What A Trip!

The Hubs and I are back from our trip to Oregon and what a trip it was!
I downloaded 118 photos, and went to some really fantastic places that I'm excited to share with you. It's going to take me a couple days to get it all put together for your viewing pleasure. So in the mean time.............................here a few photos


We drove the first night until The Hubs just couldn't keep his eyes open any more. We pulled over at a rest area to sleep and when we woke up..........there we were in the middle of a carnival. The Hubs decided that this occurrence really was ironic since we are a traveling freak show ourselves sometimes. We decided it was Blog Worthy and need to have pictures taken to share with you.

FULL HOOK UPS!!! That's right! Cable TV Baby!
Oregon Duck Homecoming Weekend. We were staying in the RV Park that apparently is the choice of all tailgaters going to the big game.

Even Charlie had to get in on all the excitement happening around us. He's so damn cute, it just makes me laugh. I'm openly admitting I'm in love with my little dog.
We did a little wine tour and tasting. I can see why people get hooked on the whole grape growing, wine making, wine connoisseur life style. It was relaxing and beautiful and I could have sat there all day!
One tired dog!

I visited an Antique Store and Open House that was so fantastic it moved me and left me wanting to make some changes in my life. It's not all just about decorating and junk!
I can't wait to tell you all about it.
One of the best pumpkin desserts I have ever had. I'm working on getting the recipe to share with you. This also came from a place that when walk in the door you say.........."OH MY GOD!" "I have died and gone to junk heaven!"
Another fantastic antique store that ended up being one of the best stops ever !
A scone discovery that I wish I would have bought dozens of them
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip and Marionberry. They were FANTASTIC!

I came home with some great experiences, a head and chest cold, recipes, and two piles of laundry that almost came to my waist.

So with that said..................I'm going to get crackin on the detailed story of our adventures and the laundry.

STAY TUNED.................................................................

I LOVE your bug and trailer! How fun that must be! Plus, it looks like you have planty of space to load it down. Did you ever see the Lucy movie, "The Long, Long, Trailer"? She picks a BIG rock at every stop as a momento. Sorry, I got sidetracked LOL, but loved the yellow! Karen
