Sunday-Our day of {Pinte}Rest

I know what you are thinking, "another post about Pinterest", but Sundays around here are quickly becoming our day of Pinterest. We always do our weekly laundry and grocery shopping on Sunday, but...

Since discovering Pinterest, we have added some fun to our day! We loved our Mountain Dew cupcakes, so this past Sunday I assigned Celeste the job of finding another cupcake recipe to try. She chose "Nutella" cupcakes. And let me tell you, they made it impossible for me to stick with my no sugar plan! There was Nutella in the batter, then injected into the warm cupcakes, and also in the buttercreme frosting (the best part). They were AMAZING!

 Sophie wanted to do a special project for her teacher, so we found a tutorial for this fun and cute project:
And I had a yard of jersey knit fabric from SAS that I got for $1.99 that needed to be a comfy skirt:
It's not so easy to photograph yourself, let me tell you!

 Extreme close up! Now, if you see what looks like lint specs, it's not. This brown, creme, and mustard jersey fabric is GLITTERED! Hello $1.99 skirt!

If you want to know where I got all these great projects, recipes, ideas, etc...just click on my "Pinterest" link Here  or on my sidebar where it says "follow me on Pinterest".

I LOVE your skirt! I need you to start teaching me how to sew :)

I also love your Pinterest Sundays! Unlike so many people who just post things they find, I really enjoy that you and your family USE the inspiration you find to make amazing things!!

I'm still giggling at the title to this post, you are witty! I'm also digging those cupcakes and the skirt is fantastic! Well done Lisa and Pinterest.

Well done, you! I try to be a Pinterest "doer" too. Mostly I've made use of the recipes and cleaning ideas, but now I think I need a sewing machine. Or to borrow my mother's... I haven't sewn a thing since elementary school, but your skirt inspires me!
