Aloha Friday #52

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 your special talent?

    I have a lot of things I enjoy doing, but nothing I that I do, can I call exceptional! lol I am a work in progress! (crochet, baking, cake decorating)

    My special talent…hrm…I’ve been told I have double joined elbows, but since I can’t see the back of my elbows I can’t confirm. I’d say it’s my ability to stay up for ungodly amounts of time and still have enough brainpower to function =P.

  3. 3

    I don’t really have any special talent but when I was younger, I loved joining art contests in school. I won several medals and certificates.

  4. 4

    I can teach. That is my special talent.

  5. 5

    Hmm, I don’t really know if I have one. I can write with both hands – is that a talent? And I guess I’ve been told by quite a lot of people that I’m good at breaking things down and explaining them in a way that’s easy to understand and remember. :)

    I have the same special talent other mom’s have.. I can grow babies, and do a million things at once! Other than that, I am pretty average!

  7. 7

    Can we call blogging a talent? :) I would like to say that would mine ;)

    “office organization” is that a talent? maybe…

    Well, I’m a “glass half full” kinda gal, however if it’s a tangible talent, it would be sewing. I most often see something and rather than buy it I go home and make it.

    Special talent, probably a quick learner on almost anything. Stop by my Aloha Friday for a seasonal question.

    I’m so glad you asked. I can turn my eyelids inside out. Especially popular around Halloween.

    Hmmm… this is a toughie. I’m not so sure I have a ‘special talent’. I have a pretty good eye for decorating, though. :)

  13. 13

    Not anything interesting, by any means. All I can do is raise one eyebrow, leaving the other one down. I can do it on both sides.

    Like I said, not very interesting….

    I’m pretty good with a camera and enjoy taking pictures. Other than that, I don’t feel like I have one area that I really excel in.

    My special talent is dance. I have been dancing since I was 2 years old and I am now a dance Instructor.

    Sheila says:

    Juggeling the budget to get all the bills paid every month. If that’s not a special talent, I don’t know what is! LOL

    Kelly says:

    i like to think of myself as a half decent amateur photographer.

    Jamie says:

    I really don’t have a special talent. Never played any sports, or anything. Dont draw. Not creative, so I cant write that well. LOL.

  20. 20

    I almost said nothing but I do make amazingly good cookies. Like they always come out good. It’s weird, but delicious.

    Nina says:

    I don’t think I have a talent but I do graphic design for my work using all the fun computer software tools. I would like to think I have gotten pretty good at this over the years.

  22. 22

    My “special” talent is being able to wear all the many hats a mom wears and still managing to sport a smile.
    (on a good day, that is) ;)

  23. 23

    This is my first “go” at Aloha Friday – what a great way to end the week :)

    My special talent is drawing. I can pretty my draw anything and actually had a portrait business pre-babies. I miss it.


  24. 24

    i used to play the piano pretty well but i haven’t played in years so i would no longer consider it a talent.

    i have gifts and abilities, but, at the moment, no special talents.

  25. 25

    My special talent is to make something out of nothing!

    My special talent has gotta be my ability to juggle a bunch of activities in one day. Just Wednesday we had a class in the morning, went grocery shopping, cooked a sit down dinner for the family, took DD to confirmation and I went out with my friends. Today will be a bit slower with only a field trip and then Girl Scouts…need a dinner plan though!

    Haha; my special talent is jumping to conclusions.. Doesn’t really help me out all that much but I seem to be abnormally good at it!

  30. 30

    I wasn’t sure I had one, but hubby says it’s my ability to create a cozy, easy to use home amidst the chaos we call life. What a sweetie he was when I asked him what he thought it was. I think I’ll keep him.

    People come to me for layouting of invitations, similar stuff.

    My wife used to think I was good in bed ;)

    I guess that’s what happens after she had our child.

    hmmm my special talent is unmentionable, but my hubby calls me hoover.

  39. 39

    Well, I’ve been told I’m an excellent writer and communicator. Oh, and someone once mentioned that I can sing a bit. *wink*
