Pinterest. You’re addicted, right? You pin DIY projects, recipes, home decor inspiration, toddler friendly activities and in general waste hours of your life not doing anything productive. Yeah, I’m addicted, too. I’ve pinned over 1200 things. You wanna see what I’m pinning? Check me out……
I needed Pinterest. I was a serial bookmarker. But then everything just got lost. Pictures help! And when I have pictures I’m more likely to actually get around to making things! I feel more organized. I do fall into the trap, though, where I go on a huge pinning spree without actually doing anything. At least I don’t fall into the trap of pinning million dollar houses that I will never own, though……………
Anywho, I wanted to share some Pinterest projects I’ve recently completed!!!!
I’m a sucker for new recipes. I hate eating the same old thing over and over. I’m always looking for something new to add into the mix. First up, breakfast burritos! This recipe was courtesy of Mom On Timeout. I started making this recipe just as a storm started moving our way. Picture me with a dozen eggs being scrambled, bacon baked, sausage browned, and a lot of cheese at the ready and freaking out that the power is going to go out! Luckily it didn’t and burritos were made!
They were yum! Hubby is loving having these in the freezer for a quick breakfast before work. The original recipe says to cook for 3 minutes, but even with our almost new, usually too high powered microwave they weren’t cooking through, so we had to add some cook time. But I still give them a thumbs up!
Now this is the recipe that got me all giddy! Avocado Chicken Salad courtesy of Becoming Betty. It contained 3 of my favorite ingredients: avocado, lime and cilantro. The recipe calls for green onion, but strangely I didn’t have any on hand, so I omitted it, but I don’t think I was missing out.
This photo doesn’t do it any justice…………because it is day 2 of the chicken salad. And we all know how avocados feel about being exposed to air for a day! But I still devoured it! This could easily become my new go to lunch recipe. And I especially enjoyed eating it on pita, which is a bit of a treat for me! Yep, this one is a keeper!!!
These are the pins I usually have a harder time getting to since they are typically more time consuming, but that’s what nap time is for, right? First up is a dress from A Small Snippet. I found some tank tops on clearance at Gap for $0.99 that I thought would be perfect for this project. And I was right!
I loved the print of this fabric. So colorful and bold! It was really easy to make. I have another tank waiting to be made into a dress as well, but I think I’ll try to find a more flowy fabric for the skirt. This cotton is a little stiff and poofy, so it just makes this pregnant lady look like a blimp. I think I’ll wait until my belly shrinks before wearing it out in public!
On the quick project list were these Jersey Knit Bracelets from V and Co. These were super simple and came together in minutes! And can be done with a toddler in the room without having to fight her off! And because she was so good she got one, too!
Aren’t we cute with our matchy matchy bracelets? Cupcake was super excited mommy made her a “pretty.” At least for a day. And then she stretched hers out and threw it in the toy box. I love my 2 year old. 🙂
So that’s the round up for now. I’ve got a few more projects on the waiting list, supplies on hand to work on here soon and I’ll be sure to share them with you when I finish!
