Trick-or-Treat Smell-my-Feat

Halloween!! My friend Kelsey's favorite Holiday. I consider myself a somewhat creative person. But not when it comes to picking out Halloween costumes. I can never decide, nor do I think my ideas are ever clever enough. I think it is the Pisces in me. People out here in Hawaii keep telling me I look like Cindy Lou Who. What??? Really?? Never heard that before. So I could be Cindy Lou Who... or others tell me to be Pebbles.

But I think I will end up being something similar to this:

I wish it wasn't out of the norm for adults to go trick-or-treating with out having kids with them. Me and my friends in High School went up until our senior year. Nothin wrong with that! Maybe I'll just steal some little kids candy bag!


These little Hawaiian children better watch out for a zombie prom queen/cindy lou who/bloody bride/pebbles/dead princess out on the loose!

We have strong muscles....

..... and apparently like to show them off!

I was looking through all my pictures and found all these of me and Candice. Including pictures of us doing the same gun show pose 5 years ago. I am so blessed to be living the dream out here in Hawaii with my best friend. I am so excited for more poses in new exotic places!

I have to take a moment out of my busy schedule to talk about what I just ate. I normally don't blog about my food intake (although I should because I love food and I take pride in every bite I have), but what I just consumed was ridiculously delicious. Maybe it was because I hadn't eaten breakfast yet, and I was so hungered after watching my students play racquetball. I was thirsty too-- watching people work out is exhausting. And for the first time in awhile I was working in my office which is a rare occassion (I find it hard to get in work at my office when I don't really have to be here and the beach is screaming at me to come play with him. He doesn't like when I leave him alone, and I don't want to hurt his feelings, so I usually end up hanging out with him rather than working in my office.) Ok, back to my taste buds. So I leave my office to fill up my water bottle and I decide to grab something from the Seasider (food court on campus). I go in and grab an apple. An ordinary Red Delicious apple. It was just washed so it had a little bit of water droplets still on it. This was no ordinary apple. Something about this apple was different. It was sweeter than usual, or crisper, or I don't know. But it was GOOOOD. So good in fact, that I am now procrastinating my time in my office where I was committed to working and answering the 100's of unanswered e-mails of players that want to come to BYU Hawaii to play soccer, watching the DVDs of players highlighting their soccer skills, and planning a practice just so I can share with the blogging community that I had an incredibly scrumptious red apple. I think I can hear the beach crying. I better go cheer him up.

My Life

I moved back to Hawaii in July and this has been my life since then .....


PIZZA night!

At the airport after a game vs UH Hilo on the Big Island. Happy faces cuz we won!

Nothing better than North Shore shaved ice at the famous Matsumoto's with my favorite team.

At the hotel in Arizona ... again happy cuz we won.
We went to San Francisco for a week and played 3 soccer games. Winning them all!

We went to Seattle to play the Defending National Champs. Played great, but lost 0-1.

Team activity at the Polynesian Cultural Center where we watched the night show.

This was in place of a practice one day ..... BEACH DAY! We can do that when you live in Hawaii :) I know, I know ... I'm a cool coach. Haha

And I get paid to do this? With my best friend, and partner in crime? Life is TOO good!

(except she tried to throw me over the bridge)
