Mommy Reality Challenge: Guilty Pleasure

It’s time for another Mommy Reality Challenge post!

Yay! πŸ™‚

Not familiar with it?  Well, it’s a fun challenge to capture Mommy Realties hosted by A Lavender Life JENerally Informed , and  Leapfrog and Lipgloss .  Each week, moms are given a specific topic to share a snapshot of the REAL deal.  

I’ve been participating in it for a while now. You can see my previous posts by clicking the following links:

Unfortunately, sometimes it just completely slips my mind.  Or I just never get around to snapping a pic for that category.  But I got a friendly reminder from Celeste at Leapfrog and Lipgloss on twitter today, which I most definitely appreciate, because I really love writing these posts!

Oh, and have I mentioned how much I just love the mommies that are participating in this challenge?  It’s just so refreshing to see a little honesty about what really goes on behind the scenes of these fabulous blogs!  I don’t feel the need to live up to some unreachable standard, because I can see that these women aren’t perfect.  And to me, that’s awesome!

High-five for not being perfect! πŸ™‚

Anyway, back the challenge…

This weeks topic is Guilty Pleasure.  It’s all about those silly, little things you indulge in that help save your sanity!

If you know me personally, I’m sure you can guess what mine is…

Oh yeah, it’s some good ol’ Diet Coke!

Yes, I am well aware how bad it is for me.  So please don’t send me the horror stories about what it’s doing to my body.

Just remind me to never quit quitting!

I will someday, I swear!

But for now, it’s basically like this super cute printable says: “This house runs on love and Diet Coke.”

But since it’s late, I’m currently drinking the caffeine-free stuff. Which, in my opinion, is probably like drinking non-alcoholic beer… What’s the point?!?!

And maybe I should bring up my sweet-tooth too… Yes, those are E.L. Fudge cookies I’m snacking on.  I should probably mention the packages of candy bars in the pantry, the ice cream in the freezer, and chocolate cupcake on the counter.  No, I’m not eating it all at once, but I do give in to my sweet-tooth when the kids can’t see (and I don’t have to share!).

Lastly, there’s Pinterest. I waste time promote my blog on Pinterest each night after the kids are in bed.  But somehow, I get sucked in for an hour when I only meant to go on for 10 minutes.  I don’t even know how it happens! But it’s all for the sake of growing my blog! (so I tell myself…) πŸ™‚

Well, that’s it for this week!  My Mommy Reality Guilty Pleasure = Diet Coke, sweets, & Pinterest!

What is is your guilty pleasure do you indulge in?  Leave me a comment here, or let me know on my Facebook page!

And that’s a little bit about Me TODAY!

I love E.L Fudge cookies! I am amazed at your restraint though, only 4. That bag would be empty by morning if it were me!

Sarah @ Me Plus 3... TODAY!

Haha! I only put 4 on a plate and put the package away in attempts to control myself. But that doesn't mean I didn't take the package back out and put 4 MORE on my plate… πŸ™‚

I have never heard of EL Fudge cookies, but if they've got fudge in them I can see why they are a guilty pleasure…As for the diet coke, a bit of what we fancy does us good! Enjoy!

Sarah @ Me Plus 3... TODAY!

I think it's fake fudge in them, but for some reason, they are still yummy! πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading!

Celeste Proveaux

YES! A gal after my own heart! Love Diet Coke!<br /><br />I love that i-high-five, by the way. I'm so using it whenever I need positive affirmation around here… Er, I mean to stick in a potential blog post at some point. Yes, that's what I mean ;).

Sarah @ Me Plus 3... TODAY!

Haha, I know, I LOVED that high-five the first time I saw in one of my blogger groups. I use it all the time too!

Kate Kranz

YES! I love all of those things…. except I think I am worse than you because I loooove REAL pop. You know, the one with an ass-load of sugar in it?! Yummmmm.<br /><br /> I convince myself that since I don't smoke, drink (regularly) or do drugs, I should be allowed POP!!<br />

Sarah @ Me Plus 3... TODAY!

Haha, good point! Although I'm kind of convinced that Diet Coke might just be a drug! πŸ™‚ I'll quit someday… πŸ™‚
