aloha friday scoop

ever the romantic, my plan was to type out the scoop while waiting for the royal wedding, however slumber wooed me just before the ceremony's 3a west coast start time. yawn. luckily, i awoke just in time to see the beautiful bride make her way to westminster abbey to meet her prince. alas, burning the midnight oil found me bleary-eyed as the scoop's deadline approached so my hearty apologies for today's exceptionally tardy post.

greenroom hawaii's first anniversary festivities include a love for japan auction featuring artwork by christie shinn, heather brown, kat reeder, and more.

on sunday, first sister maya soetoro-ng shares and signs her new children's book ladder to the moon, a story inspired by her mom, when she stops by mu'umu'u heaven.
