Girl Chat - August 2017

Wow, a month sure went fast! I feel like we were just talking about what we would do with a million dollars!

This month's installment is all about a dream vacation!

I think my true dream vacation would be to Alaska. I've always wanted to go for as long as I can remember. I have heard Alaskan cruises are awesome but I just don't know if I'm a cruise type of person (just being on a pontoon boat made me feel all wonky!)

Since I'm all about my family, I would want to be with them to explore this beautiful place. And since my sister and I use to daydream about Alaska together, I would invite her family to come along too!

My dream is to stay in a charming, quaint town.  And since I love snow, I would definitely want to be there while the streets and mountains were covered.

Girdwood is a town that seems to fit what I would be looking for - it's a suburb of Anchorage. I'm sure there are other cute towns but this is one that I've looked into before

Look how beautiful!!

The Alyeska Ski Resort looks like a beautiful place to stay and we could all get some skiing in too!

Some things I would want to do while there are:

Go on a Glacier Cruise

Visit the Roundhouse Museum

So there you have it, pretty simple yet not so much since this is Alaska we are talking about! Writing this made me all giddy in hopes that one day we really can get there!

I can't wait to see where you all would go!

We hope you link up below!

  1. My mom and dad have wanted my sisters and her hubby and us to go on an Alaskan cruise. We just can't seem to pull the trigger since you have to go in the summer and that interferes with our precious lake time! My sister lives in Seattle so we need to go while they live there since we can hop on a cruise right down the street from their place! Love this link up prompt! xoxo ERIN

  2. You make me want to go to Alaska! My grandma has been on Alaskan cruise twice, the second time my mom and aunt went with her as well. It sounds pretty darn awesome - they all really enjoyed it! I don't know if I am cruise person either, and your little town adventure sound right up my alley!

  3. Oh my gosh... sign me up for any one of these trips. I am such a fan of cooler vacations. And what I mean about cooler is temp wise. I am okay with the beach, too, but I think it's fun to do something more than just visit the beach and soak up some sun.

  4. My in-laws went on an Alaskan cruise and loved it. I can just imagine how beautiful it would be. Beautifully Candid

  5. I went on an Alaskan cruise! It was really cool.

  6. Oh my word! I would love to go on this very same vacation. How beautiful!!!

  7. This is such a fun idea for a blog post. This vacation sounds amazing!

  8. Alaska is on our list as well! That town looks amazing!

  9. One of my best friends just got back from living in Alaska for a three year stint (her hubs is military) and she LOVED it. She said that she would live there for the rest of her life if she could! The only bad thing is the shipping (or lack there-of). No Amazon Prime two-day shipping. Haha. And also lots of things there that you can't get at the grocery store because certain companies won't ship there. So strange.

  10. I went on an Alaskan cruise and it was amazing. We saw glaciers, lumberjack contests, zip lined etc. you would have a blast.

  11. YES! My bff's husband is from Alaska and they go every couple of years. It's an expensive place to get to/ visit but oh my goodness it is SO pretty.
