In late 1980, I was fortunate enough to go to Kauai with a former boyfriend and stayed at the Westin Kauai. Fast forward to the early 90's after I married my husband, we went to Kauai, and surprisingly enough stayed at the same property, only this time, it was the Marriott Resort Kauai. It was an incentive trip with his company and I remember thinking, "I've been to Kauai, can't we go somewhere else?" It was so ridiculous of me to feel that way and not realize how incredibly lucky I was to go back to a majestic paradise as Kauai, with my husband! To be younger and foolish again...
Wish I was on the beaches of Kauai today (hell, any beach would be okay by me), but I'm not, so I'm dreaming about it and playing along with in An Island Life's Aloha Friday.
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend.

My question: Do you shop online? If so, what is the one thing that draws you into an online store? i.e. free shipping, a sale, pictures, free gift wrapping, etc.?
My answer: I love to shop online, I can cover a lot of ground and I can do it anytime I want, in the comfort of my home, in my favorite pajamas, drinking a cup of coffee! I did 90% of my Christmas shopping online. For all my out of town relatives and friends, its easier to shop, buy and ship it directly to them. I prefer shopping at other indie artist boutiques like mine (shameless plug for Dee-Zigns Handcrafted Jewelry), because they normally have one of a kind items and offer free gift wrapping, like me! Offering free gift wrapping is not a total deal breaker, though, because I've bought things at toys r us, shipped them to my sister-in-law's house and asked her to wrap them for me for my niece's birthday.
