HILO'S HAUL

First of all, I am staying druged up on these puppies.

Yes, caught a nasty cold.....trust me, this is nothing new, if there is a bug going around, I will catch it. Lucky me!
Purchased these cosmetic bags at Hilo Hatties....and well....I didn't buy them for me, these will be in future giveaways on this blog....oh yes....it is almost partaaaaaa time here at Bejeweled and I am getting the partaaaaa favors ready.

Purchased two of these bundles, 4 fat quarters at Fabric Impressions in Hilo...... I just want everyone to know that I maintained composure and restraint when entering this shop. Knowing that I have two weeks left on this journey and knowing my space in my suitcase.....well.....I was a big girl wearing big girl drawers yesterday.


Here is what was in the bundle.....ohhhhh so nice.....


Pictures speak a thousand words....... from the Macadamia Nut factory...





This is just part of this massive tree we saw.




Now this is handsome son #4 by the waterfalls Akaka.......I dont' know which is more magnificent????







This is Rainbow Falls.


We went to the crater but were not allowed to walk up to it, too much sulfur dioxide. Bummer.
We are headed to Texas to meet up with son #1 and son #2 is suppose to fly in on the 21st but we found out today this might not happen........ I have some superlatives to add to this but I will once again maintain composure and restraint.... It is hard wearing big girl drawers....

Sorry you're under the weather -- hopefully you'll feel better soon.

Son No. 4 is very handsome. I hope Son No. 2 can make it.

So you really like macadamia Kisses, huh? Just teasing -- I understand completely. My mother-in-law is forever finding things that I can't get here but can't live without.

Have fun in Texas!

JustCindy said...

Enjoyed looking @ the goodies you have purchased. The waterfalls are so pretty. #4 son is very handsome.

Miri said...

I just love all the pictures from your trip-the scenery, the quilts and your cutey!

Have a great time with the kids!

Those fat quarters are just adorable - great find!! And macadamia nuts - heaven on earth. Also, what a handsome boy you have - I'd vote for him over the falls :o)

Looks like you are having a lovely time. I really like the fabric. We had a family portrait done in front of Akaka Falls when I was about 14 years old.

Pat said...

Nice photo of your son. And the fat quarters and Hershey kisses with macadamia nuts....both yummy!

Kim said...

You are funny girl! Happy travels. :-D

JJ said...

Looks like you are having fun. Seems I keep missing you.

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

Hope the meds are giving you some relief.

The fabric is fun. Can't wait to see what you use them for. Or are they the kind of fabric you buy, add to the stash and don't use for years? I think all quilters have fabric like that.

Nice candy haul. That should keep you busy for a day or two ;)

Son #4 is handsome. Great picture. That one should go up on the wall.

Have a safe trip to Texas.

Needled Mom said...

Just catching up after being away, Barb, and am loving all of the fabrics and quilts that you have discovered.

Yes, that #4 is a nice specimen!!!!!

Needled Mom said...

I forgot to tell you that I hope that nasty cold goes away soon.

Stormy Days said...

That candy has to weigh more than the fabric, take those big girl pants off and go wild. By the way, son # 4 is nicer to look at than whatever was behind him (I didn't notice the other scenery). ;)

Fiesta said...

Handsome son Barb and great purchases. Sorry to hear you have a cold.

Tangos Treasures said...

Hope you start to feel better! Love all your new goodies. I agree on #4 & the falls!!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Oh sorry you have a cold, but I can see it did not stop the shopping bug in you. Nice looking boy, I sure hope it works out with son #2!

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

sorry you have a cold--hate those!!!
Love your purchases and pictures--thanks for sharing--and as for kids-- I sometimes think that as adults they are not nice to us parents!!!!!
Hugs, Di

Sorry your sick, hope you're better soon. The bags are so cute and so are the fabrics. Oh, how I love those macadamia nuts, never seem them in Kisses before. I always look forward to Christmas time when I can get some Chocolate macadamia nuts from Costco. You have a very handsome son alright, he must take after you. Have a great trip and be safe.

wackywoman said...

So you must be in Hawaii right now. Wonderful views all around. Hope Son #2 manages to get to Texas to see you.

Melissa said...

Son #4 is very handsome. He looks like his mom! Get better, dear. You don't want to fly when you are sick.

Deanna said...

My stars, your son certainly resembles his mama. Mmmmm...nuts and chocolate. You are showing restraint that any of them lasted long enough to be photographed. Enjoy your visit with as many sons as you can round up.

QuiltSue said...

I'm sorry you've got a code id your dose - hope it gets better soon. Looks like your having a good trip - sons, fabric, chocolate and scenery. I hope that son no. 2 does make it.

Deb said...

Poor you. Hope the drugs have kicked in and you are feeling better soon. Sounds like you were very restrained lol. You know you can always buy another bag for your fabric :-)

Crispy said...

I'm sorry you are feeling yucky...though it's obviously not interfering with your shopping LOL.

You have one handsome son (well 5 of them but we are only seeing the one LOL).

Get to feeling better!

Love all your treasures from Hilo, except the medicine. I do so hope you feel 100% better soon. Did you have to fly off to Texas while being sick?

I hope you feel better soon! The last time I was in Hawaii I was as sick as a dog. I managed to have a good time though. LOL

Oh My! What a handsome man. If only I were younger.

You managed a nice "haul" even while under the weather. Feel better soon, your son is, indeed, a "looker'! Enjoy your visit to TX!

Seams to Sew and Quilt said...

Barb, I hope you are feeling better by now... your like me if theres a bug out here it's looking for me..... Love the little bags and your son is very hansom. Cute fabrics too. Get better soon!

Nicki Lundeen said...

I think son #4 wins against the waterfall by a LONG SHOT!!!!! VERY HANDSOME!

Mary said...

Ho my Gosh, I was there!!!!! I was at Fabric Impression, I was at the Waterfall, These were some of the things I did on my trip, and I brought fabric home from there too. Not the same pack, but one like it. My first fabric stop on the trip. I brought a lot of fabric back from the ports of call.

Those FQs are too cute, almost as cute as your baby boy.
