Aloha Friday #3

Welcome to Aloha Friday! It's a weekly blog event that started at An Island Life where I ask a simple question, answer it, then invite you to answer it also! 

It was just Valentine's Day and I saw a lot of mixed reactions to the holiday on my Facebook page. Some giddily posted pictures of bouquets of flowers and red velvet cupcakes, others had romantic stories and declared how "amazing" their significant other was. Of course there were those who were completely nonplussed, some seemed to ignore it and others complained about Valentine's Day being a consumer driven holiday based on nothing. So this week's question is: How do you feel about Valentine's Day?

My answer: Mr. Eight is still on the mainland for training. Although we talk most days online we, unfortunately, did not get to talk on Valentine's Day. I'm normally not very big on the holiday, although the cheap candy the day after is nice! In the past we had ordered heart shaped pizzas from Papa Johns. I thought of ordering him one online this year to have delivered to him but I didn't know when he would be home (he works odd hours). As it turns out, he was going to do the same thing for me but didn't know if I was home either! Valentine's Fail! 

The kids and I did go to a small playdate a few days before though and made cards for our family.  I didn't make it to the post office until the 15th though... but it's the thought that counts!

Look here for more Aloha Friday!


  1. We have a love/hate relationship with Valentine's Day - both hubby and I agree it's a hyped up Hallmark holiday. We do exchange small gifts and order dinner in, but don't make a big deal out of it.

    At least you and your hubby thought about the heart-shaped's the thought that counts, right? :)

    What's Your Poison?

  2. I could take it or leave it. It's fun but not something we go all out for.
