Bro-ing out with a sister blogger

Before I begin, can we please all take a moment to bask in the golden glory of Lisa's fresh-from-Mexico legs? Take them in, won't you? They're freakin' spectacular.

In other news, as you can see, my girl Lisa from NotLadylike was here for some quality bro time this weekend. It was her first time making a trip out to Jasper to visit me (usually I head to Edmonton because that's where the Value Villages are), so we made sure to do it up right. We went to Maligne Lake, Maligne Canyon and Mount Edith Cavell. We drank moijitos with fresh mint from my garden. We made fun of dumb tourists who didn't know what to do when they encountered wildlife. (No joke, people parked without even pulling off to the side of the road and got out of their vehicles to approach bears. Not just any bears, either—mother bears with cubs. Ah tourists. So brilliant!) We stayed up until 3:30 a.m. eating cold pizza and talking on the floor. Oh and this happened:

Yup, all in all, we had a pretty great visit. It's just too bad that it was only a couple of days. There's so much more to see and do in Jasper and I'm sure there was plenty more girl talk to be had as well. I guess that will have to wait until next time. How was your weekend? Did you have any visitors?

Just a wee reminder that there's a $50 Shabby Apple gift card up for grabs on the ol' blog.
So, don't forget to check out the not too 'shabby' giveaway and enter to win.
