Follow Friday

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. 
This week’s question –

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

I have so many guilty pleasures...I like to bake (I make cookies and then to try and give as many away as possible so I don't consume them all on my own).  I also get obsessive about a series.  For instance, we borrowed the Game of Thrones season 3 discs from a family member one weekend and finished it in 2 days. At night after my daughter went to sleep...watching til 3am. If I ever let myself become a couch potato, I can sit and watch HGTV for so long that the shows become re-runs.  Same with the Food Network.  Oh, and craft magazines...I used to buy them all the time.  Now I just go to Chapters with my daughter under the pretense of letting her play but read them all while I'm there.  I consider it "literal" therapy....

Curlypow here - my non-book guilty pleasure is looking at knitting patterns and books.  I can lose myself for hours looking at pretty pictures and imagining the finished products.  Perhaps if I spent less time looking and more time knitting I'd have more to show for my time!  Actually I guess that's not really non-book is it?  Oh, and I'm with Christinabean on that binge watching of TV series - Walking Dead anyone?  Although I must admit, I do get a lot of knitting and embroidery done while I'm watching so I don't feel quite so guilty.

  2. I'm absolutely obsessed with the Walking Dead! I just got into it about two months ago and I caught up so fast. I'm an old GFC follower. :)

  3. Hopping through. I'd like to watch Game of Thrones but I want to read the books first. Which means I'll never watch it...

  4. I'm the same when it comes to patterns, but I crochet instead of knit.

  5. I love baking too - but it is no good for my waistline! I think my co-workers are sick of me bringing treats all the time!
    New follower, love your blog name!
