I Can't Sit Still

I don't know about you, but sometimes I get so excited about something new that I want to do ALL THE THINGS and do them RIGHT NOW! But I'm also in a season where I realize that slowing down and taking a breather is a good thing. It's Spring and the sun is shining here in Southern California...I need to remind myself to soak it in and experience renewal rather than just relish in the rush of daily life.


Oh, hey did I mention I’m now on Pinterest?

Ya, I’m such a loser.

I swore and swore and swore that I’d never do it. I get sucked into the interwebs far too often as it is and I knew, I just knew, it would finally be the thing to steal my soul.

But then I started finding all sorts of amazing recipes and I’d just print them out. It got stupid.

So, I finally made an account. And I giggled when naming my boards things like AMAZING FOOD I’LL PROBABLY NEVER MAKE or WHAT UP, HOMEY? or BOREDROBE TO WARDROBE. Uh huh…I’m still a smartass, even on Pinterest.

Follow me, if you will.

So, last night, I tweeted:

And I was immediately called out for not showing pictures. So, I woke up early this morning to rectify the situation. I began the project at 9:30pm and blogged about it before 7am. Clearly, I already have a problem…

It all started out when I bought a fussy trunk-like box to store blankets in. It was fine. It was inexpensive. It was meh. But then I downloaded the Joss & Main app and accidentally bought a storage ottoman when I was half asleep one night to replace it. Don’t worry mom, I totally deleted the app so there’d never be those kinds of expensive shenanigans again. 

So, there you first Pinterest DIY success story. But please slap me across the face if you ever find me planning an imaginary wedding.


  1. Haha! I just snorted at the last line. Hee.

    So is your TV on top of that dresser? Which cords is it hiding? Also, i LOVE that ottoman and kinda want you to get that app again… #badinfluence

    • My tv is mounted on the wall, but I haven’t buried the cords inside it, yet. The cords are for my components (which DO sit on the dresser), as well as my wireless internet thingamabob.

      I totally still go to the J&M website and buy crap all the time. I seriously need a 12 step program!

  2. As your friends, we promise to slap you. 🙂 Love you.

  3. Definitely following now, and thanks a lot, I just got sucked in to some more time wasting while I was there to follow you 🙂

  4. I am so torn over Pinterest! I see why it would be helpful, but I also don’t want to get sucked in! I’m still on the fence… :/

  5. Pinterest is best when it’s PRACTICAL. So I applaud your ingenuity. And hiding cords is always a good thing. Do you ever notice that there are NEVER cords in magazine photo shoots? I think they Photoshop them out.

  6. Planning an imaginary wedding…bahahahaha

    oh, I love that your on pinterest! At least you are completing projects. The rest of us have thousands of projects we have yet to begin… or have pinned 3-4 times because we can’t remember if we’ve pinned them before or not.
