Bonafide city girl right here.
At 31, I have to tell you…I’ve never gone camping…ever.
Never slept under the stars, jumped in a lake, hiked in the woods, or cooked a meal over a campfire. Until recently, I had my first ever s’more! And considering that I’m the biggest chocoholic, this is ridiculous right?!
Growing up, my dad was in the navy and he was away a lot. My mom worked all the time, and she was an indoor girl herself…and “roughing it” was not what my mother would call a vacation.
Tonight we’re driving up with 3 other families and I’ll be able to officially call myself a nature girl =)
We’ve been getting ready this past week with all our supplies, food and toiletries for the trip. I never realized how much you need for camping…it’s like packing a whole house – cooking supplies, tent, linens, etc…
And last week, the hubbs gave me a lecture about not packing too much…telling me that I couldn’t bring our large beat up suitcase…
Hahaha, he knows me all too well!!
I was able to fit the girls’ clothes and my clothes in one duffle, so that’s a big accomplishment right? But no blowdryer, curling iron or coffeemaker?…oh this will be fun!
As much as I’m a “city girl,” I’m actually really excited to go on this trip. To unplug, and enjoy “life.” Looking forward for time to slow, and to actually be able to clear my head…to star gaze and eat some S’MORES!
Not really looking forward to the bathroom facilities though, especially with the girls…it will be interesting for sure! And, no makeup right?! haha, grrreat!
I’ll take a ton of pics and be back Monday morning with stories to tell! Wish me luck that I don’t run into a bear, or worse….I actually end up putting my makeup on and driving to the nearest hotel for a blowdryer & wif-fi!
Cheers to camping!
*While I’m away, enjoy a yummy S’mores recipe on the blog tomorrow!
