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.

you're a babe in your suit.
and i'll forever crave coconut syrup.
