I love checking the mail. You never know what wonderful surprises await you. Look what I found today!


Today was spent doing some yard work.

This is our plumeria tree in the back yard. I love it but it makes such a mess!

We planted it when we first moved into our home 5 years ago. At the time, I had no idea what color the flowers would be. Turned out to be pink! Well, what do you know?

I just love the hotel we stay at in Seattle. They have a business center where I can hook up my digital camera and download my photos. The nice desk clerk even let me use it for free! I should request more of these trips!

Anyway, this morning we drove by the Space Needle and I made my co-worker stop so I could take this photo. Sorry, it’s a little off centered. It was threatening to rain at any moment!

This is a photo of the Air Traffic Controller Tower at the Honolulu International Airport (I’m running out of work type photos to take!).

I’m currently freezing in Seattle. One of my co-workers was kind enough to loan me his laptop for the evening while he went out drinking with the crew. I remember a time when I would have gone, too. I’m such a homebody now!

Isn’t this cookie so cute? I saw it at the bakery today and thought Girlie Girl would love having it for her snack tonight. I also hoped to sneak a little bite myself.

When I showed it to her, guess what she said? “Mommy, it’s so beautiful I can’t eat it!”

Hmmm . . . I wonder if she would notice if I took a bite after she went to sleep?

I spent the day at Ala Moana Shopping Center returning a bunch of things that Baby Bug got for her birthday.

This is a photo of the koi fish pond that the girls always make us stop at. There’s this one white fish that lifts his head completely out of the water when taking a breath! It’s so funny!

We spent the day at the Ko Olina Beach near the Ihilani Hotel.

I’ve never been the beach bunny type but DH is an avid surfer and wants our girls to learn, too. Give me a shady tree and some trade winds and I’m fine!

BTW, if you’re trying to visit An Island Life, it seems like I’m in time out again. I swear I didn’t do anyting wrong! LOL!

Nothing much going on today. This is a photo of the sunrise I saw this morning while driving Girlie Girl to school.

Today I went to Downtown Honolulu to renew my passport for work. Sometimes I really miss my former corporate-type job with all the power lunches and expense accounts. But then again, if I were still there, I wouldn’t be leisurely strolling along the street with Baby Bug on a Thursday afternoon.

I didn’t get a chance to go to Target. However, I was able to have lunch at my favorite restaurant!
