Happy Mail from Cuz and Lots of Foodie Pix

Cuz did it again.   She sends me surprise happy mail that always brighten my day....BIG SMILES.

Starting off with the thank-you card I sent to her using the cool goodies she got for me.   Love, love, love the flower embossing folder, so sweet and feminine!  Also, the balloon die, perfect for birthdays or any type of celebration, and some itty-bitty rhinestones in a really nice assortment of colors.

Here's a close-up of the rhinestones.

Check out this cute, cute card she made.   Hopefully, one day she'll start a blog or share her talent on Pinterest.   (Hint, hint....again)  LOL

And here are the SWEET goodies she sent.  THANKS A MILLION CUZ!!!

And the goodies I sent to her.  She's a pro in making these flowers and also loves birds so I thought this chickie set was perfect for her.

Ready to see some awesome foodie pix?   Today we had our office luncheon and I couldn't resist taking pix of what our staff ordered.   We went to Pineapple's in downtown Hilo and OMGosh, YUMMY to the MAX!!!!  We started with a couple of appetizers.   Here's the Hamakua Ali'i Mushrooms.  

And Gringo Spring Rolls.  OK, I was a bit slow in taking this pix so a couple of the rolls were already cut.   LOL.

A couple of my co-workers ordered the Curry Chicken Wrap with Sweet Potato Fries.

Avocado Spinach Salad.....oh nice and healthy....

Fish and Chips with Cole Slaw and Sweet Potato Fries.....

I ordered the Lemon Macadamia Chicken with Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and Sauteed Zucchini and Eggplant.   Ohhhhh, I was in heaven.  So ono.  I would order this again.

Chicken Pasta.....

Dessert anyone?  Oh YAH.   Here's the Chocolate Decadence that I ordered.   Remind me to start exercising.   LOL.

Haupia Dream with toasted coconut...

And one of their special desserts for the day....Key Lime Pie.....

We all rolled out of there after this awesome luncheon.   So lucky to work for a great firm.  I would highly recommend this restaurant to the local people and visitors.    YUM!!!

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!
