Beautiful MADRE


Just had to post up the picture of my mom in her beautiful formal she wore the night I went to happy valley. For those of you who don't know my mom, she's the realest of the real seriously if she don't like you she will seriously tell you...sometimes I wish I was like that but then again not really but sometimes I am too real and I don't even know it LOL, but she and my sisters have been a big motivation to me in wanting to lose weight and eat healthy I LOVE my momma even though at times I give her a headache but she still loves me unconditionally thanks mom for setting me strait Love you too much!



Ever since I've returned from ARIZONA I've been wanting to see my ONE VOICE familia everyday cause I was used to seeing them in the AZ, LOL yeah you would think I would be sick of seeing them everyday but NO really this is a really good and fun group to be around, not only do they bring the crazy side outta me but they also bring the SPIRITUAL side of me out something that I need and am truly blessed to be around. Alot of people think that what we do is a waste of time and whatnot, but we see it as missionary work, and for me this is something really big seems the year I was planning on going on a mission was the year we found out that my lil brother Daniel had cancer, so plans for me had changed so I can help out the parentals. And being a part of ONE VOICE is like doing missionary work. So this past sunday was spent all day with the choir and the spirit is ALWAYS AMAZING, we had been asked to do a sacrament meeting in a palangi ward and I was the last testimony and me and directions don't go very well I'm telling you this because I totally got lost looking for the chapel LOL (go figure) my navigator (Lupi) wasn't able to make it for she needed to attend her ward, so therefore by the time I got to the chapel it was time for me to bare testimony...the minute I got there Noke (soon to be Elder Tonga) was speaking and tears just came down my cheeks like I've been there the whole time, the spirit is an amazing thing and I'm soo grateful to have it a part of mine. That meeting was finished we had a break and the bishopric from that ward had sandwiches and donuts for us so we went to poplar grove and ate and took pics, following that we went to Nina Brunt's lil bro's farwell where we sang prelude and then Marvelous work how how strong was the spirit there we had a lil audience before we actually sang and the tears coming down there face was priceless. Following the farewell we then attended a homecoming of Stanley Tui'one's brother WOW the power of missionary work is just so amazing I tell yah. We left around 4 pm we had a dinner appointment with Tiare Olevau she was having a fireside for her ward she's such an amazing woman her and her hubby's goal is to convert as many souls as they can, we had the fireside and it was indeed another spiritual experience, Tiare was shocked at how strong the spirit was and to see the choir members in tears amazed her as well, as many times as we've shared our testimonies there is NEVER a dry eye I'm telling you. We finished the fireside and Tiare had came and thanked us and said that there was 3 non members in the congregation and all three of them set up an appointment to see the missionaries...I LOVE busy sundays like this not only being with the choir but strenghthening my testimony is what I LOVE THE MOST...this gospel is TRUE and I've been blessed to have it in my life, and I'm looking forward to continuing to spread his word...Next trip PORTLAND OREGON in AUGUST!!

This was another EXCITING event, getting together with the first cousins (GIRLS ONLY)dinner. So our older sister Sipola texted us all about getting together at olive garden for dinner so we can catch up and whatnot seems it's been awhile since we've all actually been together. This was something we were ALL stoked about after being in Lindon for the graduation and then thinking that we're going to be together the following day was just to good to be true LOL. Our family is really close and to hear others say how lucky and blessed we are to be this close is just well said cause that we are a CLOSE KNIT FAMILY. We all may have our differences, but we get over it real quick and when it comes to getting together and laughing you better believe those around us want to join in on our laughs. Funny thing is I think the LOUD TALKING just runs deep in the FILI blood cause that we was doing and the laughs were just to dang LOUD LMBO sorry OLIVE GARDEN but hey we definitely gave y'all some good business so bettah don't LOL, maybe next time y'all can put us in our own ROOM hahhaaha. It was just good company, good food, and great memories. After we had got done eating believe me when we say we was the LAST ones in the building cause we seriously were..we had taken a picture in front of the Olive garden, then we headed out to visit uncle Jay's girls man I'm still trippen over the lil girls I use to babysit are now mothers how amazing is that, we went over and I think we woke up all the kids cause they was screaming I wish I took a pic but my camera was in my truck most definitely next time...I have been BLESSED with the BEST family...Love you fili sistah's til next month we will see y'all at the next fale kai LOL!!!

Ilaisa'ane Kelissa Filimoe'atu CLASS of 2010 BYU

April 23, 2010

I got a phone call from cuzzin' Saane about her graduating from BYU, and her saying she really didn't tell anyone but called me to let me know. At first I was thinkin' to go or not to go, seems the tags on my ride was expired and I didn't want to drive out by myself, so more thinking went into it. Madre called me at work kinda heated cause she heard from someone else instead of from me or the graduate and I said to her Mom she doesn't want to fk-hela anyone that's why she didnt' call you, she called me and told me about it I just forgot to tell you LOL weh ma bad on that one, she calmed down and was like oh ok as long as she called you I'm fine with that. So I went to the gym on thursday I believe and met up with Lupi and mentioned to her that I was planning on going to happy valley for the graduation and she was totally down to go with me to Happy Valley and off we went the drive was kinda crappy just cause of the rain but when we got there it was all fine and dandy. We got there and was greeted by auntie Kehau at the door the girls were getting ready we had got there in time to head out with them to the marriot center. This class was a pretty big graduating class 6,000 graduates so they had broke it up into sections, Saane's group was only the second part..Anyways it's always good to be in happy valley with family...that's my mini vaca is the filimoe'atu home. We came back after the Grad to the house for some yummy grub...Lupi and I met some really cool people, and just chopped it up here are a few pic's of the graduation so enjoy...CONGRATS SIS on your accomplishments!! We'll be in happy valley again...Love your guts!

