Finally some Alaska pictures

I know it only took me a week to get these up here but hey, I don't jet set like I used to. Bouncing back after even a mini vacation takes a little bit of effort.

Really I told you everything that we did mostly. We went up for my grandpa's birthday and got to visit with my family which I very rarely get to see. Mostly because they live in Anchorage and I live here.

Also we drove out to Portage glacier, Whittier and went on a cool bike ride through the city.

Really, that about sums up our weekend.

But here are some cool pictures.

:)

We always forget just how pretty Alaska really is until we leave and come back. Around every corner was a "beautiful, gorgeous, wish you were here" moment.

Giddy up!!

So it cracks me up that all the movies made lately have been marketed solely to my generation of nostalgic freaks. What with the Dukes of Hazard movie, Transformers the movie and the upcoming GI Joe movie that are completely over the top and action packed , I thought it was high time they did something with a girls toy.

And so I give you My little pony the movie.

This made me giggle until it hurt.

Any "Lost" fans out there?

We went for a bike ride over to the University in Anchorage.

We found this cool sculpture which begged the question:

"What lies in the shadow of the statue?"
























The answer is quite simple: "Jaqui"

When in Alaska...

I don't really have a lot of time to give you a big break down on everything we did today, but I'll give you a quick recap and throw some pictures your way.
We drove out of town to see some pretty mountains.

Rockstar husband hand fed a caribou.

We drove through a 2 1/2 mile tunnel through a mountain. It was literally a hole in the mountain. Sort of freaked me out once we were half way through realizing I was a full mile buried in rock if something were to go badly. But I clearly lived to see another day.

Also Edward visited his Denali family and saw some glaciers in the process.

Oh c'mon I couldn't leave Edward at home now could I?

More to come soon.

On holiday in the Great white north

So I know I have been sort of vague with details of what I was going to be doing this weekend. Maybe you noticed, maybe you didn't . I don't know. But here's the scoop.

So I get this email from my aunt Sue that my Grandpa has a big birthday and party coming up. Now this entire family (save for a small hand full) all live in Anchorage Alaska. They are throwing him (my grandpa) a huge birthday party and everybody else in the family ( which consists of 20 or so people) was going to be up here for the party. She asks if there is any way that we could swing a trip up here. Luckily we just happened to be in the right place with the right connections and were able to pull it all together in about a week. We couldn't afford to bring the kids, but Rockstar and I could just take a long weekend and come up.

But here's the catch. Because it came together so fast, my Dad and step mom didn't know we were coming. So for the first time ever I was able to sneek up on my Dad and surprise him at work. What is funny is he didn't even recognize me at first. He had a hard time placing me.

Thus far we have had a great time. We flew in this morning and have just spent the day having lunch with my aunts and uncles and then having dinner with my dad and step mom. We are staying in a hotel and have the freedom to just chill out and do as little or as much as we want.

Tomorrow we are going to go out for a nice drive and see some glaciers. Alaska is really pretty this time of year but the constant daylight takes a bit to get used to. By the time we get a handle on it, it will be time to go home. Like now for example, it is after 11 at night and it looks like it is dinnertime. The street lights have not even been triggered.

So I will get some more interesting details of our lovely weekend getaway and some pictures too. But for now I have got to get to bed.

I am starting to fall apart.

Yeah I am a slacker

I know I have sort of dropped the ball with my blog here. But in my defense, I have been wicked crazy busy just with home stuff and life. Also I have decided to take on another blog.

It may not be of interest to anyone but myself, but I have had this nagging desire to start another one for quite sometime. It is a "how to" for all things domestic and home based. Might as well use my trivial knowledge for something useful :)

http://genxhomeec.blogspot.com/

So check it out. Or don't. Whatever. It's more of a creative outlet than anything.

Also as a side note, I am going to be out of town for the weekend, but I promise to get with the program all around next week.

No really I will.

Seriously.

Ok, I'll stop.

:P
