Hi, guys! How’s your week going? I can’t believe it’s already Tuesday afternoon. Monday and this morning totally flew by for me. Holy moly! It’s like they didn’t even happen. Or did they?! I dunno. Anyway, here are some photos from yesterday and today! Q knows how to have a good time! Look at that little smile. So adorable. I taught him all about butterflies (and pug-a-pillars) yesterday. He’s a big fan now. I ran…

Day 2 was a busy one! Breakfast It started with a delicious breakfast at the hotel. I ordered the fresh fruit plate with baked sweet potatoes and sausage on the side as well as a glass of freshly pressed green juice. Simple, delicious, nutritious. After breakfast, the group headed outside to the pool area for a sports medicine session with Ty and Josh. They shared a number of mobility and strengthening exercises, which were specific…

After some fun at the Dole Plantation, Mal and I continued to drive up to the North Shore of Oahu. Our next stop was Hale’iwa, which is the quintessential beach and surf town. We parked our car and wandered around and explored the adorable boutiques, eateries, and art galleries. Every day is a flip flop kind of day in Oahu. Snack We eventually stumbled upon a juice bar, so I popped in to buy a beet,…

After some time at the beach and lunch, Mal and I got picked up at our hotel for a surf lesson on Waikiki Beach with the Hans Hendemann Surf School. I was both excited and nervous to try surfing. Excited because it looked like a lot of fun and it was one of my goals for 2013. I was nervous because I’m not the best swimmer, and I’m really afraid of sharks. Well, my worries…

Good morning and happy February! I can’t believe the first month of the year is already over. Since the new year is moving right along, I thought it would be fun to highlight some of the things I’m looking forward to in 2013 with the help of the alphabet. (Why not, right?) A – Annual party: Our Pig Party and tiny HUGE party were both huge successes, so we’re already thinking about what to plan…

Last night, I climbed into bed, got all comfy and cozy, and then noticed that the door to Mal’s closet was open. Most people wouldn’t care (or even notice), but I needed to close it before I could fall asleep. Otherwise, the monsters/zombies/ghosts hiding in there would get me! Yes, friends, this is just one of my irrational fears from childhood that I still have today. And here are some others: Seeing Bloody Mary in a…

Yesterday’s adventures including paddleboarding! But first, breakfast! Breakfast All this talk about two-ingredient pancakes, I decided to make one myself for breakfast. I topped mine with fresh blueberries and a bunch of scoops of almond butter, but only one (of the many) is pictured. The reason I don’t snap pics of those additional spoonfuls of nut butter is because my plate/bowl is always a mushy mess and it just never looks appetizing in a photo. But, I can assure you…

When I was at the grocery store yesterday morning, I watched two little girls play a game that my sister and I used to call “the floor game.” The goal of “the floor game” was to stay on the colored tiles as long as possible as we accompanied our mom in the grocery store while she shopped. If you stepped on a white tile, you’d lose and get eaten by sharks or something. We never…

Hi, guys! Let’s get right to it. Fun day to recap! Breakfast Our friends Erin and Ping (pug) came to visit bright and early yesterday morning. Erin (and Ping) had already eaten breakfast, so Mal made a couple of bagel egg and cheese sandwiches for us. On the way to our house, Erin offered to pick up Marylou’s for us, so I also enjoyed a delicious Peanut Butter Wonderful Iced Coffee with breakfast. Thanks, Erin!…
