Top 10 Reasons I'm Looking Forward to Getting an RV

A few years ago, we made an executive decision to purchase an RV in the future and to live full time in that RV. I seriously cannot wait until the time comes that we are no longer throwing rent away on this tiny little cracker box apartment in which we live! 

Top 10 reasons I can't wait to get our RV:

1. I'll have a full size sink in the kitchen!! - My current apartment has a tiny little sink... I can't even get a pot in there to fill up with water... I have to use a measuring cup to put water into a pot. It's ridiculous!

2. I'll be able to paint and decorate! - I can't very well paint our rental, and I have some great ideas for the decor in our RV. I am going to go with a sort of retro 50's style. I can't wait!

3. I will actually have more room in the RV than I do in this apartment! - Did I mention we live in a cracker box? Our apartment used to be part of an old folk's home, so it is laid out really weird, but it works for us in our current situation. However, we plan on getting at least a 35' motorhome, so we will have more room and more storage than we do now!

4. We will have a stove! - Yep, we don't have a stove or an oven in our apartment. We have a 2-burner hot plate and a convection oven (the size of a toaster oven), plus a microwave, electric skillet and various other small appliances.  I can't wait to actually have a stove top that we don't have to put away after each use!!

5. Where ever we go, we will be home! - We will be living full-time in our RV, so we will always have our home with us!

6. We will get to see the country! - I have always wanted to travel, see new places, photograph new things, and meet new people. 

7. Working from the road - I will not have a regular JOB, but will be doing various things online and crafty stuff, while hubs will be a traveling respiratory therapy. Our schedule will be 13 weeks in each area. 

8. I will have time to focus on myself, hubs and our home - I'll have more time for fitness, cooking, baking, decorating, just basically keeping a nice home for me and hubs! 

9. Bulldogs - end of discussion!! ... ok... more discussion, we can't have pets in our current apartment, so when we get our RV we plan to get an English Bulldog and a French Bulldog to accompany us on our travels!

10. The climate!! - We plan to summer where the climate is moderate and winter where there is no cold or snow! I am so over snow, having lived the last 40 years in the Midwest. I am ready for sunny and 70's!! 

I have been pinning things to 2 pinboards on Pinterest for our upcoming adventures:

See ya on the road... in about 5 years! ;)
