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!

Today I’m headed for Los Angeles. I am so looking forward to my 24 hour layover there!

Girlie Girl has been bugging me to take her to the zoo. Since today is a holiday and she’s not in school, I figured it would be the perfect time to go.  Her favorite animal was the monkey.

Today we decided to spend a quiet relaxing day at the park. Thank goodness the weather has cleared up nicely!
