Hi everyone and happy Friday! I hope your week went well! I’m a little under the weather but I’m doing alright for the most part. I’m just going to relax today and this weekend. When it comes to music, TV shows, lifestyle choices and even food, I have a few guilty pleasures. Guilty pleasures are things you like but don’t really want others to know about. My son, a few family members and friends know of some of mine already. I hope they make you laugh or at least smile a little bit. How about you? Do you have any guilty pleasures? If you do, please feel free to add them in the comments. I guess we’ll start with TV shows. Don’t judge me!
“Full House”- In 2016, me and my son are still catching reruns of “Full House” on Friday nights. Yea, bye bye nights at the club and bar! I think I still enjoy the cheesy show because I grew up watching it with my parents and sister in the late 80’s and 90’s. Michelle Tanner was well-known for her phrases like “You got it dude!” and “You’re in trouble Mister!” I’ll admit it…I had a crush on uncle Jesse (John Stamos) for awhile there. Hell who am I kidding? He’s still hot at 53 years old! I would also get excited whenever the other daughters had dating dilemmas or problems at school. Why? I don’t know! I guess because I went through some of those things too and they’re around my age. I can’t think of any other guilty pleasure TV shows right now. If I come up with anymore, I’ll let you know.
I can’t believe I’m saying this but I sometimes play the song above really loud in my car. Even though “Top Gun” was released in the 80’s, the song and movie take me back to my high school and college years. We always watched this movie in my ROTC class. I was thinking of joining the military so I took this class in high school and college. Yea…I can’t believe I still like this song but I do!
Lately, I’ve been listening to 80’s/90’s band Roxette a lot. I discovered “Rain Queen” the other day and I can’t stop listening to it. I’m also a fan of a couple of their other songs like “Listen to your Heart” and “It Must’ve Been Love” (a.k.a. the song from “Pretty Woman”).
Yeah, no comment on this one…I wonder what Sisqo’s up to these days? I have plenty of other guilty pleasure songs but I couldn’t think of any others right now. I’ll blog about others another time.
I’m always craving pickles! I especially LOVE the hot pickles in a huge jar at the gas station. My mouth just got watery thinking about them! 😀 I’m probably the only one who buys those pickles! The jar always seems to be full.
This might or might not be an El Paso thing but every time I’ve told people about it, they say they’ve never heard of it. Two snacks I enjoy to the CORE are: Flamin’ Hot Cheetos in a bag drenched in Velveeta cheese or gas station nacho cheese. I like to eat them with a fork. Another favorite snack is Dorinachos. Dorisnachos includes Nacho Cheese Doritos, jalapenos, nacho cheese and chili beans. Doggos makes the best Dorinachos in town!
Since it’s getting cold in El Paso, I’m a BIG fan of furry/fluffy pajama pants and socks. If anyone ever wants to buy me a present, please buy me furry socks or pj pants! I’m also a big fan of big, fat, thick Mexican style blankets. My grandma just gave me an old one and it’s the warmest and best thing ever! Oh yea, I also like wearing furry sweaters and ugly Christmas sweaters. 😀 Since me and my son have been sick this week, we’ve been putting Vicks on our bodies a lot. Am I the only one who LOVES the smell of it? I love to put it in on my nostrils!
