Ok so i realized I posted the wrong link to my iweb site which is no corrected, and in case you don’t want to scroll down, it’s right here: http://web.me.com/ihi.n.keola/biranobuggas/e_komo_mai.html

Ok so I decided to do a trial period of mobileme which has some cool features I forgot about. For example, it keeps my calendars, contacts and internet bookmarks in sync with my ipod touch, my mac, and the internet…so that’s another benefit of the subscription that let’s me create this cool website. So I was fooling around and decided to build a website and put my blog there. Check it out here: http://web.me.com/ihi.n.keola/biranobuggas/e_komo_mai.html . I have a 2 month trial, so we’ll see in the end if I decide to keep it or not.

drab to fab

If you’re a poor apartment dweller like me, you live in a bland white box with blinds. Ugghhh! 🙁 I watch too much HGTV to allow myself to live in such a dull place. Of course, we’re also on a budget, so there’s not a whole lot we can do to spruce the place up. The place we’re living now is SOOO MUCH NICER than an any other apartment we’ve had in Hawai’i.

Minus the happy football player (I got this jersey for Keola on our first christmas together after we got married) this is pretty much what our first apartment looked like. It was a small matchbox of a place and boy was it GHETTO! Seriously…nowhere to go but up


Well, we moved up in the world – up to Provo, Utah to be exact, where we enjoyed such simple things like carpet, a stove and oven, a dishwasher (never had that EVER in my whole life. We didn’t even know how to use it) and a living room. We thought we were living the high life in our one-bedroom apartment. Here’s what it looked like on a messy day…(unfortunately that’s the only picture I have of it)



Then we moved to what we affectionately call “The Cave” in Hilo. It was partially underground…sort of. Anyway, it was always dark in there because light just couldn’t get in. So we were freezing our butts off for the 7 months that we lived there. Apparently I have pics of everything BUT the living room. Hmmm…




and put it on the back of my bookshelf so it looked like this:

Then I did the whole thing to my other shelf, but you get the idea. Now every time I look at my shelves, I’m just happy. Sure Keola didn’t catch my vision, but even he admits it looks better now.
