Sunday Salon Hawaiian Style

Aloha from Hawaii! We arrived mid-day Friday. My husband has a conference this week and I tagged along. We are staying at Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu. Heaven! 

I'm listening to: Flip by Martin Bedford. I will finish up with this thought-provoking story when we return on Wednesday.

I'm reading: Divergent by Veronica Roth.  I have finally started this popular, dystopian novel after carrying the book around for weeks.

Book reviewed this week: 
-Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.  Loved, loved, loved it. A new favorite!
-Entwined by Heather Dixon. A retelling of the Grimm's Fairy Tale Twelve Dancing Princesses. Surprisingly dark and scary.

Scripture: Psalms 100:4-5 Give thanks with a grateful heart

Around the house:  Our home away from home. A view from our balcony.

From Karl's kitchen: Karl, a friend from college, made BBQ teriyaki beef, chicken, and ribs. He served it to us while we played on a white-sand beach.  Maholo, Karl, it was a special day.  And remember, you promised to send me the marinade recipe!

Off for some snorkeling! Aloha!


  1. You know we are all choked with jealousy here, don't you? Wow. The view from your balcony is stunning. Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Sounds like a fantastic time! I've been over to the north shore of Oahu and it is beautiful! Have a wonderful and relaxing time

  3. What a fun week you're having! I've never been to Hawaii....sigh.


  4. I think it goes with out saying but I'll say it anyway. I'm so jealous!
