Nín hǎo, this weekend Kendra and I took a quick trip to China. We also decided we are converting to Buddhism because we love the smell of incense.

Hau’oli La Ho’omakika’i from Hawaii! Today is officially the first holiday away from home. Kind of sad that we don't get a home cooked traditional thanksgiving meal, but Kendra and I sure made the best of it! Today was freezing. Naturally we decided to hike up a muddy trail...with a pumpkin haupia Ted's pie in hand. Kendra carried it (cause I would've for sure dropped it) up to the sunset beach pillboxes. We sat looking over the ocean eating our pie. Then we went into the pillbox, set up our hammock and ate some more pie there. We had to be back for a thanksgiving meal with friends so we headed down the mountain, but it was a lot more muddy than when we started. We were slipping and sliding all over the trail. Kendra unfortunately dropped our pie 3.14159265 times in the mud... so the pie is no more. Other than that, good thanksgiving for sure. Thankful for this little island and all the lessons I've learned here. Thankful for good roomies to spend holidays with too. Miss home and family but so so thankful to be going home in less than a month! Peace (out), love and aloha.

Since no school for a week, duh we have to go to the beach. Cami, Kenny & I hit up the beaches on North Shore at pipeline. It was literally THE perfect beach day and boy would I be lying if I didn't say I've never seen the water so clear and blue. This is exactly how I pictured all of hawaii. Wow I fall in love with it more and more everyday (literally falling for hawaii lol) Cami & I dropped our stuff on the beach and ran down into the waves. There were people surfing all around us and the waves were so big we had to duck dive under them. IT WAS SO FUN. But on the way swimming back in, we got caught in the crash zone and tried to duck under them but it was too late and got thrown around like crazy for a good five minutes until the swell passed. Still worth it tho. Got a lotta sun, shells and sand thats for sure. Pipeline is definitely a new fav. If you ever come to oahu, it's a must. Anyways, till next time. As cami and I always say: Catch ya on the flip side niggaaas.

Made it through one semester of college yeeeeet. the laie temple is only a 5 minute walk from our church building AKA perfect for fast sunday while waiting for the caf to open. Kenny (Kendra) and I grabbed a camera and Ali's clothes for the typical temple photoshoot. It was a perfect day and the temple was prettier than ever. (also can't stop loling bc these look like mission pics) Wow I love hawaii.
