I can’t believe we are at the point where we are physically writing this down for everyone to see!!! We have dreamed about this for so long! We never thought we would be thinking about making this happen and yet, here we are- looking and planning, running numbers over and over, and going out there to figure out how to make it happen!! OK,OK…so here it goes….. we are putting it out there into the world, into the universe, and hoping we don’t sound like we have gone off our rockers!!…

You guys! It dawned on me that our family has now been using Instacart and getting our groceries delivered at our home for a full year!…and let me tell you, I don’t think we will ever NOT use an online grocery service from here on out. I think I even have the hubs hooked! We are both obsessed with using Instacart not only for the hassle and time savings, but we found that we actually started saving money. Yes, you read that right! We started S.A.V.I.N.G. money! Instacart for us means more homemade meals, less food waste, more money in our pockets and more time spent on stuff we need or want to be doing each week like RVing and spending time with family.

There is not much to say about Kerr Lake. Only one word comes to mind and it’s….. AH .MAY. ZING!  This is just about the only word that describes our experience on this lake in North Carolina so far. This trip was the 4th campground we have stayed at on Kerr Lake out of 6…and it definitely did not disappoint! I think we actually decided J.C. Cooper Campground at Kerr Lake is on the top of the list when it comes to campsites we love! Give us 3 things- clean sites, lake side, and awesome camping weather- and we call that one perfect weekend!

Now that we have been in our camper for a few months, we have gotten to the point where we wanted to make it functional, cozy, and well organized. We were so tired of the paper towel rolls being shoved into and out of the cabinet. They were taking up space inside the cabinet during travel. They were also hanging out on our small dining table and had an tendency to be knocked off and roll everywhere. Super annoying… It was time they needed a permanent home! Preferably without drilling since we wanted to place them right under our cabinets. So, we came up with this super quick and easy, absolutely no drill DIY paper towel holder!

We have had our camper for a few months now. Up until this point, we were really just trying to get our bearings with it. You know…learning the RV beginner stuff. But, as soon as I saw that post, I was immediately itching to run to the store for some décor! In 2.5 months, we will be living in our RV for about a month traveling the southeast U.S. It only makes sense to start making it homey! My daughter and I went out home décor shopping that weekend and got a few things. It was only like 6 items that we got, but they immediately made our camper warm and cozy. Well, here we give you 5 things you can do today to add some warm and cozy to your camper!

Speaking of all the things…meal planning is one of those things that I do each week for our family. I know, I know…just add it to the list! But, I wanted to share with you how I keep myself sane when it comes to family meal planning that makes our meals simple and easy during the week. I have started using this system of meal planning and prepping for our weekend RV trips which has been a lifesaver for our small fridge. It also allows us to relax while we are at our campsite and not think about what our next meal is going to be
