It’s a big night. We leave for Hawaii for a family vacation in the morning. We live an hour away from the airport so we drove in to the city tonight. Our flight is at 6am (woof) and we have to be there to check in and check bags at 4:15, so the 3:30am wake up tomorrow morning is gonna be a rough one. It’s totally worth it though. I’m stoked to go to Hawaii, as I’ve never been to the big island before and am looking forward to sun on my skin for the next week. We’ve used our hotel points to book the first two nights, then we’re camping all around the island for the next four days, then using hotel points again for our final night (goodness knows we’ll all need showers by that point). All that being said, here’s what else is going on currently:
Making: Last minute checks through the luggage to make sure I’m not forgetting anything. But really, I’ve got swim suits, flip flops and sunscreen… so I’m good.
Wanting: To be able to take Tango with me on all trips. I hate leaving him behind. I mean… look at that face up there! He was ignoring me and tucking himself into a ball when we left the house tonight. Daggers straight through the heart, man.
Watching: The Final Four games! Gonzaga’s win just now declares me the victor of both my bracket challenges: the one with Fraser (the most important, because of The Bet) and my San Diego bracket for dollars!
Listening: To the S-Town podcast! YOU GUYS. Are you listening? I’m on Chapter 4 of 7. Hoping to be finished in the next couple days. Can’t wait to discuss fully. I keep having to scroll past all threads on Facebook to avoid spoilers.
Drinking: Nothing fancy now, but I’m planning on some Mai Tai’s in about 24 hours. *Heart eye emoji*
Eating: We ordered pizza because we’re in the airport hotel tonight.
Enjoying: Less and less snow by the day. Spring’s on its way up north! (I feel like this is a permanent answer for this spot for the next several months)
Hoping: For safe, smooth travels this week. Keep the fingers crossed we don’t need our first aid kit…
Needing: To get to sleep. 3:30am is going to come quickly.
Feeling: Like Moana tonight. We played the soundtrack on the way to the hotel!
Wearing: Pajamas now, but a swim suit, shorts, and tank every day this week.
Noticing: This Oregon team’s tenacity. They’ve had a great tournament. I was secretly rooting for them tonight. Sorry UNC buds.
Pinning: This article my BFF sent me from the Guardian: Protest & Persist.
Wishing: We could have the rest of our families with us on this trip!
Loving: That this will be our vacation with me as a part of the family. #allthefeels
