The Ko Olina Resort & Marina on Oahu, Hawaii
Hey, boo. Tabs and I just got back from breakfast in the front yard. There’s this cool kitty salad bar out there that has the freshest cat grass in Novato (they say they’re also getting catnip soon). Seriously, TO DIE!
It’s barely 11 here, and it’s already steamy hot outside. Looks like flip-flops and shorts are in order (and a bucket of sunscreen). My grand plans for the day involve my bum in a deck chair, multiple glasses of homemade iced tea and a stack of magazines, ahh…
I’m curious — what can you tell me about homemade ice cream? Have you ever made it before? My muffin top and I would love to hear some tips.
WHOA! The tide’s coming in fast. Can you catch a few e-waves with me before you jam? Grab your boogie board because surf’s up!
