I'm going to camp y'all!!! No, I'm not just a little excited, and no, I'm not going to be sweatin' in a cabin in the woods with outdoor plumbing and powdered eggs for breakfast... I'm going to Camp Kim where I have my very own beautiful (airconditioned) room waiting.
Let me explain... some of us get luckier than others in the in-law department, and while I've had a few in-laws that I wanted to throw back in the river (who shall remain nameless but thank you God they decided to throw themselves back), I have been ridiculously fortunate in the sister-in-law department. Every year we go to Austin for a family reunion of sorts with Handsome Hubby's ginormous family for July 4th... this year Dear Daughter and I are staying on for a week of Aunt Kim planned fun and frivolity. Poor boys have to come back home to work (just another reason to be glad we're not stinky boys)...
I told my flipping adorable, amazing, smart, beautiful sister-in-law that I didn't care what we did as long as I don't have to make any decisions or be in charge of anything, and let me tell you my friends she has come through in spades! I received the most beautiful agenda of activities we will be enjoying with my nieces and other sister-in-laws.
Among a variety of camp activities, we will be communing with nature (did someone say pool?), enjoying the arts (3D movie at the Alamo Drafthouse and big girl night out dancing to an 80's cover band... yes, please), creating arts and crafts (painting and wine tasting at Pinot's Palette... yes, YES, please), and learning valuable life lessons in how to manage our money (HELLO outlet mall!).
I will send you all some virtual postcards this week of our adventures...
Kum Ba Yah, peeps!
