What do I Pin now that Christmas has passed?

Unrelated to this Pinteresting post: boyfriend surprised me with a date night last night and shuttled me off to PF Changs for supper (yea, that was fun to under-estimate WW points, psh) and then to see Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Now, I know that Robbie Downey, Jr. had a moment of cray cray a few years ago, but I think he's recovered with all of the style and quirkiness that makes him HIM and can imagine no other actor playing this part! I said that to Brian and he immediately threw out Johnny Depp's name, but I disagree-- I might be the one woman on the planet who does not see the appeal in Mr. Depp... like at all. The long, greasy hair, the eyeliner... doesn't do it for me. Mr. Downey on the other hand... he's easy on my eyes!

Long story short, go see this movie! I liked it a lot more than the first Sherlock.


Honestly? I spent a lot of my time pre-Christmas Pinning things that I wanted to accomplish during Christmas. Looking back... I Pinned a lot of things that NEVER HAPPENED. They were never created, baked, organized or refinished. But oh well. That's what the whole new year is for, am I right?

Since I'd like to both enter and go out of 2012 with a bang, I'll share a few lovelies that have inspired me in one way or another lately. I'm linking up with The Vintage Apple for Oh, how Pinteresting! Wednesday, per usual-- stop by and check in with all of the fellow linker-uppers!


This wraparound porch melts the southern girl inside of me.

Love this.

No wedding planning yet, but I love this sweet little addition to a place setting!

To all of the "Ohh you're being GOOD today" commenters at work, I say:

I might THINK this... a lot. A lot a lot.

Superbowl Party Planning 101

I'll take one of each, please.

Looove my Marley Lilly-- a monogrammed double casserole tote!

Next project: a tray for our new ottoman!

Individual dip cups! Messes & community double-dippers no more.

Oh, Pheebs :)

My current mantra.

A sweet way to start the day... if we both remember to do it.

Happy Housewarming! Could I justify making/giving this for/to myself?

Maybe I'll just spend the next 44 days getting ready for Valentine's Day. I'm a BIG believer in the V-Day.

Happy Wednesday, my lovelies!
