We started the day with breakfast at Boots & Kimo’s Homestyle Kitchen in Kailua. They are famous for their Macadamia Nut Pancakes. The sauce they put on their pancakes is the most DELICIOUS thing I have ever tasted. It is crack. Seriously. Doc & bestie ordered some egg omelets and I ordered the Velvet Pancakes – which was basically red velvet cake topped with the macadamia crack sauce! It was divine!
Big sis & I were up bright and early this morning to head to the Swamp Meet & Marketplace at Aloha Stadium. Background info – my sister loves flea markets and lives for a good bargain! She can bargain for ANYTHING – honestly it should be listed as a special talent on her resume. Therefore she was VERY excited to go to this marketplace. It was a very cool experience because I’ve never been to anything like it before. Picture this: football stadium, outside the arena rows of local merchants selling everything from fruits, jewelry, art, clothes, pastries, souvenirs, soap etc. It was awesome. We got their at around 8am and walked around the entire stadium by 11am – Doc & I are very fast decisive speed walking shoppers. We bought a ton of stuff but we will be back to visit with our Mama when she comes in 2 weeks – because she loves these kinds of places [who do you think Doc got the bargain gene from?].
Aloha Hawaii! I arrived in Honolulu and was greeted by my lovely sister with a beautiful lei made of orchids & tuberose flowers that smelled divine! I brought some Nips for my sister because that’s what she likes and I couldn’t just show up empty handed!
