And on to Maui...

I had a blast on another full day in Oahu, this one with my Mom and aunt the entire day!  We checked out the awesome Christmas decorations in Oahu, shopped until I also literally dropped at Ala Moana, then grabbed some delish Asian fare at Shirokiya.  I also got my nails done, as well as my first pedicure (check off another Before I'm 30 task!) and had some delicious Korean BBQ.  I really enjoyed spending some time with my Mom and aunt, something I just don't get to do very often.

Then today I headed to Maui, to begin a jam-packed weekend of wedding festivities and bridesmaid duties!  The flight over is very short, and beautiful during the daytime.  The hotel I'm staying at, the Maui Oceanfront Inn, is right on the beach.  It's older, but comfortable, especially when you are spending all of your time outside your room and just using it to crash!  The beach is pretty amazing, and the water looks spectacular.

I took the public bus up to the local Maui Tacos, and then was able to meet with with fellow bridesmaid JS and her husband IS.  We shopped around, grabbed a drink, and then said our farewells until tomorrow morning's rehearsal.  Tonight I'm headed to the Grand Wailea, where the wedding events are taking place; I actually think I'll be spending more time at the resort than my own hotel!  I'm having dinner with the bride, groom, and maid of honor at Humuhumunukunukuapua'a, which has been rated one of the top resort restaurants on the island.  It's sure to be delicious, and a nice night to kick off what is bound to be a whirlwind of a weekend!

I'm a big fan of the lava rocks... love them!
