magazines

I recently read an article that talked about how a new study said that one's personality could be reflected by what magazines they read. I thought when I read that...How profound is that? Wouldn't common sense tell you that a person would read magazines that reflect their interests?
Anyway...last night as I was reading one of my favorite magazines I remembered this and started thinking of my favorites. I'm pretty much a magazine junkie. I love to read them and read several of them. One of my favorite things to do is get a new magazine, fix myself a warm bath, and read it cover to cover......that is my excuse to myself to take a soak in the tub.
My favorite magazines though are

People, Real Simple, Wonder Time, National Geographic, & Quilter's World......so what do these say about my personality?

I think People pretty much says I'm shameless about what I read. Yes, I do love reading the celebrity gossip and I'm not ashamed to admit it!

I love to read National Geographic when I'm feeling smart.....which always takes longer to get to and longer to read.....but I do always find it so interesting. When I read it I think of myself sitting with a group of scholars and saying something like, "Oh yes, I found that article about memory and the brain quite riveting."



Real Simple is always a delight to get in the mail. I usually read it the first day I get it. I always love the tips, the recipes, and the articles. I also love thinking that one day my house will be as organized and beautiful as they always are in that magazine.

I think I love Quilter's World because I have suddenly been overcome with a strange addiction to quilting. Maybe my grandmas' spirits are trying to live through me in this crafty way? Who knows? I love to look at quilts, patterns, cut out fabric, and finally make them. It has gotten so bad that when I got this month's issue of Quilting World I told Matt that I was not going to look at it until I finish the quilt I have under my sewing machine right now. An hour later...I'm sneaking my new Quilter's World to read upstairs while I take a bath. Yes, I got caught but isn't this pattern so pretty---I can't wait to get started on it!

My final favorite mag is Wonder Time. My friend Kara told me about it a few months ago and since then I have been hooked. I think it is the best parenting magazine ever! I love the articles, the emphasis on learning ( in a natural way not with all the jazzed-up toys and tools), pretty much everything about it. I can really relate to the articles in it. Look at the article featured on this month's cover...

Do you think one is obsessed with blogging when they blog about a blog article in a magazine?
Yep, enough said.

I love this post. My one and only magazine is Real Simple. That is me in a nutshell, real and simple.
