First Camping Trip of 2013!

I'm so excited for summer!  Camping is one of my favorite things to do during the summer and we recently went out to the lake for a fun weekend camping!  We try to go to once a month during the warmer months, so that we can swim in the lake, hang out by a fire at night and enjoy the sounds of nature while we sleep.  Look at the view from our campsite!:

Sweet Summer Sausage Tin Foil Dinner

I'm at it again! I'm grilling up delicious tin foil dinners every chance I get :D  I made two different tin foil dinners this last camping trip. I wanted something to satisfy my sweet tooth, so I picked sweeter veggies to throw into the foil packets. It turned out great! Scroll to the bottom for a printable recipe card.

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Disaster

We went camping this past weekend and so before we left I went to Pinterest for some ideas for what to eat when I came across a recipe for Brown Paper Bag Eggs & Bacon. The recipe stated that I could line the bottom of a brown paper bag with bacon then crack an egg or two in there, fold the bag at the top then place it over the fire until the grease is about halfway up the bag.  My husband's instant reaction was, "won't it catch fire." 

Here's the start of our meal:

Beef and Beans Tin Foil Dinner

If you've reading any of my camping posts then you know that I LOVE grilling and eating Tin Foil dinners! The best part about making Tin Foil dinners is that you can throw just about anything in the foil packet & grill it.  This time we decided to experiment with adding beans to the mix!  It turned out amazingly delicious! There's a printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.

Potluck Picnic Party

It's summer!!!  That means that it's time for potlucks and enjoying time with your friends in the great outdoors :)  With the help of my hubby, we planned out a potluck picnic in the park with friends.

Picnic Basket Party Favors

I recently had a Potluck Picnic in the park with some friends and I wanted to make sure that everyone left with a unique favor.  I was thinking of getting little buckets, but the price on those sure adds up!  Then, it came to me one day that I could turn paper bags into little picnic baskets!  Luckily, what I imagined worked out and I ended up with some adorable favors!

May 2013 Resolution Report

It's June already! How'd we get here so quickly?!  Five months of the year is gone already and thankfully, I can look back and say that I'm still sticking to my resolutions.  The hubby and I still discuss them every Sunday night before we go to sleep and take notes on how we've done in our Google Calendar event.

Jogging Photography

You know that scene in Yes Man where Jim Carey's character meets Zooey Deschanel's character early in the morning for her photography class?  You don't? Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qhpbDI-8TE.  Well, I did it.  The hubby and I went for a job to the library and back & I took these pictures. I never slowed down for a picture & none of them were edited.
