Small Business Saturday!

November 24, 2012 Leave a comment

Today is Small Business Saturday! Basically it’s a day to promote small, local businesses by shopping at them. American Express has a promotion that they do for Small Business Saturday. They give you a $25 statement credit if you spend $25 or more at a small business.

The BF and I try to spend just about $25 so that whatever we purchase is basically free. And all we have to do is use our card at the small business merchant. American Express does the rest and the statement credit comes in a few days! SO FAST!

This year, I got $26 dollars worth of cookies from Cookie Corner!

The BF let me use his Amercan Express card to buy a Hello Kitty pillow from Sanrio which costed $25.13!

So after the $25 statement credits that we’ll get (each, for each of our American Express cards), those will basically be free! πŸ˜€ I love that.

Halloween 2012!

October 31, 2012 Leave a comment

For Halloween this year, we decided to give out candy and we also used our little canon photo printer, and our digital camera, and we printed on-site pictures for people that wanted to have a keepsake for Halloween! The BF bought me extra photo paper and printer ink for the little canon printer, so we had extra to print out photos! We also gave out Halloween stickers, and these printable coupons that the American Dental Association put out that was for a free download of Plants Vs. Zombies for your PC or Mac computer. Apparently, it costs $19.99 usually, but was free with the code on the coupon!! Those were both the BF’s ideas. He’s so creative! Something different than the usual candy.

This was our setup. πŸ™‚ And the BF also set up his portable speaker, and streamed Halloween themed music from it! It sounded so scary! Everything was so cool.

Mika was also in the Halloween spirit with her orange Halloween bandana. (She had a groomer’s appointment today, so they put on an orange bandana for her.) LOL

Tsunami Warning For Hawaii

October 27, 2012 Leave a comment


There was a tsunami warning issued for Hawaii tonight. It was due to an Earthquake in Canada.

The projection is headed straight for Hawaii.


So far, we’re safe but the waves could be up to 2 meters or 6-7 feet!!! 😦 Be safe all my Hawaii people. I’ve already evacuated to higher ground. If you’re in an inundation zone, you REALLY should have evacuated already.

I must say, I have watched more of the Olympics this year than any other year. Here’s the medal count as of today, 8-5-2012… So exciting!

I found this by Googling “medal count olympics 2012” by the way. LOL

Good luck to you all! Wherever you may be from!

First Hawaiian International Auto Show 2012

April 2, 2012 Leave a comment

Every year my boyfriend and I go to the First Hawaiian International Auto Show (sponsored by First Hawaiian Bank). We’ve gone for the past 4 years already, I think (if not more). They always bring in all the newest and upcoming models of cars that are coming oit from all the different car makers. It’s nice to see what their newest products are. Also… We love to go because they give out, or you can win all kinds of free stuff. This year, they gave out reusable tote bags, and we won reusable cups, a bucket and sponge for car washing, a Geico cinch-pack, and all kinds of other stuff! It was pretty awesome.


I have to fill you in on a car that I’ve been pretty interested in recently too. When I can upload my camera pictures that I took at the auto show, I’ll post. πŸ˜€

Hello 2012

January 1, 2012 Leave a comment

Just a few updates. Because I am going to start the first day of 2012 by writing a blog to kick things off on the right foot. πŸ™‚
I LOVE Christmas. I think that it was a very big success. We managed to get everyone something nice and thoughtful.

My cute, smart cat, Sasha, even got in on the action.

I also started my 5-year, one-line-a-day journal book. It has a short daily entry for each day for the next 5 years. You write a line a day and can look back on everything at the end of 5 years to see what you were doing throughout the years on each day. Pretty neat! It was a gift I received from Vanessa. πŸ™‚

Ahhhh anyway, so I spent the day with my sisters and boyfriend cleaning the house and taking down the Christmas tree and decorations. I also made a sale on Craigslist, as well as spent some time tanning on my roof. It was a very relaxing day, but a perfect way to spend the start of the new year! All positives! πŸ™‚
