A weekend with the dogs; a new way of life, and a cup of coffee…priceless!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.

I had hinted recently that my husband and I have taken some major steps towards our retirement in the past few months.  The biggest step?  We finally bought that RV that we have always wanted.  We plan on becoming full-time RV’ers in the next year or so and traveling the United States.  Don’t worry, it has plenty of room for crafting.  Ha!  The Sitcom will be on the road!

Our next step is getting ourselves and the Sitcom dogs used to it.  A little at a time.  So our maiden voyage a few weeks ago took us to Tybee Island, GA for a long weekend.  The first weekend for us and the first time the dogs had ever been out on the road with the exception of vet visits.  Truly an adventure for all of us.

Our first step was stocking the RV with all the comforts of home.  Which of course, included coffee.  Since, frankly, I cannot function in the morning without a good dose of coffee, which was an issue in itself as I have never made my own coffee.  Yep, I know.  Ridiculous.  My husband and I spend a ton of money every month on fancy coffees from the local coffee shops.

Our issue here was two-fold.  We need to watch our budget much more closely now while we are downsizing, and we needed a way to make decent coffee while out on the road.  That is where the Keurig® K-Cup brewer and Maxwell House Single Serving Cups came in.  The Keurig® K-Cup brewer is easy enough that even I can operate it.  And it makes delicious single serve coffee!  My mornings were saved!

Maxwell House Café Collection® single serve cups are 100% Arabica coffee in three delicious varieties:

-House Blend

-French Roast

-Breakfast Blend

They are all delicious, and can be found exclusively at your local Dollar General at a great price!

So how was our first trip?

The weather was beautiful, the lighthouse was awesome.  We ate one evening at the Crab Shack.  And we took the dogs on lot of walks…

Oh wait, you wanted to know about the RV?  Well, I got over my initial fear of that big pipe that goes from the toilet tank to the sewer.  But I’m thinking that will totally be the husband’s job.  You know, along with the killing of spiders, the reaching of cups from the top cabinet, the taking out of the trash…we will add the poop thing.  In exchange, I’ll make him coffee every morning.  Sounds fair, right?

I haven’t gone over that with him yet, but I’m sure he’ll be on board…

Ralph took to the RV right away as he has already claimed his spot.

Faith, on the other hand is still adjusting.

In the meantime, we both enjoyed our Maxwell House Café Collection® single serve coffee every morning.  My favorite is the Breakfast Blend.  Very mild and delicious.  Be sure to swing by Dollar General and check it out.  And their website is hilarious.  Check out their Get Back to Basics House Rules.  This is my favorite, and my new motto…

Granted, the RV does not come with a dishwasher.  The husband says I’m the dishwasher.  Stay tuned for lots of great stories and follow along on our RV adventures.  It should be a blast!
