    cookbooks, I love trying new recipes

    fingernail polish, I have over 300 bottles and often create my own by blending some that are running low

    counted cross-stitch, knitting, or crocheting when spare time allows

    LOL! I always thought "guilty" pleasures were supposed to be ones you were at least a little bit embarrassed by. You ladies are WAY too sweet and innocent!

    A pint of Ice Cream - right out of the pint.
    Really naughty books (think 50 Shades - only well-written) :reading:

    YouTube Videos by the real whackadoodles (Flat Earth, Reptillians, Ancient Giant Aliens and assorted conspiracy theories).
    Cookies right out of the oven - right off the pan.

    Baileys Irish Cream in my morning coffee

    Jammie Days - sleeping as late as possible, getting up, getting some coffee (with Baileys ;) ) and eating absolute junk like biscuits and gravy while settled in on the couch with a blanket and watching TV the REST of the day until I go back to bed - without ever getting dressed or doing an iota of work that isn't required to feed myself. (This is also referred to as SLOTH.)

    Using my government-supplied, intended only for work, internet for THIS.:winks:

    Ok, I won't be revealing what my REAL guilty pleasures are!

    But my not-really-guilty pleasures include:

    Really bad horror movies on Netflix, watched on Saturday night with hubby after daughter goes to bed (you haven't lived if you have missed "Zombeavers" and the classic "Tucker and Dale Fight Evil"). OK, maybe this one should count as a REAL guilty pleasure! I need to look up the crazy conspiracy-theory ones, Lil. Haven't done that one!

    Playing with my daughter's pet mice (who knew they would be so loveable?)

    Sharing a Pepsi with my hubby after our monthly shopping trip ( only part I look forward to).

    Sexy undies and lingerie (sexy beats comfortable every time!)

    Rubbing my hubby's hairy chest (oops, too much information?) Sorry, you asked for it....

    @ksm You are positively wholesome if those are your "guilty" pleasures. :angel2:

    OMG! Another human besides Jabber and I have seen Zombeavers!
    :rofl: What an absolutely ridiculous movie! I've never seen Tucker and Dale Fight Evil - but definitely need to. Have you ever seen "Bubba Hotep"? If not, you really should. Fairly "adult" language, but soooo weird and campy and funny.

    I will look up Bubba Hotep!

    Hubby thinks he may have seen it before, but is not sure.

    The horror/comedy genre is an underrated and underappreciated commodity!

    Bubba HoTep was under appreciated. By me. All three times. My hubby loved it. But he also loved the Brisco County Jr series. For different reasons, but it has the same actor.

    Really bad reality tv (which is most reality tv) watched late at night. So I can laugh in peace at the idiots. And make fun of them. Sometimes with my daughter.

    I don't really have that many things I am embarrassed about. I had a kid who would tell anyone everything, and would do anything anywhere. So I got over being embarrassed because that just egged him on.
