A few months ago, we posted about how much we love our Nube from Sierra Madre Research and how it is our preferred camping shelter for our trips. However, we also mentioned that Sierra Madre Research was coming out with a new model that they called the Stratos. We preordered and it finally came! Watch our unboxing and our initial impressions below!
We just passed the four month mark of pregnancy and it's time to start getting serious at the baby registry list. However, after seeing the amount of stuff just for babies in this store, we had a hard time taking some things seriously... :)
Maddie got a new backpack for camping last Christmas and after a few great trips with it, here are her thoughts!
Happy Memorial Day everyone! Today on the blog I talk about a trip my mom and I took three years ago and the opportunity we had to see my great uncle's name on the Vietnam Memorial. For details, see video. :)
Jared and Robby ended up in Montreal on the same evening for work. Being a Canadian food newbie, Jared took Mr. Rob up on trying out some smoked meat and poutine!
I feel the video is pretty self explanatory. :)
Over the weekend, Nike with three elite runners attempted to run the marathon in under two hours. Something people say is impossible.
Never mind that I usually haven't event broken 13.1 by the two hour mark. These people are FAST.
Even if you are not a runner, here's some pretty amazing takeaways that we can apply to our lives as we try to do the impossible.
Tuesday was our last day in Disney World but we ended on a high note as we ate breakfast with Mickey, Pluto, Lilo and Stitch. I was so excited to finally get a photo with Stitch!
Monday was all about Magic Kingdom. We hit the highlights and ate some great food. We even managed to get a few cute pictures while we were at it!
Sunday was Half Marathon day! We woke up bright and early but thankful for the approved walk path to the start line from the Polynesian. Instead of having to wake up at 3:00 AM, we got to "sleep in" until 4:15 and we were on our way by 4:45. Felt like a Disneyland race...
Saturday we chose not to go into the park and instead, hit the golf course! While no one would be in the runnings for the Masters, we had a wonderful time enjoying the beautiful weather and the fantastic company.
It's a great Disney Week this week! This trip we headed to the East Coast and checked in at the Polynesian for a great weekend with family while running the Star Wars: Dark Side race!
It's going to be a long time in the making, but we are finally redoing our front room. It's now going to become our office and our music room! Check out the video below to see all the work we put into the first phase of the project!
We are in the final countdown for our trip to run the Star Wars: Dark Side race at Walt Disney World! There's a lot to think about when packing for a destination race and I thought I would share and all inclusive list of what I bring to a RunDisney race!
Last time we talked about our garden it was just putting the seeds into the soil to germinate. Now, we are actually putting in the infrastructure of our new gutter garden and transplanting those seeds to our backyard!
This last weekend we got away to hike out at Caprock Canyon State Park. A few hours away, it was a part of Texas I hadn't seen before and it did not disappoint.
Today we are talking about my favorite gear for camping, The Nube by Sierra Madre Research!
This is basically a suspended tent for your hammocks. Jared and I love our tent, but never slept very well on our camping trips due to sleeping on the ground. Plus, our tent would flood during those lovely Texas spring rainstorms.
Enter the Christmas I bought Jared a hammock. He is so excited about it, he tells me about this fantastic company called Sierra Madre Research. And, they have an ingenious system that allows us to sleep well and stay dry.
March means it's camping season! We are going to be sharing reviews of the two shelters we use the most. This week, it's our MSR Hubba Hubba Tent!
Our garden has been a love/hate relationship for us...
We really just need to work on our timing.
Which is why we are making sure we start our seeds now.
See the plans we have for our garden in this update!
This week on March 2nd, Texas will be celebrating it's Independence Day from Mexico. March 2nd is the day we drafted our Declaration of Independence from Mexico in the little shack in Washington-on-the-Brazos. Soon after, the Alamo would fall and soon after that, Texas would defeat Mexico.
