Pintrest ♥

My newest love is Pintrest....Warning if you do not pin, do not start. I know that sounds crazy. I mean My first sentence is about how much I love it, and then sentence number two says do not do it. Crazy, I know....

Why not start? Because it is highly addictive, you will get lost for hours, pinning all these wonderful, lovely ideas.

The whole concept is seeing something you like and pinning the idea on a big virtual pin board.  I have been pinning recipe ideas, craft ideas, hair ideas, and so on.

I finally took the the time a few weeks back to actually try one of the projects I pinned.  I basically took my boring old looking knife block and spruced it up.

Here is the finished project.

I love it...Makes my knives look so much better.

Recently I found the cutest idea for home made valentines.  The kids and I had fun making them, thank you pinterest.

and the winner is .....

Bella boo, won her first high point award for swimming on Sunday! Oh was I so proud, that girl is turning into quite the swimmer.

Lots of big, important meets coming up in the next month. HeartSmart, Divisionals and State. Then the short course season is done until the end of April when long course season will begin. I am so excited for that, cause D3 is trying out for the team. We have been practicing and working so hard to swim 25yards.

This swim mom has even starting to practice.  I have been getting up at 4:50am, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to swim at the pool from 5:30-6:30am.  I decided that if my kids can work that hard so can I.  My goal is to be able to swim the open water mile at a lake this summer.  I told D1 I would swim it beside her, so now I have to whip my rear end into shape so that I can actual accomplish this task.
