Remember when I went to Hawaii?

Like a month ago? With my bff Lindsey?

I finally got around to making a video of our antics during that week.

I know it's a wee bit late, but if you watch it, it will totally be worth your while.

At least that is in my never-to-be-humble opinion. 

But first, a few things I learned about that glorious week in Hawaii, via watching the below video:

1. My ass looks huge from behind

2. My kids annoy my friends just as much as they annoy me

3. My sons are beach babes at heart

4. Breakfast just tastes better when you can reach out and touch the ocean

5. On that note, tropical drinks taste better when they are consumed on an actual beach

6. .... and with an umbrella stuck in them. Preferably hot pink ones.

7. Never, ever, ever show someone my "special laugh" if I want them to ever associate with me again

8. It is totally worth it to splurge on a poolside cabana

9. Listening to live music whilst sipping on a cocktail after the kids have gone to bed is quite possibly the closest to God you will ever get

10. You've never tasted a real pineapple 'til you've had one in Hawaii

11. My boob job was totally worth it

12. And finally, Lindsey was the most awesomest aunt my boys never knew they were missing

Oh, two more things.



ps. Don't forget! Tomorrow is the one-time link-up for "Who Is Your Doppelgänger!"

  6. I don't think drinking Longboard qualifies as a surf lesson! On another note, looks like fun. I definitely need some sun!!

  7. Your special laugh had me just about crying at my desk. HA! Colt reminds me so much of my little one Jack. Maybe its because he likes to show people where their nose is just before giving a nice tap on the head. Love those boys!!!
