Rance Rizzutto carved the likeness of Aphasia into a pumpkin!


Also this year my Momma made Jeff and I each a halloween costume.

I felt so loved.

She stayed up several nights in a row till 4 am then her and my Dad hopped in the truck and drove to a 24 hour post office to get them to us in time.

I love my parents.

I had so much fun that night showing off our homemade costumes.

Us walking to the resort tennis courts.

If I had played tennis in high school I would have wanted these guys on my team.

Nothing but Love-Love for you guys!

Chickens and Cornbread

After Waimea Canyon we went to a restaurant lodge place and I bought some chicken feed.

Things got a little out of hand as more and more chickens came out from all over the place.

I was a little frightened but it reminded me of my favorite song from Mary Poppins "Feed the Birds."

Afterwards Brett and I ate delicious homemade cornbread soaked in butter.

We then realized that cornbread and windy roads isn't such a great idea and I proceeded to gag the whole way back.

Favorite soundbyte of Brett's "The butter from the cornbread dripped on my shorts in the shape of the Hawaiian islands."

Great day with great people.

Lost (The T.V. Show) Photos

Brett, Jeff and I stumbled upon several LOST locations one day.

It was pretty darn cool.

The "others" camp.

Anyone could just walk around.
"other's" security cameras.

I guess the playground gets blown up next season.

My house if I was an "other".

I still can't believe I got to see it.

Good Bye Hawaii!

Thank you Hawaii for the best eight months ever!

I loved every minute of it.

I'm off to San Antonio for the holidays then off to Chicago.

Best life ever.

Thank you God.

Paypal Look-A-Like

I got 3 facebook messages yesterday saying I looked just like the girl on

I kinda think we do look alike and I never think people look like me.

What do you think?


One of the things I am going to miss most about Hawaii is playing tennis.

I have played tennis pretty much twice a week for the last six months.

I had to take the month of September off because I got to angry and needed to calm down.

I got so angry that I threw my racket on the ground and it bended the top of it into a square.

I call it my sponge bob square racket.

That's right I have a love/hate relationship with tennis.

My whole life I have only played team sports: volleyball, soccer and basketball.

I was always very athletic.

In fact my Mom used to take my brother and I out to play tennis in the summer time and it was fun but mainly a cardio type thing.

Playing tennis in Hawaii has made me realize how much I missed out not playing an individual sport.

In tennis you can really only get mad at yourself but I like to get mad at Brett.

Brett drives me insane playing tennis.

My blood boils and I want to hit him with the tennis ball which I have done successfully.

He in turn hit me right in my crotch then doubled over in laughter.

Tennis has done wonders for my body.

I feel like its the sole reason I have a waist again.

Just all the twisting and turning and my arms seem a little firmer as well.

I just love love love tennis and the camaraderie its built.

I'm going to miss is sooooooooooo much =(

But I told Jeff we would play my Mom and brother in San Antonio.

Here's a few actions shots and a video of us warming up!

The barista spelled my name right all on her own.

That has never happened.

I did a wheat grass shot with Brett and it made me throw up.

Can you find my little friend?

Went on a train ride and fed pigs.

I love walking by the Marriot Resort right before nightfall.

My new friend Brettina.

Group of little kids playing the ukelele.

Very impressive.
