King Pin | Pinterest Challenge 2



We're back at it again to attempt another round of Pins that we've pinned on Pinterest.  We do not guarantee that any of these will work, but we're going to give it a whirl and hope for the best.  The first time around was so much fun, we're doing it again!

If you want to join in on the fun, please leave a comment or contact one of us and we'll get you involved in the next round.  We'll have a new host for each challenge and would love to see some new faces get involved!

Goals of the challenge:
  1. Pick a Pin to recreate.  Could be a craft, could be a photo, could be a purchase... anything works.
  2. Attempt your Pin.
  3. Submit your results (in photos), show the good and the ugly...
  4. Wait for the post to post on host's blog.
  5. Post to your Pin Challenge on your own blog and link back to host.
These ladies have each picked their own pin and we're hoping to see how it went next Friday. So, what are we going to see this time around?

Well, to start us off... Sarah, who blogs at A Random Sampling will be attempting this Pin... which in my opinion is a sign that everyone should have in their home.



Next, we have Wendy, who blogs at A Couple More Hours and she's going attempt to make a very colorful button bouquet.  I cannot wait to see how this turns out!  Wendy is also the brain child of this challenge idea... Our first round of challenges are here, on her blog.


The third participant is Amber, who blogs at Write Here Write Now and she will be attempting something fun for her third craft attempt!  I think it looks like a perfect challenge choice.




Our forth participant is Sarah D., who blogs at Turtle Parade and she's going to attempt to make a very fun white board for her kitchen.  Looks easy and super cute!



The fifth participant is Jamie who blogs at Grumbles and Grunts and she's going to attempt to make the most delicious looking lemon cookies.  I told her that she must send me a sample of them when she is done so that I can write my own review about them.  YUM.  Love lemon!



Our sixth pin-challenger, is Farren Square (new face, welcome) who blogs at, well, Farren Square.  She's joining us for the first time and we're so jazzed to have her!  She'll be attempting to make an awesome looking potato salad.



Our seventh pinner, is Christina who blogs at Subfertile Frugalista (another new fast, welcome) and she's attempting two pins this week!  Ambitious!  The first one is an ornament with her wedding invitation cut into pieces for sentimental value... and the other is these darling cupcakes with lots of personality!





 
And, lastly... myself.  I'm going to attempt just one pin this week.  I plan on attempting this hand art and I won't be adding the bit about "father's day...", I'm just doing it to document hand size...  Too sweet.



Be sure to check back next Friday (09.02.11) for the challenge results!

Do you want to participate in the Pinterest Challenge? 
We'll do another one, promise, and you can join in!  Leave a comment and I will email the details to you.

lemon cooookiees!!!!!

really interesting to see the variety of what each of us want to try. and i think i almost enjoy the fail stories more than the successes, it's more important to know which ones don't work!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on webmd.com just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
