Making coffee sounds simple, right? You turn on your Keurig, put the little pod or K-Cup into the holder, push down the mechanism, put your cup under and push the button. VOILA! Hot cup of coffee right at your fingertips!

One of which was replacing our carpet and sheet vinyl with new solid surface plank flooring.
Just because we live in an RV doesn’t mean that I have to forgo getting dressed up or give up the latest fashion. If any of you know me personally, I like to doll myself up when we go out to dinner, visit with friends and family or just to go shopping. I said to myself when we started this adventure that I was not going to allow myself to turn into…FRUMP GIRL.
