Guilty pleasure? Glad you asked! There are so many: strawberry Twizzlers with popcorn and a glass of La Crema chardonnay while watching a Hallmark channel Christmas movie, Duran Duran, Bonne Belle creamsicle lip gloss, Etsy, Christmas shopping for myself at the Boothbay Harbor early bird sale, infomercials, "as seen on T.V." products, buying myself fresh flowers, and letting other people drive-to name just a few. I hate to drive, it's a pleasure to have someone else do it, but I also feel guilty. Those are off the top of my head. Etsy is probably my most time consuming guilty pleasure, and most expensive! I'll tell you about my bizarre antique-altered art plate collection another time.
