Do you know what that means in Hawaiian? It means Encore! One more time! That's how I feel about vacation - just gimme more of it, dammit.
Anyway, Team 10yt went to Waikiki for a vacay to watch our good friends Anders and Hiji get marriaged. Congratulations to them. They are truly wonderful people. And soon, they will be 3. Wewt!
I didn't want to take too many pictures because frankly, I didn't freaking feel like it. I wanted to read, relax, get buzzed, and enjoy my mini vacation in my native Hawaii. Yes folks, 10yt was born there - Daddy10yt was in the military and my newborn life was spent on a tropical island. Holler.
Free flight thanks to Mr10yt's miles. Niiice. Stayed at the Sheraton Waikiki - highly recommended. It's oceanfront and was a STEAL at $107 a night thanks to Priceline. So MM, right? Clean, friendly staff, minimal room w/all that we needed. SUPER centrally located. Thumbs up.
New infinity pool Omg. Love.
Drinking a cocktail made with champagne and lychee, at the infinity pool, Diamond Head in the background, I mean, hello.
View from our room.
Some photos from the wedding!
We visited Hanauma Bay, the North Shore, Turtle Bay, Haleiwa.
Mr10yt was really big on seeing the Rainbow Bridge. It has some surfing significance, or something like that.
Me and my dude.
(I've made a mental note that armpit lipo is near the top of my Must-Have Before I Die list.
It was nice to get away. Awesome weather. Visited with old friends. Great quality time with my husband. Can't wait for my next vacation. Costa Rica? London? Philippines? Temecula? Who knows. I just know that I can't wait.

I was looking through a few old blog posts and I thought to myself - "Damn - I have no rhyme or reason to my blogging!" Although, I kind of like how it's a digital diary.
New shoes! One pair for work and one for play! They are so comfortable. Got them from Nine West. Win!
Found this in my mailbox from my dear friend Wan - she is so full of win. I LOVE Barbie!
My pretty girl Sophie. God I love her. How cute is her triple chin and lack of a neck? She's going super grey. Makes me sad =( She's going to be 6 this year. I wish she could live until she was 60.
Just so Mr. Caleb doesn't feel left out...(this is his FAVE spot in the house. Ugh, I adore this dog so much). Did you know that when we first adopted him our intent was to get him fattened up a bit and then find a new home for him? Yeah right. Not. It took but a blink for us to fall in love with this freakazoid.
And because I just can't resist:
BIG MOMENT of the week - meeting my FAVORITE author Meg Cabot at the Mission Viejo Community Center. She freaking ROCKS. She's so funny! And she is 100kx hotter in person than she is in the book photos. Official girl crush. If you need a good uplifting light read, I highly rec Boy Next Door, Everybody's Got One, and the Queen of Babble series.
My homeskillets Jessica, Ann Marie, Rachael, and me.
Some questions for those of you that bother to read my posts:
- What's your blog about?
- What do you like most about my blog?
- What don't you enjoy about my blog? I won't take offense, I'm just curious!
Also - if I don't comment on your blog already, would you leave me your blog addy if you have one? I try to read as often as I can and would love to add you to my reader. =)
Peace, love, and skinniness,

We took a trip to Moorea (an island in French Polynesia, part of the Society Islands) last year. Can't believe I never shared pictures! Here are a few:
Looking every bit the rap star:
View from our over water bungalow. Hello!
Stayed at the Hilton Moorea Lagoon & Spa - so awesome.
If I'm not wearing a black turtleneck, I'm usually donning some kind of beater tank.
I went running around the island and managed to find my brethren!
I went snorkeling!
Ate at Le Mayflower - my first time (I think) eating French food.
The husband had the healthy steamed fish and vegetables.
Of course I had the fattening cream sauce lobster ravioli. Mmm!
Snail egg roll. First time eating snails. Yeah, I won't be doing that again.
Hiking to the grocery store. So beautiful.

Work has been bananas, both before and after my recent vacation. I needed some freaking R and R like you wouldn't believe. I got some! Wewww hewwww!
I took this weekend to decompress. Got a little bit of exercise and reading in. No other obligations. Oh thank you God for weekends like this.
5 mile walk/hike at Crystal Cove in Laguna Beach with Aline, Ili, and Tasha. So gorgeous! And the views weren't bad either. ;-)
Picked up a lot of great new (and used) books to read.
Helped my husband get his new wardrobe ready. Men have it so much easier than women, IMO. He can wear anything. I picked the tie!
I'll post some pictures and have a touch of commentary on my recent vacation soon.
