Aloha Friday #64

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we 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.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Today’s question is:

What’s the last purchase that you made?

    I guess I would have to say lunch for myself on Wednesday! Before that, if you mean an actual item, I bought a book for my daughter while we were out having a mother-daughter day.

  2. Lori Downs says:

    Groceries ewwww yuck!! wish i could have said something fun and exciting but I cant

  3. Deb - Mom of 3 Girls says:

    Hmm, can I assume that you don’t mean the milk, apple juice, chocolate (for me) and Suzy Q’s (for Ron) that I picked up at Walgreens tonight? :) Um, other than groceries, probably would be the plastic bins I bought after Christmas to organize the girls’ new stuff in.

  4. TheAngelForever says:

    At a store that would be groceries before the ice/snow storm Tuesday. Online I rented a stroller to use at Disney World.

  5. Louise says:

    I went to Albertsons and bought groceries. I’m upset at myself because when I got home I realized that if I had spent 16 more dollars I would have gotten a coupon for 15.00 off next time. Sometimes shopping with kids is a nightmare.

  6. Vicki says:

    The last thing I bought was supper at McDonald’s on Monday night. We went to sign the final papers on our new house and it was late, we were tired and decided to just pick something up. Love me some FF’s!!

  7. Krista says:

    Hmmm… well, yesterday I exchanged a Christmas present for some super duper hand cream (it’s so dry my hands are dying) and before that… it was some groceries and a vest pattern to make a new vest for my father-in-law! It was his Christmas present, but seeing as he had to help me pick out the fabric it’s not done yet!

  8. Casey H says:

    I actually just came back from Target and I bought myself an outfit!! The first time in YEARS that I have bought myself an adult, nice, complete outfit. AND it was LESS than $40. Shirt, Sweater, Pants and Jacket!! I love clearance items!!!

  9. Alicia @ Experiencing Each Moment says:

    Tonight I had to buy a new lunch box for my son. Random, I know! Somehow through the holidays we’ve misplaced it!

  10. Em Dy says:

    Lunch today was my last purchase. But before that, I paid for registration fees and community tax. My last “for me” purchase was a movie ticket last Tuesday.

  11. Christine says:

    I can’t say what it is, cause it’s for Lori of Downs Gang!! *tee hee* Then she’d know from reading this and the surprise would be ruined!!

  12. sagemom says:

    Well, I went on Land’s End yesterday and pretty much got sucked in with their clearance sale! They have really cute reindeer boots on sale and their winter coats so I purchase a bunch of things for next season, hoping my daughter would fit into them!
    Nice to be back on Aloha Friday……missed it!

  23. Andrea McMann says:

    This is SO not glamorous…It was envelopes! I had something to mail and no envelopes, so I stopped by Wal-Mart after dropping my son off at school yesterday. I also bought a pink flamingo wood cutout for my daughter and a ladybug cutout for my son. :)

  24. Carey says:

    I actually have a good answer! I bought a few bath things from an Etsy shop for a friend’s birthday on Wednesday night. I’m excited about this gift. I hope she loves them!

  50. Qtpies7 says:

    Wow. I spent over $11 buying lunch and drinks for myself for work yesterday. Two bottles of Dasani, a bottle of Diet Coke with Lime, a frozen meal, and I bought two bags of chips because they were buy one get one free. I have been nauseated for 8 days and the only thing that helps is barbeque chips. (no, not pregnant, just sick) It is the weirdest thing, but when I am sick, I eat chips and it helps.
    After spending all that $$$, I only drank one water and part of the chips at work.

  51. playing hookey says:

    spinach for dinner

  52. pam says:

    Groceries, off course. It seems to be where all my money goes. Thanks for doing this, it looks fun!!

  53. Heatherlyn says:

    Oh, I actually have something other than groceries!

    Yesterday on my way to volunteer in my kids’ classrooms I picked up a Monster drink. I really don’t like carbonation and I never just drink stuff like that, but I’ve found that my brain just shuts off (I guess it doesn’t find the volunteering stimulating enough) and I totally start to fall asleep while I’m helping those cute little kindergarteners read thier little books.

    I had been driving to a local quicki-mart in between the kindergartener and 1st grader’s classes in order to get an energy drink so that I don’t just totally nod off (plus it is miserable to feel that way).

    So, now I just pick one up on my way before I even get there.

    IT REALLY HELPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. AJ says:

    Apple Juice, Hawaiian Punch and Hot cocoa

  55. kelleythejewelrylady says:

    The last thing I bought was 5 tins of Peppermint Bark from Trader Joe’s! I get hooked on this stuff every year, and it’s seasonal, so I have to stock up before it’s no longer on the shelves. If you haven’t tried it, don’t….it’s really addicting!
