Hello Sweet Cheer: 5 Weirdest Happenings in Hawaii


5 Weirdest Happenings in Hawaii

Happppppy weekend, friends!

     We barely survived our first week home after the honeymoon.  It was a little crazy to say the least, but now it's Saturday, we're in our pajamas, and we are seriously soaking in the relaxation.

     Just to give you a quick summary, I started getting sick on Friday, the day before we left Hawaii.  We got home on Sunday, took a quick nap after almost 24 hours of travel, attempted to get our house together, and headed off to church for the 5:00pm service.  Monday was miserable.  After missing a week and a half of work for the wedding and honeymoon I couldn't even go back because I was running fever, coughing and couldn't speak.  So, Monday was a doctor visit, resting and my precious husband helped so much to get the house back in order since I was feeling terrible.  He did four loads of laundry, what a trooper!  Tuesday we tried a GC, Wednesday we had a meeting at church and tried another GC, Thursday we got to relax, and last night we had a church event to go to, and then we hung out with our new Guatemalan friend.  This week was a whirlwind!

On to the funny stuff...

FIVE | Garbage dog

     On our first night in Hawaii, we were walking to dinner when we passed a few guys standing by a trash can.  One of the guys yelled out, "Anyone wanna adopt a garrrrrbage dog?!" as we noticed a grown man sitting inside. the. trash. can.  LOL  It was so funny and we couldn't stop quoting that moment throughout the rest of the week.

FOUR | Siblings

     One day we were shopping around, looking for souvenirs.  We stopped in one shop that had great prices and a really nice lady working.  We talked to her for a good while as we continued to pick out the things we wanted to purchase.  We told her that we were on our honeymoon and she said, "Ah how exciting! Congratulations!"  As we were leaving the shop after paying she said, "Ya know, you guys look like brother and sister!" To which we replied... "Oh....haha.....cool" .........................

THREE | Bird

     We saw a bird inside the Honolulu Airport...

TWO | Oldies

     I cannot tell you how many grandpas we saw with their wives/girlfriends who were at least 30 years younger than them.  Totally weird.  It was so bad that it made you think it could just be a very unhealthy father/daughter relationship rather than a romantic one...that's tough!  haha

ONE | Interruption

     This one just takes the cake.  My husband and I were in our room, enjoying our honeymoon, when we heard very loud knocking at the door...yikes!  So Ryan answered the door in a towel, and it was three Hawaiian guys who realized they had come at a bad time..haha.  They were clearly embarrassed and said they would come back later.  Needless to say, that was the last time we forgot to put the Do Not Disturb card out.... ;)

Overall, we had an amazing trip!  It was so much fun and we really loved just getting to spend the week together with no specific responsibilities.  Here are some pictures to prove it!
