Guilty Pleasures Listicle

  1. HGTV - Back in 2001 in addition to the very basic cable channels 2-13 I also got HGTV. When I was writing my dissertation I had to cancel my cable. Since we can't afford to buy a house in San Francisco this is how I manage my deep desire for home ownership.
  2. Wine - A really good Pinot Noir is such a beautiful thing. So is a really mineral-ly new world Sauvignon Blanc. Don't even get me started on champagne, proseco and cremant.
  3. Coffee - I'm a purist: brewed coffee with cream only for me. The one exception is an egg nog latte (made with half skim milk). The season for them is nearly upon us. Such a shame that I'm off caffeine now.
  4. Dessert - One treat a day makes me really happy.
  5. Sleep - I would take a nap daily if I could. I would also sleep late daily if I could. I like sleep.
  6. Blogging - Even when I should be doing something else...
  7. Shoes - Cute shoes are my weakness.
  8. Target - a solo trip to Target is therapeutic for me.
  9. Running - I used to be a pretty decent runner. I wish I could find the time to do it again. I've tried everything, literally, with no success.
  10. Alone-time - I am an only child. I need a lot of alone time. I turn really crabby and crazy if I don't get it.

I personally find no guilt in Target, that is unless I'm filling my cart with insane amounts of things from the dollar spot. Then yes, guilt is a good word!
I love HGTV too, it's actually on right now as I type!

Hi! I'm Aitch said...

Great list, and I agree that there is nothing guilty about loving Target. Or coffee or wine for that matter ;)

I love Target too - by myself like you said! I don't enjoy it as much with my kids trying to get me to buy everything we see.

By the way, I need to come back and spend more time with your music player - I saw several things I like (Jenny Lewis, Feist, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Cat Power, Paul Simon) that make me think I might like some of the things I don't recognize by name.

Wow. You're number 10 just gave me a smack in the face. I've been so crabby lately. Ok, maybe for the past 6 years. Ok, maybe longer. Anyway..I'm an only child too. I'm constantly surrounded by either an OCD hubby, Insane teenagers, or adorably cute mischief maker (6yr old). I need your 10. I need alone time. I never really put that thought with the fact of me being an only child. Ha. Thanks for waking me up. I'll try to be less....stabby for now on.

A good glass of Pinot can cure almost any problem. Seriously.
