Holy addiction, I’m hooked

I have no idea why it’s taken me so long to jump on board, but I just joined Pinterest and holy addiction, I’m hooked. Where have you been all my life, clever ideas and dream homes?! Oh, right there on the internet with thousands of other people? My bad. I just didn’t think I need yet ANOTHER thing to sign into and become a technology zombie over but I’m so glad I changed my mind.

I could care less about a lot of the things that people “pin” like fashion and healthy stuff but I LOVE the home section. I told my husband that I can finally show him the way I want my dream home to look. To which he responds “never gonna happen”. *Sigh* If I win the lottery, I’m hiring an designer and pulling up my Pinterest page to point out every feature I could ever want. Like this gem:

I don’t have any kids but that doesn’t stop me from pinning adorable animal shaped food or craft projects. What I do have is a niece & you bet I’ll be testing some things out on her. I don’t know who you brilliant moms are out there, but whoever thought of all the child activities on Pinterest, bless you. I can’t wait to be the cool aunt & uncle who teach her how to paint with bubbles and a little food coloring:
I also love the things that make you say “why didn’t I think of that?” because they make life easier. Plus, they make me feel smart even though I totally stole someone else’s clever idea. Whatever. Thanks to Pinterest, I now know to put my shoes in a shower cap when packing my luggage so they don't get my clothes dirty. Brilliant!

Oh and the pictures of places I want to travel to are mesmerizing. Even if I can't afford every trip I pin, I can dream about them. What I don't like is when I find a picture and they don't tell you where in the world it is?! Are you people holding out on us because it's your secret retreat? Ok, I don't blame you. Like this one... it could be Italy, but I don't know.

I'll keep finding treasures to fill my boards with every day! And it looks like I'm not the only one addicted. Happy pinning everyone :]
