Alright, I’ve got to know. How many of you out there have, by now, gotten sucked in to the vortex that is Pinterest?
When Pinterest first came onto the scene, I resisted…as if I needed something else sucking up my time while I’m on the computer. But eventually, I caved, as many of us do, and so began the endless pinning.
But really, I started thinking about it a bit last night, as I was browsing through my boards and pinning away…how many of these recipes/ideas/workouts/etc. do I even use?
I mean, sure, they’re neatly located on my organized boards but really, how many of them have I ever even gone back to look at? Most of the time, if we’re being quite honest, I forget they’re even there. Especially when I would actually need them, like when I’m scrounging trying to figure out what to make for dinner at home or a dessert to bring to a friends’ house (and trust me, I have plenty of those recipes pinned!).
So I started browsing around a bit more on my boards, trying to make a list of some recipes that look pretty promising and like something that I really think I could (or would want) to make over the next couple of months. If I got really smart, I’d start weeding out all of the recipes I know I’ll never make, but hey…baby steps.
In the mean time, here are some of the recipes that I’m looking forward to trying, hopefully sooner than later.
And actually, as I was typing this up, I realized that it would probably be cool to put together a post of recipes and/or workouts that I’ve already tried and loved. It was something that me and a couple friends had been talking about last month (Kanika & Sarah!) so I’m thinking that may be on the agenda. There’s nothing worse than coming across a Pinterest fail, right? For those, you can always check out this site, which is pretty amusing and informative. :)
