Hawaiian history

Here is an old picture of Queen Kapiolani and Princess Liliuokalani who later became Queen:

By the way I've noticed that a few people have added me to their Friends List. Thanks for adding me! :) I add in return and leave lots and lots of comments. Lately I haven't been updating daily only because I have been giving my house at HomeHome a facelift.

So far I have had five ceiling speakers installed in my livingroom to surprise my husby, had the carpet measurements done by Lowe's, ordered carpet to replace the old carpet, struggled with replacing the tile with Pergot or with new tile, etc. This is the first house that I have had so it's new to me. Don't get me wrong but I love my Hawaiian culture but in order to survive I choose to adapt plus I'm part Haole too. My grandfather was from Lahaina, Maui and his mother married a Haole man. I have no shame in being Hawaiian and Haole as well as Portuguese and Chinese. That is... I am not ashamed of WHO I AM LOL No one should be. Anyway time to go to Home Depot to choose the new kitchen and breakfast nook lights :)
