Charlie Sheen had it wrong…’s not Winning…’s Pinning!

It’s a Pinterest post.

Don’t know what Pinterest is? Well, it’s a place where you can like or repin photos (and links) of things you think are cool or want to know how to do. It’s a place of ideas coming together with idealists.

A lot of people use it for the DIY projects and fashion stuff, but I am proof you don’t have to be into all that and still enjoy Pinterest. You can like the ideas without making them, but be careful, it is addicting. And some of the tutorials are so easy, it makes you think you can CRAFT when you can’t. It’s that good.

I thought I would share some of my favorite pins. See, I like inspiration, and I like quotes. Cute animals, and anything photography related.

My pin boards are not the best for ideas or crafts, but they might make you go “Awwwh!” Or be a place that you can let go of some stress. I think my Quotes board help do that (at least for me they do).

Click the photo to go the Pinterest Board for the link to the story. It is about Jasmine the Greyhound who fostered a baby doe. Say it with me, Awwh!
This is something even I could make...frozen whip cut out in the shape of a heart for hot chocolate.

Here are some of my favorite quotes about being yourself, and loving yourself. I can’t get enough of these.

A quote about good friends, and I am so thankful for the ones in my life. You know who you are.

This pin reminded me of my blog friend Thoughtsy. It would be spot-on if it said yogurt instead of ice cream, right?

And here is my favorite tattoo of all-time. I have NEVER wanted a tattoo until I saw this one (sorry mom). It just resonates with the theme of my life. To love and be loved.

Isn’t that beautiful? Somehow, Jason has agreed that I can have this tattoo (I believe he was distracted, but it still counts). Surely, some of my readers are tattoo artists, yes? Anyone?

Send me a Facebook message. I’m so serious!

And look at this one. Is this not the cutest thing for your fence?

Now, do you see why Pinterest is so addicting. Sooo many cute ideas, sayings, and other adorable things.

My last pin is of my BOYFRIEND. Yes, my boyfriend that I have a not-so-secret affair with. Of course, my husband knows all about my love for him on Monday nights (he pretends not to be jealous). Our paths crossed when the new Hawaii-Five-O aired. He has been on other TV shows, but this was the first one I saw him in. This photo does not do him justice, because he is wearing his shirt. Believe me, he looks better with it off. This…is Alex O’Loughlin. Swoon all you want….he’s mine! HA.

I hope you learned a thing or two about Pinterest. I’d love to see what you like if you are a Pinner.

Remember, it’s not about winning, but pinning!

  1. Thanks. I’ve been hearing a lot about Pinterest but when I looked at it awhile ago I didn’t understand it. Thanks for letting me know, it’s not something I have time for! I love the dog and the deer picture!


  2. Oh the time I lose looking at things on Pinterest….but at the same time…I get SO many neat ideas!!! And most of them are doable!!!! 🙂 Just found/followed you!

    I need lessons! My friend talked me into signing up and I couldn’t figure it out after like five minutes and I gave it up! I’m such a dummy!


  4. Hmmm… I could have sworn Alex O’Loughlin was *mine*. Does the fact I found him first (August Rush/ that horrible show Moonlight) count?

    Thank you for the introduction to Pinterest! I had heard about it but really had not checked it out until reading your blog! This looks like such fun and I cannot wait to get started and post recipes, and make craft boards (and what a perfect excuse to sit at my computer and ignore the dust accumulating on my bookshelves)!


  5. Love Pinterest!! It’s been very helpful with get my ideas for the house organized, as well as a great place to keep photography inspiration and how-to’s in one place 🙂


  6. I keep hearing about Pinterest but I can’t spare the time for another thing. Between Facebook and blogging and school I have no spare time to take interest in something else! But it looks cool!


  7. Ah, you know me and Pinterest already ..
    Btw, as long as I may keep Bradley Cooper, I promise not to flirt too often with your boyfriend.
    I love the garden idea! Too beautiful and creative!


  8. Rach @ This Italian Family

    Aww, I love Pinterest so much! Glad you are hooked too! Also, you will have to keep us posted on your tattoo plans!


  9. Hey we have a little bit of a girlfriend conflict here because that is MY BOYFRIEND! Ha ha…do you know when H50 started, I actually regretted moving from Honolulu to Maui because now my chances of running into him were nil? Crazy but true and Honolulu is no small city. I love pinterest but hardly spend time there…maybe this weekend. There is still something about me that loves ripping pages out of mags still. But I love writing funny captions in Pinterest…totally wish I could get paid for doing it.
