Hawaii Post 3 – My Date with a Dolphin

I had been waiting pretty much my whole life to do this! I got to swim with dolphins twice on this trip so I was in heaven. The first time I told you about in the first post about Hawaii and it was amazing, but this was totally different because I got to touch her and ride her! It was so fun! We went to Sea Life Park on Oahu and actually got to interact with a bunch of animals, but swimming with dolphins was obviously my favorite! I love them so much!

This is Laka, she is 45 and we got to swim with her two babies too. Check one off my bucket list!!!

Here are just a few pictures of all the fun my Dad and I got to have with the dolphins!SL 38SL 9_2SL 8SL 36_2SL 33_2SL 49SL 50

And here are some more of the animals we got to play with and see!

I don’t know if you guys know how terrified of sharks I am…like literally I was having the worst anxiety about it before the trip. Of course it didn’t help that Shark Week was the week I went and there were two attacks in Hawaii right before I went also. I literally was having panic attacks and sweating over it. I was fine if I was distracted when we were snorkeling, but then I would freak out and have to calm myself down. I realize this is completely embarrassing and irrational, but it’s true. When I was little I used to be afraid that someone put a shark in the pool or in Lake Powell. But in Hawaii I’m pretty sure it’s a legitimate concern. The week after we left there were two more attacks.

I secretly kind wanted to do the shark dive…but we didn’t. They are so interesting to me even thought they scare me so bad.

Instead of the shark dive, we did the ‘Ray Encounter’. They had their stingers still so it was a little dangerous…BUT not really. I guess they don’t sting unless they feel threatened and it’s a last resort. They were really cool though. The way they feel and move is not like any other animal. I was glad we did this one. There were also TONS of fish in the tank, that were eating out of our hands. It was awesome.

And look, I got to swim with a tiny little shark after all! I had a mild freak out when I it at first, but it was small so then I thought it was cool.SL 20

Also, my mom sent me this video to make me calm down about the sharks and I thought it was pretty funny, so enjoy!

So…you all know my love for a great crime show…well this one is a little different. It’s about a serial killer and his following that he gained while in prison. He based his killings on Edgar Allen Poe’s books. It’s crazy. All I can say is that you have to start watching. It’s intense. I’m literally obsessed. I’ve spent the last week catching up and I think there are about 5 more episodes to this first season. I’ve been watching at the gym on my ipad and I’m going to be so sad when I have to wait all summer for next season. I could have watched it all in one sitting, but I made myself spread it out. Anyway, it’s good so I highly recommend. It is a little graphic, because it’s about a serial killer, so there is that. But I was surprised because I do actually like Kevin Bacon in it.

If you ever feel a little bit stupid, just dig this up and read it again; you’ll begin to think you’re a genius…

I was struggling at work today…so here is a laugh for all of you. Enjoy!


(On September 17, 1994, Alabama’s Heather Whitestone was selected as Miss America 1995.)

Question: If you could live forever, would you and why?

Answer: “I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever, then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever,”

–Miss Alabama in the 1994 Miss  USA  contest.


“Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can’t help but cry. I mean I’d love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff.”

-Mariah Carey


“Smoking kills. If you’re killed, you’ve lost a very important part of your life,”

— Brooke Shields, during an interview to become spokesperson for federal anti-smoking campaign


“I’ve never had major knee surgery on any other part of my body.’

–Winston Bennett,  University  of Kentucky  basketball forward.

Hey, It’s OK…

…to check your luggage when traveling. Some of us have needs that can’t fit in an overhead bin.

…to be skeptical of guys who signs his emails “XO”.

…if you consider Chelsea Handler to be our greatest living philosopher.

…to commute in flats, only to get to work and change into…less comfortable flats.

…to think Pandora sometimes might be more in touch with your feelings than you are.

…to only be capable of karaoke-ing after midnight.

…if your version of a cleanse is just making it to brunch without a snack first. Yay!

…to think the “douche-bag jar’ on New Girl is the best prop since Gossip Girl‘s bow headband.

…to say “YOU’RE WELCOME” if you hold the door and the person doesn’t say thank you.

…to wish you could have whatever’s in Kate Middleton’s stocking. Hell, even just what’s in the toe.

…to see a blinking red light in the sky and still think, Rudolph?

…if quirky, ironic holiday sweaters look neither quirky or ironic on you.

…if your boyfriend thinks you don’t wear any makeup. Sweet, naive boy.

Um, Not OK…

… to eat other people’s food from the work fridge. That’s called stealing. From a hungry person! So rude!

…to bail on plans with a friend, then post photos of what you did instead. The rudeness!

These always crack me up so I just thought I’d pass some of my favorites on from the past few months.
