Fifteen in 2015

Y'all, I'm going to be super honest today. I have a LOT of blogging ideas written down, drafted, in my head, quite literally everywhere. However, there's a lot that I'm really not ready to share as of yet. This is where Cassie has come to my rescue with her "15 Blog Prompts for 2015"
I'll be the first to admit that I will pin to my little heart's desire on pinterest all day long. It's not nearly as organized as some other blogger's pinterest accounts might be. I try. I make new boards and everything, but I know it's still a mess. When I saw Cassie's prompt for trying new things, I immediately thought of my pinterest boards. I haven't done A SINGLE thing that pinterest has inspired me to pin. Sad, huh? Well, this is a new year and it calls for things to change around these neck of the woods. All of these are items I've pinned (via Pinterest) over the years.
Five New Foods:
2. Avocado Mashed Potatoes

3. Portobello Pizzas
4. Panko Coated Veggies
5. Cucumber Rolls

Five (hand-made) Gift Ideas:
1. Lip Gloss
2. Candy Flavored Vodka

3. Birthday Board (This would be perfect for my parents!)

4 & 5. Two different "gifts in a jar". This pin has 37 different recipes for gifts in a jar. Ranging anywhere from cake in a jar to pies in a jar. How fun, right? I will do at least two of these this year!

Five Crafts with the Kids:
1. Bubble Paint
2. Spaghetti Painting
3. Homemade Flubber!

4. Ice Cream in a Bag. This would be perfect for the outrageously hot Georgia Summer!
5. Snow globes. My kids love these and we can find them at the dollar store so easily, but how fun would it be to make them? It's settled. We're doing it!
Would you try any of these? Oh, and don't worry! As the year progresses and we do these, I WILL be updating the blog with any successes and/or failures. Because where's the fun if I don't, right?

In true Wednesday fashion,
I'm linking up with Anne for Wednesday Wishes.
Love the Here and Now
My wish is that y'all help keep me accountable. Because obviously I can pin away but I may need a reminder or a nudge from someone saying, "hey, done any crafts with Ainsley lately?" haha! I also wish that y'all try something new this year as well! It's only February! We have all year to get out of our comfort zones and explore! Try that new recipe or redecorate your house!

  5. I am guilty of pinning and never producing too. So many great things to try so little time. I have made the snow globes though and they were super easy and super cute!

  6. oooh, good to know the snow globes are easy! I actually have more food and drink pins than crafts and gifts pins, but I will do them! :) Glad to hear I'm not alone in pinning and running. LOL

  10. I have pinned SO much and rarely revert back to them! When I'm really looking for inspiration for a post though I'll go through them. All of the food you posted looks delicious!!!

  11. I've never used pinterest for post ideas. Now there's a thought! I really can't wait to try the food! Esp the pizzas. All of them look line they're vegetarian too! Winner for you!

  12. Here's accountability - you tell me when you're planning on doing a craft with Ainsley and I'll try it the same day with Bug!!! We can compare experiences ha. I think she'd love all of the ones you pinned there - of course, the messier the better lol. (I have a goal on my 101 in 1001 to try 15 each of recipes, crafts, and activities that I've pinned over the years because I rarely do...I also have to publish my 101 in 1001 LOL because I haven't done that yet either!!)
