Happy New Year!

Considering visiting Hawaii? Are you freezing your buns off? Are you wondering what the sun feels like? Tired of sneezing coughing hacking shivering? Come on over to Hawaii. This is the best time to visit us.

We decided to play the tourist this past week to celebrate the New Year. Staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, we got an excellent corner room with a view of Aloha Tower to view the fireworks at midnite and the rest of Waikiki which includes the view of Diamond Head. Wow! What a 180 degree view. I loved looking at the city lights at night. Fabulous!

On New Year's Eve, we popped some Italian bubbly, Prosecco, and watched the fireworks at Aloha Tower, Kaimuki, and off the shores of Waikiki. Talk about a celebration.

We ended the evening watching the Entourage marathon on HBO. Yayyyy!

Happy New Year....Hauoli Makahiki Hou...from Hawaii.
