Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

Hawaii countdown is ON!

Last spring, when my tinniest sister Hannah graduated from college, and moved her tiny self all the way to Hawaii  (fiancé in tow) we all cried our eyes out. 
{look how cute she was!!}
But then we realized that just meant that we could start planning a trip to HAWAII!! Well, that trip is now upon us friends, we leave next week! 
It is a weird feeling, I have only seen my sister once in a YEAR!! That is so bizarre, and so strange. I can’t wait to hop off the plane and hug her!! 
The whole fam damily is going…
Mom and Dad…
Sis and Matt…
and even Matt’s parents and brother!! 
It’s like real life Modern Family goes to Hawaii! 
{ladies to my knowledge the bro is till single… I repeat, single 😉 }
I can’t wait to visit Hannah and Ben in their natural habitat, it sure looks like they have been having a terrible time. 
I am beyond anticipation at this point. It can’t get here fast enough! Except yes it can, because I am still waiting on a bathing suit top to get here. Common’ vickies
They have been having some pretty awesome sales, I swiped both of these little numbers last week for a nice price.
1 / 2
However they don’t look exactly like that on me… hmm.
I have never been to Hawaii, and I am so looking forward to a break and to recharge. Have you been? Are there things we must do?? I am sure sis will keep us plenty busy, but I would love to hear your Hawaii “musts”!!

    eeeek! I am so excited you get to see your sister! There are so many fun things to do here, I am certain she will show you all the best things!

    You MUST go to Turtle Beach as the turtles come in. It's amazing. And I would suggest going to a good old fashion luau! Hahah. We had an awesome time. It was pretty cliche but so fun!

  3. Ahhh that sounds like so much fun, I know you'll have the best time! I've never been to Hawaii but out here on the West Coast I feel like everyone I know has been, so I'm dying to take a trip! Also, you and your two sisters are all so pretty, seriously such a gorgey family 🙂 And I love those suits you ordered, really cute! xoxo

    Check out my Hawaii itinerary. I'm not sure which island you are going to but I have quite a few things listed that I have already done on Oahu. (Little list for Big island too) Have such a great time!!!! I love it here!

  5. Oh lordy this looks incredible! You're going to have such an awesome time!

  6. How exciting! My husband and I went for our honeymoon and it was the most amazing trip ever. We spent half our trip on Oahu and the other half on Maui. My Oahu must visits are: the town of Haleiwa on the North Shore (very slow paced, natural Hawaii) and of course Pearl Harbor. If you were going to Maui, I'd say the Road to Hana is an absolute must, Pineapple Grill's pineapple upside down cake, and a snorkeling day cruise (although I'm sure you could do one of those no matter what island you went to). Have an amazing trip!

    You all have to go snorkeling!!!! It was one of the best things hubs and I did on our honeymoon. It was amazing!

  8. Are you sure you don't have any room in your suitcase to fit me in there? I could use some hawaiian sun 🙂

  9. Ahh!! Hope y'all have the best time!!

  10. Ashley says:

    That poor girl…having to live in Hawaii….NO sympathy here! haha.

    Sounds like it is going to be SUCH a great trip, with so many great people! You and the boyfriend are too fricken cute.

  11. I am sure your sis will have some amazing things to do as she has lived there a year but I LOVED the trolley tour. There is one that will take you to some awesome look out points!

  12. Terrai says:

    I have a feeling that you are going to come back engaged :))

  13. You will have an AWESOME time in Hawaii! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Hawaii and that's because I LOVE the beach! The atmosphere, the beach, the sun! Everything! I'm not sure which part of Hawaii you'll be visiting but I went to Waikiki twice and have absolutely loved it. If you're going to Waikiki, go snorkelling at Haunama Bay. It's absolutely gorgeous!

  14. LeAnn says:

    Hawaii Musts: Drive to the North Shore for a sunrise!! It's super early, but equally breathtaking and so worth it!! Have lunch at a food truck on your drive back. It doesn't matter which one as they are all equally delish. Pearl Harbor for obvious reasons, eat at Chart House in Waikiki. delicious food and wonderful view! have a blast!!

  15. Kenzie Smith says:

    Oh how exciting! Hawaii looks absolutely gorgeous! I haven't been, but hopefully one day 😀

  16. Shiene143 says:

    Wow Hawaii! I really love the beaches there, hope I can go and visit there soon! Love the photos you have shared in here. 🙂
