We took our annual trip to Hawaii mid-March, and this time we hit up both Maui and the Big Island.
We first flew into Maui and stayed the majority of our trip there. Most of the pictures I took were from Maui, so I figured I’d write separate blog posts for the pictures we took on each separate island. Today, I suppose I’ll focus on our Maui trip.
On our first day there, it was a must to hit up the Maui Ocean Center.
There are so many things that make this aquarium worth visiting, but I think my favorite part of this aquarium is the extensive coral. It’s incredible how much coral they have in their tanks considering it takes years and years for it to grow to maturity. Also, the shark exhibit is awesome. They’ve got hammerheads and tiger sharks – super scary!
Stay tuned for more pictures from our trip!
“Sarah, please update your blog.” I keep getting this from family and friends.
Oh my gosh! I’ve become such a horrible blogger, hehe. Hopefully, later this week (if I find the time to post), I’ll post the last two and half months of my life.
Lots has happened since the last time I posted.
Well, it’s been a while since I last posted, but ordering at CHA had me wiped out for a couple of days. Then, it was right back to work for me. I have been so blessed with all of the love I have been getting from our customers since I’ve been back. Seriously, all of the support means so much to me. (Thank you to those who have popped in and supported us!)
As promised, I snapped some random shots from the show.
It was such an organized and chill show for me. We even managed to finish all the ordering in just TWO days, and we ordered more than we have ever before! Plus, we even got to socialize with friends at the show, as well as do the fun make and takes for the shop. I’m super excited about all of the new things that will be going on in the next few months.
I can honestly say that I am truly happy with my life. Does that mean that there aren’t any days where I feel crummy? Of course not! Life isn’t always rainbows and butterflies; that’s just unrealistic. However, when days start to feel cruddy, I remember moments and people that make me smile.
Good memories always put me back in a happy place. It feels great to surround myself among positive people who understand me and the decisions I make. I wouldn’t want life any other way.
As far as creating, I’m in a total slump. I was given a handful of goodies from various companies at CHA, but I haven’t been productive. Someone, please give me my mojo back!
Over the weekend, one of my good friends had her bridal shower. We definitely shared some good laughs from the party, and I can’t wait for her upcoming wedding. It’s going to be so pretty!
Here’s just a few of the pictures I was able to capture:
We played the create a toilet paper wedding dress activity! …and guess what?! My team won. Was it because I work with paper and creativity all day long?!
On another note, back in July/August of last year, I wrote up a 28 Before 28 list. Have I completed it? Nope. However, I have managed to cross off about half of the tasks.
Thus far, some of the things I have accomplished have brought wonderful memories. For instance, I went fishing, but I didn’t catch anything; hence how I did not highlight “and catch something”. I ended up baking a cake, but created cake pops instead. I wrote multiple thank you notes and sent them out snail mail style. I wore the prettiest dress I will ever own. I didn’t win anything from the lottery ticket, darnit! …and I always support local businesses!
I’ve got about two months left to cross off as many tasks as possible.
I better start working on the 25 layouts task. I’m fairly close to finishing all of them. Here’s a couple recent ones that I made:
Yup, I told you that I’ve been using lots of Studio Calico recently. The bold colors are fun to work with. My 2nd layout is an 8.5×11 layout. It’s not the usual size I create, but I thought I’d try something different.
Layouts #18 and #19 are now complete! Six more to go. That’s not that far way, maybe if I’m lucky, I can tackle that the rest of this week.
Can you tell that I went a little bit paper happy? Well, I did. Just a compilation of a bunch of My Mind’s Eye, Echo Park, Jillibean Soup, American Crafts, and basically every other scrapbook manufacturer.
Is it seriously only Tuesday?! Aye! I wish it was Friday already. Somebody make the days go by faster.
