"The greatest gift I ever had Came from God; I call him Dad!"

It's been a month and 2 weeks since my dad passed away. I haven't even started my blog and i'm literally crying at this moment NBFR. I can't even explain the pain that I feel at this moment. I lost my best friend and someone I have looked up to for the past 26 years of my life. I know i'm being selfish when I ask God why my dad, why now? but it's so hard not to think that way. He has no pain, no dialysis 3 times a day, no more sickness, and he can finally sleep peacefully cause it was so hard for him to get a full nights rest, I can honestly say that my dad is happier than he's ever been right now and I know he's patiently waiting for the love of his life,my MOM.

I wish I had more time with my dad, there's so many things that I wanted him be here for when the time comes, We don't have kids yet but I wish he were here to hold and watch them grow, I want them to know who there papa is. I want you to be there when me and drew go through the temple which is what you wanted most from us. Last week 08/08/2012 I went to visit my dad after work, as I put flowers on his grave I had to say something because since my dad died I've felt so guilty I told him, "Dad I'm so sorry I wasn't able to give you what you want while you were here, but I promise you before I leave this earth I will know that I will see you again." and I can't wait for that day.

My mom would always tell me that my dad worries about me the most because of my weight and because of other things I do in my life, when my dad would tell me that I need to lose weight I just blame him for all the good food he cooks lol plus he was the one always calling me to come over and eat haha.. he would just smile and tell me to shutup lol. I can go on and on about my dad and the great person that he is, but I won't lol.

I miss you so much, I will do my best to make you proud. Give me strength to do what I have to do to make myself happy and my family, please watch over mom and us and keep us healthy and strong, I love you with all my heart dad and I will see you again.

Your Daughter,

**Juice Pleeease**

So Lately I’ve been thinking about losing weight and getting healthier cause I see my dad and how sick he’s been getting I know that I’m heading in the same path with how much weight I’ve gained. Most of it is because I eat out a lot with my friends and cousin and also I eat a lot when I’m at home cause my husband works swing shift so I’m at home by myself lol!! Anyways my friend told me about this Juice thing that her cousin had did and also she is doing it as well and the lbs just shed right off so I wanted to try it first to make sure I can at least handle taking the drink and it wasn’t too bad it’s better then the lemonade detox that I did a while ago so I decided to start 11/10/2011 which was a Thursday, I was going to wait til Monday but I just decided that it would be better to start right now so I did. Since I’m so use to eating everything LMAO I was cutting it down to the juice for every meal and drinking water in between.

This is kind of hard to say but I don’t really care anymore my starting weight as of 11/10 was 293lbs fricken FAT A I know lol..don’t laugh.. I was determined once I saw those numbers.

2 Cucumbers
4 Celery Stalks
6 Kale Leaves
1 Lemon
2 Green Apples
1 Pear
1 Ginger Stalk (Thumb size)

And I bought a juicer from Wal Mart for $30.91(incl tax). It has to be juiced not blended.

After day 1 I came into work drank the juice for breakfast hopped on the scale and BOOM!! I was at 286lbs I was like WTF so I had to do it again lol and it was (I use the scale at work cause we do biggest loser there so it’s accurate and it’s the expensive kind too lol) but I did lose 7lbs on my first day YAY!! That’s what kept me going to drink the juice and workout(playing vball and going to the gym)

Day 3 it was hard because first it was the weekend 2nd we had my niece sleep over Friday which she and my husband chowed down on some Mcdonalds while I sat there and drank my juice haha I was tempted to eat it but I did pick it up stared at it as my mouth started to water hahahaha then I put it back down with a sad face lol The next day we took my niece to Hollywood Connections and while we were there we got her some ice cream with whip cream and a cherry(FYI I’m a sucker for ice cream lol) but I resisted thank goodness my husband didn’t eat any lol but it got worse after. We went to our cousin’s place to watch THE BIGGEST DUCK #90 Rickson Heimuli who plays for OREGON DUCKS game vs STANFORD and there was pizza, soda and musubi’s ugh really? Haha another moment where I just touched the food and put it back down lol even worse I had to feed my niece pizza and I was imagining it going into my mouth rather than hers lol Real talk lol but I resisted YAY!! Next we headed to the bar where my husband’s cousin Soakai aka DECOY was performing and dang did I want a drink lol but I drank water the whole night  but it’s a good thing it’s helping me lose weight as well as quit drinking so I’m headed in the right direction, just taking it step by step.

