post no. 406 -- it's the little things v. 11

i really didn't expect much of this week to tell you the truth. we've been doing a huge company overhaul at work and that means longgggg days sorting through photos, editing code, and brainstorming every little corner of our new website. so when i got a call half way through the week letting me know my vespa was ready to go, i was over the moon ecstatic.

and let me just tell you how exhilarating it is to speed down the road snapping pictures of the back of your husband's head. i mean really, it's the stuff daredevils thrive off of. 

a couple other things that made my week a little bit better than ordinary... shoe racks - or rather, watching your husband assemble said shoe racks, and then having him organize your entire shoe collection.

...spoiled puppies - jack to be specific. getting not one, but two over-sized bones and an impenetrable chew toy from our building manager who loves her like his own little thing. watching them play together can bring a smile to a spinster's face, i swear.

...& valentines day candy - after munching through half the bag in the last hour i might be barfing rainbows later, but oh boy are they delicious.

what made your list this week?

Aisle to Aloha


  1. Congrats on your vespa! I don't blame you for being excited one bit - I once went to a motorcycle store with an ex to look at bikes (he had a crotch rocket and thought I needed one, too). He wanted me to find one I liked, because I was thinking of trading my car in for something more economical. A few minutes later I came running up to him, so excited, because "I found a really cute motorcycle!" When I took him over to the purple-flower-painted vespa and told him that was the bike I wanted, he just walked away shaking his head. Long story, I know, but thought you might appreciate some like-minded excitement. :-)

    Love your blog, by the way. Great style, very original, and the most important thing: fun! :-)

  2. Is that picture in Waikiki? Cause I swear I've seen that intersection...haha. (I am living on Hickam AFB here in Oahu)

    Anyways... Looks like fun!
