Aloha Friday!



An Island Life is hosting Aloha Friday.. I thought it would be fun to participate. All you have to do is answer the question I ask by leaving a comment. Then click over to An Island Life and link up to Aloha Friday with your own question!

My Question this week:

Do you do the grocery shopping alone or is it a family affair?

My husband and I have always gone shopping together. We enjoy being together. We both love to cook so it's kinda of fun to see what we come up with. However, now with kids.. lol He takes one with a cart and I take the other (usually my son).. and we meet back in the middle and take inventory hoping we haven't gotten doubles (which happens a lot) lol

If we have the granddaughter that day, it is a family affair. I go along to entertain the little one. :)

I loathe shopping of any kind. Well, I take that back, I like shopping online.
My husband has PT three times a week for an injury sustained in a terrorist bombing. Because he's out and about he stops and does our grocery shopping. He enjoys it and I enjoy him doing it. We make a list together and yes, I go sometimes too.

It depends!!! Very rarely am I alone! USUALLY I either take my son, or if hubby is home, he comes too!

Normally we get up on Sunday mornings and after breakfast and some coffee for Mommy, we all go to Walmart to get everything we need, not just food. Hopefully we can make this trip as tiring as possible so Little B. will take a nap as soon as things are put away, and then Mom and Papa can relax.

I prefer to go with just my hubby but there are times the kids must come along. It always gets hectic though. We end up getting a lot of stuff that is not on the list, forget to use most of the coupons, and sometimes forget to get the stuff we came to get in the first place.

I always attempt to grocery shop alone for two reasons.

1) It's alone time for me!

2) If i bring along the husband or the children I always end up spending more money than I should.

Happy Friday!

After finally getting my daughter to school full time I find that I enjoy shopping alone. Hubby isn't a big fan & besides when he & the kiddos are w/ me I find I spend Tons more $$!

Kate said...

My hubby does the majority of the grocery shopping and one of the kids goes with him.

Tiffany said...

I typically go alone. My husband will come if I ask, but I know he does not really like to. Plus, it is easier to go on my day off than to try to fight the crowds at night.

AJ said...

Me and Hubs normally do this together and get lunch or dinner before or afterwards. Going with the kids is just to hectic for me. I'll do it if I have to to though.

Nina said...

We always go shopping together. I like the help with the kids and then everyone gets what they want. Of course when I go alone my bill is a lot cheaper.

Momstart said...

We do both, most of the time I do it with the kids but sometimes dad comes too, depends on work.

Allison said...

My favorite time to grocery shop is in the morning when everyone is at work. I only have the baby at that time and my hubby is home to watch her! I love shopping alone, so I can take my time and really concentrate. I haven't been able to do this in a long time, so the kids have been coming... not fun LOL!

The Farmer Files said...

It goes both ways. Usually I go on Awana nights alone. Any other time we go together! We both really enjoy going to Costco together!!!

Tena said...

I prefer to do it alone, or a lot of times I go with my mama! It because too much of an ordeal if Dh and the boys come, and I always end up spending a lot more money!
Great question!!

Over the summer the kids and I go together, but during the school year my husband and I take turns going after work by ourselves.

HeatherY said...

It is usually me and the 2 year old. Every once and awhile the huz comes with us, but that usually ends up costing so much more!

TheAngelForever said...

Hubby and I usually make a menu for the week, break down what we need at the store and head there together during the weekend. Of course there are times that we need something during the week that either of us will run to get alone.

Have a great weekend!

Jennifer said...

It is a family affair... sorta. Grandma, my kids and I all go together. Next week I might actually be going with my sister instead and all of the kids. I wouldn't ever want to go with my hubby. He gets too impatient. It takes a while to get your plan together with the coupons.

Scott and Beth said...

Scott and I do pretty much everything together. We always go shopping together. We just enjoy it!

A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
