I started thinking about "guilty pleasures" this morning, as I indulged what felt like a few- enjoying a chocolaty breakfast in horrendously bright fleece pants while catching up on the last Real Housewives.
And then I thought, it's these little guilty pleasure moments- that you might find embarrassing to admit out loud to those who aren't close to you- that are responsible for a lot of fun and enjoyment in life, huh? So why not indulge every now and again, sans guilt!
Here are a few of my guilty pleasures:
- my true day-to-day wardrobe
(as seen in the pic above) which consists of things not worn very far beyond the proximity of my own house/yard. It's mostly fleece, yoga wear and wool socks. Or in the summertime- kaftans!
- I start and end each day with chocolate
that means cocoa in my coffee and ice cream every night. Yes, every night. See, I'm feeling guilty about it right now!
- chimichangas bigger than my head
I like my deep fried burritos covered in sour cream and avocado too, to seal the "this can't be good for you" deal. *random side note: in 11th grade spanish class, we had to pick "spanish names" to call ourselves, and I chose "Chimichanga". It caught on like wildfire and became one of my many high school nicknames. Another school nickname of mine? Jena Tulls. Yeah, got to 7th grade before the boys figured that one out.
- basically any reality tv show that's on bravo
RHOBH, Bethanny, Top Chef, that Art show show, Rachel Zoe, Brad, the Matchmaker lady- all of em. They keep me company while I work- I'm all alone in here!
- doing house projects & errands during normal "work hours"
It's the little things about self-employed life that make up for 401ks and health benefits. Like being able to rearrange all the art on your office wall at 10:30 on a Tuesday morn, if that's what you feel like doing. Or going to brunch at the spots that are crazy 2-hour waits on the weekend, to slip right into a seat on a Wednesday. Or being able to get 5 loads of laundry done on a Thursday afternoon, WHILE you work! It's a thrill a minute, I tell ya.
Now that I've shared some of my embarrassing guilty pleasures- what are some of yours, hmmm???
