The one and only Honolulu, HI.
My mom and I flew the evening flight from LAX to HNL. The timing was awful. You can't sleep, because you're arriving at 10:30 pm, so for six hours, you watch tv, or read, but mostly sit uncomfortably. You also don't get tv for free anymore! So, mom and I bought DirectTV and watched movies until I couldn't stand it. We watched the very very end of the closing ceremony of the Summer Olympics 2012, "The Lucky One", part of Disney's "Chimpanzees", part of the "Hangover" (she didn't like that one as much), and then three back to back episodes of "NCIS". Thank you, United.
|A carry-on for two weeks? I am really growing into a great packer. I found the greatest bag at Ross's. I love my newest Samsonite.|

Talk about getting things done. In two days:
(I don't know if it's a good thing or utterly gross)
Ramen at Gomaichi
Shokudo Honey Toast
Saimin at Sekiya's
Shaved Ice at Wailoa Shave Ice
Paina at Mai Tai's
Saimin at McDonald's
|Cinnamon Honey Toast|
|Hang Ten stamp from Mai Tai's. Love that place.|
|"Appetizers" at Sekiya's. Miso butterfish, hash, veggie tempura, mac salad. They were all out of my favorite gobo.|
|Large Saimin with vegetables|
|Waiola Shave Ice|
Lilikoi, Li Hing Mui, and Lychee with Ice Cream.
The next time I go back, I'm going all out with the azuki beans and condensed milk.
When I was leaving, guess who was there? Jacob! My brother was bbq-ing and he said he knew he would see me there. He was right. My bum got super sunburnt. It's not the business.
|I really don't think this is okay.|
|Only in Hawaii. And it's sooo good. I always want McDonald's saimin on the mainland. It never happens.|
|I babysat baby Copeland after her second day of pre-school and she fell asleep waiting for sushi! She was drooling too.|
Two days in, and I already don't want to leave.
