Pinterest, Schminterest. Time sucker to the max.




Hours and hours and hours of time spent on Pinterest and all I have to show for it is this bit of wall awesomeness.

Don't get me wrong, Pinterest is fun. Full of beautiful, clean images snagged from all corners of the internet. Just thinking about it gives me goose bumps! But be honest... how long, total, have you spent oggling today? Yeah, I thought so! Reason one why MY Pinterest thingy is so bare.

I don't allow myself to sit and browse Pinterest for too long anymore. I get too many ideas, they get jumbled. A mind like mine needs some structure, discipline, and lots of planning! Two ideas at a time, MAX and I'm off Pinterest making a list of materials to pick up at Home Depot.
Come on! Let's be productive. Stop daydreaming. Make it happen, cap'n.

So, I love you Pinterest, in small doses. And this is why:

Finished! :)
(This was less of a blog post and more of a 'keep yourself accountable' post!) 
Props to the OP of this fantastic and easy project!

Oh my sandwich.

At 10:45 am we pulled up at our lunch destination. Corleone's Authentic Philly Steaks.

Mill Ave. has changed a bit since the last time I bumbled around the area. Meters. Gah.
I snagged a space and started digging around the various change stashes in my car's console. Welp, I pull my hand back quickly to find I've been impaled in the index finger with a sewing needle. I was a little shocked so I just sat there with my finger up in there air, the needle's first quarter inch (felt like half an inch) hiding in my cozy digit. 
Back to reality. Chad yanks the needle out before I can even whine. Well, that was easy! :) Let's get to the grubbin'!
#1 with Whiz and grilled onions. They also serve pizza but we'll save that for another visit.
It's not cheap but it's worth the money. We got two sandwiches, fries, and drinks for $20.00. The staff is friendly and FAST! I'll definitely be heading back to Mill Ave for lunch!

We (don't) want the funk!


2012 finds me in somewhat of a funk. And I absolutely hate using the term 'funk' because there is nothing funky fresh about my life recently. I've lost my crafty edge and I'm milling around the house wasting time checking out what other peeps are doing... So, yeah.
On a more positive note, there have been quite a few little home improvements embarked upon and even finished! :)
The house is coming
along, slowly but surely.

We added a little bit of organization in the laundry room and it's a flipping life saver for sure! Never thought I would get excited over shelves. But guess what. I am, and I'm okay with it.

Shelves in the garage, dimmer switches, big fancy mirrors, parking guide (with a tennis ball) and hopefully more this weekend after we have a nice little drunken RockBand get together!
