Raptor + Unicorn = Raptorcorn (the two coolest creates to ever roam the earth!)
While Raptors are vicious, masculine, badass and kinda cute,
Unicorns are quite the opposite, being graceful, feminine, magical creatures. This is me...the best of both worlds all wrapped up in one!
What once started as a personal journal is now a log of all life's adventures. Take a look back to see what once was and look below to see what is now.
Sit back, crack a beer and enjoy the journey...

Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole
10 small flour tortillas
20oz Green Chile Enchilada sauce
3 chicken breasts
8oz sour cream
salt, pepper, cumin
16 oz cheese (I prefer half Colby and half Jack)
Boil chicken until cooked through, then cool and shred.
Turn oven to broil and put the tortillas on the top shelf. Once the top side browns, flip and take out once the other side it slightly browned. Then rip them in quarters.
Grab a 9x11 glass baking dish. Divide the tortillas, chicken, sour cream, and cheese in thirds.
Proceed with the first third of ingredients:
Dip the pieces of tortilla into the enchilada sauce and line the bottom of the dish (more sauce is better)
Place chicken on top, evenly spaced
Spread out Sour Cream as much as possible
Sprinkle with cheese
Scatter with salt, pepper and cumin
If you have any enchilada sauce left, drizzle it all over the top.
Bake at 425 on middle rack for 35 minutes or until top is slightly brown and crispy.
As I've settled into living on Kauai I have not been traveling all that much, but been enjoying little adventures along the way. Here is what I have been up to!
Lei making for Lana's birthday.
Lots of reading on the beach!
David came to visit and while we didn't get huge surf we caught some fun waves.
My new place! It's so cute! Perfect Lanai for working.
The view from my workstation.
My new place also has bees that I am learning about. Hopefully I can figure out how to harvest my own honey.
Ukulele lessons. So much fun with friends!
My new toy! She needs a little work and love, but we are going to have so much fun this summer!
Some of the destruction from the north shore flooding.
Helping friends with the new trampoline.
Waves! I love when someone gets to take pictures so I can see what I need to work on (everything!).
Finally took a trip to see Oahu! It was fun, but made me appreciate where I live.
A lifelong dream has been in the making as learning to sail (and hopefully owning a boat) is becoming a reality. Six friends decided to take a sailing course through the Virgin Islands on a 44' catamaran. We started in St Thomas and navigated all through the American and British Virgin Islands.
We started the trip by flying into St Thomas, then taking the ferry from Red Hook to Cruz Bay on St John's. We had a friend there who we wanted to see so it was a perfect way to start the trip! We ended up camping in a 'permanent tent' at Cinnamon Bay which was pretty cool.
As we walked out the front of our tent, the beach was 20 feet away! The snorkeling right out front was very mediocre, but as we learned later in the week, if we went out another 100 meters, it got much better. We saw turtles, small sharks, big grouper and lots of other sea life. After walking/hitchhiking back to Cruz Bay, we hopped on our ferry back to St Thomas to get on our boat.