ONE VOICE in MESA ARIZONA after the dance

APRIL 9-12, 2010

Oh boy where do I begin I've been totally stoked for this trip with ONE VOICE to Mesa Arizona, for it has been along time since I got to spend time with my ONE VOICE familia, and the new members in the choir. Heck I just wanted to get up and outta UTARR it was bout that time to get up and go. We left at midnight thursday night after institute and we had a total of 5 rides to leave that night the 6th ride was going to drive up the next day. In our ride was Filipe (Grandpa) the driver, MUMz (Ana Tafisi), Pongai, Tigerballz (Ruby), & my BFF (Howard). The drive was nice just relaxing and camping on my FB on the phone hahaha gotta LOVE technology, and listening to Howard and Ruby fight LOL. We was on a roll clowning and what not, we made a couple of stops here and there the drive was ridiculously crazy with tons of twists and turns like literally I was getting dizzy hahaha ok I'm over exaggerating but it really was a crazy ride. We reached Flagstaff at about 7 a.m. friday morning and Leia decided he wanted to take the lead as he was trying to pass one of the rides up the POPO clocked him bwahahaha hence the train pulling over to the gas station LOL. While we all waited the Highway Patrol came to all of the vehicles and asked for license and registration LMBO yeah everyone was worried but they had issued the drivers a warning and while they were issuing warnings the passengers of the vehicles was playing volleyball yeah you would think we'd sit still in the car NOPE always have a volleyball handy it'll kill time hahaha. Anyways we were off and more cautious now as we drove lesson learned yessireee. Anyways to make my post short we got to the FALEVAI home around 11 or noon not quite sure but they had LUNCH ready for us along with a big banner saying ARIZONA WELCOMES ONE VOICE how awesome is that. We rested for a bit Friday showered and got dressed to head on to the children's hospital to sing, what an amazing experience it was to just have the opportunity to sing there, the smile on the kids & parents faces were priceless...we then headed over to Rocky Hamilton's place where he and his ARIZONA Krew would be BBQin' for us we just chilled and played vball as some went swimming just relaxing and fun overall pretty beat but the AZ peeps wanted to chill but we on the other hand was to tired and said we'll chill tomorrow so off to sleep we went. Girls at the Falevai's and guys to Ray Mataele's house. This was the first trip I had gone on that we had to separate guys and girls we're sooo use to be all together but it was good cause I had the opportunity to meet alot of the girls that I didn't know before hence my lil roomies Vicelia, Ketura, Deisha, Mere, so glad to have met these young ladies and to get to know them more. Saturday morning we were volunteering at the SHAPE UP ARIZONA really really fun, and I also had the opportunity to meet Sione and Filipe FA who have inspired me to get up and get moving that was a big HIGHLIGHT for me, after the volunteer work we headed back to the Mesa chapel where the Falevai's had lunch for us and we had gameday boi was the AZ heat kickin' my "A" woah like seriously if i was to live there I think I'd be skinny LMBO cause I drank more then I ate...Uncle Gilbert & Auntie Luti came over to take Lupi and I out but according to rules of the choir we couldn't really go hoiii so we told Uncle that we'd hit him up. Later on that evening we had attended the DANCE they had held for us Anapou did a tauolunga and Nia did her selenas routine off the hook. Anyways that was that we had hit up uncle that we were gonna come on through to his house we meaning Me, Lupi, Vicelia, Ketura, Deisha, Masi, as we were headed there we came across some trials but before that we went to Jack in the box hella funny incident...Masi was ordering his food and he was totally outta it like he was literally tired while he was ordering i just kept hearing the guy say ok maam is there anything else and he kept sayin maam, i heard the guy the first time but didnt think masi heard anyways to make a long story short mas finally heard him say maam...MASI YELLED BACK ITS SIRRRR bwahahaha, then when we go to the window to pay i notice the guy in the window and we're slowly moving forward the guy sticks out his head and yells SIR SIR SIR bwahahaha we all busted up laughing cause masi was sooo not awake he had to reverse back to the window...as we pulled up to wait for our food the guy in the window hella rolled his eyes and we started laughing even more. Anyways we got to unk's house and lupi and i go to change and we jump into the pool OMG talk about freezing then we hear masi and lu and i decided to get out and just change to head back home cause apparently we broke the rules LMBO as we were driving i just let it get to me and i was hecka going off saying stuff I shouldn't of said and bless masi's heart with his comforting words has calmed me down saying you know we're here for a good cause and satan will do anything to break our OV family apart with that being said I had humbled myself and thought you know your right. Everyone else went to Mo's house to chill while we came strait home after takin' the one dip in the pool, we got home and we all jumped on the futon in our room Lu, me, deisha, ketura, Vicelia fun time good laughs and good time getting to know them LOVE these lil ones. Sunday was overall AMAZING it was testimony meeting and I had been crying all night and morning just filled with the comfort and love of our savior I was prompted to stand up and share my testimony (something that I was totally surprised) but the spirit totally took over me and has humbled me alot, also being able to see family David & Nancy Bloomfield amazing, later on that night we had our fireside, man was the spirit totally there soo grateful for the LOVE of our father in heaven to guide us and to prompt us with his teachings there was sooo many inactives and non members at the fireside to hear them tell us how they have been touched is amazing I LOVE THIS GOSPEL. Unk hit us up about coming to his house and we did go YAY midnight swimming and unk & auntie feeding the choir as they jamm. I LOVE MY FAMILY, I LOVE MY OV FAMILY, and I LOVE THIS GOSPEL many more trips to come enjoy the pics as I have enjoyed sharing the gospel through music with my OV family!!
