Happy Friday

It is a little cloudy in San Antoino this morning, but is is supposed to be 79 today. Can’t get any better than that.

Jennifer is driving down from Austin to pick us up and take us to tour her house, and a little of Austin. We should even get to see where Chris works. Can’t wait, and only 2 days with my baby isn’t enough, but it is wonderful to get to see them.

The convention has been great – have gotten to see a lot of people that we only see at these things. It is a lot quieter since Cleve isn’t here, and feels a lot different, but it is fun listening to all the stories everyone is sharing!

Well it is time to get back to reading some of my favorite blogs.

Have a great day!

Roughing It

Right now I am roughing it a little sitting at an outside patio on the riverwalk listening to a water fall. Hubby is in a meeting and I am enjoying the sights of San Antonio. The weather is beautiful, and the scenery is amazing – ducks quacking & watering running – all the while I am working on the

Have a great day, and more soon!

Vintage Campers Obsession

I have recently admitted to my hubby that I have an obsession with vintage campers. I had a gal in the store the other day and she purchased a couple of pillows for her vintage trailer. I got so excited talking to her about camping in vintage trailers.

I am going to take my time to research, collect, and obsess over vintage trailers for a while, but in the mean time I thought I would share a few pics that I have found, and fallen in love with.

Oh, by the way, hubby rolled his eyes at me when I told him about the camping trips this gal goes on, and the vintage camper thing. What does he know?

Isn’t she adorable!

pink & silver camper  Vintage trailers like this are making a comeback. If you have the opportunity to pick up something like this for dirt cheap I would suggest getting it. Fixing up the interior is a lot of fun and quite inexpensive if you access the resources available OR you could call me and my husband and I will redo the interior and exterior for a reasonable rate.

I love the colors in this one~

Would love a pair of banquets where you could fold down the table and convert to sleeping space for guests

More later.

@ The Ranch this week

Well this past weekend was the start of the National Western Stock Show in Denver, CO. It is always a favorite of our family. Hubby is cooking lamb legs today, and tonight we will be in the back with the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) feeding them and their families dinner before their ride. This is always a good time, and John loves to talk to and see what his favorite cowboys are up to. Mark and John will be back out there on Saturday Jan 19th for the PRCA Cowboys.

The first pic is hubby cooking lamb legs, and the second is Mario helping feed the cowboys. A great time is had by all!
