Pinterest Made Me Cut My Shirt...

I tried my best to stay off of Pinterest. I really did. I would just take a peek here and there. Then one day I needed a quote to go with my post and I wanted it to be all "prettied up". I knew where to turn...Pinterest.

That was the turn that has led me down a path of crazy. Now I turn to Pinterest for recipes, hair styles, garden designs, home decor...

Pinterest is full of LOVELY!

Lovely things that I will never be able to recreate because I just don't have the vision or let's face it...the energy. Like this outdoor party...



Lovely places I will only dream of going because I'm pretty sure I would need a lot of shots before going some place like this and I would be freaking out that the cave would collapse around me. Like this swimming cave... 



Lovely foods that I would love to eat but only if someone else did all of the prep work, cooking, serving and clean up. Like this plate of deliciousness...

Lovely outfits that look so simple to put together. Lovely outfits that I would love to wear but can't stand shopping, trying clothes on or the fact that when I get to the store I can rarely put an outfit together that even looks as simple as this...

Lovely birthday parties that would make any little girl squee with delight. Like this amazing woodland fairy themed party...



Yes, I know that there are plenty of photos that are of your everyday backyards decorated for a cookout that scream, "We know how to party!".

Yes, I know that there are plenty of photos that are of the standard family vacation in a regular hotel on a nice beach without broken beer bottles and hypodermic needles.

Yes, I know that there are plenty of photos of that are of food that I can actually prep, cook, serve and clean up without much trouble (notice I didn't say that I still wouldn't be complaining about having to do all of it).

Yes, I know that there are outfits that are simple to probably copy in a cheaper way with little effort but those aren't the ones that make me say, "Oooh & Ahhh" and running to the mall.

The birthday party photos though...will someone please start pinning some regular ol' house parties with crepe paper, balloons and paper plates from Party City. (Oh, I also need the parents to be not so crafty. I am doing my best to decorate for Bean's birthday party tomorrow and I have stapled one of my fingers, burned another one, fell off of a chair I was standing on to hang something up and cut a hole in my shirt. Not sure how that last one happened but I am going to blame it on Pinterest!)

What are your favorite things to swoon over on Pinterest?

I guess I am an anomaly in that I don't go on Pinterest. I want to love my life as average and ordinary as it is and I think seeing all those amazing images would set me up to be ungrateful.

I think they are beautiful images and if you can gain creative ideas that is wonderful, but it's not a good direction for me personally.

Good luck with the party and stay away from staplers!

I'm kind of with Marie. I already know there are lots of things to see, do, make, buy, fix, visit, cook, eat, decorate, and furnish out there that I can't afford or cannot do. I'm not so sure that I could stand knowing how very far behind the pack I am! lol!

I try to stick to recipes and crafts. There is just too much to look at.

I am slowly working my way in, but I am so afraid that it is going to suck all my time that I can't just jump in!

I agree though there are some pretty things.

We are having Golden Boy's birthday party tomorrow. Not much decorating to do for a 10 year old boy party!

I find it relaxing and inspiring and fun! It doesn't make me wish I had all those beautiful rooms that I see...it makes me inspired to create one of my own with what I have! LIke a reading nook! I'm kind of obsessed with them right now...maybe I should call it my laptop nook ('cuz I read on it..haha) My mind is all ablaze with thinking about where I can put one in our home. I created a 'lil office for my kids in their walk-in closet that was just a wasted space full of crap!

Wow....long-winded comment. Guess you can tell I kind of like Pinterest...just a 'lil... *wink*

This made me laugh. :) I'm not on Pinterest, but I might just join so I can post/pin/whatever crappy pictures so you'll feel better. It would probably make a lot of people feel better. I know! Let's start a movement! Oh, wait. I just saw your pictures of your daughter's birthday party. That was way too cute. You're going to have to work on your crappiness factor.

Oh yes, lovely and swoon-worthy and (one more) time suck.

Le sigh. I love it, too.
