Birthday Giveaway: WIN a Tandoori and a Mexican Dinner for 2 at The Californian

Hello everyone! How is your Eid Holiday planning going on? While I am still waiting for my company's announcement of our holiday off, I am already day dreaming about this weekend's adventure.

I think I will have a breezy Eid adventure at sea this weekend. The husband said we will go fishing and I am really excited because I haven't gone fishing here before. I'm pretty sure the kids will enjoy too. If we are lucky enough, we might catch our very first fish on this fishing trip.

sailing on...
