My Family...

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Randy was laying down, relaxing and watching tv, when all of a sudden both Mick and Mattie decided to make themselves comfortable...
For those of you who don't know, Randy weighs about a buck 35-40, and Mattie is about 80 lbs (maybe more!), Mick is about 50 lbs...
Yes, he was actually sleeping in this shot (snoring, as a matter of fact!)

Carolyn and Christopher

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Carolyn and Chris renewed their vows yesterday at Kaimuki Christian Church. They were married a year ago, but never got to celebrate with their family and friends. They flew in from Seattle on Wednesday, and Carolyn's family and friends came all the way from Melbourne, Australia!

We started off the morning at the Ilikai Hotel, where the girls and Carolyn's family got ready, and Jalna headed to Adleen's house to catch some pictures of the guys freshening up

After the ceremony we quickly headed over to Hale Koa for the reception, but made a stop on the beach first
Then the courtyard...
These are our new friends, Maya and Makoto...

Okamura Wedding Sneak Peek

Hale Koa Hotel

Randy's ex co-worker Adleen had asked me a few months ago if I could take pictures at her son's wedding. I jumped at the chance and dragged Jalna along with me. We had a long day (it started at 4 am) so I'm only posting a few of my favorites...more to come later! Be sure to check out Jalna's blog in a few days to see her awesome pics!

One of my BFFs was stuck in Japan...

Check out my girlfriend's blog...she got stuck in the whole earthquake fiasco last week. Thank goodness she made it home safely to blog about it:

Crazy for Paper Crafting

oh yah, for those of you who don't know, DH = Dear Husband. I had no idea. I had to ask her what that was. MIL = mother in law, I knew that one, does that mean I'm kinda up to date??

Don Quijote Parking Lot, Kaheka

If you had seen Jalna's post the other day, she visited our co-worker CQ's brother's yakitori cart in the Don Quijote parking lot. The food looked really good, and since he's only open from 4-9 we all decided to head on over there after work today to try it out. Even our buddy Erick came over from HMSA to join us. Such a convenient location for us yah??

I took my new toy with me to try it out tonight. So far I love it! Here's Erick tasting the bacon wrapped shishamo:
Susie enjoying the nori wrapped mochi...yummmm...Jalna's favorite
Even CQ's daughter Kaori comes out to help!
Marvin lovin' the gyu tongue...I loved it too!
Bacon wrapped asparagus, another favorite of ours
Look at Jalna's expression...priceless!
Chicken wing & pork belly
Here I am tasting the shishamo...yummy!
Jalna didn't quite agree.
The happy gang :) Thanks Jalna!!

Happy Birthday to Meee!

Friday, March 11, 2011

Ever since Jalna got her 5D MKII I've been insanely jealous and been wanting one of my own. Except the darn thing was so expensive I thought it would have a permanent spot at the top of my wish list. Well, thanks to Randy (for a wonderful birthday envelope!), my buddy Annette and my new friend Hanson Fong, I was able to treat myself to a special birthday gift to myself this year!!

Here's me all happy at work! Jalna took this with my camera phone...
Introducing my new baby! Notice the awesome Crumpler neck strap Jalna bought me for my birthday...
Hmmm, now only to find something to shoot...
