Pinned It, Tried It

I know it was only about six months ago that I got into the whole Pinterest thing, but I really don't remember what people did before its advent.  I guess we just had to figure stuff out ourselves. Ugh.

Anyway, I've been pinning to my heart's content, and this past week I tried a bunch of stuff.

First up, I turned some leftover plastic Easter eggs into a little matching game for Sarah (and Will, when the time comes).  She's so into games right now, and she wins, like, 80% of the time.  We're taking her to Vegas with us the first chance we get.  Except I'm not allowed to go because I lose All. The. Time. Not on purpose.  Anyway, this was an idea I got from this blog about using plastic eggs to match the capital letter to its lowercase counterpart.

Sarah actually had a good time with it, and it was a nice quick check for me about what she knows and what we need to work on.

Next up was some din-din.  We tried both this foil-packed chicken and this Quick and Easy Coconut Curry Soup.  The verdict on both: Pin Win.

Of course, we tried out the flubber (which is still a hit after several days of play), and we had a little movie night featuring the Lorax, so there were Lorax Snax galore. 

I also made this little statement necklace for myself
 after my plain red coral necklace broke. At first it looked just like Martha's, but the coral beads were just too heavy and the middle section collapsed before I even had a chance to wear it.

By the way, the Dawn/white vinegar magic cleaner is not a hoax.  It works so much better than the 5 gallons of bleach I usually clean with, and it smells better too.

So, that's that for now.  Being back at work is taking some getting used to.  I miss my daily adventures with Sarah and Will, but we're all adjusting.
