Aloha Friday! #1

Here's a new meme I think I'll enjoy! I'm going to answer SEVERAL people's questions though b/c there are a couple "Aloha Fridays" in my reader!

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.

Today’s question is: What is your dream job?"

My dream job is to be a stay at home mommy! I don't want to have to work for ever.

Up next the question from "A Nut in a Nutshell"....

So, here's my question this week:Do you have a nickname? Maybe it followed you all the way from childhood or maybe it's something new, but if you have one, share it!

Yea, I have nicknames. Let's see as a child, I was called "Stevie". My family (not my sisters but my aunts, uncles, and cousins), my older adult friends (like my across the street neighbors, and people who've known me since I was little), and Ms. Moose at work all call me Stevie. My husband has never called me Stevie. I call MYSELF Stevie! That's REALLY who I am.

Tim calls me "My Lady" or "Miss Ninnie". There's no story to My Lady, but Miss Ninnie developed when we were first dating, and he would mis-spell my name in his e-mails: Stephaninie or Stephaninnie. So, we shortened it to Ninnie (pronounced Knee-Knee) and it stuck.

Melanie calls me "Willis" or "Stim". I have no idea where Willis is from, other than it's fun, cuz I call her Willis too! "Stim" is the first two lets of my name & the last two of Tim's & it's what she uses on her blog when she's referring to both of us.

And finally, the question from Bridgette at the "Not-So-Blog, Blog".

This week's question: If your blog could have a mascot, what would it be?

I'd have to say, my blog's mascot would be a purple teddy bear, dressed up like a teacher. Tim gave me a Build A Bear once for a birthday & he sits over looking my computer. He could be my bloggy mascot!

Awesome, now it's my turn!
This week's question:
What is your favorite thing to eat "out of season"?
Mine is snow cones. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Chocolate & Marshmallow Fluff sno cones. I eat them year round! It seems like I've been eating them a lot lately because they are a comfort food.

I love your nicknames and they have cute stories behind them!

Now your question...I like eating peppermint ice cream all year round! Most brands only sell it during Christmas season but I found that Meijer grocery stores sell it in their own store brand ice cream and it's delicious! I love it!

There really is no wrong time of year for ice cream. Granted with the subzero temperatures I am not going out to buy any.
