 I thought I was past that addicted stage.
You know, where you go from wasting an hour or more a day on it 
to just 5 or 10 or 15 minutes.
But I'm kind of loving it these days.
Especially 'cause I can do it on the iPad while I watch things like
the Presidential debates with my hubby  
(makes it not so boring)
or one of our many shows like Chopped, Shark Tank or the Bachelor. 
Feels like I'm killing two birds with one stone, ya know?
(Hmmm... What if the two birds are wasting time and wasting time?  Does that really count?)
What about you?
Do you go in spurts with it?
 Do you use, make or do any of the things you see on there?

I don't know about you but I have really good intentions of having my whole house organized just as fabulously as it looks on my "Ultra Organized" board.  And, I'm pretty sure one of these days I'm going to make all of the recipes I have on my "Sweet Treats", "Yum", "Good Morning" and "Drink Me" boards.  And at the same time, I'll be as strong and tough as I am on my "Be Fit" board and my home will be as beautiful as "My Dream Home" board.
I guess it's easy to get overwhelmed with all of the loveliness on there.
You have to be able to brush off all of the perfection that you see.
But it's kinda fun trying.
A little inspiration, motivation and eye candy never hurt.
You eat half a pan of these:
Which I'm pretty sure I did over the course of a couple days.
(These revel bars are super easy.  The recipe makes a ton.  They freeze well.  And they're really yummy.)


You may also feel a little regret when you tell yourself you're just going to have one bite of one of these Mummy Twinkie Pops (I mean, after all, you have to try the fruits of your labor and besides you don't even really like Twinkies) but you end up eating the whole thing anyways cause it was actually quite tasty. 

(I took them to our family Halloween party last Monday.  They were so cute.  I just couldn't resist.  It cost about a dollar a pop to make them and I got all the supplies at Wal-Mart.)

Another thing I made 
(that I spied on Pinterest and didn't feel bad about) 
were these burp cloths:

They were fun to make and it's nice to (for once) feel "on the ball" ~ 
It's nice to have a stash of homemade baby gifts that I can go to on a moments notice (as if 9 months notice wasn't enough).

I'm just saying that Pinterest is fun and there are lot of good ideas on there.  And you can have fun trying some of them.
But you just have to be careful.
That you don't feel like you have to do all of them.
Just do one or two or three.  
Once in a while.

Now, it is two-fifteen in the afternoon.  
So I need to go get my bra on and my makeup done and my hair flat-ironed because I just wasted a lot of time talking about a really good time waster.

So.  Good-bye :)
