Hawaiian Veggies and The Sroutwells Get a Dog!


green drink veggies Hawaiian Veggies and The Sroutwells Get a Dog!I cooked this evening, so I thought I’d share a recipe for “Hawaiian Style Vegetables” – we do this one lots!

Hawaiian Style Veggies
1 c. chicken broth
2 tbsp. instant minced onion
2 c. sliced carrots
1 tsp. parsley
1 (8 oz.) can pineapple tidbits
1/4 c. chopped green pepper
2 tsp. cornstarch

Cook carrots in chicken broth 10 minutes. Add onion and parsley. Drain pineapple and reserve liquid. Stir in pineapple and green pepper. Cook 1 minute. Combine cornstarch with reserved juice. Stir into simmering vegetables. Cook until thick. 6 servings. 53 calories each.

Speaking of veggies, a new episode of Sproutwells is out with their newest addition – Phyto the veggie dog. If you are new with the Sproutwells, they are your common, everyday fruit and veggie family who live among humans. Pretty believable, eh?

I have embedded the video into this post so you can see for yourself. My favorite character is Rosie cuz she is super funny and a little bit sneaky too… you’ll see. I also like the part where Ruby imagines herself as the next Paris Hilton. The Sproutwells series is created by FreshFunds.com – a website
dedicated to helping people live happy and healthy lifestyles. 

This is your chance to get rewarded for living a healthy lifestyle by joining the Fresh Funds program. Learn more about their program and share the laughter of the latest Sproutwells episode with your family and friends.

What are you doing to live a healthy life?

Tips On How To Make Money With Your Blog

This is a sponsored guest post written by Justin Germino on behalf of Dragon Blogger Technology. Post powered by Sponzai.

 Tips On How To Make Money With Your Blog

I wrote a fully detailed article listing over 20 websites that pay you to blog online and which ones worked best for my and my own blogs.  This article is to help bloggers who are trying to monetize their blogs and be able to make some extra money while doing what they already love to do.

Some of the sites that work best for me include SocialSpark, PayPerPost Version 4, BlogsVertise but I have recently been making almost $50 per month from my twitter account with SponsoredTweets and Ad.Ly both of which pay you to advertise with your twitter profile but you have full control over what you want to promote (no auto DM’s and no spamming).

Google AdSense works best over the Chitika, Kontera and other context links and ad programs on my own blogs.

I can tell you that I have never had any success with Smorty, Blogger Wave, LoudLaunch or LinkFromBlog.

This is a snippet and sample of my full detailed article on the top companies to earn money blogging, if you enjoyed the article come over and read the full article and share any services you may have used that I don’t have listed in my article.

Malena’s Graduation Invitations

 

My best friend Malena is finishing up her student teaching block and will soon be graduating from Ohio State!

Now Mal-mal (Malena) and I have been best buds since 5th grade and have done absolutely EVERYTHING together. I have tons of favorite memories… like the time we went paintballing at Hawaii All-Stars, the night she got her first kiss at Kapiolani, our weird and scary sleepover at Ala Moana Beach Park, and the time she bailed from the Oahu Ghost Tour because she had to pee! Haha – we have had some really good times.

Malena has always wanted to be an art teacher and I’m so proud of her accomplishing her dream. I love you little Mal-mal and I can’t wait to see you again!

My makuahine and I taking on the task of creating Malena’s graduation invitations and we want them to be super special. We’ve used VistaPrint for this type of project before because we like how you can customize everything (art work, photographs, fonts, paper stock, etc.). We also like how you can proof everything online before placing your order with them.

Pretty slick, but we’re having some difficulty on the creative side so I’m hoping my readers can help out with some suggestions. Here’s what we’re looking at:

Since we’re having Malena’s graduation party at the family home in Waipahu, we’ll need to include specific directions to the residence. The directions are rather long, but we don’t want to take up a great deal of announcement space to include them. Is it appropriate to add an insert with directions?

Since Malena is an artist, we would LOVE to include one of her original creations on the front panel; however the announcement text will need to be over her artwork. Is this in bad taste to put text over her artwork?

And finally, since Malena is a native Hawaiian and a Rainbow Warrior at heart, do you have any suggestions on how we might lay out an Ohio State Buckeye logo that is complimented by a Hawaii Rainbow Warriors logo? I’d really like to do both!

I’m looking forward to reading your suggestions!

Looking Beautiful in the Hawaiian Sun

sun 300x222 Looking Beautiful in the Hawaiian SunI love spending time in the Hawaiian sun, and I’m outdoors enjoying it 3-4 hours per day. Sunbathing, snorkeling, and surfing… the sun can be brutal on delicate skin.

As a young woman that wants to stay looking young and beautiful, I have been reading about Dr. Chantal Burnison and her invention of Ethocyn from Chantal Pharmaceuticals. Some of you might not have any idea what Ethocyn is, but it’s a skincare product that enhances the content and quality of your skin’s elastin fiber content. It can even reduce and remove wrinkles!

Hawaiian women are going to love this!!

Sandy Beach on Oahu’s North Shore

Whether you’re looking for high adventure on the waves, romantic sunsets or a protected, family friendly swimming spot, Oahu’s beaches have it all. And while you may know world famous Waikiki Beach and the high-octane winter waves of the North Shore, there’s even more to discover along Oahu’s 112 miles of coastline.

Sandy Beach on Oahu’s North Shore

Sandy Beach: A favorite of Oahu-born President Barack Obama, this stretch of sand is 10 minutes past Hanauma Bay near the Halona Blowhole. A popular local beach, the massive shore break here can be dangerous, so bodysurf at your own risk.

Diamonds in Diamond Head?

diamond head Diamonds in Diamond Head?

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the Southeast Coast of Oahu, Diamond Head is arguably the most famous volcanic crater
in the world.

The crater was originally named Laeahi by the ancient Hawaiians, which means “brow of the tuna”. The current name of Diamond Head came from British sailors in the 1800′s who mistook the calcite crystals in the lava rock for diamonds.

As far as vocanic activity, Diamond Head has been extinct
for 150,000 years.

My Grandma and Nu’uanu Pali


mahalo My Grandma and Nuuanu Pali
Grandma… are you reading this? Of course you are because you read me every day – haha!

My grandma lives in Kailua which is located in Windward Oahu. It’s about 12 miles from Honolulu and it’s over Nu’uanu Pali which is the tallest mountain peak in the Ko’olau mountain range – a lovely drive but not so good for grandma anymore. We’re all worried about grandma because she is getting older and has diabetes so we hope to have her moving in with us soon.

Grandma crosses Nu’uanu Pali once a week for a B-12 injection in Honolulu and we’re trying to convince her to try a sublingual B12 instead – wondering if any of my readers have tried this. According to the box, sublingual means “under the tongue” so all she has to do is place the tablet under her tongue and it dissolves completely. This eliminates (Grandma, are you listening?) the problem that B12 oral pills have with poor absorption and it eliminates those painful and costly injections.

So grandma, we’re not trying to bug you. We love you and we’d like to have you try sublingual B-12 from Trivita today so you don’t need to make that drive anymore. We’d also like you to consider moving in with us here – we’ll have a blast!
