Maui- Day 4, 5 & 6

Sorry for clumping these all together. Maui was so relaxing and I had absolutely no desire to sit on my computer and type so here you get it all at once..

Day 4 (Friday) - After breakfast we drove to Wialea. It was about 40 min away from where we were staying in Kaanapali. We spent some time at the Grand Wailea which is a gorgeous resort. For those of you who watched Jon & Kate plus 8, it's where they stayed and renewed their vows last summer. It was fun to see other parts of the island. There is so much to do! We spent the rest of the day doing the usual.... floating in the waves, swimming in the pool and soaking in the Hawaiian sun. Dinner was the best. We went to Lahina and ate at Kimo's. We had the best fish dinner and were blessed with the most beautiful sunset. For dessert we got 3 Hula Pies and as you can see from the pictures, we were big fans! Lahina is such a fun old fishing town...lots of cute shops too! A few friends came over to our condo after dinner to do cigars and man things and I got to go to bed early! None the less, it was a good day! :)


Day 5 (Saturday) - Woke up to a beautiful sunrise, went for a walk on the beach with some fresh kona coffee, did some shopping at Whaler's Village with mom, floated in the waves, saw lots of friends and familiar faces, husband went scuba diving in caves with Jack, husband and dad went snorkeling with the sea turtles, had a wonderful dinner at Leilanis on the beach, did some last minute shopping, had a sleep over with the whole family, made some embarrassing videos that my sister put on facebook (i look like a whale), laughed lots and made memories to last a lifetime. Oh, and our neighbors welcomed their son Aiden! Can hardly wait to meet him!



Day 6 (Sunday) - Day of departure is always depressing. All of us could have stayed longer but it was time to get back to reality. We went in the ocean one last time and soaked in the last bit of sunshine before it was time to head back to the mainland. This trip was such a blessing to Chris and I. It was absolute perfect timing and we are so thankful that we had this time away together and with my family. Everything about it was wonderful. Chris is now in love with Hawaii (how could you not be?) and we all decided that Maui is definitely our favorite island. Can't wait to go back!!!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
