In search of adventure

My inner child suggested that we go out and play today.  I put on my shiniest ballet flat and headed out the door, in search of an adventure.  As a child, I always wanted a swing set, especially a wood swing set!  I knew the perfect place to go... the park at Giggle Hill in Haiku.  Unfortunately, I didn't make it there because it started to rain... definitely not ideal for playtime fun at the park.  Well, I was still able to get some things done. Got some fabric for the fashion show, Pooma got her hair did, and I scored Peeps!  Yes, I'm a Peeps fan... sugar in sugar in sugar.  Yum-o.  Did you and your inner child do anything fun today?

Did I mention that it's still whale season here in Hawaii?  It's something I love about our "winter" season.  Today, I saw one breach three times in a row!  And I even saw a baby and it's mama playing together and showing off their tails.  I still get giddy anytime I see a whale. They are such amazing creatures.  I also love their whale song... it's so magical. :)  Is there anything you absolutely love about your winter time in your part of the world?

Oh my god, you're sooooo lucky to see whales just like that! I'd have to hop on a cruise ship for experiences like that. Wow.

And well, it's peeps season! I like it during Easter only. All other times of the year, I forget about it haha!

I always wanted a swing set...Wood or metal. I would have taken either.

So jealous of whale watching season. Matt and I haven't visited during that season, but really need to. Cute dress S!

CUTE! And I'm in awe that there is a place called Haiku--that's the sweetest thing I've ever heard. :)

I love the days when you just feel like "playing". And that you have a place called "Giggle Hill"... that's awesome.

That dress is really cute, by the way! Is it strapless?

(And in response to your comment: I have been doing well! I'm in my last semester of school so I've just been totally in a procrastinating mood, which has somehow spilled over onto the blog. I really need to get myself going again on that one! Thanks for dropping by to ask :-) Hope all is well with you guys.)

It's winter here until about the end of April. Then the rainy season starts, and then the blooms come out for about a week, and then summer in full swing. Nasty 90F, humid full swing. UGH.

I love that blazer, it's so perfect and playful.

ADORBS. You need to take me to the best thrifting places in Hawaii. I'll need it. We'll be on a shoe-string budget when we move to Honolulu. Blargh.

Realistically speaking, we will be there in less than 11 months. Feel like showing us around?

If we have an apartment when you visit, you can stay with us!

Joey said...

You have whale season??! Oh, you lucky, luck girl!! I'm so jealous! I really want to fly over now and watch them and hear their whale song. I know it's not nearly as exciting, but I once saw dolphins swimming in the wild and the experience was absolutely amazing! It's just so very different seeing animals in their natural habitat, rather than caged up in a zoo. Man, I must go to Hawaii one day

Joey said...

Ah, was too excited about the whales.
Love your dress and that blazer's such a lovely colour. Nice find!

Cute dress!! And your dog is ADOREABLE!! What breed?

Youa said...

Hi Sharon!

OMG. I love your dog!!! :)

I've been to HI during whale season and it's amazing. :) The dolphines are my favorite though. One time we were out on a boat whale watching and the when we came back to shore the dolphines followed us back. It was super cool.
