Monday Listicles

Rainy days!

All of the sudden Pacific Northwest is looking like the movies say it does. Wet and gray. Perfect for cuddling up on the couch with a warm cuppa tea and a good book. Which is why we spend the whole weekend outside, hiking and jumping the muddy puddles. Long live Autumn!

Are you enjoying your Fall so far? One way to remember warmer days is to pretend to be on a deserted island. And thanks to Ashlee this week you can invite 10 celebrities with you to keep you company. I could not even think of ten celebrities and was about to purchase some glossies to copy and paste some famous folk from when husband said: come on love, we can do this together. So we imagined our family being shipwrecked and chose ten celebrities we will invite to be stuck there with us. They can call it vacation if they want to. You are welcome, rich and famous!

Next week:

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. Bear Grills

That’s just being reasonable.

2. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman

Cause they are fun and someone will have to keep our son entertained.

3. Gordon Ramsey

Cause we need to eat. Possibly great food. While being entertained.

4. Russel Peters

Cause he is funny.

5. Keith Richards

Cause we would love to see what he sustains on.

6. Jack Johnson

He just belongs on an island. Might as well hang out with us on ours.

7. Tina Fey

Cause we bet she is great company.

8. Scarlett Johansson

Husband tried to come up with some reasonable explanation to justify her making the list. I am totally fine if she joins us. As long as she brings Gerard Butler with her.

9. Miguel Ángel Jiménez

We will have a lot of time to work on our golf swing. Who better to practice with.

10. Hillary Clinton

My husband just really wants to pick her brain. He loves her work. I do to. Plus she can babysit when we go to the secluded palm tree on date night.

    Oh, this list is good. I would invite Anthony Bourdain instead of Ramsey. Will have to sleep on it and get my list done in the morning. Love it. :)

    I love Bear Grylls!
    I’d invite Jamie Oliver and Henry Cavill. One to make me yummy food, the other one I can just gawk at.

    Ramsey has language a little to colorful to be around children. I would choose Alton Brown and Jacques Torres because Alton could teach me why and Jacques is the ultimate chocolate guy. Had to look up Bear, yes as long as he didn’t mind me staring. Cutie!

    Some of these people I don’t know, but I have Tina Fey and Hillary Clinton in common with you! You can keep Keith Richards and Gordon Ramsey on your island! 😉 Haha!

    I had Tina Fey on my list too, but then switched out Jeff Dunham at the last minute. I love Jamie and Adam on your list… that would have been a great one for entertainment!

    We both picked Chef Ramsey! In retrospect, I can see that he may be a popular pick for today’s list. Thanks for hosting the Monday morning listicles fun!

    LOVE this, I’m also pro-vaccine!

    Morning! I just wanted to let you know I’m a big fan of your blog! I also just nominated you for a blog award, it’s called the Liebster Award. Here’s the shout out on my blog:

    You don’t have to participate if you don’t want to, I just wanted to use the opportunity to feature some fellow bloggers and made some new bloggy friends!

      Oops don’t know why that says I’m pro-vaccine lol, must have accidentally copied and pasted from something else!

    I laughed out loud at Scarlett and Gerard. Perfectly reasonable, I think. :)

    I am thinking all you really need is that first one. Bear can do it all.
    But if he needs some help, I do believe you’ve made a fine choice of Gerard Butler as 2nd in command.
    You know there is no way this fangirl can stop at 10. :)

    I love you even more that you included Jack Johnson in your list! He’s coming to Nashville in a few weeks and his ticket prices are ridiculous! Unfortunately I won’t get to see that lovely man, but someday!

    Oh my, top ten songs, what a good idea. If I hadn’t graduated in 1991 (aka the worst year for music ever), I would totally do that one!
