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…

Seattle!

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…

  • Bring me back to Christmas Day dinner 🍴 I wish I could have some lobster tails 🦞 almost every day. This was such an awesome meal. ⁣

What do you eat when you celebrate for different holidays?  We do ham on Easter, turkey on Thanksgiving, and callaloo for New Years. I can’t wait for Chinese New Year - that’s my favorite meal 🧧 ⁣

  • The rain is gone! It’s so sunny ☀️ And it’s supposed to be in the high 60s for about a week - so excited 🎉⁣
⁣
The older kids got electric scooters for Christmas🎄 but haven’t been able to take them out because of the rain. Now we are going out multiple times a day. It’s good exercise. No major injuries, yet. ⁣

  • I was so excited to try out these #japanesecosmetics! I’ve heard so many good things about @cureaquagelofficial and it’s always sold out on different websites. I was #gifted these products to try out. ⁣

The #naturalaquacuregel has been amazing with this winter weather. My skin has not been agreeing with it. It’s so dry and flaky - which has really ceased with the use of the #gentleexfoliator. ⁣

We had a fun Christmas! It’s always wonderful to get together and see everyone. A is already back at work and the kids have cabin fever. They want out, but it’s rainy and wet. They want to play with their new toys 😂🤷🏽‍♀️ ⁣⁣

How did you end up celebrating?⁣⁣
