I'm Such a Sucker!

While cleaning my apartment this afternoon I noticed that there were a few things that I needed from CVS. I didn't need to make a trip to Wal-Mart or Target simply because I would buy unnecessary junk. I knew what I needed and made my way to the store. Only after my bill came up to be way more than I planned, did I notice that I am sucker...while I was driving home, my mind started turning about all the things in my life that I'm a sucker for...

I'm a sucker for "buy one get one..." (aka: BOGO!). During my trip to CVS that was intended to be quick and cheap I found alot of BOGO deals...you know, those unnecessary things I was trying to avoid buying at Wal-Mart and Target!! I mean they had buy one get one FREE laundry detergent! How in the world was I ever supposed to pass that kind of deal up?? Especially with the amount of laundry I do!! Publix usually has alot of BOGO deals that aren't so great...you know "buy one get one 1/2 price." Those deals make me buy stuff that I would never typically buy on any other occasion and make my final bill outrageous!!

I'm a sucker for puppies and kittens! I went to the Humane Society yesterday with a friend of mine who was looking for a puppy. The only reason I did not leave with a new addition to my 'family' was because I already have a zoo in my one bedroom apartment! Picking up those poor animals that have been confined to a cold cage with no one loving on them everyday breaks my heart. They know exactly what look to give you through those metal cages to make you take them home! I got Josie, Shelby and Bruiser from the pound and bought Jake from the newspaper...such a sucker!! My friend ended up buying an Alaskan Huskey/Boxer mix puppy with green eyes that had been in the pound for almost a month and a half! She was so used to being in that cage that she cowered when we picked her up and became extremely nervous when we petted her. As soon as we got her outside and introduced her to Bruiser, we knew she would always be thankful for saving her from that terrible place!

I'm a sucker for heels! Most would agree that high heels are uncomfortable and would not wear them on a daily basis...not me! While I worked at Express in college, I would be on my feet for 6-8 hours a day and did not hesitate to wear my cute heels! Although my feet would throb at the end of the day and sometimes would be callused (ugh!), I still found the strength put them back on that night and wear them out to the club! I am not talking about 10-inch heels or anything...just enough height to lengthen my legs and accent my outfit!! The only reason to exclude heels from your wardrobe is if you are wearing flip-flops on a Saturday afternoon or cute little flats with the appropriate outfit (...but of course...). Don't get me wrong, I don't vacuum in heels...but I most certainly would if the occasion called for it!! Not really...well maybe...aahhh!!

I am a sucker for risque television shows. I know that I should not be filling my head with inappropriate things (..see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil..) but I have a new addiction.

Me: Hi, my name is Breean and I'm addicted to inappropriate television series'.

You guys: Hi, Breean...

The first step is acknowledging my addiction, right?? ha!

A few months ago, I (luckily) upgraded my Charter package and added HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, etc. Ever since that day I have been suckered into Californication, Entourage and True Blood. Honestly, I am not going to recommend that you watch these simply because I don't want you to associate me with their lifestyles, but... maybe you could watch one episode if there is nothing else on TV...but just one episode (good luck!).

I am a sucker for Facebook! Despite how many people "diss" on the social network that has taken over the world (ha!)...I still find myself being suckered into the daily habit of "who's dating who now" and "wow, she looks great after having a baby..!" My mind can't even fathom how people survived without this all-knowing website! Granted, I don't use it to meet guys or new friends, but I do keep in touch with high-school and college friends that I probably would not talk to had it not been for Facebook. I also post pictures for others to view that would otherwise find their final home in a picture album in my closet...but, with Facebook...others can enjoy them and add them to their collections, too! I have had friends that 'knocked' Facebook for years until they eventually joined the club! They have found people they forgot about over the years and are now able to follow the usual "Facebook conversation and lingo" when socializing with the rest of society. Don't miss out...everyone else is doing it!!

My high school reunion probably won't be as interesting though...
Nosy #1: "Did you know she has three kids??"
Nosy #2: "Yeah, I read on Facebook that she is pregnant again!! Old news..."

Well, now that you know my weaknesses...please be gentle while judging!!

I am SUCH a sucker for puppies. I have my hands full with the one I have, but I have (on more than one occassion) thought of bringing home a "friend" for him. I know WITHOUT a doubt, if I were to walk into the animal shelter, I would leave with no less than two or three that I felt the need to save. My landlord would probably kill me. She wasn't thrilled with the idea of me having one. Ahhg...now I have puppy fever and want to go resuce :)

I hate going to the pound, because I get so depressed that I can't take them all home with me. I got my girls at the pound and it makes me sad just to know what kind of life they had before (they were severely underweight when I got them and have DOUBLED their weight in three and a half years). I'm a huge proponent of pet adoption.
