Don’t Forget

It’s been a wild half year. I joke that hitting the BIG 3-ohh has added to my wisdom and brilliance, but let’s be real. I feel like the same nervous awkward chick I’ve been since college.

I will run around trying new things, but I’m constantly worried if I’m successful enough. I write articles I stay up at night fearing people will hate, and I get stressed if my Mom doesn’t call every day. I’m always meeting new people and worrying if they like me, wondering if I said the right/wrong thing, hoping everyone got my Twitter jokes.

Trying to be a grown up is silly. So I’m working on just being. And being awesome.

Being “yourself” is a funny concept. Accepting that I probably think about it more than maybe anyone else is part of the reality, I guess. How much do you wonder about what others think? Does your own voice get lost in people pleasing? Trying to be something you aren’t? It might distract you FROM AWESOME.

Whether you are the highest form of “got your self figured out” or are just gazing at the path to an end goal, Don’t Forget to be Awesome.

Sometimes I like Pinterest. And I like short, sweet inspiring quotes. Two things I might have just lost some of you admitting. But every once it a while, I find it totally uplifting to read some of these quotes I’ve bookmarked. It’s a good reminder – we are all on a journey. They are all different, but all intertwined. While you are figuring you out, don’t forget to be awesome.

Pinterest Buddy

A girlfriend of mine recently share her Pinterest success story. To be honest, I almost like this more than my jewelry box.

Sorry – photo is a little blurry. Using the board and hooks for tools from Home Depot and some paint, this wall board is the perfect way to organize accessories and make them easy to locate.

What do you think?

From Pinterest

I love social media. Things are always evolving.

But it can be too much sitting in front of a computer and not enough doing stuff.

So, NEW RULE.

I can only waste time flipping around Pinterest (oohing and aahing over things I CAN’T do, like pretty wedding photos – no fair) if I actually use it for a benefit.

My main interests from that site so far have been hairdos and FOOD. Some recipes are quick and easy. I’ve tried to cook from the internet and typically prefer cookbooks, but some Pinterest recipes are great for how idiot proof they are.

I made this

And I could post all my pics but WHO HAS TIME so my review is:

I didn’t use corn. It was delicious. It is my hubby’s new fave food. It is a classier version of a hamburger helper.

Give it a go!

Stay tuned for more things off Pinterest that I ACTUALLY DO – and tell me:
