Our Current Surroundings!

We have settled in nicely!  But here in Hawaii, it is not about the is all about the outside!!!

We live in Brigham Young University Hawaii, married student housing!
This is where we call "Home" right now!  It is small but cozy!  When we arrived  it was not "home"...but we have been working on it to make it ours!
This is our little living room!  Small but sweet!  Add a mirror and it seems twice as big!
This is the dining area four feet in front of the couch!  But we even have room for some company to have dinner with us!!
This is our little kitchen!  We feel so blessed to have so many conveniences!  From a previous experience, we are especially thankful for constant POWER and clean, constant WATER!!
Our little bathroom needed alot of work!  The humidity and previous students had really USED it a lot!
So I painted the tub with Rustoleum Enamel white paint and regrouted a bit.  We bought some shelving and a new shower curtain.....please notice the frog couples under beach umbrellas!  Perfect for us!  Don't you think?

And in THIS CORNER (of the bedroom) is our little office!  It is a bit tight but we like being close together anyway! We laugh a lot about bumping into one another. It is really a little heaven for us! is not about "inside" when you are in Hawaii!  It is ALL about OUTSIDE! During Christmas break, we tried to go beach hopping!  We are glad that we did because now we are way busier and don't have that kind of time.  So please allow us to share.....

Hukilau Beach is one of our favorites.  It is not very busy in the mornings and is only a ten minute walk from our apartment.

We love to walk to the temple in the beautiful weather!

Of course, beaches abound!  The yellow tape on this beach was because of the high tide and heavy undercurrent. Danger!  No swimming was allowed that day!

Kawela Bay

Waimea Bay

This was taken right outside our apartment.

Laniloa Beach

We took this at Turtle Bay!  

We visited the Dole Pineapple Plantation on a bright sunny day and enjoyed a pineapple sundae!  We feel so blessed to serve on this beautiful  island which God has created!


"The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.  For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it...." (Psalms 24:1-2)
