Post Honeymoon Blog

Hawaii was splendid. We stayed at the heart of Honolulu at a hotel called, Ohana Waikiki West. We had an ocean view suite overlooking the popular Waikiki Beach.

Oahu is pretty crowded. It's not like the fantasy paradise like Kauai, Hawaii - an island full of nature and beauty. Honolulu is more city like. A different vibe than what I'm used Hawaii to be. There were millions of tourists (Japanese) everywhere that it was almost impossible to relax. Dre and I opted to travel far away from the city to enjoy a more serene beach. (See the pictures above)

We took more photos of our trip but it's too much to post in this blog so I'll establish an online photo album sometime.

So in Hawaii we took a tour boat cruise (including a luau), went to a Polonesian Magic Show, went to the waterfront to see the Aloha Tower, Pearl Harbor (sad), and we checked out the International Market. We tried to see Diamond Hill (inactive volcano) but the place was crowded so we skipped out on it.

We would have gone snorkeling and scuba diving, but I got a little paranoid since that whole bit about a newlywed scuba diving murder story was in the news. Forget that!!!! Freaked me out. Ha ha... now I regret not going. We will when we travel back to Hawaii.

So married life is pretty nice. More peaceful than what others anticipated - but it comes along with marrying the correct person with no regrets. That always comes in handy.

Future things to look forward to. More trips, vacations, sight seeing... exploring! A little mini vacation with the hubby to Branson, MO in the near future, European trip in 2009 (meeting the in-laws - FINALLY!), and a Cruise to the Carribean with Rachel, Joan, and Judy!!!

Excitement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Babies will have to wait. I know that Arthur "TAGGED" me and said that I was next on the baby countdown... but hopefully in a year and a half or two I'll be ready.
