Pinterest Wins and Fails

You've probably been wondering where I've been lately.  (Yeah - I know, you haven't really noticed that I haven't been blogging much, just smile and nod)  I usually blog during Savannah's nap or right after she goes to bed, but lately my blogging time and been turned to Pinterest time!  Not just looking at pintrest, but DOING pinterest! :)

So if you don't know what I'm talking about - THIS is Pinterest. I think it's best described as an online magazine, only, it's just the stuff that other people are looking at, and you can choose just to see what your friends are looking at!  People bookmark stuff from websites on Pintrest, then you can "repinn" or bookmark their stuff.  It's a lot of recipes, cleaning tips, craft ideas, style ideas, home decorating.... stuff like that.  It's fun.

I've been pinning like crazy lately, and all these ideas have been making my life awesome!  Here's some of the latest Wins and Fails from ideas I got from Pinterest.

I made this for Thanksgiving with my family with the pumpkin I pureed.  Yeah - I pureed a WHOLE pumpkin.  I'll post on that later because I'm super impressed with myself.  Anyway, the fluff was super good.  We dipped apples and cinnamon graham crackers in it.  A HUGE HIT!  And only like 3 ingredients.  

I made these for dinner last night and they were AMAZING! I didn't have all the correct ingrediants, so I subsituted some.  I can only imagine how amazing they would be with the RIGHT things in them.  SO SO SO good!  And you know, sweet potatoes are so so so good for you too!

Cotton Ball Christmas Decor


I don't even want to talk about it.  Just know it ended with Travis saying "Can you please go to Hobby Lobby and get something to put in that frame?"

Spray Paint Everything for XMAS Decor 

These are actually things I did!

I have been spray painting pine cones and sticks like you wouldn't believe. Also painted some vases, candle jars, that frame in the fail cotton ball picture, our old pumpkins on the steps, it goes on.... love it!  

Use baking soda and peroxide to clean pans and glass stove top

Maybe my stuff is just too far dirty and gone to bring it back, but I have scrubbed and scrubbed and I see little to  no change.  I know it's not organic or "safe" but I'm gonna have to stick with good old chemical cleaners for this one.  

There are so many more things, but I just don't have the time.  Plus I'm itching to see what's new on Pintrest today!  Other projects to mention: 

- No Sew Scarf made from T-shirt: Win..ish
- Homemade Sugar Scrub: WIN!
- Buffalo Wing crock pot soup : WIN!
- Avocado Grilled Cheese: WIN!
- Apple Sandwiches with granola and peanut butter: FAIL!
