LIVING MY LIFE THROUGH ONE DELIGHTFUL DETAIL AT A TIME.

Hello friends! Long time no chat, right? I really am deeply sorry for leaving all you wonderful people out of loop but it felt so good to get away, recoup + re-energize. Life gets hectic sometimes and even when you think things will start to slow down a bit they don't. 

A few weeks ago N + I spent some much needed time away on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. It truly was pure magic & pictures honestly don't do it any justice. We were blessed to have good friends that lived on the island + would host us during our stay - Moe + Travis

N + I spent most of our days with no definite plans. We did whatever we wanted to do when we wanted to do it. We ate what we wanted too (lots of Acai bowls, shaved ice + malasadas), took naps when we wanted too & explored the island until we couldn't hold our heads up at night. The 10 days we spent in Hawaii was so much better than we ever expected + coming home was hard & quite frankly depressing. We even tried to finagle a way for us to stay longer or hey, move there. But that wasn't in the cards. 

Spending time in Waimanalo with good friends + my better half was just what I needed to get inspired again. I hope to be back to blogging at least 3-4 x a week, work schedule permitting. I truly do love this little nook of mine & what keeps me coming back is all the readers whom I've enjoyed getting to know. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Now tell me! What have all of you been up too? Spill it :)

Jet Setting Adventures | Part 1

So I promised you all some pictures from Nick & I's jet setting adventures to Boston & I am full-filling that promise! & you should be proud of me because I am the

absolute

worst at posting pictures! ha I took so many pictures on our vacay that it has taken me forever to go through them, but here are some of them! I will be sharing the rest in another post! :]

This first set of pictures are from Game 6 of the Washington Capitals vs Boston Bruins playoff game in DC. Nick surprised me with front row tickets! The seats were absolutely auhmazing but too bad they lost :/ But on the upside if they would have won I would never have gotten to go to Boston  with my other half!

We arrived in Boston at 9:45 AM on Wednesday & we couldn't check in to our hotel until 4:30 so we dropped our bags offs at the hotel & walked around the gorgeous city!

Nick & I found the Democratic Donkey! 

The beautiful City Hall building!

This cute little cupcake place that I was dying to go into but we never actually got around to going! So def the next time we go we will have to get a cupcake!

gorgeous city clock!

this arch in the middle of the city was absolutely gorgeous & it was next to a big green field & the water!

our first drinks before noon at the green dragon! ;]

Nick got fish & chips + I got shepards pie = AMAZING! but let me tell you I had food baby the rest of the day.

the view from our hotel! :]

When we were at the game Nick & I were probably 2 of about 50 Capitals fans in the entire building that holds about 17,000 people. You could say it was an experience I will never forget -- from being harassed by Bruin fans to being 1 of 50 other Capitals fans witness the defeat of the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoff champs. When we won the place was DEAD SILENT! You could hear a needle drop & of course my little ol' yelp! haha It was a good feeling tho!

We got celebratory drinks after the game! This was a delicious cucumber martini :]

P.S. Today is my first official day of my general surgery rotation. I am really really really nervous. I am not sure what my work schedule will be just yet, but I do know that it will be extremely lonnnnng hours {like 90 hours a week} & no time for myself. So please keep me in your thoughts! & I will be sure to update you on my adventures :]
