Friday Favorites: 2/21/14–Maui

Happy Friday!! Although, I am super sad because today is our last day here. . . we fly out tonight! But, I am ready to make the most of our last day!

So, here are a few of my favorites from this week. . .

Drinks with a view. ..


Whale watching. . .


which actually turned out terribly because I was a super dumb bunny and was using Scott’s phone to take pictures (we only brought our iPhones for cameras) and was sitting on the side of the boat, and yup, dropped it into the ocean. Oh man, I still can’t believe I did that.


Thankfully, I married the MOST understanding husband ever and he has been beyond wonderful about it. So, I guess Scott is my most favorite this week for being so wonderful no matter what we are dealing with. Love you honey!!

Running. . . 4 miles each day = great conversation and lots of sweating –> it’s HOT here in Hawaii.


Vacationing with friends = having the BEST time with Peggy and Brian!


Nice dinner at Lahaina Grill with Scott <—beef carpaccio = amazing.


This Valentine’s Day Card from Aunt Laura to Luke:


Pictures from Grandma of Lukie having a great time while we are gone. . .

Those cheeks! And the fact that he loves wearing his hat inside.


Building a fort with Aunt Laura and then having dinner in it. Note Abby sitting right outside the fort in case something rolls out. . .


Shoveling with Grandpa. And Abby standing in the middle of the street. . .


What was your favorite thing from this week? Any big plans for the weekend? We are flying out (overnight flight – boo) tonight. Celebrating Laura’s birthday tomorrow night and then Sunday = unpacking, laundry and lots of snuggles with Luke <—I miss that boy!

As usual, please link up with your Friday post!! Any post is welcome. Smile

Spreading the link love by linking up with Heather, Claire, and Darci again this week.

    Love the pictures from Hawaii! I had foot surgery yesterday and it makes me try to imagine I’m on a beach rather than propped up on the couch haha!

  2. Oh no! Bummer about Scott’s phone :/ I guess you can only be a little mad about it since you are in Maui and don’t have time to be upset, right?! Loved following your vacation and pictures!

  3. I made it to the linkup! Oh man, I can’t believe you dropped the phone in the ocean! Talk about a biggest fear!

    Safe travels home!

    P.S., it’s cold here :).

    My favorites of this week – surviving and nailing three body pumps in a row and I did not back down on weight! Of course I paid for it last night and got in a huge power nap since the Y closed and they postponed LiveStrong! Looking forward to the weekend of cooking, running and practicing body pump 89! Travel safe!

  5. You’re hair is down! I love it! How cool that you went whale watching (even though you lost a phone in the midst of it!). What a sweet husband you have. It was obviously an accident so what can you do! Dana and I tried going whale watching in Canada, but the waters were too choppy so they had to cancel and instead we went bear watching. I’m so glad you had such a great time in Hawaii!

  6. Whale watching- how majestic! Dropping the phone sounds like something I’ve done.

    Oh my gosh I know running in anything above like 50 is too hot for me. Hawaii though would be worth every ounce of sweat!

  7. So jealous of your trip (still)! We are buried in snow today! On a happy note, all this snow means no school today. Yay for a three day weekend!

      woo hoo – 3 day weekend!! Enjoy. I am actually looking forward to all the snow when we get back.. . *as long as the roads are plowed.

  8. I am so happy for you that you got to take this amazing trip! And I am equally as happy that Scott was so understanding about his phone 🙂 Have a safe trip back home. I am sure that Luke will be SO excited to see you!

  9. Aww, such a bummer about the phone! I hate when that stuff happens. Good thing you have a good hubby. 🙂

    I barely recognized you with your hair down! Love it. 🙂

  10. Between your trip & Becky’s, I’ve got major vacation envy this week! 😉 so glad you guys are having fun! & Scott is a gem…Dave & I both are sort of married to our phones (major flaw) so I’m not sure how either of us would have taken that…lol

    & on that long flight, just think of Luke’s cute little face & Abbys tail wagging – you’ll get to see both SOON! The only 2 things that make Hawaii worth leaving, right?

  12. bummer about the phone:(
    i remember running in Hawaii was somehow twice as hard as running at home. the air/climate was so different it took all i had to run my usual distances. i wonder if i lived there if it would get any easier. dream.
    you missed quite a bit of snow yesterday. I’m hoping the big snowfalls are done for the year now.

  13. OMG poor you and Scott’s phone! It happens to the best of us… did I ever tell you the time I dropped my phone in the crevasses of San Diego?? Yup, that happened.

    Can’t wait to see you in March, lady!! xoxo
