Hawaii Trip Pics (Finally)!

I am finally getting around to posting some Hawaii pictures! Woo-hoo! I had a great opportunity to go on a girl's trip to Oahu, Hawaii back in March. It was absolutely wonderful and relaxing, I went with CoreyAnn, Stefanie, Erica and Jodi. We laid on the beach A LOT, got massages in a cabana on the beach, went on a Catamaran (laid out on the net and sun tanned) went snorkeling, went to the Polynesian Cultural Center and a Luau and just drove around to different beaches. It was a great week and a vacation I will never forget, thanks for the memories ladies! Here are some pictures of our trip, not great pictures of myself, most of the time I had little or no makeup on (5 women sharing one bathroom) and I was covered in sunscreen. But as most of you know this was my FIRST bathing suit since the 5th grade... yes, it's true! Took me 3 shopping trips, $150.00, and about 50 different suits to try on, but finally found one that semi-fit!

View from our hotel room

Spent many late nights going down to the pool and hot tubs. Met some very interesting people, remember "lunch boxes" Stef?

Our rental car (yes, it's a minivan) but ironically the license plate was PTA, CoreyAnn and Erica showing it off.

Pancake Hut where every plate is served with SPAM (no thanks).

Stef and I at Waikiki Beach

Erica & I at Waikiki Beach (and yes, I went ALL the way out past the rocks)!

Jodi and I out at the pool, this is a few hours after we landed in Hawaii. We were delayed in Seattle by 2 hours due to SNOW and de-icing the plane and then running out of de-icer. Then we were delayed coming home from Hawaii due to a fuel line being broken... yikes! What long flights, thank goodness for small DVD players!

Hawaii guys are HOT!

At the Luau

Realizing the drink has no alcohol... sad!

Erica... "This is yummy!"

Getting ready for the Catamaran

I could have stayed on this boat ALL DAY! It was so relaxing laying on the net out front, being served drinks and food by good looking Hawaiian boys and feeling the breeze... what a life!

Lots of dolphins were all around us.

The good looking Hawaiian boys I was talking about (and might I mention the one of the left asked me out to dinner that night... I said no of course - I'm a married woman)!

CoreyAnn treated us to Ruth Chris Steakhouse one night, it was so good and steak is my favorite food...

Dole Pineapple

CoreyAnn swam with the dolphins on our last day in Hawaii, she had so much fun!

We thought CoreyAnn was crazy when she wanted to stop at Leonard's which is located in the ghetto of Hawaii. But they had the most incredible Malasadas, which are a type of Portuguese donut. Sad to say, between 5 girls - we ate an entire box!

Beautiful sunsets from our hotel, we would go down and BBQ late at night on the beach.
