Heat wave!

10 May

We have very large streams running everywhere from all the melting snow! The rainboots I sold back in Kentucky would really come in handy right about now!

Easter Sunday

11 Apr

The Easter bunny visited Brandon and me!

The bunny must have known I’m trying to eat healthier. Lol. No candy in my Easter basket this year – just edible flowers, fruit, bubbles, and Easter themed kitchen towels.

Brandon got a GOOD basket from the bunny!

After we enjoyed our Easter baskets, Brandon and I ate brunch at 229.

20130411-164330.jpg
It was so yummy!!

20130411-164403.jpg
That giant thing is the best blueberry pancake I have ever eaten! I think it might have even been deep fried! It was like heaven in my mouth! Lol.

20130411-164411.jpg
At Restaurant 229 everything is homemade, organic, Alaska grown food. It’s so yummy! Brandon’s parents are coming up this summer so we are definitely going to take them there!

After our amazing meal, we went snowshoeing in the park. Mile 12 in Denali National Park finally opened up after being closed all winter so we snowshoed back there. It was an absolutely beautiful day!! It could not have been any more gorgeous!!

We had a wonderful Easter!

Birthday weekend!

26 Mar

To kick off my birthday weekend, Brandon & I went to 229 Parks. 229 is this amazingly delicious restaurant located about 18 miles south. All of their food is organic, natural, Alaska grown, etc. There is 1 lady that does all the cooking and she also happens to be the owner.
Brandon had the crispy duck on a bed of lentils.

20130326-204242.jpg
I had the chickpea spinach flatbread. It was melt in your mouth delicious! Matter of fact I had the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. Haha. :)

20130326-204438.jpg
229 has a nice selection of wines to choose from as well. The friends that we went with are “wine experts” so we let them pick the wine to go with our meal. It was called Hahn and it totally complimented our meal. Yum!!

On Saturday the Whitmore-Lingerfelt’s decided to take a trip to town (aka Fairbanks) to continue the birthday celebrations.

20130326-205005.jpg
We all went to Birch Hill which is located in Fort Wainwright, Alaska. We had to get visitors passes to be able to get on base to go to the ski park.

Birch Hill has an area that you can snow tube. None of us had ever been snow tubing before so we thought we’d try it out. We had BLAST!!! I would highly recommended snow tubing! It involves ZERO skiing or snowboarding abilities. Basically you just sit on a tube it pulls you up the hill and then when you get to the top, you snow tube down the hill. It was so fun!

This is me getting pulled up the hill. (Such hard work. Lol.)

20130326-205434.jpg
I attached a link to a video of Brandon, Mom, Haylee, and me flying down the hill on the snow tubes.
We all had such a good time laughing and screaming! :)

To finish off the birthday weekend, the Whitmore-Lingerfelt’s had a birthday dinner on Sunday, March 24 (Mine & Mom’s official birth-day). Taylor and Brandon surprised us with a homemade birthday cake shaped like a cupcake and 6 cupcakes. So sweet!!

Mom was celebrating the big 50 and I was celebrating birthday 24.
They didn’t have a # 4 candle at the store so Brandon made one out of a 9. Haha.

We had such a good birthday!! It was the first time in 3 years that the Whitmore-Lingerfelt’s had celebrated together!

Here is one of my birthday presents from Mom & Dad. Too funny!! :)

Love to all!!

P.s. Say a little prayer…Brandon lost his wedding band today at work. We sure hope he can find it tomorrow!
