On the fourth of July, I went camping. It wasn’t the plan, we were just going to go to the lake, but they gave us a campsite, so we swam in the lake all day and slept under the stars and much to the surprise of anyone who knows me well, I loved it!!
I never thought I would like camping! I went once before, and there were NO BATHROOMS and no toilet paper!! I’m not accustomed to peeing outside, so I accidentally peed right into my pants! I guess I didn’t lean back far enough. I had to go back to where everyone was with pee on my pants and all over my feet! There was no way I was going to try to poop in the woods!! Needless to say, it was not my favorite weekend.
This time it was different. We had only planned to go to the lake for the day, so we didn’t pack for overnight. They gave us a campsite though, it had a grill and there were bathrooms with running water ( I could even wash my hands) We were having such a good time, we decided to stay the night. With no toothbrush, change of clothes or hair products I agreed. I usually won’t go anywhere overnight without my toothbrush and night cream, serum, eye cream and a change of clothes. Luckily, my guy thought my frizzy after lake hair was adorable!
We went to the store and bought steaks to grill but forgot silverware so we ate the steak with our hands like cavemen!! I cut pizza with a fork, so this was way out of character for me!! It wasn’t so bad though, it was funny. We could not stop laughing at each other. Then we watched the sunset and fell asleep under the stars. It’s one of the best memories I have so far.
I’ve been trying all kinds of new things lately, and so far I’ve found that I like all kinds of things I never thought I would. I have tried to ride a mechanical bull, tried and failed to country line dance, tried oysters and alligator (not together cuz that would be gross!) learned to drive a 4 wheeler and pet a cow!!
Who knows what’s next, but it won’t be dull!
