Tomorrow, I hope to find some garage sale treasures, make bacon, egg & cheese mcmuffins for breakfast, and I need to work on Jamin's year 2 shutterfly book. We got his year 1 in the mail. Unfortunately, I discovered I had listed his birthday in 2012, not 2010. Bad Momma.
This week I got a library card. "Oh, how very mom of you!" Not really. I wanted a free way to read Mindy Kaling, Kelle Hampton and this Christian Gray I have been hearing about. Maybe I will check out some Sesame Street DVD's for good measure.
I already finished Mindy's book and I loved it. I wanted a really light, funny read to kick off my summer reading list and I completely agree with CFC. Her chapters flew by and I finished in one night still having time to host my dad for dinner and put the kids down to sleep. It was a silly little book and exactly what I needed. It makes quirkyness normal- and I dig it.
So, I am still obsessed with Pinterest but I didn't log on for weeks because I was overwhelmed with ideas for dinner and delicious treats. I was drowning in recipes and glitter pens. So, as any rational person would, I abandoned the website, tried nothing new and actually regressed back to a macaroni and cheese from the box dinner. I did put some peas in there for my toddler son so he would get some nutritional value. I'm not a monster.
Well it seems I have pinned approximately 458 food ideas and 321 crafts (rough guess). When am I going to do it all?
New initiative and lame-but-thrilling goal: One pinterest activity or food a week. (great! it'll only take me just shy of 15 years to try out all these things!)
Recently, I had success with Broccoli Bites. And then I tried Yogurt Drops which was an epic fail. The drops are so small they melt instantly. By the time I had given Jamin 3 to eat and was trying to ziploc and get the the rest of them back into they freezer they were a yogurty mess on the cookie sheet. Not practical.
This week I am going to try these Pesto Roll-up's AND frozen banana bites AND Lemon and Garlic Crock Pot Chicken.

Yes, 3 Pinterest recipes in one week. It's going to be awesome and blow my pitiful once a week goal out of the water.
Have a lovely weekend!
