Pieland Island

I love Northern Michigan!  It's so relaxing and rejuvenating.  We're back from Mackinaw Island and it was a boatload of fun!  Here are the girls and I having a picnic after biking around all morning:

In honor of Northern Michigan I'm including a Kid Rock song for your rocking out pleasure.  In honor of islands, I've got an island commercial for you, and a Bud Light one at that!  All this island living got me thinking about the age old question: what books would I take with me to a dessert island?  (That's not a typo by the way.  My imaginary island has cupcakes falling from trees instead of coconuts, and pieces of pie walking around instead of crabs).  My list* changes daily, but here it is for today:
1.  The Harry Potter series. (yes, I count that as one giant book, ok?  It's my flippin' island.)
2.  To Kill A Mockingbird (which I may need to do, should I get sick of the sweets)
3.  Where the Red Fern Grows (a childhood fave- plus, I may get much needed hunting tips)
4.  Triathlon Training for Dummies (I may as well stay in shape, especially with all the fatty foods around)
5.  Hatchet (another childhood fave with beaucoup survival tips)

*This doesn't include the Bible of course.  That will be in the nightstand.  Oh, your imaginary island doesn't have a Hilton?  That stinks.

I wanna go up there so bad! I will be enjoying myself on the beaches of Grand Haven this weekend though so that's not too bad I supppose :)

I'll join you to keep you company...and I'll make sure to bring a spoon. You have ice cream in your island, right?
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Following you back.

Love your list and you girls look like you're having so much fun! I'd have at least one cabana boy on my island to bring me drinks and wave the palm frond, it's my island right! LOL

@Nicole: Oo! Is it Coast Guard weekend? Have fun!
@Sofia: Thanks for swinging by! There's most definitely ice cream! Flavors galore!
@Margi: Yes! Why stop at 1 cabana boy!? Have a whole fleet of them! :)

Loving the Kid Rock video! You gotta have a little Kid on your island too!!!!!!!

You bring Harry Potter and I'll bring Twilight, and we can share. I'm coming to the island with you!!!

Please bring Twilight! I imagine any day now hotels will be keeping that in the nightstand too but until then we'll have to pack it!
