Back home from hospital

A little bump in the road last week with an unexpected visit to the emergency room. A few days and a laparoscopic appendectomy later, I'm home safe and sound albeit a little sore and sorry for myself.

I am so thankful for the lovely friends that helped out with the kids and others that offered. It's so reassuring to know that you have others to lean on when you are in need.

Here are some more Hawaii photos to brighten my day. P.S. Wishing I was still in Hawaii at the moment!



A few trips to the Lego shop at Ala Moana made for some happy kids.


A few trips to RL made for a happy Mamma!!


I loved this adorable children's settee at Ralph Lauren.


My own little 'ralph girl' at breakfast. She hardly took her new dress off.

This is where we spent every afternoon.


  1. Oh Shanel - sounds like a rough week - hope you are on mend! When you are feeling up to it let me know how your online shop is going and how I get my hands on those bottles!! Leanne

  2. I'm glad your appendix had the decency to wait until you were back from Hawaii before it played up! I hope you're all better now.

  3. Glad to hear you are on the mend!

    Dont you just want to move into that Ralph store? All that is missing is the Martha Stewart nickle bed and I'd be set!

  4. Sorry to hear you have had a rough week. glad you are home and resting. The photo's from Hawaii are wonderful :)

  5. Sorry to hear you've had a rubbish week. It's lovely you have such good friends to rally round you though! And it was definitely good this didn't happen while you were in Hawaii!

  6. Sorry to hear about last week... love the photos you share, you captured such great moments!

  7. Oh my ~ so sorry to hear about your surgery. I hope you are doing much better. I will keep you in my prayers. At least you have fresh memories of Hawaii!! :)


  8. Sharnel what magic photo's. I am still saving my frequent flyer points for Hawaii....almost there!

  9. You poor thing, what a week! I have had my appendix out after collapsing from the most unbelievable pain, so I feel for you honey!

    Your children are as gorgeous as ever, and you know how I feel about Ralph xx
