“The Ju Ju Beane Boutique features boutique children’s clothing, gifts, and accessories with playful designs and casual styles for babies and toddlers from today’s most popular designer labels.

One of my absolute favorite items is the Aloha Girl: Waves Canvas Wall Art. This tropical print is very feminine without being too girlie. It’s the perfect accent to any girl’s room, one that will be admired for years to come. In fact, I wouldn’t mind having one for myself!

Aloha Friday – Week 14

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

Today’s question is:

What’s one thing you’d like to improve on in 2008?

For me, it would probably be my organizational skills. I’ve always prided myself for staying on top of things but 2007 found me lacking. With all of Girlie Girl’s extra curricular activities, household responsibilities, being away for days at a time due to layovers, and blogging deadlines, I’ve been a little overwhelmed. I need to figure out a system to keep track of everything. That is my goal for 2008.

If you’d like to join us, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to stop by and visit the other participants!


Was Santa Good To You?

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas filled with lots of love, laughter, and wonderful memories!

We attended a party at my parents house on Christmas Eve with about 30 other family members. For some of them, this is the only time of the year that they get to see each other. It was so nice to catch up with everyone’s lives.

Christmas morning was spent sleeping in a little and then opening all the gifts. This was the first year that Baby Bug was old enough to open her own presents and she had a blast! The in-laws stayed over and were present for this event. Of course, MIL had to put in her two cents about how the girls received too many gifts. She doesn’t understand that I can’t exactly tell my friends and family not to buy them anything. Then she insisted that they choose only one toy to play with and put the rest away for another time. Once they returned to Maui – about lunchtime – the girls and I opened EVERYTHING up and played for the rest of the day.

As expected, the girls got their #1 Santa requests and even I got a few things on my wish list. Here they are:

Girlie Girl received a pink digital camera

Baby Bug got her Littlest Pet Shop (no surprise here!)

DH got another iPod

And I got a Canon Rebel XTi 400. Actually, I got this as an early gift and have been using it for the past month now. Love it!

I also received a pink Nintendo DS Lite to play on the plane during our break time. Pretty cool, huh?

What about you? What are some of the favorite gifts that your family received this year?
