aloha, pretzelies, and some friday faves

{image by one of my new favorite photographers, lupen grainne}

before i get in to this post, how about a little jack for your friday? i love music. a lot. so sometimes i’ll give you a little option to listen along with me and get in a happy mood, ok? don’t worry, i won’t force it on you - i’ll just leave the little box here and if you want to press play, you can :)

ok back to the post. happy friday! seriously - happppppy friday! anyone else feeling it today? i have been cleaning, email-responding, prepping and packing like crazy for our upcoming trip to hawaii (we went to maui for our honeymoon but are trying a different island this time!). i leave on sunday and pat will arrive on monday, but don’t feel too bad for him - he’s in indianapolis right now enjoying the superbowl festivities! pat’s brother works for the NFL and invites one of his family members to go to the big game with him every year - being the youngest of 6, pat finally got the invite this year and what better game to watch than the giants vs. the patriots? in my opinion, there’s nothing better than a great NY vs. Boston rivalry - i love it! i don’t want to post who i’m cheering for because i’m always superstitious that i’ll jinx the team, but i WILL say i am NOT cheering for the team that rhymes with Matriots. in fact, i kind of can’t stand them. moving on…

thanks to this little helper, i’ve been cleaning out all my old bathing suits to make room for the new ones i forgot to order on time. translation: packing all of them with me :)

oh, and what road trip is complete without pretzelies? i think the valentines colors make them taste better, too.

here are my favorite finds this week:

speaking of nothing to do with hawaii or the superbowl, i got lost in lupen grainne‘s blog when i found the picture above for today’s post. go, take a look! she is amazingly inspiring!

naz is coming to san francisco and he’s looking to do some filming - what a great opportunity for local couples!

i want to go to this beach. asap.

i may or may not have waited online for bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce tickets promptly at 10am this morning…and scored tickets, too! yay!

judge me all you want, but this forever 21 skirt is adorable in my opinion.

these are my favorite beach shoes ever.

    I’m super jealous! Have a blast in Kauai! When I went 5 years ago it rained 36 inches in 4 days. Roads were washed out, mudslides, you name it. We spent most of the time in our hotel room watching March Madness. Hoping your visit is 10 times better than mine! :)
