Do YOU Pinterest?

Two years ago (gosh was it THAT LONG AGO???) I hosted a Pampered Chef party for my friend Janell. We had so much fun that night…good food, good friends, laughter. At the end of the night Janell showed me this Pinterest thing. I didn’t see the big deal. I mean I remember her going ON and ON about how great it was…”just type something in – like chocolate- and all this great stuff will come up…recipes, projects, you name it.” It looked cool…it did…but not THAT cool. So Janell finished packing her things up, went home and I finished cleaning up from a fun night…then I turned on my computer and accepted the Pinterest invite that Janell had sent to me. I spent the next hour…ok maybe 2…searching, clicking, pinning onto my newly formed boards. I was hooked!  Flash forward to the present:  I’m now the one sending friends invites to Pinterest, Janell is sharing something new with everyone and is loving it, and  I’m still totally addicted to Pinterest and now am trying to figure out how to use it as a social media tool for my business as well (THAT seems to be an elusive tool for me…)  Are YOU a Pinterest addict?  Post below so I can follow you…and click here to follow me!

Do you Pinterest?  I go on to Pinterest less than I used to…and I actually USE what I pin more.  Tonight I’m going to a PInterest party co-hosted by a good friend of mine.  We were asked to bring something yummy to share, found on pinterest obviously.

I’m taking Pumpkin Pesto…I changed the recipe up a little bit.  I used Butternut Squash infused oil in place of 1/2 of the called for olive oil.  I also added cinnamon, nutmeg and a few crushed red pepper flakes.  I would like if it was a bit brighter in color but yum does it tasted good!  I sliced and toasted a multi-grain baguette to use as dippers and will also cut up some celery sticks for a low carb alternative (important for Project Fabulous.)


It was tough to choose what to take…I mean SO MANY choices!  I can’t wait to see what everyone brings to share tonight.  It should be a delicious girls night of fun.  I also can not wait to see what craft/project we will be making…I’ll be sure to post a picture.

What are some of your favorite Pinterest crafts and foods? Have you ever hosted a Pinterest party?  I’m thinking I need to plan my own!  Want to come?

If only I could just wiggle my nose or nod my head to make it all come true…

Summer has ended…camper is closed.  Now the laundry room is overflowing with laundry…seriously I can barely see the floor!  So today was spent doing…yep you guessed it…LAUNDRY!  In between loads though I managed to create my own special Project Fabulous organizing binder.  Ok so I didn’t really NEED a special binder but its me and I really like binders and organizing.  Anyway, special binder… I took a before picture as well as my measurements.  Nothing like THAT to put things into perspective.  AAAHH!  If only I could channel Bewitched or I Dream of Jeannie and achieve my goals with a wiggle of my nose or a nod of my head!

Todays Steps:  Completed my initial Fit Test (can’t wait until I can say THAT is EASY!), created meal plan for self and set up project notebook.



Project Fabulous

today is the day

Well once you write it down it becomes real right? Well this is me…writing down the plan for Project Fabulous…making it real… Anyone want to join me in this adventure? Feel free…I’m sure I could use the company! Comment below, send me messages, post your own accomplishments.

So here I go…Making the changes to reach 40 fabulously!  Easy peasy…right?  I mean I do this for other people every day.  Identify problems, challenges and create plans to incorporate healthy habits and personal routines to make goals reality.  And since I’m positively convinced this is of utmost importance to everyone (insert very LARGE sarcastic grin here) I’m creating a public “project.”   I’ll share the ups, downs, adventures, frustrations along the way.  I’m hoping some of you will do the same because this could get very boring very fast! LOL The things I get myself into…

The Project:  Celebrate 40 Fabulously!

The Plan:  Make some changes, learn some new things and embrace fabulous in mind, body & spirit.

The Intentions:  Get physically healthy & fit, get organized at home, reconnect and/or spend more time with friends and family, start using Pinterest instead of just “pinning,” and be fully present in life.

Baby steps…each day I’ll focus on at least one task.  I’ll photo, document, share with all of you…you don’t have to start your own project…it’s ok I’ll do this on my own.  (but if you WANTED to start your own project…if you WANTED to comment here and share…well I wouldn’t be UPSET or anything…LOL)
