The Coffee Shack

Posted by on Nov 13, 2012 in Life & Adventures | 2 comments

On Saturday Chris and I took an hour drive to Captain Cook, just south of Kona, and went to a cute little place called the Coffee Shack. It felt like we were sitting in a little tree house with an amazing view of the ocean. I would like to visit it again, and if you are ever on the “Big Island” I highly recommend the quaint and cozy Coffee Shack!

Akaka Falls

On Friday Chris and I decided to go visit Akaka Falls, on the Hilo side of Hawaii. The name of the waterfall may not be so pretty, but the waterfall itself was beautiful!




This post is for my soul sister Lelia, who wanted to see more of Hawaii.

Top Down or Up?

Posted by on Oct 31, 2012 in Life & Adventures | 1 comment

Down of course! Chris and I took our car in for an oil change. So we decided to rent a convertible for the day, to get the full Hawaii experience. I know life’s real tough;-) When I got behind the wheel and started to drive, all I could think was, “We don’t have kids. I always play it safe. Why didn’t we ever consider buying a sports car?!” Ok I’m sure Chris considered it. Me on the other hand, not so much. Even at the age of 18, I was thinking of things like gas milage, safety, and as my parents had drilled into me, what does consumer reports say? Dork! Anyway we had an awesome, fun day, and we still don’t plan on getting a convertible anytime soon:-)

It Only Took A Year

Posted by on Oct 31, 2012 in Life & Adventures | 4 comments

This time last year I had thought about starting up a blog. I was living in hot and sticky Viques, PR at the time, and remember feeling depressed because it was the first Halloween I had spent away from my three brothers in years. I would dress up with them and go trick or treating, and give them the candy when we were done, and because I stand only 5 feet tall, I could get away with this. I would usually wear a scary mask, and get comments like “Aren’t you a scary little thing?!” I’d think to my self “you have no idea.” Well the last time I went trick or treating with my brothers I was 25 years old. I thought to myself, “Girl you still got it, you don’t look 25!” And y’all know what I did? I decided to not wear a mask and go as a 50’s girl. So here I am having a good ole time, trick or treating in my parents neighborhood, with my awesome brothers, when we come up to this nice looking house, ring the door bell and low and behold a friend of mine that I grew up with and had loss touch with, opens the door to hand out candy. My heart sunk to the bottom of my stomach, and I felt like I could pass out from embarrassment. She put the candy in my bag and as I started to walk away she called out “Tabbi?” It was like everything had turned into slow motion and on the inside (remember now in slow motion) I say to myself “Oh Craaaapppp!) Anyway I just kept on walking, and tried to act like no biggie. My friend and I have actually reconnected, but I assure you it was not due to that embarrassing incident. So back to starting the blog… I wanted to do it a year ago, but I was in search of a perfect title and could not seem to get past that point. Now, a year later I finally came up with a conclusion, I should stop searching for perfection and just have fun with it. C’est la vie!!!
