Not Your Typical Mother’s Day

I made sure to call my momma on Sunday. She’s definitely my everything. So selfless. So supportive. I’ve put her through a lot.. (LOVE YOU, MOM!)

For the last 3 weeks, Trevor and I have been waking up at 2:00 am every Saturday and Sunday morning to hike Stairway to Heaven. And for those 6 days, we’ve either woken up with a migraine (me), wanted to sleep in, attempted it twice, or it was too gloomy/windy/rainy. Despite all of that, Trevor was very persistent. Sunday morning, since it was raining, I made the executive decision to sleep in and lounge. I didn’t want to get blown off the mountain top! Plus, if it’s overcast, it’s not worth it. I want to experience this hike on a clear summer morning. And I’m willing to wait.

Lately we’ve been glued to our TV because we just started LOST (and the weather’s been crappy – at least on our side). A little late and we know the ending, but we’re kind of obsessed (just a little). We’ve also had fun yelling out what beach they’re on (in Hawaii/”The Island”). Trevor suggested we at least get dressed up and go to dinner – also, try to capture the sunset, or what little sun was out.

T found a place to take pictures and view the sunset – backside of Diamond Head (in Hawaii Kai). It was beautiful. We set up our tripod, tested the remote, and took a few pictures together.

Afterwards, we celebrated at one of our favorite restaurants, Roy’s!

The HK’s “Triple Play” – Tempura shrimp, spicy tuna, hamachi, yamagobo & garlic aioli. The best roll we’ve had!
