Open House Maui

Ok so I'm not home to post pictures of my house.* So...... will you settle for pictures of our resort in Maui?

Lets start with our huge room that includes a bedroom, full kitchen, laundry, living/dinning room and giant bathroom. Our room was our anniversary gift from my in-laws. We feel like royalty.


The jet tub has this pass though that allows me to watch TV while I bath. Fantastic.
The view from our balcony. The ocean is just beyond the trees. The courtyard with koi ponds, pools, waterfalls, cabanas, and live music.






In case I don't get a chance to post for awhile, (you know because of all the merriness that I'm having) I wanted to also post some of my highlights from our first day-a-half. I got a henna tattoo. I know, totally wild of me! I haven't been this rebellious since college when I broke all the rules and used an electric blanket in my dorm room. Shocking information, I know.
Our first night we went to eat at this outdoor restaurant with thatched umbrellas and sand under our toes.


This morning Matt and I went to a really cool Church service. It was so awesome to worship in God's creation. We sat under banyan trees with the ocean as our backdrop. Not hard to praise Him while in Hawaii watching a school of sea turtles play in the surf. (Do sea turtles travel in schools, swarms, flocks or gaggles? Someone google that for me, will ya?) Anyway it was really cool. I even recorded a bit for you.








*For anyone reading my blog that is tempted bust into my house and steal my generation one TiVo or my elaborate New Kids On The Block collection......It's only fair to warn you that the house has been boobie trapped with trip wires connected to bouncing betty's and claymores in addition to a brood of deadly snakes that we let wander the house. (broods, maybe turtles travle in broods....) We also hired a full time sniper ready to protect said NKOTB memorabilia, (thank you officer Pinkerton).

All I can say is........You lucky dog!!!!

What beautiful pictures, and you both look fantastic....like two honeymooners! And that church service looked awesome, it reminded me a lot of YWAM in Kona. I hope you have a perfectly wonderful time together, and enjoy every moment (as long as Matt can pull you away from your jetted tub and the E channel!)

Blessings to you both!

We missed you at Daphne's party but when I realized where you were, I didn't feel bad for you that you were missing it. I'm so jealous! Hope you're having a great time and it is so great to see pictures of the place!

I'm so impressed that you posted while on your vacation. You are both already looking very tan! Enjoy the beautifulness (is that a word?) of Hawaii!!

I'm guessing that the Officer Pinkerton guarding your house was set up by the wonderful Matt, considering that the said officer Pinkerton had no idea he was guarding. I'll send him over post haste!!

There are so many comments that I want to make about this post, but they're all overridden by the fact that I would like you to ask that church if they need a new senior pastor....just let me know, I might know one! : )

I'm SOOOO glad you guys are there right now! I can't tell you how happy that makes me! Enjoy, and I'll see you on the other side!

Becca & Matt~ you two look like you're having so much fun ... sun, sand, tatoos ... who could ask for more?
The place you're staying looks GREAT! You need to remember the tub set up when you're planning your new house. Have Matt put a TV in the bathroom for you :)
We look forward to hearing all about it when you get home! Have fun!
