mommy & me matching swimsuits c/o (rad swim)
Current situation it is 4:30 am and no one can sleep, well nobody but Hudson that is. I am usually a “sleeper inner” like Hudson, but I am way too excited to close my eyes. So I am blogging, naturally.
Yesterday we flew out of SLC around noon and landed around 3pm Hawaii time (it’s a 4hr. difference for us) after a long flight we had no idea what time of day it was, we didn’t even know if we were hungry and/or tired, all we knew is that we needed to get in our swimsuits asap!
Upon arrival we were greeted with gifts. All the kids got turtle necklaces, the girls got real leis, and Dallin got a brown beaded necklace.
When I got lei’d, mine was “broken”, or so I thought. The staff then told me my lei was “broken/cut” on purpose. Because a pregnant lady should never wear a lei unless it is open ended, it is bad luck. The lei represents the umbilici chord, and if you wear a non cut lei your baby will be born with the chord around it’s neck, or so they say.
So needless to say I will be wearing only open ended lei’s while here on my baby moon. Both my boys both had their umbilici chords wrapped around their necks, Britons even had a true knot in his, so it would be really great if Baby B avoids all that.
Today we explore the hotel-I am loving all the Mickey touches, the pools, lagoons, and beach. I need to get familiar with “my island”. We swam in the first pool we saw and ate at first restaurant we walked by so this is probably why I can’t currently sleep, I’m just too excited to go explore.
