Campground Meals Just Got Easier with Curbside Pick Up

Monday, January 28, 2019

Walmart Grocery Pick Up is free to customers and readily available at many locations nationwide.
On a recent trip to Indiana, we rented a large Air BnB for all of my husbands family to stay together.  We were anticipating a lot of snow, and it would be hard to get large groups in and out of restaurants in a small, rural town with limited choices.  Dining in was the best option.  On our way, I created a Kroger Clicklist order that I was able to pick up when we arrived.  This trip got me thinking about camping.

3 Tips for Unpacking From Your Camping Adventure

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Don't overlook plans for a successful return home after camping.

You've seen the signs, "I'm sorry for what I've said when setting up."  You may have even said it.  I feel certain my husband and I both have.  We seem to have improved our set up game.  When that trip is over, now what?  How do you tackle getting everything unpacked, cleaned up and back to normal?  You may think that planning for your camping trip is the main part of the work.  Planning for the return home is just as important as planning for your trip.

Pop Up Camper Modifications That We Love the Most

Peggy Sue looks better than she ever has.

Pop up campers are an economical way to get into the RV lifestyle.  Some of us fall in love and can't ever seem to breakup.  I'm finding myself in that category right now.  We updated our pop up camper in ways that functionality and aesthetics would be improved.  The return on my sweat equity investment paid big dividends.  Here is my favorite pop up camper modifications that we did.

Camping the Right Way? Don't Let Other's Spoil Your Fun

Friday, January 18, 2019

Where are you chasing your dreams this year?

The minute you buy a camper or camping gear, you may find a line of people waiting to tell you what you need to be doing or buying.  Just remember...there is no right or wrong way to camp.  There is gear that you need based on what you like to do and the seasons.  You need to be safe.  But, outside of safety, food, and shelter, you do you!

Make a Backsplash for Your Pop Up Camper - Spruce Up for Spring

Monday, January 14, 2019

My completed pop-up camper backsplash.

I'm starting the new year with a series called "Spruce Up for Spring."  Each month, I'll share a different project for your camper.  Over the past 2 years, I have scoured the Internet for a good backsplash tutorial.  I came across articles showing how to dress up an existing backsplash or beautifully staged photographs with no instructions.  I couldn't find the concrete directions to build a backsplash from scratch, so I decided to figure it out on my own.

Stop Letting Your Mobile Device Control You in 3 Easy Steps

Friday, January 11, 2019

Putting down your mobile device is easier than you think and will give you more time to do the things you love.

I've read several articles lately with tips on increased productivity and fewer distractions with mobile devices.  Its the yin and yang of owning a smartphone.  Many of us need our phones for work and daily tasks, but we could all stand to use our phones less.   How can we unplug to live in the moment more and remain productive at the same time?  Simple.  Decide if you are going to control your device or if you are going to allow it to control you.  Believe it or not, using your phone less can help you to be more productive and fulfilled in your daily life.

Collapsible Camping Gear We Love

Monday, January 7, 2019

A silicone pour over not only saves space.  It also makes a superior cup of coffee.

Collapsible camping gear can be really practical.  These products save space but are also functional.  Storage space in our pop up camper is really limited, so every piece of gear does count.  We have multiple pieces of collapsible gear.  Over time I seek out these options whenever possible because they really have become some of my favorite things!

French Seam Pillowcases - Give a Pop of Color and Style!

Friday, January 4, 2019

I took some time off work during the holidays.  Aside from getting a couple of minor things done in my camper, I completed some lingering sewing projects.  Two years ago, I was knee-deep in fabric to recover cushions and make curtains for Peggy Sue.  All of the work redoing a camper really burned me out, and I'm just now able to enjoy sewing again.  If you are looking for an easy project over the winter to jazz up your camper, pillows and pillowcases are where it is at!  Today, I'm showing you how to make pillowcases with french seams.  You will love the final result and can customize your space so easily.
