Pinterest pin-up party

I can’t even recall the last time I did a Pinterest pin-up party. I love all things Pinterest and have been pinning lots of fun stuff, especially now that Fall is around the corner!

I love Maurice’s. I saw the email with this outfit and went in and purchased the skirt and shirt. It’s cute and the skirt fits really well.


And for some reason, I cannot get enough gray. I guess it’s the new black. I want to buy all the gray stuff. All of it.


I love pumpkin cake, pumpkin pie, pumpkin smell. Ally needs some items for a bake sale so we are whipping up these pumpkin cake balls tonight. They look super easy!


And since we moved last month, I’ve been pinning everything related to decorating, furniture, crafts, you name it. Our game room has lots of wall space, I’m going to frame a section and paint it with chalk board paint.


I painted a few pieces of furniture last weekend. I have a kitchen table that needs to be new again. So, I’m thinking gray top, white base and maybe light blue/teal chairs. My kitchen needs some color. The cabinets are dark brown and the floor is white.

Pinterest pin-up party {March}

It has been forever since we had a Pinterest Pin-up Party! I have been some great stuff and can’t wait to share it with you. I’m trying something new and hoping it works out. Pinterest has an option to embed the pin in the post, but it’s not working well for me. If you don’t see the Pin board then there’s a link to the pin on Pinterest.

I recently started following Megan’s blog at All That Glitters and she has some great style. In fact I ordered the leopard print tennis shoes from this post.


I totally need someone to make this for me.


This Apple Salad recipe is from Tammy at Ginger Mantra. It looks so good and it’s vegan friendly!


I see us eating a lot of salads this summer. This one looks so good. Can’t wait to try it.

I love decorating for Christmas. I don’t have a lot of decorations, maybe I can make some things to add to my stash.

I really, really like these. I made similar ones for fall and year round decor, and really want to make these!


This is so simple and I would have never thought of it.


This recipe looks amazing! I may try it next weekend.



I made this recipe for Shepherd’s Pie last week, it was good!

I ordered this from Maurice’s online clearance. I’m thinking denim jacket, tights and boots!

Of course I’ve been pinning lots of Fall and lots of pumpkin. The Christmas stuff is starting to show up too.

I want to make these. They look so yummy, but looks a little time consuming too. It’ll have to be a Saturday morning for sure.

apple muffins

This recipe looks good too. I’m thinking rice or salad on the side.

pork medallions

I absolutely need to be doing these yoga poses!


And this one is because we’re house shopping/dreaming so we can hopefully put ours on the market next year. I love closets and I’m totally dreaming here, but isn’t this fabulous?!?!?

Here are some of my favorite pins from this month. Some of the recipes I’ve tried. This first one may get done tomorrow!

These Pumpkin donuts look wonderful! I can’t wait to try them.

I went and bought a pair of cobalt blue skinny jeans from Old Navy. That’s way, way out of my comfort zone of black or denim jeans. I even bought a yellow cardigan to wear with it. I’m a little scared!

blue and yellow


I did this. Except I used a hanger for ties, it has about 12 short hooks on it. Got it at Target for less than $5. Got one for mine and Ally’s closet.

tank tops

I made this carrot recipe and they are delicious!


And this is just hilarious!

A few new recipes!

Disclaimer: I am not a food blogger or photographer! I can’t make food look pretty in pictures.

I love all the recipes on Pinterest, but I never know how they are going to turn out. I tried a few this week and thought I’d share them with you. They were a success!

First we made these egg muffin/omelets from Skinny Taste. Her original recipe is here. She uses broccoli. I used spinach instead and added canadian bacon since I had it. I don’t eat eggs much unless it has cheese, meat, salsa and is wrapped in a tortilla! But, I love quiche and this was very close. I meant to add onions, will do that next time. The recipe made 9 muffins. I used the eggs/egg white combo she did. We ate them with hot sauce.



Tuesday I made meatloaf and serves these carrots with it. I had to buy the whole grain mustard since I didn’t have any on hand. I don’t think I’ve ever bought it before.┬áThis recipe is from Daydream Kitchen and the recipe is here. I kept thinking they’d be sweet but they aren’t. But they are sooo good! I did not use as many carrots as she did, we needed a few more.



