note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling. I found that I've missed my phone a lot less and simultaneously a lot more than I expected. And I've been noticing a difference in my mental state. My mental health is, apparently, linked in part to the device I hold in my hand 99% of the time. Who knew? However, it's still been challenging lately, for more reasons than just my phone, and my sister invited me to go outside with her. Th

My Guilty Pleasure(s) - {Day 13}

Oh, I can totally write this.
What's my guilty pleasure?
These things.

Potato chips, tortilla chips, French chips... (I'm pretty sure that the last one is actually considered a French fry. ;) You name it, I love it. It's the one junk food I still eat and LOVE. I love the way they crunch between my teeth, the way some of them melt in my mouth, and all the saltiness. It makes my day when I pick up a chip loaded with salt. There are only a few of them in each bag, but it's worth eating a whole bag in order to get to that one chip.

Wow. I sound crazy. But just get a bag of chips, and you'll realize what I'm talking about. 

My favorite kind of tortilla chips are the ones with lime on them. We have tortilla chips more often than potato ones, and I rely on them to satisfy my crunchy needs. They usually do, but when we do have potato chips, it's still amazing. 

This is another guilty pleasure. Chocolate. But not just any chocolate. It has to be DARK chocolate.

I hated dark chocolate until my dad started getting it on a regular basis. He would give me and my siblings a couple squares at a time, and I was finally converted to the taste. Now I can never go back to milk chocolate.

The only milk chocolate exception I have is Reese's Pieces butter cups. Those are pieces of heaven - can I have an amen? ;) I even like dipping my dark chocolate into peanut butter to make it taste like one.

Okay, now if you'll excuse me, I am now hungry. I need to go raid the chocolate stash. :)


  1. Amen to the Reese's! One of the best candies in the world :)

  2. I am so with you on the dark chocolate-milk chocolate thing! I LOVE dark chocolate, not so much milk chocolate.

    And POTATO CHIPS! Don't even get me started on those... I could eat like 5 bags in one sitting. Yum. :)

  3. Three cheers for dark chocolate! The only kind of chocolate I like too. ;) We're cool like that.

Comments make the world go 'round... or was that chocolate?

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
