I felt like this was as good a time as any to launch my blog because we just got back from an amazing trip to Hawaii with our best friends. We left our kids at home (in great hands) and spent a week in Maui and it was so good! So here is the recap of our trip.
We stayed at the Four Seasons Resort Maui and I cannot say enough good things about this resort! The customer service, amenities, and food were just amazing! We checked in and were greeted with ginger lemonade and fresh pineapple. We quickly dropped our luggage off in our room and left to explore the resort. Both couples had complimentary champagne in our rooms for our anniversaries (we are both celebrating 6 years this spring/summer). That was such a thoughtful touch.
That night we all ate at Spago which was a restaurant at the resort. We were all exhausted but the food was so good and a great way to kick off the week.
This is the view from our room. On the first morning we sat on the balcony drinking espresso and just took in the beautiful view. We also saw whales that morning!
We woke up really early on the first day because-jet lag. Michaela and I went for a run and the views were just incredible!
This was our first full night and also the night of the Luau. We were all really excited about this but as we were walking from the Four Seasons to the Grand Wailea, where the Luau was held, it started to sprinkle. We didn’t want to risk getting wet, so Michaela and I decided to go to our rooms and get the umbrellas (Thanks Four Seasons for thinking of everything). We met back in the lobby and were walking to the Luau when we came across a pop-up champagne and oyster bar. The waiter asked us if we wanted to try a glass so we decided to be spontaneous and go for it! It was the best champagne either of us have had and look at that view. The guys gave us a hard time for being late to the Luau (according to the schedule, we weren’t late, but they started early) and also for the price of the champagne. Walking back from the Luau the guys got to sample the champagne we had and ended up buying a bottle. It was that good!
We took this trip with our best friends, Zach and Michaela, and it was truly the best week! This is us before the Luau on Saturday night.
The next day we hit the Shops at Wailea. We shopped for most of the morning and then had Tommy Bahamas for lunch. After lunch, the guys were shopped out so the girls headed up to Lahaina for a little more shopping. We had a great time exploring and the drive was absolutely beautiful.
That’s it for part one of the recap. I’ll post part two soon!
