My first child is a boy. But I thought he was going to be a girl. While pregnant, I had a VERY realistic dream about it and was CONVINCED. My best friend was so convinced by my certainty, she bought a mountain…

We’re Pregnant!

  So I’ve heard it time and time again… the middle children never get as much attention as the first. The novelty has worn off and parents have already “been there, done that.” I’m a first-born … so I wouldn’t know about that… ha ha! My husband, Kaimi, is the second child and he jokingly… Read More

TRAVEL CHANNEL: Making Ti Leaf Lei

To sustain ourselves during our intense 3-day shoot we had to make sure to fuel our bodies with onolicious (yummy) food! The two spots that ended up getting featured in our Travel Channel episode were Kahuku Superette and …

I have to admit, dirt biking has never been on my list of things I must do in my lifetime. I like to have a little more “protection” between me the ground and other moving or fixed objects that could cross my path. I’ve always been kind of a scaredy cat…
