Our trip to Maui

We are back home from our daughters beautiful wedding in Maui.  I'll post more about that later!

It was a very long trip to Maui from Atlanta.  From the time we left our house to the time we arrived in our room at the hotel....17 hours.

My mondo bag was the perfect bag for me to take on the plane.  It holds so much stuff....iPad, headphones, snacks, book, etc., and it fit perfectly under the seat in front of me.

Before the bride and groom arrived, I had the chance to quickly visit The Maui Quilt Shop in Kihei.  I picked up a few fun fat quarters.

They had so much pretty Hawaiian style fabric and so many quilts hanging from the wall.

Notice that cute black polka dot bag with the rosette that I'm holding, I made it before we left Atlanta.  My hotel key card, cell phone, ID, and money fit perfectly in this little bag.  The pattern is from Atkinson Designs and is called the Lollipop Bag.
 We arrived home late yesterday afternoon and I'm happy to say the trip took only 15 hours.  I've unpacked us, the laundry is done, yard is mowed, grocery shopped, and dinner is in the oven.  We had a wonderful time but it is sure nice to be home.
I can't wait to share some wedding pictures soon!
