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.
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.
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.
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?
I don’t feel like I do too much shopping, but when I do, I feel guilty!
What are some of your guilty pleasures?
