This week in Thailand was the Loy Krathong Festival. This is our third year (posts from the archive: year 1, year 2) that we have been in Thailand for this colorful and happy holiday.

A Fun Day at Splash Jungle Waterpark, Phuket

A few weeks ago Z was invited to a birthday party at Splash Jungle Water Park here in Phuket. As it is for every mom in the world, part of the annoyance fun of being a parent is getting to go to other children’s birthday parties! No, but seriously, this birthday party I was actually pretty excited about. I am… Read more →

Beaches of Phuket: Kata

I have mentioned Kata beach a few times in my blog, most recently, I stayed near this beach for my Moms Night Out. Kata Beach is considered one of the more touristy beaches here on the island of Phuket. And it is with good cause. It is one of my favorite and I believe it to be one of the… Read more →

NSFW-Phuket Vegetarian Festival 2015

I have to say, I think this post is perfect in it’s timing. Halloween has just come and gone. Though this holiday is often equated with kids trick or treating, fun parties, and the inevitable parent tax on every bag of candy, it is also a day to celebrate horror and scare ourselves. I think the creepiest type of horror… Read more →

A Moms Night Out in Phuket

Sleep is the holy grail of motherhood. It is the one thing that moms search for from the moment that their little bundles of sleep-stealing joy arrive. We want it even more than chocolate, quiet, or losing that baby weight. SLEEP! Am I right?! It was in search of uninterrupted sleep, eating without having to tell someone numerous times not… Read more →

A Beautiful Meal at Suay Restaurant

Suay, meaning beautiful in Thai, is the perfect name for the quaint little culinary heaven that Chad and I went to recently. Located in Phuket Town, if you live in Phuket or are just visiting, I would highly suggest taking some time out to enjoy a meal at Suay. This restaurant is owned and operated by Chef Tammasak, who not… Read more →

Beaches of Phuket: Nai Harn

Who doesn’t love a long walk on the beach? Or a cool beer while listening to the waves lap the shore? Well, I guess it depends on the beach right? The beaches of Phuket are many, and one of the main reasons that we decided to settle on this sunny island. I was going through my posts recently when it… Read more →

3 Things I’ve Learned While Driving In Thailand

Living in Thailand is an eye-opening experience in many ways, but driving here is a whole other thing. These 3 things are the most interesting and strange to me. 1.
