What A Week!

We did a lot this week: 
Monday I had an interview at the Honolulu Club for a receptionist position. John was kind and drove us to town. We decided to rent a rental car for Monday and Tuesday since Zach also had an interview on Tuesday on the opposite side of the island. It was kind of funny when John dropped me off for my interview he said he use to be a member of the Honolulu Club and that it was a hoity-toity kind of place and that he could see me working there. 
I think the interview went well and I actually got a call back for a third interview on Monday (I had a phone interview before she asked me to come in and interview in person), now I just have to pass the typing test. Anyway after my interview Zach picked me up in our rental and we decided to hit the island. We’ve been trying our best to watch our spending, since we aren’t making any money at the moment but we thought it was okay to splurge this week since Thursday was Zach’s birthday so the rental car and tour of the island was his birthday celebration. He wanted Wahoos fish tacos so that was our first stop then we drove up towards the North Shore and of course we had to stop for Matsumoto’s Shaved Ice in Haleiwa, they were so good. Then we ventured on to Waimea Bay where we sat and watched the waves and continued to eat our snow cones. Then we stopped at Pipeline to watch the sunset. After that we continued on our drive along the coast and even stopped at Turtle Bay Resort to look around, it was fun to see where they filmed the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall. We love the North Shore, I wish we could live there…maybe one day.

On Tuesday we got up and did some work around the farm then drove to Kapolei for Zach’s interview at Costco. We drove around the area and checked it out but we weren’t too impressed, it was more desert-y and not much around the area. After that we returned the rental car and caught a bus back to Waimanalo. We are really starting to understand the lay out of the island. 

On Thursday for Zach’s birthday we walked to McDonald’s to get ice cream cones and then headed to the beach. What’s better than spending your birthday at the beach?
 Happy 27!

 Last night John took us on a full moon hike up Makapu’u point, which is the easternmost point on the island. The night and view was beautiful. 

 We are truly blessed to be able to have these experiences.
