Top Two Tuesday - Top Two Indulgences

When sitting down to write this weeks Top Two post I had several ideas floating around in my head for what I could consider my Top Two Indulgences. When it came right down to it, these two prevailed.

1. Ice Cream.

I'm a "Go Big, or Go Home" type of gal (in case you hadn't noticed). I admittedly don't buy a lot of sweets (for the house) because a) I hate to work out, and eating sweets makes working out somewhat of a necessity if I'd like to NOT have to buy another wardrobe any time soon and b) when I DO buy sweets I have to hide them from my husband.

I wish I was kidding.

That being said, when I do want sweets I tend to lean towards the Ice Cream aisle. And I have no issue paying for the premium stuff either.

Enter Ben & Jerry's.

Do I care that it costs $5 for an itty bitty pint? Not even a little bit.

Do I care that there are about a days worth of calories in said itty bitty pint? Nope.

Man. Now I want ice cream.

Which leads us to 2.

Now, everyone sit down. I know this is going to be a HUGE shock to you all and I'd like to avoid any injuries if possible (side note: why did Jillian Michaels just pop in my head?).

2. Wine.




And it's not so much an indulgence as it is a necessity of my life.

I don't spend a lot of money on wine. I know what I like. I know what I don't like. I just happen to splurge often on the kind I do like, thus making it an indulgence of my very own.

What am I indulging on the most lately?

I'm a Barefoot Wine Girl. particularly their Pinot Grigio.

I get an extra special thrill when I can find the BIG bottles. On sale. Which is often.

So yes, my indulgences may seem simple to some, but to me a pint of Ben and Jerry's washed down with a glass of wine pretty much spells perfect in my book.

What are your Top Two Indulgences?

I've just recently discovered Ben & Jerry's ice cream (I know, where have I been?? lol) and fell in instant love!! I can find it for less than $3.00 at Winco grocery stores.

I love wine too!! Although I am not one to break the bank on a bottle, either :) The less expensive, the more we can indulge!

Miranda said...

Um, we are the same. On all accounts. Imagine Whirled Peace and a big glass of pinot grig. HEAVEN.
