Maybe a Little Guilt, Ok, NOT

I love this week at The Deb Ball! We get to spill our silly secret pieces of happiness. It is a little embarrassing to admit these out loud, but hey, we writers have thick skin and can take the heat, right? (Pishaw)

Here we go:


Trashy magazines. Hey, I figure I cram my brain with only so many heavy duty resources about culture, history, war, etc, per day. I’m allowed a little dessert, right?


airplane drink

Having a cocktail on an airplane (or the airport)–especially during the day. Granted, they aren’t the most delicious variety, but it feels like something forbidden that I shouldn’t be doing, therefore, I love it.



Masterpiece Theater on BBC. I even love all the dorky British flicks from the 80s and 90s. I’m not sure what’s up with that.



Fun sneakers, particularly with the Euro-trash look.



Smoking a cigar with a glass of port around a campfire on a fall day or night. A few of my girlfriends and I started this tradition and continue it every year, even after babies.


What’s your secret guilty pleasure?
