Cariloha Friday! . . . Already?! For a moment there, yesterday was feeling a lot like Monday, so I’m relieved that we’re already back to Friday. For many folks in the United States, it’s been a whacky work week due to the mid-week 4th of July holiday. We definitely need another weekend to straighten things out. This weekend, looks like a treat weekend — you’ve got celebrations for chocolate, strawberry sundaes, and ice cream – the perfect recipe for a delicious weekend ahead.
As you begin to test the weekend waters, be sure to get your Cariloha style on, letting it bring out the best in yourself and those around you. Share a dessert with your mom, friend, child, or sibling.
Let’s get started. Get a bucket of fried chicken and watch your favorite movie or listen to a Beatles album (today), then, prepare for a sugar overdose when you fill up your counter top with chocolate, ice cream, and strawberry sundaes (tomorrow), next, be a kid again and play a few video games with your kids or friends (Sunday), finally, give some sugar cookies to your favorite interns (Monday). Have a delectable Cariloha weekend!
However you approach your weekend, make it a memorable time and don’t forget to wrap up in your Cariloha bamboo-soft clothing, sheets or towels every day.
