    Sitting on the couch watching TV all day with the doggies and take naps whenever I feel like it.

    I seldom watch TV and hardly ever take naps.

    I watch much more television in the summer than I do during the schoolyear, and I must admit that I've been known to watch some stupid, stupid programming. Sometimes I'll actually catch myself with a frozen grimmace on my face and it's only then I realize I should change the channel.

    My guilty pleasures don't really change when the seasons change. I'll always like: :D

    a cold matcha grn tea Jamba Juice smoothie

    pizza

    Chinese food

    salt & vinegar potato chips

    See's candy

    turkey jerky

    watching TV

    being a night owl

    I just have more chances to do them in the summer! The ONLY thing I can't do when I'm working of course is SLEEP IN!

    Taking a shower every other day. Is that gross? :p

    Confession: I dislike taking showers...please don't hate me, I like to be clean and all, but I hate that it takes up so much time of my day. I take the fastest shower I possibly can, and only fix my hair if I'm going somewhere (thank goodness for naturally curly hair that can dry and look decent on its own!). In the summer, I do the every other day. My skin and hair are actually so much healthier too-not nearly as dry.

    I'm the same way. Unless I work out-then I always take a shower! My husband makes fun of me if I sit around all day on a Saturday and don't take a shower. But if I didn't even go anywhere, I don't know why he cares!

    Exactly farfromhome! If I have bug spray, or I've been in the pool, or I've worked out/sweated a lot, of course I shower, but if I'm just sitting around, nope!

    Sleeping in

    Watching TV (not during the day...but staying up SUPER late after everyone is in bed)

    Reading

    Never enough time during the school year for those things!

    First of all I didn't even know the Maury Show was still on.

    Summer for me- I go back to being full time MOM, but we do get to go to the pool, children's museum.

    I go down to the pool when nobody is there and lie on my back and float and float. It is so peaceful. Ahhhh.....

    I have watched every single thing that interests me on Comcast on Demand.

    napping!

    I also watch some crazy stuff on tv.

    I sing at the top of my lungs and dance around when no one is here, too. Actually I lost track of time the other day I was seriously belting it out when my BF walked in the door. I am sure my face was a little red. lol.

    I like to treat myself to lunch or breakfast out sometimes too.

    I don't think it is gross. If I am not doing anything, I bet I have gone more than every other day. lol. It is easy to lose track.

    Oh, I want to add I LOVE going to the farmer's market in the morning and just being able to talk to the sellers and look around and decide what I want. I still go during the school year but I have to go in the afternoon. Some stands are closed by then or might sell out of stuff, and I just don't have as much time to spend there.

    I also hate showers. But for me, it's an aversion to water.

    My guilty pleasure is going out for lunch and reading while I eat. I love to do that during the school year as well-we're lucky to have an hour for lunch, and I can walk to a ton of food places, but I love not being rushed in the summer.
