Meet Me On Monday 28th Edition


1.  What are your New Year's Eve plans?
We usually watch the big ball at Times Square in New York (on t.v.). Along with that we have sparkling cider, crackers and meat (pepperoni, salami, etc). However as I age it's getting harder to stay awake for all the hoopla.

2.  How tall are you?
I am somewhere between 5'6" and 5'7" depending on whose measuring me :)

3.  What is your favorite pudding flavor?
It depends on my mood. It's either chocolate or vanilla.

4.  What room of the house do you blog the most in?
We have a big living room and my computer sits in a corner, by a window. So that's where I do my blogging.

5.  What is your best physical feature?
I really don't know. Maybe my eyes.

I enjoy getting to know new bloggers and what better way than a meme where I can do just that.

Aloha Friday

Welcome to Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend.So I thought I would join Kailani and others, this week and ask my readers a simple question of my own.
Remember each participant has different questions. It's a great way to meet others and make new friends.
So after you answer my question be sure to hop on over to An Island Life for more.

My question is: Do you do a traditional Christmas day by staying at home with family and maybe some friends
or something out of the ordinary like go to the beach?
