sneak peak

alright, alright. good news...

and pick just which ones to post,
you'll have to wait a tid bit longer to see them.
however, here is a sneak peak....
this one's a winner!
isn't this a hoot? we love you, family!

spent the morning cleaning.
laundry galore, dishes stacked up, bathrooms, dusting shelves.
the whole sha-bang.
however, there was a twist to cleaning today.
i used our nifty new dyson vacuum.
holy moly! it works wonders.
seriously. best purchase yet.
the best part?
the genius ball on the bottom.
it enables you to spin and curve your vacuum instantly.
call me crazy. because its clear i'm in love with a vacuum.
and i know its odd, that i'm posting about this...
but, trust me- you would be too if you had a
vacuum that made you enjoy cleaning.
one that even made you dance around the house.
it was simply a good morning in the
stice residence, to say the least.

aloha! as almost expected, the lovebirds (that's us) spent our honeymoon in beautiful hawaii. the big island itself, actually. what a gorgeous place to see. from black sand beaches, forests, waves, to see turtles, spotless beaches, kon and lava rocks... we saw it all. we spent many hours hiking, eating, cuddling, snorkeling and exploring. take a look at these pictures! i'm sharing our luxurious honeymoon with you... well, kind of.
excuse our grossness in the sunburn and no make-up pictures! thanks!

just arrived! fresh off the plane...aloha!

our luxious hotel!
a big thanks for to our travel agent for the killer choice.

just the two of us. laughing on our balcony. lovely day.

these next 3 are pictures from our day on the other side of the island.
"hilo side."
definitely a day full of adventure...lots of hiking, wave diving, driving and sight seeing.
black sand beaches, lava rocks, hilo, cafe pesto, waterfalls, local friends,
wapio lookout! insanely pretty and cool.
look down to the beach. we hiked that distance. nuts.

akaka falls! a massive waterfall. biggest on hawaii.
a sight to see.

jumped out of our car and snapped this shot. loved this place.

best ice cream on the isalnd. white macadamia nut ruled our world. delicious.

shaved ice. a hawaiian classic. yum.

no words can describe the beauty of a sunset. we enjoyed many.

the lovebirds. at our favorite beach.

forever and ever.

thanks for the lovely honeymoon loverboy.
you're a babe in your suit.
and i'll forever crave coconut syrup.

at last!

look closely- image is on floppy discs. cool. source nick gentry.

we have internet in our home sweet home.
thank heavens.
loverboy can now spend his hours slaving away on homework
under our very own roof.
as opposed to nearest place with an internet connection.
i love this. i'm not home alone as much.

more importantly, thank goodness for this steady connection to the internet.
i have a blogging life again.
i have missed your dear blogs.
and boy, have i missed jotting down my silly thoughts.

connections are lovely.
connections with family, friends, places, and
of course, the internet.

happy blogging.


i had no idea that is was possible for someone out there in the world, to be more obsessed with Michael Jackson than i am. But, we may have a tie for first place. loverboy and i happened to need a wireless router. we took the long trek out to the apple store and to our surprised walked into something.... great. it was fate; i know it was. i blinked a few times, realizing what i saw was real. take a look for yourself.

not the best film, because i was trying to be sneaky from a distance. wish i could have filmed the really good stuff. but, you get an idea.

yes- there was actually a guy dressed up as MJ standing in front of the computer screen, blasting "billy jean", mimicking MJ's every move. hope you noticed the black sequin jacket and white glove. he was dead serious. not putting on a show for anyone. just his usual routine, i suppose.
this was a classic act. loverboy and i were in awe. i know i'm a little rebel for filming him- but i had to. i wasn't the only one doing so... he had quite the fan club.

long story short...
only in mo-town do you walk into an apple store to find this kind of a surprise.
unreal. completely made my day.
as well as the delicious homemade cookies we enjoyed, the perfectly sunny day, the scrumptious dinner we polished off, and the goodnight cuddles.

MJ... your spirit lives on. you are a legend. and i'm your (2nd) biggest fan.

vote here:

i'm taking a vote.
obviously, my life took on a major lifestyle change.
one, that brought another heart into the picture.
so, i'm at a standstill....

do i change the blog and make it "our's"
do i get a new one all together
do i keep the one i already have?

let me here what you think.
is anyone even reading my blog?
does it really matter?
