Royal Caribbean – Allure of the Seas: 7 Night Caribbean Cruise (Fort Lauderdale, FL)

September 23, 2018 | 1

We received ~$600 credit in order to reserve this cruise accumulated from a Casino Bonus offer and partial refund from our noisy stateroom aboard the Serenade of the Seas in April. How couldn’t we take the opportunity for cruise travel before these credits expired?! Wouldn’t you SetSail? We were able to reserve Stateroom Cabin: 104, Deck: 9 which is my favorite ocean view room! Get familiar with Allure of the Seas with our photo tour. Read More

Something I’m always working on would be the ability to cook and enjoy cooking. A friend wanted me to try Blue Apron but found much more variety in meals choices with Home Chef. I can spend less than $50 per week on orders. Read More

Erasure – World Be Gone Tour (St Petersburg, FL)

July 7, 2018 |

The last time I went to a Erasure concert on Dec. 4, 1992 – senior year of high school, during their “Phantasmagorical Tour” at Jones Hall, in Houston, Tx. I was visiting my sister at Texas A&M where a bunch of friends had already purchased tickets. We all caravanned on this road trip adventure. For those of us who didn’t have tickets, we purchased ours from scalpers. Such a spontaneous journey and what a setlist they had back then. But Erasure can never fail to entertain. Read More

Moving from Oahu to the Tampa area, we looked forward to watching some professional sports. This year was an exciting time for NHL with the Tampa Bay Lightnings had an exciting Stanley Cup season but got beat by the Washington Capitals who went on to win the Stanley. We learned from the Ice Sports Forum we could both join a Learn Hockey class but had to pass certain ice skating skills first. I already know how to ice skate so Bill had to sign up for a class. Will be posting his progress here.

Creating a Miniature Garden Terrarium with Succulents (Plant City, FL)

June 9, 2018 |

I wouldn’t call myself a gardener or claim to have a green thumb. I’ve never touched soil in my life. Honestly, I was gifted succulents once before as a house warming gift and unfortunately, they died. One of the plants that needs minimal maintenance died. “Hi, my name is Maya and I have killed succulents…” I imagine saying at an – I Suck at Gardening Group. I spotted an Instagram announcement (@parkesdale) about a Terrarium Workshop. Thought to myself, “This is where the tides change. I will put my best foot forward and give succulents another go.” Read More
