Guilty Pleasures

Everyone has a guilty pleasure (and no this is not meant to be nasty, so get your mind out of the gutter). According to Wikipedia, a guilty pleasure means "something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it." 


Well I have a few of those:


Real Housewives of ... anything
My two favs right now are the Atlanta and Beverly Hills seasons, mainly because they are the only ones currently on. These women live in mega-mansions, wear Louboutins, eat at five star restaurants and always seem to find something to complain about. They fight and make up only to bash each other during the interviews, need I remind you the other person will eventually watch the show. So before you judge me for being shallow, I really just love these shows because they involve no thinking what-so-ever and that is all I need after a long day at work.  
I saw Ne-Ne in Phipps and Cynthia Bailey at an event but no other Housewife sightings on the ATL front

And you wonder why plastic surgeons are so rich, because they have worked on every 6 out of 6 women in Beverly Hills


Diet Coke
Some people can tell me they love water... "It tastes so good." Well you are just plain lying to yourself because it has NO taste at all. I have been trying to drink a lot more water, and I am doing better... but I love Diet Coke. There is no nutritional value but it tastes so good. I will have serious Diet Coke cravings and I will give in, I don't believe in deprivation. There is no comparison to an ice cold Diet Coke :)


Magazines
I love me some magazines. If you ever lived with me or know me good enough, then you know I can't live without magazines. Trashy celebrity spreads, home decor pages or food recipe mags can keep me busy for hours on end. Yes the subscriptions add up but what else can fulfill my attention for a full hour and not make me bored (and I get bored VERY easily).


Chocolate Covered Strawberries
I love any kind of desserts, but especially chocolate covered strawberries. Maybe it is because I tell myself there is some healthy fruit underneath all that chocolate. Or maybe it is because Aaron has made them for me every Valentine's Day for the past four years (hint, hint). Whatever the reason, I eat them even if I happen to be on the "diet of the month" because they are so dang good.


Fresh Flowers
We are in super savings mode to save up for our first house but I can't pass up fresh flowers. There is something about fresh flowers that brightens up a room and just makes me feel so much better. Yes, I feel a little guilty about buying them but I LOVE flowers and there is just no other comparison. (Tulips have hit the supermarkets already; bought a bouquet today)


Love,
