Hang 10 dudes!

Let me start by saying that this vacation was way more champagne than beer....and thank you mom and dad for buying us dinner and excursions all week because I managed to spend over $800 alone, without excursions and dinners. I spent the last week in Maui where I turned a fabulous shade of bronze. I had the best vacation of my life. While in Maui with my family and best friend-sans Vinnie because he had to work- I became a beach bum, snorkeled every day, finally realized that I too can achieve the perfect "beach hair", met pro-surfers and pro kite-boarders, learned how to SURF-thanks to Adam and Jeff (the above mentioned pro's taught us for FREE! It helps to have big boobs and be blonde and have 2 sisters with me who are equally as cute as myself, apparently), had Adam take me and my best friend kayaking and touched a turtle (a HUGE turtle)- and you thought I would paddle- ha! We found someone to paddle for us- champagne baby, champagne! We went on a champagne catamaran cruise, went to a luau and got pulled up on stage (like a Rock Star!), ate the most amazing fish of my life, drank too many Bloody Mary's and corona's, rocked my $44 cowboy hat that Vinnie had a meltdown when I purchased-EVERY SINGLE DAY, saw the best magician ever- I HIGHLY reccomend Warren and Annabelle's, and learned how to move on and put the past behind me. All in all this was a crazy learning experience. I managed to stay on "Maui time" all week and only freaked out about a schedule once, ok maybe twice but in my defence I am a natural planner. I plan- it's what I do. I'll post more when I upload the rest of us surfing, the underwater camera's and my sister's camera.

I haven't ever touched on bathrooms, however I am in love love love with this console sink vanity from Pottery Barn. Since we are planning bathroom remodels this year, I have been on the prowl for a copy....ta da! Found one! PB's version $2299 is insane (1st pic). But have faith! Home Depot's version of this fabulous console sink in only $999. Sweet deal!

I'm back and better than ever!

I would just like to apologize for being MIA for the past month or so. With the holidays being so hectic, I could barely check my e-mails let alone update my blog. But 2009 brings resolutions and mine is to post at least 1 great find a week. So if you are on the hunt for something, send me pictures- let me help you find it for less $! Happy New Year!
