2 days to go

A little bit of house cleaning to start my day off. Work went by SO SLOW today it was crazy.
Watched two of my many favorite girls this evening and had dinner with Vic. Caught up on my favorite TV shows online and even managed to do a little laundry. ALL AT THE SAME TIME, I know I'm impressed with myself as well.:)

I haven't checked the mail in a few day's so I'm not really sure when it arrived but today I checked the mail and............much to my surprise we had a box. I brought it in and opened it up and it was a Easter box of goodies from the IN-LOVES. :) Awh they are really just to sweet, it brightened my day. I only wish that Gabe was here to enjoy it as well. Oh well guess I'll leave it on the table for him to see when he gets home in just less than 48 hours YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 days to go

Thats right my 11 days just went to 3~!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My love coming home this week, I am so excited. The way things are looking right now is that he should be home late Thursday afternoon so we will see. Like I told him once he calls me and says "Hey we just landed at HFB" then I'll be even more excited.
I'm happy he will be here for Easter, not that we have giant plans or anything really but it will be nice to have him home to have lunch with our friends :) and get together with them.

Work was ok for my first day back after being off for a week. Nothing to jump for joy about. I visited with Becca and Jenn for a while tonight down in Ewa Beach and finally scheduled our next photo shoot with Jenn. I'm totally stoked about it and can't wait, I love getting our pictures done and she does an AMAZING job.

Fourty days down and only 2 more to go.

12 days to go

Sunday was a simple day, I lounged around the house and did nothing. Half way through the day I broke down and washed my car. I ended up having to do it twice because the first I didn't dry it so there were water spots. I hate water spots and even more I hate washing the cars. Gabe is such a perfectionist about it that I never do as good of a job as he dose.
Of course it started raining alittle like it always dose after I clean my car but what's a girl gonna do.
I spent the evening with 3 of the sweetest girls ever. Vic invited R. & I for dinner and their other friend T came as well. We had such a great night chit chatting just us girls. Gossiping and laughs and tears and jokes made for a wonderful ending to a nice relaxing weekend. I really have made some pretty awesome friends out here in Hawaii and I can't ever imagine not having them in my life now.

13 days to go

After a very lazy morning I managed to get my butt up and do a LITTLE work around the house. Straighting up from having my mom here and getting the house back in order for the hubby to come home.
I broke down and mowed the back yard, yes me I mowed it for the 2nd time since Gabe has been gone now. I shouldn't have waited because its a pain in the butt to do with our mower when you wait a long time but oh well.

I was looking for a change with my hair. I wanted something different but knew I didn't want to cut it because it takes TOOOOOO long for my hair to grow out. That's when I decided COLOR. Off to the PX I went and well the out come is BLACK. I've had it black for the longest time before and loved it so I knew I would this time as well. Of course I do, now just waiting for my love to see it. :)

This evening I had plans with sweet Annie to go to dinner at Buca di Beppo. It's a yummy Italian place down in HNL. Off to Pipeline Cafe it was to see the ONE & ONLY
Anjelah Johnson LIVE. I was so excited, waiting on the edge of our seats because it was suppose to start at 7PM but didn't end up kicking off till 8:15PM.
It was a AWESOME show, I hadn't laughed so hard and so much in forever. She is just to funny. A must see for anyone who is in to comedy and even if your not I'm totally sure she will change your mind on that one.

I posted her "Nail" routine earlier in my blog but because its so funny and makes me laugh so much every time I hear it I wanted to share it again.

