"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

My Guilty Pleasures

Welcome to Day 3 of Calliope's blogging summer camp. Today, we're talking about our guilty pleasures. I'm not really sure if I can claim to have guilty pleasures because I don't feel bad or guilty about liking any of these things. However, there are things I absolutely love...
  • I adore good chocolate...sinfully rich, absolutely decadent chocolate.
  •  I love to read and can lose myself in books. I read everything from romances to biographies to history. If it's good, I read it.
  • Give me a really good bottle of champagne and I'm a happy camper...pair it with some of those decadent chocolates from number 1 and I'm in heaven.
  • I truly love to sleep in. The feeling you get when you gently wake up without kids yelling or alarms blaring is amazing. It's too bad it happens so infrequently.
  • I LOVE shoes. I love flats and sandals and boots and sky high heels. If space and money weren't an issue, I would gladly have a walk in closet filled with with nothing but shoes.
  • I really love high thread count sheets. They feel soooooo good on my freshly shaved legs.
What are some of your not so guilty pleasures?

I'm like you - I don't really have a guilty pleasure. There's nothing I won't admit to without shame.

I am so with you on the sleeping in thing. I'm with you also on chocolate and shoes, but it's the sleep one that had me nodding.

I love beer way too much.
I love cheesecake and red velvet cake way too much.
I love the internet way too much.
I am an over-achiever in the guily pleasures department ;-)

I am another lover of sleep. Thankfully, two of the three boys love it just as much as I do. :-)

I don't know if it's a guilty pleasure but there is a perfume I LOVE and it has Britney Spears name on it. Never dreamed I would like anything with her name on it.
I'll take the sleeping in too.

It took me a while to understand why high thread count sheets were the only ones soft like the ones we had growing up. I knew my mom didn't buy luxury sheets for us. Turns out that old, worn in, washed hundreds of times sheets are very nice too.
