Things I can't resist


Post idea from Bri at Deliciously Active
Watching Sixteen Candles (see above), The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire, Goodfellas, or Dirty Dancing whenever I happen upon them on TV even though I own them all on DVD.

Stopping for an iced coffee when I'm out on the weekends, especially on my way somewhere and especially if MFD is with me.

Getting rid of notifications on my phone as soon as they appear.

Eating Swedish Fish or Cheez-Its. If you prefer Cheese Nips to Cheez-Its, we need to have a talk.

Putting my dogs in some kind of gear for every holiday.

Buying seasonal nail polish.

Immersing myself in a good book.

Pressing snooze.

Triple checking travel reservations.

Ignoring life if I'm deep into binge watching a TV series...that's why I don't really do it.

Constantly talking about things in the context of my age, and consequently letting people know how old I am...37. Can't help it.

Personalized items, except I always need to argue with people because I want my straight up initials, not my monogram with the last initial in the middle. I do what I want.

Saying just one more thing after an argument is over or a conflict has been resolved if I feel like there's still something about my position the other person does not fully understand.

Being bossy. I excel at telling people what to do or as MFD refers to it insinuating your bossiness.

Singing super loud in the car even though I don't have the pipes for it.

Being realistic.

Checking hotel beds and ceiling corners for bedbugs before my stuff is allowed in the room.

Hoping for the best but preparing for the worst in every situation.

What about you? What are some things you can't resist?

  1. I always watch movies that I own when they are on TV yet hardly ever just pop them in the VHS/DVD player (because I still have both) to watch them on my own.

    I HATED goldfish/cheez-its until I was almost out of high school. I babysat for a family who didn't really believe in junk food & goldfish/cheez-its was as junky as it got so I learned to love them.

  2. Now I need to watch sixteen candles it's been too long (6 months) since I've seen it. I can't resist insinuating my bossiness either.

  3. I can't resist Dirty Dancing, Shawshank Redemption and Mannequin when they are on. Mannequin is on way more than you would think! LOL. Can't resist coffee and oreos. Crispy calamari salad. Charlie Hunnam. The makeup section in any drug store. EW, who the fuck eats Cheese Nips? Why is that even an option??? Gummy bears.

  4. You are way good at being realistic. Me- not so much sometimes. But one thing neither of us can resist is singing loudly in the car. No shame in my game!

    Catching a movie on TV is way better than a DVD. Seems like everyone agrees. I wonder why.

  5. hahahahah yes to being bossy/realistic, checking the hotel room before settling in and awesome 80s movies. if the hotel bed and bathroom aren't up to par, i demand another room.

  6. "hoping for the best and preparing for the worst..." that sums me up in a single sentence! So does being bossy...I guess I never realized there was a huge difference between Cheez Its and Cheese Nips.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I can't resist Dirty Dancing and iced coffee either. And Sex and the City and Jaws and the Brady Bunch (tv show only). All. the. time. I can't resist cherries in the summer...I eat my weight in them every year. And stopping for ice cream, even though I only eat a few bits and then I'm done. Fun post idea! :-)

  8. I always check a hotel room at least 2-3 times before leaving as well, and it works because I've never left anything! And I also triple check travel reservations before leaving :)

  9. I don't even understand why cheese nips exist. I cannot resist delicious fountain cokes, chocolate donuts, and fresh flowers from the farmers market even if I already have some at home. Also, I have a moment of panic every time I'm about to hit purchase on a flight. When I hooked one the other day, I was about to click purchase when something told me yo double check it. Good thing I did, because I had it going from Tampa to Grand Rapids, instead of Grand Rapids to Tampa. I blame the lack of sleep.

  10. Ugh, please forgive the typos in my comment....stupid iPad won't let me fix them.

  11. "Getting rid of notifications on my phone as soon as they appear." YES!! I hate notifications on my phone!! I have most of them disabled.. I HATE voicemails.. Vendors and my Mom love them.. My mom leaves "This is mom, give me a call back".. ZOMG! I see your missed call!! WTFBBQ!! Ok, rant over... lol

    ReplyDelete
  12. I think the only one of these I don't do is buy seasonal nail polish because I suck at painting my own nails!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I always watch Harry Potter when I see it come on TV! Would love to give my dog some holiday gear, but he's not buying it! I have a few holiday collars for him though!

  14. Reading my phone. Hey, it's like a little computer and twitter, facebook, emails have articles in/on them. I need to restock asap when I am low, or God forbid, out of something and always grateful that I can. Grind beans and have the coffee maker ready to go the night before. Putting my coffee grounds in my bountiful garden. Merle Reagle crossword puzzles in the Sunday Inquirer. Drinking skim milk with baked goods, even tho dairy is supposed to kill you these days. Packing stuff or sending drinks with my chickens when they leave here.Putting everything in plastic bags. Bagging ice. Fun read and I could go on and on. Little things mean a lot. LOL Love your MOMMA

  15. It is like fate when you stumble upon your favorite movies. It is insurance to have them on DVD should they never air said movies again. Now with Amazon, Netflix we have additional insurance.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Haha I am right there with you about movies on TV that you already own. For some reason, for movies that I've already seen, I like the option of commercials and the option to change the channel... even though I don't haha! I also HATE seeing any notifications on my phone!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm with you on being realistic, no point in being any other way it just leads to disappointment.

