My life according to my pins
Winston loves to eat and he takes his sweet time doing it. This results in several half hour increments where I am required to sit still, so to keep entertained I indulge in the guilty pleasure of Pinterest. In order to justify my wasted time, I try to only pin things I'm going to actually do/use/make/read. Here are my recent faves:
DIY Dry Shampoo: I always heard your hair falls out after having a baby and I thought I could beat the system but unfortunately I did not succeed. I read somewhere that the key to keep from losing it is to wash it as little as possible. Plus, I only get a couple free hours to do what I want each day, I can't spend it blow drying and curling my hair just for it to get barfed on again. I had tried the baby powder trick in the past but it always turns my hair gray and looks nasty so I would give up and wash it anyway. A few weeks ago I found this recipe for dry shampoo for brunettes and it has changed my life! I now only wash my hair every three days and use this the rest of the time. Love it.
Half Marathon Training Schedule: Winston and I are on week 4 of this schedule getting ready for the Thanksgiving Point Half through the tulip festival! I couldn't be more excited. I know a lot of people think its dumb to pay someone else to let you run, but having an event to train for makes exercising so much more fun. I'm addicted, what can I say. Anyone want to join??
Vanilla Texas Sheet Cake: Of all the recipes I have tried off Pinterest, this is by far my absolute favorite. I am a lover of all things chocolate, but this cake! Holy delicious. Make this the next time you have to take dessert somewhere. You will NOT be disappointed.
Unshrinking Clothes: If your wardrobe is anything like mine, a large percentage of it comes from places like H&M and Forever 21. Can't beat those prices! Unfortunately you have to be oh so careful with how you wash them. One of my recently purchased shirts accidentally went through the dryer and came out looking like it would fit my six year old niece. Really, I'm not exaggerating. I wish I had taken a picture to prove it because I was in shock. I decided to give this a try rather than toss the shirt and it worked! In fact I'm wearing the shirt right now and could not be more comfortable. How handy!
His Grace is Sufficient by Brad Wilcox: If you click on any of my links, let it be this one. I will warn you it is 32 minutes long but it is absolutely the best explanation of the grace of Jesus Christ I have ever heard. You will finally believe that you are saved. I'm literally begging you to watch this. Please.
Anyone else have a great pin to share???
