Hawaii Bound

Hi Ocean Dreamers!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Mine was great - super restful
and I felt peaceful instead of restless.
I am so thankful about this, considering
I felt restless pretty much all last week.
One of the reasons 
I might be feeling better 
is because...
I decided after all to use some
of my vacation hours 
to go to Maui, Hawaii in July!!!!! 
I am going with my dad,
mom, brother, aunt, 
uncle, and cousin.

You can probably tell my excitement
from all of my new ocean pictures on my blog 
and my Hawaii countdown widget.
Ha ha.

So to celebrate my excitement I thought
I would post some ocean dreaming pictures.
After all, this blog is about ocean dreams!
I feel like sometimes I don't blog
about the ocean as much as I would like to.

So let's enjoy some pictures of Maui
to get us in the summer mood! :)
Turtle Beach Villa. Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii
Luxury Retreats International
Umm, can I please get married to BK
walking down this trail of flowers?!

I don't know if I have mentioned this
but I have always wanted to get married
in Maui at sunset.

It is my favorite place on earth.
So beautiful and warm.

I feel a bit spoiled since this will be
my third time going there.
My parents have a time share there.

I never grow tired of Maui though!
It is pure bliss to lay out in the sun,
take a dip in the ocean,
eating yummy food, and sipping on
amazing drinks at the resorts.
Heaven on earth I tell you.

Here is my Maui wish list.
I am sure there will be more to come.
I better start saving!
Juicy Couture Bathing Suit
Juicy Couture Metallic flip flops
Juicy sunglasses. 
Going to stop with the Juicy obsession right now.
Okay I am off to do a little happy dance now.

  Have any of you ever been to Maui?
  I know a few bloggers have actually
  gotten married there!
 I hope you can find some time
   to get away and do some ocean
    dreaming this summer.
I can't wait!!

We split our trip up with 5 days in Maui and 4 days in Honolulu. If I went back to Hawaii, I'd definitely spend most of my time in Maui! What a gorgeous island!

  26. I'm so glad you decided to go! And so incredibly jealous! I've never been to Hawaii, but boyfriend and I have all but definitively decided that will be our honeymoon destination! Probably a mix of Maui, Oahu and Kauai. It will be so amazing!
