Ashley from Sloanbook

I'm doing a guest post today. This is Ashley! She is one of favorite bloggers out there and this post is going to show why! I LOVED reading this post and some of the pictures had me cracking up! Haha The Berlin Wall...! You'll see what I'm talking about :)

Hello there! 
I am excited to be guest posting for Denise today! 
She is the sweetest, cutest, and I love her blog!
I was actually really close to meeting her...a couple of weeks ago at a Blogger Meet-up but wasn't able to...so I was/am bummed. Maybe someday? I hope so! :)
Anyways, if you are wondering who I am, I'm Ashley from Sloanbook!
I blog about my husband and I and our adventures in Colorado.
We just barely moved to Colorado this summer after both graduating from BYU in April!
Oh, and we have a sassy long-haired chihuahua named Katinka! Here she is!
Moving on. Denise asked me to blog about a favorite vacation! Well I love all vacations we have gone on so I can't say one is a favorite...but I will tell you a little about a Scandinavian cruise we went on last summer! We vacationed on one of the ships of Celebrity Cruises to Holland, Denmark, Estonia, Russia, Finland, Sweden, and Germany!
I will tell you about some of my favorite parts of the trip, of course accompanied by pictures :)
1) Dressing up for 3 course dinners followed by various shows. I wish we could get dressed up and go to shows everyday! How fun is that? Comedians, dancers, singers, musicians, aerialists, etc...
2) Playing a fun archery game in Tallinn, Estonia! I made it to the semi-finals and then Kevin won and got his score on the 'high score board' of course with his name and country! USA baby!
3) Wandering the streets in Amsterdam, Holland! It is such a pretty city! But beware of bicyclists! Some of them just fly down the streets and if you don't watch out you can get hit! My brothers kept having to be saved by my dad.
Also we went to the ANNE FRANK ANNEX here - where Anne Frank really hid! That was a neat experience!
4) Hot sweaty train rides from Warnemunde to Berlin, Germany...ok that wasn't so awesome. But the food is! I LOVE GERMANY and their food! Who is a fan of German chocolate?
5) Trying to climb the Berlin Wall. Enough said ha.
6) Pretending to do Russian Folk Dance outside of the "Spilled Blood" church in Saint Petersburg, Russia! SO GORGEOUS!
And...cute monkeys outside of the church...I wanted to play with them!
I loved this trip because of the people I was with and the fun places we went to!
 Anyways, I'd love for you to stop by my blog here and say hi if you'd like! :)
If you are interested in other trips we have been on click here! Thanks Denise!

What is your favorite vacation and why?


  1. Ashley, these are awesome pictures! I'm so so jealous of your travel experiences. Maybe someday :)

  2. Well that is just too cute- I love Ashley's blog and I'm glad you had her guest post! They seriously look like a celebrity couple. He's got that whole Prince William thing going on and she totally is rocking the Natalie Portman look- too much cuteness for one post. I would love to travel to another country, but for the most part I'll probably be sticking to the homeland. Great post!

  3. Looks like a great trip Ashley!

  4. So cute! Love this guest post!

  5. Thanks Denise for having me :) You are so awesome and I will put up the link in my post now! Sorry it is late! Have a good day hun! xoxo

  6. Love her too! Wonderful post! Denise, I gave you an award today on my blog~

  7. Wow, what an amazing trip Ash!! I definitely want to go here someday!

    Enjoy your baseball Denise :) We stopped watching when the Red Sox played their last pitiful game.. haha!


Thanks for making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!! :)
