Tomorrow we leave for Banff, in Canada, and we will be spending five days there. My husband has been there before on business and he promised me that I would be going with him on his next visit. I have been looking forward to this trip for some time, the motel we will be staying in is amazing and I can't wait to see it in person. And the scenery.......
The Banff Springs Hotel is a luxury hotel that was built during the 19th century as one of Canada's grand railway hotels, being constructed inScottish Baronial style and located inBanff National Park, Alberta, Canada. It looks like a castle nestled in the Canadian Rockies with a breathtaking view.
When we get home we will have a couple of days rest, get ready for Thanksgiving and then prepare for another trip we have planned.
So, I have been busy gathering warm clothes to take on both trips. I raided Marshall's at the beginning of the season and bought several tunic sweaters to wear with leggings. Gloves, scarves etc. it's going to be -0 in Banff. Since both will be cold and/or rainy. I've also been researching and hunting for water-resistant/warm/comfortable/stylish boots for lots and lots of walking! That will be the most important thing....warm dry feet, no matter the cost. I think I've found them.
Uggs, there isn't a warmer boot......anywhere. These are sturdy, have rubber soles to avoid slipping and these sheepskin boots are completely fur lined:)
I also needed a warm, water-resistant coat for our second trip. And I wanted a long maxi, to help keep my legs warm and dry. Everything that I was seeing online was so expensive so I decided to hit the thrift store. Voila' I found THE perfect maxi, water-proof, hooded Trench coat and it was 50% off yellow ticket day so I got my coat for 5 smackaroos!! Yup, $5.00 and what were my chances of finding it in a PETITE?!? It was meant to be:)
My little boots cost a chunk of change but I figured I saved about $145.00 on this coat!! Win win!
So, I am hoping I will be posting via wherever we are at, at any given time. I have to find out if my iPhone or iPad will work outside the US. I hope so, I would love to share all of this with you.
