It's going to be four days of me saying, "Holy shitballs, we're in Hawaii!!!" (I might have to take a tally of how often this phrase is said), possibly peeing myself a small amount a few times, and taking a hundred million pictures. 

I'm slightly excited.

Sugarland also filmed "Keep You" in Hawaii- before they shot "All I Wanna Do," and Jennifer Nettles ACTUALLY cut her hair off. That's why it's long in that video, but short in the other.

Have fun. :)
