Saturdaze and Life Updates

Happy weekend blog world!

So I just noticed my blogging lapse and realized I had exhausted my queued up posts. I'll be honest, this summer was really easy to get posts scheduled out really far because I had so much time on my hands when I wasn't working. Now that I'm working way more hours than before, it's gotten a bit difficult to keep up. Mostly because when I get home at night, I'm exhausted. 

My first few weeks at my new job were a HUGE adjustment because I am not a morning person by ANY means. Waking up at 6AM half the week has been like a life change. I started drinking coffee constantly (I know, that's not good) and just slowed down a couple weeks ago once I started getting used to the early hours. So much pumpkin spice creamer was used.

The last couple of weeks after I got more adjusted, I've actually been going out and doing weekend things. Going to concerts, brunch, usual weekend activities. It's kind of cool!

For the next few months I'm going to try and stay consistent but will definitely be posting less. I'm sure you guys need a break from my incessant chatter anyway, right???

Throwback Thursday

Thursday, October 20, 2016

It's Throwback Thursday!

Not a whole lot going on here but I did want to share this super funny pic of Roger in his Halloween costume last year (or was it the year before). His first Halloween he was a devil and then the next few Halloweens were spent as a hot dog. He wasn't crazy about those buns (no pun intended). The skeleton suit was a bit big and this year he's got something new (yay!). 

Love my little weirdo!

What's Up Wednesdays

Happy Hump Day!

I'm not a huge fan of the big choker trend. I have a short neck and it's kind of wide... Not a great look. It was one thing in the 90s when my neck seemed smaller but now... No.

That said, I did find this awesome dress that I am crazy about that kind of ties into that look that all the fashion bloggers have been showing this summer and fall. It's it's super comfortable and soft, it's functional (it has pockets), and it's under $50! Check it out at Nordstrom! It's a great fall piece.

Tuesday Travel Guide- Play in Oahu

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

I'm going to be honest, if it weren't for photos, I don't know if I would remember half of what I did when I was in Oahu. The Go Oahu card we got included so many activities, we used it for almost the entire week. While the trip is kind of a blur at this point, I know for sure we had a blast (or at least, it sure looks like we did in the photos). 

Below is a list of the tourist activities we did on our trip. This is in addition to shopping, the bus tours, and the random walks around Chinatown, the shopping areas, and the downtown area. And of course, trips to the beach. One of the things I figured out really early in to my planning was that a lot of the attractions are pretty spread out. Definitely check each attraction's website for transportation options- there are usually shuttle buses for a small additional fee. It also helps if you're staying at one of the hotels where they pick-up!
