Back from a Staycation

Ah, me -- I have not yet recovered from the weekend.  My husband so sweetly agreed to chaperone the senior prom with me, even though it meant he had to don a suit and tie.  Sadly, the only photo we got together was blurry...bummer...

Anyway, we made a full weekend of it, staying in Waikiki at the Hawaii Prince Hotel.  

The room service was incredible.  

My favorite dish had to be these smoked salmon roulades: 

The pillows, on the other hand, were not as wonderful.  Even after a night of recuperation last night, I still feel like I need a few more days to sleep off our staycation.  

Before I head off to sleep on a REAL pillow, I'll leave you with a sketch and layout that I created for October Afternoon, using the 5 & Dime and Modern Homemaker collections.   

You can find more details (and Roree Rumph's awesome interpretation of the sketch) on the October Afternoon blog.
