Back from Hawaii!

I'm back from Hawaii...unfortunately. I wish I was still there. Oahu was awesome! Thanks for all the ladies that helped me plan my trip. I didn't get that many good pictures =(.

Here are a couple pictures. Please excuse the bad quality. We took all these with our point and shoot underwater camera.

Swam with sharks, I was in a cage of course. But WOW there were so many sharks! I could basically touch them..but I wasn't stupid enough to stick my hand out.

My fav thing to do - Pig out at the shrimp trucks!

Snorkeling at Hanauma bay. Look at this big zebra fish hehe

Horseback riding along the beach.

We hung out with some friends and locals. It turns out that two of our friends were in Hawaii the same time. We met the owner of 88 tees that weekend. She has awesome tees by the way! Very funky and "harajuku". Check it out here. She was taking out this Japanese popstar/actor named ka-kun so we hung out and had a couple drinks with them (Josh and I are in the back..I'm in the pink dress). Ka-kun kept insisting that Josh looked like Tom Cruise. I saw no resemblance LOL.

Other things I did: hiked Manoa Falls, ate lots of shave ice, sun bathed at the beach.

One HORRIBLE thing did happy on my trip however. We rented a Jeep wrangler convertible. Before hiking Mauna falls, I LOCKED my iphone inside of the glove compartment. I guess it is really easy to break into because when I came back, my phone was gone! When we went swimming with the sharks, we purchased a DVD of ourselves...those punks stole our DVD!!! I mean, I could have understood the iphone, but a dvd? That video meant a lot to us because it was irreplaceable. Well, I'm over it now though. I still had fun the rest of the trip!

chrissie- I did a lot of the things from the list you gave me! I had a plate lunch at Rainbow drive, Napples at Zipps, Ramen, had shave ice (3x). I missed out on a couple things but I hope to get to them next time I go. I went to Kailua but missed out on Lanikai juice =\. I did go to Boots and Kimmi and had the best macadamian pancakes. yummmy!
jeni - I didn't get to visit Cinnamon Girl, hopefully next time!
ali - I didn't get a chance to visit Fighting Eel this time either =(
r+v - Got my giovannis! We actually went out on a shrimp eating marathon! I tried about 4 of them LOL. Giovanni's still got my vote for the best GARLIC shrimp!

Vacation is over =(. Time to plan the next vacation. Paris? Italy?

Rocket Dog Eco Friendly Shoe Collection at Ruche

These arrived today and I'm so excited to share them with you. At last!! CUTE Eco friendly shoes! I have always been a big fan of Rocket Dog shoes. I am now a bigger fan because of their Eco friendly collection. Rocket Dog made these shoes from a "planet huggin' mix of natural and recycled synthetic materials" that would otherwise go to waste. Even the soles, stitching, and color dyes are eco-conscious.

Some new organic clothing added too!

Adding to the whole eco mood, Josh and I have decided to become flexitarians (semi-vegetarians). We are going to try it for a while to see how it goes, but I have high hopes. We are lowering our meat consumption by over half. Today we had fake BBQ chicken and it was delicious! I'm so happy, we saved a chicken today hehe. There is no way we can become pure vegetarians, Josh loves tacos too much to sacrifice meat entirely. And of course, vacations are exceptions. 3 more days until Hawaii!!!!!

An Update

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! I went to Northern California to visit my inlaws and had a blast!

My Victoria Secret swimsuit came in today and I'm so bummed because it doesn't fit well with my body shape at all. I was under the impression that it was a marigold yellow, but it turned out to be regular bright yellow! Luckily, I dropped by Old Navy and found one for only $26.90. It is also a one piece suit but with thin brown zebra stripes. It is plunged at the bust with a brass ring. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the swimsuit on their website to show you!

On another note, Thanks for everyone who participated in our Giveaway with Stephanie Williams! Congrats Ashlee!

Help me find the perfect bathing suit!

The hubby and I will be heading off to Hawaii in less than two weeks! I've never been to Hawaii! It is going to be a short vacation, just 4 1/2 days. I'm sure I'll be enjoying every single minute of it! I'm planning to go to a luau, swim with sharks (in a cage of course), snorkel, get a tan, drink fresh coconuts, relax, and eat my heart out. Josh and I love food =D. This is what I've been craving for: Giovanni's Shrimp Truck.

Anyhow, I am on a quest to find a cute one piece bathing suit. I already have bikinis, but I gained a little weight in the mid section so I'd feel more comfortable in a one piece. Plus I've always wanted a more conservative bathing suit just in case.

I've been looking at Urban outfitters, Anthropologie, and Victoria secret. Are there any other good sites/store?

Based on the ones that I've see on those sites, I've narrowed it down to two. Help! Which one should I get??
