This week's question is...

What are your non-book guilty pleasures? Like TV shows, food, websites, hobbies, etc.

We accidentally answered this question a few weeks back but here it is again. Sorry to everyone who has already read our answer. I was going to attempt to give some other answers but Terri was away and I am in the middle of two night shifts and am too tired to think straight.

Terri's Answer

This is a really tough question.  Outside of reading, travelling and family time there is not really a lot that I indulge in. hmmmmmmmmmm...let me see.

I do enjoy celebrity gossip magazines.  I will make it be known that I never buy them....I just read them while in line at the grocery store.  I never get cranky in a long line up while learning what the latest train wreck is wearing and what the latest scandal is.  Oh wait....I guess that can be considered a reading guilty pleasure, I'm not sure it qualifies.

I will also admit that until recently the TV show the Bachelor was a guilty pleasure.  Not because I believe that true love can be found but I find it hilarious (and sad) what some people will do for love...or is it 15 minutes of fame? bawl your eyes out on camera for having your heart ripped out because your true love who you just met and have not exchanged more than 5 words has dumped you?  Pure entertainment and a comical study in human behaviour.  Sadly even the laughs got old and I have tuned out recently.  Until the next totally cheesy entertainment crosses my path......

Kristine's Answer

Oooh...I forgot about the Bachelor. It is also one of my guilty pleasures. I didn't watch it last season because I wasn't a fan of Juan Pablo (was that his name?) but I will more than likely catch the next one. As Terri stated, it is pure comic relief. I am also obsessive about watching HGTV. House Hunter International is one of my favourite but I enjoy watching all of the home improvement ones as well. They almost never pick the house that I like best and I shake my head at some of the home improvements but it doesn't stop me from watching. Sometimes I will put it on without the volume so that I can read but look up every now and then to see what they are doing. I have found that you don't really need to hear what they are saying on those shows to still follow along.

That is our Feature and Follow Friday for this week! Comment down below if you're a new follower of ours with a link to your blog and we will make sure to follow you back. You can follow us via gfc, bloglovin, email, facebook and/or twitter.