    Also I have to watch all the "Brat Pack" movies when they are on too but Breakfast Club is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I cannot resist the lure of a good 80s movie. Especially The Breakfast Club.

    I cannot resist stopping at Starbucks for a green tea. And I totally discuss things in the context of my age because I can't help it either. Singing loudly in the car is one of my favorites!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ahh, I'm such a notifcation clear-er. I have to listen to that voicemail as soon as possible to get rid of the notification. I don't know how people deal with a full notification bar. It makes me nuts!

    ReplyDelete
  20. the last initial in the middle annoys the buggery out of me. NO. and yes to a good book. my fave thing. i'm like, dont talk to me.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That t-shirt is fantastic!! Love 16 Candles. As I was reading your list, I thought to myself, Wow this sounds just like me. Happy Wednesday!!

    Best, Mree

  22. I loooove all those movies and singing super load in the car sippin on my iced coffe!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That is actually one thing I miss (or not miss) about cable is being sucked into random movies :) Yes, love the being prepared thing...I like to have options, it doesn't mean I expect it to happen :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. "Getting rid of notifications on my phone as soon as they appear" YESSSSS! I cannot have those little numbers beside my email, texts, and phone...drives me crazy.

    I feel really embarrassed to admit this, but I've never seen The Breakfast Club. Judge away.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Cheese Nips are too greasy. I love Cheese ITs, however. As a kid, my dad would call me "last word"...I think you can guess why ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Cheese its are the shiz and they need to get the knock offs out of my face. LOL I swear I could easily eat an entire box.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm now furious that I have no cheez its in the house. like im probably going ot the grocery store jsut to get some

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cheese nips are greasy or something. just nasty.
    and i'd add pretty woman and Forest Gump to that list of movies that i always always stop and watch.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hahah, I actually just found a draft of this blog idea in my list today! I currently have 2 boxes of CheezIts at home- I like to be well stocked in case of emergencies. And can you believe I've actually never watched St. Elmo's Fire or Breakfast at Tiffany's? I should really get on that...

    ReplyDelete
  30. My latest addiction is Hot and Spicy Cheez its (baggy full on my desk for snacking later). I love them. I pretty much agree with all of your can't resists. My Granny got me addicted to iced coffee at a young age, John Hughes is my fave, but I will also stop whatever I'm doing for Norah Ephron. I do not binge watch anything. I don't even think I've ever used Netflix. I do prefer my monogram, though. Only because I have T and T's can be great or suck in a monogram.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Having the last initial in the middle always threw me. I actually don't have a single thing monogrammed. #BloggerFail.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sixteen Candles is the best movie EVER made...Jake Ryan will always have my heart! And you don't even want to know how many times I press snooze every.single.morning. Bossy is my middle name!! I knew I loved you when I first "met" ya!! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm a sucker for seasonal polish...I have got to stop. I mean, surely I have enough to cover every season by now! I've never tried a Cheez Nip, but you make it sound like I'm not missing much. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. bossy should be my theme song. or at least in my house. haha I also belt it out in the car and everyone should be more than glad they can't hear it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. You know I am always down for some car singing. Do you take like a black light to inspect for these bed bugs? I always make sure if there is a comforter that thing gets pulled off immediately!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Omw when I'm into a new book nothing can keep me from it!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Monograms drive me a little nuts. I prefer initials.
    Also, cheese nips don't actually have a flavor. Might as well eat a saltine.

    Oh, the binge watching. I have this weird thing where, after I watch the LAST episode, I must go back and watch the first one again. Just to review character development.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Car singing and dancing. I'm like a mobile broadway show - minus the good moves and good voice! I cannot resist licking the bowls after making brownie batter.

    ReplyDelete
  39. What kind of sick mother fucker would prefer Cheese Nips over Cheez-Its?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Cheez-Its are SO much better than Cheese Nips! Also, I sing all the time and I am definitely not going to get a record deal, ever.

    ReplyDelete
  41. 80s movies are the best. I also love Cheez its - so much cheesier than Cheese Nips!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Cheese Nips are still a thing?! Also yes to preparing for the worst/hoping for the best...Ben calls it pessimism, I call it realism. I always need a back-up plan in case things go horribly wrong!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I dont even know how I missed this post. Anyhoo so much of this is me but I can work on being realistic. For sure.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I try to get rid of notifications as soon as they appear too. Which is also why I'm so bad at responding to emails in a timely fashion. I get rid of the icon and then forget about it until I'm on a computer. Oops!
