Back from Hawaii!

I'm back from Hawaii...unfortunately. I wish I was still there. Oahu was awesome! Thanks for all the ladies that helped me plan my trip. I didn't get that many good pictures =(.

Here are a couple pictures. Please excuse the bad quality. We took all these with our point and shoot underwater camera.

Swam with sharks, I was in a cage of course. But WOW there were so many sharks! I could basically touch them..but I wasn't stupid enough to stick my hand out.

My fav thing to do - Pig out at the shrimp trucks!

Snorkeling at Hanauma bay. Look at this big zebra fish hehe

Horseback riding along the beach.

We hung out with some friends and locals. It turns out that two of our friends were in Hawaii the same time. We met the owner of 88 tees that weekend. She has awesome tees by the way! Very funky and "harajuku". Check it out here. She was taking out this Japanese popstar/actor named ka-kun so we hung out and had a couple drinks with them (Josh and I are in the back..I'm in the pink dress). Ka-kun kept insisting that Josh looked like Tom Cruise. I saw no resemblance LOL.

Other things I did: hiked Manoa Falls, ate lots of shave ice, sun bathed at the beach.

One HORRIBLE thing did happy on my trip however. We rented a Jeep wrangler convertible. Before hiking Mauna falls, I LOCKED my iphone inside of the glove compartment. I guess it is really easy to break into because when I came back, my phone was gone! When we went swimming with the sharks, we purchased a DVD of ourselves...those punks stole our DVD!!! I mean, I could have understood the iphone, but a dvd? That video meant a lot to us because it was irreplaceable. Well, I'm over it now though. I still had fun the rest of the trip!

chrissie- I did a lot of the things from the list you gave me! I had a plate lunch at Rainbow drive, Napples at Zipps, Ramen, had shave ice (3x). I missed out on a couple things but I hope to get to them next time I go. I went to Kailua but missed out on Lanikai juice =\. I did go to Boots and Kimmi and had the best macadamian pancakes. yummmy!
jeni - I didn't get to visit Cinnamon Girl, hopefully next time!
ali - I didn't get a chance to visit Fighting Eel this time either =(
r+v - Got my giovannis! We actually went out on a shrimp eating marathon! I tried about 4 of them LOL. Giovanni's still got my vote for the best GARLIC shrimp!

Vacation is over =(. Time to plan the next vacation. Paris? Italy?
