Christmas can't come soon enough this year! We'll be on the beach in Hawaii to celebrate it!!!
Todd says this is a "Once in a Lifetime" trip, so we're staying on the North Shore of Oahu at the Turtle Bay Resort. We've splurged and will spend five nights in at Beach Front Cottage. We'll be in Hawaii for seven days, but will spend the first and last nights with Megan and her family. SO EXCITED!!!! The grandkids are getting so big and it will be REALLY nice to see them all again. Carter will be walking and talking by then, I suppose.
I've been searching Pinterest and found some ideas of things to make before the trip. One thing I found that I think are really neat are Barefoot Sandals! Perfect for those romantic walks on the beach before bed that I'm hoping for! lol I've had the supplies for a while, but put them away in my sewing cabinet. Memorial Day weekend Todd was home, but he was working outside on his compressor trailer, so I needed something to keep me busy and decided to pull out the supplies.
I found the pink/white/clear glass beads in the clearance section at WalMart a while ago. (It's hard to take good pictures of your own feet.)
The black/white/clear beads were the first ones I purchased a long time ago at Hobby Lobby.
Looking at the pictures, I probably shouldn't have taken pictures of my right foot - it's the one with scars on it from when I was really small. lol
I think the sandals turned out pretty good! I still have lots of the stretchy cord left, so I may end up making a few more, but we'll see. I'm really not planning to buy a whole lot of new clothes for the trip - I still have a bunch from when we went on the cruise a few years ago and will take most of them. We're also going to a luau, and doing a lot of the "touristy" things. Part of what I'm earning working part time has been going to to pay for the trip, so soon it will be paid for! That will be nice!
