Obsessions?? Me??

I debated whether or not to even join this linky, I'm pretty sure if you follow along you already know my obsessions!!

Bonnie over at Living a Wonderful Life is having this obsession linky. She has a really sweet blog and came up with this fun party:)  I have really enjoyed reading everyones posts and all of their obsessions.  It makes me feel so happy I'm not the only one who obsesses over things. 

So what could I be obsessed with, along with all of these other lovely ladies?? Well your here reading my latest obsession!  Blogging. I don't even know how it happened... One day I had a Facebook obsession, which led to my Pinterest obession, which has led me here!!  I guess then it would really be a Social Media obsession!!

Okay next biggie...hmm...what could it be....maybe...surfing??? (Could you hear the Church Lady?)

I really only started surfing about 4 or 5 years ago and it has become more of an addiction, but let's call it an obsession.  I grew up in Colorado and dreamed about summer time and going to a far off tropical places.   Then one day I went and saw this movie:

I was in love with it and told myself someday I would attempt it. Well about 6 years later while living in California I met my significant other and guess what? He was a surfer!  We ended up moving here 10 years ago and everyone surfed...but me:(  I love the beach and hot days and water, but ....ssshhh...don't tell.... I was afraid of the ocean!!  I couldn't even snorkel when I got here! I would start to hyper-ventilate when I saw anything move under the water!!

So I had to teach myself to be comfortable in the water.  Once I got that down I went out and bought myself a surfboard

 and have never looked back!! (Well I guess I have now;)

My final obsession is shopping!!  Not just any shopping, I am a bargain hunter!! It started in highschool with my mother!  We used to spend our weekends scouring thrift stores, flea markets, garage sales for little treasures.  I get so excited when I find out about a new thrift shop or if there is a garage sale going on down the street.  I also love Ross for great buys and TJ Maxx just came to the island!! What do I buy?? Everything...but I am an accessory junkie!! Shoes, scarves, belts, jewelry, hats....I have to continually clean my closets to make room for all my new finds.  Now that I have kids I love it even more!!

Okay there you have it my Obsession Confession!! Head on over to Bonnie's and link up!


  1. That is really amazing that you overcame your fears and taught yourself to surf, I admire that so much. I love the beach but my deep, dark secret is that I can't swim :(. But I love to shop and my fav. US store is TJ Maxx. Although the clerk gave me the seniors discount without asking on my last visit....not quite eligible yet. We found my daughter's prom dress at Ross for a steal.

    1. Lol, I would have been upset about the discount and then happy:)

  2. Wow. I admire you.
    I have always wanted to learn to surf. I used to beg my husband to teach me back when we were still in High School... it never happened.
    The beach is definitely my "happy place".

    1. Mine wouldn't show me either, he had NO patience!! Baby steps, you can do it;)

  3. Wow! I live next to the beach, I wish I could surf.
    But I can shop! And I am quite an expert! :)

  4. I love the social media explanations! That made me LOL and I might have to steal it! The next time I visit Hawaii, surfing lessons are on my to-do list. I scuba dived last time and that was fun... but a bit scary even at 50 feet!

  7. Thanks so much for linking up! How awesome you overcame your fears! My hubby used to surf but I don't enjoy the ocean water...I think it has to do with not being able to see all of the creatures swimming around you! I'm your newest follower :)
