I know that I’ve totally neglected this blog. Again. But here I am. Again.

          Hellllooooo potatoes. I'm going to see you in my belly.

Im trying to get inspired to change up my go-to recipe routine (rut) now that school is back in session. SooooIm going to try one new recipe every week. Anyone want to join in with me? Anyone? Im going to choose one of these yummo recipes that I found on Pinterest (which are conveniently located on my Veggie-licious board.

Or you Mr. Seafood Superfood salad of some sort.

And if it ever decides to become Fall in Atlanta, I'll choose you Mr. Ravioli and Veggie Soup. 

Do you gals have any yummy new recipes to share? Please do. Pretty please?

I’m good at stalking Pinterest, just not so good at actually making things.

Fortunately I have super awesome creative friends that actually follow through on crafty projects. Let me introduce you to Amy. She’s like a younger, prettier, law-abiding version of Martha Stewart. The opposite of me.

Anyhooo, Amy found these adorbz edible baskets for easter. Guess what she did? She actually made them.

Her version turned out like this. What up mother-of-the-freaking-year.

You can check out all of Amy’s boards right here. And let's all give Amy a round of applause for actually finishing a project.

Who the F*#k has time to do all of these Pinterest projects?

So the shell project didn’t happen this week. Story of my life. And probably because I spent most of my pinning instead of actually making stuff.

I did do one thing that’s sort of share worthy. This mother-of-the-year was in charge of Teacher Appreciation Week gifts for my son’s class. So I put together a basket full of their favorite foods and then added in a gift card.

Fingers crossed this puts Darren up in the favorite student category. I set a good example, right? No.

Totally (not) going to complete the shells project this week. And in the meantime, check out some other projects I’ll never get to.

You gotta love another Pinterest FAIL.

So this is awesome. One of my good friends saw this brilliant idea on Pinterest—turning cereal tupperware into a car trashcan. Smart, right?

Um not so much.

Turns out that the tupperware slid under the carseat and her daughter got a hold of it, turned it upside down and dumped out all of the trash.

And that my friends should make you feel better when you see all of those glossy pictures that make you (and by you I mean me) feel like a failure. Thankyouverymuch.

Update on my next Pinterest Project: There is no update.

And of course you can check out all of my boards here.

Update to Pinterest success. It was actually a Pinterest fail.

The Before:
Son: "Why do the mustaches keep breaking?"

Me: “Because Pinterest only shows glossy pictures and not the aftermath.”

Son: “What’s an aftermath?”

Me: "Go to bed."

The Aftermath:

Major fail
