A Nice Evening Together

After returning home from an awesome day surfing at Goat island I grabbed my beautiful wife and we decided to do family home evening out of the home. We had a nice little dinner at subway where we split a $5.00 footlong (it was surprisingly just enough, I usually eat a footlong by myself). We then walked to the beach with a towel and our sweatshirts and spent about an hour talking about life and watching the waves. We discussed how important it is to enjoy life in the moment always taking advantage of today (which isn't that hard considering where we live). After sunset we decided to come home and enjoy some ice cream (mmmm). This has been another wonderful day in paradise.

This is the marvelously expensive grocery store that is just down the street from our apartment. It is the most expensive grocery store in the world. $7.00 for a gallon of milk seems pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Luckily we joined the grocery stores "club" and milk is now on sale for $4.50. Unfortunately milk goes bad, otherwise we would stack up.
But I can't complain, I live in hawaii, my school is awesome, my wife is amazing, and I go surfing with my best friend on tuesdays. Oh yeah, and look at the sunset behind Foodland. I know, glorious life. Even though it is really expensive to buy groceries it would be even more expensive to eat out all the time. We have been doing really well about eating at home. Last night we had Chicken, mashed potatoes, Broccoli and Cauliflower, and some fruit on the side. And yes, I made it all before Amber returned home from work, and the house was clean. I am doing all that I can until I get a job. Well I would write more but we have to go to the beach with some friends and have a party in this beautiful 75 degree weather.

Our Apartment

Our studio is 600 square feet and it is located on the top floor of this three story house. We have a view of a lot of Laie including the temple and the beach, two of my favorite things. I look out at the ocean about 10 times a day. Our bed is made up of two different twins that we have pushed together and put up on cinder blocks.

We were living out of our suitcases for the first 2 1/2 weeks but now we have a bookshelf that we use as a dresser. It is nice to be out of our suitcases. We have two chairs and that is what it means to be fully furnished in Hawaii.
