14 Favorite Posts from 2014

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

Guys - I'm actually posting a #trending type post, when it is actually trending! :-)  I haven't done a round up in quite a while so it seems only natural to close out the year with my top fourteen favorite posts from 2014!  Let's get this party started...

1) That time I came back to blogging and LOST 23 POUNDS after the horror that we'll call the 2013 breakup...

2) When I finally figured out the difference between happiness and joy!

 3) When I shared that even though someone may be head over heels for you, doesn't mean you should stop be head over heels for yourself as well!

4) A little catch up on life!

5) On controlling your tongue.

6) I was cravings for sprinkle cookies and couldn't find any in the store, so I made my own!

7) When I decided to get fancy and decorate a planter! PS: The plant is still living!!!

8) When I needed something to blog about and came up with an HONESTLY list, to celebrate National Honesty Day!

9) Because this blog hasn't been a big priority this year and yall needed something to do while I got my act together - uh which hasn't happened yet!

10) 20 Things you might not have known about me...

11) My six secrets to keeping lifelong friendships

12) Taking a little ownership and embracing my bass

13) Learning from the past and loving better!

14)  A word to the wise - thinking out loud.

 And there you go... my favorite posts from 2014!  I hope I can churn out better and more fulfilling content in 2015.  I think doing this exercise and going through my posts from the past year really got my gears going as far as what I'd like to accomplish with this blog in 2015 and where I'd like to go from here!! Stay tuned because 2015 is going to be very exciting!! :)

Happy New Year! (again) :)

xoxo, Aukele

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of resting.  I’m just super fatigued and all I want to do is sleep sleep sleep!!!  Christmas was really great!  Started a little too early for my liking – um where is the sun? But, I wouldn’t have had it any other way  :) <3.  Watching the kids find out they were going to Disneyland was a definite highlight of the day, but of course you all know my highlight had to of been spending some QT time with that special guy.  Don't forget to follow my instagram to see all the latest happenings!

On Saturday I was able to take Kaimana to the “dirty dog garage” so he could get a nice warm bath in a temperature controlled environment.  He was way dirty, and the Aiea winds just did not let up.  I also went to the farmers market to pick up some haulolo, green papaya and other veggies I needed to make Chicken Papaya – a local favorite that was perfect for the cool weather.

Speaking of cooking, lately I’ve been on a kick in the kitchen.  Chicken Pasta, Steamed Moi, Chicken Papaya, Pork Chops, Guacamole, Breakfast Burritos.  I need to do something with bananas tonight before they go bad – so if you have any suggestions…. Holler at a girl!

This week I’m just gearing up for another exhausting week with early wake up calls, but thankfully next week we’ll be back to normal and back to the normal routine – which I CANNOT wait for!! PLUSSSSSS that means it’ll be January and I’ll be that much closer to my big reveal I can’t wait to share with you all still.  Like literally I’m itching to put it all out there, but just a few more weeks or so!

HAUOLI MAKAHIKI HOU!!! (Happy New Year)!  Be safe my friends, see you in 2015!

Oh Hi There!

Monday, December 22, 2014

And then I had promised you all a whole bunch of Christmas posts this season and where in the heck did the time go?  Slipped right from under me into who knows what.  That’s where it went.

This month has been so busy and I’ve been so tired, I’m literally ready to knock out at one-thirty in the afternoon – but you know there is this thing called work, and that long drive home in traffic, and then making dinner and yada-yada.  I wish I could say I’d be able to sleep in on Christmas, but there is no rest for the weary.  I think that’s the line anyway.

I’m in a rush to push out 4 scarves before Christmas.  Doubt it’ll happen though.  A bunch of my family is taking a trip to Disneyland and so I wanted to send them all with scarves – but then that exhaustion just takes over all-day Saturday and that time thing, right?

We went to the beach yesterday, which was nice since today is cloudy and rainy.  The water was FREEZING!!!  Literally we were in there for two minutes and out.  Good thing the sun was out and we warmed up rather quickly.  

2015 can’t get here any sooner.  I’m literally waiting for it to be the New Year already.  One of my friends is moving back home, so I’m excited about that.  And then the middle of January is just going to be one big celebration and a big reveal coming, which I’m literally on the edge of my seat waiting to tell all of you!  

Merry Christmas everyone!!! Have a fabulous week.

This quote... Because I went through a bit of a storm a couple of weeks ago, but MORNING! It comes!  You just got to wait for it.  And life couldn't be any better.

My favorite cake is Dobash!  However, this one looks really damn good!  Usually I'm a frosting girl to the fullest, but this cake looks so decadent and chocolatey I need it right now :)

Thinking Out Loud

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

This blog has always been a reflection of my life.  I’ve loved sharing fun stories with you over the past year and a half and the experiences I’ve gone through.  There are some really exciting things that will be happening in 2015 that I would love to share with you all – but sometimes life calls for a bit of privacy, especially to protect the ones you love most and that mean the most to you.  So purposefully – for a while, this blog will be a bit vague.  And while I hate it and really want to gush a thousand details to you all, just know that one day I’ll be a free bird again!

To the friends that I’ve made blogging that are reading this – please feel free to email me anytime and we can definitely catch up on life and chit-chat.  Because you know.. I’m a girl.  And we love sharing in the details.

This is by no means sayonara.  It’s just more of a cutting back on having to share the details of my personal life for a little while for all the world to see.

With that said, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! I hope you all have a wonderful season.  It’s already been incredible for me.

And on an up note. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS SONG!!!  You need to go and listen to it pronto!

And.. here is the official video...
