Aloha...I'm Back...

Aloha Everyone, NeeCee is Back...
We took a small break from work, the blog and life in the fast lane. Before I go any farther...I must THANK my daughter; Tara at Trendy Treehouse for doing a few posts for me. Thank you-Thank You!
WOW, haven't truly had a REAL vacation in...ummmm, EVER! 
We've been on trips; business and personal trips before but, never just the two of us (Hubby & I) for any length of time! Yes, a long weekend here & there.
 Lots of every where's but, never just TRULY the 2 of us!
SO...Now we have! It was very relaxing! Loved every minute of it! 
We went to Hawaii, the island of Oahu.
 We have been to Hawaii plenty of times on business (mostly) and pleasure...but never just a Me-Me trip for the two of US!
We stayed on the NW shore, away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. YET, close enough to drive into the city for touring or EATING!
Appetizers & Wine at Roy's in Ko Olina
Eating we DID! We have a few favorites there....Roy's, Morton's, LONGBOARD'S and Giovanni's Shrimp Truck...to name a few!
Giovanni's Shrimp Truck on the North Shore of Oahu
Longboard's is a restaurant at the Marriott's Ko Olina Beach Villa's Resort. It is a lovely Bar & Grill located on the resort with a full view of the ocean lagoon. They feature Hawaiian specialty drinks, breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have several meals there and everything is excellent. But, what is most impressive is their management and waitstaff. The entire staff is very well informed, helpful and friendly. They are ALWAYS, always extremely friendly and pleasant. It makes for a very pleasant experience! This staff is so genuine you leave knowing you will return again. If you are ever in their neck of the woods (ocean...hehe) stop in and enjoy a meal.
The sunsets while dining at Longboard's at Marriott's Ko Olina Beach Villa's is just amazing, 365 days a year!
Giovanni's Shrimp Truck you don't want to miss either. The shrimp meals at this truck are nothing short of amazing. We love to take a photo of our heaping shrimp plate and send to family & friends...Just to TEASE them with our LUNCH! EVIL I know!!! 
BUT, I can't help myself!!!!
