So, I have only starting watching Jamie’s World this year, but she is definitely a favorite to watch. She’s funny, absolutely gorgeous and very talented. When I’m up for a good relatable (and sometimes not so relatable) laugh, Jamie comes first to mind!!
Keep up the laughs love,
<3 a Hawaii Girl :)
I Know MAC is pricey, but I loved getting something from there and feeling all girlie ^.^* thanks baby!!
I know that it might be a little to early to be looking into planning our wedding, but I am too excited. We don’t have a date or location. But I have my colors, how I wanna wear my hair, somewhat of a theme, some places we are looking into would most likely be at a hotel (so we can stay for the weekend) and some decoration ideas in mind. I am so excited to get started at looking up ideas and stuff. I know that we won’t be having our ceremony any time soon, but I believe that it is good to plan ahead, so by the time we do have enough money, I will be able to be prepared and have the wedding of my dreams!!! AHHHHH!!!! :D This is driving me crazy, but I wish that it could just happen already. He is my best friend and the love of my life from now until forever more!!
Peace and Love,
Stacy & Cydney inspired me to write this. ^_^
My love and I met back in 2009, when I was only 15 and he was 17.
It was a wednesday, sometime in January, and my church was bringing in the new pews and getting rid of the old lawn chairs we used to have. My hunie and his friends were hanging out and saw that the men of our church needed some help and that’s just what they did. After they had helped the men take all of the pews in and set them up, my hunie and all of his friends were invited to our Midweek service that very night. Service started at 7:00pm. Only my hunie returned to our church that night.
He sat in the corner of the church, on the last few lawn chairs we had left, all by himself in front of the studio sound room in our church. (mind you, our church is very small, the space roughly accommodates 100 people in the sanctuary) He didn’t say much, but by the time I got to the church, he was already their. I looked at him and I said to myself “Who is that?” and sat with my family on a pew directly across from him. I sat there and I tried not to look at him, but I could tell that he had been staring at me since I first walked into the sanctuary.
All throughout service, I noticed that he had been staring at me every chance that he could. But I tried not to make it obvious that I knew. At first, I thought it was a bit creepy, but I soon grew to like it. Later on, he told me that he used to see me around school a lot. He was always at the gate next to our school’s cafeteria with all of his friends, and he used to see my friends and I walking down campus all the time and wondered about me and who I was. He said that he first started noticing me in December of 2008 before the winter break. Before this day, I never really noticed him in school.
After that day, he came to every church service and function that we had just to see me. He came on sunday mornings, sunday nights, wednesday nights, and friday night’s children and youth service. He already knew a few of the members there and one of our friends, Nolan. He and Nolan always hung out at church. On the last sunday of January, our church had a function at the state capitol building in town. It was for the Bill 444 (which at the time was a rally to not promote the bill allowing pastor’s to ordain same-sex marriages in the state of Hawaii. Before I continue…I DO BELIEVE IN LOVE AND HAPPINESS NO MATTER WHAT SEX YOU ARE AND NO MATTER WHAT SEX YOU WANT TO MARRY. I BELIEVE IN GOD, BUT I ALSO BELIEVE IN EQUALITY, LOVE AND HOPE.
The rally was long and I wasn’t really paying too much attention unless the music interested me. But I was more interested in knowing where my hunie was and what he was doing. Which was not much. He just walked around a lot and hung out and talked stories with Nolan. My church doesn’t believe in “dating” at this young age and neither did my mom. So, you might know how that goes and we liked each other from a distance. But the whole time he was with Nolan, he was trying to think of ways to ask me out.
