Wow, three posts in one day!

Coffee with girls: excellent!

C & I then hit the open road. Destination: Banff, baby. Parked and walked up three VERY steep flights of stairs to the Rose and Crown's upstairs patio. I indulged in a pint of Strongbow and the bacon cheeseburger with fries. Mmmm...salt, malt vinegar and a deep fried potato. Who could ask for more? We beat the crowd and really, the burger rivaled mine in terms of fabulous-ness. It was THAT good!

Walked around downtown and down by the river. We also discovered the most lovely garden (which I'm counting on C posting pictures of 'cause I didn't take a camera). Then the gaggles of tourists and annoying poplar fuzz started to get on our nerves so we headed to Canmore.

Wandered down main street, poking our heads in and out of shops. I made a small purchase at the Rocky Mountain Soap Company (I'll do a product review later). We both just said "NO" to the candy shops and the yummy Canmore chocolate bars. Instead we opted for a diet coke. It's true: I wasn't really hungry for the ice cream, I was thirsty! Funny what happens when you listen to your body!

Came home, made a poster pointing the way to the family picnic tomorrow and now just heating up the last of the fajitas for me and S.

Hope you all had as great a day as I did!

I have been craving beef like crazy for months, and both times I've broken down and ordered a burger - they have been pre-made or previously frozen type burgers. I'm so jealous!!
