a year in review.

2008 was GREAT, i can safely say it was the best year of my life so far...

-moved into 7312 Waterside Drive and discovered what is was to live in a real house

-started my current occupation at Lieberman Research Worldwide (LRW), which has brought me many blessings-aka rescuing me from the retail world.
-Robert took me out for a nice Valentine's at the Harborside Restaurant in Newport Bay.
-I turned 23-eek. and spent the day with family at my niece's 6th birthday party

-also the fateful month i decided to run a half marathon.


-I ended my 5 year love affair with myspace. and was able to get selfish for once.


-I ran a half marathon! (an accomplishment that is far our of my reach these days :()

-I also "graduated" (happy to say that picture is actually valid now)


-I don't remember much from June besides being engulfed in Diet Mtn. Dew and seeing alot of these folks-who i do miss


-the 4th was fun riding around on bikes and taking naps

-and who can ever forget the best surprise ever (well until a week later) WICKED!!


-ENGAGER! (that was the one week later surprise of a lifetime)


-I started my last semester at CSULB

-We threw my sister her bridal shower


-I had my bridal shower

-My sister got married in Las Vegas on Halloween! such a great weekend!


-I recieved my endowments :)

-and the WEDDING!! and the most perfect one ever if i do say so myself, the weather was hot just like the summer wedding i always wanted but i was able to use the fall colors i love! when i was changing out of my wedding dress at the end of the night i got sad...i didn't want to the day to end!


-Robert turned 29! (secretly can't wait to plan his 30th birthday bash for next year!)

the man of my dreams.

it's amazing what marriage does. My mom made the comment a few days back that me and my sister both just look different since we got married. Like we're content and settled. and I owe this contentment to this guy:

this is a picture of Robert from my 22nd birthday, we had been together only a little over 2 months. Its fun to look back at that time and now really realize that he is officially forever mine. Back then it was just a "i know someday." but now it's i KNOW.

ok this post is way shmoopy. But i just love him. Happy almost 3 week-a-versary Roberto.

a few more for your enjoyment (or mine):

We were talking last night about us in high school, and if we had been in high school together if we would've liked each other. and we decided i would secretly like Robert because he was a good guy who didn't like any girls, therefore i would want him badly. But me, being the punk-rock princess i was would not openly like him but continue to date the losers i did. This made me realize how lucky i am to have gained the testimony i have to follow the straight and narrow so that Robert and i could be together. and now i can continue to grow into the woman he deserves. for this i am grateful.

Ok here it goes, Maui Waui:
We got to our hotel just in time for the perfect Hawaiian sunset.
There were all sorts of birds and parrots and even African penguins just chillin everywhere.
Our first morning at the most delicious breakfast buffet ever.
Robert's first time in a Hawaiian ocean and it wasn't even that warm...or blue :/

YES even I went snorkling...and completed my Hawaii goal of seeing sea turtles! So many beautiful plants!

My first pizza buffet...and it was worth all 5 pounds.

Robert always raves about all the good food he ate in Brazil and Cane Juice was one of them so I def had to try it...again, totally worth it.
This is about 1 minute before Robert cut open his hand and toe...and yes he did trip because i had screamed and he was coming to rescue me :)

The Road to Hana.

The first of many stops to see a waterfall, it was so green and wet!
I was not the biggest fan of these signs.

i look angry, but he looks REALLY cute.
just drivin' by another beautiful waterfall...
Black Sand Beach!
Seven Sacred Pools!
Robert swimming for the waterfall in the pools.
Proof that i got in too.
Saying good-bye to the Hyatt...you were so good to us :(
We found another place to dip our feet on the way to the airport at the Iao State Park.
and it just happened to be absolutely gorgeous.

yes, I washed my hands in that sink.

finally, the saddest moment ever, waiting for our shuttle at the rental car place to take us to the airport and back to California...:(

all in all it was the PERFECT wedding and the PERFECT honeymoon...and now we're ready for the PERFECT Christmas!
