The other day when I was on Pinterest,
I looked to see how many things I'd pinned since I joined and the grand total was:
That's a butt load of pins.
How many of these pins have actually turned into something of substance?
How many meals have I made using pinned recipes, how many pinned DIY's have I completed, how many party inspiration pins have gotten used?
Not a lot (i.e. barely any).
I sat there for a bit thinking about all these unrequited pins. Pins that had such great potential, but would never leave the confines of my pin board. Rather like unrequited love don't you agree?
And so, I decided I would start a regular posting called
Because, let's be real, I'm probably never going to do any of this stuff, despite it's awesomeness. But, maybe some of you super women out there will reach for the stars and actually do some of this stuff and then I'll pat you on the back and live vicariously through your impressive pin-doing-ness. Yes. I just made that up.
Here are some of my most recent unrequited pins:
It's pretty, but my husband is
cheap frugal so I'll be sticking with my ugly mesh laundry bags.
My postpartum body is never going to wear a swimsuit again.
....at least not in the foreseeable future.
I can't actually find the original link to this, so even if I ever got up the ambition to complete this, I wouldn't know how.
If I don't even have time to unpack my house, chances are this isn't going to happen. Plus, it's not like not-quite-3-month-old Fern is going to be begging me for a work table anytime soon. She's still pretty entertained by sticking her hands in her mouth and staring at the ceiling, so....
Uhhhhh....yeah right. Did I mention I don't even get to shower these days?
OK. I actually probably should try this, but anything that requires prep is pretty much out. Most days I subsist on granola bars and string cheese. Sad but true.
If I'm taking the time to make something fruity that requires more than pouring orange juice out of a container then there better be booze in it.
Please tell me I'm not the only one with unrequited pins?
