Show and Tell Tuesday: Pinterest Finds!

Happy Tuesday all! There is something so wonderful about getting beyond Monday and into the week. I am linking up today for some Show and Tell Tuesday with Momfessionals. Today is our favorite Pinterest finds, which is dangerous because this typically results in me getting lost in Pinterest for hours..

Join the linkup to share what some of your Pinterest favorites are!

Ok, I am mostly sharing this one because I think it is super funny this is my first ever pin that has gone ‘viral’. Hundreds of repins and closing in on 100,000 views. Not sure what exactly makes a pin go viral, but it makes me laugh! Apparently we all feel the same about lady Friday 🙂
The picture above was my Pinterest inspiration. I do blogging for part of my professional job (I know, right?!) and thought this was a perfect ‘healthy’ activity to do with kids, so I tried it out for myself. Here are my results:

You guys, this was ridiculously easy, I just grabbed a little $3 pack of cookie cutters from the Valentine’s section at Target. If you rush over, I am sure there are some on clearance right now! I used red peppers, cucumbers, strawberries, and mangoes, and it was so easy and quick, and I LOVE how cute it all turned out!
There is a ton of home inspiration going on with my Pinterest lately, but we are going to be beginning construction on our house in *hopefully* the next two months, so can you blame me!? I am loving dark kitchens with lighter countertops, but we will see. Slightly modified versions of basically this exact same kitchen style have been pinned by me many times.
More home inspiration. How perfect is this broom closet disguised in the kitchen!? One thing my mom told me was that you don’t even think to put this type of closet in most of the time, but it is incredible to have. I love how neat and tidy this one is, especially with the little hooks!

When I was pregnant with Jackson, I was on the hunt for a ‘nautical nursery’ set, and when I saw this picture I about died. I knew I had to have it. It was from Pottery Barn, but happened to be on mega clearance when I looked. I literally grabbed the last quilt and crib skirt, it was sold out minutes after I placed my order. To this day I am in love with his nursery, and have this picture to thank as my inspiration. Here is the real deal in our old house:

Baby items are making their way back onto my Pinterest, including this purple onesie. Seriously, could it BE MORE ADORABLE!? While I would be lying if I said I would never like to dress a little girl, I really have been amazed by how much I absolutely love dressing little boys. Maybe it is because I go out of my way to avoid the ‘typical’ little boy clothing, but I die over half of my little guys’ outfits as much as I would over a pink tutu!
I recently purchased a doughnut pan, and ever since I have been on the hunt for fabulous recipes that are a bit easier on the calories compared to deep fried or store bought versions. Pretty glazed doughnuts are all over my page, and I want to eat them all.
Here is my first homemade attempt at doughnuts:
 The actual doughnut part turned out great, but the glaze was less than impressive, which is why I now have about ten different glaze recipes pinned! A good glaze really is what will make or break a doughnut, so I am definitely on the hunt for a winner!
After repeatedly thinking it, I have finally decided to give homemade fried rice a try, and I am sooo excited. This recipe looks super easy, quick, and doesn’t have any of the extras in it (read: huge chunks of onion) that often gross me out in some restaurant versions!
Now that Valentine’s Day has come and gone, I am already thinking about my next excuse to make festive cookies, aka St. Patrick’s Day. While I love my traditional sugar cookie cutouts, these lofthouse cookies have me drooling, and I wouldn’t be terribly disappointed to frost circles instead of clovers 😉 Don’t they just look melt in your mouth delicious!? This past weekend, I did go for my traditional cutouts with the cutout recipe that is linked, and they turned out PERFECT. I have had my fair share of not so good sugar cookie dough, and I can honestly say I did not have one burned or broken cookie in entire batch of 5 dozen. Bookmark this recipe ladies, it is a keeper.
I can’t wait to see what everyone else has going on with their pinning lately!

    I love how my sugar cookie recipe tastes but it doesn't hold the shape of the cookie cutter- maybe I'll have to try your's next time. I'm so glad you shared pics of what you've tried from pinterest. I did too when I wrote my post. It's much more interesting than just the pins, right?!

    I have seriously had SO many duds with sugar cookies-this recipe turned out perfectly and tasted great 🙂 And I agree, I actually added my personal pinterest pics last minute but realized how fun it is to see the 'real life' versions! Thanks for stopping by!
