I'm Back, I'm Tan & I have pictures of Hawaii!

We are back from our all-too-short trip to Maui! We had a blast but are so completely exhausted. Do you ever feel like you need another vacation just to re-coop from the vacation you just got back from? That's how I feel. 

Hawaii was never a place I wanted to go, and it was pretty much exactly what I thought it would be, but it was so much fun. Don't get me wrong, driving to the tops of the volcano and looking down was gorgeous, but the water was just, well, eh. I did like it MUCH better than our trip to Jamaica on our honeymoon. We were only offered drugs once and I felt completely safe, unlike in Jamaica. I did not like Jamaica at all. I did like Hawaii though. There were some really beautiful views from almost everywhere you went. The resort we stayed at had the best staff and we had an amazing view from our suite. That's right, our suite! Hawaii has the prettiest sunsets I've ever seen.

Ok, I know none of you want to hear from me as much as you want to see photos, so here they are, however, let me preface this by saying: I know I need to hit the gym. Leave me alone.

This was the night of our anniversary at the Feast of Lele Luau
This is the dessert they prepared for us. 
We drove around the island and found this fresh-water area that had a gorgeous waterfall. See the rope swing in the background? I definitely swung from it!
This is Arid Chappell. He is a designer and is co-owner of Maggie Columbe. I bought a gorgeous dress from their shop. They were featured in Modern Luxury Hawaii last month.
Marking our one-year anniversary!

We also ate our cake. I loved our wedding cake. It was so simple and so delicious the first time around and, as gross as it may sound, wasn't horrible to eat now. Other than the fact that I was aware I was eating one-year-old cake.  Well, today marks day 2 of year 2! Tomorrow I'll post some scenic photos from Hawaii so you can see how beautiful it is for yourself!

(I wanted to post more pictures but my stupid wireless internet, you know, that I'm "borrowing" from my neighbor is being a pain!)

I'm dying to go to Hawaii! Looks like you guys had an amazing anniversary trip! (Happy Anniversary by the way!).

Thanks for sharing the pics!

Casey said...

You should tell your neighbor to get his internet together. Gees :)

Love the pics, it looks like so much fun. And you look great! I totally understand about needing a break when you get back. Especially over here when we go somewhere we want to see everything. Now we plan a day or two when we get back before we have to go back to work.

Do you want me to do a blog design for you? Consider it my wedding present :)

Melissa said...

That picture with your names in the sand looks familiar...I did that on our honeymoon! Anyways, can't wait to see the rest of the pictures. And, yes, I totally hate UNpacking after a trip and getting back to reality when you are already exhausted from your trip.

Oh, and ya, I wrote a blog about our cake when you were gone, I'm hoping ours still tastes good like yours did!

Your pictures look great! I've never really wanted to go to Hawaii either (more of a Florida or Island girl), but now that I've seen these, I've changed my mind!

Sarah Hargis said...

You look beautiful and NOT like you need to go to the gym. We loved Hawaii. Gosh, it's been 5 years since we were there. Time to go back!

Lindsey said...

Ohhh these pics are fab and make me miss Hawaii so much!!!

Ashley said...

Wow! What a great trip. I'm glad you had a great time. Happy Anniversary!!

We got back from Mexico about 3 weeks ago and I feel like I am just now getting caught up with everything. You'll get there!! But vacations can be a bit draining. Ironic, huh?

We were going to do Jamaica this year, but Hawaii prices have been so low! So this morning we booked a trip to Oahu. I heard many pros and cons about Maui and Oahu, but Oahu was our best deal. I've heard it's really busy, but it is okay as long as you drive to a beach away from the city.

And you look great in your pics!

Very jealous of all the sun, all the tans, and all that yummy FOOOOD. (Of course, are you surprised?)

Tasha said...

Happy Anniversary! Your pictures are beautiful and you definitely do NOT need to hit the gym! My husband and I went to Oahu for our honeymoon and loved it. Hawaii is paradise!
