My Weaknesses

We all have weaknesses. Those things that even though we say "NO!", we eventually turn around and say yes.


Here are my Top 10:

1. An extra hour of sleep - I always set my alarm an hour before I really need to get up, and then when it wakes me, I set it to go off again when I really need to wake up. I trick myself into thinking I am getting an extra hour of sleep.

2. Brian's goofy dancing - No matter how hard I try not to laugh, there's this particular dance Brian does when I am mad at him, and I ALWAYS burst out into laughter. ALWAYS.

3. Cheese - Particularly Pecorino Romano cheese. I can't resist it. I hate it when we run out, so I always buy a new block just before our current one runs out.

4. Desserts - I can be REALLY full after a big meal, but if there's dessert, I somehow make room for it.

5. Weekend Breakfasts - During the week I can go without breakfast if I don't have time, but on weekends - I love making a big breakfast.

6. Lattes (with and without ice) - I am a sucker for lattes. Any time I go out to eat, along with water, I like to have a latte to complete my meal.

7. Pretty plates - Probably my biggest impulse buy item.

8. Anthropologie - my favorite store. I love their products, their styling, everything!

9. Ruche - I would say that at least half of my clothes are from this store. I LOVE it!!!

10. Cooking Reality TV Shows - Brian and I have a few shows that we watch together on Hulu. 4 out of 7 of them are cooking shows.

What are your weaknesses?

(PS. My latest Meylah article is up. It's all about being an effective blogger. Check it out here).

Shopping... Food (esp. eating out!)...

Takeaway Coffee is a big weakness of mine, expensive and high in calories but I just can't walk past the shop! And then I also have to have a muffin!

Kitchen stuff, cooking shows, and i'm also a sucker that sets my alarm too early just so i can be grateful to sleep a little longer....
I also change all the clocks in the house to be 10 minutes fast, while my momma runs around and changes them all back, because it makes her neurotic to think that they aren't precise (and that i think i can change something like that which we are not in control of :p ),
I on the other hand, know what time it really is, and I'm actually not trying to fool myself, i just don't want the kids to think they can sit around for 10 more minutes because then we WILL be late! :)

J-Fur is obsessed with anthropologie though she is pretty good about not always buying stuff from there. I had a latte the other day at a local tea place, pumpkin spice, it made me really want to see the fall (actual fall not just calendar fall).

Lovely notes said...

Good heavens, the Ruche website is heavenly!
I am not sure whether I should thank you or never come here again to keep my wallet from being useless without any money to keep in it... ;)
You have such a lovely blog!

Oh my gosh, I have too many weaknesses to count! :) The ones on the top of my mind are (1) the Paper Zone (2) iTunes (3) mason jars (4) a little brick and mortar shop in Seattle called the Endless Knot. Oh, and gnocchi too, it's just too good to pass it up! Thanks for passinga long Ruche, it looks amazing! And such great prices too!
