Stranded on a deserted island and giveaway

6 reasons Why You Would Be Doomed if you Were Stranded on a Deserted Island all by yourself???

So I borrowed this from Georgie. She is cute... and you should read her list...too funny!

1. I am NOT a fan of snakes. But snakes and I like the same places....warm rocks next to water. I don't think I would be brave enough to kill a snake. Eww...even just the thought is freaking me out.

2. I'm not sure I could start a fire. Now don't get me wrong, I've watched my fair share of Man vs. Wild...Bear Grylls, you are nice to look at...but I don't think I could scratch a rock for an hour, to blow on a little spark. I'd get bored. I can only fish for about 30 minutes.

3. I'm going to be honest here, I'm not strong. Sure, I can throw my two year old up into his carseat but opening a jar of jelly..not so much. I think you have to be strong to build a shelter like Bear.

4. Bananas give me heartburn. My mom had the same problem when I was a kid. Kinda weird. I still eat them. Can you say no to a banana split? I think that's illegal.

5. I guess I'm a assuming it's a tropical island. If it was an island in Alaska or even Washington, I would definitely not make it!! See #2 plus the fact that it's cold there at night, even with a fire. I sleep with no less than 2 blankets at night. And that's in New Mexico. It was 80 today. In Alaska, I had a heating blanket that was turned up to 8 on any given night. The cold ones, the full 10.

6. If I was able to survive without texting, and got sister would kill me for being tanner than her. No joke. And my mom. They pay for their tans.

So there you go...would you survive on an island??

I'm not having a giveaway but Jaybird is. This is what she is giving away! So go check her out!

I would NOT survive on a deserted island. No internet? No deal.

I would not survive because I don't WANT to. Being stranded on a desert island sounds completely unpleasant. I want a house, thanks.

Oh, and where would my chocolate come from?

i am not the best at waiting when i am hungry i can just see me banging on the side of a coconut tree looking for the button for a drive thru service.

I would like to think I could survive, but most likely I wouldn't.

Rebecca said...

No way would I survive on a deserted island - can't even fathom snakes on TV, let a alone near me!

Stopping by from Georgie as I try to visit all of the SSS participants!

Congrats on new baby on the way - and many thanks to your husband for serving!
