It’s Saturday and Mac and I just spent the afternoon hanging out in his dad’s board shop in Waikiki.  Mac loves to be anywhere his dad is and the surf shop is especially exciting with all the surf instructors, music, visitors and activity.  Gracie, James’ bulldog, hangs out at the shop most days which makes Mac very happy, too.

The shop’s grand opening went great Thursday night.  Big turn out, lots of cool folks came by, lots of great food and drink and Ty was simply stoked.   I was so happy to see him so happy and thank all of you for your good wishes and support.    

I’ve got a fun contest planned giving away some of Ty’s shop’s surf gear and party swag bags so keep an eye out for the blog post which should be coming  soon with pics, news, and some killer giveaways.  And until then, enjoy your weekend and know that Ty and I are so grateful to have you all as friends!



  1. So glad the opening went well and you’re enjoying your time in Hawaii. Mac is still as cute as can be! Looking forward to future updates on Ty’s success. I’d love to get to Hawaii one of these days and test out my surf skills (which are probably non-existant haha). Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  2. I can’t believe how big Mac is getting! He is simply adorable! Glad to hear the opening was a success and you guys had a great time! I bet you’re exhausted!

  3. OK so when I think of myself trying to surf, I think of Flirting With Forty and the hilarious description of your first surfing lesson on land.. That was one of my all time favorite parts of a book and keeps me laughing every time I re-read it. Glad the grand opening was a success and your Mac is totally adorable
