Christmas Vacation....

...In Hawaii!

Yesterday we finally left for our Christmas Vacation in Kawaii, AKA mine and Brant's "babymoon".

Our flight left around 11 am Dallas time yesterday morning, and we arrived in Honolulu around 3:40 pm Hawaiian time (which is 4 hours behind Dallas). Truth be told, I was dreading the 8-hour flight, but it really wasn't too horrible. However, as soon as the pilot turned on the feature video, we learned that about 7 rows in the main cabin (which, of course, we were sitting in) had a technical problem and our sound equipment didn't work. So instead of watching two feature films with sound, we just watched in silence...not so fun! But nevertheless, we made it to Honolulu, had a 2 hour layover, then had a quick 20 flight to Kauai.

We are staying in a great condominium, so before we even left the city to go to the South Shore, we ran by Walmart and got some groceries and a few items we needed. Pretty much as soon as we got everything unloaded at the condo, we hit the sack. It was about 10:00 Hawaiian time, meaning our bodies thought it was almost 2 am - tired doesn't even begin to describe how we felt. Here is a quick inside glimpse of our condo.

Brant woke up around 6:30 this morning, which of course woke me up, so we decided it would be great to head down to the beach to watch the sunrise. We weren't quite sure where we were going, so we just drove until we found a spot that looked accessible. We ended up on some gorgeous rocks and were able to see the sun peak through the clouds. It was so beautiful!

Well I hope that each of you is having a fabulous day, so far, and I hope to update a bit each day!
