Hey guys! I'm on Hawaii time and loving it! I wish I could be a morning person in real life. I have gotten so many things done today and it's not even 10am here.
I am sitting in the same hotel Bob and I came to on our honeymoon almost 13 years ago. On our honeymoon we told ourselves that we would come back here for our 10 year anniversary. Turned out a trip like this wasn't doable in the middle of residency and moving to Fort Worth, so we never made it back. This trip still wouldn't be doable for us if it wasn't for it being a paid work trip for Bob. It was so crazy that his conference happened to be in Kauai at the excact hotel we honeymooned in. It was meant to be! The only bummer is that Bob has to be in meetings from 7-1pm every day but that is the only reason I am blogging and I am so happy about it! I am years behind on blogging and I have been so sad about it so I am going to try and catch up on the last couple years. I will back post most of them so I will be able to find them one day.
Before I start reminiscing about the past let me talk about the amazing-ness of what is happening right now. This place is breathtakingly beautiful. Getting here was rough but that's only because I have a severe anxiety flying and traveling away from my children. So the combo was a dosey. There was a point in the flight were the turbulence was so bad for almost an hour straight. People were puking left and right. It was crazy. I get motion sickness so easily so I had already taken some prescription meds that saved me from drawing attention to myself. I am like the loudest thrower upper ever. Bob says it's like I'm calling for dinosaurs.
Anyways, after all that it has been nothing but sunshine and rainbows!
And to top it all off, I basically had dinner with Britney Spears last night. Yep. Britney Spears! I still can't get over it and I have taken my celeb sighting to a level of annoyance with Bob. He probably wants to say (or sing to me) You Drive Me Crazy. I just can't help it though! Oops..I Did It Again.
We went to eat dinner at a place in the hotel last night and the second I sat in my chair and looked up I saw her. I was thinking no way that's really Britney sitting just tables away from me and I whisper to Bob, I'm like 90% sure that Britney Spears is here! He turns around to look and immediately tells me I'm wrong. The more I stare the more certain I am and we even made eye contact like 5 times. I couldn't stop staring! I even put on my sunglasses so I could stare without her knowing but it was way weird since in was dark in the place. So I just embraced my creepiness and gave her the wide open mouth smiles every time she would look at me. She got up to use the restroom and the second she stood up a bodyguard followed behind her. That's when Bob was like, omg you are so right babe! She looked fantastic and so cute! Every time a waiter would come by our table and ask how things were I would say did you guys know Britney Spears is here?! They would laugh and say that they were told not to say anything or tell anyone that she was there. The manager even came by and asked if we were celebrating anything. Bob says, yes our 13th anniversary and I say Britney Spears! Haha!
Naturally I woke up at 5:30 this morning and went straight to the hotel gym. These two things never happen on vacation but I felt like it's what Britney would do!
The girls are having a blast with my parents and my mom dad are rocking the school/soccer practice craziness like champs. Face time has been so fun!
Bob and I only had a few pictures from our honeymoon but we are trying to redo each photo on this trip.
This one wins most improved for sure! The first pic was 13 years ago and my nerve damage and muscle weakness was so bad from my accident that I couldn't even walk on the sand. Bob had to carry me everywhere. There is a cliff on the ocean that has an incredible view. Bob put me on his back and carried me all the way to the top on our honeymoon. Yesterday we walked it hand in hand in flip flops! Pretty cool. God is good!
