The Busy Holiday Season

What have I been up to?

October 20th, 2012 - Joint Spouses Convention
It was a great day with some of my friends. I took a yoga class, chocolate making class, photography class, and healthy cooking class. The guest speaker was Mrs. Hawaii 2012 Stacey Snee - Former Navy, Navy Spouse, Mother, and more!

October 31st, 2012 - Threw a Halloween Party
I dressed up like a panda... everyone that didn't come in costume got to "create" a costume out of a grab box, and we had a delicious potluck style dinner while watching movies on the driveway and handing out candy.

November 8th, 2012 - The USMC Ball
Here's the outfit ladies... Thanks for your input.

November 12th, 2012 - A Day on the Water
We hit up Hickam Beach for a nice relaxing day of SUPing.

November 22nd, 2012 - Thanksgiving Dinner at our House
We hosted dinner at our house this year, we had a great spread and a wonderful time with friends.

December 1st, 2012 - The Electric Light Parade
We went to Honolulu City Light's Opening night parade.
December 2nd, 2012 - Tree & Lights
We had a grand adventure at the Helemano Tree Farm, once we got home we decorated the tree & house!
December 15th, 2012 - The Boat Parade
Most recently we went to the Festival of Lights Boat Parade with a group of friends.

Between all of the fun events with friends -
  • I've had 14 photo shoots- family, maternity, newborns, homecomings, Christmas, etc!
  • I'm trying to finish up my current photography course by the deadline (self-paced) of Jan 16th!
  • I'm planning a Christmas Cookie Tasting Party
  • I have one more photo shoot on the books before Christmas and one directly after New Years
  • We've had friends from our last duty station arrive on island and want to spend time with them
  • Hubby will be standing up for deployment again in January so trying to soak in time with him!
How is your holiday season going?
As busy as mine?
 I can't believe Christmas is only a week away!


  1. Oh how I have missed you, pretty lady! I was thinking of you just the other day! Glad to hear how life has been going for you! You looked GORGEOUS at the birthday ball! I think a cookie tasting party sounds like a fabulous idea! I'll have to remember that one!

    Have a very merry Christmas, friend!

  2. Welcome back! Seems you guys have been pretty busy :) I really wanted to go to the Spouses Conference, but even if I had tickets I wouldnt have been able to go, as I was on the mainland for emergency leave :( Im glad you had fun though!!! Your ball gown was beautiful :)


I love hearing from you all! =)
