10 Of My Guilty Pleasures

Thursday, April 19, 2018



Today I’m joining in with some of my favorite bloggers to talk about guilty pleasures. So what exactly is a guilty pleasure? It’s something you enjoy, but feel guilty for doing so. Not just a regular pleasure, and not just something that makes you feel guilty. It has to be both. Here are some of mine.

1. TV

I feel like I watch a lot of TV, between what is regularly on each week and binge watching. I always need to have something to binge watch because when I want a break or have extra time, I like to hit play on the next episode of whatever I’m watching.

2. Phone Games

And while I watch TV, I play games on my phone. For awhile it’s been Candy Crush, and I try to beat my current level whenever I’m bored. I also play Cross-Stitch World. It’s so relaxing. But I know it takes up too much time.

3. Food

I eat too many things that aren’t good for me. Like Starbucks drinks and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I can’t stop!

4. Social Media

I don’t feel guilty for scrolling through Facebook or Instagram once in awhile because I don’t do it all that often. But Tumblr? That’s a habit I’d like to kick.

5. Procrastinating

I often think about all the things I need to do and then convince myself they can wait.

6. Traveling On My Own

About once a year for the past few years, I’ve gotten to go away on my own. The first few times weren’t for good reasons – when my grandmother was sick and then for her funeral and when my dad had surgery – but after that, it’s been to hang out with my friend. I love it and I feel bad about it.

7. When Someone Else Drives My Kids To / From School

I love it and I can’t live without it, but I feel bad about it?? I mean, I take my turn and everything! But our friend works at the school and drives my kids (almost) every morning and I shouldn’t take that for granted.

8. When The Kids Are At School

I feel guilty for enjoying the silence. And for being a stay-at-home-mom in general.

9. Having Cleaning Help

I should be able to clean my house myself, right?

10. Shopping

I don’t feel like I do too much shopping, but when I do, I feel guilty!

What are some of your guilty pleasures?
