The Sibling

My younger sibling has recently moved in with me, I’m excited and a little scared.  It happened all pretty quick.  The me a year ago would have said no to this plan, but I’ve done a ton of work on forgiving and I really do want to see Trice do better.  Since this change, we’ve been walking every morning at the park for about 2 hours.  It’s been nice, that’s how I got that shot of the ducks.  I even started playing Pokemon lol which gets me out of the house more  ...

Freedom

Our weekend was eventful, per usual. My younger sibling came up with Maria (the girlfriend), and we went one adventures.  Hit up a cool crystal shop near the strip, went to the indoor swap meet — wanted to fight the lady at the door, copped some of Conor McGregor’s whiskey and watched the fight, checked out Pure Aloha, and saw the nephews.  So we had full house since Trice was in town, and come Monday my house was quiet.  Our older two went to Utah for a month to spend time with my  ...

Calories Don’t Count When You Eat Asian

Today my daughter and I went grocery shopping at the asian markets and she wanted to hit up this brand new spot called Takopa, a Japanese Street Food joint. So like any ordinary mother would say to her young adult child, YOU PAY! It’s on Spring Mountain and Wynn, right by 99 Ranch Market. My daughter got the Shio Ramen, this one is a chicken based broth, she usually get the Tonkatsu Ramen from Izakaya Go (same owner) but I think this is going to be her new spot. It was so good! It  ...

A Sunday Well Spent Brings a Week of Content

I live for our Sunday mornings together. Not gonna lie, before going to church, our Sunday’s consisted of late starts, lazy energy and we all stayed in our own rooms majority of the day. Now we get up early, hit the town and go on adventures and find cool spots like this place. We actually didn’t go to church today, but we usually will drop off my oldest son — because he does Life Group with his friends in this morning and then they have Worship Practice (if you’re not  ...

Jesus Saves, I Spend

I did a little shopping today. Wanted to get some “religious” home decor. I use that word lightly just to make it easier for you to get what I’m talking about. I also gifted myself two new decks because I earned some extra money today. By the way, I want to shout out my sister-in-law, Maria, for blessing us up. Thank you, sissy! I’m so proud of all the progress you’ve been making with yourself and I can’t wait to see you and Trice next weekend. I’m  ...

Do You Even Devo, Bro?

I’m am 58 days deep into doing daily devotions and journaling about what I’m learning from the Bible and trying to apply these teachings to my life.  I feel so content and satiated — on a whole other level that I cannot even begin to explain.  If you would’ve told me last year around this time that I’d be going to church consistently, serving, and doing devotions, I would’ve called your crazy and probably laughed.  Almost 2 months into this and I feel like a  ...

Our Future

This pic is getting printed and placed into a frame! It really gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling to see the youth contributing to our church. I’m overflowing with gratitude that my son, Kainoa, softened his heart and went from being a full blown introvert and atheist, to serving the Lord and being so open to learning new things. He went from wanting to be apart of the worship team and learning piano, to learning how to be the audio guy and manning the soundboard, and now he’s learning how  ...

Weekend Vibes

Such a nice weekend with the kids and Kame’i. Since we’ve started going to church consistently and serving, our lives have made a huge shirt. I thought by doing this we would be drained — energetically & financially and also never have time for our family. I was totally wrong. I feel completely fulfilled an look forward to our weekends, even with all the extra driving during the week, late evenings at church, will still manage to put gas in our car (living paycheck to paycheck off  ...

What Happens in Vegas

Late post but this weekend was family filled. My dad came to visit, we celebrated my nephews birthday and had a BBQ with friends and family at Tahiti Village for Labor Day. Mahalo Winnie and Charlie for inviting us! It was so much fun I forgot to make videos. I have a few I’ll share here from my story. Wish I took more so you could see the pool and the lazy river.
