Our beautiful KoOlina Beach house that resembles a hotel but each room is equipped with 2 bedrooms /2 bathrooms, and full size kitchen, living room, dining room, 2 balconies and washer/dryer...Luxury at it's best.  I have no dirty clothes in my suitcase.  We cooked in our villa to save money on the cost of meals.  The beach was right out front....I am so blessed to have stayed in such a beautiful place with all of the amenities including pools/bars and fine dining.

A spectacular view from the hotel across the street from us. We were picked up by a shuttle to be carted off for a tasty dinner.  We experienced  so many beautiful sunsets....

Dress $7.99, cardigan $2.99, wooden bangles and earrings.99cents each and new heels from Target that are so comfy....less than $30.00.  I picked them up before I left for vacation.
I'm baaack...I really wanted to participate in the Inspiration Monday over at twobirds but I slept until 2pm today due to jet lag.  I am exhausted and in need of a vacation from the know what I mean?  I am so happy to have my five little pets all sitting around me napping happily with Rob and I home.  They are so cute and all getting along so wonderfully.  I need a day to catch up on things and then I will have myself together.  The flight of 9 hours and then a 2 hour drive from Newark Nj airport home was enough to zap every last bit of my energy.  I can't wait to do a few outfit posts and show you some of my vacation photos.  Have faith in me, I miss you all.  Here are a few unitl I have time to post the rest...Happy Memorial day...God Bless all who have served and who are serving now.  Lots of love, Dawnxoxox

Hi ya Dawn! Oh my ... hello scenery! Love the palm trees and the sunsets sound amazing :)

What a great idea to get a room with a kitchen and all the comforts of home {one that is a hop, skip, and a jump away from the beach doesn't hurt either :)}

You look gorge in your pics, my dear! Vacationing suits you :)

Happy resting! {that jet lag has to be a drag}
