some rare footage...

About three years ago I came home from spending the summer in Oahu, Hawaii. I attended school out there at Brigham Young University Hawaii. In commemoration of the experience and beautiful memory that it is and was, I have decided to post some rare footage of me and a dear friend hula dancing. Yes, I understand that you have now found your way to the edge of your chair, bench, couch, whatever... in complete anticipation of the following videos...but please, before your hopes are set too high, please keep in mind that I had learned this dance about four minutes previous to the actual filming and oh my hannah, I am talented. Enjoy.

This first one is of me, attempting to hula dance for my very first time.

And and then with some practice....

Katie was the one with the real talent.

She was laughing in every take, while I was trying to take it seriously.

We were really good.
Here are a few photos as well...

Chanel and I at the Hukilau Cafe. Num num, blueberry pancakes.

The Laie Hawaii Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Katie and I at Sunset Beach on North Shore Oahu, a.k.a my very favorite beach.

Katie, hyped up on Guava Nectar Juice.
She is now married and has a beautiful little girl...and I'm Auntie Kristen.
It makes me feel kinda old, even though I'm really not.

And finally, a little trip to the Ala Moana shopping center in Honolulu :).

Can't believe it's been three years.

With love,

kristen a.
