Good morning.  It's my birthday weekend and I have some chickies coming over for crafting, so with the pressure on to get the house in order and no time to dawdle, I thought I would post a few pins I've tried and love... Wish me luck in getting the pins and pics posted properly... it will either be a boon or a bust!

Okay, but wait.  Heather pinned a bunch of chihuahua pups, so I have to look at them, look at my pic of my chihuahua and debate on whether I should post a pic of Junior because he's blond but his nose and all is liver, not black like all the others.  No posting.  Back to the task at hand.
Peach Smoothies... I fixed these for a brunch and we now have them every other Sunday (when I remember to pick up frozen peaches).  Very yummy.  And yes, ours look just like that.
(Summer) Peach Smoothie 2 cups fresh orange juice 1 cup peach greek yogurt 2 cups frozen sliced peaches 2 tablespoons raw honey or 1 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon nutmeg Blend all the ingredients until smooth.
I also made these Brie and Apple Tarts, several times.  Very yummy too.
Brie and Apple Tarts - also made this with swiss - delish!
Next, Strawberry upside down cake.  Good but wasn't crazy about it, for some reason.  You may think differently.

Fig and Proscuitto Pizza from Pioneer Woman.  To.Die.For - this was my first foray into Pinterest Recipes, I believe.  I need to make this again.  It was so friggin awesome.

Oh, and Crescent Rolls Chicken - really good (and no, not so good for you) but nice dinner.  I made it a second time with Harvest Tomato soup - not so yummy.

I made this last night, simple and fabulous

Julia has many good recipes on her board - good inspiration.  (is there bad inspiration?)  I'm running out of time ...
You will notice there are about 150 pins on my Craftiness board.  Dang, I'd better get busy.  Here are a few projects I've tried...

Monopoly Box - I'm constantly on the lookout for games at my thrift store.

And nows a good time to make these... think we'll do that today.  In looking at this board, man I've bought alot of supplies - I need to get crackalackin... for sure!

Oh, wait - just one question.  Am I the only one that does this.  Do you see a blog post or a pin and then become obsessed with buying the supplies?  When I saw a gumball machine filled with white buttons, I was possessed.  Personality flaw I guess... Hope you enjoy your weekend.
