Our Honeymoon in Kauai Last Days




As our last few days in Hawaii came to an end, we decided to just explore the town and really relax before we headed back home. We had such a great time we were sad to see it coming to an end.

Oh and I decided to chop all my hair off. No big deal. 

Last picture with long hair!

I have been wanting to cut my hair short for like ever and I am so glad I did it. Hair grows back so one day I might have my long hair back but I'm loving the short sassy hair. And the husband captured it all on camera. I think because he secretly thought I was going to actually cry.



8 inches of hair right there!



Husband loving the hair!

Dinner with Mai Tais



Sunrise

Why was I up at sunrise on my honeymoon you might ask. Well, let's just say I might have had a horrific nightmare about a certain fur baby. I'm talking gruesome and mild panic attack. It was hard to go back to sleep. Is this what it's like to be away from your children?!





One of our drives








We had heard all about this Puka-Dog, before we left for Hawaii and from many locals while we were in Hawaii. So it was a must for us to visit. As you can see, we waited in quite a long line that I had to ask for a cup of water to cool me down before I had a mild heat stroke.

Puka Dog as seen on the Travel Channel!

Last dinner in Hawaii


Followed by a sunset stroll on the beach


Even though it's blurry, I really like this one




Sad face, we are leaving

Happy face to see Lily

Flight delayed 2 hours, airport sushi!

Our honeymoon was absolutely fantastic and once in a lifetime trip. Hawaii was where I wanted to go and it was my dream honeymoon and it was everything I could have asked for.

People might ask why we went to Hawaii if we didn't snorkel or scuba or zip line...which btw we discovered we aren't huge ocean people..and I will just say, Have you been to Hawaii ;)

Where am I coasting to?


Ever feel like you are just coasting along?


I wish I was coasting here

The days just keep going by and the same thing happens every single day and you are just butting your head at the ceiling trying to get out of this never ending flow.

It seems I have gotten myself in the awful, peace less flow and I need to get out of it.

My days consist of going to a job that is slowly but surely eating me alive 

Why yes, I am educated and smart, you ungrateful human being of a person.

 Then I come home to an apartment that never seems to be clean or organized. What's that about?


Maybe that's why..

My days off are grocery shopping, cleaning. Grocery shopping, laundry. Cleaning, organizing. 
Even though this sounds like the MILF life I desire, I assure you, it is not even close.

And my weekends are also spent at the previous job responsible for eating me alive. 

So husband, how are you enjoying your night out with all our friends wifeless?

Does this sound like a fun way to live? No, it's not. I am at the point where I want to give my two weeks notice, throw all the stuff away in our apartment and move with my husband across the country. 



Is that too much to ask?

Yea, but that's not real life, Krista.

Oh, well in that case...

I still want to throw everything away and get brand new things and hire a maid and professional organizer to make it look pretty so I can stop spending 80% of my time organizing and cleaning. 

I don't have time to even write a well meaning blog post because I look around and see everything I should and need to be doing. Or my nice husband reminds me ;) 

I want to get out of this flow. I want to get rid of everything that is cluttering my life. And I want to get back to having good blog posts and writing. I truly miss it. Who wants cleaning as their hobby?

Goals for August:
Come up with a game plan to get a new job (online courses. quitting?)
 Throw away at least 40% of my storage unit (new things are always better anyway for our future house)
Put our wedding album together to have something pretty to look at on bad days

And you are welcome for the most random, all over the place blog post. 


If this post scared you, please come back soon anyways because I have been asked to review some wine glasses and you know where the best blog posts come from , am I right?

Our Honeymoon in Kauai Day 5: Sunset Cruise


It seems I skipped our dinner on Day 4's post, so just a quick recap on that. We traveled to DUke's restaurant, since everyone seemed to be talking about it and recommending it.


View during dinner

Pineapple drink!



We did it.

This was the best dessert







Back to our Friday, the best kind. A sunset cruise up the Napali coast. We popped in our Dramomine and headed out to the boat. Unfortunately, the winds were too strong so the boat was unable to go fully along the beautiful coast but we still had a great time.








THESE drinks, a Sneaky Teaky. And they were sneaky alright. Especially when I stepped off the boat later in the night...

It was as good as it looks!



Bliss.



Sunset

Nothing beats a Hawaiian sunset.
