RV Shopping

Image
Saturday we took a break between painting and drove to Camdenton to do one of our favorite things - look at RVs!  Seriously we could do it all day!

Clinton wanted to look at the swanky Cedar Creek RV - it was sweet!  It actually had sliding doors at the back that closed the living room area off from the rest of the RV.  This would be really nice if you have others with you - giving them privacy while they sleep.  


It had a bigger refrigerator than the new one we bought for the house!

Weekend Wedding Reception

This is the third and final post of our weekend at Bear Creek Bed and Breakfast Lodge.

This post will focus on the reception.  After the wedding, we had set up a popcorn bar on the tailgate of this old truck that is permanently parked there.  That gave guests a chance to snack while the wedding party was getting pictures taken.



































On one side of lodge is the wedding garden.  On the other side is a long reception building.  It has the look of a cabin on the outside with french doors lining surrounding it.  Inside it has a French country look.

As I shared yesterday, this past weekend hubby and I stayed at Bear Creek Bed and Breakfast Lodge outside of Branson.  We were there for our good friends' daughter's wedding.

Twenty-six years ago when we got married, most people got married in the church they attended.  It cost you nothing except for a small gift for your pastor.  You had cake and punch in the basement and that was usually it.

These days, everyone is looking for a cool destination to get hitched.  Some people go far away, like Florida or Mexico.  Others looks for wedding venues a little closer to home so more family members can attend.

The Bear Creek Bed and Breakfast Lodge is a perfect choice for a modern day wedding for anyone near southwest Missouri.  The grounds are beautiful and romantic and require very little decoration.



Romantic Cabin

This past weekend, hubby and I spent Friday night and Saturday night at Bear Creek Bed and Breakfast Lodge.  We were there for our good friends' daughter's wedding.  Bear Creek is right outside of Branson, just a few miles off of Hwy 65.  It was super easy to find, even though it was off the beaten path.  We drove through shabby chic metal gates down a gravel road with beautiful lanterns lining it and then past a couple of cabins, the beautiful shaded garden area for weddings, and the main lodge to the cute little check-in cabin.




Tessa checked us in and took us on a tour of the grounds and then met us at our cabin.

We stayed in the Tree-house cabin.  We parked a short distance away and walked the mulch path into the woods and down a steep little path to the cabin door.


I loved the private walk to the cabin!



The kitchen was on the left when you walked in.  Notice the healthy snacks of Fiddle Faddle and chips!


Down from the kitchen was the dining area with a cool antler chan…

Throwback Thursday {Memorial Weekend 2014}

One of the main reasons why I started this blog was to share one of my favorite things  - CAMPING!!

Hence the name lol!

I know it sounds crazy but I have a goal to visit and/or camp in every state park in the country!  Seriously!

Camping is usually one of those things most people either love or hate.

I hope I can inspire some of the haters that camping might not be so bad after all and I hope I can share camping tips with the lovers {insert winky face!}.

We probably won't get to do much camping this summer.  The obvious reason is our home remodeling project but also we sold our pop-up camper {we plan to buy a bigger one} and our tent supplies is at the very back of our storage unit.

So.......in the mean time........I will occasionally share some past camping trips.

Like this one we took last Memorial Day weekend.

We have had the tradition for several years to go camping at St. Joe State Park near Park Hills, MO on Memorial weekend.






















St. Joe's State Park is a park where you …
