Pinning

Thanks so much for all of your feedback and support on my previous post. I am just glad to know I am not totally cray-cray. And I also really appreciate those of you who offered to slash tires and cause bodily harm. I definitely know who I can count on for future abuses against me ;). Ha!

I am now officially moving on. Specifically to my newest hobby, pinning. (Also for those of you who need an invitation, just comment below with your email address and I will send you one. I want to follow you anyway!) 

So I decided to share my favorite gift ideas from pinterest this week:

First, you guys KNOW I love the nesting dolls. I don’t know if it is because there are miniatures within a big thing or what, but I LOVE them. My sister and I went to World Market last week while we were in Shreveport and I saw these measuring cups. We took shifts going into the store so that Finley could sleep in the car.  So I went in and admired these and then Allison went in and not knowing I had even seen them or admired them, bought them for me. I will take a picture soon. I have them in my kitchen and they are presh!

I also LOVE all things clever, so this cotton ball holder posted by Virginia Thornton was too cute. The photo originated from the blog Chez Larsson, but it looks like it was a vintage find. Sad.

I LOVE this customizable state pillow from etsy shop love, california. This would be the most perfect “going away” gift for someone moving to another state. I kind of want one myself…I heart Tulsa and all.

I love this custom poster for a baby’s nursery. For those of you that have photoshop, you could do something similar and for those of you who prefer to outsource, you can get it at etsy shop chaive.  I definitely want to do this for my next friend that has a baby to match their nursery. Em, I think that might be you!

In other non-pinning news, I don’t know what is happening to me, but I have actually taken an interest in basketball. While it is not full on, stop my other tv watching interest, I have developed an curiosity for OKC Thunder basketball. No one tell my husband, though, I don’t want to be stuck watching this too often. ;)

haha.. I'm with you on the Thunder stuff! I'm like "Wait, when did I care?" right after I say "Thunder Up!" and think "that totally just came out of my mouth." :)

And as an aside, Eric has a theory that he MUST listen to the Thunder game on the radio b/c it's good luck. I dont get it, but it's highly amusing. We totally planned to head home from OKC last weekend just in time so he could listen to the game on the radio.. haha.. Good grief.

Super cute things!!

And you know Aja and I would totally become this bad-ass mom fighting team. First, we would lure the perp (I watch a ton of Lawn and Order) with pictures of our cute babies and then.....BLAM!!!! We'd get them with something that would make them think but not really hurt or be gory cause we just don't roll that way. More of an After School Special kind of lashing.
