Aloha and thanks for stopping by my piece of Blogland!
My name is Vanessa.
Friends call me Vanessa. Or Vaness. Or Nessa. Or Ness.
But NEVER Van. Ever.
Don’t do it.
I’m a wife and mommy living in the 50th State (Hawaii for those that may not know). I grew up on Maui, attended college in San Diego, CA, and moved to Honolulu for a job. Hopefully we'll find ourselves back on Maui someday.
I love a good book and a big glass of wine (Cabernet is my favorite but any red will do). Oh, and coffee! Love me some coffee. And chocolate. And cheese.
I’m a highly sensitive and emotional creature and struggle every single day to keep that all in check (coming soon: the story of when I cussed out my neighbor with my son on my hip.)
Also? Very very very insecure.
I’m socially awkward and suffer from Open-Mouth-Insert-Foot Syndrome (OMIF). I somehow manage to insult everyone at least once (like that one time I told a co-worker her outfit was so last year).
But that is never my intention!
Like I said, I’m just awkward.
I write about my attempts at fitness and weight loss, crafts and organization via Pinterest, food I enjoy (as well as wine!), my attempts to dress my body, and my life as a full time working mama. Just a little bit of everything, I guess.
So pull up a chair and cup of coffee (or tea)/glass of wine and stay awhile.
E Kipa Mai Ia’u!
(visit with me!)
