LIVE! with Banff

There has been a lot of excitement this past week in Banff. Kelly Ripa from the show LIVE! with Kelly was in town hosting her daily talk show and showcasing the incredible Banff Lake Louise area.

When I heard that Kelly Ripa was coming to Banff, I was excited that Banff Lake Louise and Alberta would be receiving some awesome exposure through her show. I didn't try to get tickets, as I wasn't an avid watcher of her show and didn't think I needed to go.

I was at the grocery store on Sunday evening and ran into a friend who had tickets to the taping on Monday morning. She asked if I wanted to join her...I said yes and off we went to the Banff Centre early Monday morning.

I have watched LIVE! with Kelly a few times and she always made me giggle. Seeing her in person is so much better! She is exactly as she seems...sweet, funny and incredibly genuine. She was so grateful for everything that she experienced in Banff National Park and Alberta and didn't appear to take anything for granted. She was able to promote Alberta and make all Canadians look fabulous doing so :)

Peter Facinelli (or P-Fatch as Kelly calls him) was the co-host of the show that I saw. The guests were Johnny Galecki (Leonard from Big Bang Theory) and Canadian R&B singer Melanie Fiona; who had just won a Juno the night before. This photo is blurry...but it is of Kelly, "P-Fatch" and John Galecki during his interview.

I know that I am lucky to live in Banff, but watching LIVE! with Kelly this past week has made me SO much more grateful for this awesome place that I call home :)
