Things Moms Say: Guilty Pleasures

All moms, whether they stay at home or work or are married or single or some mix of all of the above, work HARD.  Like, DANG hard.  Parenting is a 24 hour, 7 day a week job with very little room for sick days or vacation time.  Moms earn pampering points each day, so when they indulge in a some secret (or not-so-secret) guilty pleasures, we can't hold it against them.

This week I asked my fave Philly Social Media Mom bloggers....

What is your Guilty Pleasure?

I'll start.  

My guilty pleasure is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. No, not the ice cream.  I'm talking the tubes of salmonella-laden goodness that I eat with a spoon until I want to throw up.

Don't judge me.

Here is what my girls had to say...


"Dance Moms - Love that train wreck!" - Steph from A Grande Life

"Swedish fish" - Pam from I Forgot What I Was Doing

"Take out Chinese and Cole Hann handbags" - Sarah from Finnegan and the Hughes

"Starbucks Caramel Frappuccinos. I can't get enough of them" - Cindy from Whatever Works

"OMG where to even start. . .right now it's the online game Fleck. Gardening and zombies - complete diversion from life" - Hillary from My Scraps

"Vanilla ice cream with chunky peanut butter! YUM!" - Stephanie from Mamma Bear's World

"Cadbury eggs and Cadbury caramel chocolate bars" - Barb from A Life in Balance

"Tabloid magazines - Star, US, People!" - Marissa from Land of Once Upon a Time

"Tiramasu cake from Alfredo BYO! I take a piece home for my husband and I to "share" after I finish hostessing there but he never gets to eat it! I usually gobble it up in the parking lot when I get in the car!" - Paola from Modestly Chic

"Rum cake... I never make it at home only when I'm going somewhere,it's just too tempting, worse than cheesecake topped w/sour cream and cherries and worse than, god forbit, yellow baby peeps shaped like chicks (picky aren't I?)" - Nancy from Defeating the Squirrels

"Doing NOTHING. Just lying in bed or outside in the grass and not doing a thing in the world" - Robin from Simple Green Organic Happy


So now we want to know: 

What are YOUR Guilty Pleasures??

Leave a comment below -  and have a good wee


  1. I'm not a stay at home mom, but I will admit plopping my child in front of the TV for a few hours, and throwing some candy at him to keep him occupied so I can get some things done isn't something that I don't do all the time!!!!

  2. sending the kids to the inlaws' for the weekend! ;-)

  3. Fluevogs. Comic books. Facebook Scrabble.

  4. I just read Fifty Shades of Grey. Total mom porn and yes, I felt guilty the whole time!


Hey! Share a thought or two - I'd love to hear from you! ~ Steph
