The Beauty of the Ocean

Yes, that's Scott! I wonder what's he looking at!

Happy 28th Birthday Jeremy

Summer Lunch

A well deserved lunch of summer rolls, sushi, and crepes after a challenging school year!

Service Above Self Award

Way to go Anna!

Poli's, Mokuleia

Been surfing here a lot lately. Despite the occasional sea turtles (thoughts of sharks) and gutless waves, this session turned out perfect with big set waves washing through and rides that were long and fast.

Kanoa's Brithday at Rainbow Pavillion


The smile BEFORE I got worked by the powerful beach peaks at Tracks.

MIliani Track Meet

I should have known better. With those long, muscular legs, she could win races and she did-3rd in Girls 100M and 2nd in Mixed 4 x 100M Relay.

Crumb Cake

I couldn't believe a piece of crumb cake cost $3 at the bakery. So, I made my own. One of the best recipes in Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook.

Mother's Day at Fort De Russy

When you're the one being honored, calories don't count-hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad-all yummy!


My new favorite surfing spot. Not too big waves, long enough rides, safe feeling, and very friendly surfers. I just realized I've spent the last 3 mother's days at the beach. No complaints here!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the women who nurture others! Thank you for all you do! The poem from my Anna on Mother's Day: Mama You keep my head under a roof You make good food appear like POOF! I enjoy your sweet hugs and your NYC mugs. Your fashion isn't tragic You're the mom with lots of magic Sometimes you nag It sure is a drag But you're still the best mom ever! You tuck me in at night When you read it's such a delight We go for pedicures And I love those for sure We spend so much time together Will we ever be broken apart? OH NEVER!

El Charro

This may be a tie for my favorite Mexican restaurant on island. Remember what I said about the rice? El Charro's rice is delicioso! And so is the fish taco, and enchilada, and taquito!

Shopping with Mom

We don't hit the malls but we do hit the farmer's markets and second hand stores for OUR kind of shopping!

JP Spaghetti

Former Asaggio cook opened his own restaurant to the delight of Wahiawa residents. The chicken saltimboca is always of favorite of mine!

Happy Birthday Dad!

We all come together to celebrate this awesome man! May you have all the health, happiness, and good sports to watch!

Class of 2013

I've had these kids since 9th grade and now they're graduating. Surprised them with letters and cupcakes and they surprised me with mini cakes and kind words. Going to miss them!

Roast Beef Sandwich with Twice Fried French Fries

Fresh roast beef compliments of my dad served with Martha Stewart's twice fried french fries turned a hectic day to an awesome Monday!

Cinco de Mayo

Happy eating on Cinco de Mayo!

Shoe Shopping

One of our favorite things to do together! Since she was a little girl, Anna has always enjoyed slipping her feet into the tallest and flashiest footwear!
