Kauai In Pictures

We are back from our fabulous trip to Kauai and instead of telling you all about it I’m just going to photobomb you with some unshared pictures.






This picture of the chicken (which are everywhere in Kauai) is for my friend Elena to go along with the Hello, Elena series of chicken pictures from Carri.


Last but not least, if you haven’t already seen this picture on Instagram or Twitter here is my latest ink that I got on our last night in Kauai. This makes my 5th tattoo (Hayley’s name is on the other side of my ankle with different flowers).



It was a great 7 days. I’ve got a few more pictures to share of me with my newest travel accessory which will probably be posted sometime next week.

Over at One Martini at a Time we are featuring a Lemon Cosmopolitan Recipe that is easy to make and can serve a crowd.

    It’s amazing where you’ll find chickens just hanging out…like Key West. Kauai.

    Nice tat! Do you have pics of your others?

      I posted a picture a few months back of my Grateful Dead turtle tattoo but that’s it. The rest are still a mystery to my online friends. ;)

    What an awesome trip. I’m so glad you guys had a fabulous time. Kauai is on my bucket list of places to travel for sure. But, now that I hear they have chickens everywhere, I may have to reconsider. ;) Maui didn’t have chickens. Maybe I should just stick to that island.

    BTW, you should have snuck that cock home with you…that and some local grown feed. I hear they drop AMAZING eggs. (the DH has a cousin who is an organic farmer on one of the islands. her eggs sell for $8 a dozen!)

    • Jessica Torres says:

      $8 a dozen? Damn, I wish I would have known that ahead of time. We would have snuck home a bunch of those damn cocks.

    Ahhh…Hawaii, no matter what island makes me wistful. I am so glad you had such a great trip and came back with a tattoo reminder. I love it btw! I have not been to Kauai but your pictures solidified my desire. I have been to Maui x2 and Oahu x1 and am dreaming of going back. Would love to see more pictures!

    • Jessica Torres says:

      Kauai was very relaxing which is why we decided to go there. Everything shuts down around 9pm so I’ve heard it’s a lot different than Maui and Oahu.

  28. What a truly wonderful trip you had! I loved getting to see your pictures!

    • Jessica Torres says:

      I’ve had this tattoo on my list to do since my youngest was born almost 3 years ago but it was hard to put the money towards the tattoo instead of something else and to have time to get it without the kids around. Vacation was the perfect time.

    Such gorgeous photos. I was born in Hawaii. Honolulu specifically but moved to Kansas when I was three. Most of my baby pictures are taken somewhere cool like this. Then, my adolescent pictures were taken in a shitty farmhouse. ;-)
