Pinterest Monday

After an extremely boring and unproductive day at the office, an exhausting afternoon of chicken wrangling and the trailer trashiest trip to Kualapuu Market ever.... I made a dinner of epic Pinterest proportions. Baked tacos, and that cream cheese apple crescent roll thing. 

Baked taco review, aaah mazing! Except for soph who only liked the tomatoes and kept yelling for more sour cream. delish and very filling. This is all that was left.
If I was better at blogging I would have captured all the steps... Oh well.

And my leftovers for work tomorrow.

And now to the apple thing. The link was missing on Pinterest, so I just looked at the pic and assumed I could figure it out. It took forever to bake, like 25 min at 350. Actually preheated too! 
We're all pretty stuffed from the tacos, so tune in tomorrow for the reviews. 

Here's how I made it though:
1 can crescent rolls (1/2 on the bottom, 1/2 on the top.
Next a box of old previously frozen crumbly cream cheese
After that a can of apple pie filling
Top with other 1/2 of cr.
A couple of smears of smart balance and a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar.
Bake at 350 for awhile until golden.

Fall in kalae

It may be 80 degrees, hot, and sunny, but we're pretending it really autumn here at our house.
Sophia and I did mommy and me Halloween nail art.

Around the (old) office

Took a much needed sanity break to go check my seeds and fix some stuff up in the old office. It was a beautiful day, an it reminded me of how much I really miss "the good ol days"
It was only 94f when I first opened the door...

Everything is a billion (at least 15) years old.

Only 4000 miles away. Represent!

It was a really beautiful day outside.

I miss this view!

With the fans on and door open the temp went down to 88, and I was freezing!

And then I rushed home so Daniel could go to work, we hung out with friends that will all be abandoning us soon, and then came home. I'm sooo tired and pregnant, I could barely keep my eyes open, but I'm also horribly thirsty... All. Of. The. Time!!!!!! And this little(giant!!!!) effer was ON MY WATER CUP!!! Needless to say, I smashed him, but still, ewwweeeeeeeewwwwwewwewwww!!! 

I love and hate living here so much.

Sitting in a meeting, unable to multitask because the Internet isn't working and I don't have phone signal. Sometimes the limitations of living here can be soooo frustrating. If I didn't have anything to do all day, this would be great. I'd be forced to read a book, draw a picture, work in the garden, cook something, have family time, etc. un freakin fortunately, I'm at work and I have shit to do. I have work, I have homework, I have a midterm to study for, etc. not to mention, it's 2013 so I neeeeed to be constantly entertained and engaged, maybe that's the real problem. 

Oh we'll, back to my desk and all is better in the world. The crews did a fantastic job on my harvest, serious overachievers today. Dang, it feels good to be the favorite :)

Tuesday was an especially long 11 hour day at the office. At least when I got home the weather was beautiful and Sophia and I took some time to explore the jungle part of our front yard:

I hate school

For almost as long as I can remember, I have HATED school!!! I hate every single thing about it. The sad thing is I really like learning. An the even sadder thing is for some unknown reason, I hate quitting :(

Our beautiful backyard

Our backyard was looking especially pretty today. Even with the addition of some extra wild chickens.

Where is her sweater

That's right. An egret sitting on a spotted horse, in a field of grass that's almost taller than the horse. 


We saw a rainbow today while we were in line at Molokai burger. I tried to get a pic, but doesn't look like it showed up. Even so, it doesn't matter how many rainbows we see here, they're all as special as the first... And second... And third... And 300th... Etc.
