This is one of those posts when I make excuses for not posting. BUT I have an okay excuse this time. You can tell it's legit because it has nothing to do with a Bravo TV show and bad sushi choices.
(Also, I want to take this opportunity to note that the title of this post is such a terrible play on words that it should probably be a nail polish color. I'm thinking something coral that only looks good on people with skin the color of mahogany leather.)
Anyway, for almost a week, we've been in Honolulu for my friend Tara's wedding. It took us awhile to get here, thanks to an American Airlines glitch, but after 27 hours of travel (longer, I feel compelled to point out, than it took us to get to the Philippines last year) we arrived, pale and grungy and still shivering from New York's 40 degree spring temperatures, to this:
I know. Disgusting, right?
Our luggage decided to keep us guessing and went rogue for about a day, but we persevered by purchasing garish new bathing suits and ordering umbrella drinks with names like "Greg Brady's Wipeout."
Both Jeff and I had to work on the trip, so I'm embarrassed to say that we've spent little time on the beach. Sam took in most of the sights from a perch on Jeff's shoulders...
... through his closed eyelids...
...or through the lens of my iPhone camera, as we shamelessly hammed (or, maybe, Spammed, since here in Hawaii they are partial to canned meat product) in our hotel room:
On Friday, Jeff and I celebrated TEN YEARS of togetherness. (We watched Point Break on the floor of the hotel room on my laptop, sharing a set of headphones and a miniature bottle of champagne. So, yeah, preeeettttty classy.)
On Saturday, I watched one of my oldest friends walk down the aisle and ugly-cried into my lei.
For most of the rest of the time, I sat looking out at the ocean while I typed in my oversize "Barack the Vote" tee shirt.
So it hasn't been the most relaxing break. The jet lag is just wearing off in time for our flight home tomorrow. But, hey, I know I'm lucky. Anywhere I get to go with these guys is a pretty sweet deal.
