Pinterest Addiction

Yes, I have a problem. I LOVE PINTEREST. I'm pretty sure if your on it... you love it too! Not only have I found cool DIY projects, I have printed out LOTS of recipes. Mainly for baking. I'll have to post things as I create them. I love to cook. Baking is usually something I just stay away from. Not sure if it's because I'm scared to bake, or I'm scared that I'll eat everything I bake. Pretty sure it's the last one. ;)

This morning I ran to the store and I went in for a few items. I left with baking goods. I left my grocery list at home and wondered into the store... hungry and pregnant. I came out with the following (just a few items pictured):
So, I will be baking when Jake goes down for either his last nap, or when he goes to bed. I rarely can bake with Jake around. He LOVES to open the oven. And open any drawer or cabinet for that matter. I have childproofing on everything... but, the oven. I haven't found anything that looks like it'll work. I need to look into something for that. Anyone have something they prefer for oven proofing?

This week on Pinterest I made this:

Materials used
- Hole puncher
- 1/2" rings (I could only find the big ones at Michael's. I bought the perfect size off Amazon.)
- Christmas cards
- To make sure you punch them in the right spot every time I used the first card as my guide. Slide the rings on (I used 2 rings), and there's your book! :)
I had to combine 2009/2010. I had all of our 2009 cards saved, and only kept family cards/pics for 2010. So, I just blended them. It's a cool little coffee table book. I'm so glad I found this on Pinterest. I have lots of craft materials that I have bought for more projects, plus my Christmas wreath will be made the weekend of Thanksgiving. Thinking I might have a field trip to Michael's and then back to my house for assembly with my girlfriends. Please message me if your interested!

So far this week Jake and I have outside quite a bit. The weather is great, so we have been taking advantage of it. I LOVE OUR NEW BACKYARD! Jake loves the swing set. He points to it out the window everyday... so, I put him in it!
 I'm growing mint, rosemary, bell peppers, zucchini, and pumpkins. Here are a few pics:
 My little guy can be so serious. He is learning his ABC's. :)
 He still laughs like crazy at that dancing monkey I bought!
Make it a great day!

  1. It kind of cracks me up that you bought EVERY baking ingredient there is! Did you have nothing in your pantry?? LOL.

    Also, YAY for backyards! That swing set is awesome!
