Friends, I am in a vacation state of mind. Every time an email from Jet Blue pops up in my inbox, I’m immediately scheming and dreaming. No plans on the docket for us, at the moment, but I’m hoping that will change soon… or maybe something magical will happen and I’ll be able to teleport wherever I want. Whatever comes first, I’m excited to feed my vacation brain with today’s Pub Date!
So, the other week Forgetting Sarah Marshall was on TV, today I saw an ad for a movie called Aloha with Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone (it’s from Cameron Crowe), the recent opening of Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in Disney World, and then there’s my blogging bestie who will be headed to Hawaii this month. Basically, Hawaii is everywhere. I have yet to go there, and would really like to go! Palm trees, beautiful water, and a whole new culture to learn about. Plus I really love Kona Brewing Company. This beer isn’t a rarity in our parts (thankfully) but nothing would beat a visit to the actual brewery.
This leads me to my pairing. Kona’s Big Wave Golden Ale in a cute, squat bottle is light and goes with just about meal or snack. Perfect after a long day in the sunshine. And for a book… Famous In Love is about a newbie actress who lands the next big role in a young adult book turned film and the two boys she has to work with. If you are in the mood for something light and fun, this is where it’s at. The chemistry kept me reading AND the setting: Hawaii. So not only is this girl about to turn into a big star but it’s all happening against this gorgeous, romantic place.
That’s about it for me today! Hope you have a great weekend, and oh, if you have any suggestions for books set in Hawaii, please please send them my way! I need my fix…
