I’m home! Gosh it feels so good to be home again after three weeks away. Living out of a suitcase for three weeks makes this organizing junkie downright Twitchy with a capital T. Our vacation included one cottage, one house, 5 different hotels and a tent, whew! That was a lot to pack for considering we didn’t come home in between any of it. I held it together though pretty good for the most part and will be sharing some of my travel tips in an upcoming post.
Here are a couple of shots of our “tenting” experience. It’s called comfort camping located in Dinosaur Provincial Park here in Alberta. The park is absolutely breathtaking and the camping really not so bad :)
The inside of the tent. There was also a pull-out futon on the left hand side which you can’t see and a table and chairs on the right hand side.
The beautiful view from the front porch:
The Badlands (in the park) where the dinosaurs roamed long long ago:
If you ever get the chance to go, I highly recommend it!
We have eaten so much junk food in the last three weeks that I’m excited to now get back into some simple dinners this week and scale back, way way back on all the not so healthy stuff. All that eating out was fun while it lasted but it definitely gets old after awhile that is for sure.
How are summer holidays going for you? Is it true some of you have kids already back to school? Where do you live? Mine don’t go back until after Labor Day here but of course they didn’t finish school until the end of June.
Finally just wanted to remind you about the Back to School Boost for Moms ebook collection sale going on for just two more days. This collection includes an ebook all about Speed Cooking Weeknight Dinners that is fantastic!
