The BIG Shindigey Dig.... our new home!
This is our last day in Midway! I thought that I would never say this, but I really do miss the beauty of the snow, not so much the cold, but the views from inside!!!
Last Monday, Pike and I said goodbye to Utah, which by the way, was 17 degrees, and hello Hawaii. It was a little bit harder for me than Pike, but good nonetheless. I am really going to miss my family being so close, especially Scott, Tara, Caden and Abbie, and of course my parents who practically lived there with us! The last few months have been amazing and I am sad to say goodbye.
So this is Hawaii?!?!
Hawaii is incredibly beautiful! I have seen pictures and heard of its beauty, but nothing is more comparable then seeing it for yourself. It truly is a remarkable and breathtaking place. Im not gong to lie though, as we were driving I was a little upset, from what I had heard was that towards the north shore it was more country, which I guess it is, but my idea of country is minimal houses and more land! I was apparently wrong for thinking that, it is much more populated here then I ever imagined.
This past week we have been getting things settled and I am trying to learn where everything is... I think I have the basics down now. Pike has been busy with school, while I am still looking for a job! Our apartment is small but very nice and not to far from beach access. But when it is really windy, I am too chicken to walk down the steep and slightly slanted steps to it! I much more prefer driving down to the north shore!
Our ward is very friendly and the best part is that everyone is around our age, not our parents and grandparents! The funniest part is that the ward is small and within it there are 5 Lindseys! Its crazy but cool cuz I have only known of 2 other Lindseys growing up.
So far my favorite things:
Acai bowls! My friend Missy told me that I have to try them, and they are indeed magnificent! I really want to figure out how to make my own, the only problem is, I have no idea where to buy acai berries?! I also love just being in the sun... we are slowly working on our tans. We just tried this Thai restaurant with our friends Matty and Lindsay and it was delicious! We will definitely eat there again. We also have enjoyed watching the huge waves crashing right onto the shore line. Today they had to have been at least 20 ft! Awesome!
The weather has been great so far, at first I was nervous because it was just raining, but now the sun has been shinning and so has my smile! I love just going to the beach and watching the waves and surfers. The waves are suppose to get up to 30 + feet this week, so I am sure I will have some cool pictures of them!
This is our very cozy bedroom! We like it...the closet is a pretty good size and our sheets on the bed are amazing! Thanks mom and dad!!!
This is a picture I took before we unpacked everything... dont worry everything is put away and it looks a lot better! This picture is basically our family room/kitchen. I forgot to take pictures of the Kitchen side so I may post them another day. From this picture the kitchen is to the left. That door leads to outside and directly across from it is our bathroom, which I also didnt take a picture of...please be patient with me! I am still learning how to use a camera????
This is a what we do at the beach...Pike studies and I play with seals! haha...not really I was pretty scared of him because when I was standing by him he just kept staring at me and watching my every move!
Peace & Love::::: Pike's Place at 10:46 PM
