And yet another Pinterest victim...

As the title may have clued you in...I have fallen victim to the craze that is Pinterest. Although I have been poking around there for a while, I have been reluctant to mention it here.

But anyway, as I am sure most of you know, there are tons of great things just waiting to be found; recipes, projects, tutorials...you name it, you can probably find it.

So, this brings me to the point where I want to share some of the more interesting or helpful things I have found lately.

We'll call this "Are you Pinterested?"

Heck, I might even hop over to Picnic and make a cute little button to use next time, or I might even make this a regular thing around here...who knows.

Moving on...here are my most recent, favorite Pinterest picks...









If you're interested, I would love to see you over at my Pinterest page...you can click here

So, what about you? Have you found anything amazing on Pinterest that you would like to share?

If so, make sure to post a link!

Woo Pig Sooie


In this house, we are a Razorback family. There is no room in this home to be anything other than a Razorback fan. That said, today is our biggest game of the season, the most important win of the season.

This game is an annual tradition, for both sides. Every year, on the Friday after Thanksgiving, fans gather to witness the outcome of this long-standing rivalry.

Last year, Arkansas won with a score of 31-23.

So, this afternoon, my husband and I, along with every other Razorback fan, will eagerly anticipate the massacre of the LSU Tigers.

WOO PIG SOOIE

*Update...several hours later...
                 The game did not go quite as well as we had hoped.

Birchbox


In recent months, I've seen lots of blog posts and YouTube videos about Birchbox. At first I was kind of confused and not really sure what it was all about, but eventually I got the picture and I was a little intrigued.

If you aren't familiar with Birchbox, it's simply a service that you can subscribe to for $10 a month, and each month you receive a package of 4 to 5 great sample products. And this is what I was slightly concerned about, this is what has kept me from subscribing before now. I was always a little worried about not getting anything that I would use or would find practical. One Birchbox video said that some months the samples are really great, and some months...not so much. And that's just the gamble that goes along with this. But, usually everything balances out. Apparently, for every disappointing box, there will eventually be a really great box. So, after all the great reviews I've seen, I thought that I would have to at least give it a try. 

So, now, here I sit, waiting to receive my first Birchbox. I know it will be December before I receive it, but I'll have to make sure to post about what I receive and whether I will continue with my subscription. 

How about you? Do you have an experience with Birchbox? Do you enjoy it?
