Honolulu Here We Come!

Update at bottom of post.

My mom just asked me if I'd like to go to Hawaii for my birthday in October—her treat. Well hell yes! Let the planning begin. If anyone has any recommendations for restaurants and/or activities, I'm all ears.

Other news, thoughts...

Work has lost its luster but it's still challenging and pays the bills—plus extras.

My mom moved out here in December. She bought a charming house just 10 minutes drive from my apartment. We have been having a blast checking out restaurants and cities nearby. So happy to have her here.

David is happy and healthy—graduated college in January. He is making great money and is in a loving relationship with a gal who is smart, friendly, caring and very pretty.

Went to a baby shower last weekend. There is a reason men don't attend them. Apparently these parents-to-be didn't get the memo.

Going to a fabulous tasting menu dinner in Phoenix in early June for my mom's birthday. Should be a great experience.

Update. Got our itinerary today. Leave 10/19 for Honolulu. Return 10/24. Staying on Waikiki Beach. So excited.


There's plenty to do in five days or five weeks. You won't be lacking for activities. If your mom appreciates quality cuisine like you do, it might be worth planning around food, food, food. For peace and quiet there are the smaller islands, some of which are accessible only if you're invited by one of the residents!

Let me know if you're headed my way for your job or otherwise later this year? I wish I could head up there, and maybe I will in the fall with my new roomie. We shall see!


I am going to be in Casa Grande tomorrow for work. But am driving back in the fleet car in the afternoon with my colleague. I'd love to get together again! Fall would be a great time to visit.

Mom is a foodie as well. We are already planning our eating adventures. We love sushi and any kind of seafood.

Have you been to Hawaii? When?
