There is nothing quite like a good 3-day weekend to pick you up right off your butt and kind of make you feel whole and happy again. Or maybe that was the tequila, because I drank a lot of margaritas. I don’t really know or care, but I do know I’ll be going back to get another one of these 60 oz. glasses of fun.
Can I just say that the love and support I received last week from all of you in the form of e-mails, texts, comments, flowers, Skype chats, IG love…this girl was completely overwhelmed and blown away. I am so grateful to have such wonderful readers and friends. Thank you all from the very bottom of my heart. One of the best things about pets is their unconditional love and I’m so grateful to have such wonderful memories with my furbaby. Though Maddie can never be replaced, Dane and I are looking forward to adding a pooch to our lives very soon.
Because I was such a basketcase so sad all week, Dane took the entire day off work on Friday and planned it out start to finish. It also happened to be my half birthday and since we’re really into celebrating, we started the day by enjoying breakfast at LuLu’s in downtown Waikiki and watching the first surfers of the day catch some great waves. Dane enjoyed this stuffed French Toast AKA a gluten free nightmare, but look how pretty!
Then we headed to the SPCA to spend a little time playing with puppies. Both heartbreaking and fun, we aren’t exactly in the market for a Pit Bull, so we left empty handed. The rest of the day was spent enjoying the pool and relaxing–a much needed break! We treated ourselves to froyo for dinner. #healthy
Saturday we woke up bright and early to head to the Hawaii State Farm Fair. It was on the opposite side of the island, so it took us awhile to get there and Saturday traffic in Hawaii makes me want to pound my head against a window. Thank goodness the fair was 100% worth it once we got there! There were so many food trucks, animals and local Hawaiian produce.
The pig’s name was Bacon. Let that soak in for a moment 🙁
Saturday night we enjoyed dinner with friends at Monkeypod Kitchen and then headed to our favorite spot, Azul, for some after dinner drinks.
Sunday we slept in and didn’t set an alarm. This gets bolded, because it never happens. Dane and I wake up between 3:30-4:30am Monday through Friday and our idea of “sleeping in” on the weekends is about 7am. We slept until 9:30 and it was so glorious it gets a whole blog paragraph.
The rest of the day was spent running errands, enjoying fresh produce from the Fair and packing Dane’s tough box for deployment. See: horrible. I also cut up my first ever pineapple that we picked fresh, so I guess that kind of makes me a legitimate Hawaiian now, yeah?
How was your weekend?
