Laughing at others and what I'm reading this week

Um yeah, so for a full hour instead of working on this post, I've been busting a gut over Pinterest fails.  I told myself earlier in the day I would NOT wait until 10pm to do my links.  It's 9:59:52pm.


So that I can get back to making myself feel better about my first attempt at cake pops, let's get to...

Now I'm going back to tormenting the Mr with my vast knowledge of 80's music.  I just blew his mind with Digging Your Scene by the Blow Monkeys when he thought he stumped me.


Any plans for the weekend?  What's your area of expertise for useless knowledge?

  1. Those pinterest fails look pretty much like what I would end up with if I tried any of those. Gotta hand it to them for trying I guess. Me? I know better than to even attempt half of those projects.

    1. What's really strange is the caterpillar cupcake fail that almost made me pee myself was oddly not there later that night. Even on online image searches. I know I didn't imagine it! You don't give yourself enough credit. After all, you originated the Woodstock Santa cookie!

  2. Really good articles. I have to say what I loved most about the fondue pots was the different colored tips on each of the forks. For whatever reason, I used to love taking them out of the box and play with them because of those colors. This weekend so far has consisted of a meeting, the vet, the apple orchard, cutting the lawn, dishes, laundry, a wonderful nap and now reading a good book. I'm very relaxed --who knows, maybe I'll sleep more than 3 hours for a change. I'm off to count sheep....

  3. Can't wait to read these today. I got a lotta blog catchin up to do 'cuz of the holiday, ;-)


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate your time! (Heads up though...disrespectful or spam comments will be deleted.)
