Pin It

Ok if you havent noticed, Im a little obsessed with Pinterest lately.  Part of my 2012 New Years Resolutions, I wanted to pin something ORIGINAL because Im a copy cat.  So looky looky what I did.

Looks great doesnt it?
Ok my picture quality isnt GREAT, but let me tell you, this thing was DELICIOUS

I used mozzarella, 2 slices, avocado, grilled tomatoes and onions.  Let me tell you, it was soooo good.
Check out the pin here, if for no other reason than proff that I did pin it.

Also, has any heard of this trick? Instead of putting all the bacon grease in a can (we all do it, or maybe just us folks in the south ;) ) or down the drain with scalding water, try this:   Wrap a bowl in foil and put the hot bacon grease inside.  Let it cool  When its cool, roll up the foil and toss it.  No mess, no burns, no problem.

How have I not thought of this before?

Lets Paint

For Valentines Day, I told you I was waaaaaaaaaay behind, I wanted to kids to make their Valentines.  I blame Pinterest.  I came across this idea to make hugs out of hand prints so I thought oh yes, that would be wonderful to send to people and the kids would get a lot of joy out of getting dirty. 

So off we went. I bought finger paint, card sheets, string, and a drop clothe to catch all the mess.  I dont mind mess, but I really dont like digging paint out of carpet either.

Then we began.

Cole was 'neat' at first, I say that as I notice he has it on his stomach.

And of coarse, Elyse dove right in.

There were giggling and yelling "More paint mom, more paint

Cole then got into it and starting painting everything, instead of just putting down his hand prints.

Elyse made a stamp out of her hand and was smacking and smashing until she ran out of paper.

Sadly, these did not turn into Valentines, but they are still super cute. 
And it entertained these 2 for about an hour.

And arent they pretty?

Im sure Ill come up with something to make out them, helllllo Pinterest.
