Earlier this month we had an amazing time in Hawaii to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Ko Olina Beach Villas and it was just as relaxing as we hoped! We spent plenty of time at the beach, visited the Dole pineapple plantation, ate at the shrimp trucks in North Shore, and toured the USS Missouri. Here are a few instagrams from the trip!

Road Trippin’

Clay and I are finally settled at home after spending a week crossing off another item on my 30 Before 30 list, #14: Take a road trip.

We drove up through the middle of California to the Pacific Northwest. After a few amazing days in Portland and Seattle, we drove back to Phoenix by way of Boise and eastern Nevada. We didn’t have many plans and although I was a little anxious, it worked out wonderfully. We made sure to stop at silly roadside attractions and to relax when we wanted to. We also enjoyed amazing food in every city we visited.

Here is a whole bunch of photos from the road!


After my first Paintstagram attempt, I decided to try again for my boss and friend, Dave Woodruff. His birthday was last month, and after weeks of procrastination, I finally finished his Paintstagram. It’s a 6″ x 6″ of an Instagram he took on the New York subway.

And, here’s the Instagram Dave took of the painting of the Instagram. Inceptiongram, as some people say.

ImageSnap Ceramic Tiles

Instagram is huge right now. My sister-in-law, Vanessa has been chronicling baby Henry’s life with the app and the pictures are awesome. For her birthday this year, I decided to try out ImageSnap. They take your Instagram (or any) photos and print them on ceramic tiles. The teeny tiles are 2″ by 2″ and are the perfect size for fridge magnets. They turned out really great and I’ll definitely be ordering more real soon.
