What I Wore Wednesday:: Taste of Waialua Festival!

On Saturday, my friend, Dahlia and I went to the Taste of Waialua Festival on the North Shore. It's a market celebrating local foods and produce. It was fun to see and taste everything from soap (er, we didn't taste the soap, just sniffed it) to honey, coffee, chocolate and flowers grown and produced right here on the island. 




At one of the flower and fruit stands we stopped by, the guy behind the table was about thirty. As Dahlia was deciding which exotic fruit to buy, he complimented me on my rings. And then on my headband. And then he said "You know, you are one of the prettiest girls I've seen. Why don't you pick a flower?" 

He wasn't creepy about it. Didn't leer at me and lick his lips or anything. Just offered a kind compliment and a flower. So I chose the one above on the right. I don't know what it's called. But I like it.



Yum, fresh shave ice with natural mango juice. I love mango. Like, really love. 

Also, I really love Dahlia. I couldn't ask for a sweeter, more encouraging girl to kick it with. 


My outfit that day was pretty basic. Just a tank and shorts but I jazzed it up a bit with my rockin' muchloveilly headband. Um, I love the color coral. Did I tell you that already?? 





coral poppy headband:: {much love illy}

'Twas a fun day indeed!

  4. Hmmm, I didn't see the negative comments so I scanned back to see what was going on.

    I think people were trying to tell you how they feel but they didn't word it in a constructive way. It made you feel like they were attacking you and for obvious reason you got defensive. I'm not sure if they really meant for it to come off as harsh as it did. I'm by no means standing up for them and mean anon commenters in general.

    But, at the same time I can see both sides. As a neutral party I can see how you were trying to share your goals and by selling paintings it's helping you by bringing in money and in turn you are able to afford to fly out to see the hubs. From their side I can see how they could be feeling guilty if they don't buy paintings, then you aren't able to see your husband.

    As for the comment that Katie Leigh left, I agree, it can be annoying to comment on blogs and not get any response, comment or email back in return, especially when you ask a question. I myself and trying to be better at this. I don't think using the word "greedy" was the right choice to get her point across though.

    That being said, deployments are hard and the military wife that though you were playing the military wife card so know that the last thing a spouse going through a deployment needs is negative harsh words. I don't think you were playing the military card at all. That's the truth, you are a military wife, and just like real life, we too have ups and downs, our good days and our bad days. That's what your blog is for, it should be an open place for you to share your feelings. Not everyone is going to like it all the time.

    I hope I did offend you, or any other people reading this. That's just my thoughts on the matter. I've had mean comments on my blog from time to time, so I can relate but I try to make the best out of comments, and honestly while these could have been worded better, I don't think they were as mean spirited as they seem at first glance.

    Hugs girl!
