sunshine through the clouds

I have a little secret. Only some people actually know about it. There was one little glitch that I was worried about...but it worked out fine. Ben comes home on the 25th of July...and on the 29th we are getting on a plane and going to Hawaii!!!

This isn't the trip that I was trying to win. I am not sure when/if I will find out about that trip.

As most people know, I am babysitting my friend's children while she goes to nursing school during the day. Well, the "payment for my services" is she is going to watch all the kids (and Astro) so that we can go. We will be attending a conference for junior officers & their spouses. So our flight, hotel and a lot of our food is already paid for. I am so excited. I can't wait to go and reconnect with Ben. It just also happens to be our 10th anniversary this month. So what a fun way to celebrate.

I am so looking forward to going to Wal Mart, the Polynesian Culture Center, Wal Mart, Cheesecake factory, Pearl Harbor & the Arizona, Wal Mart, Diamond Head, Old Navy...

So, so excited. The spouses only have to be at the conference until noon, so I am planning to try to get a lot of my shopping done while Ben is still in the conference. I am just really looking forward to this trip.

Julie & Wendy- if you know of any health food stores where I can find gluten free products would you let me know? Thanks

HOw fun for you!!! I've never been to Hawaii and I always thought it sounded fun, you'll have to post lots of pictures. The trip comes at a great time, enjoy all that free time with your hubby! (by the way- my fav cheesecake at the Cheesecake factory in the White chocolate caramel macadamia nut, it is sooooooo yummy!! I reccomend it!)
