Good news is my favorite kind.



I got some very very good news today. My grandpa is a pilot. Him and my step grandma love to travel. They're retired, it's part of the territory. So they have a few timeshares to save on hotels. It's pretty much impossible to use all of the time in a year. Well, they have some Hawaii. You guessed it. My grandparents are letting us use their timeshare in Hawaii for a week for our honeymoon!! We couldn't be more excited! All we have to do is pay the taxes and booking fee! Since my plane ticket is free, we only have to pay for Clint's, and hopefully we'll get that discounted too! We're going to have a week in Hawaii for the price of a weekend in California! AH! I love it! Looking at these pictures made me even more excited! I wish tomorrow was May 22nd!

Have you been to Hawaii? Any tips for us on where to go and what to see?

That is amazing! Obviously you have to hit up the beaches. Also eat as much food as you can get your hands on. There are 2 things that I did while I was there that stick out in my memories 1) Going zip lining and 2) The helicopter tour of the islands. The helicopter was a bit expensive, but it was so worth it. Imagine the opening scene from Jurassic Park, but you are in the helicopter seeing it. You will have an amazing time no matter what you do though!

ok girl,
you need to go to the temple, duh! They just re-did it and it is GORGEOUS!

you also need to go to the Polynesian Cultural Center, go to PEARL HARBOR (loved it, but I'm a history nerd)
The Dole Plantation (you may or may not get addicted to Dole whip)

I am so jealous! Make sure you also go to Haunoma (spelling) bay and snorkel! You guys will LOVEEEEEE it

oh hawaii is the best!! cody and i went a few years ago...lesson learned, dont get tricked into the submarine trip, total waste, you dont even see anything cool. def just have lots of beach time, the PCC is a good time, we did the helicopter tour which was great also, do lots and lots of snorkeling, and make sure you eat lots of macadamia nut ice cream from haagen dazs. rent bikes and ride around, and make sure you are always watching for whales! and if you are running late somewhere dont stop at subway because it will take a hawaiian 20 hours to make a sandwich....even when you are the only customers in the shop.

Where in Hawaii are you going to? I live on Maui and have also gone to Oahu a lot, so if you want the inside scoop on all the best places to go, just let me know.
