Hawaii Week: View from the Top

If you got the impression from my last post that all we did on our Hawaii trip was sit around, drink bevvies and lay-out until we couldn't ingest anymore calories... you would be a wrong. We definitely enjoyed our Booze Cruise and our ensuing night out but we allowed that to be our big night out. We also spent a lot of our time there drinking ice tea, coffee, walking and really, taking it all in.

{On top of Diamond Head 1/24/2011}

One of the main things we both wanted to do while we were there was hike Diamond Head. I thought it was a mountain but it's described as a "tuff cone", whatever, I'm not interested in that foreign description (sorry my beloved Ross Geller), it's like hiking a mini-mountain that just so happens to be really warm. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is going to Hawaii. It took about an hour to get up and it required going through a very dark tunnel and climbing basically a wall of stairs... but holy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, the VIEWS are to DIE for. And wouldn't you know it? I got some pictures of it.

Wearing sneakers always reminds me of the cute girls who rock them oh so well, I'm not one of them but I always appreciate a good pair of kicks on a pretty girl*.
 Holy Yay, it's Friday! Have a great one!
*PS Miranda- I searched for a tennis shoe shot of you!! My fave kick girl.

Those views are simply breathtaking!!!

I always buy sneakers with such good intentions, but never end up wearing them. But I think they look awesome on everyone else…maybe this post has inspired me to sport mine this weekend!?

Happy Friday and have a fabulous weekend!
