Capt Andy's Dinner Sunset Sail

Full day break downs – Part 3 Day 8 – Monday- Kauai After landing in Kauai and grabbing our rental car, we checked into out hotel Kauai Beach Resort . In Kauai we decided to stay in one hotel and use this as our home base instead of bouncing around from place to place.

Two Week Honeymoon Itinerary in Hawaii – Part 2

Full day break downs – Part 2 Day 6 – Saturday – Maui On day 6 we started down the road to Hana also known as the Hana Highway.

We spent a lot of time planning the trip and it was one of the most memorable trips we have ever had, so I wanted to share our experience.  We generally planned one thing to do each day (some days were travel), but then we left ourselves plenty of time to explore and do our own thing. I recommend you do the same. I will say this now, we intended to see Pearl Harbor at the…

FileThis Review

Going Paperless A recent goal in life has been to remove clutter and junk from the house.  One project I have been avoiding is going paperless. Well this year I have started tackling that project. Maybe in a future post I will write about my paperless system, but for today I want to talk about a new tool I found that is helping me along the journey. It is called FileThis. FileThis is web service that in my mind works very similar to Mint.com. It syncs with all the accounts you tell it to and downloads a copy of your…

Laundry Room Remodel
