Hawaii Part I


This deep freeze that has a hold on most of the country has me craving warmer weather and the arrival of spring.  Heck - as much as I love it,  I’d be happy to skip spring and go right to summer at this point.  Needless to say these are the reasons I’ve been reminiscing about my Hawaii trip last month and dreaming of the sun.  

Since I’ve been pregnant through this fall and winter, I don't have any summer pregnancy clothes nor do I want to buy any, so I tried my best to make do with what I had.   One thing I did buy for my trip is this non-maternity beach cover up from TJ Maxx which is super flowy and will work this summer when I am no longer pregnant as well.  I loved the bright color which just so happened to match my beach bag perfectly.  

While I was away, most mornings consisted of yoga on the beach or a long power walk followed by breakfast in this comfy cover up.  My favorite breakfast spot was the WHALE’S TAIL JUICE HUT, a cute little stand with scrumptious baked goods, fresh pressed juices and a killer view.   

The rest of the day was spent lounging at the pool or catching up on some work followed by dinner with my husband.  One of our favorite dinners was at KA’ANA KITCHEN in the ANDAZ HOTEL.  This open concept restaurant focuses on "shared plates" which highlight the local in season harvest.  They serve a killer breakfast too!  We made a quick stop in the lobby which was so cool and modern I could only imagine how nice the rooms are.  I fell in love with the sleek color palette (which I happened to match) and clean lines so much so that I took lots of pictures I'll keep for inspiration for when we buy a new house.   

Stay tuned for more on my Hawaii trip as well as a full list of my favorites spots to hit in Maui.  In the meantime think warm thoughts.