14 days to go

After sleeping in just a little later today we were up and headed out the door. First stop was the PX to do a bit of shopping.
The Dole Plantation was next on the list of "TO DO'S". Grabbing a bag of roasted pecans to munch on as we walk through the gift shop. ummmm my favorite.
Shortly after we made our way to the airport to pick up a friend who was coming back home. Once back on posted we stopped by the house so my mom could pack up her things and we could head out for some lunch. Chili's it was, I could eat there chips & salsa EVERY day if Gabe would let me. Heck I think he could do the same as well. It was my mom's last day here and so sadly enough after lunch we made our way back to the airport. :( I really enjoyed her visit and I'm happy she was able to come out and see were we live and do some of the things that we love to do. It was great to be able to take a week off work to spend with just her.
Another trip to the car dealership after I dropped her off and then I was on my way home. Stuck in the horrible traffic on the high way and I got a text message from MY LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!! It said "I LOVE YOU" I quickly replied with "CALL ME NOW" lol. I didn't wanna text I wanted to talk to him. So he did and we were able to talk for about 2 hours almost, I thought I was in heaven. I had missed hearing his voice so much it hurt. Only a few more days now and he will be heading home, I can't wait.

I have to babysit this evening but don't have to be there till 8PM. You know when they say the time is gonna be that late then its going to be a LONG night. Thankfully I wont have to do anything really because the kiddos will be fast asleep already. So that makes for a nice peaceful evening, were I can rest and relax on the couch.

15 days to go

A trip to Hanauma Bay was a must see, I had never been there myself so it was a first for me :)
Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve is one of the most popular snorkeling sites in Hawai’i. A narrow beach about 2,000 feet long lines the bay, a volcanic crater that was breached by the ocean.
Hanauma means either “handwrestling bay” or “curved bay.”

We ended the evening at Paradise Cove Luau. All dressed up Mom, Jessica, Crystal & her Fam & I headed to Ko'olina for the evening. I was so excited I love luau's they are so much fun and I think PC is the best on here in Hawaii. With it being my 2ND time there I Wanted to make sure my mom got to see and do everything they had to offer. We all had a wonderful evening with LOADS and LOADS of laughs and good times. Making memories with the best friends a girl could ask for, I only wish my love was here to go with us as well. Here is a sneak peek at our evening. :) ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!

16 days to go

This morning we made a trip to the Swap Meet to do alittle shopping and looking around. We had loads of fun in the process with lots of excitement along the way. :)

After picking up a few goodies it was off to Mauhawaili Falls w/ Mom and Jessica. From the moment we hit the road I knew it was going to be a fun trip. Finally making our way to the path it was so muddy and I could see it already, me falling and slipping right into the mud. I did really good the whole way and then we had just about made it to the falls when I slipped on a rock causing me to twist around and fall smack on my face. It hurt like crazy I could fill my lip swelling up right away and now I have a bruise on my knee. AWESOME NOT.
(here's a sneak peek of trip #~2 up Mauhawaili Falls)


After a fun filled day I had dinner waiting on us back at the house in the crock pot. We were having Pulled Pork Burritos, Gabe's favorite meal. He would be super jealous. I had invited a few of my closest friends over for dinner and to hang out for a bit. Ending the evening with some warm Chocolate Chip Cookies was perfect.

17 days to go

I love love playing tourist :)
Its so much fun and even more when I don't have to worry about work at all. Today on the agenda was Diamond Head and Makapuu Light house, along with driving the Kbay side of the island.

We set out just alittle before 8AM to beat the morning rush or at least try to anyhow. We made pretty good timing getting to DH. There wasn't to many people yet and I was able to get parking at the top instead of having to park down below and walk up. We made it up and back down in just a hour, I'd say that was pretty good timing myself.
It was my 2ND time up and honestly I hiked up KoKo Head before I ever did Diamond Head and so once I got to the top of DH I wasn't as impressed as I thought I would be. Everyone makes such a big deal about it but I guess those are all the people that haven't been up KoKo Head before. I took a few picture on our hike up but seeing's it was my 2ND time I had really already seen it all and got the pictures I wanted. It was a wonderful day out and a nice work out to. I'm glad I was able to go up with my mom though, I think she had a great time.

