The title of this post is basically how I spent my weekend. I drove for hours and camped for one night, but it was completely worth the effort. First, let’s back up a little because I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve provided you with a proper update on my life 🙂 On Thursday night, my cousin Oksana and I got together to write up some guest posts! Last month, Oksana gave me a makeover. It was exciting to finally read about how she did my makeup in a guest post on my very own blog. I wrote a post for Oksana’s blog, Othingsbeauty, about how I motivate myself to exercise. It was so much fun to stray from my regular blogging routine! Guest posting is pretty cool.
Families that blog together, stay together.
Another cool thing that happened was that I won a giveaway for Skoop from Sweet Miles! Skoop is a plant-based powder that can be mixed with water, milk, or really anything else. Skoop is full of superfoods, which can be hard for self-proclaimed lazy people (like me) to fit into their diets. SO COOL. I can’t believe I actually won something 😀
I also won a blender bottle, which is exciting because I’ve never owned one until now!!
To balance out all the superfoods I ingested on Friday morning, I got a free Slurpee around lunchtime because it was 7/11 😉 My favorite flavor is a mix of blue raspberry and cherry!
A group of friends were all going camping in Wisconsin from Friday through Sunday. I waffled over whether I would go or not for weeks because I had to work a half day on Saturday. Being the social butterfly that I am, I wound up packing my bags on Friday night so they would be ready to go by the time I finished work on Saturday. I made it through the 3+ hour drive and arrived to the campsite before dark. Winner!
I missed swimming and other fun activities on Saturday, but I also missed a downpour! Well, I was driving to the campsite during the downpour, BUT I didn’t have to be outside during it 😉
I cooked my creepy vegetarian hotdogs (haha) and s’mores over the fire while hanging out with old and new friends. Sleeping outside is more relaxing than I remembered, but actual bathrooms would have been nice, lol! We didn’t even have an outhouse at our campsite. I guess that’s the way camping should be, right? 😉 The long drive and lack of cell reception made for a peaceful time. I really needed to unplug. Sadly, this means that I didn’t take my next photo until a stop at Target on my way home. Andy and I needed some frozen pizzas after only eating PB&Js and hotdogs for so many hours in a row. We are the picture of health. Thank goodness I have Skoop now, haha.
My happy place. Except this is my least favorite Target because they don’t sell alcohol.
I feel rejuvenated after that short camping trip and ready to take on the week!
