Pinterest picks

If you spend any time online, you've probably heard of Pinterest, a visual bookmarking site filled with pie-in-the-sky ideas for home decor, recipes, crafts, style tips, and amusing pictures.

If you haven't ventured onto Pinterest, you might just be better off. It's a rabbit hole and total time suck. "I'll just spend 5 minutes..." :::fast-forward 2 hours later:::

But it is really pretty, even if I never follow through on 1% of the stuff I've "pinned."

Anyhow, I wanted to share a few of my favorite "pins."

Turn your toaster sideways to make grilled cheese?! BRILLIANT!

This speaks for itself. Heh.

I spent about a half-hour today looking for a local craftsman who could turn Em's crib into a bench like this. Her crib is a dropside. We won't be using it for our next kiddo, and we can't donate it. I love the idea of doing something sentimental like this.

Food that looks like other food? Sign me up! These bacon & eggs are white chocolate, yellow M&Ms and pretzel sticks!

If you must, you can follow me on Pinterest here. But don't say I didn't warn you!


  1. you know you can get your money back for the crib? We got a full refund on ours but wow, that is a good idea!

  2. I love the crib-to-bench idea! Ours too is a dropside which Wyatt still sleeps in. Bad parents but with just a couple months to go on it, I think it will be fine. And the Reese Withoutherspoon thing made me laugh out loud. Too funny!

  3. i like the color of the bench very much. but you already knew that.

  4. ok I am in love with that grilled cheese toaster idea!!
