Happy 137th Birthday!

Don't rompers make you feel like a kid again!?  I love them.

{romper - F21, sandals - Old Navy, sunnies - "Raybon", ha ha drugstore}


Pooma got a haircut last week.  Her purple color is almost gone.  Not sure if I want to color them again.  Picked up some of that Apple Bitter Spray... it's sort of working.  She runs when she sees us coming with the bottle.  Hee hee.


Yesterday we went to Local Boy's West and enjoyed some ono (yummy) shave ice!! (yes, locals in Hawaii call it "shave ice" as opposed to shaved ice, well most of us do).  There's quite a few shave ice places on the island, but today was the first day we both tried Local Boy's.  They give you a complimentary scoop of vanilla ice cream on the bottom and you can even add other things like, mochi balls and azuki beans.  I added the mochi balls.  I got to choose three flavors... guava, mango, and dreamsicle... and to add to the sugar rush they top it off with a drizzle of Kauai Cream! Oh la la.  Oh man, that shave ice was pretty awesome! Um, and yes it was shared.  :)


We played tourist and visited Lahaina Town's famous landmark, the Banyan Tree!

 
Yesterday it celebrated it's 137th Birthday (planted back in 1873).  There was birthday cake, games, artists, crafters, and activities for the keiki.  There were even clowns!  I got a quick picture with them before they got to the festivities.


Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

Love, S

sharon! i LOVE that romper and i totally did not see that one at my forever 21, b/c if i did, i would have bought it too, hehe! i did buy a black one from tjmaxx the other day though but it hasn't been warm enough for me to wear it yet, the warm weather needs to come faster here in kansas city!! =)

and omg, i think i must have drooled all over my keyboard while i was reading the description of your shaved ice... mochi balls are the best and those flavors you got all sound sooo good! and i don't know what kauai cream is... but i loved kauai and i LOVE cream so i bet it is amazing hehe!!

happy 137th birthday banyan tree, i've actually visited that tree before! hope your weekend is going well and you have an awesome week sharon!

I really like your romper! I recently just got one too, but it's plain black. lol Not nearly colorful as yours. hahah That shaved iced sure does look good! I love eating shaved ice especially during the summer time. It is so refreshing. =] Thanks for the comment on my blog.

Jodes said...

aw, your weekends are always the cutest. i am officially only reading blogs from hawaii to convince me that even though i have been away from home almost two years, i still have enough nomad in me to live there for awhile.
that romper is completely adorable - but when are you not?!
you should totally do Pooma purple again - she was so cute!

Shop T.O. Live said...

Yes. The blue romper is adorable, and very playful.

And that giant serving of shaved ice looks delicious and I will definitely be thinking about that all summer.

Alely L. said...

love rompers! however, i'm just a little too old to wear it : ). my daughter has a few and they are so cute!

Alely L. said...

and OMG...shaved ice...oh how i miss u so. vanilla ice cream with azuki beans rock! i haven't had one since we last visited the islands. funny thing is, we actually had a family from hawaii who had a shaved ice store here in our town but he only served it hoale style. no ice cream, no beans, no mochi balls. unfortunantly, i passed by a few days ago and they were closed.

Robyn said...

Rompers do make me feel like a kid! In the best way possible of course. This one is so pretty. Love the color on you, and the ruffle neckline.

Love your romper and sweet pictures with your pup!! You're soo cute and I remember eating shave ice on Guam as a kid. You make me wanna visit Hawaii!!

haute.teapot said...

Haha, got your comment, please let me!! I'm trying to make my way back to Guam maybe at the end of the summer, have tons of family there. ;) I really want to find a way to live on Hawaii though, I feel like it'd be the perfect combination of island lifestyle and beautiful surroundings with the ease of getting to the mainland without breaking the bank!

Angie said...
