Wednesday Wonderings

Good Morning!!!!!!

I spent most of the weekend relaxing and feeling down about my ex who i hung out with Friday night. But i got over it. I spent the weekend on the couch relaxing and bindged on scandal, i am now halfway through season 3.

image

I opened one of my small coffee samples i bought from Hawaii to try this weekend……freaking delicious!!!!!

image

I hung some fun motivational quotes in my cubicle to keep motivation all day long

image

image

image

I will continue to add to it.

Tuesday i had a good strength workout and i am a little sore today. This morning i did my swim workout, i am sure as the day goes on i will get more sore hahaha.

image

I 💗 You Starbucks

image

Not all the way awake……have a happy hump day!!

Book Review**A Glimpse of Evil

image

Here is super fun series that is a very easy read. You don’t even have to read them in order if you don’t want to. I tend to just grab whatever one sounds like i haven’t read it. I think initially i read the 2nd or 3rd one first.

It is a cute story about a psychic who helps the policed or her friend who is a private eye solve cases. She gets herself in some dangerous situations along the way.

A great beach read or something to read between intense books.  

Hawaii day 5 and heading home

By day 5 i needed to relax so while the girls went out i thoroughly enjoyed having the condo to myself and reading pretty much all day.

image

image

I took a break from reading to go for a run on the lovely overcast day with some drizzle coming down.

image

And yes when i say lovely, i mean lovely. The drizzling helped a bit with the temperature.
Though the humiditing mixed with the drizzling led to me dripping sweat.

image

A lot of it.

After running i enjoyed a delicious simple lunch

image

image

Then i contined to read for the rest of the day until the girls got back and we all went to dinner at Duke’s. I had Ahmazing fish tacos!!!

Today was pretty much all traveling. A cab picked me up at 9:45. It took me an hour to get through security, Hawaii’s airport is packed.

Then i spent 5 hours in a plan then a $50 cab ride later i was sitting on my porch waiting for my roommates dad to let me in with the spare key since i somehow didn’t pack mine.

And now i am finally in my own bed so excited to go to sleep.

Goodnight!

How was your weekend?

Hawaii day 4

We got up sort of early again and hit Pearl Harbor.

image

It was definitely a moving experience

image

image

image

My souvenir was a book 😌
After Pearl Harbor we went to a local coffee farm.

image

image

image

They had soooo many different coffee flavors it was insane!! Yes i bought several samples lol

image

After coffee was had it was time to see where the coffee came from!

image

image

First comes the flour

image

Then green berries

image

Then red ‘cherries’

After the coffee farm it was Luau time!!

image

image

The pig.

image

The dancing and entertainment was great but i have to admit the food was lacking for me. Being as i am not eating meat they had 1 fish option and it left a lot to be desired in my opinion. But it was still a great night!

Now for a dilemma, i feel like we have been going going going since we got here, which i understand and enjoy, you want to get in everything you can while you are here. On the other hand to me part of a vacation is taking some time to relax from our hectic everyday lives amd i feel like we haven’t done that and don’t plan to.

Tomorrow is my last full day in Hawaii and the plan for the girls is hitting up a macadamian nut farm, possibly snorkelling then hanging out at a beach and maybe surfing. Those things could be fun but are nothing that i am dying to do. So do i stay at the condo tomorrow and relax or go out with them?

Part of me feels like if i don’t go out with them i am wasting the day but i also feel like I’m going to be exhausted for work and life when i get back if i don’t take the time to rest. Desicions, decisions.

What would you do?

What does your perfect vacation look like?

Hawaii day 3

We got up early to go hiking.

Hawaii day 2

Day 2 in Hawaii started off with a 2 mile run.

Then off to the dole pineapple plantation.
image

image
image

image
It took us an hour to get through this crazy maze. And after that something cold was necessary.
image

Pineapple whip, it was pretty delicious.

Next we went to the North Shore and walked around.
image
image

Then we hit some cute little shops and of course i got coffee! Lol
image

image

The day ended with some delicious fresh pineapple on my pizza
image

And a twilight walk on the beach where we attempted to see turtles but they weren’t there.

Traveling Tuesday!!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!!

I was up before the sun on my way to the airport to fly to Hawaii!!!

It is a 5 hour flight…….i haven’t been on a flight that long in many years. I got bored and restless about halfway through. My garmin told me to move twice while on the flight lol.

We went down to the water for the sunset then walked to a sports bar that had Tuesday taco night.

I peeled the breading off my 2nd taco.
