Pinterest; or, Like I Need Another Thing to Do Online

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

Have you heard of Pinterest? It seems that, as usual, I’m slightly behind the social-media times. (See: Twitter.) So many of my blogging friends have already joined Pinterest and written tutorials that there would be no reason for me to do the same.

So, if you’re on Pinterest, look me up. I am – what else – Vanderbilt Wife.  Something I’m trying to do that might interest you is a visual menu plan. For example, here are all the recipes I had planned for 6/27 to 7/10 (I plan and shop two weeks at a time).

As I cook the recipes, I’m trying to remember to go and leave a little review. If you love cooking, like me, you might find these useful! Just having pictures of all those recipes I had bookmarked in various places on my Yummy in the Tummy and Dips Apps Dessert boards has been wonderful. So much easier for menu-planning purposes. I’ve already tried several recipes I’d been thinking about for months. Having them stare me in the face with their goodness was enough for me to take the plunge and cook!


Here are some of my favorite things I’ve discovered through Pinterest:

Ladybug Party at Bee in Our Bonnet
Balsamic and Onion Potroast at Kalyn’s Kitchen
Super Duper Monster Rubber Stamp at Etsy

So tell me … do you Pin? 


And P.S. I WILL be back with “Why I Friday” this week! Get your posts ready to link up!

  1. I would love to pin, however, I went to the site and asked for an invite and have yet to receive one. So, alas, I must drool over others pinnings and wait for my invite.

    On another note, have you been invited to join google+ yet? I'd love to get on there also.

  2. Between Pinterest and Google+, I'm rearranging my internet interests. Like you, however, I really didn't need another thing to do online!

  3. Hi, my name is Miranda and I Pin :). I got an invite and am really liking Pinterest. I especially love getting meal and dessert ideas as well as some party ideas as well. My daughter's second birthday is coming up and we are going with a Mickey theme. Oh & I'm randi094 on there too.

  4. Thanks for the links, Jessie. I haven't had time to check out the tutorials. I'm really afraid to get involved with another time suck. But, who am I kidding? I'll be obsessed soon:) I love the recipes you pin!
