Mahalo Kurt, Mahalo.

Remember a few posts back when I said Kurt was the best? Well, he really outdid himself by letting me go to Hawaii for a week with two of my best friends. Jana, Rischel and I met ten years ago at BYU Hawaii where we lived in the dorms together. We all ended up finishing school there at different times and although we live in different places, we have stayed close and love to get together when we can. So, the perfect reunion came together. Jana and Rischel were talking and discovered they were both planning on going to Hawaii this fall and then they called me to see if I could go too. They were both going with their hubbys and Jana and Wes with baby Jay. Kurt and I talked it over for about a week and he ended up saying, "You should go for sure, but I don't need to go."Based on his work and the financial aspect and his prediction that I would spend six days sitting on the beach reading celeb magazines and chatting, he decided to skip it. I felt better knowing that Kurt was with Felicity every evening and over the weekend. I am so lucky to have such a good husband who lets me "spread my wings" as President Hinckley would say. Thank you Kurty J.

We had so much fun catching up and laughing, EATING and reminiscing. The weather was awesome, the company amazing and the vacation once in a lifetime. Thank you to everyone that watched Felicity while I was gone. Thank you Hawaii for being awesome. I love you and miss you already.

Standing in front of our dorm. Hall-eh two baby.

A honu like this ran into me while I was swimming. The water was murky and shallow and I was a little freaked out. I was trying to leave this guy alone and avoid the $10,000 fine, but I was literally laying on top of him trying to get away.

Awkward pose, I know. Awesome weather and glassy clear water at Waimea. So, beautiful.

Cute Jana and baby Jay. He was a good baby and a good traveling buddy.

A Little scary looking I know..

Jana's darling baby Jay.

We stayed the first two nights at the beautiful Turtle Bay Hotel. It was Suh-weet. Then we stayed in an awesome condo for the next four nights. Thanks to Bitsy for the sweet hook up!

Enjoying Motsumotos with Rischel and hubby Jon. The three BFF's and baby Jay.

Isn't this the cutest picture?


Outside of the Grass Skirt Grill, our favorite place for yummy fish, rice and salad.

Chattin up the girls while the boys found some surf on the south shore.

Isn't this cute? All the boys-watching the waves.
Ok, so I didn't do four posts, but I did two. I am kind of proud of myself. I hope the five of you that read my blog are proud too!

Kelli, what an awesome trip! So stinking jealous! I also have to say, how do you look so drop-dead gorgeous without even any makeup? Ten years have only made you more of a babe:)

betsy said...

Love seeing your pictures! I'm so glad you guys had a fun trip. It was fun to visit with you too. And your suit is way cute - its Lime Ricki right? I was just on that website, thinking about getting one since they are all on sale. Do you like it?

Rischel said...

Yes oh yes, Mahalo Kurt! We had so much fun! And I really love the awkward prom pose picture of us. Definitely my fave.
Really, this trip would not have been so great if you weren't there. I am so grateful your husband did extra work so you could play with us!

Kim said...

Judging by the comments, it looks like lots of people read your blog. It's been so nice catching up.

Ah, to be in Hawaii again. We miss it so much, my husband was looking for jobs there on the web just today. Unfortunately, not jobs that pay enough to live there.

Brandon, Christie, and Addie said...

A lot of people read your blog, it is witty and entertaining. My brother is a good guy to let you go but for all the hard work you do for him and Felicity (and me and Addie) it was well deserved. I am glad you had such a fun trip!

Kim said...

It's time for a new post. It was good to see you the other night. It sounds like you and Marissa had a great time together in Las Vegas. I know she appreciated having a little break from life with her best friend.
