Whew! I am late out of that gate tonight! I had a last minute sewing emergency involving a certain 4 year old and an irresolvable incongruence about whether tomorrow is white day or purple day at school...
Anyway. Are you ready to see some
First, I'd like to share a little pinaholic confession.
Bye Bye Birdie fans out there? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Ah, well. I can't help it, I still think of old school letter sweaters, poodle skirts and saddle shoes when someone talks about pinning someone.
First in our "very Pinteresting" list, I'd like to share something I pinned a very looooong time ago - so it defies the whole "things I pinned this week" rule (which isn't really a hard and steadfast, anyway, more like a guideline).

Ever get the feeling that nothing you do will measure up to anything worthwhile, let alone the amazing things you see other people do... let alone you're a blob of a mom who can't do anything right... let alone you're just plain tired and don't want to get out of bed? Let alone, you use so many run-on sentences and repetitious phrases your English Lit. professor would cringe? Well, if so, then try to remember this:
