Things I love...

The other day Anne had a post on her blog titled "Things I Adore But Probably Shouldn't."

I loved this idea and decided to steal it.

Things Rachel Loves But Probably Shouldn't...

1. McDonald's ice cream sundaes with hot fudge and peanuts. They're only $1 and I'm a sucker for a cheap and delicious snack!

2. Talking in weird voices and saying crazy things to Layla. If there was a camera crew around, I'd be humiliated.

3. When members of my 5th grade team are out on Wednesdays and those of us who are there decide to not meet for our weekly collaboration during our planning.

4. Going to the gym on Sunday afternoons just so I can watch reruns of Kendra's show on E! No one should use Kendra as motivation to work out, and yet I do...

5. Listening to the Rap/Hip Hop station on my way to work in the morning. Something about listening to "Black and Yellow" really pumps me up for the day ahead of me.

6. CocaCola....not diet. Just the original stuff in the red can. I've tried to cut back to just one on the weekends. Doesn't mean I love it any less, though!

7. Buying serving pieces and bowls and mugs that we have no room to store. I go to the local flea market and I just can't help myself.

8. Ketchup on my mac and cheese. Don't judge.

9. Stalking people on facebook. Good friends, random friends, coworkers...I love a good facebook stalking sesh.

10. Purposely burning my popcorn and toast.

  2. McDonald's hot fudge sundaes are the absolute best! I can always justify them for a dollar. The ice cream is just so good!

  3. Love this, I love burnt toast, McDonald's sundaes, and ketchup on anything. We also have a dog named Layla!! :)

  4. Not juding on the mac & cheese and ketchup combo. My husband loves it that way, too.

  5. This is one of the best blog posts I have read in a long time. I am always talking in weird voices.

    I love Kendra, I watch her show religiously (it is my guilty pleasure). I on the other hand watch it on the couch eating cookies, so you win.

    And burnt popcorn. Yum!

    Have a fabulous day!

  6. Oh I eat ketchup on my mac and cheese too - it's so good! In fact, when I lived in Canada everyone did it - and then when I moved here, everyone thought I was disgusting. But it's delicious so I refuse to stop doing it.

  7. Listening to rap/hip-hop...even though I'm definitely not really a fan...has some sort of weird calming effect both on my way to work and going home at night! However, when Hubby gets in the car, I'm always quick to turn the station! I can't give away all my secret obsessions!

  10. I might have to do this post. I've loved reading yours and Anne's. I agree on the FB stalking. I am a pro. But I'm confused about why you burn your toast and popcorn?!?! It made me laugh though.

  15. Agreed on Number 3. If ANYONE is out I suggest no meeting! :)
    I just might need to make a list like this! PS- Teacher Talk Thursday on my blog. BE THERE! :)

  16. So many reasons why we are friends. So many. Ketchup is my crack. So is Coca Cola in the red can. And, McD's ice cream.

    We all talk to Frisco is funny voices and have so many nicknames for him it's ridiculous.

    Take me with you next time you go flea marketing...you know, that way I can get stuff that we don't need or have room for, too. ;)

  17. I agree! I love burnt popcorn and toast. Mmmm... I have yet to try the McDonalds icecream, but a similar one is the Dairy Queen peanut buster parfait. I love those. I could eat them until I made myself sick. So delicious!

  20. I love, love McDonald's sundaes for $1! I eat them way too often, although I always opt for the caramel ones.

  21. OMG!! I love mac and cheese with ketsup~! I was just telling the principal at school today and she got so grossed out!

  23. Great list. I am so with you on #10 and enjoyed a little "Black and Yellow" on my commute home today.

  24. Burnt toast...yes. Burnt popcorn...NO NO NO!

    I love any excuse to get out of a collaboration or planning meeting! Sometimes I feel like if I look at any more data on what my kiddos need I will scream.

    I also am drawn to serving pieces that I don't need. I put them up in a storage closet and forget I even have them!

  25. Hey...whatever motivation works for the gym I'm all for it! :) The other morning I was watching Adventures in Babysitting on the elliptical :)

  27. This list was totally weird and totally awesome. I love it. I have my own set of quirks. I am scared to start listing them all though.

    And McDonalds? Major yum. I need a quarter pounder now...
