In celebration of Walking Dead coming back this weekend, Amber came up with a great idea for a post. Let’s email some of our favorite bloggers, who we know watch Walking Dead, and ask them a simple question: what one item would you take with you during the zombie apocalypse?
Amber wanted to participate in the round-up, so I thought I would be a pseudo Master of Ceremonies for the post.
First up is the ever-sassy Mekenzie from interiorsbykenz.com. She even went as far as to add a scary font to her picture.
In the event of a zombocalypse, I’ve decided to bring the comforter off my bed. It will serve many purposes in our survival. The duvet cover can be used as a make-shit tent cover. It can be used for the obvious reason, as a blanket. We will also be able to cut it up for bandages when needed. And last of all, it’s light to carry!
Good Job Mekenzie. Though you left out the part about how it just plain looks great *jazz hands*.
Next up is Amber’s major girl-crush Jacinda from Prudent Baby. Calm down Amber, let’s not make this weird.
In the event of the zombie apocalypse I would get practical and grab my purse. Chances are it has… Several stale snacks, my phone with some pictures of my kids and the phone numbers of my relatives (which I no longer know by heart) a few crumpled bucks, a diaper, and wet wipes. It also has a pair of underwear and a diet coke in it right now which I was planning to take out but I’m reconsidering… Ya know… Just in case.
Underwear and Diet Coke? Does this girl know how to party or what?

I thought about the Zombies coming and quickly ran through the list of meaningful items in my head. I am not a creature of “things have meaning” or emotional about personal items. I thought a camera and computer would be pointless – ya know since the zombies would definitely take out power, plus those things aren’t necessary anyway. What is meaningful to me? My family, who will be high tailing it with me… and these books. My beautiful BIG artistic bible and our family photo books. These images are of my precious husband, son and two daughters throughout the past few years. These books would fulfill us through wonderful Godly stories, keep our spirits high and remind us of the everyday moments we would have left behind. Stupid zombies.
Stupid zombies indeed. Nice photo too… you may want to think about pursuing a career in photography.
And the award for most creative goes to our friend Cecile from Fresh House on Bellaire.
I would probably grab at least some of the marble collection from my youth. In addition to the marbles, I’d probably also need to snag a print out of how to play marbles because if you weren’t born in the early 1900′s it’s kind of a lost art.
They may not seem like the best thing to grab during the zombie apocalypse but I bet if Carl had some marbles to play with Dale would still be alive because he wouldn’t be wandering around taunting zombies because he’s too busy learning how to play a game of Ringer. Or better yet, instead of Hershel’s daughter Beth (is that her name because no one cares about her anyway) solemnly singing a southern cumbia around the campfire, everyone could be playing a rousing game of marbles and take their mind off cleaning up the mess Lori’s love child with Shane has caused for the group.
Yes indeed, marbles seem like the perfect answer to a desolate and unforgiving world filled with flesh hungry monsters. Just remember once she’s turned, have no mercy, she’s not your mother anymore.
Whoa. Never heard a discussion about marbles get so intense. I mean that really got out of hand. You’ve obviously thought about this a lot Cecile.
Last up is the lady of the manor. The reason this post (and blog) exists. You may know her as Amber, but I call her Sexy McSexerton.
I’ve thought about this a lot like more than any sane person should. I debated on taking a chair or a rug, but I went the sentimental route. After I gather the family and all the food/weapons, I would take this illustrated portrait of us by our friend Chase. It’s incredibly accurate on how we looked in 2009. (Except Ramona was born with a ton of hair, no one was expecting that.)
It will always represent that moment when we became parents and all the joy that entails. Also I’m glad I figured this out, so I won’t be delayed with any last minute decision making.
Plus my hair looks bitchin’ in cartoon form.
So there you have it. Our Walking Dead Zombie Apocalypse round up. What did you guys think? Let us know in the comments what you would take!
