Aloha from Hawaii

AMAZING TRIP!!!

I tagged along with my friend Dudley who went there for a work conference/retreat.  He was in chill mode so I did alot of swimming, shopping and drinking!!!  Would love to go back & do some more touristy stuff.  I didn’t wanna venture too far out by myself and end up missing like the tourist in Aruba.

We stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort, a beautiful & humongous complex that was in the perfect location. The beach was right in front of us, Ala Moana Shopping center to the left (an endless shopping adventure) and Kalakaua Ave to the right. Kalakaua Ave can best be described as much more fun version of Rodeo Drive.
I’m a die hard Atlanta Falcons fan so we searched long and hard for a place to watch the football game at 8am (1pm Eastern Time).  Ended up missing the Falcons vs. Panthers game, but my girl Rocky gave me a play by play of the awesome win.  It was funny sitting in a sports bar at 8am drinkin a Mai Tai with my pancakes.  
   
We went to an evening luau and it was just as cool as it looks on TV.  Complete with fire dancers, they even had adorable Polynesian girls handing out the leis. As much as I love flowers, I was in flower heaven in Hawaii. *CLICK the video & take a peak of the fire dancers*


It's 5 o'clock somewhere = My moto
Diamond Head Mountain - volcanic tuff cone
Dudley joined me for the day & we climbed Diamond Head Mountain, he literally had to drag me up the mountain, I thought I was going to die. When I finally made it to the top, it was worth the pain because the view is amazing.






While Dudley was maxin & relaxin, I took a shuttle to the Waikele Premium Outlets & did what I do best… shopped & goofed off! I was having way too much fun with the kids working in the Skateboard shop & came pretty close to missing the shuttle for the airport.
