Just posting an update to my religion post from 11/27. I have been busy so this took place about a week ago but I really want to update you all about it. As a quick preface, my wife and I spent our honeymoon in Hawaii back in June/July. We fell in love with Hawaii so much that we started looking for houses after the first week. When we came home, moving to Hawaii became almost an inside joke. We mentioned it and talked about how awesome it would be but that was it, which brings me to the heart of the story.
My wife got home from work the other day and immediately suggested we go get sushi at a local restaurant. I could always go for sushi so I agreed. During dinner my wife just blurts out "I so want to move to Hawaii." Now we have been talking about this for some time now but we both cast it aside as wishful thinking. As soon as she said that I immediately put down my cup of tea and said "Oh god I want to move there so bad." Which started a lengthy discussion about if it was even possible.
By the time our dinner was over we had a plan. Since she will be graduating college at the end of the summer of 2012, she will apply to graduate school in Hawaii. After she gets settled down there, she will start looking at houses for us and get the paperwork started to buy something. It's going to be a rocky road to move our lives out there but it will be so worth it in the end.
So our official plan is to be moving out to Hawaii by December of 2012, just in time to watch the world end from Waikiki beach. :)
