Catching Up With: "Dr Ken" Star Albert Tsai

Carey booked a vacation at a beach-side spa with some pals and even took her beloved pet dogs along for the trip.

She tells Life + Style magazine, "A friend told me that before she had her son, she took a babymoon, which is something I'd never heard of before. Basically, it's an excuse to do something decadent before the babies arrive! I'm pretty sure most moms-to-be out there understand what I mean when I say that after a while of being pregnant, you start climbing the walls and just want to get out of the house. So I went to an amazing spa on the ocean with a couple of friends and, of course, Cha Cha and the puppies."

The singer indulged in hearty meals and luxurious spa treatments during the break, and even found time to play board games.

She adds, "Since at this point I have to really take it easy, we played board games like Taboo and Catch Phrase, ordered spa food and got as many spa treatments as possible!"
