Remember that lovely game called Whack-A-Mole.
Well, my husband and I had our own rendition of it the night. 
But instead of a mallet, we used shoes. 
And instead of moles, we wacked cockroaches.
All over our kitchen floor.  

Because even though  my house appears calm and relatively clean during the daytime, as soon as the clock hits midnight, the roaches come out.  The majority of them are fairly small (about the size of my fingernails) thank goodness.  But still...why are there SO MANY??
I love Hawaii so much, but I would love a good bug bomb about now.

The good news?
I just found out last week that the hubby and I got our housing transfer approved.
Which means we will be moving to a one-bedroom apartment next month!
You hear that? A BEDROOM!
If you didn't already know, my husband and I currently live in a teeny tiny studio.
We like to call it "cozy."
But next month, we will be saying "so long!" to the studio and "hello!" to the one-bedroom.
I am soooo excited about this you guys. Plus, I will have some free time on my hands this summer, which means I'll have time for new decorating projects!
And since we will now be on the second floor, I'm crossing my fingers we won't have as many little critters.

This summer is going to be fan-TASTIC! I am actually leaving on a plane today and flying home!
This will be the first time Beau and I have been home since we got married.
We'll be traveling around the east coast for about three weeks and then back to Hawaii mid June.
We're gonna be busy but doing a lot of exciting stuff, so be looking forward to some fun stories!
In the meantime, I will be having some guest bloggers posting in the next few days and next week.  If anyone is still interested in guest posting for me, I'd love to chat about it! My e-mail is up top under the "Contact" tab.  Shoot me an email if you're interested.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week! I know I've been absent from blogging for awhile, but this last week has been crazy trying to prepare for our trip.  So you may hear from me once more, but if not, enjoy all the guest bloggers you'll hear from.  I promise they're all wonderful!

Congratulations on the new flat, you must be so excited! I'm making a similar move in the next few months and the thought of so much storage space makes me feel practically ill with excitement :P

There's something for you over at my blog by the way http://summerdreamsx.blogspot.com

Ooh! Watch out with that! I just learned that roaches are full of eggs and when you squish them you wind up tracking the eggs with you all over. Might be why these are so many.

Have you tried fumigating? Can you do that in HI? (Yeah, I'm stupid enough to ask that one.)

Good luck, girl! My first place had bedbugs... not a fun way to live! I feel your pain.
