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 Not-So-Fun Night Away: Medical Emergency in Phuket-Part 1

I had fully intended to write a post about my Moms Night Out that I had recently, but then I was given a different type of night away, a not-so-fun night away. I had a medical emergency and spent two nights and three days in the hospital. I could gloss over the details and give you the short story, but… Read more →

Our New House

I know I have mentioned in several posts now, that we recently moved to a different house here in Phuket. We have finally settled in (I think?!) and I am now ready to share our mess new house with you! Our old house had much that we loved (especially our amazing landlords, Todd and Jojo), but there are many reasons that… 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 →

Kathu Street Culture Festival

This past week was the holiday marking the beginning of the Buddhist Lent (Khao Phansa), which means that it was time for the annual Kathu Street Culture Festival. We attended the festival last year and knew that we had to attend again this year. Kathu is a large district pretty much right smack dab in the middle of the Phuket.… Read more →

Monday Montage: Cheers!

Cheers! The new week is upon us. Monday can break us down, or we can look at the positive and look forward to some beers/wine at the end of the long day. Or whatever your gold star might be… chocolate? An early bedtime? Delving into a new book or tv series? There are plenty of ways that we can reward ourselves through making… Read more →

Monday Montage: Fuzzy and Shimmery

This has been a spectacular week! The weather has been cool (only about 29-30°C or 85°F!) and the rain has been a welcome addition for our garden. We have had many days where the rain comes down while the sun is high in the sky and shining. It makes everything look like a fairy garden. All fuzzy and shimmery. Just beautiful!… Read more →

A Tour of the Phuket Philatelic Museum

  When I was a kid I used to collect stamps. It was a short lived hobby as I felt like I should be getting million dollar rare stamps somehow instead of the penny stamps that everyone else had. I waited patiently for a misprinted stamp or something along those lines for about 6 months and then decided that puberty… Read more →

A Night With the Kathoey- The Aphrodite Cabaret

Despite all the news in America about Bruce Jenner becoming Caitlyn, Thai men have been becoming ladies so long that it has become common place. They are known as Kathoey in Thai, or lady boys in English. A visit to Thailand is not complete (okay, maybe it is, but still…) without a night at a Lady boy cabaret. So I roped my… Read more →

Going Back in Time… The Phuket Tin Mine Museum

I love museums. Like really love them (oops, my California accent just slipped out, didn’t it?). Unfortunately Chad is not that much of a fan of them, so I often forgo time at museums in favor of spending time not boring my poor husband. I guess anyone could get bored while I spend eons hours reading every single plaque on each exhibit.… Read more →
