Should I feel guilty?

April 2, 2012

Monday, my new favorite blogging day… I get to think up a list and share it and see what others come up with thanks to Stasha at The Good Life… they call her the list master and that, my friends, she is!!! πŸ™‚

This weeks topic was thought up by Miss Marina Star. She wants to know what our 10 guilty pleasures are.

My 10 guilty (or not so guilty) pleasures in no particular order:

1. The Twilight Saga… I have all the books, read them numerous times and also own all 4 DVDs and watch the movies over and over again. I love all things vampire and this little saga has sucked me in. Didn’t think it was possible, but here I am… Β a Twihard!

2. Robert Pattinson… Yes, I know, I am a married mother of 3 in my thirties… but the eyes, the accent, that smile… I can’t help myself.

3. Twizzlers, the strawberry kind… they go hand in hand with watching Twilight movies… between my daughter and I, we demolish a family size pack during the course of the movie.

4. Frozen yogurt with hot fudge sauce… mmmhhhh, yum. Most Sundays we have lunch with hubby’s grandma and her club has the most awesome buffet… after sticking to salad for my main meal I go straight for the frozen yogurt machine and the hot fudge sauce for dessert.

5. Milka chocolate… it’s German chocolate at it’s finest. I love the milk chocolate and the chopped hazelnut. I cannot resist buying a bar or two whenever I see it at our local Target.

6. Ritz cracker sandwiches with Nutella and peanut butter… I tell myself it’s a healthy snack because of the peanut butter and whole wheat crackers but who am I kidding… Nutella is basically spreadable chocolate.

7. My daily Chai Latte… I am so in love with this wondrous drink that I looked up ways to make frothy milk without a frother!!!

8. The Real Housewifes of Orange County/ Beverly Hills… I don’t watch it a lot or regularly but when I have a chance to see it I get sucked right into the world of cattiness and plastic!

9. Bread/Pasta… I try to eat mostly whole wheat or whole grain and I do like it but I cannot resist a good garlic orΒ ItalianΒ bread or a big bowl of pasta.

10. Soaking in a bubble bath and reading a good book… my sanity saver. I put the kids to bed, grab my book dejour, put on some music and relax. I can sit in the tub until the water grows cold and I look like a dried up prune. Bliss.


Do you think I should feel guilty about my guilty pleasures? Some of it I need for sanity’s sake!!! πŸ™‚

    First of all we love having you!! Before I forget: I think you owe us a post on how to froth milk without the gadgets! My milk frother fell of my espresso machine. Saddest day ever.
    I LOVE MILKA! Glad Target stocks it.

      I will find the froth article and send you the link. And what a great idea to make it into a post and show you how I adapted it for my needs. It’s amazing how reliant we are on certain gadgets, isn’t it? And Target got huge props for carrying Milka. πŸ™‚

    I’ve finally moved on from my Twilight-obsessed days, but I was definitely there for quite awhile. And I felt like you mentioned – I’m a 3–something mom of 3, and I’m obsessed with these books (and Robert Pattinson). I really enjoyed those days actually.

    #10 is my absolute favorite guilty pleasure, too!

    • Susi April 2, 2012 at 4:43 pm

      I’ve calmed down a bit and I’m by no means one of those people that collects everything Twilight related… I’m just a big fan. And without my bubble baths I would be lost! πŸ™‚

    This is such a great list. I have not read or seen any Twilight but I do love the Real Housewives or Beverly Hills – total guilty pleasure. Lattes and any good chocolate are truly a sanity must, I think we should stop feeling guilty about those.

    • Susi April 2, 2012 at 4:39 pm

      I think, you either like Twilight or you don’t. I didn’t care about it one way or another until we got Netflix… long story. And i totally agree with you… we should stop feeling guilty about chocolate and lattes!!! πŸ™‚ On that note… one Chai Latte coming up!. πŸ™‚

  • Yoli April 2, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Umm….. Chi Latte…. I like Real Housewives too! LOL

    • Susi April 2, 2012 at 11:20 pm

      I think, we “normal” housewives just can’t help ourselves when we see all that falseness and plastic!!!!

    I am so a Beverly Hills House Wife person. And fresh warm bread (with butter) over sweets. I love it.

    • Susi April 2, 2012 at 11:19 pm

      It’s hard not to watch the train wreck that they are… Yes, warm bread and butter is the best!!! πŸ™‚

  • Kate F. April 2, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Totally love the Twilight Saga – definitely one of my guilty pleasures πŸ˜‰

    • Susi April 2, 2012 at 11:18 pm

      Ooooh, another Twihard. Do you know one of the reasons I went to see The Hunger Games was so that I could see the sneak peek for Breaking Dawn Part 2!!! πŸ™‚

    You know that my husband has that accent and scruffy brit look πŸ˜‰

    • Susi April 3, 2012 at 1:52 pm

      Lucky you!!! πŸ˜‰

    Hm, that Chai milk stuff sounds good… share a recipe! What’s in it?

    I really don’t know if I could come up with 10 pleasures…. oh that is terrible. I think I work too hard! I will have to work on it. LOL.

    • Susi April 3, 2012 at 1:49 pm

      Share I shall… I have to find the recipe again…It’s basically Chai tea with milk that’s been frothed. Delish. You really need to work on not working so hard!!! πŸ™‚

    My Mom is a Twi hard too. don’t get it but…
    What isn’t better with hot fudge? Unless maybe it’s hot fudge and caramel.
    My favourite chocolate are those melt in your mouth Zero bars. Hard to find these days.
    A long soak after a hard day is bliss, no guilt there. Add a good book, a beer by the tub and I may never come out of the bath room.

    • Susi April 8, 2012 at 10:52 pm

      You either get it or you don’t. It’s one of those things… πŸ™‚ Yes, I blissfully sink into a hot bubble bath after a long day… without too much guilt!!!
