Pinterest Update!

So, confession time.  My friend recently shared with me an email from her ex-boyfriend, in which he simultaneously tries to get her back and asks her several times if he is coming across as insane… Really, I can’t make this stuff up.

First of all, if you are a man with an ex-girlfriend and you find yourself compiling an email to her with the usage of the word ‘insane,’ please do not select the Send button.  Secondly, I kind of feel like him right now.

What??!! <– you, the reader.

Bear with me.  I’m not asking you if I’m insane.  I’m just associating myself with the feeling.  *Totes* different.  Right?!!  Anyways, the reason that I am feeling this way oddly has to do with Pinterest.  A number of months ago, after I wrote this post, my mom texted me and asked “Do you seriously limit each of your Pinterest boards to only 100 pins you little weirdo?!,” but in slightly nicer language, of course.

And, the answer is: Yes, I do!   It is no secret that I absolutely adore Pinterest.  I could spend hours upon hours on the site, and never get bored.  But, there is one little aspect that drives me a little nuts-o’s.  And, that is when people post thousands of pins to one board.  I find it really frustrating to scroll through pages of images (pausing for the browser to refresh) to find one little, mildly associated picture/article/fun fact that I might want to pin.

So, this is why I have no friends and am absolutely insane per my reference above meticulously create pinterest boards associated with specific topics, and analyze where each of my pins should go.  Yes, I really do this and I am totally weird, but I also find the end product quite fascinating.  My boards are quirky in the way that they can be really specific and absolute direct contrasts to each other.  Want to see?

Ps. Am I insane – or do I make, at least, a little bit of sense?  How do you organize your Pinterest boards?

Weekend Link Love!

Oh – hi friends!  Long time, no talk.  Sorry for the radio silence over here; my full-time+ day job has gotten the best of me.  It’s always interesting when my blog goes a little quiet, my body starts physically reacting.  My day job is so heavy on the analytical side that my body starts recognizing the imbalance.  I wake up from weird, strange dreams as my brain starts screaming, “we need to create!!”

Well, since the creative process can take a little longer than a Saturday-morning-hour, I decided to roll out another version of Link Love: the Weekend Edition.  Come check out these brave and creative posts from blogger geniuses across the internet.  Meanwhile, I’ll be working on a new challenge post for next week.  Hope you’ll join me!

I’m blown away by the creative extent of Hannah’s Oscar Party!  She made food inspired by each of the movies nominated for Best Picture!  I want to eat everything on that table… seriously.

A Beautiful Mess’ Spaghetti Squash Pizza

As a fan of the Paleo diet, I’m constantly looking for new sources of inspiration for my junk food cravings.  Doesn’t this pizza look divine??!  (Just ignore that cheese.) ;)

For anyone who is considering fostering dogs, this is a must-read.  I definitely think this is something that Kina and I will do in the future, and I appreciate this heart-warming post from Kristyn about the selfless risk of fostering.
