What is it: 

Life of a Blogger is a weekly feature hosted by Novel Heartbeat on Thursdays.  Each week has a new topic where we can all get to know each other on a more personal level.  Join in and let’s have some fun!

Ok, so I am just finding this meme, and I’m a little late with this  first post, but I think the topic is a fun one so I’m going to post it anyway!

Topic for February 27, 2014:  Guilty Pleasures

Sleeping In

I can complain, complain, complain about not having enough time in the week to get everything I want done, done. But give me the weekend, and all I want to do is sleep. Even if I wake up, say 9 or 9:30, I will lay back down and see if I can’t just squeeze another hour or so in. It doesn’t help that my pug, Ernie likes to sleep in too. We’ll snuggle in the morning and put off getting up as long as possible.

Sugar-Free Amp Energy Drinks

I’m addicted.  I know a lot of people enjoy their coffee drinks, but for me it is Amps.  The regular are too sugary for me so I try to stick to the sugar-free ones.  I normally drink them continually throughout the day, then switch to my next guilty pleasure.

Half & Half Ice Tea & Lemonade (Arnold Palmer)

This is my go-to drink of the evening.  I found these HUGE tumblers and as soon as I get home I fill them with ice and my Arnold Palmer.


I love all dogs, but I am totally besotted by the pug.  I love the feel of them all curled up in my lap.  I love the light snores and the way they follow me everywhere I go when I am home.  I volunteer as a foster for the DFW Pug Rescue here in Texas.  I love helping these faithful, loyal babies.

My Library

I know this is supposed to be about the other side of our lives outside of reading and blogging, but my library is like an obsession with me.  Despite 99% of my reading being via e-book and audiobooks, I collect paper books.  Even if I have already read them, I will buy them and try to collect whole series.  I have one series that I have in audio, paperback and hard cover.  I am a collector.  I love to have them on hand in case an author comes to town and then I can get them signed.  I also love to keep all kinds of swag.  I found these great boxes that look like books that I fill with swag.  I am obsessed with it.


I LOVE me some Winchester boys!  I haven’t completely caught up in the series yet, thank God, so I’m not in that constant state of anxiety waiting for the next episode.  This is something my daughter and I do whenever we get the chance.  My son used to watch with us, but he gave up saying it got too cheesy for him.  The blasphemy!

Other TV Shows I’m obsessed with

I was devastated when American Horror Story: Coven ended.  I now faithfully watch Bitten, Being Human, Criminal Minds and The Walking Dead.

What types of guilty pleasures do you have?
