I can think of many things I am guilty of, in fact writing this and neglecting my family would be one but I am not sure I would call it a guilty pleasure. So, I did what everyone in this age does and googled the definition:
Then there is Urban Dictionary's definition:
I am not sure which of the two is better. One seems innocent and the other seems down right dirty. For the sake of this post I will keep my guilty pleasures on the PG side.
My Top 5 Guilty Pleasures
1. People watching at the Market.Most days, when I am shopping at our Market, I am actively avoiding the tourist. And, by tourist I mean those who don't come very often and have to look at absolutely. everything. Drives me nuts.
But then there are the days that I take the kids up to the balcony, sit back and just watch. It is relatively quiet when you are above all of the chaos and it reminds me to be still.
2. Grandma Freda’s Cupcakes.
Actually now, they are called Grandma Campbell’s Cupcakes but when they first opened their stand at the West Side Market (same as above) the husband and I have been making ourselves fat on them. My favorite is the chai but they only make that one seasonally. This past year they opened a shop in our city that has not just their cupcakes but also all of the other sweets they sell. It is very dangerous to have it so close to us.

3. Wine, chocolate and a good book - alone.
With a schedule like ours, I don't get to be alone often but when I do and I want to splurge I head to Lilly's in Tremont.
4. A great pedicure.
I happened upon Addictions because of a Groupon and it is by far one of the best places I've gone for a pedicure and especially my hair. I love them. If you want to check it out - email me! I have a referral card with a great discount I will happily give you.
5. Doctor Who.
What can I say, I am a fan. My son and I sat breathlessly to see who the next Doctor would be and we were glued to the boob tube for the 50th special and the Christmas special, too. We are fans and I love that I can share it with my kid.
