You can find the entire post with instructions here.

PROJECTEO / THE TINY INSTAGRAM PROJECTOR

The kind folks at Projecteo* sent me their tiny Instagram projector with a wheel of photographs from my Instagram feed. I thought it would be fun to put some beach photographs of the boys on a wheel so we could look back at our fun times at Haeundae Beach. The Projecteo is so cute and tiny and since the boys have never seen slides on a projector they got a kick out of going into our laundry room, turning off the lights, and seeing photographs being projected on the wall. You can see the little video I created on my Instagram feed. I think this would be a wonderful gift for family and friends. If you use the friend code: FRIEND0486 you'll receive $5 off your first Projecteo (and I'll receive credit to my account).

[TRAVEL] NEXT STOP: ROME

It's hard to believe September is already here and in less than a week we will be heading to Rome (remember J's 10th Birthday Surprise?). The crazy thing is j still thinks the trip is only for his big brother J and Appah. J is planning on surprising him with the good news the day before we leave. It has been a busy month with work and getting back in to our school routine so I am still planning our itinerary. If you have any last minute recommendations (sites, restaurants, shops, tours), I'd love to hear from you!

Here are a few Rome related posts that I've bookmarked:

[TRAVEL] OSAKA, JAPAN

One of the perks of living in Busan is easy access to Japan. Last year we went on family trips to Tokyo and Fukuoka and Osaka was the next Japanese city on our "to visit" list. Although I think spring or fall are the best times to visit Japan (spring being my favorite, hello beautiful cherry blossom trees!), due to Appah's work schedule we went a few weeks ago in mid-August. As expected the weather was hot and humid, but thankfully our hotel was connected to a train station and all our destinations were close to train/subway stations. 

If you ask the boys what their favorite thing about Japan is, they will immediately answer "the good food"! I have to agree! We ate bowls and bowls of delicious udon and donburi, plates of perfectly fried katsu, fresh sushi, and shabu shabu. For breakfast we love going to the quick and cheap "diners" where you buy food tickets from the machine (j's absolute favorite). Busan is lacking in good burgers so we even sacrificed one meal and ate some burgers and fries in Osaka. And since the weather was hot we enjoyed eating ice cream every day (I love green tea floats)!

Although I originally had a long list of sites to visit in Osaka, once I realized it was going to be hot and humid I decided to play it by ear and focus on relaxing and having fun together as a family. So in between our three delicious Japanese meals each day we took the boys to their favorite store on earth (the Pokemon Center) and a few of my favorite stores (Uniqlo, Muji, and Tokyu Hands).
