I Die

In my last post I talked about this website, where I like to go when I'm bored and give myself makeovers. Well after I posted it I decided to have some fun and makeover Rowan!


Ombre is so hot right now.

About Me

-I love period movies
-My favorite candy bars are Whatchamacallits & Zeros 
-I love giving people nicknames
-When I'm feeling uninspired to blog I change the desktop picture on my computer. It's a small change but it's refreshing when you walk into your office to something new.
-I love old people. They have the best stories.
-When I'm bored I love to go to this website and give myself different/funny makeovers. It's ridiculous how much fun I have doing this. Also? You're welcome for sharing this website with you... you'll be addicted in no time.
-I love zodiac stuff
-I hate olives
-I'm already 99% sure what all our future kids' names will be... first and middle.
-I used to be a vodka girl all the way, but now I'm pretty hooked on rum & cokes.
-I can't stand it when, in scary movies, the victim is running as fast as they can and the bad guy is only walking after them but somehow still manage to keep up. SO DUMB.
-I won a fishing tournament when I was a kid.
-D and I have been together for a total of 3 years in August and the longest we've ever been apart is one day.
-One of my all time favorite tv shows is Cougar Town. Don't let the name fool you. It's hilarious.
-If I'm ever famous, some extremely hideous pictures of me from high school are sure to surface.. haha
-I think southern accents are adorable
-I want to go to London for our 3 year wedding anniversary
-I hate when people call to ask me for directions when they can goole map it. It's really not that hard people.
-This is one of my all time favorite websites. It's free and has pretty much any and every show you'd want to watch online. You can only watch 72 mins at a time (don't ask me why) but you only have to wait half an hour before you can start watching again. This is how I catch up on all my HBO shows the day after they air. Amazing.
-The most embarrassing day of my life was the first time I tried to snowboard. 'Nough said.
-Some of my fondest memories are of the summers we spent at my grandparents' house playing kick ball in the street with the neighbor kids during the day and catching fireflies in mason jars at night.
-When I was younger I was obsessed with driving a white jeep like Cher did in Clueless
-Every time I see an episode of Hoarders I want to get rid of half of the stuff in my house
-I think Snoop Dogg is the shizzle
-I used to go through phases where I'd listen to the same band over and over again for months before moving on to something else. Now I love the randomness of Pandora.
-I still have my song writing notebooks from when I was 14. They are beyond hilarious to read through
-I love Dollywood.. and Dolly Parton
-I used to have pets named Mele, Hoku, Martini, Hendrix, Ziggy and Kingston
-My newest obsession is putting on a cold gel eye mask for 20 mins at night 
-I think Angelina Jolie is highly overrated
-I'm totally Team Edward
-I hate cooking. Sorry D.

Maui Trip

We're back! We actually got back yesterday but I was way too pooped to bust out this image heavy post. 
Our Maui trip may have been short, but it was gorgeous and fun and a mini-trip to remember. 
We arrived at 6pm and by the time we got Rowan's car seat from the baggage claim, picked up our rental car, and got on the road for our 30-40 min drive, we decided to skip checking into our hotel until later and headed straight over to see Erin, Mike, Noah and Logan at their hotel. We had dinner at one of the nearby hotel restaurants, had pina colada's and lava flows, played with our kiddos and had a great night. I pretty much love them even more now and it makes me really sad that we don't live closer. I didn't take very many pictures (and some are out of focus, oops!) because I kept thinking "we'll take more later when we leave the restaurant" but then we were hurrying back to our car because I left Rowan's diapers in our luggage in the trunk (I know, mom fail!) and I was pretty distracted from my photo duties.
I'm really happy they let us interrupt their family vacation and took the time to have dinner with us. They're seriously lovely people and I think we may just have to take a trip to Alaska sometime in the future. 
The next morning we finally got to see our hotel since we had checked in so late the night before and didn't even realize how beautiful it was. The doors were still key locked, the view of the mountains from our room, the columns of the hotel, the pool right next to the beach... it was beautiful.
After taking a quick look around we headed out onto Front Street in Lahaina and checked out the touristy shops before ending up in Starbucks... mama's gotta get her coffee fix!
We decided we didn't want to rush to make it to our 2pm flight so we changed it to a few hours later, walked around some more and had lunch at Cool Cat Cafe before heading back to our hotel pool. 
It was a great trip and Rowan's now been to 3 Hawaiian islands(that's including here on Oahu of course) before 9 months! We have another trip coming up in August to the mainland and, although I'm pretty terrified of flying, I'm grateful we have the means to travel and show Rowan a little bit of the world.
