Let's Get Acquainted Linky

Home sweet home! We just returned from a trip to Colorado and I'm trying not to think about the fact that spring break is almost over. If you're lucky enough to live in Colorado...we love your beautiful state! It was hard to leave, but we are glad to be home (at least that is what we keep telling our kids). 

To help me avoid reality, I'm trying to catch up on all the bloggin' that I missed.

Latoya, from Flying into First Grade, is hosting another Let's Get Acquainted linky party!

 The topic this week is... 

Stranded on an island...what 3 things would you have to have with you? 

 1. family? And if they are not allowed to come...then my phone which has lots of pictures of my family.
 2. Water - I really wanted #2 to be chocolate, but that doesn't seem sensible.  So...water it is. I hate to be thirsty/hot and I associate the word "island" with both. 

 3. Sunscreen - My skin is butt white and it gets crispy like a lobster if I don't wear SPF 70 at all times. I even buy makeup with SPF 30 so that my ghostly lookin' skin stays that way in the winter.  I live in Michigan folks.  The sun rarely shows it's face in the winter here.  But, just in case it does...this girl is ready! This is my favorite sunscreen. I use about 5 bottles of it all by myself each summer (seriously). Love this stuff!
 Hope you'll stop by to visit Latoya and link up for her party!  

I'm workin' on a freebie or two for later this week and I still have lots of catchin' up to do.


  1. Sunscreen and water! Duh! Maybe I can bring my iPad over to your island and we can share :)

  2. I'm totally with you on the sunscreen. I love that yours is above SPF50, too.


  3. Aw man...I forgot to bring water. Can I count it with the food I brought??? :)

  4. Ah man! Help! When I click on the blog button for Latoya, it goes to a totally different blog! Help!

    1. Now that is strange...I just tried the link for her blog button and ended up in the same mysterious place. I just removed the button from my post and let Latoya know to check on it. The other links in my post really go to her blog (I hope). Oy...

  5. Water and sunscreen are good ones. I didn't even think about those! It sounds like Colorado was fun. Have a great first day back to work!

  6. I'd trade the sunscreen for chocolate and just stay in the shade. :-)

  7. I like Neutrogena Ultra Sheer too. Not as heavy. I thought of dark chocolate after I wrote my post. :)

  8. Water and sunscreen sound like great ideas. Maybe we'll get stranded on an island with huts and a fresh water spring.

  9. I think my sunscreen is 65 SPF. Who knew there was one even stronger than that!

  10. Hi Kimberly!
    I am so glad we both picked a sun lotion for one of our items! You definitely have me beat with the SPF though!!
    Have a great week!

  11. Sounds like a fun Spring Break! Colorado is beautiful and can't wait to return for a visit! You have some good items for your island. I think I should have included sunscreen. Living in Illinois, it's been so cold I haven't thought about the sun much. Hopefully summer will be here soon! Happy to be one of your newest followers!

  12. Sounds like you had a great Spring Break! What did you get to do in Colorado? I hear it is spectacular! Your answers are so practical...think you would make it longer than me!!
