#3DSKidForADay at Nintendo World - Outside Comic Con Event 2016

In celebration of the New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo is bringing iconic Nintendo worlds from Mario, Kirby, Donkey Kong and more to life for you to enjoy this weekend at Nintendo World during Comic Con Weekend in San Diego!

We were able to get a sneak peak into the fun! There are lots of different stations to enjoy the new games on the New Nintendo 3DS XL.

There were games with characters I grew up with like Yoshi, Sonic, and of course Mario! 

Then there were games with characters my kids know from Yo-Kai Watch and Pokemon. 

There is also a game-show style, interactive video game station where you can compete against other Nintendo lovers!

At Nintendo World, you and your family will be able try out the portable kid-friendly gaming system, and interact with some of your favorite (and new!) Nintendo character! It's free! You do not need a Comic Con badge to check it out!

Visit the event website for more details on Nintendo World! We had a great time!

I Laughted So Hard, I Peed on Myself!

I don't know if this happens to you, but it happens to me. It's a bit embarrassing but I know many of you can relate! I laugh a little too hard or let out a really big sneeze and I'll pee on myself. Yes, it's gross but it happens. Don't judge me, I know it's happened to you too!

Reality is, one in three women (me included) experience Light Bladder Leakage (LBL). Yes, I pee on myself when coughing, sneezing, laughing or even exercise. I relied on feminine care products for a long time to take care of my leaks. I finally found the product specifically designed for LBL. No, these products are not just for elderly, let's get over that right now! Be honest with yourselves mamas, LBL is something we all deal with.

As the leader in the light incontinence category, Poise brand offers a variety of pads and liners to make it easy to find protection for every woman’s needs.

LBL became more frequent for me after I had my two boys. Baby Center shares that "The tis…

A Beautiful Summer Wedding: #TophNMarjTieTheKnot

A few months ago, my cousin asked if I could officiate his wedding. Of course I was honored, but I was a bit scared. Yes, I've emceed a few family events throughout the years and my job requires a bit of public speaking here and there, but officiating a wedding?! That's a whole new world for me!

Just as always, whenever my cousins ask me to do something for them, I put my "big sister" pants on and do the job!

Over the past few weeks, the couple and I have been working on their wedding ceremony script, putting all the details into the words and the symbolism of the parts of the ceremony. The pieces of the ceremony easily came together since all the words came from the heart.

The wedding was held at Saddlerock Ranch in the Santa Monica Mountains in the city of Malibu. The outdoor venue was picturesque. The 360 degree views had vineyards to the east, the ocean to the west, and the "saddlerock" reminiscent of the red rocks of Sedona to the north. The long, gree…

Summer Foodie Adventures with Mom and Dad

My parents are totally loving their retirement. On the weekends, I'll find their Facebook posts outlining their "pasyal", as it's called in Filipino. Their last few weekend outings had them visiting Ronald Reagan's Presidential Museum, window shopping on Rodeo Drive, actual shopping at the new San Clemente outlets, or even trying their luck in Las Vegas.

For Father's Day, I wanted to treat my dad to a different kind of outing I knew they'd enjoy: food tour with Bite San Diego. Bite San Diego features the best walking tours in San Diego, which help locals and visitors alike explore the growing food scene of America’s Finest City via guided food walking tours. Bite San Diego offers tours in the neighborhoods of Pacific Beach, Encinitas, Little Italy, La Jolla, Coronado, and Liberty Station.

A few months ago, my hubby and I did a food tour of the San Diego neighborhood of Pacific Beach. It was great to learn about the area, as well try a few of their foodie …
