Happiness Comes to Hawaii

Hawaii is a pretty fabulous place to live. The weather is perfect nearly every day. I've seen more rainbows in the past three months than I've seen in my entire life. There are some of the most incredible views I've ever had the joy to see. It has it's drawbacks though.

One of those issues was solved when the two Target stores opened here. Ahhhh. Target.

Our other common laments are that we miss Chick-fil-A and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. We don't complain about this often. It's not like we sit on a beach under a double rainbow watching the sun set behind the surfers and say, "This stinks! I want a Chick-fil-A sandwich and a Krispy Kreme doughnut. I hate my life."

But still.......there are just some things you miss sometimes.

But as usual, God always provides. This week I was driving home and there, on the street corner, was a group of people selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts for a fundraiser. I have no idea what they were raising money for. They could have been raising money to buy Paris Hilton a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I didn't care.

"How much?!" I screeched at the girl on the side of the road.

"Ten dollars," she shouted back (she might have said twelve, I don't remember, I was flinging money out the window at her, I didn't care how much they were).

"Where did you get these?" I sobbed clutching my box of doughnuts.

"We had them flown in, they're fresh," she grinned at me.

I think I got some of the glaze on the camera lens during the feeding frenzy which progressed when I got home.

Life just gets better and better.

Now where's that Chick-fil-A?


  1. Thank you for my laugh for the day. This was better than the web cam. Tammy

  2. I'm going to stop at the Krispy Kreme store the next time I am in Albany and eat a box JUST FOR YOU ! ! ! ! ! GG