On February 14, 2009, my mom got remarried and asked me to sing at her wedding. I did okay, but I could have done better if I wasn’t so nervous. But my hunie was playing the guitar and his cousin John, was playing piano. I was petrified that day and didn’t sing my best. I wish I did though. But my hunie told me that that day I looked beautiful and he couldn’t believe how close I was standing to him. ^_^
Sometime in February, it was a friday night and we were at a youth service for our church. Service started at 7 and ended at 8. So, after everyone started eating, the teens wanted to hang out and sing in the church. So, we left on the microphones and started singing with each other. Then, one of my friends, Dri and Honey Girl, saw my hunie playing the guitar and asked him to sit with us and sing a song. He was wearing an aloha shirt, jean pants and slippers. So, he sat right next to me and started playing the guitar and singing the song “Everything in my Life”. I held the mic up for him and the whole time he was singing, he was staring at me. *blush* Everyone already knew what was going on and they were all teasing me afterwards. I brushed it off and told them that he didn’t like me like that. (Secretly, I liked it and he did like me—a lot)
The week before my birthday, I think it was a wednesday, my friend, Dri, really wanted to go out with his friend Dillan (who came to our church for a while). So, I asked him if he could ask Dillan and then let me know. So, I used his phone to call my phone so I could have his number. (Slick I know lmao jk) I never tried to call or text him until after my birthday. My Birthday was on March 15 and I just turned 16 and I believe that it was on a sunday. During this week, on wednesday I was walking home from school and I started to text him because I was feeling a little down. He was surprised to get a text from me and kind of excited.
So, we were texting all afternoon, into the late night and then we ended up talking on the phone from around midnight until about 4 or 5 in the morning. We had so much to talk about and when we started talking “bubbles”, then we knew it was time to go to bed. So, we said our goodbyes and went to bed. Only to wake up in a few hours and get ready for school. I don’t remember if he caught the bus that morning, but I do remember that he texted me first thing in the morning and we were texting for most of the morning. It was March 19th and I was eating breakfast with my sister, Kalei and my best friend, Monique. My hunie and I were still texting and then I got up the courage to ask him out over a text message.
He immediately said “Sure, why not”. He was also in the cafeteria with his friends playing cards about 3 tables away. So, I texted him to come and sit with me at the table. He came and my sister and Monique left us there alone. I was using a white shirt and capris and as usual he had on his only black and blue jacket and jeans. It was a little awkward at first, but we started talking a bit and then we headed down campus. He was shy and didn’t immediately hold hands with someone he just began “dating”. That was fine with me. When the bell rang, we walked our separate ways and that day after school, we walked home together.
We texted all day and then called each other at night until we fell asleep. The very next day was friday the 20th and the last day before spring break. After the assembly, instead of going to our last period (6th period), he told me to come with him down campus. He had a bag full of food and soda. We walked towards the lockers and then off onto the big grass field down campus. He took a big sheet out of his bag and laid it out under a tree. Then, he told me to sit down and asked me if I was hungry. (Yes, I was) He pulled out the food from the manapua man and we started to eat and talk story again.
It was kind of a chilly day, so he let me use his jacket. Then, he asked me if he could hold/hug me. I said that he could as long as he was okay with it. So, I laid in his arms under the tree and we just sat there for a while. I hate when my lips get dry, so I went to lick them and I didn’t know, but he saw what I did. He leaned in and grabbed my chin and lifted it up and gave me a kiss. I asked him what was that for, he looked at me and said “I thought that’s what you wanted.” I laughed and told him that I was only trying to get them wet so he wouldn’t see that they were getting dry. He laughed and then he kissed me again.
The picture above is from that day we had our picnic and when we shared our first kiss ^_^ We have been through so much and we are continuing on stronger everyday.
I LOVE YOU RHANI NAKI <3 FROM NOW UNTIL FOREVER!!
In my opinion, if you are in Hawaii and need a place to eat (and you don’t mind paying a pretty penny) then you should try and eat at “DUKE’S” Restaurant and Bar IN WAIKIKI (OAHU, HAWAII)
GOOD SERVICE, GOOD FOOD.
Words cannot express the feelings that I am feeling.
All I can say is that what ever happens, WILL happen.
Treat me differently or Treat me the same.
I don’t really care to play silly games.
Life is about making choices, dealing with the consequences and learning from the experiences.
I have my own life and you have your own.
Stop trying to treat me like I am still 10 years old.
I’m growing up. I’m getting wiser.
But the doesn’t mean that I won’t be needing you either.
I’m gonna love, and gonna love hard.
I’m gonna take what ever comes my way,
And make it through the best I can each and every day.
I love you RKKHN from now until forever!! ^_^
