Alaskan Cruise 2022: Studio Pics! ๐Ÿšขโš“

Since I haven’t had time to fully blog the next day of the Alaskan cruise yet, I’d like to share something related, and the most important souvenir I brought home: the studio-quality photos that one could have taken throughout the cruise.

Photographers are available throughout the ship in key locations to take studio-quality photos. As many as you want! Later, you can see all of the photos taken, and purchase your favorites. The caveat is that they are incredibly expensive, $25 each. It adds up fast!

So I had to pick and choose, which was very difficult. The photo above was a no-brainer, it is so beautiful!

Then, I was also able to get a photo each with our partner and with my husband. These are so precious to me. I can’t put into words how much they mean to me.

Finally, out of many, I had to pick my favorite of the photos that had just the three of us. In the end I chose this one.

Trinkets are fun as souvenirs, but nothing will ever beat this photoset for me. I love it so much. ๐Ÿฅฐ

I was really sad to leave behind the ones I took with my mom and sis in law. But, can’t have everything.

New Jurassic World Dominion Friends! ๐Ÿฆ–๐ŸŒˆ

When I returned from our cruise last week, my Jurassic World Dominion Ultimate Supreme Pyroraptor was waiting for me! Itโ€™s so big! This was one of the two “highest on my list” Dominion items. I’m so glad that I was able to get him!

I havenโ€™t tested it with batteries yet (too busy with work) but wanted to share pics for now. Iโ€™ll share video once I play with him! For now, have one photo out of the box:

His facial expression is super neat, too:

Along with the Pyroraptor, the Imaginext baby dinos also arrived during my absence!

They are now hiding in all sorts of places in my studio. ๐Ÿ˜ I love them!

Board Games, Ramen And a Movie! ๐Ÿœ๐ŸŽฅโœจ

Yesterday was date night! When Christopher got home, first he and I spent some time playing board games together while our partner was still busy working. We played Battleship first and Christopher won –twice!

Then we played Quoridor which was a birthday present he got from my sis-in-law. It’s a very simple game. But fun!

Cilantro threatening Christopher’s meeple ๐Ÿ˜

This time, I won! ๐Ÿฅณ

After board games we went to Sakura Ramen for dinner, where we had our usual pork bao bun appetizer, and of course, ramen!

Then it was back home to watch Everything Everywhere All At Once together. We went to bed late, but happy.
