for now.
