Ultimate Blog Party 2010 – Aloha Party!

UPDATE: 2nd Blog Post – the official welcome post and

a chance to win a Hawaiian musical CD. Click here


Oh, hello! I am supposed to write a post for this Ultimate Blog Party 2010. I am late (again!) I am so sorry. This busy working mama is “almost always” late. Let’s just say I am on “Maui Time” or “fashionably late”, ok? Please relax, look around, and enjoy the blog. I am working on a more “welcomy” post at the moment.

In the meantime, to bribe encourage you to leave a comment and let me know that you came to visit, I am doing a draw. Anyone who leaves a comment, even just to say “hello” will be included in a draw and will have a chance to one cute Java Lavalava cup holder. It’s the cutes thing ever – a reusable cup holder designed by my friend @tikitales.


By the way, I have actually donated a prize for this Ultimate Blog Party. I will include a photo of that on my party post. It’s a lot of goodies from Maui – oh all so good.  I can’t remember what number is it (I know, I am supposed to know that – I think it’s USC12). I will let you know  when my party post is up (let’s call this one a pre-post).


So leave your comment and please come back tomorrow. You’d never know I might have some more fun stuff to give away – from Maui no less! Don’t forget to say hello in the comment section. If you’d like to know more about me and my blog, just click the tabs up top (but you probably don’t have time for that right now because you’re partying and mingling around) Be be back for more aloha! I promise it’ll be worth it.

And before I forget, another Maui blogger, and a good friend of mine, @jamarilyn is also participating in this Ultimate Blog Party. She’s giving away a prize too, so check her blog out: The Artful Hawaiian Girl after you leave a comment here. Aloha!

  1. Not sure what a blog party is, but it’s got two of my favorite words: party and blog.

    Watching for the real announcement, while watching the Merrie Monarch festival, and rooting for the Maui halau!

  2. Cannot wait for the “real” post … and LOVE the coffee cup holder!! I’ll be back tomorrow!!

    I am moving to Maui next month and am so excited. My family are selling all our stuff to get there, so I’d love some authentic Hawaiian items to start our new life there!
    Thanks for you Maui blogs; they will really be helpful when we get there.

  7. I’m visiting from UBP, and you’re right, there isn’t a whole lot of time to dig deep into sites while we’re responding to comments and working through the MckLinky! I will be back to visit again since I LOVE anything beach related (just check out my blog, nuff said). I’m hoping to read and see more about Maui!

  8. Hello there, I Clicked on your blog by way of the UBP. I’m glad I found you. I lived on the Big Island of Hawaii from age 9 to 18. Unfortunately, I never did make it over to Maui. Now that I’m married with 2 kids, would be wonderful to take a family vacation back to Hawaii some day. There sure are a lot of beautiful things that I miss about Hawaii. Reading through your blog brings back memories. I’m not a blogger yet, but I love reading blogs. I Love the Java holders. I’ll be back!

  9. I’ve always wanted to live somewhere as exotic sounding as Maui. How wonderful! Stopping in from the UBP of course!!
    .-= Kristen´s last blog ..Ultimate Blog Party? I’m so there! =-.

  10. How fortuitous that I would find your blog. My husband was just telling me how much he would like to move to Hawaii today. He said he could get a job if we were to move to the big island. That would be quite a change from Idaho. Who knows . . .

    In the mean time check out our website at

  12. Ahhh, I can smell the plumeria now. I love Hawaii, and so does my hubby and toddler son (we introduced him last year). Our 3 month old daughter has yet to meet the beautiful land of surf. It’s just a matter of time. We get the “itch” every couple of years. Never been to Maui, though. I soooooo want to live there! Stop by my parties (yea, I have 2 blogs – I’m a nerd like that) when you have a chance. Mahalo!
