Christmas droppings

I think Hawaii knew it was Christmas earlier this week. Monday and Tuesday had temperatures in the 70's (which is very rare) just so we could have that dreary 'its cold outside' feeling Christmas day. It was perfect.

Before I left, I was bored at work and decided to read the rules for my flight and boy am I glad I did. What is normally 50lbs for a checked bag with any and every other airline, my airline only allows 40lbs! I wasn't bringing much in the first place, so I thought I was safe and come the morning of my flight, I casually got on my scale with my bag, thinking I was safe, when in fact it had me right at 50lbs.

Panic started to set in. Everything in my bag HAD to come. I wasn't bringing a carry on, so there was no other option BUT to begin eliminating things. And let me tell you, it was a very difficult process to decide what could actually stay behind.

In the end: my beloved zoom lens..that weighs 2lbs alone. The rice cooker (yes, I was bringing a rice cooker).. and my laptop. A very very very difficult choice. Since I was sacrificing my laptop, I threw my hairdryer back in and said my airline would have to accept it.

Thankfully they did at 41lbs.

I'm telling you that story to say, I have no pictures. I'm on G-man's laptop and in my sad haste, forgot to grab the usb cord to be able to upload all my pictures into his computer. Not to mention, he has a Mac and my PC ways aren't the most comfortable on it.

I've really been sitting back and enjoying the moments here, so even have very few to share through my iPhone.

G-man greeted me with a Christmas colored lei and it smelled absolutely amazing!

Another thing G-man did was surprise me with a Christmas tree. A cute little 4 footer that we decorated together and used my red sarong as the tree skirt.

He is heavy in the Christmas spirit this year, and got all the ingredients for us to make homemade eggnog. It wasn't too bad for homemade.

I've been having such a great time this week, and I hope you've had such a great time yourself this Christmas season. I have so much more to share (that involves a bottle, a reindeer and the a/c) so gear up for some {belated} Christmas tales, because they'll be coming soon.

Oh-em-geee! I would've had a heart attack had I had to decide which 10 lbs to leave behind. That is SUCH a difficult thing to do. G-man sounds like an amazing guy! So sweet of him to greet you with that beautiful Christmas lei AND a cute tree to decorate together! He's a keeper, huh?! (DUH BECKY... you've established this a long time ago, I know...lol) So glad you're having an awesome time. (((hugs)))

Enjoy your man! I mean he could so easily be with his mistress instead! Or on location for a movie.

Hair dryers are a must, don't Hawaiians have rice cookers?
