This is a long weekend. How is your weekend going so far? Today is Sunday, tomorrow being Presidents Day is a holiday, and I am stoked to have an extra day of “no work”! So here’s how my weekend went so far and what I plan to do on the rest of it …
I took some time off from work in the morning to attend WordCamp Maui. I am so glad I did. Aside from learning from the speakers, the highlight of this event is just seeing and spending some time with friends. I have not been around many of our social media gatherings lately and so I kinda felt out of the loop – this WordCamp Maui event kind brought me back in the loop.
It was very nice to see Jon of Maui Information, Nancy Newman, Dania of Hawaiian Edible, Tania of Maui Shop Girl, and many more … It was also great hanging out with Jen of Island Gypsy Hawaii and Bridget of Bridget Loves Maui most of the time I was there – we had so much fun! Kudos to the organizers of WordCamp Maui, it was truly a well run event. I hope they make this an annual event, I look forward to the next one.
When I came home, hubby dear too me out to a nice pre-Valentine dinner at Thailand Cuisine. Yum yum! We were both so full when we came out of that restaurant. When you come visit Maui and for some reason you had a craving for Thai Food – go to Thailand Cuisine at Kukui Mall.
Saturday is Whale Day. Unfortunately it was also a rainy day on Maui. I initially planned to going to see the parade and going to check out the event in the morning but didn’t get a chance. I cooked breakfast for my family, drove and picked up my daughter to an appointment she had, and by then I went to the 2nd day or WordCamp to catch a couple of sessions I didn’t want to miss. Once again it was great hanging out with Jen and Bridget, great to see many friends, and learned a lot from the sessions. We posted lots of pics on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
My husband and I planned to go out for Happy Hour and Dinner at Monkeypod but when we arrived there, the place was packed. There was no room for us so we decided to drive to Maui Brewing Company in Kihei. That placed was packed too but we were able to squeeze in. We sat next to a couple from Canada here on a Honeymoon. After a nice chat with them and several glasses of Bikini Blond for Bard and Root Beer for me – we decided to order Evil Prince from Thai Cuisine. Yep, Thai food two nights in a row – yum!
I almost forgot to mention that hubby got me a nice bouquet of Tropical Flowers for Valentines Day. I absolutely love it. And of course I absolutely love my husband too 🙂
My kids (teens) have their own gigs on V-day. Our son hanged out with his buddies. They just played computer games, talked stories and then went to a movie. We are thankful that my son hangs out with this nice groups of teens – you know how important that is to have good friends in teen years. My daughter was invited to a Military Ball that night – yep that was her “Valentine Date” and the ball was held at that nice ballroom at Kamehameha Golf Club. Our daughter has a nice group of friends she hangs out with. We couldn’t be more thankful. Thankful for great friends our kids have.
Today, Sunday, is a rest day. However, later in the afternoon I will be running on the “For The Love of Maui” 5k Fun Run. I am so NOT ready! I am afraid I’d be the last one to finish the course but whatever … I am doing it for Hospice Maui and also for my health.
Not sure yet what I am going to do on Monday but I’d make sure it is something fun, and then I’d share 🙂
Usually I would be adding more photos and linking up too. But for today I just will post this as is. I also usually will proof read before I hit the publish button, but now I won’t. I am just easing my way back to blogging here … I woke up so early this morning, and now I am ready to go back to bed and sleep some more, just because it is Sunday and it is a day of rest 🙂 Have a nice Sunday everyone!
