Oh, how pinteresting!

I thought I'd participate in a bit of 
Oh, how Pinteresting!
today, in an effort to maintain somewhat of a resolution of blogging more often ;)

I pretty much love Pinterest, both for re-pinning the pretties my friends find, but also for pinning things I find online myself and know I'll have difficulty locating again in the future.
(I am pretty sure I say the word "pinterest" incorrectly about 99% of the time)

Here are some things I've found recently...

Food is one of my favorite categories to "pin" on Pinterest.  An overwhelming number of the recipes I pin are somehow taco-y/Mexican food related. Anyway, I cooked this on Sunday (since I'm writing on Sunday, it's in the crockpot now, haha.  HOORAY for actually making something I found on Pinterest! :)

I thought this family tree was pretty adorable. I pinned this idea for someday....

I just love these prints, found on Etsy. The three I've featured below are the three states where we've lived. I think I am going to order these for our house but first I would like to decide where I'll put them...

Something else I found recently is this DIY project below. It isn't really the style of my house right now, but I just love the way it looks. Perhaps my style is evolving?I dunno...

Here are some other Pinterest "finds" that just made me laugh. Love it :)

Are you on Pinterest? Follow me and I'll follow you back! Happy Monday!

  1. I need you to help me find healthy smoothie options on Pinterest! {Blogging about this today actually} I am a big mexican lover also!! LOVE the old door look! You need to check out my "Alcove" board! There are some pretty old wood doors with windows I found that are closet doors!! I would love to do that! RAMBLING! xoxo

  2. Loving that Kentucky pin! And uh - yeah, clearly we both have Target problems!

  3. Pintrest is taking over my life! Getting so many baby room ideas from it. And dinner recipes! Love that old door.

  4. I love the state prints, and I also pinned the vintage door at a coat rack picture. :) I think we must be on the same wavelength, because I totally shopped solely for a Pinterest recipe yesterday at Kroger. Better Homes and Gardens Creamy Ranch Chicken, took about 30 minutes, very tasty, and just under 500 calories/serving (makes 4 servings). :) I love reading your posts!

  5. I love love love the Kentucky print! I am going to have to look into that. Pinterest is so addicting. I try to limit my time on there, but it is so fun looking at everything! It makes me feel creative when I'm really just sitting at my comp for hours. Ha ha I love the last picture you posted, I am a HUGE sucker for Target and probably could live in that store. Lol

    Hope you have a good week!

  6. Those pins are great! Love the Kentucky sign from etsy, as well as the last image about Target (ain't that the truth). I'm on Pinterest, but have yet to try it. I guess I've still not wrapped my head around how to do it, so I head back to my blog. I guess I'll get there eventually.

  7. I actually have that chili recipe printed out but have never made it. Skinny taste is the best. I have the unicorn bike picture on my desk at work, love it! And also wish I had that bike...

  8. I'm always looking for healthy crockpot recipes. I will def try this one! Thanks for sharing! :)

  9. Wow.. Kentucky print.. i love that ... so yummy foods you've got there..

  10. Aaaahahaha! The dog poop one just cracked me up! I literally came home an hour ago to a pile of poo on the floor. Oh, Bailey.
