Project Pinterest: Gradient Nail Manicure

This is one of my favorite things I've done from Pinterest! I am normally not that in to doing my fingernails, but once I saw this, I couldn't help but head to Walgreens, get some polish, and get going on this project.

I got it from Makeup Withdrawal.

Mine turned out less than perfect, but from a distance it looks so pretty; kind of like a sunset!

It's super easy to do too! Be sure to go check out the easy steps at Makeup Withdrawal!

Sandee and I have decided to do a Project Pinterest linky once a month instead of once a week. Please join us every 1oth of the month, starting in June! You can link up multiple projects too!

Here are the guidelines for Project Pinterest:

1. Decide which pin on Pinterest you’d like to recreate.

2. Create it!

3. Flop or success, create a blog post about your re-do and include the original pin’s url.

4. Add the Project Pinterest button to your post so others can join in too!

5. Link up and check out other bloggers’ posts!

Out and About in Matlacha, FL

My aunt (do you say 'ant' or 'ohnt'?) and uncle have lived in little Matlacha, FL for 30 years, give or take a few. I have visited there numerous times and am just shocked by how much it's changed in the eight years I've been gone. It's almost like a little Key West now. What's neat about this town is that all of the residential area has canals as back yards. Growing up in South Dakota and going down there to FL was always such a culture shock to me. Now though, living in South Carolina, it doesn't feel as different as I remember it feeling as a kid.

While my boys and uncle were out on the boat (you can see those pictures here), my aunt and I had some time to lollygag around the town. I was in awe of how much it's changed.

Have a great week!

Project Pinterest: Gross Grease Solution

I HATE the grease that bacon and hamburger leave behind. I used to strain or pour the grease into a tin can if I had one available. The problem is that I don't use a lot of canned goods so there have been many times where I haven't had a can available to use. I've done many ridiculous things like waiting for the grease to solidify and scrape it out in the trash. In the process I'd get it on me and I was never happy about that.

I just saw that I pinned this 11 weeks ago. Back then (yeah, waaaayyy back then) I didn't check to make sure what I was pinning came from an original link. I just tried to trace this one back and can't find the original post. So, I can't give credit to anyone.

Here's my bacon grease. I like to broil bacon. I used a chipped bowl and put tin foil gently into the bowl, being careful so that the foil didn't rip.

Then I put it in the freezer and took out the tin foil ball in the Thursday's trash!

What did you do this week?

Here are the guidelines for Project Pinterest:

1. Decide which pin on Pinterest you’d like to recreate.
2. Create it!
3. Flop or success, create a blog post about your re-do and include the original pin’s url.
4. Add the Project Pinterest button to your post so others can join in too!
5. Link up and check out other bloggers’ posts!

Project Pinterest: Frozen (and Delicious!) Limeade Pie

I got this easy frozen limeade pie recipe from When Pigs Fly. I remembered eating this as a child and totally feeling so refreshed by it.

There's only four's as easy as pie! ;)

Frozen Limeade Pie

graham cracker crust
can of frozen limeade, thawed
8 oz container of Cool Whip, thawed
can of sweetened condensed milk

Mix all ingredients and put in graham cracker crust. Freeze for a few hours until frozen. Or, do like I did and only freeze it for an hour because you can't wait any longer.


It won't come out beautifully if you don't freeze it long enough, but it sure will taste refreshing!

Here are the guidelines for Project Pinterest:

1. Decide which pin on Pinterest you’d like to recreate.
2. Create it!
3. Flop or success, create a blog post about your re-do and include the original pin’s url.
4. Add the Project Pinterest button to your post so others can join in too!
5. Link up and check out other bloggers’ posts!

It's on the Tip of My Tongue

And, my pick from last week's Project Pinterest is Amy from While Wearing Heels! She made some adorable flower cupcakes for her adorable little daughter! Amy, I'll send your your "I've Been Featured on Project Pinterest" button via email!

DSLR or P&S?

About half of these shots were taken with my old point and shoot. Amazingly enough, I love some of these shots just as much as I love the shots with my DSLR. Can you tell which was shot with a P&S and which was shot with a DSLR?
