Please feel free to snag any of these Aloha Friday headers. If you’re the creative type and would like to design your own header and have it listed here, just let me know. I’ll include a link back to your site so that you receive credit for your hard work!

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:

Are you a good secret keeper?

I think I am. I’m always tempted to tell someone but I’m afraid that it will get back to the person who told me the secret in the first place.

    I am, people tell me things all the time and most of the time I forget. Which is probably whey they tell me. I can definitely keep a secret though.

  5. Cathi says:

    I’m a great secret keeper but I do tell NY. :)
    Although, when my daughter was in high school her friends would say, “I have to tell you something but you have to promise not to tell anyone.”
    She would reply, “I tell my mom everything and if she thinks your mom should know she’ll tell her.”
    People would still tell her their secrets and there were some I went to the mothers with. LOL!

  13. Vicki says:

    The answer to this one is YES!!! I’m a firm believer that if you tell me something, you’re telling me because you want me to know. If you want someone else to know, you’ll tell them.

  14. Shannon (The Mommy-Files) says:

  15. Becca says:

    I actually have one friend who I tell almost everything to (my secrets and sometimes other peoples), but it hasn’t ever gone beyond him in the last 6 years so I think my secrets are safe with him!

  16. Jennifer @ It's A Beauty Filled Life says:

    Ugh. I am. And it hurts to keep them! I hate keeping secrets!!! By nature, I’m a blabber mouth, so whenever anyone asks me to keep a secret, I automatically tell them to stop saying anything! It’s too painful! LOL!

  19. kiki says:

    I still carry many secrets from childhood. I am a devoted person. You have something to tell me that is private, it stays private. To quote the old lady from the movie Titanic, “A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets.” Aloha and take care.

  20. Deb - Mom of 3 Girls says:

    Yes, I think so. I didn’t used to be – but nowadays I can keep a secret pretty well. Nobody’s complained that I haven’t, anyway. :)

  21. Michelle says:

    I am, but it’s extremely rare that someone confides in me. I just don’t invite confidences and I’m am not at all curious about other people’s private lives.

  28. Mika says:

    Secret keeping isn’t my specialty. I don’t gossip, but I tend to assume that others have the same burning curiosity as me and to underestimate exactly HOW secret a secret is supposed to be. Luckily, there aren’t many secrets to be had in my family, so I guess I manage alright!

    Hi Kailani,

    I put in the wrong link for Aloha Friday. I meant to put one about my giveaway. I am hesitant to put another one on so I was wondering if you could delete it? In any case, if you don’t have time, I understand. I’ll just leave it as is. Gees, my first one and I mess up.

  62. IE Mommy says:

    Yes, most definitely unless it has to do with health or breaking the law. Like when my nieces were younger. They are 7 years younger then me…I always told them that they could tell me anything but if they were doing some thing dangerous, illegal or immoral all bets were off. They definitely grew up respecting that. It helped my sisters to relax knowing I knew all the good inside scoop, lol
