Hau`oli Lā Hānau!!

Happy Snowy Friday!!!

Are you wondering what "Hau`oli Lā Hānau!!" means? It is "Happy Birthday!!" in Hawaiian! We celebrated a co-worker's birthday on Tuesday. Debbie is from Hawaii so I knew that I was going to use my a-dorable
Imaginisce Penguin Chick and A Shore Thing coordinating papers. Her bikini top and flower are colored in with my Stampin' Up Cameo Coral marker. Her hula skirt is Memento Pear Tart, yes it has a glitter-licious waist band :) One of the gal's in the office {actually there is more than one but...} is a cooking/baking guru. Upon the Birthday Girl's request, she made a Chantilly Cake. It looked delish...I didn't partake in that part of the festivities because 1. I assure you that last Saturday I consumed enough calories for the rest of the year and 2. I'm lactose-intolerant and didn't have any meds with me...enough said about that :)

I tell you, this cold front made the kids/me miss school/work 4 days this week...yes, it is that bad. In a pinch, we can walk to the grocery store but luckily it hasn't gotten to that point {I'm one of those gal's that is always cold..even with sweaters on}. The kids are lovin' the weather...me? I don't like not being able to just "hop in my car" kwim? I just have a smidge more Christmas shopping to do that I haven't been able to get to because of the snow...Realistically if it doesn't get done it's okay but, I'd love to just get it completed.

Over the weekend I'll post some great tips that I read about in my most recent Real Simple...love that mag!

  5. Too cute! I have this stamp--I didn't know there was coordinating paper!!!! :D

    We had ice overnight, so Christmas break started a day early for me. Luckily, I finished the shopping yesterday. I'm tackling the last of the xmas cards today.
