Aloha Friday: Dreaming Of A Rich Christmas

It’s time for another Aloha Friday, the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend, in Hawaii and blog land anyway. As you should know by now, over at An Island Life, Kailani decided that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting and 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 at An Island Life’s blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Alright, so far this month I’ve asked you about Christmas movies, Christmas music and what gifts you are looking forward to giving this Christmas. But now with my birthday only FIVE days away (Christmas Eve) I’m feeling a bit less selfless today you could say – I think now’s the time to talk about the getting. And since most of us moms probably aren’t expecting to get the creme de la creme of Christmas gifts (am I the only one who expects to be a bit jipped what with the economy and all – I focused on getting my son and husband happy but didn’t specifically ask for anything myself for Christmas or my birthday – because, well, the things I want, I know nobody else could afford either. I’m sure I’ll get some yummy candy, maybe a sweater and a calendar – and hopefully some gift cards – love those) but for today, let’s dream a bit, shall we? Of White Christmases with Very Rich Santa Clauses who fill our stockings and put presents under our tree FOR US – and then hands us the plate of cookies that we slaved over, and says with a twinkle in his eye, “Mother, I’m sure you deserve these more than I do!” And after he rinses the dishes and puts them in the dishwasher with care, he’ll fly off in his sleigh into the night and call, “Merry Christmas Mrs. Mother, don’t forget the lights!” Or maybe he’ll turn those off for us, too, I haven’t decided. But I’m getting slightly off topic so I’ll go ahead and jump to my question now:

If you could ask for anything for Christmas, money and time are no object, Santa is stinking filthy rich and LOVES you because you’ve been VERY good this year – what would you ask for?

I’m trying to decide between a new car or a house!

How about you?

It sounds a bit dramatic, but I have two things. One, I wish for my husband to receive the two (or just one) scholarships that he applied for. Ultimately, that would help us with #2… to adopt a child. What am I thinking you said any amount…. I want 5 kids and a bedroom for each one of them on a ranch in Idaho/Montana where I am running my very successful B&B. 😀 😀 😀

That’s more like it! Thanks for letting me think big if only for a minute.

Most important…I wish for good health and safety as we travel.

Have a great weekend. I welcome you to stop by my blog and enter 2
gift-a-ways….”giftaways” are the new giveaways…like 40 is the new 30. 😀


@ Sues2u2 : I just posted a link to – not a specific house – lol – I wouldn’t turn down a million dollar house persay (who am I kidding, I so would just because of taxes) but yeah lol – and the CRV – oh I love it. I’ve even test driven one and gah. We don’t need a mini van quite yet -I’d be quite happy with this.


I just looked @ your links to the car & house & while the car somewhat surprised me (very cute but no minivan?) the house had me roflol!! All of the ones that came up where like super millions! I want one of those too but I also want the staff to run it & the money to keep it!


Cash Please! Enough to pay off my house and build a new one. Pay off all our other bills and buy two new cars. With enough left over to play with and save.

Thanks Santa!


Lets see, since I have been really good this year…

-My pink living room walls painted a nice cream color.

-New kitchen table and chairs

-A bread machine and maybe a Kitchen Aid mixer as my little one could be a back up. Not that I’d need a backup, I’m just sayin.

-A new top of the line washer and dryer with the steam function.

-Since I think Santa’s feeling really generous, to fix the “batmobile” to perfect working condition for the hubs. He loves his batmobile but the repairs on it are killing us. He wouldn’t want a new car, he wants his bat mobile.

Thanks Santa for washing up the dishes!


The money to pay my mother back for everything she has done for me since my children were born.
Baby Sitting Three Kids 5 days a week for free
Paying my Bills Whenever I couldn’t
Driving me around whenever my car broke down(happens alot)
And lots lots more.
