5 Random Things

I decided to jump on the bandwagon and do the "5 Random Things" link up, that is being hosted by Growing Up A ThomasThe Style Hatch & Fried Pink Tomato. This link up will be happening every 1st Tuesday of the month! Hope you all join in on the fun too!

1. I am a "Kauai Girl"- born & raised. I have lived here all my life. I won't lie, there are times, I take living here for granted, but I am constantly reminded how lucky I am to live here.  Who wouldn't want to live 10 minutes away from the beach, right? It's funny because whenever people find out I am from Hawaii, they always ask me the following 3 things:
1. Do you know how to surf? No, I do not.
2. Do you speak Hawaiian? No, I do not.
3. Do you know how to dance Hula? Yes, I used to take Hula lessons when I was younger.

 2. This may sound silly but I felt most loved by my dog Blue. Not saying I don't live a loved life, because I do... I have great friends, an amazing family and the sweetest son anyone could ever ask for... I just felt that Blue loved me unconditionally flaws and all with no expectations in return. I honestly can't describe it. Maybe all you dog owners can relate. 
Which leads me to the next fact...

3. The last time I cried was back in July... when Blue passed away.

4.  I am borderline obsessed with taking pictures of my food/drinks. Yes, I'm one of those girls! I have no shame... and yes, I do post them on Instagram! It's funny because whenever I'm eating with my son Lansen (who is 8), I'll take a picture of my food and he'll ask me if we can take a picture of his food too! I guess you could say he takes after his mom.

5. I loooove receiving mail. If I am expecting a letter/package in the mail, I will make it a point to stay home around the time the mailman usually delivers my mail. When I was younger, my mom and dad would have to drive me to our PO Box just so I could check to see if I had any mail. For my fifteenth birthday, my parents surprised me with a residential mailbox--- best. present. ever.

  1. I feel more love from my jack russells, Foxy and Mungus, than anyone or anything else could ever give me!! It is a feeling only dog owners can relate to!

  2. Ok, I am totally jealous of you - I LOVE Hawaii. Kauai is one of the few islands I haven't been too! And I also love to take pics of my food. To the point where my husband asks if it's ok to eat it! He knows me too well!

  4. Hello, I participated in the link up. Blue was gorgeous! I have a blue nose as well and we almost named him Bleu. He turned 1 on Saturday and when I read number 3 my heart sank. I can't imagine my life without my Ocean.

  5. You like mail more than me! But I usually just get junk, so womp womp. I'd probably enjoy it more if I got letters. I miss the days of letters, you know, before this internet thing. And I'm so sorry about Blue!!

    Great to meet you via the blog linky.

    1. Hi Kiki! I can't even begin to explain just how much I love mail!! I'm even considering getting my mailman a Christmas Card just so he knows I appreciate that he always delivers my mail- rain or shine!

  7. I'm the same way with my pictures with food.. I'm pretty sure that some of my instagram followers are sick of it. Also, those bracelets on your etsy store are super cute! :)

    Have a fabulous weekend!
