this is fantastic (pinterest edition)

18 Oct

We all know and love Pinterest. To me…such a genius idea. Keeps me organized (or…just helps me waste time). Here’s some really fantastic recently pinned stuff.

I am a big fan of shopping early for Christmas gifts (as in shopping in July). When I see something that I think someone will like, I try to get it. Then I’m not scrambling 2 days before Christmas. I’m also a HUGE fan of exploiting my kids for my own gain kid-made Christmas gifts. I do think they’re heartfelt and can sometimes be more meaningful than junk that’s going to be thrown away in a year. Here is a great gift idea from theycallmedomestiCate

This is just fantastic.

Ninja’s really do rule. While we’re on this subject, you should check out two of my nephews’ video…“Ninjandrew”. It’s pretty fantastic.

I’m sure these will be my kids one day (sorry family).

I am at work today (since I’ve come back to work after the boys I haven’t been working on Fridays.  That part isn’t so fantastic) and it’s lunch time.  So I was stumbling around…here are some things I found.

Want to find a color palette that you love?  This website lets you choose and color or theme and go from there!  So helpful.

Check out these super cute bunk bed “summer” rooms (oh, if only I could “summa” somewhere).  I see bunk beds in my future…but all year long.

I have always wanted a window seat…a place to curl up and read or knit or watch the birds and listen to the waves.

We have a small really.  It’s small.  BUT…it’s the biggest I’ve ever had as an adult.  Same with the hubs.  I once lived in an apartment that was 300 square feet total.  I know to people in New York City (pronounced like I am the star of the Pace picante sauce commercial) that might seem gargantuan.  But we live on the coast of North Carolina.  Plenty of space to be had here.

And for the grand finale…this is a tape of a baby hearing his mother’s voice for the first time with a cochlear implant…I know.  It’s a kicker.

Happy Weekend everyone!

Doesn’t watching the Olympics inspire you to get into super duper shape? I Learve the Olympics and watch all the sports I can. Right now, I’m watching the women’s semifinal beach volleyball. Misty May-Trainor and Kerri Walsh Jennings are my heroes. And I want their abs. I know I’m watching everything after it has happened. But I don’t care.

U. S. A!

I’ve been meaning to update all of you. I have pictures and things…ways I’ve been getting through each day of bed rest (which I have to say is not nearly as bad as I thought it would be…I’ll let you know if I still agree with myself in two weeks).

But for now, I have a few pretty cool things.

Stop by here to find out how this room got from here:

When I previewed this post, it made me want to change things up….maybe I will!

Happy Friday!

Makes me want to try.

One day I would love a library that looks like this:

I want business cards like these:

Really I just want a business like Steep Street (where the above business card came from). I think Kelty is awesome and you should check her out, too!

We can always dream, can’t we.

I think I’ve shown you the 360 tour of the Sistine Chapel…I think.

Well, you must take a look at this.

It’s a 360 view of Paris from over the Eiffel Tower. You can see the Eiffel Tower at the bottom of the shot below. I love these 360 degree engines. I know they don’t give you the feeling of what it’s really like to be there…but seriously, doesn’t it just make you in awe of the internet in general?


where did the time go?

Where did this post go?  I wrote it, and then it disappeared.  I should have copied it first.


More to come later.

While it’s not Friday, I haven’t had a “this is fantastic” post in a while.

So here goes.

I love these snarky cards. All found here.

Happy Tuesday!

I haven’t had a “this is fantastic” post in a while. It doesn’t mean I haven’t seen anything fantastic….just means I’ve been to lazy to post.

But I have a treat for you this week.

This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. This put a huge smile on my face. I really want to know how to do this.
