4 Years Ago Today…

WORKOUT

Wednesday: Lots of foam rolling and walking Riley.

Thursday: Body Pump (no legs)

My legs are actually feeling pretty good, but I wanted to give them one more day of rest. I was feeling a bit restless so I did BP for a good weight sesh.

Four years ago today, I got engaged!!! I had NO CLUE it was coming. Todd had a last minute work trip to Hawaii and I was lucky enough to piggy back off that and meet him out there for a vacay of our own. Todd is an excellent planner and always finds the best itineraries. One morning he took me to the Pali Lookout. We got there pretty early and no one else was there. As I was looking out at the beautifulness he called my name to turn around. Honestly, I thought he was going to offer me a bagel or something to eat, haha, but NOPE! He was on bended knee, popping the question. I was beyond elated, if you can’t tell from the pic…

Needless to say, this made the rest of our trip even more amazing! We had tossed around the idea of eloping as we were in this gorgeous place and just filled with love and excitement! In the end, I just couldn’t imagine not having my dad walk me down the isle and we had a somewhat traditional wedding back in FL. It was such a fun time to be in Hawaii because the weather was perfect. Not too hot, but never cold. And since it was December, there was Christmas stuff everywhere…

Like at the Luau we went to. Oh Hey Santa! Some of the show was a little corny, but I had a blast and the Kalua Pork was outta this world good!

This tree was at Top of Waikiki, a revolving restaurant that not only had great views but great food as well. We found the trees below on one of our random walks around the island…

The Honolulu Marathon was also scheduled while we were there and you better believe we went to the expo…

I would have run it, but I was just getting over plantar fasciitis and that would’ve been a bad idea! I know it’s super corny, but I love recognizing these special days, even though it isn’t a real anniversary or anything. December 5th still brings a smile to my face. I wish I was there right now getting my mind of that darn marathon, haha. And one more of my favorite pics from Hawaii…

This was in a lava tube on the black sand beach! I know Todd is going to hate this, but he got lasik a few years ago and I miss him with glasses! Such a stud 😉

Do you celebrate non-traditional events?

Have you ever been to Hawaii?

PS Who’s excited to watch Carrie Underwood LIVE tonight in the Sound of Music? This girl is 🙂
