Weekend Recap

This weekend was just what I needed. Friday night we hung out at home – got some pizza, watched a movie. Saturday was my awesome run outside, and then we packed up for a staycation at a hotel about an hour out of town.

One lame thing about Alaska is that it’s obviously really expensive to travel out of state. We try to go once a year, but the rest of the time, we try to just explore this amazing place. One of our favorite places to go is Girdwood. We stayed in the hotel, hung out, and generally had a great time. My daughter fell in love with this little ketchup bottle and insisted on sleeping with it. You know, just regular life.

After we checked out the next day, we took the kids to the park (one of our faves – it’s so unique and has so much personality)…

Two years ago I would never have said this, but… PLEASE SNOW! Alaska winters are ugly and boring without snow!

Discovered some ginormous cookies at a nearby bakery….

P.S. Shouldn’t every food magazine have a picture version of its table of contents? Food Network magazine is the absolute best.

Anyone have any great Thanksgiving dessert ideas? I always like to step outside of the traditional a little bit…