Day 4- My dad calls in the morning asking us to come over for dinner and if you know my dad he don’t make no small meal it’s a whole lot of food. We got there and I open the door and I see fried chicken, rice, steaks, gravy, soda and Salad OMG I about died but I did bring my juicer and all the stuff I needed to make my juice and I was fine for a couple hours until I kept staring at the table wanting to eat something then my friend called to go play vball and yes it was on a Sunday lol & I bolted out the door haha so far I’m doing pretty good and hope to continue. I decided to weigh myself once a week so no worries I’ll keep you updated. Oh and YES the picture is what the diet is called

Sept 2011- Sept 2013**

I can't say it enough of how proud I am of my baby brother. Can't believe how fast he's grown up. Unlike me, my brother had a plan after high school go to college, work than go on his mission which he did go to college at UVU after he put school on hold to prepare for his mission he started working and now he is currently serving his mission in Riverside California. He left to the MTC 09/14/2011 so as of today it's been already almost 3 months(Crazy how time flies). Well the weekend of his farewell was such an emotional roller coaster this past year I got to spend alot of time with my brother, he always came over to the house and hangout and play vball and we we grew really close as siblings. Friday we had an open gym playing vball at the ward with us and all of our friends that we play vball with came, Sat we had a BBQ for our whole family, Sunday was the farwell where we actually got to hear him speak and that's when I realized how he grown up and how mature he has gotten, he still has alot of growing up to do but I know it will take time. Of course as his sister i got emotional but i luvd his talk and also the musical numbers by my sister Tilly and cousins JB and Kayleen.

The best part was having our whole entire family at church well we were all at church the week before for my Baby Pearls blessing .. Mom, Dad, Phoenix, Martin, Nita, Me, Tilly & Rex I think the last time we were all at church was ummm I can't even remember lol. I'm so grateful for all the blessings that my brother has blessed our family with by sacrificing 2 years of his life to serve the lord. I love and miss my brother so much and I know that he will be the best missionary he can be.

We Love You Elder Alo

First name is of course my name and her middle name is actually my mother in law. My in laws luv my sisters kids like their own grandkids (it's a sign that me and my hubby need to give them grand babies lol) but they always want to watch the kids and spoil them lol so my sister and her husband decided to name baby after Leila Poteki(Andrew's Mom). She's so lucky to be named after 2 beautiful women lol. I'm excited to watch her grow up and have that special bond with her. I love you baby PEARLEI( that's what my in-laws call her lol)

I hope we can be some what of an example to you just like your mom and dad have been for us. I love you unconditionally.

There's No Place Like Home

Ever since me and my husband got married we've always wanted to have our own place. As the months went by I knew that moving to our own home wouldn't be as soon as i thought it would be, there was times where one of us wouldn't have a job and i know for sure that we can't stay in our own place depending on only one income paying for everything. So 2 years later after both of us finding really good jobs and being there for a while we decided to move out and start looking for our own place. I thought it would be easy but HELL no, driving everywhere and going to all kinds of apartments and filling out apps was starting to get a little frustrating, I would spend most of my time at work looking through ksl, magazines etc and still nothing I wanted to give up( after a week of searching lol) but my husband was so eager to move out that he kept me going..

