Look of the week : Hawaii love.

Husband and I are headed to Kauai in a couple of weeks and I am counting down the days... for many reasons...

1. I have never been to Hawaii before and have heard incredible things, I just know it will live up to the hype!

2. While we have been traveling a lot lately (holidays and the arrival of my niece and nephew) we have not had a ton of alone time for the two of us so I cannot wait for that.

3. I am finally starting to feel better! So bring on the delicious island food...

4 . We are staying at an incredible boutique hotel, which was a splurge, but they had excellent bathrooms and that is our number one priority when booking a hotel!

5. I need some sun on my skin, badly.

6. I have never stood under a waterfall and that is top of my list to do while we are there, I know every tourist in Hawaii gets that classic pic, and well, I want one too!

7. My belly has not quite popped yet, but I imagine as soon as it does I will be way more uncomfortable, so I may as well soak up this time before everything goes out of whack.

8. The hotel has pre-natal massages!

9. I will most likely need to do some trip shopping before we leave :)

10. Did I mention the massage?

Some things topping my list for the trip are a couple of great LemLem scarves that can double as sarongs. I'm on the hunt for a new bikini, even though my belly looks like I have played too much beer pong, I will still bare it :) I also think a sweet piece of jewelry from this designer would be a great accent to wear, they all seem so beachy to me. A must for this trip are easy and comfortable sundresses like this one from Calypso. Lastly I will definitely be packing a couple of flat sandals that I can wear all day!

Any Kauai tips for us?

Hi Shelby! I stumbled upon your blog a while back and have really enjoyed it! My husband actually led a Bible study at Montana State that Brady was in while he was in Bozeman his freshman year. Crazy! Congratulations on the news of your new little one! That is really exciting!

My husband and I were in Kauai a few years back and we absolutely loved it! I highly recommend the Lonely Planet Kauai guide book. We found it to be really true to its word in all of its recommendations. You must go to the Beach House restaurant on the south end of the island. It has fabulous sunset views and I really enjoyed their macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi in a citrus white wine sauce. It is a bit of a splurge, but well worth it. Also, if you are in Kapa'a at all, their is a fun little wrap shack called Mermaids. They had really great hibiscus lemonade and I had a tasty cilantro ahi wrap while my husband enjoyed a wasabi ahi wrap.

I hope you guys have a fabulous time! I'm sure you will enjoy it... you really can't go wrong. :)

Oh my goodness, you are so sweet to take time out and send me those great ideas! The fish at Beach House sounds amazing, so I will for sure put that on my list! I will also have to check out the book you recommended... we are not going to be there for long so I want to get the most out of our little trip :) Thank you!
