On Mine {and Possibly Your} To-Do List

Why couldn't I have invented Pinterest?  Sometimes I wish I could creatively come up with a fantastic idea that everyone falls for.  As Oprah says 'Find something you love to do, then find a way to get paid for it'.

Yep, I'm still working on that.

Today I thought I'd share some of the projects/ideas/new recipes I might tackle in the upcoming months.  Who knows, maybe you'll jump on the bandwagon too?

1st Birthday Caterpillar Cake
The little miss is turning 1 on March 25th.  {tear.}  She has grown into such a beautiful, happy baby.  My heart aches a little when I think of her birthday coming up.  In one sense I'm glad to be leaving those baby things - less bottles and sleepless nights - but on the other hand I'm going to miss them dearly.

My mom usually does all the homemade birthday cakes, but I'm pretty sure I can tackle this one on my own.  You all know how I feel about store bought cakes...this one will definitely be homemade and I hope she loves it!
Fruit Pizza Bar
A good friend of mine is getting married in May and I'm the personal attendant.  We are throwing a shower for her in the coming months and I think this Fruit Pizza Bar is fabulous.  I haven't brought up the idea to the other girls, yet, but wouldn't this be fun?

If you are reading ladies...what do you think?

Personalized Date Print

The look of this picture is classy and just reeks family life.  I love it.  Now, the question is, do I make or buy one now?  Or do I wait out a couple years in case we have a third baby.  Not sure.

Don't get any ideas family and friends, no third baby is on the horizon anytime soon.  I do love the idea of adding in your wedding date, and really any other important date in your life.

Project: Simplify March 5-30, 2012
Ok, who is sick of looking at that pile of crap on their kitchen counter?  Or that spare bedroom that has just become a free for all?  I am.

Think of this project as a job.  Each day, do something.  Set a timer and get it done.  If need be, set a deadline and reward yourself when it is done.  A cupcake, Starbucks coffee, a glass of wine, a hot bath - whatever floats your boat.  Trust me, you'll feel better afterwards.

So, which project/idea has you thinking?

  1. I have yet to be sucked into pinterest, but on a daily basis about 50 people pin my stuff every day which is so cool. Even old shitty pictures!

    Okay, you have challenged me. I have a desk in the basement that is so over grown with papers, its sickening. I challenge to spend 20 minutes a day (starting tomorrow!) until it is in an organized fashion.

    Little Miss is almost one??? Holy shit this year went by fast!

  4. I just threw my sister in law a baby shower and did the fruit pizza bar and it was a big hit. Everyone loved it so I say go for it.
