I made an amazing discovery today. My cats have been peering outside our back door at some birds that have been hanging around lately, and so I decided to check it out. Just to the right of our back door we have a hanging basket filled with silk flowers, and it seems that some birds decided to make it their home. I took this photo today after I found the nest and baby bird … I’m probably going to peek in regulary to see the other babies hatch out of their eggs :)

Andrew and I bought a new car this weekend, a Honda CRV SE. Actually, it’s “my” car, since he just got one this last December :). I needed a vehicle with 4-doors, since mine was a small two-door coupe, and eventually we’ll have kids and need to stow them in the back easier. Plus, if we get the cars now, then they’ll be paid off while we have two incomes coming in … I’m not planning on working when we start having kids … preferably after I get out of the Navy in about 4 or 5 years.

I started working a day job this week. It’s going to be so nice to have “normal” hours, and I’ll have the same time off that my husband does, which is definitely the best part. We’re planning on starting to go to church regularly now, since I won’t have to work on Sundays, and we’ll probably make going to the beach a semi-regular weekend routine. We went to a beach lagoon in Ko’olina with Dave McLaughlin and Eric Schwarze last weekend (an extremely beautiful resort not too far from where we live) and had a really good time. It’s probably one of the best locations to see a beautiful beach in Oahu, since it’s not near Waikiki and so there aren’t nearly as many people.
