Kara has been in Hawaii for awhile........let's say she has never taken a vacation for this long. An opportunity, so their little family took off across the Pacific to escape cold weather in Ohio. This is from her point of view,

I'm feeling a little odd with all this time on my hands, I'm used to a schedule.....instead no appointments, no working, no telemarketing calls, no nothing except for sunny skies, waves, tropical plants and fresh pineapple. I need to just relax. We now have a better Internet connection so I'm catching up on blog land!

Check out "tongue in cheek's" matchmaking story, click on our links to the right of page. Corey has been entertaining us all with this charming tale.

I have not found any antique stores here and I don't suppose hula skirts, Maui postcards, t-shirts & island souvenirs will find it's way into McMaster & Storm! Don't worry Darcy I won't show up with those bobble head hula girls that sit on your dashboard. Your business partner has not lost her marbles on this vacation!

Darcy has been at home orchestrating our e-commerce website, this has been a goal of ours for awhile and will be great to see this happen.

I did visit a shopping center to see what the bigger retailers were showcasing for Spring. Banana Republic has this Vera scarf meets Kelly Wearstler for their spring 2008. I love this sale window at BCBG. I love the stacked boxes with the different font types, right up my alley.

Oh, I'm just a wee bit jealous! What a dreamy place to be right now! The last time my husband and I went to Hawaii was fourteen years ago. Guess it is time to revisit the idea of a tropical vacation!

Enjoy every minute. In fact, enjoy a few extra ones for me, please?
