30 is the new sexy

Happy 30th Birthday to my stud muffin husband!


 I am so lucky to get to walk through life with you and wish you the happiest of days. You are the best thing and my greatest adventure. I can't wait to celebrate with you tonight! XO

I think I get a pass on being too mushy on the blog when it's his birthday, no? ;)

a life dump

So, I guess this is what happens when you take a bit of a blogging hiatus. I know, I know, how annoying.

But I'm back today and I have so many things to catch you up on. For starters, yesterday Dane finished the Honolulu Marathon. 26 point-freaking 2 miles of hell running and he finished with a smile on his face. I'm so happy for him that he checked off such a major bucket list item and I could not be prouder.




And not that this is something to be entirely proud of, but the man didn't train a single moment. The most he has run was a 10-miler several years ago so the fact that he woke up at 5am and busted out 26 miles in 5 hours is freaking damn awesome.

Moving right along, we have my obsession with #judyhanson and the Christmas tree. She's not a dog model, but I take enough photos of her that she might start charging a fee.



One day I'll stop, but today (or any of the ones left in December) is not that day. Oh look, another one...
Okay, I'm done..for now.

Last week, Dane and I attended the HuffPost Hawaii Christmas party and it was nothing short of rockin'. All you can drink Hawaiian moonshine, ceviche and a photobooth? Sign us up!


And on one final note, my parents come into town TOMORROW! I am so freaking excited, I cannot even begin to explain it via coherent text, so we will just leave it there.

What have I missed this past week in the blog world? How have YOU been?

Tootaloo blog friends!

12 Dogs of Christmas

As if you needed further proof that I was obsessed with dogs, check out my latest Huffington Post piece, "12 Dogs of Christmas"!

A total shameless plug here, but it was featured on HuffPost Good News & I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm incredibly proud of that!

By now you know I'm prepping for the holidays by looking at Christmas photos of dogs on Instagram.
