I did everything I could do to get it back, but in case you weren't aware, Instagram barely exists anymore since it was bought by Facebook. There is no email you can write to or customer service at all. So, although I tried a ton of things, it was pretty apparent that it was gone for good.

Birthday Week Giveaway - Day 4!


Rain delay all the way in Kauai yesterday!! Betcha didn't know I was a poet, did you?

We didn't have much on tap for yesterday anyway, so we hunkered down in the morning to watch the Pac-12 Basketball Tournament online and then snuck out of the hotel for some AMAZING Hawaiian plate lunch. Pork with cabbage and Maui onions - so good!!!  Then some drinkey-poos and more basketball. It was heaven.

But enough about me - let's talk about what's in it for you today!
