Married to Medicine...

Bravo! has a show that premiered this season called "Married to Medicine." And it follows the lives of 6 women in Atlanta, GA. Two of the six women are physicians, while the other four are wives of doctors. Let me just start off by saying...Holy COW! My life is nothing like that...and THANK GOD!

On Death, Dying and Living.

Over the last few years death, dying and living has hit home way too close when it comes to my family and friends. After a night of dreams filled with those I love who have passed, I woke to an article about an 18 year old boy in Minnesota who's life ended on May 20th after his courageous battle with osteosarcoma.

Come dine with me.

In some families, when you are invited to join them for a know you are someone they consider family or friend. The same is true for my house.

Daily struggles.

Over the last few weeks and months I've really been thinking about the day to day things that I struggle with. Not just as a person, but as a husband, a friend, a son, a brother...and in every other facet of my life. I find myself questioning whether or not I'm actually being me, or if I'm being the person that I think everyone around me wants me to be.

Winner...Winner...Chicken Dinner! I guess it wasn't really appropriate to say "chicken dinner!" :) But I think you know what I meant! Today is the day that I announce who the winner is! :) I had so much fun with this first contest, and I can't wait to do the next one! So, without further adieu, here is the winning picture!

You all ready for this?

In my mind...the music started that you hear at every basketball game when the announcer asks, "You all ready for this?" Do you know what I'm talking about? Or am I all alone on this one...yet again? Well I guess that if I'm alone in least I'm dancing to this music!

Re-entry into normal life...

Let's all be honest...vacation is GREAT! But re-entry into normal life is always a bit tough. We landed in Seattle last night at around 9:45 PM. My father met us at the airport.(He just flew in from Montana.) And then it was back to our home...our life.

Day of Rememberance - Day 7

Today was really focused on the honoring of memories. We started our day out by going to the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor...and finished the day recalling the memories of our trip. And from one all the way to the other...we realize how important it is to honor the memories.

Even God took a day to rest! - Day 5

I wish I could say that it was my own choice to take this day to rest. But between my body and Mother Nature...I think it was just in the cards! All the nights of little sleep, traveling, hiking, sun and fun have finally caught up to me. So I finally gave in...I admitted defeat.

Whole lotta hiking goin' on! - Day 4

Today had many highs and many lows...there were times that we were on top of the world, and other times we were sloshing through the mud. Am I trying to be poetic? Nah...we just went for a 7 hour hike today, that's all!

Day of Eating and Hiking! - Day 3

I honestly don't know what we did more of today, hiking or eating. Right now it feels like all we did was eat...but I think it could be a toss-up! Our day started with a text from my father at 5:48 AM...he forgot that Montana is four hours ahead of Hawaii. Honest mistake. :)

Driving around the island - Day 2

Driving around in my baby beside me...eating Maui Onion Chips. Okay, so I know that those aren't the words to the song...but that was our wonderful day! We drove around the island and I took Michael to several of the beaches that I used to frequent!

Back home on Oahu! - Day 1

For the past three years Oahu has been calling to me. Begging me to come back for another visit. And finally I was able to answer! I can't even begin to tell you how antsy I got as our plane flew along the north shore of Moloka'i and we headed south! And then...there it was...Makapu'u!

Honolulu Bound!

I have Pineapple Princess running on a loop through my head right now! I'm sitting at gate A13 waiting for our flight to Honolulu to board. I can't even begin to express the emotions that I'm feeling right now. Most of it is that feeling of going home. Or seeing a friend that you haven't seen in years. I feel that right now.
