Finally, a few pictures from the beautiful island of Kaua'i

The sunset from the Sheridan Hotel, just a short walk from our condo.

Marilee and I
Sam and I on my second night in Kaua'i (we went to a cute little town called Hanapepe that hosts this fun little Art Walk on friday nights)
Sam and Karl outside the condo where we stayed

Rachel just sent me a few pictures of her boys trying on their Halloween costumes. ADORABLE!!! Isn't Sam a great big brother?

Akeela And The Bee

I watched "Akeelah and The Bee" on the flight back to mainland when I was coming home from oh-so-great vacation to Kaua'i a few weeks ago. It was a super cute little feel good sort of movie (if you haven't seen it yet, you definitely should). There was this great quote that played a rather large part in the movie that I just loved and thought you might all want to see if for yourself. Enjoy it, learn from it, glean what you will from it, like I did.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. " ~ Marianne Williamson

Oh, and when/if you watch the movie, watch out for little Javier Mandez (played by J.R. Villarreal), he is such a sweety!

Tabs out!

Let's Celebrate!

It's time for a celebration!!! Today, my sweet little car, that took me all the way to Oklahoma and back 4 times, has reached it's 100,000 mile mark today! Thats a huge number, it looked cool to see all those zero's (sure wish it could be on a check). Well, way to go little you!

I've decided that my blog is down-right boring. I've posted a few pictures and left a few words for people to read but really, I've got nothing of importance or funny to say. I'm boring. It also doesn't help that I don't always get/take the proper amount of time to take care of my precious blog. That saddens me. Oh well. Whats a girl to do? Try harder, thats what! Realize it's boring, stop complaining and wishing it was better and do something about it. So, don't worry by faithful readers, this boring girl isn't giving up just yet! "As God as my witness..." :)

I did also want to mention that my new favorite show is having their season premier tonight. Good ol' Grey's Anatomy will be on ABC tonight at 9:00. Don't miss it!

I'm back!

Well, everyone I'm back from Hawaii (Kauai to be exact) and things are slowly getting back to normal (sort of). I had the best time on my first ever vacation. I know this may sound like an exageration but it truly isn't, from start to finish my entire trip was fantastic...there was not a single moment that was bad (at least not bad enough for me to remember). I loved, LOVED spending time with Sam and Karl, I think it really solidified our relationships, and it was so great to be with Marilee again, laughing and having an absolute blast (as you can see from the pictures in the previous post). I'll hopefully be able to get some pics up tomorrow and then when Marilee sends me the disc with all 500+ pics I'll put them up too. Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know the trip was fantastic but I'm back in the real world now, getting into the groove of work again.

Love to you all!

Now its a countdown to my cruise in December, also with Marilee (and her family and our friend Tamra)! :)
