Pin Now - Read Later

I think it is safe to say that Pinterest seems to be coming quite the obsession with many people, women AND men.

For me, I am obsessed with pinning food. For others, it may be fashion, decor, DIY, baking, photography. And if we're being honest, married or not ... weddings.
(That's me on the right - haha)

How often, though, do we spend our day pinning, only to forget what we've seen. Or we remember, we just don't do anything about it.

I am super guilty of this. And I can see it only getting worse with my new iPhone and having the ability to pin 24/7. (Honestly ... I was pinning at 4 in the morning the other day. I may need help).

I've made it my personal goal to make at least ONE dinner a week from something I've pinned on Pinterest. A few weeks ago, I actually planned a whole week of Pinterest meals, and they turned out to be delicious!

I love that it's a new way to make creative dinners without spending hours flipping through recipe books, only to discover that you don't have any of the ingredients. (Although I do still love my recipe books).

I am also making it my goal to do one other "Pin" a week - broaden my horizons a little bit, cultivate my creativity ... or at least use something I've learned.

I will post along the way and share what has worked, and even those that haven't.

Do you create things that you've pinned? I'd love to hear about it, as well as your feedback from my "Pin Adventures."

Let the Pinning begin!


  1. If I've pinned it, I've probably made it! In fact, there are chocolate crinkle cookies in the oven right now! :)

    1. Awesome! Maybe I'm the only one who doesn't always make them, then! lol

  2. I definitely have 5 recipe boards and haven`t made any of them...yet!
