Tuesday’s Top Three

It’s already time for another edition of Tuesday’s Top Three!!  I’ve been trying  my best to find themes related with the seasons/holidays.  But…today that is NOT happening.  I just got back yesterday afternoon from a little football trip/vacation with Tab.  We had so much fun.  It was SO relaxing!!  I couldn’t wait to share my pictures SO…today is my Top Three Things about this Hawaiian vacation.  Original, huh??  🙂

#1 One of my very favorite things…the FOOD!!!  We usually ate a big breakfast, a little snack around lunch time, and then had a big dinner.  The food was SO delish!!  I have a special place in my heart for this coconut syrup.  I’m sure it’s a mixture of sugar & water and it is NOT good for me AT all, but I love it all the same!  SO yummy on my pancakes!!

We had dinner at The Yard House with Doug and Tracie.  Doug is on Tab’s crew.  I hung out with Tracie a ton this weekend.  I’d never met her before and she was the sweetest!

#2 I had a BLAST hanging out with this guy for 4 days!!  I love my kiddos to death!!  But…it’s so nice to get away and be stress-free with my hubby!!

Friday morning we set out to conquer Diamond Head.  This year I had no preggo excuse to use!!  Somehow I fell behind.  ha!  Just for fun…

This was us last year!!  Yikes!

And us this year.  I felt SO much better!!

It might not look that big from this picture, but it was a pretty long trek up to the top of the mountain!!  I was hot, tired, and sweaty!!

I hate to admit this, but I’m officially not a beach person!  I LOVE everything about it, BUT I’d rather stay in my nice clean padded chair by the pool and watch the people out on the beach.  I love being RIGHT beside the beach, but I’m okay with staying in my pool chair.  I have NO clue why so many people were swimming.  The water was FREEZING!!

This was where I preferred to sit up shop.  I stayed here almost 3 full days!  

Friday evening we had dinner with two other couples at D.K.’s Steakhouse.  DELISH!!!

Saturday the guys had meetings and the game, so a few of us ladies headed to the mall!  Tiombe, Tracie, and I stuck together.  These ladies were SO MUCH FUN!

We even watched some of the game in this bar/grill in the mall.

There he is.  🙂

We thought it’d be fun to do a little comparison picture.  Same tree in 2013.


#3 It was SO nice to RELAX!!!

My last dinner on the island before I boarded my plane.  Tab had to go to New York for business so we were on different flights.  I was (literally) flying solo for half the day before I boarded my plane for the mainland.  

Happy Tuesday!!
