Aloha Friday #65

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 is your dream job?

About the author:
Owner and founder of An Island Life. Sharing my life as a mother to 3 wonderful daughters, working as a flight attendant, and living a blessed life in Hawaii.

  4. Maybe It's Just Me... says:

    I have to say that I love what I am doing right now – teaching.

    I agree- I teach third grade in the district I grew up in and I can’t even imagine anything better. :o )

    I would really love to be a crime scene investigator. But because of so much time creating our family I just haven’t had the time for college yet.

  7. Abby says:

    At this point in time my dream job would be to stay at home with my little man full time. Unfortunatley that is not in the cards at this point in time!

  8. Just Mom says:

    To be paid to blog.

    I’m a first-time Aloha Friday participant. I’m also a former resident of Honolulu. The Aloha Friday idea is a wonderful idea. Thanks for hosting it.

  9. Louise says:

    Is to work from home creating webpages for people and companies. Or working at Pixar designing cartoons. Either one, so I can use my comp sci and my creative art side

  10. Bridgette says:

    Always wanted to be a dancer on tour with Janet Jackson! LOL!

    Actually it is my current job: being a SAHM.

  14. Tara says:

    hmm I would run an orphanage!

  15. Deb - Mom of 3 Girls says:

    Honestly, I really don’t know. Something with computers – that was the part that I really loved about my previous job. And I love what I’m doing now with blogging, product reviews and such – although it’s not really a ‘job’ per se. I wish there was a way that it could be though – I’d happy turn this into a career if it were a possibility. :)

    Actually, I think my dream job would be something I love doing that would allow me the flexibility to be there for my family and kids the way I want to be. But does such a thing really exist? Sigh.

  16. Jen says:

    This is an easy one! I would LOVE to be a casting director for a major motion picture, preferably a romantic comedy.

    Or to be a cupcake decorator. Oh, the decisions!

  24. Margo says:

    I would either publish and edit my own magazine, be a book editor or a movie producer.

  51. Lisa C. says:

    hahahaha i like just being mommy for now… so, I’d
    have to say it’s my ideal job…
    It may not be the best hours, or even very flexible right now, but you can’t beat the pay… (kisses, hug, smiles, etc.)

  52. Sarah says:

    I love staying home with my kids and wouldn’t trade it for any job. That said, I wouldn’t mind if it came with a paycheck!

    I’ve wanted to be a cake decorator since I was a kid, but I have neither the talent or the patience for it.

  53. Pegsy says:

    It’s kind of a toss up between photographer or wedding planner.

  54. Donetta says:

    Hay Sweetie , Be safe. The kids and I were just speaking of you last night. Dove asked if you would send all of us flight tickets to the Islands. Ha!
    Well your a stewardess…. and you live there. Sounds logical…:)

    I am doing my dream job. I longed for 16 years to be a mother. I always longed to be a stay at home Mom, I am enjoying service work in the elementary helping out under privileged and learning disabled kids without having to have a boss. I am growing my own food, raising chickens and have an awesome sewing /art and crafts studio. I have arrived.
    I always wanted a home of my own and a man that loved God (not a religious man).
    I am so blessed!
