    You'd never know by looking at this pic that shortly after it was taken I thought about throwing this cutie patootie off the cliff. The #kalalautrail is one if the top ten most dangerous hikes in the world. It is not for the faint of heart nor should it be taken lightly. It is 11 miles in and 11 miles out- a total of 22 miles. It takes roughly between 1 to 2 hours to do a mile. If you're not going down a hill, you're going up one. With all that said, I was ready and gung ho. Alas, poor Chucklebutt apparently did not eat his Wheaties that morning and got heat exhaustion and uber sick. For a moment I thought about throwing him overboard and doing it myself but I realized I'd miss him too much. We have a plan for next time- start before sunrise to beat the heat. Come back in January. As it is now, the #KalalauTrail is my nemesis and remains at the top of my #bucketlist. #NapaliCoast #kauai #myectomorph

    I found out last weekend that my cousin has cancer. I sent her a care package today with some fun stuff to pamper herself and some games to play with her nine year old daughter. I made the house using Alice in Wonderland paper. I thought it only fitting since a cancer diagnosis definitely sends you down the rabbit hole. #cancersucks #downtherabbithole

My great-great-great-great (there may be a few more greats thrown in for good measure) grandfather was from Ireland. He immigrated to the United States in the mid-seventeen hundreds and his name was Joseph Gibson. Here’s to Papa Joe!

I discovered this today and laughed my booty off.

Chucklebutt discovered something amazing in our garden:
