My weekend & what would I do if I were on a deserted island?

10:28:00 AM

Happy Monday everyone! First off I want to ask, notice anything different around here?!? Yeah, well hopefully you do. A blogger I adore by the name of Whitney {You can find her own little piece of the web universe at I Wore Yoga Pants To Work}. She does great work so if you are looking for a blog makeover, check out her out & GetWhittyWithIt :P

So remember how I said I was doing nothing this weekend?! Well that turned out to not be true... I guess it's okay since none of what I did was actually planned. Friday I got to leave work early to go pick my grandpa up from the bars,he literally had to twist my arm to join him for one drink. One turned into two and two turned into going to another bar & that turned into going out to dinner with him...
If you follow me on instagram you saw this little beauty on Friday with the caption "'Just one more'Grandpa said"
Needless to say I didn't get home until around 7:30 and I was tiiiired. Not too tired to go to Best Buy with my amazing husband and pick me up a new laptop {is it okay that I may be a little in love with this inanimate object?!} Saturday night were some UFC fights & so we met up with some friends at Hooters to watch them. I will say, I'm not too big of a fan of actually watching them but I enjoy the social aspect, hanging out and drinking all night with everyone. Sunday was a family day, his & mine just like it always is.

Some fun instagram pics from this weekend I felt were worth sharing...

So now onto one of my favorite link-ups as of late... Show & Tell with From Mrs to Mama

1. Tell us, if you could only take 5 people with you to a deserted island, who would it be, and why?

My Husband, My Mom & Dad, My two sisters... {Now I'm going to include both my dogs too, sure I consider them people but in this case I'll call them animals so we can all go together :P} I don't think I would be able to survive without all of them!

2. Show us which island you'd like to be deserted at.

3. Tell us, if you could only bring 3 items with you, what would those items be. And why?

My Kindle - Okay we are going to pretend that somehow we have WiFi here & bringing my Kindle means I would have an infinite supply of books to read. {Yes I do realize that if we had WiFi there would be a great chance we wouldn't be deserted but just play along, okay?} It would be nice to have a little escape into the world of a book from time to time.
A blanket & pillow- They can count as one right?! Having a little bit of comfort at night would be nice.
My Wedding Album- Just to have a little bit of home :)

4. Show us 3 pictures that you would take with you.
Andrew & I with my grandpa in NOLA for his bday!
My whole family on our wedding day :)
Ironically enough, a picture of us on a beach in Mexico hah
5. Tell us what you envision life would be like on that island. Do you think you would go into survival mode? Would you be like those Survivor people and eat bugs? What qualities do you possess that would help you survive. Do share.

I think at first I would be a little bit petrified {to say the least} but I would hope that I could adapt and figure out just what I needed to do to survive. If I had all of the people I listed above with me, I would be just fine. Eating bugs? Probably not, I would have to be in a very desperate state to eat a bug... I would eat a lot of other animals and things before I ate a bug... Survivor & Fear Factor would NOT be my thing. {Andrew on the other hand would eat just about anything so I feel like he would survive just swimmingly lol}
