I’ll Miss You, Kauai


After an incredibly long red-eye (thank you VERY LITTLE, headwinds) and a near miss of my carefully-orchestrated Overlapping Layover Plan in Phoenix, in which my saintly mother flew with Wito to Phoenix from Oklahoma City to assist in the Official Toddler Tradeoff, we’re home!

I’m sorting through six days of photos and videos and receipts, but I have tips. Lots of tips! And hundreds of photos of scenery that I won’t bore you with, I promise.

(I also never told you the results of $300 Kauai shopping excursion. 7 tanks, 3 dresses/coverups, 2 bikinis, 2 chemises (ooh la la!), 1 pair of earrings, 1 pair of sunglasses and 1 pair of shoes later…the grand total equaled $320. I lost the challenge, peeps. And I honestly could care less.)

Until then, I will leave you a photo of the best drink I have ever had the pleasure of sipping, the Lava Flow from The Beach House.


The first, but definitely not the last.



  1. you look lovely here, relaxed and happy. and your hair is gorgeous!

  2. Go look at my post from yesterday, beyotch.

  3. You look gorgeous! Love the sunshine in the background. That drink looks to die for. I’m jealous! I hope you can share more pictures with us!

  4. I have said it already, but it bears repeating. You are breathtaking in that photo.

    Go me! Those condos you can barely see in the background? That’s where I stayed on my honeymoon! Man, now I’m all nostalgic. We were there over Christmas, so all the rich people who fly their entire extended families there for the holidays EVERY YEAR cracked us up with their whole, “Oh your honeymoon, that’s wonderful! Will you come back every year to celebrate?” Yeah, I WISH.

  6. Oh, VACATION. You look so relaxed in that photo.

  7. Ok, maybe not all 300, but can you post a few?? However did you get so much for only $320?! I wouldn’t feel bad either!

  8. yum! I got some sort of coconut/macadamia/banana drink at the Beach House when I was there. Hands-down best drink of my LIFE! I’m glad you had fun, can’t wait to see the pictures!

  9. Welcome Back!

    You look hawt and like you enjoyed your time there!

    So jealous!

    Lovely, and I dare say that I would love to see all 300 photos! Ok, just a few? Please?

  11. Girl, you know how to vacation.

  12. So glad you had a good time! Can’t wait to see pics!

  13. Love that photo and your beachy hair! You are glowing with relaxation. Post photos (maybe only 298) please, for those of us who woke up to MORE &*$#@& SNOW today.

    Can’t wait to hear all about it.

  14. You look lovely.

    love to see pics and in your spare time can you make a daily video of wito, duke just can’t get enough!

  16. Miss Virginia says:

    What a fantastic escape. PLEASE post pic’s so I can live vicariously through you. i’m stuck in snow and dreaming of the day I can go back to Hawaii. And obviously, The Beach House will be our first stop. The menu looks as amazing as your cocktail.

  17. That drink looks delish. Plus, your hair still looks fab, even while on vacation!

  18. I wish my hair looked like that. Mine is much flatter.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the trip =)

  19. Sigh. I am insanely jealous.

  20. you look beautiful and so happy!

    i hope you got the recipe for the drink – it looks yummy.

  21. What is in that drink? I NEED ANSWERS. And also, at least two of said drinks. What, it was that kind of week.

    (You look so perfectly beachy in that shot, by the way. I love it.)

  22. Wait – you ARE going to tell us about each of those tanks and dresses and bikinis and where you got them and include photos of each, RIGHT?

    Because I’m going to the beach soon, and I haven’t found much that I want to buy for the trip. And I need to buy things for the trip.

  23. Miguelina says:

    You’re back! I’ve missed you, lovely girl!

  24. Oh! I have had that SAME DRINK at that SAME PLACE. (as have many others, but still! yay!) Also: deeelish.

  25. You look so! happy in that picture. I love that.


  1. […] month, I asked Whoorl for her suggestion on hair products, since she had just gone to Kauai and had really cute pictures of her hair while drinking a fruity drink. I realized that I wanted to spend my vacation drinking fruity drinks […]
