Love & Such

Okay brothers and sisters- bloggers of the world- I am SO pleased to introduce you to the best blog out there... my sister's! I mean... I guess it's okay... :) If you love reading about spontaneous adventures with a human and their sidekick bunny then her blog is for you! Love & Such is my lil seester's blog and it is seriously the best thing ever! She is the little bunny that got me onto blogging! I love her and her blogs (especially the awesome ones about me) more than anything! 

So my sissy nominated me for the Lobster Award!! (Liebster Award) I'm pretty stoked to fill out this questionnaire thing- It's always fun for everyone to learn a little more about me.. especially if you are new to my bloggy blog! I'll post 11 things about myself and then answer the questions my tinky has given me.Thanks for the nomination sis... I won't let you down...


1. I live in Lai'e Hawai'i. If you don't know that already then... Welcome to Little Sea Big Fish. 

2. I have SUCH a love for animals and it is kind of a problem... I can't walk through campus without the stray dogs following me around because they KNOW that i'm the chick that buys dog food at the grocery store for them and gets beef jerky out of the vending machine to feed them if i'm in a hurry. SO WHAT! I love the little critters. I have even tried to leave little snacks for the geckos in my dorm room but they are haters so... i'll keep workin' on that one! 

3. I LOVE school and I love learning. I spend 95% of my life in the library 1. because if I am in the sun too long i'll burn and 2. there are some super hot guys in here. I am SUCH a nerd and get all of my homework for like the next month done but HEY don't come crying to me when you are all stressed out about all of the homework you have to do! I'll be here sitting on pinterest laughing while you frantically finish your assignments! Suckas.

4. I am a fishy. I am obsessed with the ocean and i'm so happy I live two seconds away from it! Even though I have been living in Hawai'i for a little bit, there isn't ONE time where I don't walk or drive by the ocean and just stare at it in amazement. It is just so insanely powerful and holds so many mysteries! I looove it.

5. My best friend is my sister. Hands down. Everyone says "ohhh yeah I love my siblings! BFFS!! yay!" when lezbehonest- they don't! I was so blessed to get a sister who is just as insane as I am! We understand each other so well and I am so happy our sisterly umbilical cord bond had grown even more these last few years! Love you buns!

6. I won the Red Head Contest at the State Fair. This doesn't even need an explanation. It was legit.. 

7. At my high school graduation, a couple other students and I were asked to speak. Everyone spoke so wonderfully about working hard and growing up to become a strong and confident individual. And then I stood up and spoke about how I aspire to own a ghetto taco stand someday. HATERS GONNA HATE! 

8. Some people are afraid of ghosts, some are afraid of murders, but COME ON GUYS there is nothing more terrifying than ALIENS! Those little creatures have been my biggest fear since I was in the womb. I'm sorry but DON'T tell me this just doesn't make you want to crap your pants- 

9. I love anything dealing with love. Okay let me explain myself- I love reading cute engagement stories, hearing about peoples weddings, cute love notes, darling surprises for their significant other. I think its all so cute! But at the end of the day..... this is how I really am...

10. I ate dog testicles when I was in China. Did I know I was eating dog testicles......? Do I even have to ANSWER THAT?

11. Even though I seem like a girly kind of girl, I LOVE doing anything crazy outdoors! A lot of people have told me I act more like a boy than a girl sometimes. I should take that offensively.. but I just respond with "You are just upset I have better 'That's What She Said' jokes." ALL of my best friends have been guys so I understand them better than any other species on earth, but boy I get friend zoned like no other! Whatevs! I love all the dudes in my life! Anyways.. back to the subject- I LOVE running, hiking, hunting, and going on any kind of adventure! I'm down to try anything crazy and love having a killer time! (Why do I feel like I am filling out a thing for a dating website? in that case I love ice cream and walks on the beach boys!)

Kell asked me these questions-

1. What has been the greatest adventure for you in the last year?

Definitely moving to Hawai'i and enjoying the sick adventures I have had here! I never thought i'd be at my dream school living right next to the beach! Love it!

