Cheers to another year! A quick look back in 1-second snippets:




This has been such a fun & low maintenance memory keeping project. I love how many memories 1 second of video footage can spark, and the joy of watching them all add up to a whole year is spectacular.

blog-tember day 20 // guilty pleasures

I can’t believe we’re 2/3 done with Blog-tember! This challenge has been so much fun, a little stressful, and has pushed me to create and write better content. I want to be sure to use the momentum I gained during this challenge after it’s over.

But without further ado, today’s prompt:

Sunday, Sept. 20: It’s guilty pleasure time! Shows, books, songs, foods, whatever it may be.

Ok. There are so many things I could talk about so I’ll break it into a few categories:

shows: Once Upon A Time & anything on the Food Network.

I started watching Once Upon A Time early this year and got hooked. I was embarrassed I liked it so much after thinking it was stupid before I watched it. I tore through seasons 1 & 2 while I knit, but only when Matthew wasn’t home. I didn’t want to force him to watch it. I slowed down a lot once the Wicked Witch showed up and I’m still working my way through the episodes. I think it’s gone downhill, BUT I’m excited that the next season is on Netflix now!

And of course I can’t talk about TV I love without mentioning the Food Network. I could literally watch it all. day. long. It’s bad. So it’s good that we don’t have it at home.

songs: Taylor. Swift.

I don’t even care, I love that woman so hard. She’s totally ridiculous and adorable and life is way too short to pretend you don’t like catchy Taylor Swift songs.

foods: Duck Donuts, Pumpkin Iced Coffee from DD, pie, Peppermint Mochas, fries, dark chocolate

I love yummy things, and those are some of my favorites. I hate the beloved PSL from Starbucks but I love me a pumpkin iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts when the season rolls around. But nothing beats out a Starbucks peppermint mocha (no whip) for me. They taste like Christmas and when Matthew surprises me with one it’s the best <3.

extras: The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon YouTube videos, tetris, dumb iPhone games, online shopping & perusing Target & The Container Store

Whenever Jimmy Fallon shows up in my newsfeed and I go to YouTube to watch the video, I have to be real careful not to fall down the rabbit hole and watch 20 more videos. They’re so funny & I love that man.

Another guilty pleasure is free iPhone game downloads. My favorite by far is Two Dots. I have lately been into this stupid game called Cooking Dash that is weirdly addicting. And Tetris! I’ve always loved Tetris but just recently got it on my phone. I know these games are big time wasters so I try to limit myself but I’d really probably be better off if I just deleted them. Maybe after I get all the stars for each round….

I love online shopping. It is way more fun than wondering around a mall and I love the challenge of finding the best price and getting free shipping (unless, of course, it doesn’t work out and then I’m just annoyed.). Plus, it’s so much fun to get packages in the mail!

And I could (and do) walk around Target or The Container Store for hours. It’s hard to do without spending money, but even if I DO manage to get out of there without buying anything, it’s still fun for me. And if we had them closer, IKEA and Crate&Barrel would be on this list too!
