Many Hats

Friday night, Pizza and Movie Night was back in full swing.  Only, instead of the usual toppings, I threw on some green peppers this time.  Rebel.  And because I was thinking ahead, I chopped up a bunch of extra onions for guacamole for Saturday.  🙂  Multi-tasker.  We attempted to watch Megamind and almost made it … Continue reading

Play dat Djembe!

Play dat Djembe!

After this afternoon’s glorious, much-needed nap (Seba’s, not mine), I remembered that Thursday nights are concert nights in the botanical garden near the crater.  Tonight’s concert was the last for this season, and it was an African drum ensemble, including dancers, called Sewa Fare.  I’ve been looking forward to seeing them perform for several weeks, … Continue reading

Yesterday’s little picnic goodbye party for Seba’s friend (just going away on vacation, thankfully!) went off pretty well yesterday.  There were four young kids, a middle-aged kid, an 18-year old, and the rest of us moms and a nanny. Our neighbor prepared local, grass-fed (from Molokai) beef burgers, which Seba happily gobbled up, along with … Continue reading

Doing Raw

It’s another late evening over here, so I’ll make this post short and sweet.  I just wanted to stop by to catch up with the latest and greatest, which actually aren’t anything remarkable, but there are a few new dishes we’ve had, so I wanted to share! Banana Oatmeal.  I have never liked banana bread, … Continue reading

Rainy Day Sunday

Rainy Day Sunday

The hike didn’t go off as planned.  We’ve got rain so thick here that it was impossible to see the ocean this morning.  It’s turned into a perfect, sunny afternoon, but too late to head out for a long hike.  Seba’s also getting all snotty and gross, as boys will do, so we stayed home … Continue reading

Discover!

Last night was our get-together with my husband’s boss.  Just a little evening potluck at the beach, followed by the fireworks, shot off at the Hilton every. single. Friday.  It’s a good thing we were down the coast a little ways, because Seba’s not the biggest fireworks fan, but they weren’t too loud on our … Continue reading

A Day in My Life

Last night was a doozy!  Seba napped yesterday for the first time in about a week, and only for about an hour and a half, and he was going strong until just after 9 last night.  I was up reading until about 12:30, which is very late for me!  And at 3:30 this morning, a little … Continue reading

Indulgences

Indulgences

It’s been a few days since I’ve checked in.  We’re on day 4 or 5 of a no-nap marathon with the boy, so I’m lucky to get much done at all!  We’ve been out enjoying the sunshine, and that’s much more important than anything I could have written here, anyway! I got some goodies at … Continue reading

Another Hummus Recipe

Another Hummus Recipe

It’s Sunday evening, and all’s well.  The boy has finally fallen asleep after a long afternoon of jumping and playing and splashing around in the pool! This morning after church, we went to Kapiolani Park for the 42nd annual Ukulele Festival. Basically, a bunch of ukulele vendors were there selling their instruments, and different groups … Continue reading

Kuli…uh-oh?

Kuli…uh-oh?

There were adventures in paradise today.  Since we had kind of a late night last night (Seba woke up from his “nap” around 10 and wanted dinner), we took it pretty easy breezy this morning.  I planned a little hiking trip for us, which I rarely do, but it was a gorgeous morning, and it … Continue reading
