Mele Kalikimaka!!!

Or the alternative title of: Robyn has a lucky feather stuck up her bum!

This is just a quick check in to say that tomorrow morning mike & I will be flying off to Honolulu for the week! Hellzzzzz yessssssssss! How did this all come about? Well, Mike will be in Honolulu for a week long training course and I'm tagging along because this is one of those trips that the Navy says its ok to bring your spouse! Yay Navy! My accompanying him was a last minute decision - we decided Monday and I don't really feel prepared or like its actually happening but we're getting up at 4am tomorrow morning so I guess its real! :)

In other news and lucky feather related - I have an incredibly thoughtful and generous husband! I got my Christmas present today - 20 days early but for good reason - Mike bought me a digital SLR Nikon camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT!!!!!!!! I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!! Its something we've both been wanting for a few years now and Mike already owns 4 Nikon lenses so that's how he came to purchase this camera. Nikon has been pretty consumer savvy, they could have made the SLR models with their own specific lenses thus forcing consumers to buy all new sets of lenses, but they didn't. If you have a Nikon lens that was made in the last 60 years, it will work on today's SLR models. I like things like that. I haven't figured out how to use it yet (we've been busy packing and tidying) but that's what the 6 and a half years of flying time is for!!!!

I'm bringing my laptop so I'll post photos of this weekends activities and Hawaii in the coming days!

PS - Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaiian for Merry Christmas! Think Bing Crosby...

  1. Now I'm super jealous because I both want to go to Hawaii and desperately want an SLR for Christmas which I know I'm not going to get. In the immortal words of Rod Stewart; "Some [girl] have all the luck"
