Gone Campin'

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I can't remember the last time I sat outside at a campfire.
We had a fun time with family this weekend doing a little camping for my niece's birthday party.
I took my boys while the hubs stayed home to fulfill his idea of a dream weekend.....deep house cleaning and a honey-do list. Yes, ma'am, that's my man!
 So after a long 24 hours of roughing it at the camp, I tiredly came home to new faucet fixtures, cleaned carpets, new window treatments hung on my doors, pressure-washed front door entrance, a freshly cut yard, and a new surprise fixture in my closet to help with my current shoe obsession. Oh, and he topped it off with flowers on my kitchen table too.
Yep, I got a good one. Think I'll keep him around. I'm always amazed at how fast that man can clean up a house.
Thanks, hubby! You are THE best!

My kiddos got to experience their first authentic smores by campfire, as did I.
Not bad. I kinda see what all the fuss is about now.
Speaking of campfire, I VERY quickly slapped together a little homemade-looking cake for my niece, Paris, just minutes before we left for the campground. We went with a glammed-up campfire chocolate cake, complete with a sparkly pink and gold flame.
Oh, well, it tasted really good anyway.
 Let's just say it fit into the "roughing it" weekend theme.


Some puttin' practice with the cousins.

The kids all got into a heated game of baseball and we finished out the trip with a nice little shiner for my youngest. Poor thing got socked with a baseball while at bat. It was definitely game over after that.

Busy week coming up! Lots of orders to go out, a pampered chef party to host, and all of the regular week long tasks need to get fit in there too somehow!
Have a great week, friends!
