Seattle: EMP and the Needle

We had to squeeze even more in the second day to make sure that we saw all the sights. I had everyone up when the sun came up and ready to go when all the attractions first opened. I fed everyone breakfast and we decided to make the trek out.    First stop, the Space Needle. I was slightly sick when we first started our trip and I had an issue with being able to pop my ears. I wasn’t able to, the entire trip. The ride up and down the Space Needle made it worse. I was ridiculously loud…

Fun in Seattle

We decided to get a CityPass since we had a limited amount of time but we wanted to see so much in Seattle. A CityPass is a pass that lets you see a handful of attractions in the area for one price. We wanted to see at least 3 items on their list, so it was cheaper to get a pass. We checked out the Argosy Harbor Cruise, which everyone basically slept through. They had us wait in line for 20 minutes, in the rain and cold. So once we got on a warm boat, nice rocking waves and a…


We decided to check out Seattle for the weekend, because why not? The airline had some good deals and we just wanted to get away for a little bit. Unfortunately, everyone got sick the week we were leaving, but we decided to go for it anyway.     I’ve never flown Virgin America before, but it was nice. I loved being able to play games, watch tv and chat with people in other seats. The flight attendants were nice. Our baggage came out on time. It was a nice experience.        We decided to rent an apartment for a few…

Review: Girasol Marley

Girasol Marley, Cuervo (black weft), size 5 100% cotton $$ machine woven Support: Average Best for: Any age Carries: Single pass carries for babies, multi pass carries for heavier babies I totally researched this wrap when I was pregnant. I’m a huge Bob Marley fan, and I love all things reggae. So I knew that I needed this wrap. I grew up in the islands, and was immersed into the culture. So I wanted something that reminded me of the time. I researched this wrap when I was pregnant with Tot. It just stood out to me, but I knew…

Monterey Bay Aquarium

My sister’s boyfriend won tickets to Monterey Bay Aquarium on the radio and couldn’t go. So he gifted the tickets over to me and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I love the aquarium. It is one of my favorite places to go. We used to have a membership, but we didn’t renew it this year. We might have to, because the kids simply love it!    We got there early enough to check out the majority of feedings. We saw an albatross, the sea of kelp, penguins and sea otters get fed. The kelp feeding was amazing. You don’t even…

  • This wrap is so beautiful. ⁣
I received Dreamer with a cotton/hemp weft yesterday. This weft is hand dyed by Echo over at @chicibeanz for the collaboration with @appleblossomwovens. ⁣
The pooling of the hand dyed yarn really makes it looked striped almost. It almost looks like a totally different wrap compared to the black linen weft I’ve been using. ⁣

  • I got surprised with a trip to @Disneyland for Valentine’s Day. It’s so crowded because of the long weekend. There’s even lines for the bathrooms - every bathroom. We haven’t gone on many rides, but we’ve checked out more shows than before and looked around for hidden mickeys. The weather has been perfect too. ⁣
I hope you’re on some adventures this long weekend. What are you up to?⁣

  • We rarely get to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. I hate tolls and I also hate driving over bridges, but this was too much fun to not. ⁣
The kids fell asleep right before we even made it, but I was going to go for it. I’m glad we made a trip out of it, even though the car ended up breaking down. Nobody stopped to help. The few people I did get to ask refused to help 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣
At least we got to check it out. 🌉
  • Dreamer is a dream. This wrap is gorgeous. I loved being able to test it all weekend in the city. ⁣

  • I’ve been looking for any copies of my maternity photos with Dumpling since I suck and I can’t find my copies. @bijoubabywearing was able to find some of me wrapping Tot in Baskerville Boardwalk and I couldn’t be happier. I love the bubbles in this one. @paintingskies did such a great job with this shoot. My family had so much fun with her. ⁣

  • When your friend @koalacuddlesbabywearing  needs shots for upcoming educational material for @happybaby and you drop what you’re doing at @disneyland to check out their onbuhimos 😂💕⁣
This Marigold onbuhimo was easy to get in the shoulder to shoulder height and pretty comfortable. I might need to snag one. ⁣
