My completely adorable and totally delicious Snowman cookie from Starbucks
We all have them. Before we're married, they're our "super secret single behaviors," and now, it's what I grab and eat in the pantry so I don't have to share. What are your guilty pleasures? I thought I would share a few of mine today.
No surprise here, especially if you follow me on Instagram. If I'm even near a Starbucks, you better believe I'm driving through it. And during the holidays, I am especially fond of that cute little snowman cookie-friend shown above, or cranberry bliss bars. YUM.
Sex & the City Reruns
When Grayson and Bennett were teeny tiny babies and I was still getting up in the middle of the night with them, I would DVR SATC reruns to watch at night. Now, I don't think there's one I haven't seen, and I will still watch them, and especially love the marathons on the style network. That show never gets old. And reminds me of having a newborn. :)
I can hardly buy a bag of these deliciously onion-flavored snacks of joy because I will eat the WHOLE THING. In one sitting. So I save them for road trips, and no, I don't share.
Drug Store Lipstick
Back in college when I worked at the Lancome counter, I had such nice, fancy makeup, since it was all practically free. Nowadays, I'm not frequenting the department store makeup counters like I once was, but instead walking the aisles of my local Target and Walgreens, testing lipglosses on the back of my hand. :) I am a sucker for a new lipstick, and love it when I allow myself the $6 splurge to get a new shade. :)
Curious George Gummies
Funny (sad?) that most of my guilty pleasures are food and drink related! But, I seriously love the cheap 10 for $10 Curious George/Sharks/Snoopy Fruit Snacks that we get the kids at the store. I will steal two bags and have a nice sweet snack when the kids aren't looking.
Playing Hair Salon
Brantley especially loves to play "Hair Salon." I have to sit or lay down in front of her, and she asks if I want my hair long or short, and she'll brush my hair, massage my head, etc. And it's FANTASTIC. When they want me to play with them, I am always suggesting that we play hair salon, just so I can get a break and sit down and get my hair brushed and a little massage! They think it's so much fun to "do my hair," and I get a little stress reliever in the process! Win-win!
US Weekly and People Magazines
I hardly ever get a chance to read magazines anymore, but when I do, I want some trash. Of course, I know so little about what's going on outside Daniel Tiger and Dora right now, so I don't even know half the celebrities in the magazines, but it's such a escape from reality, and a welcome break!
So join in the fun. What are your guilty pleasures?
