Aloha Friday – Healthy Snacks

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kalani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. On her blog she’ll ask a simple question for us to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. Then if we would like to participate, we can do the same.

I am participating this week and my question is:

What is your favorite healthy snack? or healthy snack for your kids

Maui Wedding

Maui is one of the most romantic places on earth, there is no doubt about that. No wonder we have an abundance of wedding planners, photographers, etc. tc. ready to serve lovers around the world who come here to “tie the knot” so to speak.

I will be starting a new feature here on A Maui Blog called “Just Maui’ed” where I will feature weddings held on Maui including the different aspects that go with it like planning a beautiful wedding and actually making it happen.

The photos here are from my friend Nicole, who was raised on Maui and is now living on California with her fantabulous husband Chris (yep, fantabulous is how she describes him:). Go check her “wedding planner” blog HERE and HERE. I will be telling you more about her and what a fantastic wedding coordinator she is, in my future posts, but for now I just want to let the readers know what’s cooking in my head. I love romance, and weddings, and I am very excited to be posting about it here. You can bet there’s going to be tons of beautiful, stunning photos. I can’t wait!

Halloween Costume Parade at Front Street Lahaina and Hallelujah Party at Hope Chapel …

Unfortunately, both “Halloween Costume Parade at Front Street Lahaina” and “Hallelujah Party at Hope Chapel” are not happening this year 2008. I know… many will miss them. There will still be a Keiki Parade or Children’s Parade at Front Street but no Adult parade. Of course there will still be “parties” going on and people will still be dressed up – but there won’t be a formal parade. The Maui Goodness posted:

This coming Halloween, 2008, will be the first in decades to not enjoy the cheerful costume contests and local booths in Banyan Tree Park. The Maui County Cultural Resources Commission denied permits for costume contests, live outdoor stages, and food and craft booths. Their reasoning behind this is to curb indecent and lewd behavior and to preserve the historical significance of the town. They maintain that the events surrounding Halloween do nothing to promote Lahaina’s cultural history. To continue reading click HERE.

About the Hallelujah Party At Hope Chapel, it is basically a budget issue. With the present economic crisis, the church has to cut back on some of it’s activities, and sadly the Hallelujah party was one of them. There is an alternative program which is called Shine. I will post more about it another day. I just want to make sure I post about this “no hallelujah party” because I noticed that a lot of people are googling it and landing on my blog. At least if they find out that there is no hallelujah party this year at Hope, they can plan something else.
