Brand new addictions

Thanks to my brother and his wife, my hubby and I have gotten addicted to a few new things.

1) My brother and SIL have a PS2 and a whole bunch of karaoke games. It’s the coolest thing ever. It’s just like karaoke but you have to try to get on the right pitch and you get scored for it. I can’t believe my hubby is a mic hog! He and my SIL were singing all night! The funny thing is, you can take a photo of your face and paste it onto a character so it looks like it’s really you singing. Too funny!

2) Lele and Bu also got us into playing cribbage. Crib is a game that is pretty commonly played here on the island. All the old folks in town play crib and euchre. One old guy tried to teach me several times, but I can’t ever seem to remember all the rules. Anyway, Lele and Bu got us playing and now I’m hooked.

3) This addiction is not attributed to Lele and Bu. This one is Dina and Gavin’s fault! J and I went to visit them and their little Elie. I can now say that I am addicted to that sweet little baby smell. Perhaps it’s Johnsons and Johnsons, but I really do think that there is a distinct fresh new baby smell that little ones have. It was great seeing D and her hubby and finally meeting their little guy. He is so precious!

4) Finally, J and I went to dinner with my brother and his wife. We went to Red Lobster since we don’t have it on the island. The coconut shrimp is to die for! J and Bu had the “all you can eat” shrimp and boy was it ever good! Lele and I ordered lobster and scallops but we did help the boys out with their shrimp!
