You Are About to See Something Special

There are certain things people don’t usually share. Their salary, political beliefs, ‘magic number’, feelings on drugs and abortion, whether they really believe in God. I can appreciate this, but I’m about to show you something most people don’t usually divulge. That’s right. Here it comes…

My guilty pleasure resume!

It’s not so much a document detailing my experience as it is a photographic expression of my commitment to the lifestyle. Nevertheless, I’m available for hire for all your guilty pleasure gigs, big and small (please submit job descriptions, down payments, and pictures of animals dressed as other animals to gojulesgo@ialwaysknewidberich.com). Enjoy:

1.) I have a cabinet full of plastic Medieval Times cups at all times (keepsakes from my 27th birthday party that we use constantly):

I'd like to dedicate this toast to all the knights and wenches in the hiz-ouse.

2.) This is my Harry Potter wall calendar, hanging in the kitchen for all to admire:

Don't you hate the boring months like this? Who cares about these guys?

3.) A staple: vodka in the freezer. …’Scuse me, I’ll be right back…

If this doesn't make your mouth water...well, good. More for me.

4.) …Cheers. Here are all of the ingredients to make bonfire s’mores at any given moment:

Marshmallows + chocolate + graham crackers + fire = a g.d. good time, that's what.

5.) This is the light cover I made for my craft room. Yeah, that’s right, craft room (a.k.a. why my future children will be living in the shed):

Cheese-tastic.

6.) Here is my dog, Uncle Jesse’s, monogrammed L.L. Bean bed. I know I should be embarrassed, but I’m not. I’m proud. So proud. (I mean, c’mon. You’re allowed exactly 10 characters, including spaces. It was meant to be.)

The kind of happiness only money can buy.

I know. I don't take him seriously either.

7.) This is the comment my husband just made:

“Do you wish your whole life was blogging? You wouldn’t have a blog if you didn’t have a life, though.”

…Oh, what’s that you say? You’re dying to see my craft room, especially the stripes I painted on the walls myself? Well, okay, if you insist. Here it is!

Julie, you are SO creative! Why thank you, Julie.

  1. Very cool stuff and nothing to be ashamed of. I have a casual collection of lighters (most don’t work), DVDs, old t-shirts, camera stuff, etc.

    • Yes I’m definitely living the guilty pleasure life loud and proud! I like lighters, too (even though I don’t smoke)! I actually collect shot glasses, though I’m long past measuring out my vodka, hahaha 😉

  2. Love the pics – very cute. Yes, I hate the boring months too… when I get a month that’s particularly lame – I just re-use a picture from a previous month.

    Your hubby is adorable.

    • Thank you so much! And my husband agrees with you wholeheartedly re: his adorableness.

      I am always tempted to do that with my calendars, too! For some reason a weird superstition kicks in and I never do. You are helping easy my fears, though. I mean, really, what are the chances the month will keep repeating itself if I use a previous month’s picture, or that I’ll lose a month if I skip ahead a picture? …Right? Oh no. Have we already had this conversation? 😉

  3. You sold me on the vodka and the s’mores…but chopped spinach?

    ANd that Bean bed is the coolest thing evah! love it

    Your husband is right (you can tell him I said so, but only this one time…)

    • hahaha That’s so funny, I almost moved the spinach out of the way [to take the picture] for fear it would undermine my guilty pleasure credibility! I actually LOVE spinach. I eat it (frozen or fresh) whenever I can. Hey, so, we’re still cool though, right? LOL

  4. Very nice there, Jules!! I must commend you on all of your special guilty pleasures. I’ve always wanted to go to Medieval Times. My oldest daughter has been and she thought is was a blast. Nice painting and craft job! You have mad skillz! 🙂

  5. I’m glad you have an emergency s’mores kit. Most people neglect that and should the worst happen, find themselves s’more-less.

  6. I love that the vodka is right next to the Poppy’s Pierogies (we buy Mrs. T’s). Also, I love love love your stripes. My best friend gave me a golden snitch for my birthday this year (that would be my 39th birthday).

  7. Harry Potter wall calendars are the best. I have one! And I truly love this blog idea, I forgot to say this in my other post!

    • Thanks SO much, Brianna (I think/hope it’s Brianna based on the email address that’s showing up in my Comments section)! That really means a lot! I can’t tell you how much I enjoy blogging about my [endless!] guilty pleasures.

      I can’t wait to see what 2012 has in store, calendar-wise. I might have to go Glee all the way. …Will Harry mind?
