My Top 7 Guilty Pleasures

You have probably heard of Chris Brogan. Right? He’s a pretty popular and well-known blogger. I came a cross this post of his the other day that inspired me to write this post. His suggestion (#40) is actually a top 10 list, but I decided to adapt it to a top 7 for QT. And since I don’t think the list needs any further introduction I’ll just get started:

My Top 7 Guilty Pleasures

— 1 —

Ice Cream. Oh, my. Ice cream is my downfall for sure. I would eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks or anytime if I could!

— 2 —

Books. Let me loose in the Library or bookstore for a few hours and I’m a happy camper. 🙂 I have a hundred books on my Kindle that I probably will never read. I’m a minimalist at heart (just ask my husband) and frugal but not when it comes to books! I love being surrounded with books and things to read.

Dark Chocolate M & M’s. What woman doesn’t like chocolate?! I actually wasn’t a fan of chocolate until I grew up and discovered the deliciousness of dark chocolate. Especially M & Ms. When I was expecting Andrew M & M’s was my #1 craving and to this day I still love ’em. 🙂

Roller Coasters. Anyone who knows me in real life knows that I’m as far from being a risk taker as they come. Physically I have to be because of my CP, but I’m also rather timid and not one for doing crazy things. But I love me some roller coasters! It’s my one thrill. LOL!

So You Think You Can Dance?. Dare I confess this here?! I’ve stopped watching almost all TV, except for movies that I either rent or tape. Most TV is mindless, moral-less crap; however, I absolutely LOVE So You Think You Can Dance? ! I love all the different styles of dances featured on the show. I love the music. I love the costumes (although the lack of modesty bothers me at times). And I love how they change out the different judges each week, especially in the beginning of the season.

Pinterest. It’s addictive. Not quite as addictive as ice cream or books, but addictive all the same. LOL! It’s a great place to find ideas, to stay organized, to showcase your favorite things. It’s a great place to go for motivation and inspiration. You could also use it for marketing and promoting your own blogs and products. Most importantly, it’s just plain fun! Not a member yet?

Angry Birds. It’s the dumbest game ever. And Frustrating. And the music is annoying. I have it on my Pandigital and I love it. 😳 What is angry birds you ask? it is a game where you have to swing the birds across the screen to break the fortress of the pigs who have stolen the birds’ eggs. So dumb and yet so fun. I guess that’s what makes it a ‘guilty pleasure.” 🙂

As I often do, I’m now turning the tables on you. What are your top guilty pleasures? Do share in the comments!

  1. Great idea for a Quick Takes, Carol! I enjoyed reading your guilty pleasures! I’ll probably “borrow” this idea from you and do a Guilty Pleasures Quick Takes in the future! One of my unusual guilty pleasures is watching “Billy the Exterminator.” I never thought I’d be interested in a show about an exterminator, but it’s actually quite entertaining. God bless…

      Feel free to borrow away, Ellen. 🙂

      Ha! There are so many reality shows out now that I’m actually not surprised there’s a show about an exterminator! Thanks for sharing your own guilty pleasure. 🙂
