Finally Its Official












So, this afternoon Levi and I drove out to Alyeska which is a really nice ski resort about 30 miles south of Anchorage. It started snowing really hard about 10 miles out....by the time we got to Girdwood, the town in which Alyeska is located.....it was a winter wonderland, just like Narnia. It was BEAUTIFUL! We walked around inside the hotel and outside.....it was perfect....the snow was falling softly and it wasn't cold. Levi, found a spot in the woods that was right off the path. It was really cool!! It blocked us from the snow falling....except when the wind blew.... then it would all dump off from on top of the trees. It was really neat. Anyhow......the coolest part of it all though , was that's where Levi proposed!!!!!!! =) It was SOOOOOO perfect!!! I knew he had asked dad's permission on Sunday night so I was just waiting for it!!!! ;) The whole time I was thinking....."Well, now would be good" or "He better hurry up! We need to leave before it gets dark". He did at the right spot though and the perfect time!

We Are Home

It took long then we would have liked, but we made it. It was AMAZING that we made the DC flight. It was oversold by 5....but at first they were still able to get 1 standby on. Then the flight went on a 4 hour delay. That was our prayer answered... 4people moved to other flights which opened up seats. We got on but spent five and half hours apart separated in middle seats. We are thankful that we just got on!! It kinda went fast for me...I sat next to this crazy lady that wanted to talk. She was crazy in the sense, to not be annoying, but make me entertained.

We didn't make it out of Seattle though that same night because all the flights were just SOOO oversold. I was SOOOOO tired and worn out that we stayed for 2 flights.... I realized how impossible it was going to be that night.......and asked if we could just get rooms. So that's what we did. It was wonderful....we got up the next morning, refreshed and ready to face whatever.

The only flight that looked good, was what we in Alaska call the Milk Run. The jet is used mostly to deliver Cargo to the different villages. It goes from Seattle to Juneau, Yaketat, and Cordova Alaska then finally into Anchorage. The flight was WIDE OPEN all the way! So there were over 66 standbys wanting to get on that flight. They had weight and balance issues though....so they were only able take about half. We were blessed because we were near the top. We got to sit together, so I was able to be there when he looked out the window and saw Alaska! It was SO fun!!!


AMY!! I promise to get some pictures up!!! lol We have some now from flying, but I gotta get this day moving.... so maybe we will get some up tonight. There are going to be LOTS!!! =)

Oversold Flights

Well, Levi and I head out today. Or rather tonight.....it's a three hour drive from Roanoke to DC. So, he likes to leave REALLY early to beat the traffic. We are going to shoot for the 8a flight to Seattle.... It's REALLY full though! Oversold by 5! When I was looking last week I wasn't worried about the DCA to SEA just SEA to ANC. Seattle to Anchorage the flights are also all oversold. So, now it's going to be a little stressful in general. Levi is going to get a crash course in flying standby. I was soooooOOOO looking forward to having someone to travel with....but we may not even be able to sit together now.....!! If anything, please pray that we make the flights. I don't do well with sleeping in airports....and we don't want to spend money on hotel rooms for each of us!! My body is already messed up with the time change, I know I'll just get so worn out.

Okay...I'm wining right now....so I'm going to get off!!! =O)

IN VA AGAIN

So, I made it into DC late last night. The flights were perfect! Wide open...got good seats, a matter a fact I had a whole row to myself on the Seattle to DC flight. It was GREAT! Plus, both flights were turbulence free! Gotta love that!

I'm staying with the Anders again. I have fallen in love with them! They are SOOO sweet! Here they have family (a house full) over for their Thanksgiving and yet it was still okay that I came. What a blessing they have been! I pray that my home one day, will be just as welcoming and comfortable. I think God would want it no other way. AND I REALLY pray that God blesses the Anders!

Levi, is at work and so I slept for what seemed like FOREVER this morning. Levi got basically NO sleep last night though. We didn't get into Roanoke (more then likely spelled wrong) until after 5a, and then he had to be to work at 7a. He gets done at 4p but, my guess is, is that he'll sleep while I watch a movie or something. Poor guy.


Anyhow....I hope everyone had a GREAT THANKSGIVING!!!!
