You Got This, 2015

Alight 2015, you can do it. All you have to do is not be a jerk and everyone will love you. DO NOT let me down. Alright??? Alright. Now that that's out on the table, let's move on.

As relaxing and enjoyable as the holidays were, it's good to finally be back in the swing of things and officially kick off my Kale, Water, and Chewing Gum-Only diet.

I was fortunate to spend the holidays split between Hawaii and San Diego, soaking up some sun and living up to my "sNOw way!" motto. My extended family and I spent Christmas on the North Shore of Oahu where we rented a big ole' house near Haleiwa and cooked big ole' family dinners every night. We hiked, swam, got beat up by huge surf, listened to old Jack Johnson albums, played games, ate a ton, drank copious amounts of wine and made fun of each other. It was fantastic. 


One of the coolest spectacles we saw was an evening of insane surf at Pipeline. The waves were about 20 ft and the surfers looked like tiny water ants on a huge mountain of ocean. Epic rides and gnarly wipeouts all over the place. My cousins, sister and I promptly went home and searched high and low for Blue Crush on Netflix.


The trip was going swimmingly until the moment I decided to purchase a $10 pineapple drink, thereby blowing any chance I had at becoming one with the locs. Back to the mainland I was sent...


Hope you all had a relaxing holiday and here's to a happy and healthy 2015!
