Can We Talk About 5 Things?


Monday, August 6
Oh geez. My trip is coming to an end. Or I might run into the wilderness of Maine and never come back. I guess you'll find out tomorrow. 
Anyhoo, one of my first bloggy friends is here to round out this most awesome guest post series. Michelle is the coolest of cool. So DO NOT miss this post. DO.NOT. 
Oh well hello there sweet readers of A Crooked Trail! I'm Michelle and I blog over at On The Adventure. If you're into mountains, dogs, and a sweet musical track every now and then, stop on by. I kind of love making new blog friends. And by kinda, I mean seriously.

While Kelley is off adventuring (um, jealous) I get the sweet, sweet chance to camp out here for a day. Am I pumped? Um, you better believe it. Could I be any more excited? Nope. No way, no how my friends. Not even if you hand-delivered a basket full of French Bulldogs to me right this very instant. Yeah, I know,

Friends, I am seriously excited to be here and to share a few outdoorsy things with you. Each week over at OTA I feature a post called "5 Things I'd Rather Be Doing". When I started this feature I was in grad school and it was my way of vicariously living the life I oh so dreamed of in the midst of textbooks, sticky notes, and a plethora of highlighters. It was my way of living life outside of my existence and today, sweet friends, is no different. Basically I just wish I was camping with Kelley and that brew-master husband of hers. Um, so much fun. I can't even deal.

I imagine that they look something like this.... except Kelley looks more like a girl (you know, because she is one):

Since I caaaaan't be camping out up in Maine with Kell, these are 5 things I'd most seriously rather be doing...

Oh friends, can you just imagine? I am thinking that a good 'ole camping trip is my near future, that's for sure. I hope you're having the time of your life, Kell. Go catch a fish, pop a tent, and hug a bear!

Michelle, I want to be doing and looking at all of these things. Way to make me long for a day off and a camping trip.

Say, take me with you when you go?

(P.S. I hope you're having an amazing time, Kelley.)
