The Very Last Hawaii Post


Bubba's. If you are ever in Kauai, eat here. They have the best double cheeseburgers. Not like I ever ate one. Twice.

It's been less than a month since we've been back from Kauai and I already miss her terribly. 

I miss 10 a.m. at the pool bar, ordering a double rum and diet and having the bartender fist bump me followed by a "live aloha girl!" 

I miss the nanny getting up with my kids in the morning so I could sleep off the 10 a.m. drinks.

I miss not brushing my hair for an entire seven days. See, I forgot to pack a brush and the nanny forgot to pack a brush, both of us figuring that the other probably remembered one. Seven days, no brush. Nada. It was kind of liberating, actually. Maybe next time I'll forget to pack underwear...

I miss waking up with sand in my bed. Because sand in my bed meant I was up to no good the night before.

I miss vodka pineapple for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Who am I kidding. I have vodka pineapple for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. 'Tis the life of a stay-at-home blogger I guess...

And for this very last post on Hawaii (at least until we return in T-minus less than 365 days), I leave you with an excursion we did on the last day of our trip. 

A catamaran tour on the Na Pali Coast.

lunch at a seafood shack before heading out

he was in time out

 holding hands. ohmahgah

The free mai tais weren't even the best part. No, the best part was that both my kids fell asleep on the catamaran, at the same time. A to the mai tai Men! You mothers out there of two or more know what I'm sayin'. 

And sigh.

Vacation: Over.

Back to the daily grind of sleeping in, day drinking and copious tivo'd episodes of Dr. Phil.

I need a vacation.


  1. i would miss that too, i just miss the beach in general. your family is beautiful!

  2. I love how you refer to your sister as the nanny, that's awesome!

    Oh and I need your boobs, I could never wear a strapless bikini top and I love that sparkle cover up. I need straps to hold this shit more baby and then boob job here I come. I'm no pervert, just doing research. My husband tries to use that line too.

  3. OHMAGAH to the handholding is right! SO freaking adorable! I will be your nanny anytime you pick. Dane and I toured the NaPali Coast in August and it was so beautiful!

  4. The hand holding was absolutely adorable! And your vacation looks pretty heavenly, definitely makes me want to go to the beach.

  5. Sooooo sad the Hawaii posts are over!!! We have 115 days until we are in Hawaii and I cannot effing wait!!!

  6. OMG your babies are TOO handsome. i can't even handle it.

  7. This seriously looks like a blast!

  8. I have the very same tree house rules.

  9. hot damn this makes me miss hawaii SO MUCH! specifically, the ten am umbrella drinks and the no judgments (;

    and that sunset picture you took?! umm... it's just gorgeous.

  10. Did you really just say "the free mai tais weren't even the best part?"... Further proof I'm just not cut out for the whole "mom" thing.

  11. My husband and I just started thinking about our next trip. All of these pictures are making me want to visit Kauai!

  12. Oh my goodness, seeing your boys holding hands not only made me tear up but made me want another baby - NOW :) As for the post of little man in time out - does time out work for you? I have a 3 year old and she is quite a handful and just walks out of timeout when we put her there - any suggestions? Thanks!

  13. your vacation photos always leave me wanting to visit hawaii - sigh - maybe one day...

  14. Colt's expression!!! i died. and they're holding hands.

  15. Lose the binky - it will make his teeth look even more screwed up than they already do. How many vodka lunches did you have the day your poor baby knocked his teeth out?

  16. Ah the boys holding hands!! Melts my heart. Love your sparkly dress!

  17. see what hawaii does for families?!! Love all the pics. We're Kauia goers as well- May can't come soon enough!
