Happy Camper

Happy camper in layers and comfy shoes

White wine sangria  

Grilling dinner

Frying up bacon for breakfast 

Morning mimosas with red solo cups :)

Chateau St. Croix Winery & Vineyard 

Barrels of wine

Hiking time!

Timed camera picture perfectly capturing the moment :)


I'm not what you would call "outdoorsy"... I hate bugs, being dirty, and for the most part I'm good with appreciating nature from a distance.  My boyfriend loves camping.  In an effort to prove to him I'm not completely high maintenance, and prove to myself that I'm a tough chick who can handle a few nights sleeping outside... camping we went! Camping that included showers, electricity, bathrooms, and a wine tour  :)  It was a really fun weekend of slowing down, abandoning cell phones and computers, and feeling completely stress free.  So yes, I'd go camping again - as long as I can shower and blow dry my hair :)

Heather, you are an absolutely adorable camper! You look like you fit right in, in a cool, stylish way, of course. I have to tell you when my husband and I were dating we had a very similar experience. He is all about camping... Even though I grew up doing it, me, now, not so much. So, I did go camping with him and big group once. The campsite included a shower, electricity, etc. I just have to brush my teeth and wash my face!! Love that pic of you and your boyfriend.

Oh, we went camping every year when I was younger! 3 weeks in a row. We had a trailer, but I always slept in a tent with my sister :) It was a lot of fun since our campsite had an outdoor pool and the ice cream truck came by every night ^^ xo

Rebecca said...

haha...I can totally relate with you about not being a camping girl but it's not a bad idea to really try the great outdoors! YOU LOOK GOOD OUTDOORS!!!

When my husband and I were dating we had gone camping a few times. When we were registering for our wedding he added a bunch of camping gear. We got most of it as wedding gifts and then I revealed that I don't really like camping. Ooops!

I think that's called glamping, hehe. I've never gone camping, since like you, I enjoy my hygiene :) That white wine sangria looks delish!

Rebekah said...

I'm with you. After camping with my husband and his college friends for the last four years, I finally convinced them to get a cabin this year. So much better.

I'm loving all your beverage options!! Sangria and mimosas, yum!

Looks like a great time!! I could deal with this kinda camping :)

Maca said...

You guys look like you had so much fun!!! And you are on stylish camper!
I have to say, my kind of camping also includes a decent bathroom haha, I'm not one to rough it in the woods :)

Juneli said...

I'm so like you- love nature, but from a distance!! I too hate being dirty and am really scared of bugs and reptiles! Luckily, the hubby is also not too much into camping and stuff but my mother and brother are the two naturalists in our family! they can spend months outdoors and they wouldn't even know!! But camping with shower, electricity and bathroom? I'm game for it!!
Love

How do you manage to look great camping? Love the stripes! Great pictures! That is my kind of camping too! The wine tour sounds fun! Glad you had a great time!

Jenee C. said...

haha i'm not really an outdoorsy person either. When I go camping (or more like glamping), I have to have showers. But oo looks like you had a really great weekend, with yummy food (are those marshmallows I see? :)) By the way, I also like your stripe top!

Bravoe Runway said...

Wine tour? Sangria?? You call this camping?? OK I will tell you what I consider camping...a hotel that doesn't have a spa. Yes I shamelessly admit that I am high maintainence and hate camping. Wanna know why? BECAUSE IT ALWAYS RAINS! Weather prediction calls for clear skies and as soon as I arrive...RAIN.

Tesa said...

nice post!

Laura said...

Aw, this looks like such a fun trip! And I love your casual camping outfit with stripes and pumas, so comfy and still cool! :)

Amanda Irel said...

Jonesy said...

Looks like a good time! I say abandon the hair dryer and keep the showers :)
