The sad truth of a luau...


I know, I know. I'm sorry that I have to start your Monday off like this. HAHA!! Hi everyone! I hope your weekend went well? And slow? Unlike mine! Grrr...at least Summer is coming, and at least I'm not that pig. LOL! What a way to start my June/July Guest DT over at Club Anya!!! Yeahhh! I'm celebrating Hawaiian style. ;)
And look at how happy everyone else is at the luau:


Oh the guilt that I have now, enjoying all the entertainment, hula girls, handsome Hawaiian guys in their pareo (sarong/lava-lava) escorting you to your table as you pass flaming torches. And there on that back table, a pig that I have lovingly named Kalua sits amongst fresh fruits and a bowl of rice. LOL! (note: no animals were harmed during this film)
All of these images are from The Greeting Farm: Hula Anya, Dress Me Ian (both fair and tan complected-teehee!), and Kalua from the Farm Friends set, I drew the pineapple and torches to keep it more realistic. ;)
And guess what today is? It's the big announcement of my Trick or Treat blog candy giveaway! Random.org has selected Sara Strand! Congratulations Sara! :D Okay everyone, have an incredible Monday, I hope my card made you smile. :D
*Love and Aloha*

O you gonna make me cry tears of sadness. I miss HOME. You know I had to buy a pair of close toe shoes when I moved away. At first I just tried to get away with toe socks and my rubbah slippah, then onto my sons shoes but I finally broke down and bot real shoes, then I eventually had to give up wearing a bikini top instead of a bra..... AWWW, I wanna come home fo sho... My lil girl will be landing there any minute now. she is moving back "home". Hugs from Sicily
