A Very Happy Life

Enjoying life to the fullest and occasionally blogging about it

Oh hey remember when I was all “The leaves are so pretty! I love fall!” up until about 3 hours ago?  Yeah.  Forget I ever said that.  I’ve been raking and bagging leaves for hours now and they still won’t stop falling and my grass is going to die and my back is killing me and I want to collapse and I HATE ALL THOSE LEAVES NOW!

I’m finally uploading all of my pictures from Hawaii and I love all of them.  Here is a little sampling of some of the gorgeous flowers and trees we saw while we were there.

A brief, unsolicited movie review from yours truly:
I liked this movie.  The story was cute and the visuals were stunning. Lighthearted entertainment.  I’d recommend it.

WHOA!  When did prescription glasses get SO expensive?!  It’s been quite a while since I last bought glasses and so I went to a Lens Crafters today to look at frames (because I really like trying on ALL the frames).  Um… the cheapest ones they were trying to sell me would be well over $500 after the lenses?  No.  No, sir.  No. 
Back to Warby Parker I go.  I can’t believe I ever thought of going somewhere else!  Mail me my frames to try on and give me those crazy cheap prices!  How did we live before Warby?!

Autumn has definitely arrived at the Mack house.  It’s like we have a confetti canon constantly blowing up in our yard, except instead of shooting out tinsel it shoots out a steady stream of red leaves.  All that leaf confetti is actually quite beautiful, I just hate thinking of the amount of raking I’ll have to do (which will probably have to happen tomorrow—womp womp). 

Basically: SEASONS!  Something this Texas native still freaks out over every year!

What is the point of making a reservation at the DMV (which I did) if they’re just going to tell you it will be a 2+ hour wait (same as walk ins)?!

So irritated right now, mostly at myself for losing my ID. What a pain.

These autumn leaves aren’t exactly the same tropical view I’d gotten used to all last week, but they’re just as gorgeous.

Jeff has already unpacked, repacked, and left for the airport AGAIN (heading to a conference in Vegas this afternoon).

I’ve only managed to unpack at this point and the fluffies are boycotting me even considering going anywhere. Sadie in particular is making it known that I am NOT allowed to put anything back in my suitcase.

Goodbye, Hawaii! Thanks for a wonderful week! We hate to leave!!

Soooooo I lost my driver’s license today. And I have been bumming out about it all afternoon and basically freaking out…

BUT, if I don’t have an ID for airport security does this mean I can just stay in Hawaii forever and not fly home tomorrow?

I just went zip-lining!

Put a big ol’ check mark next to that item on the bucket list. ☑️
