Ode to Pinterest...

How do you do it, Pinterest? How do you manage, in 5 measly minutes, to turn my perfectly imperfect morning into dreamland.

I'm just sitting here, eating my uber bland oatmeal, and the very first pin in my feed is this. Almond sheet cake.


Let's not even pretend that I couldn't hammer some almond sheet cake right now. Moving on...1 row down I see this...magic. Sheer perfection. Now, not only am craving cake but I want to move.


And who wants to be sitting in their office when they could be on the lake? Not.One.Person.

Really Jamie Oliver? Standing there with your fancy pitchers full of delicious, flavorful water.


This has gone from bad to worse....(ah-ha...you can even see my nasty oatmeal in the corner of the pic!)


Oh Pinterest, I do love you but you sure have a way with photos. I manage to pin great workouts (which I have never done), adorable outfits (which I do not own), dream houses and lake houses (which I will never own) and great DIY projects (which I will never do).


But I'll stay true. I'll keep logging in, pinning, day dreaming about what would happen if all of these things really did happen. If my house really was organized, perfectly decorated and perfectly landscaped by a woman with great legs, 8 minute abs, great turquoise earrings, dinner in the crock pot, and my burlap wreath on the door.


For now I'll just finish my oatmeal and choke down my unflavored, unoriginal, unpinterest-worthy H2O!

love this! and that almond sheet cake sounds devine!

Of course I can't decide what would be better...almond sheet cake or sipping some fruity water while on that raft!

That house. I die! I would love to someday own a house like that!
And I would love to be on a lake right now, that's for sure!

I agree, that house is amazing! Oh my! I posted several months ago about my Pinterest obsession and did a two part post about all the recipes we tried. Check it out! ;)
