    Just wanted to say hi and that we made it to Oahu! It is beautiful here and I am so enjoying the 80* temps :) Thank you to all who helped me out with my moving sales! I can't wait until we get moved into a home and out of the hotel to really begin our life here!

    What a wonderful place to start a new adventure. Keep us posted and send pics as you go along. Their fabrics there are fabulous and you should enjoy looking at those. Thank you for sharing.

    Congratulations and best wishes on your relocation! My nephew was stationed there for a few years and he really enjoyed it. Hubby and I will be in Waikiki in Jan. I have never been so I am really looking forward to it! You might let us know if you find any quilt shops!

    DD's husband was stationed there...she said the first thing the Army taught them was....DON'T SIT UNDER THE COCONUT TREES! Especially away from the visitor's beaches. Having a huge, heavy fruit like a bowling ball fall on you would kinda ruin your day.

    We lived there when my DH was stationed at Schofield Barracks. We lived up on north shore in Waialua, about 5 minutes from the beach. Loved the weather, but too bad it was 6,000 miles away from family.
    I loved going to Pearl Ridge Mall on payday :-) Hated the pineapple and sugar cane trucks though! Good luck with your new home

    Well maybe the pineapple TRUCKS are not pleasant, but try to find the white pineapple! I understand it is only in season during the summer... but what a treat!

    (If there was a smilie for lip-smacking I would insert it here.)

    Anyhow... enjoy! And if you would care to share some pictures of paradise with the rest of us (especially in January or February)... we will rejoice with you and be green with envy at the same time.
