Adventures Through Pinterest

Long time no post! 2013 got busy and productive, and I might have forgotten my username for a while. 🙂 I traveled to new places, saw new things, tried new things, had a blast, and am now welcoming 2014 with open arms. Last year had it’s ups and downs and now I’m ready to set some high goals and do my best to achieve them.

One of the things I’m trying out is to work my way through my hundreds and hundreds of Pinterest posts.

I love my Pinterest. I might be on it too much, but it’s a great one stop shop to research tons of ideas, learn new things, and become inspired. I figured instead of just collecting tons of fun looking pins, that I should start working my way through them.

First pin I tackled this year was a Black Eyed Pea Dip. It was easy, a little time consuming, fresh tasting, and delicious.

It was time consuming due to my decision of cooking the black eyed peas myself. Everything else was super quick.

I didn’t follow the recipe to the letter. I always alter as I go. I left out the onions due to an intense dislike on my part, and the oil to save on calories.

All in all, this was a promising start to something I hope to continue all year.

Cats and Cocktails

Last weekend I enjoyed a girl’s day with three ladies, a few cats, and some tasty eats. We indulged in sunshine, a swimming pool, and personally way too much food. No regrets!!!

Cheeses, fruits, crackers, and other tid bits were shared. I brought along a drink I found on Pinterest.

Tasty and Refreshing

It is super easy to make, and makes a ton. Here’s what you do:

– Pour one large bottle of Moscato or Riesling wine.

– Add one can of raspberry lemonade concentrate

– Add a bag of frozen raspberries

– Share and drink it up

Girl’s day did involve some guys. Like this feller

Hello ladies

We also got to enjoy an amazing dinner with our fun group. This totally helped me to relax and enjoy the day.

Then Tuesday happened. My car died, but no worries! It is fixed now. I did get to enjoy working from home with my personal working partner.

Get back to work!

See how much he is motivating me to get stuff done?
