Well once again I'm doing the 5 on the fifth from Stephen Chapman's blog. This month the theme is "This Past Weekend" And for once I was busy on the weekend, AND had my camera, and actually took some pictures! Yeah I know shocking.
I pulled out of my closet all of the fem clothes that i didn't enjoy wearing that that weren't me. The sad thing is that three of the items pictured were never worn! Including the shoes. The other things were either worn once, or only a few times. But now they are gone! And I feel so happy to have them out of my closet, now if i could only come out as well....
My hubby's niece was getting married, so off we went to Anchorage to attend the gala event. This was a field of flowers at a lodge we stopped and had lunch at. Very scenic place, but honestly there is very little of Alaska that isn't scenic!
We ate at our favorite place for breakfast Snow City Cafe. There is always a line a mile long, and a wait for at the very least 25 minutes, and this is for breakfast! Weekend or week days, it doesn't seem to matter. They have started handing out the little buzzy blinky things that busy restaurants have, but for breakfast? Yeah, yeah I know, but the food is wonderful! They make the strawberry jam, have actual maple syrup, and enough choices to make any one happy!
And like everyone I know, while visiting Anchorage, one shops! We are in needing some new furniture, so we stopped several places to get an idea about what we wanted. I didn't get anything this time as we were traveling in my little Aveo, and yes my car is orange! Hubby was also in the need for some new clothing, so I drug him into a store and forced him to try on stuff, that shock of the world he both liked and took home!
The niece was lucky with the weather, it was extremely cloudy, but no rain! Whew! Cause let me tell you, the entire wedding party was sweating the weather. Hubby's brother was a bundle of nerves before the wedding, as he was giving his daughter away. And he was so sure he would do something wrong, or trip or he just didn't know what, but it got to be kinda funny actually. After the ceremony he calmed right down and enjoyed the party. Three of our sons and their wive/fiancee/girlfriend's came, along with the baby. We all sat at the same table and had a nice long visit. We also got to visit with family that we usually don't see very much, because they live so far from us. One way is around 8 hours, so yeah we only see them sporadically. It takes 5 hours to get to Anchorage, and yeah our state is freaking huge!
All in all it was a wonderful weekend. I'm glad we took the time to attend her wedding. Next summer we will be throwing a wedding for our 3rd son. So, these people we dont see to often will show up, and we shall have a chance to visit with them again.
