Okay, before I begin this post, I have a confession. I write my blog posts in a journal when it’s nice and quiet in my house, then transfer them online. I wrote this blog post when we were beginning week 6 of homeschooling and apparently almost two weeks has gone past, so I’m editing the title a bit!
We recently wrapped up our stay at Destin West RV Resort on Okaloosa Island. If you’re interested in our campground review, click here. Make sure to check out our other reviews from other states as well!
Here’s a short video of some of our time at this resort!
RV or not, what is your favorite thing to do in the Destin, FL area?
Living in an RV always keeps you busy! Whether it’s fixing, updating, or reorganizing, you’ll never be bored! 🙂 Watch how we store our sewage hose with this quick and easy weekend project!
There are certain modifications that you just cannot live without while living in a tiny space, and this is definitely one of them! If you haven’t seen our VERY IN DEPTH owner’s review, you can check it out here, but we had some issues with our closet situation (shocking, I know!) We have a pantry/closet option that we’re using for my husband’s closet, however it’s so short that even shirts have about a foot of crinkle/fold at the bottom which made all of his shirts look awful. Watch below and find out how we fixed it!
It was about midnight and we were sleeping soundly in our RV, when we heard a loud pop that startled us all! I am so thankful that it happened this week as the hubby just returned from a week long business trip. Had it happened when he was gone, I probably would’ve ignored the sound and gone back to bed. We got up out of bed to explore the sound and walked into a room full of electrical smoke. After an hour or more of troubleshooting, we determined it was safest to unplug at the power supply to ensure there was no electricity going to the RV. Needless to say, it was a a long, quiet, hot night for us all as it’s summer still in Florida! Check out our video below, like, subscribe if you haven’t already, and share your comments!

I’m not sure if people still call it “the ATL” anymore or if that’s a thing of the past. Growing up there, we always giggled at that reference as we just called it “Atlanta”…easy enough right? We were going to be in Georgia on a trip and decided to head into Atlanta for a quick day trip. We had only been to Fernbank once for a school dance, and knowing we have a dinosaur-loving little boy, we figured no trip was complete without a visit to Fernbank Museum of Natural History! So we hit the road and headed over! If you’ve never been to Fernbank or are just traveling through with some time to kill, I HIGHLY recommend this Museum for young and old alike!
Prior to fulltiming, I spent some money on a few Norwex cloths because they were highly recommended for cleaning stainless, among other things. One of the reasons everybody loves Norwex is because they can be used for so many things! For whatever reason, when I went to clean the fridge, freezer, microwave, and stove for the first time…NOTHING HAPPENED!! It didn’t do anything! I was sooooo frustrated I had bought these cloths JUST for this reason. Yes, I use them for other things, but this was why I bought them. Discouraged, I turned to my group of mom friends for help. It turned out a few other moms had the same issue and were seeking advice as well. One mom friend had the most unusual idea and I decided to give it a try and it totally worked! Watch this video and let me know what you think!
Have you ever heard of this?? Have you tried it? What did you think?
Have you ever seen someone clean their entire house in 5 easy steps? Have you wondered exactly how to easily clean your RV? Here is a video on how we clean ours! We also highly recommend having a super cute helper like we have! 😉
Whether you travel or not, you’re bound to need a night out with the girls, unless you’re a guy…then you could probably care less! Regardless, I highly recommend getting with a local bakery to see if they do any cake decorating classes, private ones specifically. I don’t know why I’ve never thought of this before, but we had so much fun when a friend planned a private party for just the girls! We brought food and drinks and came armed to decorate! We had so much fun, I had to plan another one!
People have asked us how difficult it is to pick up and go while fulltiming. “Fulltimers tend to have so much stuff setup outside” is a comment we frequently hear. A few days ago, we completed our first “move” while fulltiming. We figured we’d videotape the outside tear down to give you an idea of just what is involved in “moving” our RV. We didn’t have time to get an inside video, so we’ll make sure to tape that in a few weeks when it’s time to pack up again, but I’m happy (and shocked) to say that we didn’t have any mishaps inside during the move. Enjoy and let us know if you have any questions or comments! Don’t forget to give us a “thumbs up” if you liked our video, and as always, SUBSCRIBE! 🙂
