No Can! Can!

So Ben and I were at L&L Drive in the other day (Bens most favorite place to eat). We were reading through a newspaper ad and we came across this one! I think Jay Leno would appreciate this one....

"If you get one Honda or Acura,
Sta' broke, get one brada come yo' house
feex um no joke He go make um solid
like one rock Das da guy dey call Hondoc"


The most GIANORMUS pancakes in the whole world

We (Ben and I) spent a couple days on the Big Island with our friends Jeremy and Amanda. It was awesome! They were staying at this beautiful house on the Wiakaloa golf course. It was totally something out of a dream home magazine! There was a beautiful infinity pool that looked over the golf course and ocean. The bathroom was the coolest! If you didn't feel like taking a shower inside you can just take a step outside into a tropical waterfall shower that is enclosed by volcanic rocks. It was great being rich for a couple of days. On our last day Jeremy and Mandy insisted that we go to breakfast at this one restaurant. They supposedly had the best pancakes with coconut syrup. I suffer from an extreme case of indecision and I couldn't decide between the delicious pancakes that they raved about or eggs an bacon. I wanted a little of both so I asked Ben if he wanted to try the pancakes so I could try some of them. Somehow in my asking I made him feel like he had to order the pancakes that he didn't really want but wanted them because I wanted them. What a Guy! So The waitress brought out our order and as she walked by the tables people began to giggle and point. Jeremy and Mandy were rolling! These pancakes were HUGE! GIANORMOUS! They were bigger than the restaurant sized plate, they were falling off the plate! They were about an inch and a half thick with a 15 inch diameter! 3 of them! It was the funniest thing ever! Mandy took an 1/8 and I took an 1/8 and the rest was for Ben. (It was like eating 12 village inn funny face pancakes.) It turns out that on a previous trip that Jeremy and Mandy had taken she and her sister in-law ordered these pancakes as a side order to their main course. They said it was the funniest thing ever so they had to try it on someone! We took a picture but unfortunately we have this problem of deleting pictures accidentally. Like the one time I deleted a picture of Annie (bff) and I in Paris on the Eiffel Tower! DUR! We fed the rest of the two and a half pancakes (Ben could only eat half of one) to the fish outside. They were huge too! I wonder how they got to be so big? The coconut syrup was great by the way!



This is Anna in Utah just a few weeks before she came to Hawaii. She loved to sit in the back yard and watch the neighbors. What a clean little baby!

Here she is on the beach. She still doesn't like the water to much but she loves the soft sand. She loves the sand so much she eats it!?! Gross! When we say "you wanna go to the beach" she turns her head like she knows what your saying and then just goes nuts. As soon as she gets on the beach all she wants to do is run. If you have ever been around pugs you know when they get really excited and they run as fast as they can it always turns into a circle. We call it a rip. Depending on the space available when she rips it turns into a big circle or small circle and sometimes it turns into a figure 8 (by they way she does a perfect figure 8 when she runs on the beach!) Its hilarious! Furniture doesn't get in the way either she just goes over or under. Man can she rip!


Holiday Mondays

I have this so called workout routine that I try and do every week. Tuesdays and Thursdays I have a 5:30 Yoga class. Then Wednesdays and Fridays are 6:30 Step class. I was lucky enough to have the Monday after New Years Day off. I don't know about the rest of you but whenever a holiday is on a Monday it throws off my entire week!! I went to a 6:30 class on Tuesday and a 5:30 on Friday! I was totally screwed up. On Friday I went home after work and took my time getting ready cause hey its a 6:30 class night, no need to hurry. I brushed Anna, vacuumed the floors and got dressed. I even left a little early so that I could get a good spot. I pulled into the parking lot and drove by the aerobics room (the windows face the parking lot) and saw everyone working out! Why is everyone working out without me? Did they started early? Did I miss an announcement? What time is it? What day is it? Crap! I got my day/time wrong again for like the billionth time this week. Now don't get me wrong I love holidays even when they are on Mondays but someone needs to invent a anti-retard-forgetting-days gizmo or something!!


Hello Blog World

This is my first time! So be easy on me. What freedom to be able to talk about anything! Almost. So, I got a shopping spree for Christmas. I was so excited! I have been really good to not spend money on stuff that I don't need since we moved to Hawaii. Now, whenever I get money as a gift it not as easy to spend so I hang on to it. This is a big deal I don't want to spend it frivolously; I have to make a very smart decision on what I spend my free money on. I must LOVE it to buy it. That should be my motto all the time but I find it easier to spend money when I shouldn't. So I went to the mall, which by the way shopping in Hawaii sucks, I found the best deal on the cutest swimsuit! What luck I love it and it's on sale! I am making a GOOD choice! Good Me! So I bring it home just to find out that the right boob pad is missing! Dang! Just a minor set back, it's OK I'll just go back down to the mall tomorrow. So I put my cute polka dot suit back in its bag and hang it on the back door. Well that night I was cleaning and I always put the trash by the back door to take out when I finish mopping the floor. Ben and I gathered up the trash (or rubbish as the locals say) and took it out. We had lots of rubbish because Christmas had just happened. Well a couple days later I am like "Where's my cute new teeny weeny polka dot bikini?" I turned the house upside down. All that straightening I did the day before, ruined. It's now where to be found! In the process of retracing my steps and grilling Ben it came to me, did I throw it away!?! Why me!! I can't believe it! Merry Christmas!
