Ok, now the reason I'm sharing all this, I got my Monday Morning Motivator e-mail from Hannah Keeley and I swear, every week it's like she's been spying on me and her messages are directed to me! They are always uplifting and encouraging and sometimes pretty funny too. Here's the part that struck me today:
"[Life's] a process, not a product. There's no joy in letting things remain static. The image is just an illusion. Groceries were not meant to line shelves. Floor were not meant to stay clean. Life is messy, and if you're not getting messy, then you're not really living." then "In every action and in every reaction, we are creating something huge, something great that will last beyond our own lives. The activities that we do as moms, day in and day out, are meant to be impermanent. But what they are building will last forever. "
Well, that sums it up! I highly recommend joining her MMM list, I only get one e-mail a week from her and it's always awesome. Click HERE to sign up! Thanks for making it through this long post!

and how about on the floor?
OR wouldn't it be great in the bathtub?
or on the side of the bathtub?
I wonder if I could fill my whale?
And we must have some on the faucet!
What a lovely hat it would make for Ms. Purple Ducky.

I think you could make a really cute Halloween garland with the same idea, just dangle some chipboard pumpkins or something? I don't know but it got some ideas rolling. Then I saw these: What a cute way to package popcorn for your neighbors or something- it seems like the Target dollar spot always gets cute buckets that would be a good size for something like this. Anyways, I realized last year, that if I plan to get crafty for Christmas I need to start much earlier than December, like July I guess.

Then we had breakfast at Longhi's in Wailea and everything was so good!
There were a lot of places to shop but my favorite mall was Whalers Village in Lahaina. They have a couple really fun stores I haven't seen anywhere else- Cinnamon Girl and Sand People & Sand Kids.
Being in Hawaii, I really wanted to have the Luau experience and Sam's parents said that the Old Lahaina Luau was the best one so we did that and it didn't disappoint! They give you lei's and tropical drinks as soon as you walk in, then you can walk around and see some of the local crafts and listen to a great band. We forgot our camera but luckily there were people taking pictures you could buy.Then there is a huge dinner including the pit smoked pig. If you like seafood you will especially like it. And as many fancy drinks as you can handle- our favorite was the Lava Flow. (ours were virgin of course) After dinner there is dessert and a fun hula show that tells some of the history of the island.
A really awesome show you should see is Ulalena. We took the kids last year and they even enjoyed it. It has beautiful music and amazing dance, and tells some history of the island too. I don't know how many times Larry & Michal have gone but they have to take everyone who comes! We ate at Bubba Gump's over there- which is one of the only restaurants we found that actually has Dr. Pepper so that was a big plus!
Ok, now I think I covered everything! I can get back to the piles of laundry...
