Heading out for a getaway to Santa Barbara with my hubby! And ONLY my hubby!

We're about to head out to go up the coast to Santa Barbara for a couple days...JUST MY HUSBAND AND ME! Woohoo!  I can't wait to reconnect with my husband, sleep in and maybe take a nap in the middle of the afternoon! That would be heavenly! While up in Santa Barbara we're staying at the Canary Hotel.

Hula Shake Around the Blogosphere {leave your link!} The “OMG my youngest is TWO!” Edition

Today my pick is....Miss Leah Marley Gray, my baby girl who turns TWO TODAY!!   Two years ago I gave birth to my little wahine on Maui this is after she gave us a huge scare and sent me into pre-term labor at 32 weeks.

It was seriously better than any 4th of July show in my history of fireworks shows. Amazing! So if you have a chance to go to an Angel's game, you better stay for the fireworks show … [Read more...]

Now during the PMS rendezvous that baby bum gets a … [Read more...]

Just another day in paradise….Southern California Paradise, that is…

Imagine this... I'm lying on a gently rocking sail boat. The sun is washing over me. I've got one arm thrown over my eyes to avoid the sun and a smile on my face. A gentle breeze comes every now and then offering just enough relief to keep me cool but not offer a chill. Reggae is spilling out from the speakers above me, filling my ears and making my foot move to the beat uncontrollably, I love me some good reggae. Did I mention I am smiling? Yes I am oozing with glee over just how relaxed … [Read more...]
