Well the bags are (mostly) packed and we're ready to set out on a grand Hawaiian adventure. It’s a combo Mother’s Day/anniversary/life-is-short trip and we've been wanting to do it for such a long time. We are all beyond excited and CAN’T WAIT to hop on that plane tomorrow morning.
The girls are dying to swim in warm water, play in the sand, eat tons of pineapple and “white fluffy” (that’s what Ree calls white roughy fish) and seabass (Ro says it’s her “best” fish), and wear flip flops all day and night. I’m pretty excited about those things too, but also just can’t wait to see Ro and Ree enjoy the heck out of their first island vacation.
Here’s a quick peek at the girls’ fashion choices today (since it is Fashion Friday). They’re posing with the wild suitcases they picked out at the store for this trip. Ree is adorable and summery in her ocean blue colors (blue is reportedly her favorite color this week), while Ro is cute and spunky in a hot-pink top and ruffled striped shorts. As always, the random origins of their outfits amuse me. Ree’s beloved sequined tank top was a Goodwill find last year (I talked about it in this post), her skirt is one I found at Target when I was supposed to be buying a friend's bday present, and she picked out her headband at the girls’ new fave store: Claire’s. Ro’s shorts are handmedowns from buddies H2&S2, and “go wiff everyting” according to Ro, her headband was a Christmas gift, and she picked out her long-sleeved top/tee at Crazy8. Oh, and they’re both wearing their Skecher’s glitter shoes because they’re so proud to tie their own shoes and they’re the only tie shoes we have in the house.
Well, the girls are at preschool for a couple of hours this morning, and I’m supposed to be finishing up the packing right now. Hm. Better say aloha and get my butt in gear. Malama pono!
