Thurday Three

Guilty Pleasures

  • Trashy ALL reality shows.
  • Peanut butter and chocolate melted together, oh yummy.
  • Wearing sweatpants in public. Sometimes I pretend I'm on What Not to Wear and make up what Clinton and Stacy would say about my outfit. "Capri pajama pants with STAINS, Teva flip flops, and a deep green Ann Taylor Loft fitted jacket?! Schizophrenic, Ashley, seriously. I don't care if you're just taking your husband to work, people can still SEE YOU."
Companies You Should Support

  • Ben and Jerry's - All around awesomeness. We may have gone to their factory as a part of our honeymoon...
  • Great Lakes Brewery - Environmentally, they ROCK. And Christmas Ale? I love.
  • Whole Foods - Their CEO has an income of $1. ONE DOLLAR. Madness, I tell you, madness!

Jobs I'd Love to Have

  • Postal worker - how fun would it be to walk around all day? No workout necessary!
  • School counselor - I would love to work in a school, but I don't plan on being a teacher. Perfect solution. Now if only there was more funding for school counselors...
  • Stay at home mom - what? PJs all day, TiVo, other'd be AWESOME.


  • Impatience - kind of a sign of me not trusting God, dontcha think?
  • Worst sense of direction known to mankind. My siblings who can't EVEN DRIVE make fun of my penchant for getting lost. I could get lost in a parking lot. (okay, I'm only exaggerating. Or not...)
  • Jealousy. I see that green devil too much!

Things to Keep in Mind When Shaving

  • Reusable razors are better than disposable (although I've been using my disposable one for, oh, 6 MONTHS. I'm cheap. And lazy.)
  • Don't keep the water running. I use a cup full of water and just rinse my razor off in that, so I can turn off the water.
  • Use plain soap or natural shaving cream - regular shaving cream is all full of chemicals, no thank you. PLUS, a bar of soap has no tin dispenser, so less trash. Score. (PLUS, one less thing to buy! Always looking out for the laziest option, I am.)


  • I steal all of the chunks out of the ice cream. (Shh...don't tell Mike!) They are so freaking delicious. I guess I could just eat brownie batter and cookie dough straight up, but there is a thrill in extracting them from ice cream. Oh yeah. Mmm.
  • I weigh myself way too much. I'm kinda obsessed with staying a certain weight.
  • I don't watch American Idol. Like, ever. I know!


  1. 1) I LOVE Great Lakes Brewery. Definitely a fan of Holy Moses Ale and Edmund Fitzgerald.

    2) It sounds like you're a fan of Ben & Jerry's Half Baked... that's my favorite. :-)

    3) I would LOVE to be a stay at home mom!!

  2. Tell me you watched Rock of Love with Brett Michaels. Tell me. Because if that ain't trashy reality TV, then I don't know WHAT is. (I love me some Vh1 reality TV; I can't lie...)

    And I'm right there with you on all three of those "flaws". Seriously.

    Oh, and the fact that you have an entire section titled "Things To Keep in Mind When Shaving" totally made me laugh. You're so funny! I love it.


C'mon, leave a comment. They're the best part!
