I took the live wire mentioned above and ran it back inside the interior of the car to a toggle switch (from the Source aka Radio Shack). I then ran this switched power to the headlight area to power the halos. Now if I leave the toggle switch in the 'on' position, the halos light up with ignition. I'll leave it this way to serve as my DRLs since my headlights don't come on unless I use the headlight switch. In the event I want to go stealth, I can turn the halos off with the switch.
When I ran the switched power to the halos, I followed the stock wiring out of the fusebox (see diagram).
