I don’t know, but I’ll-Ask-Ah!

Hahah Play on words….I know I’m a nerd.  My mom and I used to joke about this ALL the time – I’d ask a question and if she didn’t know the answer, she’d say “I don’t know, but I’ll-Ask-Ah (Al-Ask-A)…. It’s even funnier to us now because, WE REALLY ARE GOING TO ALASKA!!!!

My dad has always wanted to take an Alaskan cruise and this year for vacation, we couldn’t figure out where to go, or what to do, so this is it!  We’re going to Alaska in just a few short days!


See that girl in the boat?  That will be me!  Ok…errr…maybe not quite.  Our boat will be a MUCH larger one and hopefully not that close to the water.

I blogged about our Alaskan Cruise plans back in June when we booked the cruise and I can’t believe it’s getting closer and closer!

I debated and debated on what shoes and clothing items to wear in Alaska – seriously, from a southerners point of view, if there’s no humidity, it’s cold outside!  I don’t want to look like a silly Eskimo tourist, so I’m taking the advice of multiple friends and I’m just going to layer a little! 

I also discovered these awesome new Sperry shoes!!!


Jason let me buy them as an early birthday gift!  Happy Early Birthday to me, once again!  Can’t wear them until the first day of our cruise, though! :0)  I already currently own the Sperry Bluefish shoes, but back in 2010 for the WDW Half Marathon weekend, we walked through a lot of water and got rained on a LOT, and my jeans dripped blue dye on the tops of the shoes! They now look very old and these Anglefish shoes just look so….well….new!  So there you go! :0)


Also, I decided I’m not going to carry my Baggallini – I wanted something much smaller since I won’t have a lot to lug around in port! I browsed a lot of Vera Bradley bags and finally came across this one!  It’s a cross body and fits right on my hip! Isn’t it cute? :0)  


And last but not least, I wanted a new little black dress (the beads are falling off of my old one). When I saw this at Banana Republic, I just knew I had to have it!  I wore it this past weekend to the ACS Gala!  LOVE it!!!! :0)  I’m bringing along two dresses – one for our Les Miserables night and another for Formal Night onboard the ship!


To top off my dress, I have an awesome running buddy named Heather who is in love with shoes!  She let me borrow her heels to complete the look!   I am in love with these shoes. I think I’m going to have to find a pair for myself. Either that or she just won’t get her shoes back.

Kidding! :0)

Of course I’m bringing my running gear so I can get a few runs in on the boat. I’m going to try a run on the promenade deck and probably a few in the fitness center. We’ll see how it goes!

The suitcases are out and before I know it, it will be time to leave! I’m just so ready for a vacation get-away, it’s unreal!

Any advice or tips from those who have been on an Alaskan cruise?


  1. I am so jealous! Ya'll are going to have a blast! I know so many people who have gone and just said it is so beautiful there! I can't wait to see pictures whenever you get back!

  2. You're going to have a blast!!! My family has been on dozens of cruises, but Alaska was definitely one of the prettiest. My best advice is to pack Bonine, or whatever you do for motion sickness. Like I said I've been on lots of cruises and NEVER got motion sickness, but in alaska, the rocking of the ship was intense. You literally hit mini icebergs when you're at sea (doesnt harm the boat at all but adds plenty of motion), so even if you don't normally get sea-sick, bring stuff in case. Also, be prepared for the sun to set really late and rise early so, if you're an early bird and can't sleep with the light out, bring a sleep mask. It's so gorgeous there! Take bunches of pics for me!

  3. I've never been on an Alaskan cruise, but they are supposed to be beautiful! Enjoy!

  4. Make sure you have a light windbreaker for being out on the deck of the ship. It is always cool and moist on the water.

    Have a ball. Love your boat shoes.

  5. Alaska will be amazing! And I love those sperry's too!

  6. You trip sounds awesome! I have recently been into the idea of an Alaskan cruise, so I can't wait to hear your thoughts. Also, I love that dress! And I have those shoes - they are my favorite -- so fun and classy!

    Have a wonderful time!

  7. cute purse, shoes and dress!!!! have fun! it will be absolutely gorgeous! can't wait to see pictures!!
