Random Thursday - I'm Addicted To...

It’s Thursday which means we’re one day closer to the weekend!  It also means it’s time for another Random Thursday topic.  Lately the topics have been really fun ones for me to write about and I’ve really enjoyed this awesome link up with Em, Lin, and Meg!

First of all I would like to say how thankful I am that I have never battled any real addictions to anything like drugs or alcohol.
But on to the fun stuff which is what I am addicted to.
The very first thing that came to mind was Mountain Dew.  I even mention it in the blurb about me and my blog on the top of my side bar!  Caffeine is the real culprit here though.  I do get a headache when I don’t get my daily dose of caffeine.  Mountain Dew is just the way I choose to get my caffeine more often than not.
Hoodies are another addiction.  I don’t even want to begin to try to count how many I have.  9 times out of 10 when I go on vacation and am looking for a souvenir of my trip I end up with a hoodie.  My trip to Maryland was a prime example; I already had a NCIS sweatshirt in hand but wanted to get something that said Washington D.C. on it.  I was hemming and hawing between getting a t-shirt and a hoodie.  I truly love hoodies so I wanted to get one but decided since I already had one in my hand I didn’t need another and it helped that I didn’t like the Washington D.C. hoodie design as much as the t-shirt and I had to make sure all of my purchases would fit in my carry on in order to get it all home.
You could probably say I have a slight addiction to nail polish as well.  I have plenty of nail polish and I love to go look at it in stores.  Thankfully I use great restraint and don’t buy some every time I take a peek at it.  Funny thing is, I don’t particularly enjoy doing my own nails, probably because I’m not very good at it.
Books are another addiction of mine.  I have a lot and like with nail polish love to go look at them in stores.  The addiction has probably worsened since I got a Kindle 2 years ago for my birthday.  Luckily a lot of the books I read on there are free ones but I do spend my fair share of money with it as well.  It’s especially easy to spend more money than I should with the ease of the 1-click purchasing system since I have my Amazon account linked to a card.
Thanks Em, Lin, and Meg for hosting another great week of Random Thursday!

What are you addicted to?


  1. I have an addiction to books!

  2. I am addicted to books too. I have so many but I can't leave the bookstore without buying a new one. :)

  3. I FORGOT NAIL POLISH! *face palm*

    Totally with you on the books. When I first got an e-reader I couldn't believe how expensive e-books were! So most of the time i'd still rather buy the physical book... and like Katrin, I can't leave a book store without buying one. I also can't walk past a bookstore without going in, so you see where my problem with shelf space comes from!

    Thanks for linking up with us!

  4. I can totally relate to becoming a cranky monster if I dont get my daily dose of caffeine. My fave? Dr. Pepper...ugh, utterly delicious.

    Oh my goodness, I love love love hoodies. My husband used to say I wore his hoodies more than he did haha. It was true, still is. There's something so comfortable about them. Thanks a ton for joining us this week!

  5. Books are an excellent addiction, imo!

  6. I really need more hoodies in my life. comfiest things ever.
    I need my caffeine. medium coffee one milk two sugar please. can't live without!
    thanks for linking up as per usual! love having you!
