Camping!



This weekend my man and I are heading over to Vancouver Island to go camping with my folks at Great Central Lake. The weather is not looking great but I have  my fingers crossed for sunshine! All I want to do is jump off the dock into the water at least once. On top of that things I am looking forward to for this weekend are:

-campfires! (mostly for roasting marshmallows)
-wakeboarding, I have been wakingboarding for a few years now and I quite enjoy it.
-riding bikes. My man is a super mountain biker, I plan to try to keep up.
-seeing my mom, we laugh a lot together.
-being away. I love my city and I love hustle and bustle but everyone needs some quiet sometimes.

Usually when I travel I am a terrible over packer but this time I have packed the smallest amount of items possible. I am after all going camping.

-one pair of shorts
-one pair of jeans
-2 tanks
-2 tees
-a long sleeve tee
-a sweater
-3 bathing suits
-a pair of flipflops
-pjs
-undies/bra

All tossed into the beautiful bag my man got me for my birthday. I think the reason I normally over pack is because I never know what I am going to want to wear or what we plan on doing. Camping takes out all the thoughts of  "Maybe I need a pair of heels?" or "Do I need a fancy going out dress?". No one at a campsite thinks "She wore that same sweater last night." You're too busy eating snacks, playing game, drinks beers, and laughing. So here's to a weekend of non fashion, every fashionista needs one!

Agreed!! Camping is definitely about packing light (you can over do it on the bathing suits because they just fit in the cracks!) Have fun :)