We even got "shaved ice" once we reach the bottom to cool off with, it was so yummy. :)


We decided to for go the Makapuu Light house walk for Pearl Harbor. We did however make our way around the Kbay side to do a bit of site seeing :)

Arriving at Pearl Harbor just alittle after noon but our ticket time to see the memorial wasn't until 2:40. OMG, are you freaking kidding me that's in like almost 3 hours. We decided to leave, grab some lunch because we were both so hungry.
Once back we walked around checking out the NEW Visitor's Center. It REALLY is nice and you can tell they have put allot of hard work & money into it. It will only be better once it's all done and the construction part of it is cleaned up.
I still get chills every time I watch the video before you go across to the memorial no matter how many times I have seen it.

Dinner @ Cholo's with my sweet Friend Jess B. ended our evening. I love that place and Jess. even more for finally breaking me in and taking me. If it wasn't for her I still would have never been probably. I guess its good to come out of my shell every now and then. lol

I also got my 2 sign's in the mail today that I had ordered from Household 6 Handmade. I LOVE them so much and I think they are the cutest ever. I can't wait to order another one and even more for Gabe to get home to see them.
Order yours today on Facebook @ Household 6 Handmade - personalized military gifts.

18 days to go

Well well well, I didn't get to sleep in much today and its even my day off. Up bright & early I had to get a few things taken care of that I had been putting off, because well be time I get off everything is closed. So off to get base stickers, to the vet to get the puppies monthly meds. and then to HNL to have a part replaced on my car.

Everything went so smoothly till it got to the car dealership and down hill from there it went. As they told me it would be about 11:30AM and they'd have everything done and even wash my car for me. Well 11:45 came and nothing I was still waiting. So around noon I went to the service area and asked them about my car and that's when they told me it was going to be another hour to hour & half. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH I wanted to scream, my mom's plane was coming in at 2:45PM so that would put me out of HNL by about 1:30. I still had to go home and let the puppies out for a bit.

Whelp, 1:30 rolled around and I was just pulling out of the parking lot. I was so mad because this is not what I had planned at all. I quickly rushed home to let the puppies out and called to check on my moms plane. At this time it was right at 2PM. Music to my ears her plane was a hour late, I didn't have to rush. I had time to go get a bite to eat for lunch because I was starving.

Finally making my way to the airport picking up my mom we headed to Waikiki. We took advantage of the cool weather and walked the strip having dinner at Jimmy Buffets Margarita vile. "umm umm good"
It's going to be a busy week with her here and I'm looking forward to all the fun stuff we are going to do.

19 days to go

The day was nice and relaxing. I managed to sleep in till 10AM, Yeppers 10AM. Dingo woke up around 8AM and then fell back asleep. When I woke up again and looked at the clock and saw it said 10AM I was like holy cow I need to get up.
The plan was to get up and finish my cleaning before noon. That's when I was starting to babysitting at my house. Well I got most of it done by then but the rest had to wait. Once baby Addy left it was already almost 4:30PM and Crystal was at my door begging me to go to the PX with her. OK OK I guess I'll go, I haven't been since Gabe left so what harm could it be.

We looked around a bit picked up a few things and were out the door headed to the commissary. We are planning a Easter brunch so we got a few things for that. I'm looking forward to it, should be fun and I'm hoping that Gabe is back by then. If everything stays the same and goes as planned he should be.
I managed to lock myself out of the house AGAIN tonight, I swear really twice in one week. What the heck is up with me, I have lived here for over a year now & have never had this happen. Thankfully lil sweet M. was at home and able to craw through the doggie door again to open up the house. What would I do if she wasn't around.

I ended the day with dinner at Chili's with Julie. Some much needed girl time catching up over the last couple days. Now its just me and the pups at home being lazing, well I am relaxing they are playing crazy through the house.

20 days to go

Up & out the door by 8:50AM, I was headed to see sweet Kyla dance again this morning. After visiting with her and her mom for a few I met up with Crystal to get tickets for the luau we are going to next week. :) I'm so excited that her and her family are going with us. Its going to be so much fun.

