Hawaii

So call us crazy but - 
we totally bought tickets to Hawaii last night for next month!!!!
One of Bentleys best friends is getting married in the Laie temple on the 21st :)


I absolutely LOVE celebrating LOVE, and will take any excuse to go to Hawaii. Plus we got married there, thats reason enough in itself to visit.... frequently right?! :P
We aren't living outside our means- or going irresponsibly overboard. The tickets were a screaming deal; practically begging us to buy them. Seriously this is the time of year to go to Hawaii! 
We are on a frugal newlywed budget, and keep to it very well. 
 BUT I did receive a very nice and unexpected reimbursement from Cuesta for OVERPAID tuition! Who does that? 
I won't blame it on the hair color that would be too easy and detrimental to all the beautiful and brainy blondes out there. 
After I updated my FAFSA to my now "married" status things changed in my favor with FAFSA
FOR ONCE :)
and voila

Christmas Our first one

So this is only a month late :) Here it goes, a few photos of our morning which was full of surprises!
He knows me sooooo well! 
I may or may not have woken up at an absurd hour that morning, our kids will love that someday.
As soon as I walked out of the bedroom I walked into this subtle note. Only to find just around the corner. . . 


This Beauty! (Bent is Good) 
My Vanity that I saved up for and bought when I was in 7th grade was stolen the first week we moved in. 
I love where we live, it's filled with darling people, but seriously. C'mon, we were obviously moving IN not getting rid of Beautiful furniture full of makeup and a few priceless pieces of jewelry. (I'm still a little sour about that) But my hubby did a great job picking this one out :)
Totally my style.


We enjoyed the rest of the morning relaxing, eating sun-dried tomatoe and artichoke heart omelets with smoked apple sausage, turkey bacon and cinnamon rolls go big or go home
Our first Christmas was so nice and relaxing. I cant wait for the next one!
