I Will Not Glamp, I Will Not Glamp…I Glamped.

Dear Diary,

I promise to keep this one short.

We went on our first camping trip in many years this weekend! I promised my hubby I would travel light, so he brought out this tiny little “bug out” bag he calls it.

He knows how I like options in outfit choices – it’s a girls prerogative!

I had to follow all of his guidelines though and pack light, remember I am trying to warm him up to my Next Big Thing.

The differences we deem as important became abundantly clear as we readied for this trip.

My hubby is a foodie. I made sure I satisfied a foodie’s dream requirements with my camping menu…

Homemade sliced Ham and Roast Beef with cheddar cheese on French Rolls for lunches.

Egg, Sausage, and Cheddar Cheese Breakfast Burritos.

Spaghetti w/Meat Sauce complete with Toasted Garlic Bread.

Kielbasa Sausage with homemade Mac and Cheese.

Cheesy Potato Fries as a late night snack.

Pumpkin and Spice pancakes with real maple syrup from Canada.

And last but not least…roasted marshmallows with chocolate chip oreo cookies for what I like to call SMOREOS.

While I felt pretty ridiculous with three outfits for three days, I will say we had a fabulous time with our decked out camp, complete with stereo, table, chairs, 5 person (for 2 people) tent, and a boat to get us there. Yes, that’s 2 ice chests.

Who could want for more?


We almost had a Ricky and Lucy Camp Lake Mohave, with the 30 mph winds and an 18 foot boat, but we made it.

The coyotes loved the leftovers, although they had a tummy ache after raiding our trash bags while we slept I’m sure.  At least they weren’t bears.

Who needs options when you camp with MacGyver?

I thought I was humoring him, but he was really humoring me.

You got to love him.

Until next time.
