Back at the beginning of this year I wrote this post about the changes I wanted to make and areas that I wanted to improve. Some of those things have happened… and a lot have not… One of the things that I have done is really work on cutting back on my grocery budget by […]
So there are great and not so great aspects of cooking in an Airstream kitchen or cooking in any camper for that matter.
My favorite part is that I get to cook with a gas stovetop rather than the electric that I use at home. It has taken a little getting used to and adjusting but over all it is a lot more accurate and I am loving it!
The tough part is that the Airstream is so small, there are counter top and storage space challenges. I have one countertop space that is 2 feet wide by 2 and a half feet deep. That is it! If I am not cooking on the stove I can add a cutting board to the top of the stove to add a little space but it still isn’t much. I have 3 small drawers and one cabinet for kitchen items so space saving gadgets and appliances are a must!
With out going overboard on New Year resolutions I have a few things that I am committing myself to this year. It has been a crazy adventure since we got to Puerto Rico in 2012 and I have been giving myself a lot of “room” or leeway to not do things to my normal standards. For the last half of 2012, there were a lot of things happening and they all contributed to our lives being a little crazy:
Tavis changed jobs and it required 6 months of us living on the road and moving states every few months.
During that job training I was pregnant with our son, Aiden. He was born the last month of Tavis’s training and we moved states to the next training location when he was 3 days old.
Whether you have a new born and you are venturing out on your first vacation with the little one, or you have several kiddos and just want to make sure you are prepared, there are plenty of things to consider before heading into one of Disney Worlds 4 theme parks. I have been going to Disney […]
There are a lot of tips out there about how to plan a vacation and how to make your vacation great, yet most people tend to forget to plan to come home from a vacation. Since we live in Puerto Rico, and our family is all in Florida, we travel home as much as possible to […]
So the whole beach+baby thing is not exactly new to me. I jumped that great hurdle of motherhood with a less than 2 month old little guy and felt like I has conquered the world… or at least the beaches of Puerto Rico. Little did I know that the trips would get more and more […]
