Aloha. Hello and good-bye. Very appropriate today, since I am just popping in to say “hello” before I take off again. David and I, along with some longtime friends and their spouses, are heading off to Hawaii for a friend’s wedding on the Big Island. We will be gone for a little over a week, so the blog will remain untouched for a few more days. But when we come back in September, the blog will go back to normal and I will resume the schedule of posting daily! But for now, let’s focus on Hawaii. That’s much more fun at the moment.

Last night I decided that I would do a quick search on Pinterest for Hawaii images, and whatever picture came up first would be THE picture I used for this post. And here is it. Elvis Presley in Blue Hawaii. Although, this picture isn’t very Hawaiian (minus the leis and the ukulele, of course), I figured this would be okay for now because my plan is bombard you with four bazillion pictures of our trip when I get home. I hope you like hibiscus flowers.

Speaking of Blue Hawaii, let’s discuss movies. My only frame of reference of Hawaii comes from movies. So, I’d like to watch a few more on the plane to continue my research. And it’s a long plane ride. I’ve seen A Very Brady Sequel, Honeymoon in Vegas, Garfield in Paradise, 50 First Dates, Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style, and Blue Crush to name a few. Any others I should see? Maybe a few that didn’t come out when I was in the 7th grade?

How about any recommendations on things I should do in Hawaii? Or see? Or eat? Or drink? Anything. Any advice and/or suggestions would be great. And then there is what to wear? Even though I’ve been buying tropical clothes like a richkidofinstagram, I still feel under prepared.

So, let’s talk Hawaii.

    All Keanu Reeves movies should count as Hawaiian since he is Hawaiian and his name translates to “Cool Breeze Over the Mountains.” So… Point Break?
