What I will miss while I'm in New York....

My Brothers & Sisters...
Well Duhhh who wouldn't? I have the greatest siblings ever!
First is my oldest brother Pulu Otukolo
When I was little we were so close. When everyone else cried for my mom I was crying for him! Lol As we grew up we kinda grew apart but I still feel close with him through his kids & wife & see him as a father figure. His wife Dianna has been with us ever since I can remember (Since I was ten) and she's been like one of my real sisters. I can clown on her, & talk to her bout everything. She always has great advice!
Tevita Otukolo
(who is single ladies lol) Where do I start with him? We were never super close when I was younger and I barely talked to him but as I have grown up we have gotten closer & I love talking to him. He always gives us the honest advice. You know the kind that kinda hurts sometimes? Lol but I'm glad he don't beat around the bush. Even when it comes down to fashion. (Hes not gay. Lol) he'll just tell you if something looks funny on you. This guy will do anything for us. He'll spend his last dollar on us if we wanted it. He is the most selfless person I know! When I first had the thought of serving an LDS mission the first person I wanted to talk to was him. He was the only one of my siblings that served a mission so I wanted to know how it was. This talk with him was what really made me decide that a mission was the next step for me.
Leafa Faletau

Married to Alo Faletau of Provo. Fah grew up with my grandparents for a while than came back home to us. As we were growing up I was scared of her. Now we have a bond so close! I love hanging out with her because we just crack up about everything & talk about how annoying guys are! Not about her husband of course! lol And anything else there is to talk about. She always has my back and tells me what I need to hear not want to hear. I know I can count on her for anything. A couple months ago I got into a car accident in her & her husbands truck :/ and I felt like crap! But I'm glad out of all my bros & sisters it was hers because her & her husband were really nice & understanding. Idk how the other would have taken that.
Keila Otukolo
My brother I like to call my sister! lol He is married to Sina Laulu of West Valley, whom I have always been close to. I would tell her all my secrets & talk crap about my sisters to her, you know the usual stuff. I was with Keila & Sina at the hospital the whole time Sina was getting ready to have baby Vita & for most of Damian's birth. I loved being with them because I finally got to be alone, I was kinda spoiled. I remember when we were little Pulu would always make me cook him some saimini. Sometimes I would walk over to Keila & tell him Pulu said for him to make some saimini. Keila never believed me so he would go ask Pulu & he would be annoyed and tell him to just go make it. Man I was so smart! lmbo
Luseni Lapota

The older twin Married to Paea from good ol' Oakland. He is such a big help to my family. My mom always calls him before she calls her own sons! smh He is such a family man and he is a perfect balance for my crazy sister. Growing up me & Sen were really close. We used to bully Lynn all the time because she was always snitching! lol When Seni got married things changed. Paea stole her away from me! lol When she was prego  I was so excited for her & loved helping her & I still do. We kinda bump heads here and there because we're too much alike. Stubborn! lol
Lene Tenifa

Married to Lolo Tenifa. He is so kind to me. Always looking out. Only bad thing is he is a Utes fan :/ lol Lynn & I grew closer together when we worked together at the Hampton Inn. Everyone always asked how we liked working together since we're sisters and honestly, I loved it! I mean who better to work with than someone who really knows you!? I was not a morning person & she knew that so we wouldn't have full conversations till about 9:30 AMish (Boy did I miss her when my new bubbly co-worker started.) We worker together now & I love it. She always helps with the days off. Lynn is always thinking about others.
Telesia Otukolo

Ohhhh my liddo brother aka son! Wishes she was married to Juni of Rose Park. lol Where to begin with her? Well I remember when we were little I couldn't stand her! What did I do to deserve such an annoying little sister!? lol Now that I think of it, it was probably because she stole all the attention that was supposed to be mine! lmbo Now I do everything with her! When I get something to eat I have to see if she's hungry. Or when were at the mall I have to buy her something as well. She isn't the best listener but I still tell her everything. She is the type that don't know what to say when I'm crying or is texting when I'm telling her how cool my date was. Yet she expects me to listen to her boring stories. She is my best friend & I couldn't be any happier with that. 
Lynda Marie

My wannabe grown baby sister. This girl kills me sometimes. Always up to something or giving attitude where it's not needed. She acts just like me & Sia & that is not good. lol She yells "wait!" to my mom or calls everyone annoying or fat girl! lol But she is smart & she loves to share. She is willing to help IF she is in a good mood. She drives me crazy but I still love her(:

All I'm trying to say is, we don't have perfect relationships with each other but I can not picture my life without these people. I will miss both the annoying & great qualities each one of my brothers and sisters have.


  1. I was expecting a seperate post from Pulu, but it's cool! lmbo jk hahaha Nancy this is soo sweet, how bout Pulu cried when I read your post about your mom!!! CUHRAZZY huh! He never cries, awwww you're so sweet. We are gonna miss you MORE! Love you and your humility, and your example of repentance, and persistence, and most of all unconditional love. Nancy is the kindest person foreal. She will be so mad, hate you, and then when you are down in the dumps will be the first to help u up. That's the kinda person you are and we are grateful to have you in our lives! XOXO sister! :)
