Aloha!


Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they 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. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!


THIS WEEKS QUESTION:

When leaving the orthodontists office Thursday afternoon, I looked out the window and say a sign for a store called "Hey Cupcake". I said to Emily that we would go and check it out, it turned out to be a gourment cupcake shop which was very pricey. (1/2 dozen = $16.99)

Do you indulge in this type of luxury?

I have to say YES ... sonetimes I throw caution to the wind and splurge on something special! Like a Haag en Das ice-ream which is ridiculously expensive in SA!

Kim said...

Absolutely!

Stacie said...

I would have to say yes! There is a bagel place that I absolutely love and for a half dozen bagels and cream cheese it ends up costing over ten bucks. It's not something we do often but everyonce in a while it's nice to splurge. LOL

Not any more...

Occasionally I will splurge. Usually I refuse to spend that much, but some days call for it. :)

Kimberly Kihega said...

Sometimes!

AudreyO said...

Would I pay $2.50 for one cupcake? Yes I might buy my child one. Would I buy a dozen at that price? I can't imagine buying a dozen. But maybe over a year I could see my self buying one a month for that same dozen.

Shelly said...

I wish! I love cupcakes. But I haven't eaten any since I was teaching at school and the birthday kids would bring them around to each classroom. lol

Occasionally!

sues2u2 said...

On a very rare occasion I'll do something like that. So were they yummy?

The Blonde Diaries said...

I would probably try one cupcake once but there is no way I'd be able to make that a habit!

Sneaky Momma said...

Every now and then, ABSOLUTELY!
I'm not sure I would have bought a whole half dozen, though. Maybe just one for each of us if given the option. :)

Randi Troxell said...

every once in a while and only if it's totally worth it.. lol!

have a wonderful wkend!

Kristina P. said...

For cupcakes, I do!

♥georgie♥ said...

I am not a huge sweet eater so I prolly wouldnt spulrge on this BUT lipgloss and lotions and and and yes I have lol

SageMom said...

Very rarely, but we all deserve some indulgence every now and then!

Becca said...

I will indulge if it is something I really want..but I sure think about it for a sec at that price lol

wkiskizt said...

Holy Hannah that's a lot of money for some cupcakes. I'd buy one for myself if I were alone! My luxury at the moment is an amazing donut made by a local company, Dunford Bakers. They cost $1 apiece, which seems more than a normal donut, but these are NOT normal donuts. Plus, I can get them at Costco for $7.50/dozen...but then I have a dozen donuts!

Swoozie said...

Every now and then I will splurge on things like that.
Besides that, I remember my grandpa telling me once "If you don't splurge on yourself; Who will?!"

Words to live by; now go buy yourselves some cupcakes!! And have a great week-end!

Annie said...

Oh I wish! Nope. We are super thrifty around here and I feel guilty spending 50 cents on a grocery store donut LOL

Shop with Me Mama said...

Of course! Happy VGNO :)

Native American Momma said...

Only is my dad is paying haha just kidding. He does enjoy indulging like that so I will take him to share something like that and we take turns paying. I think it makes it more special if he is around. I do occasionally splurge with just me and Monkey or Mr. OCD too though, not often

Carolee / Home4ever said...

Depends on my mood! How badly do I need chocolate?

Have a Happy VGNO!

Kari said...

Not very often at all. When I do, my favorite place is Godiva Chocolate - their strawberry cheesecake chocolates are soooo good!

Happy VGNO! Happy Friday!

Kailani said...

I do. I have a sweet tooth and would pay pretty much anything for something that's worth it.

Gena said...

Yeah! Ollie and I spend to much on "sweet treats", but not all the time.

Happy VGNO!

Yaya said...

Ooooh! Yum Yum!

I don't indulge, but my boss sure does...so I sorta benefit from her indulging!

Smellyann said...

No way!! I would make my own, and they are awesome, I think. ;)

blueviolet said...

If I was on vacation or something, I might indulge in one. But NOT a dozen.

Mighty M said...

EXPENSIVE!! I probably wouldn't. However if the shop was nearby and I had extremely easy access then it would be tougher to resist!
