New Hobby: Plant Life

I have developed quite an obsession with air plants and succulents over the past few months. I love that they're easy to care for, and look amazing in various vessels.  This first one, I purchased as-is from Foodland in Aina Haina.  
 To my surprise, it grew this pretty flower a few weeks later. 
Most of the fun is finding the right glass vessel for my air plants.  They need just the right size and shape to match the plant. 

Here are some of my outdoor friends.  Some of my aunties kindly donated  air plants for me to grow in my yard.  They grow at turtle speed, so I don't expect them to look much different for a while. 
 Mini bonsai...
So there it is! I have a new hobby that calms me and makes me feel all domestic.  I will share my lettuce and herbs in another post.

Recent Instagram Pics=Sweets and Doggies

With the occasional picture of shoes or scenery, my pictures on Instagram tend to be of food or dogs.  Here's some soft serve from Samurai in Aiea.

Vegas in the Summer

So we were supposed to leave on August 10th for our Vegas vacation, but Vacations Hawaii had a broken airplane AGAIN and we didn't leave until the 11th.  This made our trip one day shorter and very quick.  Upon arrival at the California Hotel, I had my usual butterfish. 
We went to a trade show with my dad on Sunday at the Hilton.  Then it was off to the Orleans to lose some money. 

 On Monday, we shopped at Caesar's Forum Shops. 

 Check out this cool Marc Jacobs window...
After a long day of shopping, we hit the Wicked Spoon buffet at the Cosmopolitan.  Yum! One of the best buffets I've been to.  

 We took some pictures at Bellagio...

and the rest of the trip consisted of gambling, eating, and buying beef jerky.  Another Vegas trip for the books!
