Next vacation…

Hawaiian LeiHawaiian LeiI know we just returned from vacation (and had an absolutely fabulous time!), but this weekend, we were talking with friends when we went camping and they showed us their pictures from their honeymoon in Hawaii. Wow! Am I jealous!!!

I would LOVE to go to Hawaii! Of course, you need a lei if you’re going to Hawaii and I found a quick easy way to make one before you go with flowers you’ll find at your local store. . . Carnations! You simply string each flower through the center on a fairly thick thread. String them loose enough so that they green bases can be seen and you’ll use about 30 flowers in a 40″ lei. If you string them tight enough that the green bases are hidden by the next flower, you’ll need about 50 flowers for a 40″ lei.

I did some searching and actually found some very, very reasonable vacation home rentals in Maui that are gorgeous! Since we swam with dolphins while we were in Florida, the Ocean Front Dolphin Bay Home really caught my eye! The description says it’s a spectacular oceanfront home where you can experience breathtaking sunrises, cascading rainbows, and most importantly for us… dolphin and whale watching from the comfort of the Alohahouse!

*sigh* A girl can dream, can’t she???
