Christian and I recently went on our first hike together in Laguna Beach. I always thought I would enjoy hiking, and I was excited to experience my first hike in the mountains with the husband. While walking, we took a peek at the campgrounds. Christian claims himself as the “outdoorsman” and loves to be outside whenever possible. I’ve usually resisted activities such as camping, using the Southern humidity and mosquitos as my excuse.
My excuses have all been used up and since Christian somehow managed to store the air mattress, cooler and camping tent in our 850-square foot apartment…I have agreed to go camping with him. The Real Housewives of Orange County went “glamping” (glamorous camping) last season…so maybe I can tell myself I’m glamping rather than roasting weenies over a candle, since our grill remains in Mississippi.
Any of you girly-girls like to go camping? My only kind of camping is something like this:
My sister and I watched this movie so many times I think I have the entire thing memorized. I now have a copy of it on dvd…which I’m sure I’ll bring on our “camping trip.” Love the tailoring scene, dancing scene (“do the Freddy”) and of course cookie time.
Below are some photos of our day hiking and walking around Laguna. Any of you have some camping survival tips? Do share!! Thanks for reading – XO –
