picture from my favorite reading spot.

Lil confession to make. Spent a week in Hawaii with my loverboy :-)

It's interesting that we went to Hawaii - it was never a place that I fantasized about visiting. It just kind of happened. We were invited by some friends...found $300 round trip airline tickets...and before we knew it we were drinking Mai Tais in Waikiki.

Interesting place, Waikiki. The skyline was sky scrapers, the eateries include The Cheesecake Factory, Margaritaville, and Senor Frogs...the shopping included Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and several Coach shops. Little tiny strip of water...a few palm trees...tons of people. TONS! Not exactly what I had pictured.

Despite the fact that we were actually tourists in what appeared to be the biggest tourist trap in the entire world - we had quite an adventure. I took a hula lesson! And went snorkeling! And wore a flower in my hair everyday.

Not to mention, I added to my collection of freckles.


  1. what a great vacation before you head off for your whirlwind adventure!

  2. My guy and I did the same thing in April! lol We were living in BC and getting increasingly tired of the cold. I just randomly did a travelocity search for airfare to Hawaii one day, saw the magically $300 price tage, turned to Jacob and said, "Wanna go to Hawaii?" lol We spent about 4 days in Oahu snorkeling, horseback riding, hiking, and moped-ing around the island. It was FANTASTIC!
