Who woulda thunk it-a winding tourist attraction home to the East side of Maui’s dangerous, mountainous curves. Well our second day in Maui was a 12 hour day trip viewing some of the most breathtaking flora, fauna, scenery, and Hawaiian history all jam packed with 20 other bus riders from the Midwest. The weather really played with us that day; did a little rain dance, got hot, got cold, and almost blew me away off a scary slippery slope! LOL The pictures will illustrate this, passing through different climate zones but I assure you we are still on the island of Maui!

Happy 4th of July 2012 everyone! Hope everyone is having an awesome independence day full of family, fun, friends, white wine, barbeques, and THANKFULLNESS. You get my drift 😛 LOL. I just wanted to take the time out and say how blessed I am to live in this country. We all go through the day to day grind of work and life and sometimes forget what an amazing nation we live in of FREEDOM and individual rights.
I wanted to share with you my chic outfit (that’s SO not red, white, and BLUE) of what I wore during America’s birthday. My uncle stopped in town for the day so we went to the local military base and went SHOPPINGGGG YESSSS 😀 *um can we say no taxes?* followed by a bite to eat at Cheddars, our first time there, and of course the day trip would not be complete without TJMAXX. <<More haulage from ya girl maxxinista to come!
But anyways BACK to my quick outfit of the day!!

Last night I was going through some camera pix and noticed I forgot to add these! So sorry D: I know how much it is killing you all. But at least you’ll get to see me in one of them! Indulge because it’s a fantastic Friday in June!!!
The above promo image is of the movie set to release in a few short weeks! If you are not familiar with ROA, sorry for party rockin’! JK hahaha but all jokes aside..I’m pumped because my mom and I have tickets to see the broadway musical in Chicago 🙂 Nope, not New York but Chi-town! When I asked my aunt which musicals were showing in the Windy City she said this one. I really had my eye on Evita but that wasn’t showing 😦 Post living in New York I’ve been dying to see the Rock musical ever since!
Now I have the chance and I’m pretty sure I’ll be clueless the whole time they’re singing 80’s beats but that’s OKAY! What I lack in eighties culture I’m sure someone will be jiving in the theater seats. But do you know what I’m MORE excited about than previewing the musical? Putting my edgy rocker spin on something floral! Feast your eyes on my outfit I plan to style for the return of classic rock and turn up that Aerosmith! BD
