Aloha! {home from hawaii}

Aloha, y'all!  My vacation is over, and I'm back from paradise.....




Back to commuting, computing and counting down each day til the weekend. But....for 7 sweet days in Hawaii, Mr W and I hung pretty loose.....


After a day at the beach on Hanalei Bay

We ate well, drank well....




read alot, and saw many amazing sights...including everyone's boyfriend, Mr. George Clooney (more on him and how I came "this close" to being his co-star later....).

George between takes of his new movie, The Descendants

Everything that you've ever heard about how brutal the flight from the East Coast to Hawaii is is true.


We traveled for 12-ish hours, and the jet lag from the 6-hour time difference upon landing had us waking nearly every morning at 3am.   Still, the long trip was well worth it, because everything you've ever heard about how beautiful these islands are is also true.

We were on Kauia, the Garden Isle....


Everywhere you turned, the view was breathtaking. It was so peaceful....save for these guys.

I named all the roosters Bret Michaels because of their fabulous hair

Roosters and chickens were everywhere - they'd take food right out of your hand, and not because you were offering it...they were just that bold as I (and my stolen piece of mahi) can attest! And the cock-a-doodle-doing - nonstop....

Later this week I'll be blogging about some of the fun things we did - a luau (which I'd heard would be silly and cliche and proved to be fantastic), yummy restuarants, an amazing helicopter tour, the and of course, Clooney....so I hope you'll come back for a peak at my virtual postcards.

I promise..this is the only shot of me in a bikini you'll have to endure -

Aloha is right!! Amazing photos. You should sell that Clooney close-up to TMZ and pay for your trip! Had no idea about the roosters and chickens... you learn something every day.
