Our Get Away Weekend!


Where else can you watch 5 episodes of Pioneer Woman in a row?


At the Deer Camp of course.

My sister Missy and her husband own 65 acres in Mississippi.

They call it the "little house in the big woods"

Last night I spent 2 1/2 hrs in this deer stand.

(I think it needed a little paint inside and some heat would have been nice) Ha!


This was my view!


Heidi and I didn't see a thing.

That's OK though.

We didn't bring a gun, just our camera.


After my walk back, I was served Homemade chicken soup. YUM!


I won't tell you how many pieces I had...nope.


I mean...could you pass up 6 pieces of layered heaven?



We then watched the Saints :( and Miss America.

Woke to this..


Maddy and her friend Emily searched for phone service...ha!


After breakfast we took a little ride through the woods.






I think Heidi likes it about as much as I do!


Their property is next to a National Forest.

No worries about pesky neighbors ;)


Brett and Missy shared with us some of their big plans ahead.


This frame is soon to become a guest cottage.

Yay me!


This will be the front porch view.


I think Heidi likes it too!


I can't tell you how much I needed to get away.


Nothing like nature to calm your soul.

Thanks Missy and Brett!

  3. God's Country always makes me feel refreshed.
    I love King Cake...the zulu one, but can't seem to find it. Which is okay I guess because I just recently found out I need to be gluten free. Uggh.
    So glad you had some "get away" time.

  12. I spied a Seattle, Washington sweatshirt!

    I LOVE this post!
    This place is magic! We're a "Cast & Blast" kind of family! My husband is a duck, goose, and upland bird hunter.

    We rooted for the Saints! I'm sorry. We were on pins and needles until the end!

  13. What a lovely place. There is nothing like breathing the country air to clear the mind and cleanse the soul. I'm sure a weekend with Missy never hurt you either!
