Show & Tell Tuesday: Guilty Pleasures

Just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone for your well wishes yesterday!  Yesterday I hit the ground running and felt much better!


I feel like I have a lot of guilty pleasures - most of them relating to the types of TV shows I watch, the books I read and food (of course!)!  While these aren't necessarily guilty pleasures because I totally own them, I still feel like they qualify.

TV shows - I love a good reality show and I do not discriminate!  I have been a faithful viewer of both Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2, since way back when they were just 16 & Pregnant.  Flip to the other end of the reality TV spectrum, and I absolutely LOVE Swamp People.  Of course, I can get sucked into any Real Housewives series.  And watch the episodes over and over again.  I am a big fan of when Bravo airs marathons.  I have mentioned time and time again that I love The Pioneer Woman.  So much so, that I have a ton of her episodes recorded and keep them on my DVR for whenever I get an itch to watch her show.

Books - give me all the cheesy romance novels!  While I do love to read a lot of different books, cheesy romance novels are probably my favorite.  Give me a rich billionaire falling for his receptionist / personal assistant that takes no crap from him, or the person he hired to be his fake fiance, and I am hooked.  Or a SEAL, or any type of military person, who is hardened and then just happens to find his true love.  Or a cowboy...honestly, the list goes on.  I just love those happy endings!  Predictable?  Yes.  Cheesy?  Yes.  I always get sucked in, though.  Pretty much reading in general is somewhat of a guilty pleasure of mine - I have been known to stay up late just to finish a good book!

Food - I crave ice cream in the winter.  Not sure why, but I do.  I could eat Chipotle tacos almost every day.  Lots of salt is necessary on my popcorn, which, movie theater popcorn is such a weakness of mine.  I really wish that I could just go in sometimes and buy a bag of popcorn.  I know some places sell 'movie theater popcorn', but it's just not the same as the real deal, in my opinion.  I loved coffee when I was little, but as I got older, I hated it with a passion.  Well that all changed last year when I tried my first PSL and I have been hooked on Starbucks drinks since!  The cost of those drinks definitely make it a guilty pleasure!  Olive Garden breadsticks...pretty much the whole reason to go to Olive Garden, although I do love their salad just as much, but gosh the breadsticks are the best.  Yum!

  2. Ahhh I should have remembered to do this link up because I have LOTS of guilty pleasures! Yes to brainless tv shows and I'm also obsessed with watching Hallmark Christmas movies year-round ha! Reading love stories that have a happy ending...yep! And there's certain foods for me that are guilty pleasures....like a double doozie from the cookie company! My sister is obsessed with the OG breadsticks and I'm the only person who doesn't care for them--now their salad, amazing! Have a great Tuesday, friend!

  6. I think we have a lot in common, esp. with the food picks! Now I'm craving Chipotle and movie theater popcorn this morning. I'm more of a romance movie kind of girl and self help books, but I do enjoy fiction books sometimes too. =)))

  9. I must be some kind of freak...no reality tv for me. I can totally get behind some ice cream though and if you like salty popcorn with a little less guilt, try Popcornopolis Nearly Naked (I buy it at Costco) It's delicious, salty and low cal. :)

  13. I used to work at the movie theater when I was 16-19 and I used to bring home the movie theater popcorn all the time for my Momma! You're so right that nothing you make at home will ever taste as good! I did get tired of smelling like it all the time, though. Haha.
