Whether you like it or not, you still like it.

Guilty Pleasure (n): something, such as a movie, television program, or piece of music, that one enjoys despite feeling that it is not generally held in high regard.

Aka: The sh*t you like to do that you don't really want people knowing about. Just as a heads up: we all have them. Especially us guys—it's impossible not to. I'm just brave enough to expose some of these pleasures we have, to all of you.

1. Music

(^ Me when "Bad Blood" came out)

Whether it's Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, or Beyoncé—every guy has rocked out to one of their hits in the privacy of their room. Who are you kidding, I know you screamed "Blank Space" in the bar when it came out.

2. Chick Flicks

Deep down, despite constant complaints to your girlfriend, when she forces you to watch that sappy chick-flick, you know you liked it. It's okay—no judging here.

3. TV Shows

"Walking Dead," "Breaking Bad," "Game of Thrones"—yeah I know all you guys love those. But at the end of the day, you still want to be Chuck Bass from "Gossip Girl." I repeat, no judging.

4. Disney

Yes, Disney movies are usually intended for 10 year old boys and girls but, if I say "Let's get down to business..." there is about a 100 percent chance you are shouting "to defeat the Huns!" back at me.

5. Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

You would think that the hottest girls in the world prancing around on stage in their underwear would be applauded by every boy in America, however, many keep their love for this show on the DL. Something about liking fashion shows isn't a big hit (but this one gets the OK from me).

6. Dancing

(^ Me, when I go out)

The casual side-step and clap on the dance floor is cool and all, but deep down you're just waiting until your date looks away so you can twerk a little.

7. Pedicures/Manicures

Personally, I've never done this myself, but I have heard rave reviews from many other boys brave enough to share this guilty pleasure of theirs with me. A nice foot massage can do wonders for the soul.

8. Waxing

We all know those brows aren't natural.


9. Gossiping

Everyone gossips, really. The difference is that boys don't categorize it that way. And we don't really discuss it as that either. A boy's hair is full of secrets...

10. Wine

Wine has gotten swept away by girls and "wine nights" and weird hanging ornaments with writing on them. But us boys can't deny its tastiness, we just don't make Facebook statuses about it.

11. Singing In The Shower

Every boy does this. I don't even care if they say they don't. When you step in the shower you become Usher. That is your confession.

Pleasures are pleasures, guilty or not. Just be yourself and do you. And keep practicing your twerk.

To The Girl Who Still Has Her Mom This Christmas

To the girl with who is blessed enough to have her momma this Christmas.

     To the girl who is blessed enough to have her momma this Christmas, please remember to soak every last bit of it in. 

      Please remember to hug her so tight, that the way she smells is locked into your nose. Listen to all the stories you've heard a million times, like you've never heard a single one. Help her, even if it seems completely silly to you, help her mix that cake. Laugh, oh please laugh. Laugh at all her corky ways, at the way she mispronounces words, try's to be hip and use new found lingo, or how she cusses when she forgot to get the rolls out of the oven but quickly asks the Lord for forgiveness. Remember her laugh, etch it into your brain. Make her happy, if she wants to go riding around looking at Christmas lights down the same streets you've went for years, do it. Don't fuss, take her advice, agree to just disagree on things. It's not worth it. Most importantly, remind her over and over how much you love her. 

     Because unlike you, I'm not able to see my mom on Christmas. I'm not able to see her on birthdays, Thanksgiving, or any other occasion. My time with her is up. Death is the most permanent heartbreak. 

     How I long to hear her voice, her laugh. To feel her tight embrace. Smell, oh god, what I would give to just be able to smell her. I would absolutely love to go riding around for hours while she ohhs and ahhs at every single house we pass. If I had the opportunity I'd tell her just how much I love her, how I'm so thankful for all the sacrifices she made for me. In fact, I'm not sure I could ever tell her enough. 

      Some days I wake up and it still doesn't feel real. Others, I panic trying to remember exactly how she sounded. Because, I don't want to forget. I don't want to forget a single characteristic about her. Not one. 

     Take time, not just on holidays, or special occasions to be with your mom. Even if it's just you two piled up watching reruns of "The Little House on the Prairie", soak it in. 

    You only get one momma. Nobody could ever take her place. She's your rock.
