5 On Friday

Whew! This week was a doozy – anyone else? I just kept asking myself, how is it only X day? Or X time? It seemed like everything was moving in slow motion, which would have been great if I felt like I was accomplishing a ton of things, but alas – I don’t even feel like I did a ton. Oh well – there’s always next week, am I right? Here’s to a relaxing weekend, everyone!

Okay, so on to the good stuff…5 on Friday! I look forward to these posts, because it’s always a mish mash of what I’m loving, finds of the week or something that made me laugh. Let’s get right to it.

1. I was recently featured over on Verbal Gold Blog for my Ultimate List of Activities here on Oahu. If you’re planning a trip, you should totally check it out!

2. Who needs a good brunch drink recipe? I got you. I stumbled upon this Elderflower Grapefruit Mimosa recipe and I haven’t been able to stop drooling. How amazing does this look?! Recipe here.

3. I have been having some serious customer service issues lately (one rep told me they only shipped things to the United States…face palm), but I have to take some time to thank Delta for going above and beyond. I recently booked a trip to NY for my best friend’s wedding this fall and a week after booking, I got an alert that my recently booked flight now had FIVE connections. What in the what..?! Worse, it now arrived much later than I had booked. I reached out and they responded immediately, gave me options, researched new ways to get me there on time and did it all in a friendly manner. In a day and age where customer service seems to be flying out the window – bravo, Delta!

4. Huge shoutout to everyone who wrote me after I hit publish on my diet and exercise update post. YOU ALL are the real inspiration! I was blown away by how many of you said you were also transforming your lives and body, sent update photos, said you were starting your own journey and/or were inspired by mine. Blogging and social media can often be a weird mix of putting yourself out there and also trying to be genuine, honest and build a community. It’s safe to say that hearing from all of you was the best part of my week.

5. Our banana trees are raining bananas, people. RAINING. I think we have about 100 we haven’t even cut down from the tree yet and I’m drowning in all things banana. So tell me – what are your favorite banana recipes? I’ve got banana bread and acai bowls covered for the next 456 years, but I need something new to add to my banana repertoire. Also, how many times can I say banana in one paragraph? 😉

Happy weekend, all!

  • Yum! A grapefruit mimosa is exactly what’s calling my name this weekend.

    • Kait

      I think it’s calling my name, too! 😉 Happy weekend! XO

  • Raining bananas?!?! This sounds amazing – yet another thing I am highly jealous of your Hawaii existence for. We go through a ton of bananas at our house. Smoothies are a hit, but Hendrik also really loves those banana + egg pancakes that you can easily find on Pinterest.

    • Kait

      Raining indeed. Actually more like a monsoon! At one point this week we cut down 70 bananas and that was only from 2 bushels! It’s insanity. We have two more bushels to cut down and I fear we are going to still be eating these bananas when the next bushels are ripe 🙁 Care to come visit?! I’ll make Hen all the pancakes he can eat!

  • OMG so envious of your banana tree! I would make sooo many smoothies 😉 Those mimosas sound delicious and look even better, too! Have a great weekend.

      Is it possible to be burnt out on smoothies?! If so, I’m almost there. I just feel like I have them all the time. I’m trying to figure out if there’s a way to make a ton of banana bread loaves and freeze them for when I need a quick treat for an occasion. Is that frowned upon?! LOL

  • I would LOVE a banana tree, how awesome! I would love that 🙂 When we lived in California, we had a lemon tree and it was amazing!

    • Kait

      We have lemons and limes too! You just reminded me that I need to go outside and see if any have dropped…weekend lemonade! 🙂

  • I wish I had banana trees!
