So I got back from Maui a couple weeks ago. My friend Kerri and I had a great time! It would be a lie to say it was easy to say goodbye to fresh pineapple, tropical sunshine, and hot sand. We did a lot of fun stuff including laying out, beach hopping, laying out, snorkeling, laying out, eating, laying out, went on a submarine excursion, laying out, boogie boarding, and more laying out. It was so nice to have a real vacation and to be somewhere warm. I hadn't been to Maui for a few years and it was Kerri's first time so we made sure we gave her the REAL Hawaiian experience. Here are some more pics of our trip.

In other news. Since my last post I got a NEW car. Yay! 2005 Black Mazda 3 hatchback. I love it.
Also, my brother is now an Elder and is in the MTC. Andrew will go to Mexico October 11th. He is loving his mission so far, thinks he knows Spanish but that could change when he gets to Mexico. He is having fun meeting people, learning more about the gospel, and playing soccer on P-days. He is spoiled by his sisters and Mom with way too many sweets, ties, and other various items that he probably doesn't need.
The next few months I am SAVING my money and rearing up for an awesome Holiday Season. I plan on doing another 5K in a few weeks right before Halloween, which is going to be great this year, I already have plans for my costume... haha just wait, you know it's gonna be good! December is what I'm really counting down for. Laura is COMING again and we are heading to CANADA for the annual Whistler Trip. Boarding, shopping, dancing... and all with one of my best friends! I am so lucky. Then later on in the month I get to go play in Idaho with family and some peeps. More boarding to come and REAL live SNOW. Yay!
I need to say how grateful I am for good people in my life. For those of you I am close to, you know the last several weeks have been really rough (ok ok Maui excluded) but all at once I have been extremely blessed with great friends and family in my life. I have been learning some great life lessons lately and have grown closer to my Heavenly Father because of it. Thank you for all your love, support, and encouragement. I feel so very blessed to be surrounded by so many great people.
Aloha! More to come soon!
