My mom came to visit this month and I got a job. The day my mom got here I got a call saying that I got hired. Luckily the first week I didn't have to work too many days so my mom and I still got to do a lot while she was here. It's nice to finally have a job and get out of the house. So while my mom was here we got to do a lot of fun things:
We got to watch a sea turtle leave the water so it could come sun it's self on the beach, it was pretty cool to watch. They are such amazing creatures.
We went and visited the Pearl Harbor Memorial, what a great tribute to such a horrible tragedy.
We went to the huge swap meet the circles the Aloha Stadium
It was a long walk and it was super hot out that day
We went snorkeling at Hanauma Bay
And we spent a few days just relaxing on the beach laying in the sun
Luckily the weather was beautiful the whole week that my mom was here, the week before and after she came was a down pour. So glad that the weather was nice, it would have been such a miserable vacation if it would have been rainy the whole time. It was a lot of fun that she came, I'm glad she got to get away and relax.

So I came home from work to a great surprise. We weren't sure if we were going to get a Christmas tree this year, with the prices of trees being so expensive in Hawaii and money being tight. So we still hadn't decided if we were actually going to get one or not. So James picked me up from work, we get home and I'm just so tired all I can think about is relaxing and changing my clothes. I get in the house set my things down in the living room and James is acting all suspicious, but I can't figure out why and then I notice the beautiful Christmas tree set up in the living room. What a great surprise, it looked so beautiful, James did an amazing job. I couldn't believe that I walked in the living room and didn't even notice. It's a small tree but it's so perfect!
