Aloha Friday #84

Filed under aloha friday, memes

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!

My question is:

What are your plans for the weekend?

Unfortunately, the original Mr. Linky isn’t available right now. Hope this works instead.

    I’m heading to Los Angeles to visit my mom.

  2. Becca says:

    I feel like I will be spending most of the weekend at work, but it will be worth it when I see my paycheck.

  3. Jennifer says:

    We will be spreading the tree mulch from our downed trees and then replanting two new trees. I need tree help:

  4. The Social Frog says:

    Tonight we are going to listen to the Symphony Orchestra, on Saturday we are going to the Drive-In and I’m not sure about Sunday yet.

  5. Anissa says:

    Saturday we have a big fish fry at church. Sunday we are suppose to BBQ — yummy!
    The rest of the time hand out at home and swim.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Kari A. says:

    Hey, how’d you get that “special” linky?? I would love to do that for my meme next week as I am getting a little tired of it not working. Please help.

    No plans for the weekend just yet. Is it sad that the only reason I knew it was Friday was because of this meme?

  7. Vicki says:

    My family plans are to go boating this weekend! I’m taking my book in case everyone decides to go fishing. I don’t like just sitting doing nothing, I’d rather be skimming across the water. But, if I’ve got to sit, I want a book with me!!

  8. Sarah says:

    My plan is to survive. It’s been a long week, my husband has been prepping his car for a concours and I’m feeling like a single parent. Stupid car. ;) So it’ll be another long day with me and the kids on Saturday, Sunday he works in the morning and then we have a birthday party to go to. Oh, and grocery shopping. Joy. LOL.

  9. Erin @ Closing Time says:

    We are moving this weekend! We’ll pack up the truck over the weekend, and move on Monday morning!

  10. Amy O'Neal says:

  19. Deb - Mom of 3 Girls says:

    Hmm, we have a lot going on – but everyone has separate things planned. Ron has to work on Saturday like usual. Abby will be going on a beach trip with a group that my SIL and niece belong to with them all day. I’ll be taking Hannah and Becca to Hannah’s last soccer game of the season and then either hanging out at home with the two of them or finding something interesting to do afterward.

    On Sunday, both Abby and Hannah have a birthday party to attend in the late afternoon/evening – I’m not sure what else we’ve got going on other than that.

    Phew – sorry you asked? ;)

  20. Pamela Kramer says:

    Soccer Tournament

    We are going to Seattle – staying with my college roommate – so my husband can enter a Magic tournament. You know, the card game? ;) Anyways, if he wins he gets an invite to the “pro” tour event in Hawaii. How I would love to go to that, but I doubt it’s going to happen…

  82. Queen of the Road says:

    Going to start my novel (and yes, that sound you hear is my agent’s eyes rolling).

    On second thought (now you see why my agent’s eyes are rolling) I’ll be watching the new fox litter of 6 frolick in the backyard.
