Pinterest is my new favorite website, sorry Facebook…

Pinterest is something I was admittedly late to. I was invited when it first hit its boom. I looked at it and declared it not for me. I did not have time to sit there and scroll through ideas and “pin” or “comment” or “like” anything. I wasn’t having it. Not I, said the duck. And then…something changed.

I can’t put my finger on exactly the moment my mind changed, but I think it was the time I was trying to figure out what to get Shawn for our anniversary (fear not, I have an idea and it’s a good one! And if you know, zip it! LOL). And someone said to check out Pinterest for some gift giving inspiration. So, I strolled on over via my most prized possession iPhone and wah-lah. It was like seeing something for the first time. I was… clicking on images and repinning them, creating boards and getting ideas on things to write about, wear, cook have other people make for me to eat (you people pin a lot of ridiculously good looking food, however I am kitchen challenged, and that doesn’t happen in Anderson Castle). I even found great ideas for home renovations and improvements and things for the girls. It was a wonderland. I wasted spent three hours wisely pinning things, excited about all these new things I was learning and seeing…

And I was instantly hooked. I don’t check it as often as I’d like, but I do try to head over there once every few days and see what my friends are pinning. Or search for a pin. I now know how to do three different smokey eyes! I didn’t know there WERE three different types!! Haha! See what you learn? Also, I now know how to make my own chalkboard paint, braid my hair (later, of course) and have great ideas for family portraits. Will the wonders ever cease?

I have to admit, like Harry Potter (who I grossly underestimated at first), I did not understand how life-alteringly good Pinterest could be. You NEED to check it out, but I warn you: it is a time suck. Just sucks it away like you never knew you had it… craziness, but delicious craziness. Follow me, if you don’t. Pin fabulous things. Pin ALL the things!!

What do you think? Are you Pinteresting? I finally am! And it feels SO good…


And how does this make you feel?
