Rules of the tag: List 5 Obsessions/Addictions that you have, and tag back to the person(s) that gave you the award. Post the rules and tag an additional 5 people.
1. Starbucks Nonfat Green Tea Lattes (hot or iced depending on the season).
I try to limit myself to about three of these per week. I am crazy sensitive to caffeine, so at about 1/3 the amount of caffeine as a regular cup of coffee, these are perfect for me. Starbucks recently changed the recipe up a little bit, but I'm still a huge fan. Antioxidant rich green tea + fun color that elicits a lot of strange looks + deliciousness + just enough caffeine = perfection.
I am truly addicted to my Google Reader. I'm not going to tell you how many blogs I have listed on it, because this is a list of addictions and obsessions, not embarrassing facts. Also sad is the number of wedding blogs I still follow, although I'm slowing weaning myself off of them. The empty spots are quickly being replaced by cooking blogs and family blogs and baby blogs and home design blogs!
3. The Bachelor.
What the heck season are we on now, maybe 12? I still can't get enough. This season is especially awesome because they chose a guy who seems like he is actually a decent human being. Anyone else watching? I'm pulling for Jillian.
4. My dog.
I treat this little guy like he is my child, whether he likes it or not (usually not). I talk to him (in the admittedly most annoying voice) all day long if I'm home, come up with a different nickname for him almost daily, and miss him like crazy if I am away from him. My husband thinks I'm slightly crazy, but luckily he loves Duncan just as much as I do. Here he is helping me wrap Christmas presents.
5. Baby names.
We are still quite a ways off on adding an actual human child to our family, but that doesn't mean I can't obsess over names now. My two favorite sources for creative ideas are You Can't Call It "It", and Nameberry. Current frontrunners? Sorry, but I can't share. I live in fear that someone will steal my names, just like someone did to Charlotte on the baby shower episode of Sex and the City. My friend Leisel, who has a fabulous name herself, shares this obsession with me, (along with #3), and she's the only one privy to my secret baby name crushes at the moment.
2. Our Little Haus
4. The Toucans' Nest
5. That Wife
