Guilty Pleasures

We all have guilty pleasures mine are in the form of bad TV, even worse movies, beads and tiny things. I don't know what it is with me and tiny things. One of my favorite online stores is called Tiny Things are Cute http://www.tinythingsarecute.com/and I couldn't agree more! I love to peruse the merch and add things to my wist. Everytime I order from her the orders get bigger and bigger. One of the last things I ordered was a tiny box of treasures. I am in love with this thing. It came in the mail and I was so excited to open it. Inside was a little box FULL of all kinds of tiny little things. It had some itty bitty plastic compasses, mini fake money, a bunch of gears and such from a watch, and so many other things. I have actually taken everything out and ooohed and ahhed over it more than once. I know, I know I am a complete and total dork! It's okay though I like myself like this :)

As for bad TV, I think I watch the worst shows and love every minute of them. Gossip Girl and 90210 are my ulitimate guilty pleasures. I am even now watching some Laguna Beach/The Hills spinoff called the City. I get so wrapped up in the plots that I actually find myself TALKING to the TV!!! Maybe it's cause there is no one else there to talk to, but I think it's getting worse. I DVRed another new show on MTV called Tool Academy which I am itching to watch. I guess it's where girls send their toolish boyfriends somewhere to learn how to act like, well like non tools I guess. They trick the guys into thinking they are competeing in like a Mr. Awesome type of thing in order to get them there. For some reason this really seems funny to me. I mean if your bf acted like a complete moron jackass ALL THE TIME don't you think you would dump him???? Maybe the girls are the ones who are the real tools here. I am also a total reality TV whore. I don't know why I like it so much, it brings me so much pleasure to watch people act like idiots for the world to see. The Real World, Survivor, America's Next Top Model, I mean this list could go on and on. Now don't get me wrong I do watch some decent shows such as Lost, House and quite a bit of Discovery Channel, so therefore I am not a complete idiot.

Movies. I like lots of movies but when I am in Blockbuster I tend to gravitate towards the B straight to DVD movies that no one has ever heard of. I am not sure why since I don't think I could even list five of them that were actually good! Okay well I can name two that I remember and that I actually like Undiscovered (this may be cause the guy in the movie is pretty hot) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0434424/ and Thirteen http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0328538/ which actually was kinda scary in a weird way. I remember acting like these girls when I was 16 and even then I wasn't that bad! Makes me nervous for when my little girl is a teenager. I am not sure why I like movies that are destined to be really bad. It's like throwing money away, I mean no one has ever heard of them for a reason right??? Maybe this is why when I am going to watch a movie with someone else I usually let them pick cause if it was left up to me no one would EVER want to watch a movie with me! That would be sad.....

Seriously I know I am dork, I don't need you to remind me.......


It's the new year, time for new beginnings....

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season. Mine was hectic of course and a little strange what with splitting up time with the kids. Not having the kids on Christmas day was very strange but went better than I thought it would. I kept busy which helped keep my mind off it. It was the same deal as not having Adia on her actual birthday this year. I guess I better get used to it since this is how things are going to be for now on. I just don't like to share!!!

The kids had a good Christmas and were spoiled by everyone as usual. I always dread this time of year because I never know what to do with all the presents. I scaled back on what I bought them both because we have no room and because money is tighter this year. They still got a ton of stuff, lots of it has been put away and will remain unopened until a later date. I love to put things away and they forget about them, then when I finally pull it out it's like getting a brand new toy all over again!!! This is also good if I need something to distract them for more than five minutes at a time. All in all I am VERY glad that Christmas is done for another year. Landon can't stop talking about Santa though, so I continue to milk the be a good boy or Santa won't come. I will continue to milk it for as long as I can too.....
We rang in the new year with friends and I have hopes that this year will be better than last year. I know there will be new stresses to deal with that come along with all the changes that have been made but I think (hope) that things will work out. I didn't make any resolutions since I never keep them anyway, I just hope to be able to meet all these new challenges head on and hopefully not be so stressed! We shall see. 2009 is definitely a new start for me.

With all the holiday craziness I have let my crafting fall to the wayside and I really need to get at it again. It seems to help destress me and keeps me busy. I have signed up for three low stress swaps. Another Altoid tin with a Valentines day theme, a raffle style swap, and an owl themed swap. I have ideas mapped out for all three of them and am going to get started tonight. I will post pictures of what gets made at a later date.

I am also going to try to start working out. It's hard cause I have to do it in the mornings and I have such a hard time dragging my lazy butt out of bed. Especially this time of year when it's still dark and cold. I need to start dreaming of a bikini ready body or something! Someone please send some motivation my way! I have lost 12 pounds since the split, not sure how that happened but whoo hoo all the same! My jeans are all too big, which is not such a bad thing. Too bad I can't afford to go buy new ones!!
