Guilty Pleasures

Victoria from vmac+cheese shared her guily pleasures a while back, and I thought it was so much fun, so I decided to share mine with you today! Hope you enjoy!

1. I am going to start off with the most embarrassing one first... Watching hillybilly man shows with Spencer. Never in a million years did I think I would enjoy this crap. But I think I've been overexposed, because now "Deadliest Catch", "Gold Rush"and "Swamp Loggers" are shows I genuinely enjoy (most of the time).

2. A big heaping bowl of pasta with parm and olive oil might be my favorite thing in the world.
3. Forcing my dog to cuddle with me, even though I am not sure he ever likes it.
4. Waking up early, and then laying in bed for hours.
5. Making an unhealthy breakfast an excuse to eat badly all day.

6.  Not making my bed nearly as often as I should
7. Air conditioning all four seasons. I keep a very very chilly house. Blankets are a necessity in every room. A little wasteful? Yes. Perfect for sleeping? YES.
8. Eating pizza way too often... now it is ordered cheese-less. #depressed (yes, I used a hashtag like a normal conversational thing)
9. Shopping a lot more often than I should. Or really anyone should.

10. Loving summer but hoping for fall.
11. Dreaming about the next house that I will live in... after only two years in my current condo.
12. Watching movies in my own house, I despise the movie theater. And even then, I only watch movies that make me happy. I am emotional enough without movies that break my heart or scare the crap out of me.
13. Going out for dinner. There are sooo many amazing places in Chicago and I have so many favorites!
14. Having a cleaning lady twice a month, it is the ultimate luxury for me! Worth every penny.

15. Connected with #12, watching Elf and Love Actually as many times as humanly possible
16. And now connected to the above... loving Christmas-time more than any other thing EVER, but... still being Jewish.
17. Desperately wanting another dog even though I know we don't really have the space for it.

18. Texting an abnormal amount. It just soooo much better than talking on the phone.
19. Lighting a fire the second there is even a hint of chill in the air.
20. Making myself a priority. This might be a controversial one. But I think its the most important. You can only take care of other people once you've taken care of yourself. Its definitely hard not to feel guilty for it though.

What are some of your guilty pleasures?

  3. Love this! I can totally relate to eating a bad breakfast, and then pigging out all day. Love Actually and Elf are the best. I chose Deadliest Catch over Sex and the City the other night #wtf. Carbs are my first love.

    Such a fun post!!

  6. Great list. Could not agree more especially about the shopping too much, I have a problem or so my hubby says!

  7. Ahh #1 made me laugh out loud! I haven't seen Swamp Loggers yet, but my brother definitely got me hooked on Swamp People...it's just way too fascinating. Glad I'm not the only one with this random TV habit :)

  8. Such a fun post and list! Completely agree- cleaning ladies are worth EVERY PENNY. I may have to get a rec from you since mine stayed in Dallas and I'm the new cleaning lady around here...boo. Have you already posted a list somewhere of your favorite Chicago restaurants? I always feel so overwhelmed when choosing a restaurant here.

  10. Love this! As I was reading other comments, I'm with {sixtwelveplace} - always overwhelmed when it comes to choosing a restaurant. I look to the other Chicago bloggers for suggestions since I'm new to the city!

  11. Love the list! I could eat pizza everyday and Love Actually just puts me in the Christmas spirit! LOVE! Trying to convince the husband that we need a cleaning lady - I really think it would be a good investment! ;)

  21. Yay!! I'm so glad you did this too!! I'm all about #15 too. And as for #20, NEVER feel guilty about that one. Ever ever ever.

  23. So cute! I'm on board with almost all of them, except movie theaters - I love going to the movies, but maybe because it's a luxury I don't get to take advantage nearly enough anymore. That and my family always went to movies.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You just reminded me to find a good cleaning lady! I truly hate the movie theater and I eat pizza way too much! It's a seriously addiction.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love this, I should add #3 and #13 to my list. I saw Vmac + Cheese's list and was so inspired I posted my Guilty Pleasures too {http://rnlmusings.blogspot.com/2011/09/guilty-pleasures.html} !

    ReplyDelete
  26. I hear you on #12! My husband makes fun of me because I refuse to watch movies that look scary or too sad and I don't want to give up my good mood.

    And you totally need another dog to engage in forced cuddling. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. yes- this is awesome! i kinda, maybe want to copy you... :)

    my guilt pleasures may or may not include celebrity gossip/stalking, working towards a life long goal of "12 up/12 down" for my sleep schedule, and never, ever, ever working out... but walking everywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOVE this post. Reminds me of Glamour's "It's OK if..." I also eat way too much pizza and watch Love Actually constantly year-round :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. i totally started compiling a list after victoria's post! love this - especially jealous of the cleaning lady twice a month. once a month would even do just fine. quarterly even!? i might be giving in to this now....

    ReplyDelete
  30. Your scaring me...we are guilty pleasure twins!!! From the ac, the shopping, your movie preferences to not wanting to go to the actual movies...freaky!
    and...I'm Jewish, but now due to marriage I celebrate X-mas..I'll say this, be careful what you wish for, cause three kids later, its SO MUCH WORK! Chanukah was a cake walk compared to this holiday!:)

  33. I thought I was the only person in the world who watched Swamp Loggers! haha you HAVE to try Swamp People (the same, but different) AND if you haven't yet, "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" is kind of amazing. :)
