Today I am confessing...
I am obsessed with pinterest. And horrible at it. And it costs me a lot of money. And its the biggest time suck in the world. Real talk, I still check it at least two or three times daily.
It's sort of like the whole chicken and the egg thing: which came first in my life pinterest or blogging, and honestly I couldn't tell you.
But if my life actually looked like pinterest...aka...I ever tried or remembered half the shit I pinned...here is what it would look like in a nut shell.
I would have the most wonderful bedroom. Eclectic. Calm. Cozy. Oh and free.
I would be so in shape I could start making youtube videos of all of my awesome exercise routines. Or even great picture routines, I am not picky on how I earn extra dough...people do get paid for that shit right?!?
My wardrobe would be out of this world, fashion bloggers would be jealous. And not the other way around. And of course all of these awesome clothes would be free, because how else would I be able to take 260 different outfit photos a year.
I would be the Paula Dean of healthy cooking. Instead of just pinning all of these recipes and making a salad every night for the 500th time. Or convincing the mister to take me out for tacos...cause tacos are my weakness.
My parties would be so pinterestly chic people would be begging to come. This would also mean I had people, which I don't. And had money to throw parties, which I don't. And I wouldn't pass out at my own party, which I probably would.
I would be the DIY Queen...self crowned of course...that I would make bigger headlines than Hobby Lobby. Too soon?!?
Regardless of what your take on pinterest really is I think sometimes it can make us all feel a little inadequate: our house isn't perfectly decorated/organized, our wardrobe isn't too die for, our body isn't a lean green fighting machine and we aren't the perfectly polished hostess. Oh and everybody but me must be making millions of dollars to be able to afford all of these things.
But that's the beauty of pinterest: you don't have to think, all you do is see something 'shiny' then pin it, then forget about it. And repeat.
So I confess...I won't be giving up pinterest anytime soon because with pins like this what girl would?
