Things I love about Hawaii, and the things I don't like so much:)

I love...
Everyone wears slippas (flip flops) and removes them before coming into your house, even the servicemen.

That if your 13 year old son forgets his shoes while going to a doctors appointment, its ok! No one even bats an eye. (except for me, floors are NASTY)

 I am  with in walking distance to everything.

I can go days without driving my car.

When walking down the street, people I don't even know (they know us because our WHOLE family spoke at church last Sunday) say "Hi Sharps!"

You can order spam, eggs and rice at McDonalds, (I haven't yet but one day I am going to make my boys try it) Spam is really big here.

My House

When the serviceman comes to the door. Instead of knocking  he says over and over again, "Carrie, Carrie, Carrie" not sure why I love that one but I do.

When calling the intermediate school to ask a question about my registration packet that was not complete .due to school error.The head hauncho happened to answer the phone and was very upset at her helper who made the mistake so instead of putting me on hold, started to yell at the other lady. She was calling her stupid, etc..Cracked me up! Then she  came back to me sweet as can be.



I actually like the drive to Honolulu, its beautiful, it takes an hour to go to Target, walmart or costco but its a great drive.

My husband is making money at his dream job! So he's happy I am happy!

Long Sleeve shirts can be made into short sleeve..oh yes I did:)


Cockroaches!!!!! These boogers are gigantic!!!

Sand....still trying to figure out how to keep it out of the car.. No success yet..

$5 a gallon milk...my kids drank a lot of milk before we moved here, not anymore.

That every time we go anywhere we have to all put sunblock on!

My friends and family are so far away..


  1. Hawaii is why I only where slippas and sandals now.

  2. I love that list! Totally made me laugh

  3. Lots of good things to love. I'm really enjoying hearing about your new life in Hawaii.

    HAPPY Birthday!

  4. I love the one about the school official yelling at the secretary. That would have been awesome to have witnessed! I am so sorry about roaches. If you spray every doorway, I think it will help. Just all around the doorway...windows too. That was my least fave thing about NYC. I'll bet yours are bigger. So sorry!

  5. I need a "Pose" I'm laughing sooooo hard. Long sleeve to short? Perfect! Your "like" list is way longer then your "dislike". PHEW!
