Oh Canada!

16 Apr

What can I say… I am a jet setter. Ha! Well, sort of…

I just got back in from a quick weekend getaway to Cooperstown, NY and Niagara Falls. What is in Cooperstown you ask? Well the baseball hall of fame of course! Needless to say Scott planned this part of the trip. But I am a sports loving type of gal so I really enjoyed going to see the where baseball was invented. I was a huge fan of the Houston Astros growing up – major Craig Biggio fan – so it was cool getting to see his shoes, hat and bat. I must admit I still have his autograph…

After Cooperstown we headed back to Syracuse for the night. On the way to grab dinner and a few drinks in downtown, we overheard a parking attendant say Daniel Tosh was playing two shows that very night down the street. My face lit up! We scored last-minute tickets and headed to the Landmark Theater. Great show – offensive, but a ton of laughs. Tosh basically stated towards the end of his set, “I am looking for those few people I haven’t offended yet, and offend you.” Abusive humor is what he does best!

Sunday we woke up early and headed straight for Canada. We walked over the Rainbow Bridge to Canada so I could get my stamp in my Passport – an absolute must. Niagara Falls was beautiful. Well the waterfall itself that is, the city of Niagara Falls was eh… We walked down one street it was seriously like pee wee’s playhouse meets a state fair. It was truly bizarre. But just a few feet away was the beautiful white misting of the horseshoe-shaped waterfalls. Really glad we took the time to check out this beautiful US/Canada landmark. Who knows if we would ever get this opportunity again.

The sock bun even made an appearance in Canada! And I even came up with a new way to wear the spring must-have denim shirt. Check it out… Simply wear the denim shirt unbuttoned over a maxi dress. Throw on a summer scarf and a pair of sunglasses and you are set. Hair is second day waves – use a little dry shampoo and smoothing cream to refresh the look of day old hair. I love when you realize you didn’t pack enough clothes but cleverly put what you have left together to create an entirely new outfit! Success!