2. If you could live anywhere in the US Where would you move?
I would love to live in California sometime in my life! I love Hawai'i but there is no way I am going to be paying $8.00 for a gallon of milk the rest of my life here! SO expensive to live over here it is such a joke!

3. Dill pickles or sweet?
Dill for sure! Oh dill pickles bring back great memories of making grilled cheese and eating big ol' pickles with my sis! 

4. If someone handed you $1,000.00 what would you do with it?
My first purchase would most definitely be the biggest carrot ever for Winston! If you don't know who Winston is... Follow kell's blog and you will find out! After that I would take care of the family. I'd get Kell and Spencer a home, pay off the parentals bills, and once all of that is taken care of, I'm headed to the Land Rover dealership to get myself a black Range Rover to drive to Lulu Lemon in to spend the remainder of my money. Oh then i'd buy a labradoodle. Those things are gnarly. Sounds like a good plan! 

 5. What is your dream job?
Well.... It's a little all over the place but... I would love to be a Marine Biologist (what i'm studying in school right now) and/or work at Sea World so that I could play with sea critters all day. But on the other hand, I would love to do something with business. I have always dreamed of having my own little grill or something right on the beach. But I love being in charge.. so being a CEO of a huge company and arriving to work every day in my Rolls Royce wearing my Chanel business attire and the 6 inch red heels I could never walk in. And having everyone be terrified of me..... yeah........ that would rock. But at the end of the day, all I want in life is to be the manager for One Direction. Lets get real. 

6. What is your favorite thing to spend money on?
Clothes. Gum. Ice cream. Lulu Lemon. Random Etsy purchases. That's all I spend my money on....

7. What is your favorite season and why?
I love summer (duh) because of WARM NIGHTS! You would say "well you have that all the time in Hawai'i!" well no. You don't. Its windy and freaking cold at night. I miss Utah's killer dry summer heat and watching the sunset on the boulevard at night and still enjoying the heat even after the sun had set! I also love Autumn because it is SUCH a pretty time! Plus that means HALLOWEEN!!! <3

8. What is one accessory you couldn't live without?
The only accessories I wear are the ones I wear EVERY day. I am completely naked without my Michael Kors watch on my wrist. It's such a beast and weighs like 45 pounds but I even sleep with it most of the time. It's a problem. I wear 2 rings on each hand and those never come off no matter what! I forget they are even there i'm so used to them. I also wear my fishy necklace that my best friend Cole Davis gave me over a year ago every day. The only time that sucker ever comes off is when I have a photo shoot! My last accessory I wear every day is my lucky Saint Christopher's necklace!

9. Where were you born?
I was born in Bountiful, Utah into a family that looks completely different than me. My siblings all tell me i'm adopted so I don't really know what to believe anymore......... i'm guessing my real birth place is probably Compton or Inglewood. 

10. Do you have any pets?
I have Peanut the yorkie, Jaxsey the Chiweenie, Weezy and Snowflake the Parakeets, and Winny. He is sisters bunny, but i'm his auntie so yeah... he's considered one of my pets. They all are so rad! 
peanut loves me...

11. Why do you blog?
I love blogging because I love keeping family and friends updated on all of my adventures. But I mostly love it because I love making me people laugh! I hope you all chuckled at least once in this blog. If that picture of people with the sock on her head doesn't crack you up then I really don't know what to tell you.

-Stranded in Kahuku-

 -Stranded in Kahuku-

I have been so stoked to tell you all about my adventurous date night with Mr. Tanner Denning. For all of you wondering who he is.... here's his lil background story- Tanner.. it's your time to shine!

I met Tanner my first week here at school. He is from San Clemente, California but had been living in Utah the last few years and working as a lift operator at Park City Mountain Resort. He was going to be an Accounting Major, but then he realized how extremely horrid that would be so he switched his major to Marine Biology- The same as me! I was stoked to see we had a lot of classes together because that means I  had someone to cheat off of! :D :D (jk mom...) He has become one of my really good friends over here and is one of the sickest dudes I have ever met! He has been surfing since he was...6 I believe... so yeah he totally sucks at it. He also snowboards, longboards, cooks, and is extremely smart and a super good example to me! Oh and he loves Winston. So there's the little background on him.

