Kim's Birthday

So, I believe I will take the time tonight to introduce to you some of my Hawaiian "ohana" --which means "family".

Today is my friend Kim's birthday--So Happy 24th Kimsy! Kim is from Randolph Co. too, but we just met a little over a year ago here in HI. She is moving in with me at the end of the month--which is going to be great fun, and kind of cool too because our husbands are rooming together in Iraq.



So, we went to a new restaurant, E&0 Trading Co. and it was so great--a South East Asian cuisine if you will (Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, etc.) ...the smells took me right back to Sri Lanka and the food was great (and in my personal opinion, much better than Sri Lanka, for most of the time i ended up with only french fries and cheese sandwiches!) Notice the awesome bamboo shoots our coconut rice came in!



Our friends Carrie--also a Carolina girl, southern carolina that is but we forgive her for that-- (that's her above with the rice) and Renee from California came too. We had a good time talking and laughing as always, but then we noticed the time--a surprising 9:45! And just like 4 Cinderellas as the clock struck 12, we ran straight out the door and headed for home because it is definitely Monday night we all have work and HI traffic to deal with in the morning...oh the life of a grown-up!

*note: heard through the grapevine (or more specifically, Mike's roomie's wife (Kim, yes you got it!) that Mike is in the bed sick with a very sore throat, no voice,etc ...poor Mikey, everyone please send him some love to make him feel better!
