5 Crock Pot Recipes for Your Campsite this Fall

Friday, September 29, 2017

Our crock pot was a wedding gift almost 20 years ago!

A slow cooker is handy for busy weeknight meals at home, but why not take your crock pot on the road for your next camping adventure?  Cooler weather always makes me want to take my crock pot out for a hearty warm meal.  You can turn on a slow cooker and forget it while you take a long hike or a day trip for a local excursion.  Slow cooker meals are the ultimate in comfort food.  Here are 5 of my favorite crockpot meal ideas for your family.

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

This fall bunting was made for my son's birthday party with a pumpkin theme.

I recently learned a new decorating technique that may have changed my life!  Did you know that you can use your home printer to print onto a piece of burlap for decorating?  Me either until a few weeks ago.  It is amazing.  And, this technique can be used to create so many fun decorations.  If you are looking for something to glamp up your campsite this fall, make a simple burlap banner!

Lacy Fitts is an amazing wife, mother, and educator.  She loves science and nature and is sharing her passion for the outdoors about foraging for food in a guest post this week!

When I was little at my grandmother's house, I spent hours with my cousin gathering wild food and pretending we were orphans.  We made stockpiles of pecans, pears and wild blackberries so that we could survive hard times.  Although thankfully we've never truly needed to gather our own food in the wild, it's a useful skill and a fun family activity.  

The Price is Right - 5 Tips Purchasing Your First Pop Up Camper

Saturday, September 2, 2017

Peggy Sue needs a good wash and is about to get a fresh coat of paint.
When we bought our pop up camper last December, we went to look at it armed with a checklist from the Pop Up Princess.  I had done lots of research.  I felt prepared and ready to make a great decision.  Several months later, I still feel like we got a great camper.  However, we have encountered quite a few issues along the way.  The main reason I stress doing your homework is how costly mistakes can be.  And, knowing what repairs will cost will help you to budget and plan for them.
