Monday Listicles

If you are feeling a little guilty about a lot of stuff, you are in the right place.

Because this time on Listicles we are confessing our guilty pleasures. Miss Marina Star called it last week and my first thought was chocolate. I think there is chocolate for any occasion. Like waking up, or smiling or nagging. In fact the likelihood of me simply listing 10 chocolate items I consumed in the past 24 hours is unreasonably high. The only trouble is I do not feel guilty about eating it one bit. So I asked my husband to make a list.Thank you Marina for getting him a free pass from mowing this weekend.

Before you run off a big shout out to Terri for choosing a smashing topic last week. I expected many odes to smartphone, but I was pleasantly surprised how many of you remembered to thank the garbage collectors. Right on!

Next week: ON THE ROAD. Ten things that come to mind regarding road. Where it takes you, where you want to go, what ticks you off, why you spend so much time on it… Free styling baby, vent or dream. Or both. Can’t wait to go on the road with you!

I know you are all eager to see what makes my man’s heart skip a beat. Here goes.

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



10 Devine pleasures from a man’s point of view

1. Grabbing the wife’s lovely bum.

2. Listening to my son explain something that he has learned.

3. The 1st hot cup of tea in the morning when the house is still silent… Just me, my thoughts and the cup of tea.

4. My morning constitutional.

5. Blasting my favorite songs over the stereo way too loud as soon as I get the house to myself.

6. A glass of red wine.

7. Red meat.

8. A cigar… My smoking parameters are a bit strict as a cigar can only be enjoyed outside when the weather is perfect (this is a rarity as the Pacific Northwest weather routinely consists of wind and rain).

9. A tumbler of my favorite scotch whiskey with the cigar.

10. The feeling of accomplishment after a workout.

    Love how he admits to tea. Doesn’t quite match the rest of the manly list. Should be having black coffee or something…

    Great idea, Stasha! I love blasting loud music throughout the house, too :) Now I’m thinking I should ask my husband to make a list of is. Though sometimes I think women are better at “guilty” pleasures – I don’t think there’s as much my husband feels guilty about.

    You’re so smart! I should’ve asked Irishman! I would love to know what his guilty pleasures are…or what HE thinks are his guilty pleasures.

    I could adopt this list as well, minus the cigar of course. If I were a person who smoked, I’ve no doubt I would appreciate a fine cigar as well!

    Love the view from a man’s eyes!!

    I used to go fishing with my dad….I have very fond memories of sitting in early dawns light, sipping scotch and smoking cigars while our lines bobbed on the surface. great times.
    (for the record, it’s Canada and thus cold at dawn – hence the scotch, and the cigar smoke kept the bugs away. at least that’s what we tell mom :)
    I cannot wait for my guilty pleasure – my super fast computer to be fixed so I can return to normal blogging!

    I’m not sure what your morning constitutional is but if it’s anything like my husband’s I really don’t want to know. Everything else on the list – loved it! PS: I love the scent of a good cigar outside.
