Birthday Re-cap...

[packed and ready to go, but first...]

Whew, it has been a busy and really fun couple of weeks...

  • Birthday week started off with this present to myself.
  • I also had a whole week full of spa appointments, starting off with my first set of lash extensions and ending with a mani/pedi @ Bliss Spa Scottsdale.
  • This year's birthday dress is from Contrarian (it's been on my wish list since 2012!).
  • On my actual birthday, we had a very nice dinner fountain-side at Dominick's Steakhouse (which was even better than we remembered).
  • Nick spoiled me by buying me a pair of Louboutins, but unfortunately they hurt my feet so I returned them for a pair of Valentino Rockstud Pumps (which I'm sure will also hurt my feet).
  • And finally, it all culminated with a nice vacation in Waikiki!

[the view from our hotel room @ the Westin was amazing]

[on our second day, we hiked up Diamondhead and were treated to another nice view]

[of course, we had to soak up the sun]

[I had my first Acai bowl and it was delicious, so I had another one]

[we enjoyed tropical drinks and live music for four straight days @ The Beach Bar]

[I can't swim, but attempted snorkeling (not recommended) @ Hanuama Bay]

[the shaved ice from Island Vintage Shave Ice was so good we went back two days in a row]

[we were very touristy and took selfies all over the place]

[Malasadas @ Leonard's Bakery - they were good, but I still prefer Krispy Kreme]

[on our last day, we drove to Haleiwa to look at the big waves and turtles (none were found)]

...and now we're back, ready to tackle the Arizona summer!...
