My E LOVES Waffles.
She would eat them everyday for every meal if we would let her. 
I am always looking for new waffle recipes to try to change things up.  I just found the best waffles made from scratch over at  I made mine at home rahter than out camping but they would be great on an outing!  Try my buttermilk syrup they are perfect together!!!

How To Tie A Scarf

I don't know about you, but I love scarves.  While shopping with my friend, Jen K, she taught me the best way to tie a scarf.  I was going to do a tutorial on how to do it until I found this pic.
#5 is my favorite.

How To Remove A Grease Spot

This weekend The Mr and I were able to participate in a 24 hour cycling relay.  We had a blast.  As we were waiting for one of our riders to come in I brushed up against a bike and got a chain mark on the back of my favorite pants.
I was pretty bummed until I found out that Dawn dish soap not only
"takes grease out of your way", but it takes grease out of clothes!
I wish I had some pics but didn't think about taking one before I washed it! 
Just put a little soap on the grease spot and work it in, wash and, amazingly, it comes right out!  I am buying another bottle for my laundry closet.
Thanks, Trudy for this tip!!!

Pumpkin Cookie Recipe

Fall is my favorite time of year!  I love the chill in the air, the delish fall food, and football season.  I just hate the thought of snow in a few months.  Well, I found an easy and healthy pumpkin cookie recipe to go right along with the season.
I think it is a Weight Watchers one!
Mix a spice cake mix (just the dry ingredients) with a small can of pumpkin.  Add a handful or two of chocolate chips (I prefer white chocolate chips) and you are done.  Yep, just 3 ingredients.  Spoon them out on a cookie sheet and cook at 350 for 10-15 min.  I make mine a little bigger so I have to cook theme longer.  They are so moist.  It's hard to just eat one!  I have also made muffins from the same ingredients.  They are great for breakfast.

Lazy Days

Oh how I wish we would have found our trailer a few months ago!
(haha), and are loving it.
I found the greatest is called
It comes in two sizes, single (for one person) or double (for 2 or more - up to 350 lbs)
I ordered the double and LOVE IT.  I find myself spending a little too much time in it!
Hey isn't that what camping is all about?
It is so easy to put up (about 3 min total time) and a few more to put it away.
It fits in a small bag so it takes a little more time to shove it in the bag.
After our last outing I found out that the hammock can be washed.  It looks brand new.
