5 On Friday

One: Pike Place Roast Instant Coffee!!photo (1)So happy they now do instant packets!  Since we don’t have a coffee maker and the coffee press is way too time consuming, this is a much easier way to get my taste of Seattle.  I also discovered all Starbucks serve the Pike Place Roast as one of their brewed coffees, even here in London!

Two: Insanity – Upper body weight training

I only found this DVD hidden at the back of the box recently, and it’s a great full body workout even though it mainly targets the upper body.  Each set has a cardio and abs component and really gets your heart pumping.  I don’t have any of my own dumbbells so I use the ones Greg used as a teenager, they are so heavy!

I only have 6 days of my Diet Bet left and I’ve already hit my goal weight, so hopefully I’ll be able to maintain or just keep losing till weigh in day!

Three: Girls! Season 3 just started here in the UK so I’m glad my Friday night is free to finally catch up.  Shoshanna and that rocking chair cracked me up!

Four: Family Skype time!

The only time I get to talk to my family on West Coast is on the weekends due to the 8 hour time difference.  My Mom lives on the East Coast so luckily it’s only a 5 hour difference so I usually get to talk to her everyday.  I love being able to Skype and see each other,  I always make her show me our dog and cats, and since it’s been snowing like crazy there it’s neat to see her snow covered yard!

Five: Hawaii!!

We are in the process of planning our honeymoon.  We were originally thinking of spending our entire time in Maui, but now we think we may spend a week in Maui and 3 days in Honolulu.  It’s so exciting to read about all the fun snorkeling, hiking, outdoorsy things to do.  If anyone has any recommendations for things to do, see, or eat on either island, please let me know!

    Congrats on reaching your goal before the end of the bet! That’s awesome!!

    I went to Maui a couple of years ago and they have absolutely beautiful snorkeling and scuba diving. I highly recommend it. Also recommend driving the Road to Hana. So breathtaking.

    And Sosh is a riot 🙂

  2. Ahhhh you’re going to have a blast on your honeymoon!! I would say definitely spend the majority of your time in Maui and just pop in to Honolulu if you want to do the touristy things like the pineapple maze at the Dole Plantation, Polynesian Village (the show and luau at night was awesome!) and see Pearl Harbor (which was really cool and Im not big into historical museums, etc). Honolulu is where we vacationed and it’s very touristy, but still gorgeous and lots of fun. I think as honeymooners you would enjoy Maui better for the majority of your trip 🙂

    • Thanks Ashley! Yeah we’ve heard Honolulu is way more busy and touristy so I’m glad we are only spending a few days there and the majority in Maui. I’ve read about that pineapple maze, it sounds fun! Did you have to rent a car when you were there? We definitely have to for Maui but didn’t think it was really necessary for Honolulu?
