Short Vids


I figured out how to work the system!

For your viewing pleasure, Chris and I have begun creating 'short vids': 30 second clips that will upload easily as opposed to our 4-5 minute regular videos which time out before our slow connection can get 'em up.

Three things to note:

1) I am the sole spokesperson of these videos, at least for today, because Chris was in a no-video funk. However, in our last week here, he has pretty much been the sole member of Team Trementozzi to be seen on the video, as I am usually the one wielding the camera. 

2) I realize each time I see myself on video how much I speak with my hands. Like, an insane amount. I blame it on my 3 ASL classes in college. 

3) It's been pretty overcast the last couple days, so don't be shocked when you don't see the lush, beautiful blue of Hawaii in the background. It's a little sad that it's so cloudy here when I hear it's hitting 114 degrees back home. Despite the clouds, the temperature still remains around 80-90 (fluctuates quite a bit at any given moment depending on cloud cover), and Chris and I remain continuously bathed in sweat from the humidity.

As we've been sitting here, out in the lovely internet-fed lounge, I've fed into the youtube craze and created an account. Videos seem to be uploading a LOT quicker to that site, and I believe if you go to the first video here, you'll be able to click on my username to access the rest. I may or may not be adding more videos as the week goes on. We'll see how many more evenings we'll have time for lounging. We've booked quite a few activities for the rest of the week, and I never know when I'll come back to our room and pass out from exhaustion, or when I'm up for staying out past 9 p.m. Honeymooning is tiring, people.

I tried.

Sorry, Moms. I tried uploading some videos of our days here, but our internet connection seems to be way too slow to properly handle something as complex as a video upload. I'll try again tomorrow, after we get back from kayaking and snorkeling!

Internet! Blessed Internet!

My beloved husband tells me I am addicted to the internet. This is because for the past four days we've been in Hawaii, it has not been readily available, and one might say it's made me a bit moody.

What's moody about insisting to check my email on his Blackberry the second we sit down for any meal?

What's moody about being perturbed the Blackberry is being used for GPS purposes on long car rides, and not for me to update my Facebook status?

What's moody about just wanting THE WORLD to know what I'm doing and how I'm doing it and when and where and why?

It was quite a culture shock coming from our first night stay at the Hard Rock Hotel, where we had free wireless in the room, to the beautiful little Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu where they charge you $16 a night to be hooked up to a foot long cable in the corner.

Seriously, Hilton Hawaiian Village? I know what you charge. You're really telling me wireless is too much to ask for?

Today we flew from Oahu to the Big Island (actual Hawaii), and checked in to our awesome little timeshare resort. After crazy hopping downtown Honolulu, this little beach town of Kona is so cute and quaint... and has free wireless in all the main lobbies.

Thank you, Jesus, for internet.

And while Chris and I should be sitting down here in the outdoor lobby looking up adventurous things to do in Hawaii, he's actually commenting on Studio Castillero's Jordan & Chris Glimpse shots and I'm checking in on all of my usual haunts: yahoo, facebook, google reader.... Probably won't get anything done tonight, but that's okay. We're on vacation, and we did just fly in after all. I won't even talk about how spectacularly amazingly fantastic our trip is, except for the amazing steamed zucchini I had at lunch earlier.

It was so good, it made me sad for Chris. He doesn't like zucchini. What a tragic world he lives in.

First Post


We're married! It's so crazy!

Right now, it is Wednesday night, two days after the most spectacular wedding I truly believe anybody has ever had. Chris and I are sitting out on our hotel balcony, looking at our view of downtown Honolulu and the Waikiki beach. It's pretty amazing. I mean, we are freaking in Hawaii. Hawaii! And we're married. Married!

That's all for now. We've got a 2 hour time limit on internet, and we spent most of it looking through Facebook for uploaded pictures of our wedding. ;)

If you want to see the glimpse from our spectacular amazing freaking awesome photographers, Rico and Rachel Castillero, you can go here. Here are just a few low res images I pulled from Facebook; aren't they just fantastic?
