My Pinterest Successes

*** The winners of the Monsters University packages will be announced tomorrow!  Be sure to check in and see if one of them is you! *** I think it has been well documented on this blog that I am a Pinterest addict. I can’t help it, but at least I can admit it. They say that’s the first step. I normally use Pinterest for my meal planning. I sit down on Saturday mornings with my grocery list, coupons, and iPad and I cruise Pinterest until I find good recipes for…

Summer Happenings

Things have been pleasantly dull around my house for the past few days.  We have been enjoying some sun by the pool, spending time with family and friends, eating (marshmallow pie, anyone?), and just generally have a good time.  Isn’t that what summers are for?   A little of this and a little of that… 1.  Bean is in swimming lessons right now (he finishes on Friday), and he is actually swimming!  Like, for real!  He can jump in the pool, swim, float, and manage wonderfully without his swimmies.   He has…

Another Pinterest Project

Hi, my name is Katie and I am addicted to Pinterest. Ever since my obsession with Pinterest first began, I’ve had my eye on these particular bookshelves for Bean’s room. They are really thin and close to the wall, and the idea is that you display the books facing out so that the kids can see them better. I saw them and immediately thought they would be perfect in Bean’s room because of how much he (and Gracie, too) love books. Plus, I hoped it would be a way to…
