Tropical Island – Who Would You Take…

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 21, 2010

Alrighty friends, it’s tropical island time!  I have really enjoyed reading your responses and getting to know some of you a bit more!

Now that we have our foods, our utensils and our small kitchen appliances, it’s time to decide WHO we will be taking to this beautiful tropical isle.  I’d love to know who you’d want to take to this paradise!

(Please only include first names. Generalize, BFF, daugther, spouse, if you prefer.)

(And in case you were wondering, that photograph was taken on a small island off the coast of Samana, Dominican Republic. I miss it sometimes.)

Looking forward to who else will be on the island with us!!!

I would take my husband since he is my best friend. Plus, he is a fantastic masseur!

I would take Beth my middle child. We are always making plans to run away together. The three others in our house have bi polar and somedays that dream is the only thing that keeps up going!

Usually I would choose my husband, but this year I would take my baby sister. She’s turning 50, and I would love to spend special time with her celebrating.

Husband … I mean, if I don’t take him I’m going to have to carry that espresso machine myself. ;-)

I would definitely take the husband. He really is my best friend and we can laugh together for hours.

I’d want my daughter to be on a nearby island with my parents so I could see her for a little bit, then ship her off again. This mama needs a break!

I’d, too, like to say just me, but after a while it would get boring. If I could only take one, it would be my daughter. Otherwise, daughter, husband and my bff and her husband. *sigh* she and I often talk about our toes in the sand…Oh, yeah, I want a cabana boy, too :D

I’d be taking my twin sister, because we haven’t been able to see each other in over five years due to the high cost of airplane tickets. It’s hard not being able to see my best friend…my sister is the greatest! But because we both homeschool our children, and she has seven sweet kiddos, we rarely even are able to visit on the telephone, either. I miss her bunches!

I would take my daughter who is married…she needs a break from what she’s going through and because we have so much in common we would not be bored one bit ! Just give us a couple books and a beach chair and we’re fine.

Being a single mom with a home daycare, I could totally use this vacation…I would take special someone, so I could have someone to share it with.
