Maui Elite SU! Incentive Trip! Day 2

Hi all - if you want creative posts - I will try to get some in - but over the next 10 days I'm going to be posting about the awesome Stampin' Up! Maui Elite trip I was able to earn thanks to all my wonderful and supportive customers and team.  I did this for Greece two years ago, and still love those posts - so please - bear with me.

Day 2 - Sunday, May 16, 2021

So after a rough night with my back (I slept awhile in bed, awhile out on the Lanai in a chair with my feet up, and the last stretch on our couch); we were both able to sleep in till about 7AM - so that was nice.  Got up and had some wonderful Kona coffee in the room; then Paul ran over the ABC store to get a few things including wine and cheese and crackers for our little fridge.  Then at 10 AM we headed out to the amazing Sunday brunch they put on here - all courtesy of Stampin' Up!
Beautiful flowers adorned the tables.
and here is sampling of the food we had - Guess I started with dessert first - fudgy brownie, smoothie and a custard with berries -

fresh melon and lychee, salmon with capers and onions, veggie marinated salad -
shredded pork has, french toast with coconut syrup and bacon - there were so many more things to try - but I was stuffed.

I was hurting pretty badly - so my smile may look a little forced.  But we still had a really nice time - got to chat with Shelly and some of the other demonstrators - one from Arizona - one from Wisconsin - so I could relate to both.  

Also they had entertainment going the entire time - 

On the way back to the room, I had to stop and rest my back a couple times for a few minutes - during one of those stops I looked up and this was my view!
A little bit later stopped to admire this waterfall --
And across from it - this beautiful Koi pond - 
Finally made it to the room, put our feet up and relaxed on the Lanai with a cup (or two) of Kona Coffee and iced my back - we really took it easy today, as I'm hoping to be able to do our Taste of Maui excursion tomorrow.
Then mid-afternoon there was a knock at our door with our Pillow Gifts for today  -
Some fun products from the upcoming Mini Catalog - a pair of awesome RayBan sunglasses for each of us - and a little extension on our room stay next Sunday, since our flight leaves so late.  They think of everything - so amazing to work for Stampin' Up! - Best retirement gig ever!!  Dinner last night at a restaurant at the resort with an amazing view -
So here's what a $110 meal pre tax and tip looks like in Hawaii - Paul got a New York Strip steak on a bed of peppers and squash.
I had two appetizers - calamari and pita with hummas and lamb - and we both had waters -
It was good - but all I could think of was how many stamps I could buy with that money lol!  We did have this cute little guy dine with us though - he spent several minute in the chair across from us and was delightful.
Finally back to the room and enjoyed an after dinner coffee on the Lanai as the sun set - beautiful way to end a day!
See you tomorrow ~Maureen
