Surprised everyone with my sneaky guest posts. I'm so thankful for all the beautiful ladies that helped me keep my vacation secret!

Visited Anchorage, Alaska where we stayed a night to begin our Alaskan adventure.



Visited Denali, Alaska where we saw Denali mountain, rode the Alaskan railway and rode ATVs.

Cruised seven days through Alaska with my family and Le Husband. Most amazing vacation, ever.

Visited Icy Strait, Alaska where we zip lined, ate doughnuts, drank shots and saw totem poles.
That's my 88 year old grandfather zip lining.




Visited Juneau, Alaska where we hiked an unknown trail in the rain and I posted a dress review.







Visited Skagway, Alaska, where I rode in a helicopter, went on a dog sled ride and walked through town.




Playing with sled dogs on a glacier.

Visited Ketchikan, Alaska where we arctic snorkeled in beautiful water.

Visited Vancouver, Canada where we saw the torch and walked around the beautiful city.



Finally took our Honeymoon in Banff, Canada! We stayed in a chalet, hiked multiple hikes, ate great food and enjoyed being a married couple. Canada was gorgeous and we loved our trip!








Spent my first weekend home after 16 days and 8 beds on the road.

Ran and ROCKED my first Spartan race.

A U G U S T

Flew to Denver for a kickball tournament. Became an Eskimo for the weekend and loved my new team. Ate one of the best meals of my life, complete with my first amuse bouche.

I confessed about ridiculous copy cats [lame], ballet class and the DCC.

One weekend after flying to Denver, we flew to Nashville for another kickball tournament. This time we won and kicked some major butt ALL DAY! #operationcrush. Oh and we ate another delicious meal.
amazing!!!!

Wrote a post about myself and invited other women to see the good in who they are instead of the bad.

Had an 'above average' weekend.

Linked up with Erin for a fantastic FOOTBALL Post! #gocowboys #blueandsilver

Continued to ROCK it out at the gym.

I confessed about real life and the lack of perfection in my world.

Gave thanks for all the joys in my life, big and small!

S E P T E M B E R
My blog got a face lift! Erin did an amazing job and I LOVE it every day.

I confessed my anniversary confessions.

Posted my dream kitchens. Hint…white and glamour!

Celebrated our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!! #365amazingdays #weddingcakefrozentastesamazing







Asked friends and family to describe me in five words.

Had the worst kickball tournament of my career and lost a bit of faith in myself as an athlete.

Blogged about my first ballet class and my new love of dance.

Celebrated Babyspice's birthday with a trampoline party.

Found myself back in time due to many different musical episodes.

Enjoyed the last whisper of summer.

Gorgeous photos of Alaska! I did a similar cruise leaving from BC and then doing 3 of your stops in Alaska. I was in college at the time and preferred to stay on the ship instead of doing some of the excursions so I'm regretting seeing some of the sites you got to take in! What cruiseline did you go on?

I'm not sure how you could top July! That looked like such a fun trip. My grandma would have been right there ziplinning. When we went to Hawaii she parasailed. She was 81 at the time.
