Christmas in Hawaii Part I

This year Mike and I did something a little untraditional and split up for Christmas.  I flew home to Hawaii to see my family and Mike stayed in LA with his.  At the time we made these plans we seriously thought it made sense…but in hindsight…spending such an important holiday apart was dumb and we…

Flat Iron Building +Eataly + Shake Shack + Cupcakes by Melissa

One spot that Mike and I didn’t get to spend much time in was the flat iron area.  We literally did a few pit stops at some iconic locations but didn’t spend a lot time looking around or enjoying the scenary.  One big regret I have.  But that’s ok, we can put it on our…

Hawaii (Part IV: Road to Hana)

On one of the days in Maui, Markel and I drove the Road to Hana. Let me just say…it’s pretty fucking overrated.  I don’t regret going (b/c it was pretty), But i don’t think it’s something i will ever do again.  Laying out by the pool and drinking mai tais vs. driving for 6 hours? …
