I was so so so happy to get to spend some time with my friend and college roommate Amanda while in Hawaii. She moved to Oahu about two years ago with her husband to pursue her dream of owning her own business and having a grand adventure by living somewhere completely new! In college, we literally shared our entire closets with each other and were laughing about how much we miss those days. Some weekends we would just wear one outfit one night and then swap for the next. I’d still swap outfits with her any day 🙂
Love these cute lace trimmed shorts from Express!
We also had so much fun decking ourselves out in flash tattoos.
She paired the lace trim shorts with a gorgeous and comfortable top from Young, Broke, and Fabulous (more styles here!).
It’s always great to be reunited with a good friend. Even though we are separated by many miles, I love that every time we are together it’s like nothing has changed.

For Thanksgiving, my family takes off to Hawaii each year to spend the holidays in an un-traditional way. It’s a nice time to rest up and re-charge the batteries before we head into winter time. Each year we try to see friends and family on the islands and also spend as much time as possible outdoors. So far this week, with Amanda visiting from Oahu, we’ve spent lots of time in the ocean. Amanda, Darrin, and I also spent a day cruising the road to Hana. We didn’t go the entire way but we made some great stops.
Hawaii sunsets are the best.
Amanda and I were reunited after a year apart!
We made sure to do lots of ocean swimming.
Amanda in her tube. We bought inter tubes and swam out to get rolled over by the waves. It was hilarious! Probably because the waves were very small 🙂
We decked ourselves out in Flash Tats.
Went on tons of long walks.
My attempt at tree pose for the first time all week.
The ocean blues, it doesn’t get any better. I’m still on the island for the rest of the week with my family but I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving week. It’s a time to be thankful for all the blessings in your life and to remind yourself to not take anything or anyone for granted. Pay it forward this week at random times and be kind. It’s not everyday we stop and really focus on things we are thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving!
