After a stressful work week, I decided at the last minute to take my Friday off to give me a longer May long weekend just to unwind. We decided to drive down to Canmore with some of his cousins and escape the city for the weekend! It’s always a refreshing feeling to get a change of scenery, especially with the beautiful Canadian Rockies as your background, even for a little bit.
We ended up driving to Calgary on Saturday, stayed the night downtown at a really crappy hotel – Sandman City Centre – and drove back to Edmonton on Sunday. I was finally able to check out Nordstrom inside Calgary’s Chinook Centre – yeeeeeeeeup, not my kind of shopping unless I actually had money to blow. Did a bit of shopping at the outlets and found a cute pair of espadrille-esque flats from Madden Girl to finally replace my broken down Vans slip-ons. I’m wearing them right now and absolutely adore them!
It’s now Tuesday .. Time to survive (and hopefully thrive!) for another 4 days, lol.
