Unwinding with PEOPLE Magazine

A few weeks ago I posted about PEOPLE Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive Issue.  No suprise that Channing Tatum won, am I right?  Well it’s a new week ladies and another man has blessed the cover.  I’ve had a long day.. how about you?

By the end of the day.. or should I say the start of a new day I finally get a little “me” time.  Where I can just sit and finally read a little.  Once a week I like to catch up on all that is happening in the world.  I do this with PEOPLE Magazine.  Who know’s people better than them? ;-)  I headed to CVS and picked up this weeks issue.

Baby girl and hubby fell asleep, dishes are done, laundry is tumbling in the dryer and there’s only the hum of the spinning.  Complete quiet and time for this mommy to unwind! I like to get myself a sweet treat, kick back on the recliner, and savor the few minutes I have before heading to bed.  I like to unwind a bit and it’s perfect while hubby and baby girl are both sound asleep.  This week’s issue of PEOPLE has Brad Pitt on the cover.. Did you know he’s close to 50?  Wow, he really ages well let me tell you!

The first thing I have to read is the cover stories, so yes I had to read all about Brad.  His devotion to his children is beautiful and I admire how much love he has for them.  I love he responded to “Has fatherhood made you a better man?”  His answer.  “Absolutely.  Being a dad takes you right off yourself”

Then I have to read about the latest scandals.. Who’s side are you on with the whole Kevin Clash (Elmo) allegations?  All of it is extremely upsetting.. I grew up watching and loving Elmo and I just hope it isn’t true..

Oh yes, love me some Jennifer Morrison!  She is incredible and I just adore her on Once Upon a Time.  It’s my favorite show and I look forward to it EVERY Sunday.  Hubby knows it’s “my” football.

Then towards the end of my “me time” I saw this.. Gosh! now I need to make meatballs for dinner!  Chris will be happy since they’re his favorite.  I can’t wait to catch up and unwind all over again next week!

    I want meatballs now…!

    I completely agree with what you’re saying… I love my family so much but also live for those moments when I can have me time again, hot chocolate, celeb mag, bit of TV on the background… bliss.

    Ha — I buy People every now and then when I need some “zone out” time — bring on the chocolates and gossip!

    I love the idea of lounging around and diving into People magazine! I’m making meatballs right now and really love Donatella from Iron Chef.

    This is one of my guilty pleasures!!! I don’t think Brad Pitt is all that relevant anymore BUT i do like reading the magazine in general.

    Brad is definitely a hottie in my book! I don’t buy People, but I do indulge when I’m at the orthodontist with my kids :)

      Oooh I have to try that! I always seem to collect the magazines I like but it adds up to more space!!

    I had to keep scrolling back to the Brad Pitt photos! I love that magazine and I like to sit back at bedtime and read it.

    I love having a little “me” time to unwind… it’s far and few between lately, though.
