In Hawaii, Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend….and my friend Kailani at An Island Life hosts Aloha Friday for bloggers!
I’ll ask a question….something that doesn’t require a lengthy answer….and you leave a comment. Then you can go out and meet some new blogging friends and/or participate in Aloha Friday at An Island Life too!
In Honor of This Weekend….
I’ll admit it…..it’s really sad…..true confession here…….
I haven’t seen any of the nominated movies for Best Picture. You know, the Oscars. It’s not really a surprise, you moms will understand (I hope)….there’s just not that much time in a day, a week, a month. But for fun, I decided to see who was nominated, so I can try to see the movie at some point. Maybe when my daughter turns 10!