(Tanner is the dude basically on top of the other dude.. This was him surfing at Pipeline a few weeks ago.. he is freaking insane....)

ANYWAYS................. So Tanner and I have become slaves of the library. We spend about 5 hours at the library every day studying for our freaking hard classes and so that picture that is at the top of this blog was taken on Friday after we had been in the library for several hours and working on biology problems that would take about 45 minutes a question.. after we were done, our brains were fried. He asked me if he could take me to The Surfer Bar (totally his kind of joint) at Turtle Bay. Finally a night out away from studying!

Tanner and I met up on campus later and walked to the bus stop to head up to Turtle Bay. MAN do I miss having my little snoball to scurry around in :( BUSES ARE SO FREAKING SCARY!!!!! We got to Turtle Bay after a sketchy bus ride and the restaurant was AMAZINNNGGGG!!!!!!!!! We had such a delicious meal and I know Tanner loved the whole surfer atmosphere at the restaurant and was probably watching the waves outside the whole time! :) For dessert... we had the most incredible creation that literally made me emotional it was so good. It was a chocolate haupia checkerboard cake.. So it was ice cream and cake checkers! INCREDIBLE!

uh tanner can you not look like elvis??

After dinner, we went down near the beach where they had a bunch of torches going and we sat there talking. We started talking about super scary stories and freaky experiences we had both had and then all of a sudden the torches all went out. We were pretty freaked out! We left after that and headed back down to the bus stop. We were sitting there and I was like "uhhhh whens the bus gonna be here....." We checked the time and the next bus- 6:45 the next morning. 

We were 6+ miles away from home!! We both just started laughing and Tanner looks at me and says "Well.... looks like we are going to go on a little adventure!" So we started our little quest- Once we got out of the beauty and lights of Turtle Bay, we found ourselves walking along the side of the road in the complete dark with the stars barely lighting the road for us. We were FREAKED OUT!! Our previous spooky conversation wasn't helping either! Tanner started talking to me about what we would do if someone jumped us and we had like a game plan- it was so scary actually talking about what we would have to do if we got freaking attacked by someone... wasn't comforting at ALL especially since one of the sketchiest towns was only a few miles ahead of us. We had to stop along the side of the road and I had to put all of my cash and credit cards inside of my shirt just in case... so freaky. Once we saw some cars passing by we started to hitch hike.. and ITS NOT THAT SKETCHY GUYS! Hitch hiking is the best way to get across the island! We hitch hiked FOREVER and cars just kept on zooming by. SO frustrating! Finally a HUGE truck zooms by us and then stops and reverses back to us. This totally crazy old dude gets out and was like "WHERE YAAA HEEEADDEDD?!" And we hop into the bed of his truck. It was full of random stuff like... IDK... DEAD FISH and freaking coconuts! The dude was freaking nuts! He only drove like half a mile and then dumped us in the middle of Kahuku- the sketchiest place. So we just walked looking down at the ground avoiding eye contact with anyone and we were SCARED. We finally got out of the sketchy area and found a well lighted trail to walk down. We FINALLY felt like we weren't going to get attacked by zombies and/or aliens. Until we saw the alien cows along the path....

                                   try to tell me that isn't the scariest thing you've ever seen in your life.

LONG STORY SHORT- Tanner and I survived the sketchiest abandonment ever. The lesson we learned- PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SUCKS GUYS!!!!!!!  I'm glad I had that huge kid with me though in case anyone wanted to start anything... but Tanner should be lucky he had ME there because we all know no one would've messed with us when they saw how tough I am.... duhh! ;) It was scary at the time, but now I laugh about it all the time! I love the craziest experiences like this that I have here... it makes me love the island life so much more! Gotta love having crazy stories I can tell the kids one day about how mama was a gangsta and hitch hiked her way through Hawai'i :)
