....to Pinterest or not to Pinterest

I *heart* Pinterest.  

Perhaps in an unhealthy way, in fact.  

The picture ideas, colors, decor, baby ideas, useful hints, recipes, quotes....you name it.  Do you Pinterest?

A few weeks ago one of my all-time favorite bloggers, Sherry from Young House Love challenged her readers to actually make what they pinned on Pinterest.  What, you're not just supposed to drool over the pretties you find?! While I cannot show you the beautiful crafts or decor projects I have tackled thanks to my 'pins', I can share with you my most favorite recipe of the summer.  


I actually believe the recipe came from Pioneer Woman originally [don't all good recipes start with Pioneer Woman?!], but I linked over to the Craving Comfort blog to get the details.  I have to be honest - it's a little time consuming, but it is WORTH. EVERY. MINUTE.  Within both PW and CC, you will find another recipe for sweet cream, but I will go ahead and give you a delicious shortcut... Coffee Mate Natural Bliss - Sweet Cream.  This makes the iced coffee even better!  I promise if you invest a little bit of time making this over the weekend, you will be thanking me over the next few weeks as you savor your hard-earned yummy goodness :)

Enjoy!

A bite out of [our reason for going to] the Big Apple

Perhaps you remember the time we went to NYC but couldn't disclose why?  

Well, folks, the wait is over.  We went to NYC for....

....Drum roll please....

....This may only be exciting for me....

....Drum roll again....

The Newlywed Game!! 

I'm not going to give you all of the episode (watch for it on the Game Show Network because re-runs will run until December!), but hope you enjoyed some highlights :)  and please pay special attention to my sweet hubby talking about this very blog....or blog, blog, blog, blog....as he lovingly says!





We had so much fun, even if all of my self-confidence was totally kind of shot based on A) having the most obnoxious laugh, B) playing with my bangs like they're about to run away and I have to catch them and C) looking 10lbs heavier than I think I do in real life (every girls worst nightmare!).....did you pick up on any of the above listed issues while watching?  

Hope you enjoy, and make it a great day!

So What! Wednesday


So What!
{1} ....if I'll be 2 years away from 30 in just 1 month.  30 is the new 18 right?!  I'll just keep telling myself that.

{2} ....if I can't stop thinking about the watermelon I have awaiting my return home this evening.  I. Love. Watermelon.

{3} ....if I am going to Vegas for my 1-year wedding anniversary.  I happen to think renewing your vows in front of Elvis would be not only memorable, but fun! Don't judge.

{4} ....if my hair is graying at a speed I can't keep up with.  Did I mention I am nearing 30?  Special thanks goes out to my body for reminding me of this daily! 

{5} ...if I think I am the favorite Aunt of all my nieces and nephews.  I don't have my own kids.  Sue me  ;)

Make it a great folks, and go link up with your So What! thoughts!
