Who Visits Alaska This Time of Year?

Who in their right mind goes to Alaska this time of year? Well, according to my experience of waiting in the Seattle Airport apparently a lot of people go to Alaska this time of year. What was my motivation to go to that dark, dreary, cold far away land? My dearest friend from childhood finally tied the knot! That meant I had to go to Alaska and attend her wedding. It just wouldn't have been the same without me!
Bev got married! She married Michael Peters on January 8, 2011 in the Anchorage Alaska Temple for all ETERNITY YO! It was a small little gathering, but overpowered with love and her family - my dear friends! I wish that I would've taken more pictures, but I was asked to be the (amateur) photographer and had Bev's big o'l camera that I was busy using; so I hardly got any photo's on mine. Yikes!!!
The Happy Couple: Michael and Beverli Peters
Bev, Tara, and Me!
Beverli - the Beautiful Bride, and Me - a deer caught in the headlights.

During my quick little jaunt to Alaska I had one request - COULD WE PLEASE GO EAT AT Glacier Brewhouse? Bev made reservations, and sure enough my wish was granted. Friday night, the night before the wedding, me, Bev, her fiance Michael, and our friend Tara went and devoured one tasty dinner. I went all out - started out with a fresh brewed cream soda, dinner was fresh scallops and shrimp on rice, and of course finished off the meal with the one and only PEANUT BUTTER PIE! Oh my gosh, their peanut butter pie is H-E-A-V-E-N-L-Y! You should know how much I love their peanut butter pie cause I found the recipe and have made my own since first encountering theirs. But, there is just something about sitting at Glacier Brewhouse and taking my time devouring and enjoying each creamy, chocolaty, party in my mouth, peanut buttery bite! Gosh, that pie is divine. FREAKING DIVINE I TELL YOU!
Drinking lot's! Of...Freshly Brewed Cream Soda - best I've had West of the Mississippi!
Beginning my hour long session of devouring peanut butter pie!
All done! Waiter, Can I get one to go...I should have gotten one to go, why wasn't I thinking???
My second request was to see my sweet little friend Rekann! Rekann and I met on my second summer working in Alaska for Princess (both our first summer with Princess). Although far apart in age and other ideas we clicked immediately and have become great friends. She was kind enough to come get me one of the days there and we went to another favorite Alaskan restaurant of mine, Snow City Cafe. Such a cute little cafe with very fresh, organic food. I of course had the snow crab, avocado, and onion omelet with a tall glass of hot chocolate. Once again I stepped into heaven! It was so fun to see Rekann and catch up over a yummy meal!
My trip to Alaska, however very cold, dark, and way to quick was the best trip I have been on this whole year. Granted it's only a few weeks into the new year, but I am SOOOOOOOOO glad I got to make the trip and attend Michael and Bev's wedding.

Sounds like a fun trip even though it was so short. I'm also glad you survived Alaska in the winter. Wow!
