A few weekends ago we had a huge cousins-and-significant-others Tahoe trip where we rented a vacation home and the 15 of us spent the weekend enjoying ourselves. Unfortunately it rained all weekend so the little ones didn't get to go snowboarding but the adults did have a good time over Monopoly, craps, other board games, and good home cooking. Monopoly is such a classic game; ever since I was a kid I remember playing some version of monopoly and it was always, always, very competitive no matter who I play with. It was no different that weekend - things got real heated and there was lots of yelling, deceiving, and bankrupting, but despite all that we still had a good time.
Since I was anticipating snow in Tahoe I prepped these boots for the weather condition and sprayed them with two coats of rain and stain repellent the night before. It was my first time using the repellent and I didn't feel that I needed to do a test run because I've used the the leather care lotion on my purses for over a decade and have nothing but high praises about the brand. However as we were running through puddles on Saturday and Sunday and rain spots showed up on the suede I couldn't help but worry that it would be damaging. I worried for nothing though because in 24 hours the spots were gone and it was as if the boots never went through rain! Now I might go a little spray crazy and make sure all my shoes and accessories are rain repellent, haha.
