December 2012: I meant to do an entire post on our Christmas vacation, but... it's the end of July already! Haha. Aaron and I took Hawaiian Airlines' nonstop flight to NYC and spent half the day there. We rolled our luggage around the city as we walked through the big B&H Photo store and ate lunch at one of our favorite burger places, Shake Shack. We then took a bus to Baltimore, where my parents came to pick us up. We spent a week with my 7 week old nephew Jonah, and the rest of my family. We had a beautiful white Christmas and had tons of yummy food, just picture perfect for us Hawaiians. I was so glad that we could all spend time together :)
Lindsey Stirling. They drove around the country in a big old fancy tour bus playing to sold out shows. I made a pan of chocolate covered strawberries and ate them all myself ;) I also went to Phoenix and visited with my good friend Erika. We went shopping at the amazing Last Chance (where all the overstock/returned designer Nordstrom stuff goes). I got a pair of Jimmy Choo pumps for less than $100! And we got some cupcakes at Sprinkles and Five Guys Burgers and spent some time at the pool. It's always fun to get some girl time in.
blogged about a few months ago, my beautiful niece Anna was born on St. Patrick's day. It was so cool to see my brother become a Dad. I hopped on a plane and saw them all in Maryland for a few days :)
April 2013: My little sister came to visit! We painted nails, went to the beach, and ate coconut shrimp! Then we met up with my brother-in-law on Maui. We went to Iao Valley, more beaches, and had a yummy dinner at Roys. Love seeing them.
