Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
Do you have BIG plans for the fourth?
You can view more questions at Island Life.

Random Tuesday Thoughts

1. The shocker of the week was the death of Michael Jackson. So as each television station has been doing stories and playing his music, my 7 yr old has become very interested in Michael's songs. He now walks around the house singing "Beat It" and he can't believe that MOM listened to his songs and actually knows the words. And he absolutely does not believe that for my 11th birthday I was THRILLED to receive a t-shirt with Michael Jackson's Thriller album on it and MATCHING dangly earrings!!!! That was the best birthday EVER!!!!!

2.I want to thank my friend Kristen over at La Dolce Vita for pointing me in the direction of Artfire. I had never heard of it before and was looking for an outlet to sell some of my new Wish Bracelets.......take a look........

Aren't these the coolest thing? You can use them as a bracelet or an anklet and they are perfect to give to anyone for any occasion!!! You make a wish as you put it on, you wear it 24/7 and when the charm wears off then your wish shall come true!!! So check out my others at my Artfire Store called PinkShimmer.
3. We took 3 HUGE bowls of lettuce and spinach out of our garden yesterday. You know what that means......we'll be poopin' green all week!!!
4. Jake (my 7 yr old) has a birthday coming up in a couple of weeks. His list this year is much shorter than past years and it includes a couple of video games, a couple of books and legos. Not a $30 lego set.....he wants a $100 lego set.....WTF!???? I just can't bring myself to purchase a box of legos for $100 when he already has a rubbermaid tub filled with legos!!!! Am I a mean mom?

Crazy Question Monday

This weeks meme: personal likes or dislikes
Welcome to the JUNE 29th version of Monday Crazy Questions
1. what would you say is your biggest blessing ?
My family for sure
2. do you shop on line...Home goods or personal items? Can you tell us what personal items you look for??
I do shop online and the items vary from electronics, clothes, etc.
3. Name a song from your past that you have always loved. what year was it recorded?
Keeper of the Stars...that was our wedding song (1997)
4. If you found out there was a pedophile living in your neighborhood, would you take any action or ignore the fact??
Not sure what "take action" means. I probably wouldn't take out a front page ad in the paper announcing it BUT I would do my research and find out what type of car they drove, etc. and my kids would be no where near their house.
5. If you could live in any city In the USA...what would it be.
Some place that had a sandy beach out the back door
6. what is the one city you wouldn't live in even if you were paid to!?
Not ONE particular city. I love visiting the city but I'm just not a city girl. I love my corn fields and no neighbors!!!
7. If you were strapped for cash would you ask a parent or sibling for money?
If it were a matter of putting food on the table.....sure. If it were to buy a new coach bag....probably not.
8. what is your most favorite thing to do to relax when you are not working?
Sitting outside with a glass of iced tea (or wine :o) )
