today started well, but quickly ended in disaster.
to give you a quick recap, my family and I are staying in the south of kauai.  we like to go on dangerous adventures.  we toss caution to the wind for the sake of a good time. 

this is a breadfruit tree.  I was not wearing appropriate shoes for climbing trees and other such nonsense.

these are jackfruit.

and this, my friends, is an abandoned mansion!

I stepped on a nail as long as my index finger, and it went up into my foot.  my shoe quickly filled with blood, and I had to go to the emergency room.  the second to last picture was taken right after stepping on said nail, which is why I look like I want to murder you.


  1. Oh my gosh!!! How painful that must have been!!! Hopefully the worst is over! :(

    PS I am seriously jealous of how you always seem to find such interesting places to take pictures. I love it! And am loving all the posts lately!


  2. Oh no! I hope your foot heals soon!! ps. love the blog!


  3. awww i hope you are ok :(

    and when are you moving down to LA?

  4. Ouch! Hope you're feeling better! To answer your question, my necklace is SUPER lightweight...and awesome! Thanks for the comment! Great blog!

  5. Oh Gosh!! This is terrible! But the cool pics and the little adventure worth it!! I hope you're ok now! :)

  6. ahh, that sounds so painful! sorry girl!
    this post really makes me miss palm trees though!

  7. OMG. I hope you're okay.

    Kauai is the favorite out of all of the islands. I like that it's less developed than the rest of them. And plus I think the roosters running around everywhere is pretty entertaining.

    Hope you have a fun and safer rest of the trip!

    xx THE CHEAP

  8. That must have been shocking!!!!
    Omg I don't even want to think about it..

  9. OH MY GOODNESS. I hope you're okay! Damn, just reading about the nail going through your foot sent shivers down my spine. Be more careful!!

  10. oh i hope that you are okay!! good wishes sent your way! i was just in kauai a few months back and it rained half the time ~ it was still gorgeous though... ;) feel better soon!! p.s. if you haven't already tried, you must have the shave ice w. azuki beans and sweet condensed milk!!!

  12. Oh you poor thing! Look at what a sport you are - allowing photographs in the hospital! And blogging is what got you into this mess in the first place! Your passion is inspiring! For what it's worth, the abandoned mansion shots are super-cool! Take care of yourself and have a fabulous time with your family!

  13. omg, that's terrible! I hope you're okay now. But those shots pre-ER were really good.
