Magazine Addict

I realized this weekend I may have a problem. I'm addicted to magazines. And hubs has a problem too. I was straightening up the house and noticed the stack of magazines on our coffee table is getting rather ridiculous. I think I've always been a magazine addict - I used to spend hours pouring over the pages of Teen magazine, then I graduated into Cosmo in the college years and gave it up for Martha Stewart once I was married and had a house.

Right now we currently subscribe to the following:
Oprah
Cookie
Newsweek
ESPN the Magazine
Martha Stewart
Domino
Self
Vanity Fair
W
Vogue
GolfWeek
Sport Fishing Magazine
and I just signed up for Garden & Gun!
(BTW Right now you can subscribe to W & Glamour together for $35 a year! I love the pics in W - it's such a cool magazine!)
We also frequently pick up copies of the following at the grocery:
Cottage Living
Coastal Living
People
US
What's your favorite magazine?
I think I'd have to go with Vanity Fair.

  1. Sadly, I'd probably have to go with People - or, or on a better note, Health Magazine.
    Came by to say "hi" and welcome you to SITS. Glad you're on board!

  3. oh i'm not sure!! too many good ones to choose from W, Vogue and Vanity Fair are all up there!! You must have the best gym workouts!! I always take magazines for the ellipticals... even if they are old! What an impressive library you must have! :)

  4. My favorite is tie... between People and Martha Stewart. Remind me to come to you when I need something to read!!

  5. WOW! That's a lot of magazines!!! I LOVE Southern Living.

    Thought I'd mention this...

    My friends and my mom and I each subscribe to different magazines and then swap in the middle of each month so everyone gets to read them. It saves us a lot of $$$!

  6. Mine would be Martha...can't give it up!

  7. I think that All You and Real Simple are my favorites, but Glamour gives me my smutness that I need every once in awhile.

  8. I'm really bad too. Right now I have subscriptions to Health, Food Network, House Beautiful, Shape, Self, Southern Lady, Rachael Ray, Coastal Living . . I feel like I'm forgetting some. And then I'll pick up more at the store too. My hubby just shakes his head! Oh, I just ordered a subscription for Gun & Garden and I've never even seen the magazine! Just read good things about it on other's blogs so I thought I'd give it a try.

  10. Southern Living, InStyle, and People are my favorites. We get Domino (R.I.P.), GQ, Golf Digest, and Rachael Ray at our house, too.

  11. I just addicted to blogging, but my husband has quite a few sports magazines around.

    Welcome to SITS!

  12. Oh I could never pick a favorite! I love magazines so much that I majored in Magazines in college - well my favorite is Journalism and Electronic Media with a Magazine Concentration. I helped start one at my college. Magazines are like crack. Those pretty glossy pages and layouts, that typography...drool.

  13. Wow, you win! Although since Domino has folded, you are saving some money there. Replace it with Real Simple -- I promise you'd like it. I enjoy reading Vogue but for fashion news-I-can-use, I turn to Lucky and InStyle.

  14. The O mag.......I read it cover to cover.

  15. I'm a magazine addict, too. My favorite is probably Real Simple.

    ReplyDelete
  16. my favorite is definitely Harper's Bazaar.

  17. I love glamor, cosmo, and real simple!

  18. Oh my goodness, I thought I was addicted, ahaha! I love glossies, Marie Claire, W, Elle, Vogue, Town and Country, Domino {RIP}, Home & Garden, Elle Decor, Martha, I have to stop....they are so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  19. i'd give you a run for your money with the magazines! i get a ridiculous amount as well. it should be embarassing but i'm an addict.

    money mag and lucky are my favorites. so is real simple.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Town and Country is my favorite! I get about as many as you do! If you don't stay on top of it....those piles can get out of control!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Is Cottage Living still around?!? I love that magazine and never see it anymore!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm still crying over the end of Domino. I guess Self has taken over as my gym mainstay. Nothing gets you moving on a treadmill than cover ladies who spring back into designer jeans a month after giving birth to twins!

    ReplyDelete
  23. wow, that is a crazy number of magazines! how fun though, i love them. i just wish i had more time to read them. my favorites? well, the only one i have read lately is real simple. so i will have to say that, i guess!

    i am stopping by to welcome you to SITS, we are thrilled to have you join us!

  24. We (meaning I) get: Real Simple, People, Country Living, Midwest Living, Southern Living, Psychology Today, Runner's World, Nashville Lifestyles, Traditional Home, In Style, Southern Accents, Coastal Living, Cooking Light and Sports Illustrated. whew! I want to subscribe to Vanity Fair, which I absolutely love and buy every month at the grocery store anyway. I think my favorite is Southern Living, with Real Simple and InStyle tied for a close second.

  25. Whoa, girl. Recycle them my way. I'm too cheap to subscribe. I just get everything online these days.

  26. There are a lot of magazines going out of business....sad...a sign of the times. I love W. I do not get it, but I love it.

    Stopped by to welcome you to SITS and invite you to be a part of my giveaway. Jump over and check it out. If you have time read about my "I love being carded!" card swap. Everyone likes "good mail", right.

  27. My friends used to call me the magazine queen. Now I don't really have much time to read so I cancelled a lot of my subscriptions b/c they would just pile up unread. I like to read UsWeekly and Instyle and home decor magazines though when i have time.

  28. Is that you?? Because you look like Christina Applegate!

  29. Domino was my fave but now they are no longer! Damn them!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
