Aloha Kakahiaka - Good Morning

Doesn't saying that just make you want to be in Hawaii right now? Well after the rainy days we have been having I wish I was. Our weather has been less than desirable this week. We are having Monsoon type weather and as I look out the window I can see my patio furniture floating down the backyard! Remember when I said how much I loved rain, well I still do but not downpours for days and days and big white chunks of hail. It sounds like we are being attacked! I thought since the weather outside was not so sunny I would make it sunny inside! I finished my Hawaiian themed upside down tree! So without further ado, drum roll please..........

Take note of my Queen sign, my husband could not believe I put it there and worried I would offend someone! Hmmm, doesn't bother me, you?

Mrs. Claus and Santa taking a much needed vacation!

Okole maluna!: Bottoms up! Cheers!


I think I have 15 flip flop ornaments on this tree!

Can't have a tropical tree without this pink guy!

"Wahine hi'u i'a" - Mermaid

Gotta have the coconut shell bra right?

Isn't this saying so true? "Life is far too short not to have an umbrella in your drink"

Well there you have it, my Kumu nui (Coconut Tree)!
Now I'm going to go and imagine I am by the pool with my Pina Colada,
A hui hou - goodbye, until we meet again!

I LOVE to go to Maui! Thanks to this outstanding economy, I haven't been since January of 2006!! My bedroom is tropical with old vintage pieces that has a big glass slider to my pool. So, I have a lot of time to "pretend" I'm on a tropical vacation!!

Take care, Sue

That tree is AWESOME! Oh my goodness I love! Whenever we have a monsoon season down here we head out in our swimsuits, sing and dance in it and of course I have the camera so that gets totally wet but the pics in the rain are amazing....hopefully it will stop soon cause it does get annoying:) xoxox

That queen sign is too funny. I've never been to Hawaii. Do you feel really sorry for me? I do! Love the tree.

Hi Megan!
That tree is just fabulous!
And how lucky are you, living where you live? Rain or no rain, what a place to call home! :-)


Jennifer said...

That is the coolest tree ever!!! I'm your newest follower!!! Thanks for inviting me over!! You asked me about my love of coupons?!!! There's tons of money saving blogs out there! I love Hip2SAve dot com! I'm sure you could google a blog that covers your grocery stores! I just studied this while I was bored at work and figured it all out! Kinda confusing at first but once you learn you ask yourself why haven't you been doing this all along!

Take care!

Feel free to ask any questions!
