Happy New Year !

My how time flies.... we only have about 6 -7 months left here in paradise, yikes !  I think I need to work less and beach more !  I am looking forward to next week when Mom comes out, we are going to visit some places that I haven't even been to yet.  We are going to the Polynesian Cultural Center and Wameia Botanical Gardens and I hope to seem some whales this time when we hike the to the lighthouse again!

Well I was just doing a little blog cleanup this morning, and thought I would share a little dessert that I made for a friend at work, for her birthday ..... I wanted to make a french dessert and discovered the Charlotte cake ! So pretty, I kind of mixed a few different recipes together but for the most part I used this one.  I followed the recipe except for the dream whip, I used heavy whipping cream instead.  I also covered the top with raspberries, oh so pretty ;)

We went to the Polynesian Cultural Center on our honeymoon. Loved it! I recommend getting seats up close for the show that night. We were in the second row and it was worth the extra dollars.
