a hundy

wow! one hundred posts! amazing! when i reluctantly started this blog, at the urging of bridget (thank you very much!), i NEVER thought i would get to one hundred posts, let alone in a short 4 months! i guess i really took to this blogging thing and ran with it. it's been a wonderful addition to my life!

first of all, i'd like to thank my husband for having such a great sense of humor about the whole thing and for actually encouraging me to continue. i love to hear him say, "you've gotta blog about that!"

next, i'd like to thank my camera for all of the wonderful pictures i am able to post. pictures add a great depth to the blog that i couldn't have achieved without my camera. having fun pictures actually makes me want to blog more.

of course, i couldn't have made it to one hundred without my lovely children. not only are they photogenic and adorable, but they provide me with great material to work with. i shiver to think how boring this blog would be without my children. what would it be without my swearing 10 month old, or lala's singing talent (here), or nani's dancing. what would it be without kawena's blow-out's or messy face, and nani's reading abilities or lessons learned? what would my blog be without lala's many, many, many comical moments? i don't even want to imagine it.

i'd like to thank my friends who invite me, or let me invite myself, on fun adventures and outings. and, of course, for those friends who faithfully read my blog and actually want to know what's going on in my little corner of the world. thank you for your many comments, i love to read them and i love knowing you have stopped by!

i need to thank my computer and the internet for making it all possible. i, literally, couldn't have done it without you!

lastly, but definitely not least, i would like to thank my parents and sister, as well, for reading and commenting! i am so happy that malia started her own blog, at my persistence so that we can see all of the fun they are having in hawai'i and stay more connected. now we just need the brothers and parents to start their own, too!

wow! that was a lot to say! basically, thank you all for helping me get to my 100th post!!

Elizabeth said...

I agree with Merilee. Do they have a Hundy statue, like the Oscar statue? Congratulations! BTW, it's so fun to be a non-lurker!

Mahina said...

Gee Wiz, I think I've missed some posts. I don't remember reading 100. I've got some homework to do.

Malia said...

hey mahina.... you should put your dot map on here now! Have you checked out ours? We've gone international!!! cool huh? ok love you!

Bridget said...

Look how sweet you are adding me in!! You really didn't have to, I realize I deserve the credit but seeing it in writing is gratifying. :) just teasing.

Hey, I just read your comment on Rachael's blog. I can't believe you could possibly have any baby fat to lose! Where in the world are you hiding it???

Mahina said...

oh, B, you are so kind! but believe me it is there! since i've been back at the gym the past week and a half, my weight is going up! i have mixed feelings about this! muscle is good, but i still have the pounds of fat to lose. i know it will take time, but come on kawena is almost 1!!

Amanda said...

Congrats! That is great! We have LOVED reading your posts. Thanks for sharing!

Bridget said...

It must be something about the third baby. I still have 3 more pounds to go and Cole is three years old! It's taken me the past 15 months to lose the other 7 pounds.

Mahina said...

first of all you look fabulous. and second of all, that does not make me feel better! so does that mean i have that long before i lose it, too? ugh!

Michal said...

congratulations. nice work.

Diana said...

A hundy in 4 months?!? just think...
200-8 months
300- 1 year
600- 2 years
etc... you could write a Mahimas Blog Booklet!

p.s.-I had to create another account and can comment again!!

Mahina said...

yay! diana i am so glad that you can comment now!

your little breakdown of my posts is pretty mind boggling! i wonder if i can keep up?! 600 in 2 years - that's crazy!!
