Five of My Guilty Pleasures

Life gets so hectic at times - we forget to take care of ourselves.  I have been blessed with the opportunity to work on creating my own business during the past three months.  Well I tell you ~ this working from home and starting a business is NOT for the faint of heart!  I have found that I have a really hard time balancing everything working from home - chores become intertwined with creating.......before I know it ~ the day is gone. 

I've been eating, living, breathing, trying to create product........I wake up thinking about it........go to sleep thinking about it..........and quite frankly haven't been taking very good care of myself!  So I dedicate this next week to indulging in at least one of my guilty pleasures each day. 

Five of my Guilty Pleasures:

(1)  Marshmallow Creme (by itself or just about anything)
Think I'll try these strawberries dipped in marshmallow ~ looks yummy

(2)  Books Books Books ~ Love to Read
(Haven't indulged in this lately - so think I'll visit the Library this week )
Maybe I will pick up:

"Dreams of Joy" by Lisa See

or maybe this.......

(3)  PINTEREST - Yes I love it.....Yes I'm addicted.....and Yes I feel guilty!

(4)  Big Fat Fluffy Soft Slippers
Like these......from one of my favorite stores ~ Garnet Hill

(5)  Just do NOTHING - maybe sit outside......have a Fall picnic....... and look up at the sky, the trees, the birds......

Well there you have it.....five of my guilty pleasures ~ I'll let you know how it goes.  What are some of your "guilty pleasures"?

“In the best of times, our days are numbered anyway. So it would be a crime against nature for any generation to take the world crisis so solemnly, that it put off enjoying those things for which we were designed in the 1st place: the opportunity to do good work, to enjoy friends, to fall in love, to hit a ball, and to bounce a baby.” ~ Alistair Cooke ~
