I'm leaving the ice and going somewhere warm!!!


Hi guys, thanks for all the nice comments on my last post. My Nanny did have some beautiful things, I forgot to mention the column with the urn next to the mirror was hers too. I sure do miss her! I enjoyed seeing what's on your walls too! I will definitly be participating again.


Sunday I will be leaving this cold weather and heading to Maui! I can't wait! Chase especially can't wait, he's never been on an airplane so he's excited about that too. It's an 8 hr. flight, so I bet he will get tired of it pretty quick. lol! He is bringing plenty to do...including homework! Several months ago Lynette tagged me for 5 things I've always wanted to do and one of them was to go to Hawaii. I also mentiond that my parents were going in Feb. and I was hoping they would take us with them, well......they are! My brother and his wife are going too. This will definitly be the trip of a lifetime and I will take lots of pics! I wish you all could come with me! Hubby is taking the computer so maybe I will do a post while I'm there.


My Etsy store will be on hold for a week, but you can drop me an e-mail if your interested in something and I will ship it out when I get back.

Thanks again to mom and dad for taking us on this awesome trip!!!

Hi - I saw the title of your post on another blog and wanted to stop by and let you know that we came back from Maui on Tuesday night. The weather is beautiful. It was sunny the entire time - around 80 degrees. There are tons of whales. We probably say 15-20 while we were there.

Have a great time!!!

It's been a few years since we were there and I wish I could say I was headed back right now.
Have fun in the sun and don't forget to go on a whale watch, especially at this time of year when they have migrated there.
Can't wait to see pics.
