GOIN GLAMPING WITH THE GIRLS

Photo credit: electic gipsyland

Our "glamping" weekend won't look quite like this, but we are certainly going to try. There will be four of us doing a Ready, Set, Pitch a Tent at a campground. This glamper will be bringing a plush folding bed to sleep on with a goose down sleeping bag. I'm a big girl, and I can do this. I've camped with my husband when we were hiking in the wilderness, and I am still alive to tell you I enjoy the memories.

So this week will be spent packing up my entire house to bring glamping. The lace doily on which to rest my cup and saucer will be packed. Perhaps the lace tablecloth that I never use will come along to use on the picnic table.

Preparation is paramount for glamping. I'd love to know if you are a camper. I only do this once every two years and we must make this fun ;o) I am joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.

Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Well, I like the sound of glamping more than camping.....but my idea of being outdoorsy is getting drunk on a patio (got that one from Pinterest!). I would have major issues with outdoor plumbing, I would definitely need a camper with a toilet!!! xo

  3. Sounds like fun, and I trust you will spotlight the trip in a future post. ;-)
    I admit I'm not a camper. I've done my share, but I much prefer my hot shower and cozy bed.
    Have a great time with the girls............Sarah

    1. Sarah, I also prefer a hot shower and a cozy bed. I guess we camp to challenge ourselves :-) It will be fun. Thanks

  4. I really don't like to camp but I'm fascinated by the idea of glam camping. I like to try it even if it is in my own backyard. I've been on the hunt of the perfect tent but so far no luck, any suggestions? I started following you just so I can see your pictures form your trip. Hope you will stop by and follow too. One of my Pinterest boards is Chic Camping you might want to take a peak for inspiration before you go. Have fun, Laura

    1. I really don't like to camp either, but if you do camp, make sure your tent is waterproofed. I set my tent up in the backyard, and seal ALL the seams very well. It takes a while, but it is worth it. I have climbed the 46 high peaks in New York, and spent many nights in a tent in order to do so. I've never had a wet sleeping bag! I also use a tarp under my tent to keep the bottom of my tent dry. I will take a look at your Pinterest board on Chic Camping. Thanks!

  5. I can't wait to hear all about your glamping trip, Debbie. Camping is a lot of work in the prep and packing, that's for sure. However, some of our best memories were our camping trips in Ohio at Mohican State Park.

    1. Kitty, I am bringing Johnny Marzetti too! The packing and unpacking is not my favorite thing, but I'll do anything for my girls!

  7. Have fun and tell us all about it when you return! I have no tips to share -- my idea of roughing it is having to share a hotel room with the children.

    1. Tricia, sharing a hotel room with the children is right up there with camping :-)

  8. That sounds like a lot of fun. Not a fan of camping, but maybe glamping.

    1. Carol, even glamping is a challenge for me. I won't sleep at all, but I'm a real trooper.

  9. I am not a camper, nor a glamper, but when we hiked up Wakely a few years ago, and slept in tents in the middle of nowhere, I brought regal crowns for the girls and light-up swords for the guys - oh, and plenty of lysol for the outhouse, oh and most importantly, plenty of booze. You are not bringing your checked enamelware??

    1. Patti, truth be told, I am not a camper or glamper either. I love my bed! Oh YES I am bringing the courtly check enamelware. Enamelware is for camping right?

  10. I have to admit I've never camped in my life...although I adore nature and the great outdoors...it's just something that I've never felt the urge to do.
    I like my comforts! ;D
    But now there's this whole new glamping thing...I could be tempted in the right setting as long as I could take everything with me. That would test me packing skills for sure!
    Adore that photo :D
