Date Night

I firmly believe you cannot have a happy life without having a happy marriage.  Having a happy marriage takes work - sometime it takes a willingness to get off the couch and out of the house and do something different!  Hubby and I did just that the other night - we got dressed up and went to the big city of Springfield, MO - ate out and went to the Pat Benatar concert!


We tried out Big Whiskey's downtown.  It had a cool downtown vibe to it.  My chicken parmesan was very good!


We had time to kill before the concert started and I didn't want to stand around in my heels lol so we ordered dessert - fried cheesecake!  It was cheesecake wrapped up in a flour tortilla, deep fried and served with ice cream and caramel sauce.  It was delicious!


The concert was held at the Gillioz Theater.  The Gillioz is a beautiful theater built in the 20's with lots of charm.  I really enjoy going to concerts there - it is smaller and more intimate.  You feel like you're right there with the musicians.  


Even though we got dessert, we were still pretty early for the concert - we were so excited!


Pat Benatar and her husband of 33 years Neil Giraldo put on an amazing concert!  When she came out and started to sing Shadows of the Night, I thought she was lip syncing because she sounded just like her records!  Some musicians don't sound as good in person.  Not Pat!  She has one of the most powerful voices I've ever heard!


I actually teared up when she sang Love is a Battlefield!  I was 16 years old when that song came out.  You always remember those songs when you were a teenager!


Hubby and I were all smiles throughout the evening!  We had a great time and made some great memories.

What are you waiting for?!  Get out there - do something different - spend some time with your spouse.

Find your Happy Camper Life!

Selling Our RV

For several years, Clinton and I searched and searched for the perfect RV!  Shopping for RVs can be a lot of fun.  If you go in enough of them, you get a good sense of what you're looking for.  With our son in college and not able to camp with us much, we were looking for a smaller fifth wheel that had room for him in case he could go with us but didn't take up valuable living space for sleeping arrangements we didn't need very often.

We found the perfect first time RV for us!  It is was a Forest River Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite.  It was 31 feet long, so it wasn't massive but big enough to give us lots of features we didn't have in our pop-up camper.  One of my favorite features of this RV has been the kitchen.  I've heard a lot of people say they don't cook in their RV.  I do my fair share of cooking outside but with this RV, I've had the space to prep, cook, and serve from inside.  I also love the living space with the sofa, regular dining set, a…

Our First RV!!

I can't really tell you where my love for camping came from.  My family never went camping when I was growing up, neither did my husband's family.

After our son was born, Clinton and I took up camping because it was an expensive way to "go on vacation."  We bought a tent, an air mattress, a couple of coolers and we started camping.  
I guess that's actually where this deep-seated love for camping occurred.  There's nothing better than setting up camp, then sitting around a campfire - cooking, eating, and laughing.  Then you wake up, usually early and watch the sun rise.  You hear birds, crickets, and other sounds of nature.  You smell bacon and coffee wafting across the campground.  It's so peaceful and helps to clear your mind.  
We have tent camped at various state park near us in Missouri and we have also tent camped in other states, like this one trip we took around the Great Lakes.  
Last year we finally upgraded to a pop-up camper.  It was like a t…

Advice - Memphis

October 10, 2018, my hubby and I with our two little doggies are going pack up our 33 foot 5th wheel RV and hit the road for what we're calling "The Grand Adventure"!  It will be a two year trip across the United States, camping in every state!

We've had a lot of people ask us about our plans and where we're going so we've decided to start sharing our ideas so you all can give us advise before we ever leave.

Since we won't be starting "The Grand Adventure" until October, we decided to start in a state that will be beautiful in the fall - Tennessee.

The first stop on the Tennessee tour will be Memphis.

We will be camping at T. O. Fuller State Park.  It is located right outside of Memphis.  An ancient Indian village was found during an excavation. The site has since been developed as the Chucalissa Indian Village and is operated by the University of Memphis. It includes a village, preserved archaeological excavations and a modern museum.

At eac…
