Anyone who has been to or lived in Hawaii knows the pain of going through withdrawals after your trip. Every time I come back from visiting home I instantly miss the beach, the food, and the simple way of living there. I mean let's face it, Utah and Hawaii are pretty much polar opposites. Humidity vs. Dryness. Sea vs. Mountains. Beach vs. Desert. Fresh fruit vs. Fast food. Don't get me wrong, over the years I've come to really love Utah (something I never thought I'd do), but everyone knows there is something about home that holds a special place in your heart.

Anyway, because I'm going through withdrawals, what better way to cope than to wear a t-shirt with all my favorite things about the beach! This Lauren James shirt is so comfy and cute, and it allows me to wear a piece of home everywhere I go. Wearing it makes me even more excited for all the fun summer activities coming our way! Yay!

I hope everyone has a great week!
If you're struggling just imagine yourself on a beach, soaking up the sun and sipping on a bevvy.

May the Fourth be with you.


My blog turns TWO today!

Friday, May 1, 2015

I'm pretty lame.
I almost totally forgot that today is my blog's birthday.

With all the traveling and catching up with life I've been doing this week I completely spaced that May 1st was THIS Friday. Didn't April JUST begin? My goodness. It wasn't until Wednesday when I realized what day it was and that I hadn't done anything special to commemorate Year 2. So I'm sorry little bloggy. Maybe I'll go get a cupcake today and celebrate. Yes. I think I will do that.

Also, I really wanted to put together a "Things I Learned in Year 2 of Blogging" post but obviously I didn't have time to get around to that sooooo I'm going to post that sometime next week. As long as it's posted within a week of the special day it's not old news, right?

Also ALSO, Happy Anniversary to my adorable parents! Ironically I did NOT forget that today is their wedding anniversary even though it falls on the same day as my blog's birthday. I'm weird like that. At least I remembered the more important event though, rightttt? (:

Have a fun weekend friends!
Connor and I are watching The Avengers tonight at the new fancy theater in Vineyard so I'm stooooooked.

I'm back from Hawaii!!

I made it just in time to celebrate Connor's birthday on Tuesday and boy am I jet laggggggggged. Hawaii is only a four hour time difference from here but when you spend the whole day (and night) traveling and sitting on planes, it really takes it out of you. Not to mention I took the red eye back to the mainland and I'm extremely bad at sleeping on planes so I went 48 hours with no sleep from Monday to Tuesday.

Tuesday was a jam-packed day (in a good way) from the moment I stepped off the plane! Since it was Connor's special day, we ate lunch at our favorite restaurant in Lehi, I surprised him with a couples massage (which was AMAZING after a 5-hour plane ride btw), met with some friends for dinner at Tucanos, and had a little shindig with ice cream cake with even more friends back at our apartment. It's pretty safe to say that I am completely wrecked (physically and mentally) and I'll be taking the rest of this week to recover from the craziness.

Speaking of crazy, how are we liking my flowers on flowers on flowers outfit today? I mean, I figured I already had flowers on my dress, I had to add the floral crown to complete the look. If only I had floral printed heels, right? (no just kidding, that would be a mile past too much) I know florals for Spring are super overrated but I can't help fill my wardrobe with floral dresses, floral tops, and floral everything whenever warm weather starts creeping around! Before we know it it'll be swimsuit season and Summer will be in full swing! Can't wait!

Hope you've all been having an amazing week!

Yesterday I woke up at 11am so I'm shooting to wake up by 10am today.
Baby steps guys, baby steps.
