HAWAII - Long Time Coming : )

I know alot of you have been waiting to hear all about my Hawaiian Vacation. Well, I am going to have to try my hardest to blog about this vacation every night this week - one thing at a time. So much to share and tell that just one post will not do it. So, I am going to start this one with my favorite part of my vacation. I decided about a two weeks before we left Michigan that I wanted to do something "special" for Jason. I wanted to make his feel loved and appreciated. With that said I found the perfect thing. We were going to spend the night in Maui (which was the 1st island we stopped at - we rented a room at the Westin Resort). As I was thumbing through the website I came across this private breakfast deal. Well, it was far from a deal - it was very expensive. But, it will definately be a memory that will last a lifetime. This is one of those breakfasts that you see on the bachelor and bachelorette. We were wined and dined to it's fullest. I loved every minute of it and Jason well he was in awe that I had kept this private breakfast a secret from everyone!!
We woke up and in the morning and got ourselves ready. I had butterflies in my stomach I was so excited. We met our waiter down in the lobby of the hotel. He took us to this beautiful private table away from all the other traffic. It was a place where him and I could just be. This is the table that we walked up on. There was fresh squeezed orange juice and pineapple juice along with the amazing kona coffee waiting at the table. The site was beautiful. And he was very surprised.
Our waiter brought out this amazing fruit plate. It was full of mango, pineapple, strawberries, etc. It was the best fruit ever - not to mention the presentation of it was amazing. There was also a plate full of tons of pastries. It was delicious. We also had a fabulous bottle of sparkling wine. It truely was wonderful. The view was spectacular. The only thing missing was the cameras to feel like we were stars. : )

I truely felt like we were on vacation here. This does not ever happen in every day life. : )

This was the best part. Champange and Strawberries. OMG was this ever so good. We dipped them in the sugar and then the cream. It was so so good. I loved all the flowers that were all over the table and all the food plates that were brought out.

After all the yummy goodness - they brought out the main course. We had like 3 courses before the breakfast plates were brought out. Rediculous I know....
Jason had roasted potatoes, sword fish, & a spinich breakfast burrito. Delish is all I can say.

I had the BEST crab cake I have EVER had in my life. It truely was devine. That white thing on top of my crab cake was a poached egg. I love how they add all these fun touches to this food. Again I love all the flowers everywhere. We were treated like royality. And it was only the beginning of our vacation. It was a perfect start to a perfect day (at least that day was a perfect one). You will soon learn that lots happend on our vacation that most people probably do not encounter when on a once in a life time vacation.

These next 2 pictures are a few shots I took from our table. Maui was simply beautiful. And to be able to spend it with my hubby that morning was a moment I will cherish and remember forever.
I would give ANYTHING to go back to this very moment and this very day. It was PERFECT. Sunshine, palm trees, warmth, love, & beauty all in the same place at the same time. I miss it & think about it often.
More of this wonderful vacation to come.....stay tuned.
