That would make a great thread!

This gets my vote for someone's favorite indulgence as well as my favorite flavor of ice cream.

Frugal by nature so my bi-monthly indulgence is going to thrift stores and finding things I can repurpose for my house. Also buying plants for the yard/garden. Fabric for sewing projects. Art classes. Dark beer, chardonnay, gulf shrimp, fresh produce of all kinds, quality coffee beans, Hagen-Daz coffee ice cream.

My priest had a plaque on his desk declaring "AN INDULGENCE FOR THE SIN OF Selling Indulgences."

DH and I have a Date Night once a week. We’re on tour for most of the year, so we pretty much live in our tour bus, which allows us to wash daily, but not to soak in a tub. On our Date Night, we like to seek out the nicest nearby rec center and soak in the hot tub for an hour or so. After a thorough full-scrub shower, we like to go to the movies. We’re movie buffs and there’s nearly always something good on somewhere!

Cheers,

Mahrie.

Mainly Starbucks Sumatra coffee for everyday use. And occasionally dark beer. Maybe coffee ice cream in summer or chocolate frozen yogurt. Imported cheeses at times. Salad bar salad...enough for two servings.
