Aloha - Day Four

I didn't have a lot of excitement today....I spent it just lounging around.  Steve went golfing with a bunch of guys - so I was on my own.  My first stop was the breakfast buffet!  I gorged myself on fresh fruit, pancakes, bacon and pastries!  This is a picture of the dining can sit right next to one of the many streams that run through the resort and watch the fish while you eat.


You ever have one of these bad hair days?  I do - but I'm glad it isn't every day!!!


These birds live on little islands throughout the resort.  They must be afraid of water, because they don't ever leave their area.


After breakfast - I headed to the Kings' Shops for a little window shopping....even that was expensive - LOL!  I found a pair of cute little leather sandals, tried them on - like them - until I turned them over and they were $144....then I put them back and continued on..... When I was done with the "shopping" - I headed back to the resort and laid by the pool for a while....such an exhausting day! LOL


Here is the torch runner guy....this photo is for those of you with an appreciation for a nice body (like myself) - this guy doesn't have an ounce of fat on him.  He runs the entire resort every evening with a torch and lights all the Tiki Torches - leaping over the little chain guards like a gazelle!  It is truly an enjoyable site!!!!  And he blows on one of those big sea shells - it's almost like the noon bell in Menasha!  I should suggest to our Mayor that we have a hot guy like this run around the city to announce that bell!




Here's our little presents for the day!  The Sarong is a Hawaiian tradition and that was delivered to my room from SU!  Then I went to spin the Prize Wheel and won the Designer Hardware - I was VERY excited - I didn't have this one yet!!!!  Last but not least - I got this Decor Elements - Stampin' Up! Island Girl!!!!  They also gave everyone a NEW pack of Designer Series Paper - I go the one called Flock Together!


After such an exhausting day - we made reservations at the Plantation restaurant for dinner.  Started that off with a Pina Colada for myself and a Mai Tai for Steve.  He mentioned this morning that you have to watch those Mai Tai's  cuz they'll knock you on your butt...I did notice that!


I finally got my Lobster!!!!!!  Dinner was a lean $177...probably because they had to fly that lobster in from Maine...and with the price of airline tickets these days......


Another breathtaking sunset to cap off the evening!


I LOVE this time's right up my alley!  I was up until midnight (Hawaii time) - which is 5 am at home....and didn't rise this morning until 7:30 (Hawaii time) - 12:30 there...I LOVE this!!!!

Watch later today for some pictures from the SU Share last night.  A bunch of demonstrators bring GREAT projects to share with everyone - we gather in a room and take pictures and watch's super fun!
