Join Me on My Vintage Camper Renovation

Perhaps you've heard of Potomac? Maybe you've even seen the show with all of those women in their big houses, fighting over whose turn it was to host the next big event or who's sleeping with who. Yup, that's my neighborhood. But I'll let you in on a secret... I'm not orginally from here. I grew up in a small town called Pasadena. No, not California or Texas, but a tiny blip on the map in the middle of nowhere, Maryland. In my hometown, almost every block had a camper sitting on their driveway and camping was something you did every summer. I couldn't wait to get out of that small town and on to bigger and better things. Well, I guess you can take the girl out of the Dena, but you can't take the Dena out of the girl because here I am thirty years later, in my big house, with my three kids and missing the adventures of my youth. 

 

Now this is the part where my husband has declared my crazy, and out of my mind, and maybe he's right, but when I first saw her I knew she was destined to be mine! Yes, that 1977 Serro Scotty Sportman Highlander was just sitting there looking like she was just waiting for someone to breathe some life back into her, so I did what any "normal" person would do... I pulled into the driveway and went up to the door to ask if they were interested in selling her. Ms Rose was as nice as could be and offered her to me for free and even volunteered to pay to have her towed to my house! How could I refuse? I said yes right then and there. Of course, I now have to think of the logistics of getting this beauty to my house (that is an hour away, without her falling apart on the highway), as well as where to put her when she arrives (no room in our garge for her unfortunately, unless I choose to throw out all of my Christmas decorations, and that's just not happening).  Of course the biggest question.... HOW DO I ACTUALLY RENOVATE A CAMPER????

Join me on this crazy journey as I figure out what to do with Rosie, and show you what a "real" housewife living in Potomac is all about.
