So you see, this one time I went glamping.
And it was a blast.
My first-world pampered self was not prepared for such a dreadful combination as this.
But I perservered.
Thankfully luck would also have it that I was with some amazing gals who didn't seem to hold it against me when I passed out on my top bunk in the middle of the afternoon out of sheer hormonal exhaustion and heat fatigue.
If you follow me on Instagram you can go back and look at all my #GlampingAr pics of the weekend to see pictures of all the fun we had - including a trip to Miss Fern's house, breakfast at Mather Lodge, and pictures from our Friday night Mexican Fiesta dinner.
Because not only did we Glamp, but we modeled as well, and so did all our stuff....
You see, Steph's husband works for the State Parks Dept, and word had somehow traveled to headquarters about this mysterious "Arkansas Glamping" expedition of ours, and so always on the hunt for new ways to promote our amazing Arkansas State Parks (they really are amazing) their ad people asked if they could send a team out to do a photo shoot of all our glamping our fun.
Being a group of bloggers, we all replied with a hearty "bring it on!"
And so they did.
Everyone "decorated" their own bunks (we stayed in Yurts!) and then we all pitched in on the rest of the areas.
All of these pictures are from Saturday evening, which turned out to be one of the most fun parts of the entire glamping adventure despite my initial bad attitude. Thanks to the cool breeze that appeared just in time, the magical refills of my mason jar with Happy Camper cocktails, that glorious shower at Stephanie's right before the photo shoot began, and my amazing co-glampers who kept me laughing the entire time, it was a highlight of the entire weekend.

(And don't worry, they probably won't complain about their periods like me.)
