Because Prompts are Fun: 20 of My Guilty Pleasures

guilty pleasures
Being a mom I am teeming with guilt: mom guilt, wife guilt, education guilt, food guilt… It never ends!

Heck, yesterday evening I was supposed to leave hubs with the kids for a couple hours while I checked out a local girls night out event. I was looking forward to it but decided at the last minute not to go. If just didn’t sound fun enough to justify the guilt about wanting to get away and actually getting away.

I have plenty of guilty pleasures though! Guilty pleasures are things I enjoy but either should not or am embarrassed to admit…so here we go!

My 20 Guilty Pleasures

  1. Snickers peanut butter squares
  2. Movie theater popcorn with extra butter
  3. A Solly’s burger(it’s a Milwaukee thing)
  4. Nickelback (and other “light rock”)
  5. Hair metal
  6. Tosh.O
  7. Reading Facebook drama and comments on The Stir
  8. Reading trashy romance novels (the explicitly descriptive kind)
  9. Wearing socks with sandals
  10. Hollywood Treasure
  11. Storage Wars
  12. Romantic comedies
  13. Scalp massages at the salon
  14. 90s sitcoms
  15. Jon Snow (from Game of Thrones)
  16. One hit wonders
  17. 20 minute hot showers
  18. Yoga pants
  19. Tour shirts
  20. Still saying “dude”

Do we share any of the same guilty pleasures? Tell me one of yours!

    Tosh.0 is definitely a guilty pleasure. I don’t get to watch it any more since we dropped cable but I did love it and I do watch clips online from time to time.

      I thought about grabbing dinner or something else but none of it sounded fun alone. I wasn’t in the mood for complete me time – I wanted socialization. We went grocery shopping together instead lol

      I’m lame… I know ;)DarcyZalewski

      Sometimes I’m embarrassed by how funny I find Tosh to be, but it’s just so ridiculous and over the top sometimes!DarcyZalewski