One night about 9pm we were just getting home from looking at a place and I hop online too search some more and I came across this add on KSL 3BR 1B $600.00 Duplex, I didn't believe it but I called it anyways and the lady told us that we can come see it the next morning so I said ok, after I hung up I was like "I'm gonna call her back and ask if we can see it now lol" she said it was ok so we went up there and took a tour of the place & we fell in love with it and it really was only $600.00 lol we were trippin out but after all the paper work and background checks we finally got the place, our own home. YAY!! We moved in First week of June 2011 and we are loving it. We feel so independent, it's hard just cause all the bills that we have to take care of but we love it and it brings us closer together. Pics are from when we were cleaning everything, that's why it looks kinda messy lol. I'm still debating on how i want our place to look and i don't really like the white walls every where so i want to add some color not sure what tho lol

Are you Ready?

This past weekend all I kept hearing was it's the end of the world this weekend(May 21,2011). I'm like whatever pfft!! but than it got me really thinking, what if it really was? am I ready to face god on judgement day..Hecks no!! Theres so many things i want to experience before my time comes to leave this earth.

*Have Kids- 6 preferably lol
*One day get Sealed as a Family
*Hubby will join the NFL which will lead to my next one which is
---->*Be rich lol

Well that's just a couple things but with what's going on in the world today I feel it's coming and I can just say to myself that i'm not ready:( Hopefully soon we can come to realize that in the end nothing matters but my family and if i'm not sealed to my family for all time and eternity I won't see them in the next life. I think about if i'm not sealed to my family what or where will I be in the next life. Will I be an animal or will I be the richest or poorest person on earth.. What? Well I don't want it to come to that so I hope that one day me and my husband will take that next step. ♥ my family.

Sisterly Love

I can't express the love I have for my sisters, especially for bringing my lil rugrats into this world. My sisters are my best friends no matter what arguments we have it only brings us closer. We've always been close and i cherish every moment I have with them.

Last year my little sister Tilly and her family moved to Washington and it's so hard to not have her here. I love that girl even tho she can be a brat sometimes lol she's a mother of 2 lil boys Dreysen and Zeland. When I hang out with the boys and they do stupid things it makes me say " uh huh that's there mother right there" lol. I miss and love my little sister so much and hope they move back soon, it's just not the same without her. She'll always be my little bratty sister, and I would do anything for her and her family. ♥ you Til.

My older sister Lenita who is a mother of 2 and 1 on the way, Sini, Teiko and coming soon in August little Pearlisha Lei Fonua. So blessed to have her in my life she's such a great example to me and I'm so grateful that they would name there daughter after me (well of course, cause i'm the favorite aunty lol). I love my sister and I look up to her, she can be annoying sometimes but I know she let's me know to better myself and be better for my family.

Now the Fun part, memories that I have had with my sisters.

With Tilly we've had too many the best one is when my mom use to always force us to do piano, guitar, singing lessons and play sports on top of that. Tilly would always be the best at everything and my mom would always sign us up to sing in front of people. The worst was when she made us sing for the Samoan Flag Week OMG so not the business, you have 3 girls tryna sing Dixie Chicks hahahaha lol. The next year my mom made us sing again but we didn't want to, Nita was like I ain't singing and she just walks off being fiapoko lol. Me and Tilly talked and we were like " what the heck are we gonna do?" so what we did was hide throughout the park and every time we would see my mom tryna look for us we would run away and hide under a tree or run to the opposite side of the park lol so funny my cousins til this day still laugh about.

With Nita the best one was going to High School with her. I was a sophomore and she was a senior, we played volleyball and basketball together but during school we would hardly talk lol I would try to go and hang out with her and her friends but she would always give me the look like the ummm get away you annoying lil girl look lol. No one even knew we were sisters other than our team mates, they thought we were just friends lol. I always wanted to be around her cause I thought she was so called "COOL" lol I was lil and was new to the whole high school thing and I thought my sister would at least talk to me lol.. ya she acted like she didn't know me hahaha..

I have the best sisters ever we all play sports together and share common interests. As we grew older our relationship grew stronger. We are all married now and we still try and get together every once in a while but with Tilly living in a different state it's hard, we miss her so much. Sisterly Love is the perfect word for us, we help each other in times of need and are always their to comfort each other when we are down. I love you Tilly and Nita and thank you for everything you do for me.
