We are going to Hawaii in less than a month. I long for it. I long for the island music, the PERFECT climate, the happy people, the sweet smell of its air, the gorgeous landscapes, the peaceful feeling... I would so live there. I keep telling Justin he needs to get a teaching position at BYU-Hawaii of U of H or something. :) Maybe get his PhD there. :P No matter how many times I've been, I still get excited to go. This will be the third time for Justin and me together. And probably my tenth time.
Lest you think we are snooty, for the past six years, my parents have gone every summer to do service missions with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at BYU Hawaii. We stay with them and carpool and all that, so it makes it affordable and more real than just a dream vacation. Oh, I love Hawaii.
Here's how I am getting ready:
Saving our pennies (as much as possible between diapers and urges to buy island wear)
Diet!!!! (I've done low carbs low sugars for a week and I'm down 5 lbs. Yay!)
Tan! (Now that I am home, I go lay out every day. I know about skin cancer, I do. And as a rule I don't care about tanning, and I don't ever make an effort. This is an exception. And if you can't tone it - tan it!)
Already planning my island wardrobe! (and Joci's too!)
I am looking forward to
Hawaiian Shaved Ice
Giovanni's Shrimp truck
A good luau
The Horizons show at the PCC
Seeing my mom and dad
So, any tips on traveling halfway around the world with a 2 month old?
