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/statement is:

Name on thing that made you smile today.

    I smiled when I read all the sweet comments on my post about losing 100 pounds! :)

    I love how my son, a grown up 9yo, continued to come back to my room and snuggle and kiss on me. He’s NOT looking forward to going back to school.

    My 10 yr old son singing along with my CD, singing the Journey songs such as “Don’t Stop Believing” and “Faithfully” :)

    Oh, my . . . a lot of things made me smirk and roll my eyes today. In my profession, that happens a LOT. I see a lot of stuff that makes me say, “And what the hell were you thinking when you did THAT?”

    About the only thing that truly made me smile was coming home at the end of it and being met at the door by my dogs (Queen Sophia and Buddy-kins) — tails wagging, putting their little paws up on my knees happily begging for some love. Of course, I know that they were just checking me out to see if I brought them food, but I delude myself into believing they are happy to see me.

    Ditto my kids who waved & mouthed “Hi, Mom” from their respective spots on the couches in the family room where they had another strenuous summer afternoon in the air conditioned home that I went to work today to provide for them. Not to mention the food in the refrigerator that they were raiding periodically whilst I was out smirking and rolling my eyes . . .

    Such is the life of a working mother!

    wait.. you didn’t tell us one thing that made you smile today =D

    a lot of things made me smile today. but what made not only my lips smile, but my heart, too, was my son asking me to help him pick out a promise ring for his girlfriend. (shhh.. it’s a secret)

    Chasing a half-naked toddler through the house, trying to convince her that her shirt wasn’t evil. ;)

    I smiled that I get to call Hawaii my home now. In fact, I’ve been smiling about it all week, since we returned from our vacation in our former home state of California. It’s like I’m under some kind of happy spell.

    At 5:30am, a cup of coffee! I am sure the next smile will be greeting my daughter when I get her out of the crib! Stop by my Aloha Friday to have a slight continuation from a past one!

    Watching my husband sleep!! Watching my husband is one of my favorite things.

    It is still really early here, but I smiled when I realized my son slept all night. The last two nights he had nightmares and terrors. Of course the other little guy was up, but what can you do?

    Have a great weekend :)

    My son! He’s just so sweet when he wakes up in the morning (and all day, come to think of it!).

  19. 19

    I smiled when my 5 year-old daughter got really excited about her watch, and her “credit card.”

  20. 20

    My son mastered the forward roll. He’s been doing it for awhile but he wasn’t tucking his head in so I was freaking out at the thought he might injure himself. Today he did it and the roll was perfect, and safe!

    He was also showing me his break dancing moves or “flips” as he likes to call them and that made me laugh.

    My 4yo sharing with his 1yo baby brother. :) So sweet.

    I’m also smiling because when the 1yo naps, my 4yo & I are going to make homemade apple muffins. I love when he helps me bake!

    Have a great Friday!

    my sweeper imposed a mandatory break upon me and I smiled, though not sure if it was from insantiy or the fact that I really needed a break lol

    My young chickens. I awoke to hurry to see who it was crowing. I have another rooster to let go off. They sound like teenage boys when their voice cracks. very funny then to turn to see my husbands peaceful face upon his pillow. Nice start to my early morning.
    Also my children are excited about going to school, I am so glad they are looking forward to it.

    No one is up at my house yet, no Tv has come on, so it is lame, but the only thing that has made me smile so far this morning is comments on my blog, lol.
    Tonight there will be lots of smiling, though, because it is Ladies Night!

    It’s a little early in the morning for me so not much has happened yet. I think I smiled while listening to a podcast this morning. Here’s to more smiles later in the day : )

    Writing the story on my blog of my co-working nearly swallowing a grasshopper.
    Makes me smile right now, too!

    Many thanks for getting some time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and adore understanding much more with this topic. If doable, as you acquire expertise, can you mind updating your blog with far more info? It’s extremely helpful to me
