Big Girl Day Camp

{Editor's Note: Worthwhile Wednesday will be delayed this will be worth the wait! Now you're on the edge of your seat in suspense! We will just pretend it's Groundhog Day and have a bit of deja vu when it posts. Thanks so much for your cooperation and understanding.}

In my randomness of Haphazard Thursday a few weeks ago, I mentioned that I wanted to go to camp. I felt that I needed a break and instead of the minis going to camp, perhaps Mom should attend. I talked with many of you via email or DM on Twitter and so many of you left comments that I have been thinking more about this genius idea.

Ok, so you don't have to be a mom or a wife...We all have job, schools, children, pets, boyfriends, spouses,homes, friends, family, careers, etc. that we could use a break from and get back in touch with our childish fun. Karen over at French Charming, which is a blog that I love to read mentioned the other day about taking a Thelma and Louise road trip and how fun it would be to just be spontaneous and take off with a great friend. She did mention that perhaps we could do without the kidnap and murder.

CAMPERS, get ready! At Camp ______________ (we need a FABULOUS Camp Name), campers will enjoy swimming, good food, afternoon drinks and snacks, arts and crafts, field trips, choice of recreational activities, and good times with friends while sleeping in camp tents*.

In detail, we could swim and lay by the pool, eat yummy food and make s'mores each night, happy hour and snacks in the afternoon, Martha Stewart crafts and lessons, field trips and recreational activities to include shopping, restaurants, manicures/pedicures, massages, etc. , and we could all sleep together telling stories and laughing in to the wee hours of the morning.

We could make camp shirts and other tacky camp memorabilia. This could be a planned getaway every summer. We could write letters to our friends after camp is finished and create a scrapbook of our week at camp with our fantastic friends.

I know there are still some details to iron out. We could pick a random location or the inaugural camp week could take place at Molly Lou Manor.

Suggestions are welcome and the Planning Committee looks forward to hearing from you.

Step right up and sign up for Camp _____________________. Registration starts now. Feel free to invite a friend!

*By tents, I mean a deluxe hotel or welcoming camper home. I am not running away from my life to sleep on the ground or with bugs.

Have a great weekend. Can't wait to catch up!


  1. Ooh! :Waves hands: It looks like I am the first official camper!

  2. This sounds like a grand and glorious idea!

  3. I must have missed the original post, but I am 100% on board as long as it does not resemble in any way a REAL camp. I didn't think I was girly until I went to camp. Oh boy. I'm a girl.

  4. lol...I'm loving this idea!!! And def. a deluxe hotel should be the tent!

  5. What a creative idea! It will be fun to see what y'all come up with! (Are you talking about a virtual camp?...ok, I am pretty gullible and clueless at times, so...)

    Anyways...Happy Camping!

  6. Anywhere, anytime...I'm in!

    Rest and relaxation, crafts, good food, manicures, pedicures, massages...sounds divine.

  7. What a great idea...

  8. Count me in! Sounds like just what I need!

  9. I'll sign up! especially because tents means a nice hotel or camper!


How I love comments...thanks for stopping by and sharing what you are thinking. Cheers!
