Pin Obsessed

October 11, 2011

I guess I spoke too soon about the chilly weather yesterday. . . . It was 25* this morning (instead of 30* yesterday)!

Once again, I ran with a fellow teacher this morning at 5:30 a.m. She is really bubbly and outgoing, so she keeps me entertained. It’s fun. 🙂

We talked about school (of course), running (of course), and the fact we are both not ready for winter!!

We covered 6 miles in 51:30. My GPS was charged and ready to go this time. 🙂

When I first heard about Pinterest, I was really confused. I didn’t understand the concept and what all the hoopla was about. But, of course, since “everyone was doing it,” I thought I’d better hop on board too.

At first it seemed really pointless to me. . . . just looking through a bunch of random pictures to pin onto a virtual bulletin board?!?! That seems silly. But then I thought, well, what form of relaxation (watching TV, surfing the Internet, etc.) isn’t pointless anyway?

Within a couple of weeks of being on Pinterest, I got hooked. I can’t say I am crazyily addicted, but I do enjoy visiting the site a couple times a week to dream about the house I will never own, clothes I will never be able to afford, or the crafts I just don’t have time to make. 😕

    1. Nice work on the run! I’ve never been on Pinterest. I think you need an invite? I will say someone pinned a recipe of mine on there and I was pretty stoked about that! I love that closet but I think a washer-dryer where you hang your clothes is asking for a leak and then all my shoes would be ruined. Haha. That pudding sounds delish and I own the bowl that is in the pic! It’s from Crate & Barrel. 😀

      1. You don’t need an invite from someone else. . . .you request an invite from Pinterest. (It sounds much fancier than it really is.)

        That is exciting someone pinned one of your recipes!!

        I never thought about the washer leaking!?!?

        1. I joined! It was overwhelming at first but I think I got the hang of it. I’ll follow you! I only thought of the washer leaking because a girl I know had it happen with her washer being upstairs and it did 10K in damage to the house! Yikes!!

    1. I love Pinterest! There are some cool things on there. I have actually picked up a lot of great decorating tips and ideas on fall fashions! Great way to “multi-task”! 😉

    1. I love that I can keep track of recipes I want to try or gifts I want to buy for the holidays. It works much better for me than bookmarking because I would always forget that I actually bookmarked things. I’m following your boards now. 🙂

    1. i love using pinterest to find DIY and crafts. I love to make things myself but am not nearly creative enough to come up with it on my own.

      any chance you want a new running buddy tomorrow morning…maybe for 18-ish miles? I’ll be in Anchorage and need to get in a long run!

      1. I would love a running buddy tomorrow! What time were you thinking? I will need to do grades from 9 a.m. – 3 or 4:00 p.m.–although this is slightly flexible. Let me know what you think.

    1. I love Pinterest. So addicting. I think I may have seen it first on your site…
      I just took up running again and I primarilly run outside. I was never sure about how far we were going. I finally broke down and bought the Garmin 305. I have really enjoyed it.
