Loved my old roommate Steph's post about Pintrest.

When people who don't know you start to follow your boards... it makes you actually feel like you succeeded at life... or something like that.

Other people can pin things to your board!  So I don't have to do all the work planning my wedding, other people can find things for me.  (Did I mention I'm getting married?  I think it was eclipsed by the discovery of Pinterest.  But I'm getting married on August 4, 2012--Yay!)

In other Pintrest news, I just managed to find a photo of Paul Newman for almost every board category I have.

I absolutely adore that man. Cool Hand Luke has been one of my favorite movies since I was about 12. He had one of the longest celebrity marriages, is a great actor, and makes a mean salad dressing. Not to mention he's totally dreamy.

But, no joke, I get off the plane after 18 months in Italy and on the way to the car my mom goes, "You've got to get on Pintrest." The other day she said, "Can you grab my pintrest? I mean--iPad?" 

And she coined the term, "Pinster" women who's husbands leave them because they spend too much time on Pintrest. 

Jokes aside, I think it's fantastic because even people like me can be organized and if you can get through all the kitty pictures and cheesy quotes there's some really good stuff.

But it does kind of bug me that it seems to be upping the anty on everything, weddings, baked goods, houses...And no one feels creative anymore because it's like, "oh, you got that on Pintrest didn't you?" 

And I feel like there should be a style besides skinny jeans, boots, scarves, cardigan or pretty dress with heels.

Even if those are maybe my two favorite styles. 

I don't know how to give a bad review.

"oh, you got that on Pintrest didn't you?"

That has been my constant mental refrain for the past few months. It gets really bad when you go to a dinner party and start analyzing the food.
