WEEKLY PINspirations - Week No. 1

Happy Monday!  It is not as happy as Friday, but I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  It was a little damp here in North Carolina, so I was able to catch up on some things around the house.  Always a good time, huh?

I have decided to bring you my Weekly PINspirations every Monday.  These will be what I have found in the past or recently on my favorite source of social media, Pinterest, that have inspired me.  I will try to show you something in each of the following categories: Something to Organize, Something to Make, Something to Clean, Something to Eat, Something to Wear and Something to Live By.

I will also be taking one of my PINspirations and showing you how I have made it my own.  The reveal will most likely be the Wednesday after the PINspiration is posted, however, it may be sooner.  You will just have to check back often to see. *wink wink*

This week's PINspirations are (drum roll please...):

Something to Organize:  This family command center by One Creative Housewife was the very one that inspired me to make one of my own.  I loved the calendar and white board ideas as well as the different cubbies for each child's paperwork, mail and other documents.  I also loved the initial for the last name (this is cut off in my pic).  It is a family command center after all.

Something to Make:  My poor fur babies desperately need a new bed!  They share one, which is super cute, but it wasn't always that way.  We bought the bed for Zeek because Yogi was crate trained.  When we did away with the crate, Yogi decided he would room with Zeek.  The bed is too small for them and is totally dilapidated.  This one is made of pallets and it just so happens I have a few left over in my garage...hence the PINspiration for a DIY project idea.

Something to Clean:  Toilet Fizzies are sort of a twist between something to make and something to clean.  I found these while just surfing through Pinterest trying to find homemade cleaners.  You are supposed to be able to drop these in the toilet (after flushing) and leave them to make your toilet smell fresh.  Sure beats lighting matches!  I'm definitely going to try this one!

Something to Wear:  Snow is thawing and Spring is coming!  This coming week we are supposed to see lower to mid 70's where I am.  Can we say YAY!!!!  To me that is still not shorts weather, but I will definitely be breaking out the capri pants.  I don't get to display my style often or even think about it too hard with the kids, the Hubs, and all of our activities, but I still like to try.  It makes me feel human, girly, and like I am 22 again!  This outfit is just the right style for this Momma on the go in this week's weather forecast.  I love the coral and grey for the spring and the pairing of the scarf and flip flops.  I can't wait to try this one on for size!

Something to Eat:  Swimsuit season is just around the corner and I am trying to watch what I eat, but a salad just isn't the same without ranch dressing.  This is a ranch dressing recipe made with plain Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise.  I haven't tried it yet, but I will be sure to let you know when I do.  If you have tried this, let me know if you liked it!

Something to Live By:  We all have our reasons for getting fit, staying fit or losing the winter jiggle.  I just thought this quote was a funny, but true one to live by.  Even if your first source of motivation is not for everyone to think you look great, it surely is a perk!  We all like a compliment once in a while.  I hope you think of this little quote while you are struggling to breath on the elliptical this week.  I know I will!

If you would like to see the original pins in this week's PINspirations, visit my Pinterest page and look under PINspirations.  Also, be sure to check back later this week to see which PINspiration(s) I have tried.  I hope you all have a fabulous week!

  1. I made spinach dip with greek yogurt instead of sour cream and it was yummy!

  2. That bed is adorable! I have dogs but the smaller one constantly tears the fluff out of his bed. I could do this and have a fluff-free pad!



  3. These are such great pins! I love that motivational quote and the pet bed would be super cute! Looking forward to seeing what you make this week!
