Show and Tell - Stuck on an Island!

I really love these show & tell link-up's that Becky host's. It gives my mind a break and I can blog about something fun and different!  So here we go!

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

My Husband: Duh. I need someone there that I can rely on, but also that loves me and will keep my balanced and sane.
My Children: They come 2-for-1. I really don't need to elaborate here I don't think? But they are the air I breath so if I don't want to suffocate, they have to be there with me. LOVE them. Oh and if nothing else, they are constant entertainment.
My Sister & Mom: Okay that's cheating. But... whatever. Ha ha. I'd bring my Mom because she's my Mom. She would know how to make me feel better and do motherly things. And my sister because I couldn't imagine being on an island without her! Who would I quote silly movie lines with? Plus, no one else makes me laugh until I cry like she does.
My best friend Kiara: Because she is so easy to talk to and I just couldn't live without her.
My brother-in-law Mike: (my sister's hubby). Because he's like a camping pro. He knows weird little facts and how to do the most random things, so I think his skills would come in handy. Not to mention he's a total spaz (in a good way) and would keep things interesting!

2. Show us which island you'd like to be deserted at.
This one looks good to me. (Fiji!)

3. If you could only bring three items with you, what would those items be. Any why?
Only three?? How do you choose?

Hmm... well... first I'd bring my camera, obviously. The pictures would be priceless.

Second, I'd bring a fountain coke machine. Yep, you heard me. I love it THAT much that I wouldn't wanna give it up. And of course it would randomly, unrealistically be self-refilling so it never ran out.

Lastly. Am I allowed to bring my phone? Yah sure why not, it's my fantasy. Wouldn't you all want to follow along with my adventures on a deserted island via Instagram, Twitter, FB and every other social media outlet?? He he j/k. Kinda. But really, I think I'd bring my Tempurpedic mattress. Nothing like a good night's sleep ;-)

4. Show us 3 pictures that you would take with you.
{me, my mom & bennett}
{me and the hubs on the best date ever!!}
{first ever family picture with the 4 of us}
 5. What do you envision life would be like on that island? Do you think you would go into survival mode? Would you be like the survivor people and eat bugs? What qualities do you possess that would help you survive?

Oh man. I think I would kind of have to learn as I went along. The thought of eating bugs and other weird creatures really creeps me out and actually makes me want to gag. But I think I would figure it out if I had absolutely had to. I don't have any crazy amazing survival skills or anything, but I am strong willed and resourceful (I think!). So hopefully I would be able to contribute.
