Show and Tell - favorite Pinterest pins

While I'm Waiting...favorite Pinterest pins
Today I'm joining up with Andrea from Momfessionals as we share some of our favorite Pinterest pins.  In addition to some of my favs, I'm also sharing some Pinterest humor too! Because, if we can't laugh about our crazy Pinterest addictions, then we might actually have a problem!


It was because of this post that I decided to try a little string art of my own!  I LOVE the way it turned out! #seewhatIdidthere

I'm always looking for crafts that Holden and I can do together so when I saw these cute headbands, I just knew we would have to try them out!  Here's how ours turned out:

I love anything craftsy so I was eager to try making these mugs!  I even wrote a post about it!  Sadly, over time, these cute dots do in fact wash away...

St. Patrick's Day is next month so why not get a jump start on planning something fun for your kiddos?  Our kids LOVE scavenger hunts and the girls at The Dating Divas make planning one super duper easy!

Last year I shared our St. Patrick's Day fun on a Friday Favorites post!

I'm such a sucker for cute EOS printables!  I even came up with my own for an End of School gift!

My one little word for 2016 is extraordinary.  You know - giving a little extra to ordinary things to make them extraordinary - these cute fruit cups do just that!

A cup of orange slices were super easy to add pumpkin faces to for Hope's Halloween party!

I pin SO many organizational posts!!!  Even more now since I've been digging in to the Kon Mari Challenge!

This was one of the best ideas I've ever gotten from Pinterest!  The thought of having my daughters' picture made in my wedding dress would have never crossed my mind!  Thank you, Pinterest!

I had these pictures taken on our 15th wedding anniversary - Holden was 7 and Hope was almost 2.  I'm hoping to recreate these pictures again on our 20th anniversary!

And since we're talking about progression pics, how fabulous are these pictures?!  Oh how I wish I would have done this with our kids!  New mamas - take note!!!

I love, love, LOVE acts of kindness and Courtney DeFeo is the queen of spreading joy!  I'm pretty sure this was the very first pin I ever pinned to Pinterest!

  1. I love the wedding dress photos. When the weather is nicer I'll have to do them with my daughter. I also love the pin saying those of us married before Pinterest should get another chance. Seriously!

    1. Thanks, Kristy! I'm SO glad I have the pics of the girls in my wedding dress! True treasures! You'll have to share with me when you take yours!

      And, YES! I think we all should get a do-over Pinterest wedding! :)

  2. I love that one that says everyone who got married before pinterest should have another chance. And ditto for having babies. Everything is so much cuter now than in 2000! :) Have a good Tuesday!

    1. SO true, Tanya! But, looking back it kinda was nice to just do what you wanted without the bajillion ideas that are out there now! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Pinterest but can get overwhelmed pretty quickly! But, it won't stop me from looking and re-creating! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. I seriously do not know how my kids or I ever survived their childhood without Pinterest and IG and Facebook! LOL just kidding.....Part of me is thankful and part of me is sad that I didn't have all this social media at my fingertips! I loved all the Pinterest E-cards and they are all correct! LOL LOL!! You have the best ideas.....I love seeing them actually implemented! You are awesome! Happy Tuesday!

    1. I'm SO glad social media wasn't around when I was growing up!!! We just had a presentation at Holden's school for parents about social media and it terrifies me! It's SO hard - it can be used for good and it can be used for bad... Just have to find a way to stay on top of things and pray they make good choices!

      Thanks so much for your sweet words! I appreciate them so much! Hope you're having a great day!

  5. Holy cow! I am so doing that Wedding dress one! That is such a fantastic idea, now my daughter just needs to be 2 years older, don't think I would get great pictures with a 2 year old, hehe. But so doing this! And this was the reason I didn't know about why I didn't want to pay all the money to get my dress preserved! Loving everyone's favorite pins!

  7. Hi Holly! I loved these! I especially loved the idea of taking a daughter's pic in your wedding dress. That was an incredible idea! It is sadly too late for me, but not for my daughter and granddaughters. I loved the pics you had done!! Visiting as your neighbor on the linkup at Grammie Time.
