the new bunny on the block

According to Facebook, it snowed in Calgary yesterday. Oh so sucky…

It is technically still summer and even though I taught my son to say “in Summer, we do NOT talk about winter”, I feel the need to start planning my new ski wardrobe. Yes, ski wardrobe. If I am going to hit the slopes, I am going to dress for it. My top requirement is warmth but I don’t want to look like a rent-a-rebel so here’s some stuff I’ve found online: Ski

Hopefully a trip to the States in the fall will land me to a pair of skis. My current pair are about twenty years old, long and straight – you know, the kind you’d see on a vintage travel poster… Anyway, I already have a jacket, ski pants and helmet but it is still fun to shop around. d13dc0547b6be2b117f51b4c554d5fa6

I think I am mostly excited about skiing because I am going through a bit of runner’s fatigue. A lot of long lonely runs have worn me out so once my races are over, I should be more positive about layering up.

How about you? Any big plans to deal with winter?

Anxiety is kicking in… we are quickly approaching August and I am starting to panic that summer is slipping away. Must stay positive.

Whenever my sister is about to come to Canada, my natural instinct is to start shopping online – Zappos, J.Crew, Boden and Madewell are my go-to’s for American shopping and right now I have booties are on my mind. I think a new pair of shoes will ease the Autumn blues. So here’s what I am eying: booties
