Christmas Plans, Finally

Yay! It's only taken me a few months, but I finalized my Christmas plans! My family usually spends Christmas in Hawaii, but because of something that happened earlier this year, I wasn't sure if we were going to make it. My parents and brother haven't decided if they're joining us yet. I hope they do, because it would be so sad to spend Christmas without them.

I am *really* lucky because my parents own a condo in Ko Olina on Oahu. It's a wonderful little suburb about 30 minutes away from downtown Waikiki, but it's much slower paced and relaxing. (Actually, it's a little longer than that if you follow the speed limit, but I don't. I'm from Southern California. People tend to drive fast. ) I highly recommend staying in Ko Olina because Waikiki can get really crazy, and I avoid it whenever possible. There are 2 hotels there, including the newly built monstrosity, the Disneyland Aulani resort. Plus, a lot of people from our complex rent out their condos.

I cannot wait to get soak up some sun and to blog with this in the background. What are your Christmas plans?


  1. Spending Christmas in Hawaii sounds like a wonderful tradition! I've always been in a snowy locale for Christmas but I think it would be fun to switch things up : )
