aloha friday


48 hours in Vegas apparently means 5 days of recovery in this neck of the woods.  But getting to see my nearest and dearest, dance with B until the early morning and day drink while watching USA rugby games made the long plane flights and the barley-any-sleep nights worth every second. Since getting back, this week has been a dead sprint and most of the usual meal planning was instead picking up a salad or veggie sandwich in between meetings. While I am always grateful for a full and busy life, the finish line of a full and busy week sometimes never comes fast enough.  Thankfully, in the madness I had some major assists for fun things to share with you on this Aloha Friday (credit Chris, Chris, B)…

° “I love Jesus, but I drink a little“-Gladys from Austin, Texas. I just can’t watch this enough times.

º Or this- pregnant surfer! Chris was one of the biggest supporters of me moving to Hawaii (and Hawaii + outdoors in general) AND she recently gave birth to beautiful baby girl, so this video could not be more fitting.

° This fun video for Love This Town by Dizzee Rascal takes random acts of kindness to the next level. Wait for it to drop at 1:40, and 3:12 is my absolute favorite.

I had huge plans to bring you some delicious Super Bowl dishes options- & if a big night of sleep does the trick, you might hear about one of these again tomorrow morning- but in the meantime check out these great {vegan} options for party food this weekend from some wonderful bloggers: avocado fries, jalapeño poppers, & salted marcona chocolate rice crispies (may also double for V-day! Too soon?)

I hope everyone had a wonderful week and you’re gearing up for a good weekend with time to relax, recoup and cheer for whomever during the big game this weekend (as a Texan, I’ll probably be cheering loudest for the chips & dip) xoxo
