we bought a travel trailer!

Jeff has been wanting to get one of these for about 2 years now. he's been online searching different types of trailers, etc. So we decided to go take a look a some just to get an idea of what some of the options are. Well, after looking at a few models and seeing one that we really liked - we ended up buying one. the price was too good to pass up. We really got a good deal. We are very excited. we are going to park this in the backyard and use it as a getaway or a place for guests to stay. it is a 30 foot trailer, with a back room that has 2 full beds, a computer desk and lots of storage. Next to the back room is the bathroom.
there is a living area with a table, a couch, stove, fridge, microwave, sink. the table turns into a bed and so does the couch. then there is a master bedroom with a queen bed, storage, 2 side tables and a spot to put a tv.
We've got it parked in the back and spent the day yesterday organizing it, putting linens on the beds, putting in the tv, putting chairs out front, pulling down the cute little canopy in the front. my husband spent the day out there watching football and enjoying his little get a way pad.


  1. Can't wait to visit the new "guest house"!! I love how cute it looks next to the arbor and to picture chairs out front under an awning is so fun!! Not to mention that you can take off for a fun trip in it!!! or host your very own art retreat!!! ARt and KeEsH! -Sandra

  4. OMG, so glad I checked your blog before I went to bed! I've missed you today but have felt so rotten that it was best that I cacoon and try to feel better.
