current clove guilty pleasures 2008


the following are the clove family's list of guilty pleasures.  we are enjoying:



tv show reality tv rocks our world. whether it be bret michaels finding "TRUE LOVE" (translation: ewwwwwwhhh!) or watching the hills in all it's 'non-scripted' glory, we are all gonna tune in. it doesn't just have to be trashy, either--we still love the amazing race & survivor. one of my new favs this year was flipping out--again, how can you lose with something like THIS??

clothing: confession--lately it's been anything with skulls on it. yikes!! or glitter. what's even better is a combo of skulls AND glitter. is there a ten step program for this? fyi i only wear TASTEFUL and REFINED skulls. 





.



food:  russ and mindi  LOVE gas station nachos. we both appreciate it's ooey gooey nacho-cheese goodness even though it's not the cool thing to do.  it's white trash, but we simply can't help ourselves.


restaurant: 



Chili's is the clove family's restaurant of choice and we order it nearly every sunday night.  it's our thing and we don't really apologize.  the chips and queso and salsa will forever remind me of russ.  and katie and chandi and abbey and mia.  our family sure loves eating this downstairs while watching an episode of survivor or the amazing race or lost or sytycd.


store:   target target and target and there was never anybody else in the picture except for target.  this store changed our lives when it came to stg in 2003.  the highly anticipated december 26th day after christmas shopping trips with breakfast at magleby's afterwards were some of mindi's favorite years with friends. and the people who created target are laughing all the way to the bank. with MIND'S money.



celebrity crush: michael weston of usa's BURN NOTICE is a stone cold fox. the man can make bombs out of cell phones and bubblegum, what's not to love? the girls in this family as well as aunt megan are pretty smiiten with this guy.

oh how I love you so :) You make all of those guilty pleasures seem not so guilty :) One of our big quotes from back in the day was "Do I O-ffend?" from Duckie...gotta love that movie!

Super Happy Girl said...

I was almost first :(
Anyway, You do have excellent taste in music. EXCELENTE.

How did we ever watch those 80's movies? Oh I know, my parents didn't know :)

Aimee said...

You're so brave! We have a lot in common...

Megal said...

Michael Weston is a great pick...I definitely agree with you on that one.

For the love of hell you crack me up!!! I am SUCH a JEFF LEWIS lover!!! He is such a nasty beast and that video clip was one of my FAVS!!! He is so freakin picky with his food....ok.....and everything! I want to marry him even though he's gay! Can I just be his friend and meet him?

Also, double thumbs on the gas station nachos and triple thumbs (freaky) on the Chili's chips!!! They are my fav anywhere, hands down and thumbs up!!!

I'm right there with you about Jeff Lewis. He cracks me up so much.

Oh, but I HATE Chilis. Haven't stepped foot in there for years.

Trina said...

Target, 80's movies, and music and reality tv....yes, yes, yes, and yes! You know my stance on nachos with processed cheese sauce. I'm going to have to check out Burn Notice. He looks yummy.

Me and The Boys said...

love this! I agree with all of your guilty pleasures and totally justify every one of them!

Brittany said...

sooooo great! love it all... particularly the nachos and the burn notice.

Sunny said...

FAVORITE SNACK/MEAL: GAS STATION NACHOS, 44 OZ. COKE (WITH THE GOOD PEBBLE ICE), AND NUT ROLL CANDY BAR (THEY'RE ALWAYS 2/$1). I WANT TO WEAR A SHIRT THAT SAYS "DON'T JUDGE ME".

tiburon said...

Oooo all over this one. Just for you. I think I knew all of this about you already...

Christie said...

Great idea for a post! My biggest guilty pleasures are long baths, eating out, running, and "playing with my flowers" (gardening). I may steal this post idea.

Kristi said...

Oooh, look at Michael Westona all hot and smoldery!! I love it!! And LOVE Flipping Out--my husband will even watch it with me because he's is so crazy it's funny. I am lovin your guilty pleasures...

Vanessa said...

Like I told you before, I knew we were soul mates when you said Flipping Out was your fave. I'm just sad that we have to wait a year for the next installment. Have you seen the preview for Real Housewive of Atlanta???? WHOA!!! That should be great!

FYI, your playlist on your blog is awesome. I left it playing while I cleaned. Great selections!

Whitney R said...

OOooooo, love Burn Notice, Flipping Out, the music. Oh how I love music. All kinds. Except twangy country and super nasty hard rap. Is hard rap even a genera? Is that even how you spell genre?

Can't say I like your nacho's much.. but I love the head phones.

One of my guilty pleasures is Charmed. Everyday.

kami @ nobiggie.net said...

Love all the 80's movies...Thanks to my two older sisters!
Love Chili's chips and salsa - Best Chips!!
We differ on the Michael Weston bit...never seen him
And the skull bit...for sure your guilty-ist pleasure. This is a fun one!

Suzie said...

with every new post of yours my heart grows fonder.

Nachos?

Shannon said...

All the reasons why I heart you so!

Omgirl said...

Oh man. I can't believe I had forgotten about that nachos thing. It blows my mind.

Misty said...

If I ever catch up on Google Reader again, maybe I will do this post. Love it and your guilty pleasures are great....except for Chili's I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE that place!

Renee said...

I have such a crush on Jeff Lewis, and hello.. Pretty in Pink is not just a great 80's movie, this is in the top 10 of all time!!! Rave up! My kids even love it, and yes, I know it's somewhat inappropriate. Don't care.
