Monday - Whole Hearted and Happy

I am trying to live my life whole-hearted and happy by taking the time to look around with hope and appreciation.  As I get older and wiser, I see how beautiful things really are and how wonderful people can be.  I'm ahead planning for the things in my life that I want to do, such as return to Hawaii for a visit.  I went there several  years ago on a business trip, and I went alone.  Maybe next time there will be someone special to go with for a romantic  getaway.  I would also like to go with my kids when they grew up and they can pay for it themselves...LOL.   I say that because things were so expensive and I would love to have extra money to do some shopping for myself, for a change.   I remember during my trip we  had several nice business dinners and we went to some exclusive shopping areas.  I purchased a gorgeous Tommy Bahama skirt and dress.  I still have the skirt and its in great condition.  I know I'm going back to Hawaii some day.  I just can't wait.


Meet Me on Monday is hosted by Java at Never Growing Old

1. Do you have a fireplace in your home? 
No.  Growing up in south Texas, we didn't need them, but I have always wanted one.
2. Can you drive a stick shift? 
Yes, on one of my first vehicles which was a Subaru.
3. How many computers are in your home? 
We have 3 computers but one is being repaired.
4. Are your taxes done yet? Do you do them yourself?
My taxes are done and file for me.

Breakfast has always been my favorite meal.

  5. We just went to Hawaii last July with all 3 kids (I was pregnant with #4) My In-Laws moved there a year and a half ago so we were visiting them. Having a place to stay, and not having to eat out all the time definately made it more affordable for us. Plus we had personal tour guides. I'm so glad we were able to take the kids with us, but next time is just hubby and I!
