O How Pinteresting! 10/5/11

Pinteresting Wednesdays actually stems from The Vintage Apple blog. The image above links to that blog. Check it out!

Here are some of my favorite pins from this week.

This first one is not something that I found this week. But I did find it on Pinterest and I did make it this week!! It is a very yummy Cream of Potato soup. It has shredded hash browns, chicken stock, Cream of Chicken soup, onion and cream cheese; which you put in the crock pot and let it cook all day. It does have a very thin consistency so I added 3Tbs of flour to 1cup of water to help thicken it up. Also, the recipe says to add the cream cheese an hour before serving, mine didn't completely melt in an hour. So next time I'll either let my cream cheese sit out and soften so it isn't so cold or put it in earlier. But melted cream cheese or not, it was still VERY yummy!! Perfect for Fall ....once it gets here. LOL

I did find a recipe this week. It was for Pumpkin Spice Coffee Syrup so you can make Latte's at home!! Plus I found a really cute "Keep Calm" Poster to match. I'm really lovin' the "Keep Calm" posters, they make me laugh. :)

While Pinning this week I kept finding cute ideas for things to put on your fridge. I would've never thought to put magnets on the back of things like Spice tins, Buttons and Christmas Blubs. But I Love it!!! I can see some new Button magnets making their debut sometime in the near future. LOL

The more I pin, the more I wish I could do certain crafty things like knitting. Well this week, I really wished that I could Sew!! I kept coming across really cute stuff that I could make if I just knew how to sew and had a sewing machine. lol Probably the cutest thing I saw were these Adipose plushies. Yes, I am a Doctor Who Geek but, but... I LOVE the little Adipose plushies!! I want

For the Whovian's that can sew, HERE'S the pattern for the Adipose plushies!

Okay, so we all know that I love nail polish!! Something that most people do not know about me is the fact that I would love to have a mood ring. (Thanks to the Song Mood Rings by Relient K) Soooo, when I saw the MOOD nail polish, I fell in love!! I Must find this nail polish...and a Mood Ring for that !! lol

I want to finish my Pinteresting Wednesday with a little bit of Wednesday Wisdom. "Life is like a Roller Coaster; it has it's ups and downs. But it's your choice to scream or enjoy the ride." <3

  1. Keep the yummy sounding recipes coming!

  2. Mmmm, I agree with Julie! I'm pretty sure that I've already pinned that soup recipe (from you) and I'm going to make it this weekend or early next week. It sounds great!

    I know what you mean about wishing you could sew or knit. There are so many great ideas on Pinterest and some of them that I really like require skills that I just don't have (yet)! I've pinned a few projects that I want to work on with my mom, so that should get me started.

    I guess I should start doing my own "Oh How Pinteresting Wednesday" too. It looks like a lot of fun! :)

  3. I just noticed that I have barely posted any comments on your blog and I thought you should know why. BLOGSPOT DOESN'T LIKE ME!!!

    Seriously, I have tried commenting your posts MANY times and it just would NOT let me post using my Wordpress credentials. I tried posting on your hubby's blog a couple of days ago and it wouldn't let me either.

    I'm researching to see what I could be doing wrong or if there's a solution, but meanwhile I'll just use my Google account when commenting on your posts.

  4. I will definitely keep the recipes coming, I have soooooo many of them I may just have to one Wednesday (or a couple) completely devoted to them. lol

    Hedwig I would encourage you to do the Pinteresting Wednesdays, actually I would encourage anyone. It is a lot of fun! And my secret is if you are really busy and can't get to it ON Wednesday, do it ahead of time and schedule it for Wednesday. I've been doing mine over the weekend so I don't forget and I've been spending my week nights find pins. ;) lol

  5. Yeah I've gotten the impression that Word Press and Blogspot don't like each other. I have added your blog to my favorites so that it shows up on my home page and it won't ever save it. :( At least it saves it to my actual blog page tho. :)
