I Wish the Real World Would Just Stop Hassling Me

Well, I'm back from Hawaii. Sigh. It was such a short trip, but I'm so glad we went! My mom was shocked--I wish I had taken a picture of her face. It was priceless. 



Navy blue sweater: Gap; dark skinny jeans: Old Navy; pink scarf: possibly Marshall's (I can't really remember); tan wedges: Sam Edelman, Hemline Boutique


I thought I would share a few pictures from my trip. Here's my mom and I posing in front of the ocean on some lava rocks. (I wish I could say I got more tan than I look in this picture, but I'd be lying!) 

Here's our view from Jeff's house. How awful to look out the window every day and see this! Ha ha. (And this was even on a cloudy day!)



And this was my favorite picture. Doesn't it look like a postcard? This was taken at the botanical gardens near Hilo. Hawaii is every bit as beautiful as I had heard--I hope this trip isn't my last!

  12. Those photos in Hawaii are lovely. I'm supposed to be visiting my friends who just moved to Hawaii this summer, so you've made me that much more anxious for my trip ;)
