Remember the blog project I did last year with three other women? Well, Froggie decided to resurrect it with me and we each got to invite another friend to join us. She invited a mutual friend (someone I met through her) and I invited a friend whose blog I really enjoy reading. So now it's Froggie, Mom of Many, Moma Rock and Merrylandgirl. Hope you enjoy the topics that we'll be exploring!
This week, I picked the topic: What is one thing you have never done but really want to do?
Before reading ahead, first see what everyone else had to say on this topic:
Mom of Many
What do the Brady Bunch, the Full House crew and the Bayside High gang have in common? Well, aside from being a group of three girls and three boys (or men), they have all gone on a trip to Hawaii. The closest I've gotten to Hawaii (aside from watching "50 First Dates" more times than I can count) is a luau party and drinks at Hala Kahiki for my 30th birthday. For those of you who don't know, Hala Kahiki is in CHICAGO. It's a little Hawaiian themed bar with some amazing mixed drinks. But that's not important right now. What's important here is that I've never traveled to Hawaii. And I really want to go there!
I had recently had some sort of epiphany that there is the possibility that I could die one day (when I'm way older, of course) and never have been to Hawaii. The thought freaked me out. I'm sure there will be a lot of places that I never get to visit in my lifetime, but I hate the thought of missing out on such a beautiful place. All I know of Hawaii is really from movies, TV shows, books and pictures my friends took on their trips there. One of my friends grew up in Hawaii, so he's had plenty of time to see it all. It seems like such a tropical paradise. Don't get me wrong, I've been to islands before. I've been on Caribbean cruises and went to St. Lucia for my honeymoon. Still, Hawaii beckons to me like some unknown force. I could see myself spending my days touring the islands and relaxing on the beach with a tropical drink. I think it would be fun to experience a real luau, as long as there is no pig eating involved!
I know I talk a lot about wanting to go to Disney World, a tour of Europe and another cruise or two. So my desire to go to Hawaii may come as quite a surprise. I just know that I would LOVE to experience all of Hawaii hands on. I wouldn't even mind taking the kids on such a trip, if we could all survive a long flight to get there in the first place. Times like these are when I really wish I could teleport!
A hui hou, mahalo for reading this!