I spent the rest of the day cleaning the house and getting things ready for the evening. Two of my sweet girls were coming over to hang out for a bit while their mommies went to a get together. I love the way my house smells when It's all nice, pretty and clean. With the blinds open and candles lit just makes everything so sweet and fresh.

Maui Mikes for dinner hit the spot, and then R. & V. were out the door. It was just the girls and me so we decided to take a walk around the track. Some much needed outside time was nice. It was a bit chilly but not to bad at all.
After they went home I went over to Crystals house to visit with her and catch up on their day. It was a some what eventful day for many different reasons. I'm just glad it's over with and I'm that much closer to Gabe being home.

21 days to go

Its ALOHA FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!! Well, it didn't start out so ALOHA. A phone call @ 7AM asking if I could go work at Peterson for the day. Yay ummmm no, any other day Id be all over it but today I can. So kindly Crystal offered to go for me which was awesome. She is so sweet, I don't know what I'm going to do when she leaves :(.

After I got settled in at work & things were going well the day started to creep by slow as ever. I don't know if it was that I knew it was my last day for a week, or the fact that it was Friday & I had to babysit after work. Whatever it was needed to go away. Just alittle after 3PM my Assistant Director asked how many kids we had left. Well we had 3 but since I was taking one of them home with me meant we really only had 2. She quickly checked numbers in the other classes and told me to take my two kids to the other infant room and then I could go home early. SWEET GOODNESS IT REALLY IS ALOHA FRIDAY!!!!!!! Off work by 3:15 and headed out the door, even if its only 45 minutes early its still early. :)

I checked the mail like I always do when I get home and I had a PACKAGE :) I knew just what it was. It was my sign I had order from Personally Yours. I tore into the box as fast as I could and got it hung on the wall. I'm so proud of it and can't wait till Gabe gets home to see it.
(order yours @ ~ email her and ask for ordering info.)

I finished out the night babysitting around 8:15PM and made a stop by Old Navy on my way home. I found the dress I'm going to wear to pick up Gabe & I'm super excited about it. It's a bit different than the other ones I have so we will see.
Once home I got in alittle cleaning and finally around 11:25PM I called it a night and headed up stairs for bed. It was a LONG day and I was so ready to get some sleep.

22 days to go

I was so ready for this day to be over with before it even really got started.
Up at 2:30AM with the dogs pacing the bedroom, ended up having to mop the floor @ 4:00AM because one of them peed. OMG, I was SOOOOO mad. I guess on the bright side my bedroom floor is clean.

I went to leave for work and the STUPID CONSTRUCTION people were out working on the two houses next door to me. No big deal right there remodeling the house so someone can move in. WRONG BIG problem, see I have a end unit so I have a double drive way. For some reason the construction people think they can park in front for my house and half way in my drive way. Blocking both the truck and car in causing me to have to wait for them to move before I can get out. AAAAHHHH, so annoying it wouldn't be that big of a deal I mean if they were doing MY house but THEIR NOT!!!!!!!!!!

Work....... there was just one thing after another that was going on. Four parents walk in for drop off right at 8:00AM on the dot and that NEVER happens. Since I was alittle late we were still opening the classroom and getting things ready. We never really settled in for the day. It all just got handed to us right then and there. I didn't end up getting to take my lunch until 2:15PM. Which at that point I only have alittle more than a hour before I go home so its almost pointless but they take it out of my check so I might as well take a lunch.

It was my last night with lil. Grace for the week and so we headed home to let the puppies out for a bit. Then down to her house for some Corn Beef for dinner. I had never had it before and it was ok, not something I cook all the time.
I managed to make it home right at 8PM to watch Greys Anatomy and just my luck it wasn't one tonight :(, now I'm just waiting till Private Practice comes on and then calling it a night

I ended up having to go to the commissary after work today and it was pouring down rain. I just wanted to get in, hurry and get what I needed so I could get out before it got even worse. Well I did alright, in & out with in 35minutes not to bad at all right???? Right, with a ending total of $179.00 as well. At least on the bright side I don't have to worry about going again before Gabe gets back home.
