    I love Coach purses. I also can't drive by a Mcdonald's without stopping for a large sweet tea ($1.00). I am addicted! The third thing that I am held hostage to is the claw machine game, especially the one at Wal-Mart. In a week's time I got 5 stuffed animals on $3.00 worth of play!

    I LOVE sundresses. I own way more than what is practical for a young woman from Minnesota. The other day I actually just bought a new one. It was a cute little red wrap dress I found on the clearance rack at Old Navy for $7. I was proud of myself...

    It. Is. SO. Good.

    Seriously.

    I've got a lot of Hawaiian students, and several of them have made me huge batches of the stuff because they hear through the grapevine how much I love it. :lol: I'll never say no to a good (or even halfway decent) musubi!

    Another one of my former students is Korean, and her family makes something similar but different. It's called kimbap. Still uses rice, spam, and seaweed, but it looks more like a sushi roll. Her mom would make me rolls from time to time. :wub: I really miss having that student in class! :lol: She's in college now. I should tell her to come visit me and to bring some kimbap while she's at it. :haha:

    I've had kimbap! We have a high Korean population...my students love teaching me the names of their snacks! Once a mom made a big container of bulgogi for me to ake home to dh and sons...I'm a vegetarian so they'll make me veg dumplings.:D

    So I cleaned out my pantry today...evidently I have secret obsessions that I was unaware of....multiple boxes/containers of:

    Cocoa powder
    Tea
    Tuna
    Rice
    Graham crackers
    Nuts
    Corn meal...really? I must buy every time I need it which might be twice a year...


    My pantry looks all shiny organized now though!

    I do that with sage every Thanksgiving. Although probably after a year it needs to be new! I also seem to buy multiple bottles of ketchup frequently. Stupid sales!

    My other guilty pleasures:

    Food Network
    Manicures and pedicures-and not just the express ones. The deluxe full price ones.
    Taking way too many vacations every year. I'm addicted.

    Too funny about your pantry, czacza--when I clean out mine on the weekend, it will likely reveal an obsession with salad dressing and snack crackers (for my kids).

    I LOVE spam musubi and kimbap! BF and I were just discussing the merits of kimbap last night. We both love Korean food in general. When he surprises me with spam musubi from the nearby Hawaiian restaurant, we act like it's expensive jewelry. :D

    My biggest one has to be eating out. I am obsessed with trying new foods and restaurants. Not easy on the wallet!
    Also TV shows. We don't even have a cable hookup, but I watch tons of shows on my computer. Good and bad ones. Especially in binges. :rolleyes:

    I can relate to that one. Other than that, I really need to spoil myself more often because all the things I like to do/buy don't happen too often.