I made these potatoes, no they are not healthy. But, they were yummy!



I also sort of made this recipe, but I changed it up a bit. I already had shredded chicken on hand that I cooked Monday. I boiled the bowtie pasta, added cream cheese when it was hot so it melted. I had a can of Ro-tel, about 1/2 jar of tomato sauce and spinach heating up, added that to the pasta/cream cheese. Added the chicken and then baked it for a few minutes. It was good, had a little kick with the Ro-tel and a fairly quick dinner since the chicken was already done.

Tried any good recipes lately? Any not work for you?

I pinned a lot of recipes yesterday from Skinny Taste. She has some good looking recipes! Here are a few of my favorite pins from the week.

I tried this dish last night. It works, but my pasta got a little overcooked. I will boil the other ingredients for a few minutes before adding the pasta. I also added chicken I had cooked already. I also used angel hair pasta since I already had it. The recipe calls for linguine which is a little thicker, that might help it not get soggy.

I cannot wait to wear this! Now I just need those brown boots….

This dish looks really good. My favorite part is the tomatoes! Going to have to try it.



Grilled Pesto Chicken Kabobs: these look yummy. I’ll have to get the hubby to grill these soon!

And just because I needed this reminder!

Worked too hard

I’m officially ready for it to cool off! I have seen several early fall outfits on Pinterest and it has me in the mood for cooler weather. Never mind the fact that I can’t pull off said outfits on Pinterest, but I like to dream!

pinterest-party 500x375


Outfit #1: Love it all. I can’t pull off hats, I’ve tried. It doesn’t work for me. Not sure about the skinny jeans and heels but I’m willing to give it a shot!

cute outfit


Outfit #2: Love the polka dots and boots! Feminine, yet casual.

Outfit #3: Love the sweater and animal print ballet flats! It rarely gets cold enough here to layer like this, but it’s so cute!



Outfit #4: This pink and blue is beautiful! Very feminine, looks comfy, dressy casual. I like the whole look!

pink n blue


Outfit #5: Weekend wear, of course. Love pretty much anything Nike paired with Miss Me jeans.





If anyone would like to help me shop/pay for any of these outfits, you would certainly get a little shout out!

I found a few new things this week and I’m still looking for great teacher gifts for the 1st day/week of school!

This looks so cute and easy! My fridge shelves get so gross. Maybe this will be easy to clean??

fridge mats


Mojito fruit salad.

Here’s another idea for a teacher gift. I’m thinking 1st week of school survival kit.

This is so cute! Wonder if the hubby will drill some holes for me….

I’m always trying to think of creative lunch ideas, but it never happens. Maybe this year I’ll use some of these ideas!

And just some inspiration for your Tuesday!

Pinterest is killing me lately with all these projects I want to try! I need to finish the ones I started first. I got all 3 end tables done, but I haven’t started on my desk yet.

pinterest party

These bottles are so pretty! Would be cute for a party, if I ever have one! The original post is in Portuguese, but Google nicely translated it for me.


With school starting next month, I have been thinking about back to school teacher gifts. No, I’m not afraid of bribery. I did pretty good last year with this recipe. This is her last year in elementary school, so I’m thinking it needs to be even better! Here are a few selections so far.



And I’m thinking this for Ally’s back to school party!

popcorn bar

I love this! 35 things I want my daughter to know about girlfriends! I watched her walk to a friends house last night for a sleepover. ┬áHer friend meets her half way and it reminded me of my dearest friend in high school. We did the same thing. Meet in the middle and hang out at each other’s houses. I want her to treasure her friends and know what a real friend is.

35 things

I did try this spaghetti squash recipe, but it’s not quite as good as I hoped.


That wraps up my week of pinning! What did you pin this week?

Do you give back to school teacher gifts? Plan back to school parties?

Link up your posts with us! If you aren’t a blogger you can link up your favorite pins too!

Have a great Tuesday!
