We’re booked, are you?!?

April 6th, 2009

Corey and I are booked.  Plane ticket and hotel.

We’ll be arriving on the 16th, do not feel obligated to arrive that soon as your presence is not required until the 18th!  We’ll be leaving on the 25th after spending some quality time with the beach, sand, and a few Mai Tai’s.

What are your travel plans?  We like comments so tell us what you are doing!

Where it all started…

April 1st, 2009

Sydney and I became friends during a field trip to The Big Island of Hawaii. Here is a group picture of all of us near South Point.

At a loss

March 25th, 2009

I’m at a loss… 

We’ve booked our date, our location, time, and even dinner is booked.  The hard part is done.    The remainder of our wedding arrangements will commence in June, 3 months before our wedding.  That’s where the cake, flowers, dinner, etc will be discussed and finalized.  Now what am I supposed to do with myself.  I’m at a total loss for something to do.  It’s like this huge let down has occurred after all these months of looking and deciding.

I suppose, if I wasn’t avoiding it, we could start browsing through invitation styles, but I like the avoidance of it, it’s more productive to me ;o)

I don’t hate sandcastles but I like this picture.

Something to do – Seahorse Tour

March 21st, 2009

I am always discovering something new and cool to do on the Island so I will try to post a short message to share with you.

Today I am writing about Ocean Rider’s Seahorse Tour which is located in Kailua-Kona. They are an aqua-farm that specializes in breading Seahorse. One hour tours are offered at the farm with an opportunity to interact with live Seahorses. Check them out here.

Sydney and I are planning on checking them out. Who knows, I might have to come home with one…

The date is set!

March 20th, 2009

Well folks, we are one step closer to having wedding information for you!!!  I know, it’s been a long time and coming.  We got our final draft of our contract with the hotel.  Once it is signed and the down payment made, we’ll have a good amount of information to share with you.  Unfortunately, we can’t divulge any information until the contract is signed (as stated in our contract).  So hang tight, we should have some goodies for you by the end of the weekend!!!

Hello world!
