As we are gearing up for our Re-Launch of Honolulu Housewives, I wanted to introduce you all to the first batch of Featured Businesses we will have at the event. You can see direct links to their sites on our Event Page.
We can't wait for everyone to mingle, shop, eat, drink, chat, and network at Dave and Busters Oct. 17th. We will have from 5:30-9pm to fit it all in, so make sure you give yourself enough time to do it! And don't forget, Dave & Busters is making us a signature drink for the night...yummy!
My husband and I were finally able to go out on a date night. You may think we are lame for just doing "Dinner & a Movie" but we lead pretty active lives and it's nice for us to just sit and be able to talk to each other. You know, without our little minions (who we LOOOOOVE dearly) interrupting every 2 minutes, or the dog, or work, or...
He finds a restaurant we haven't been to that is close to the movie theater, and we meet there. It's new to us, but we had experienced their sister restaurant last year with friends. It was perfect for the kind of evening we were looking for and their sign in the back was exactly how we were feeling. Of course "It's all Good" when I have my husband to myself, a glass of wine, and some delicious food. Funny enough, the couple who was dining next to us, had ordered the exact same appetizer and entrees, and then went to the same theater! So yes, we did the typical date night for couples, it was clear...but when the "typical" is actually out of your personal "norm" it feels quite unique.
Thanks Piggy Smalls for making it a great, much needed, date night!
Bienvenidos, Welina, & Welcome to the new and improved Honolulu Housewives! This is a place for us to connect with our past, fully enjoy our present, and manifest our future on these beautiful islands. I, like most of you, am a "transplant" to Oahu. My husband and I (boyfriend at the time) moved to Oahu at the beginning of 2010 with 2 suitcases and a dog. We left behind family, great stable and promising careers, and ventured onto the island to pursue MY dreams of owning a dance studio.
One marriage, 2 beautiful kids, and a few successful businesses later, we wouldn't change anything. Well, at least I wouldn't...but every year during Football Season I'm pretty sure he'd rather be back in Seattle using his season tickets to cheer on the Seahawks with his Dad, painting his face and his chest (insert eye roll here), and heckling the opposing team. But that's why I LOVE him...and his sports addiction is a whole story in itself...
The Hawaiian Islands are a very transient place, and my goal is to create a way for women to connect with other women right away on this beautiful island. One of my biggest draws to Hawai'i was that it reminded me a lot of where I was born and raised, Panama. This tiny island chain made me feel at home, just like my tiny little country, and through Honolulu Housewives I want to create a fun atmosphere for women to get to know other women on the island, and also feel at home while they are here.
I sincerely can't wait to meet you at one of our Ladies Night Out events!
Aloha Ladies of Oahu!

I don't know about you, but whenever I find a product I love I want to share it with everyone I can! That's why I'm so excited to tell you about my new favorite bag... It's the Ameribag Healthy Back Bag.
Because we have such AMAZING weather here in Hawaii the kids and I are always heading down to the pool. The AmeriBag Healthy Back Baby Bag is the PERFECT pool bag for us. It can hold several towels, your hydroflasks, snacks and more--plus it comes with a removable plastic pouch inside that can double as a wet clothes bag for after swimming. YAY!
Other features of the AmeriBag Healthy Back Bag Bag are the ergonomic design and extra wide, cushioned and non-slip strap, worn as a cross body style it's perfect for staying handsfree on the go. It also comes with a cosmetics bag, and
So what makes it healthy?
It's simply a better design. It's body hugging and contouring, and can be worn multiple ways to help keep you comfortable even when it's loaded up--now straps digging into your shoulders! The bag molds to the contours of your spine which allows the weight to be evenly balanced. As a bonus, it's not just one bottomless pit like most bags, there is plenty of pockets to keep everything in it's place plus a key fob attachment so you don't have to worry about losing your keys.
To learn more about the AmeriBag Healthy Back Bags and get your own visit their website.

Have you checked out the new Ka Makana Ali’i over in Kapolei yet? We recently had the chance to visit Ka Makana Ali’i and the brand new California Pizza Kitchen restaurant.
The first thing that hits you when you visit California Pizza Kitchen in Kapolei, is the attention to detail they gave the design. It's upscale and relaxed, and focused on the open hearth pizza oven where you can watch your food being created!
California Pizza Kitchen is entering it's next phase and has reimagined it's menu to include new foods and handcrafted cocktails. They have lots of new menu items that are sure to be very popular here in Hawaii including Crispy Ahi Tuna Rolls and Poke Chop Chop Salad.
After we ordered, our waiter brought all three of the kids out a ball of pizza dough to play with during the wait. They had a blast creating different shapes with their dough balls. Turns out California Pizza Kitchen also special program that allows kids to play chef and make their own pizza using fresh ingredients, while getting creative and learning about food along the way.
Perfect for birthday parties, CPKids parties include a VIP-style behind-the-counter restaurant tour, a meal and dessert from the award-winning CPKids menu, souvenirs and a certificate for a free CPKids Meal for each child’s next visit.
now the most important part...the food
Everything from gourmet Pizzas to steaks, to fresh seafood, California Pizza kitchen brings it with delicious food. I went with the Fish Tacos and a week later I'm still thinking about how tasty they were.
When you visit CPK you MUST get dessert because Oh, my goodness these Red Velvet and Butter Cake with ice cream.
Just trust me, order dessert and thank me later.
We loved trying out the NEW California Pizza Kitchen in Kapolei, and would definitely recommend you all driving out to the West side to visit them too, or give the new menu a try at any of the Oahu locations.
