Life's Little Details

I'm back...back in the blogging grooooove! How are you? Can I just interject for a moment and tell you how much I missed you? The break was quite nice, but this Type-A gal thrives on her routine. Not to worry, current conditions at Lil' Puna are normal. The in-laws left the island last Thursday, and I returned to work on Friday -- leaving just enough time for Flyboy and me to enjoy a weekend together.

Despite the bloggie break last week, I attempted to document our island adventures via Instagram. Yes, I was that annoying girl obsessively uploading pictures. Call me snap happy, but it's always fun to play the role of tourist -- even if you've visited the same spots countless times! It was a mini-vacation chock full of sightseeing, relaxation, and gastro-induldgence. Take a look at some of my favorite moments...

A trip to the Pacific Aviation Museum and Pearl Harbor.
Flyboy's Folks / Primp & Polish / Leonard's Malasadas -- stressing cleanliness (good to know!) / Summer Uniform: Chambray + Soludos
Crisp Beverage + Beach Time / Puppy Love / King Kamehameha Statue / Stearman N2S-3 Soloed by President George H. W. Bush
Chinaman's Hat / Red Velvet Pancakes at Cinnamon's / Flyboy & Beez / A Colorful Gecko
4th of July Getup / Cute & Colorful Truck / A Happy Package / Errands & List Making
When I mentioned gastro-indulgence earlier, I meant it. In a period of ten days, my father-in-law made two Angel Food Cakes and we managed to finish BOTH. Can you say gluttonous? We also ate Macadamia Nut Pancakes at Boots & Kimo's TWICE in one week. As if that wasn't bad enough, we indulged in Red Velvet Pancakes from Cinnamon's. Don't judge -- we had to name a winner in this heated local breakfast battle. The verdict? Boots & Kimo's trumps Cinnamon's without a doubt. If you ever make it to Hawaii, you MUST try the magic Mac Nut Sauce. It's heavenly! I guess all those hours Flyboy and I have spent watching Man vs. Food has finally paid off. This past week, man won! As a result, I have a date with my spin bike. Womp womp...

What have you been up to lately? Do tell.
Happy Monday!

  6. Hi Ashley!
    I'm so glad I was able to find your blog you left the nicest comment on mine a few weeks ago after Father's Day and everytime I'd click on your name it wouldn't take me to your information to find out what your blog link was, but glad to connect, I follow you on Instagram as well & love both the pics you post on there & your blog! And the tour of your house post is fabulous, can you please come help me out with my place here in NYC! :)
