Are You Pinterested in Me? Good. Let's Make Out.

Are any of you guys into Pinterest? Because lately, I have been really enjoying wasting time on it. Like maybe a little too much. My husband, the spectacular Cap'n Coupon, insists that it's stupid and makes no sense and no one knows what it is and I'm the only one in the whole world who knows about it and that it's actually called "Pictureka".

Dude said the same thing about Angry Birds and Words with Friends. He knows nothing. He joined Facebook in 2011. He thought the adults on there were either sexual predators or trying to hook up with people they went to high school with and I was like: "Well, I'm Facebook friends with your mom, so..."

Pictureka - CRAP. I mean Pinterest, is a social networking site where you can share stuff, but its all based on photos. You create categories - called boards. You pin pictures onto the boards. You follow people, and see what they pin. They follow you back (like Twitter or Facebook) and you look at everyone's pins and basically see stuff that's pretty or yummy or cool. It's really fun but a total time suck.

If you would like to see what we've pinned, you can find us here: www.Pinterest.com/mommylandrants

We have several different boards. Here is what they're called and a sample of what you can find there:

Board #1 is called: ::Snicker::



Board #2 is called: So! Cute! I! Die!
This picture prompted a conversation between me and the Cap'n.
Lydia: HOW CUTE IS THIS?!
Cap'n: It's very cute, honey. WAIT. Dear GOD. What is that small creature doing to that flower?!
Lydia: I don't know what you mean. Oh... I don't... Golly.
Cap'n: I'll tell you what's going on right there. He's deflowering it.


Board #3 is called: Things Kate Will Hate

The sight of these shoes probably made her throw up in her mouth. I love that.

Board #4 is called: I want to go and to live there in that.
It's a motherf*cking tree house.
Board #5 is called: Oooohhh Pretty!

It is orange and beautiful and I love orange things.

Board #6 is called: Oh Even Yesser

I want this tattooed on the inside of my eyelids.

Board #7 is called: I Would Put That in My Mouth

Skittle vodka. Holy crap.


Board #8 is called: Wait. Whuck?

Please tell me that me and George Takei and Kate from Michigan are not the only ones who think this is awesome.
Board #9 is called: LOVE

We really can, hookers.Thank you, Glennon.
Also! This sign was made by a fellow hooker at Barn Owl Primitives!
Board #10 is called: Squirrels
(You have to imagine me saying "Squirrels" the way Jerry Seinfeld said "Newman!" - because of the hate in my heart.)

This could happen.
Hope to see you guys over there!
xo, Lydia

  1. Skittles vodka is yummy but takes way too much time. As in, days. I gave up and just ate all the skittles.

  2. yeah Pinterest appeals to my organizational, yet forgetful nature. I'm loving it! and I love your categories :)

  3. I refuse to join. I am afraid because everyone tells me it is addictive. Plus, I am not crafty. Like...if it takes more than a stapler it's not happening. My husband is artistic and draws all these awesome pictures for my son on demand and so does my next door neighbor. Then he asks me to do it, and I'm like....oh peanut. How bout a cookie? My Dad told me this past October that there is nothing like a home made halloween costume and blah blah love for your child and THE TRUE MEANING OF BLAH( he did make many of our costumes) I was bugged for a moment and then told him the Super Crafty Folk at Pottery Barn Kids and Visa were going to be handling that for me.

  4. I like to say squirrel like they do in Christmas Vacation: SQUIRReeeeeeeeLLLL. I agree that squirrel are evil and might be planning a takeover. Plus they think my deck is some time of 70's era rumpus room.

  5. Pintrest is awesome because it allows me to pretend I'm crafty and awesome when I'm just simply wasting time online. I can be like...oh I'm looking up these recipes to make and "getting inspired to redo the basement" when in fact I'm just looking at stupid stuff and pretending I'm going to actual use all that information I gather.

    1. HAHA Momma Baer!
      As I was scrolling down to comment, I saw yours. Almost exactly what I was going to say!

      Oh, dear....... help me!

  6. Oh yes! I am truly addicted to the site. So much so that I started a blog about all the pins I've tried - or want to try. Or have tried, and miserably failed. Now that I read the names of your boards, mine just seem boring... check out the blog - www.apinterestaddict.com

  7. Pinterest is like a big, black hole. i LOVE it.
    Thanks so much for sharing my 'we can do hard things' sign!

  8. 'I Would Put That In My Mouth' BAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Best Board name ever. I'm dying! :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Love my Pinterest... I'm up to 30 boards of awesomeness.

    ReplyDelete
  10. umm if you just waste a little too much time on it then I think I am addicted and spend way too much time on it. I've only got 31 boards and over 400 pins, with more coming soon I'm sure. http://pinterest.com/heidijens1/

  11. EAU. MAH. GAH!

    I laughed and snorted so gleefully to the "it puts the lotion in the basket" that my poor old basset hound rolled over and peed on the couch. Thanks.

    And that was BEFORE I saw my name on there. You know me too well. And that makes my heart squee!

  12. Just another reason to LOVE Kate and Lydia! You totally understand my Pinterest Addiction!!! <3

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love, Love, Love Pinterest!!!! And I totally forget that I have kids while pinning :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. After maliciously inviting me in, a "friend" described Pinterest as this: Pinterest is a huge black hole of awesomeness. But inevitably will be used to charge someone with child neglect and will wreck marriages and cause firings. So true

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah, I'm addicted. I'm in it mainly for the recipes because 1) I'm not crafty (craftsy?) so the crap that people think to do with a Mason jar, twine and a toothpicks just makes me feel bad and b) I find awesome recipes and then promptly forget about them or when I do save them, I forget where I saved them or I print them, leave them on the table and the cat barfs on them.

    1. AND THE CAT BARFS ON THEM.

      I love you, martha waltz wewer.

  16. If I start following you all on Pinterest, which already consumes way too much of my time, as well as RFML, my kids are going to forget who I am. Love the squirrel board!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love Pinterest like fat kids love cake!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love that you have a board called 'Oooohhh Pretty'. I have a 'Princess Pretty' board that I had to create so there would be a place to put all the random gorgeous crap that I just couldn't leave unpinned! If your other contributors (i.e. Guru Louise or whoever)use Pinterest, you can set up a board that you can all contribute to, and it shows up on their wall and your wall. I'm sure you're not the only one who would like to pin stuff that Kate would hate. J/k, I was thinking more like the 'Whuck?' type pictures. :)

  19. I was "lucky" to be one of the first members of Pinterest... it all started as a great way to pin ideas for my daughter's nursery. Now I'm working on gaining 400 pounds because I've cooked so many different recipes I've come across. http://pinterest.com/aimeealexander/

  20. Yes, Pinterest is a wonderful time-suck. It is also a huge downer, for me, some times. I mean, seriously, is my house supposed to look like that -- all perfect and stuff? Am I supposed to cook like that every night? Do real people really do that stuff? And let's not even get into the crafty stuff. I can do some things, but not everything that's one there -- and I certainly won't be able to knit a cap and matching scarf anytime in this lifetime! *SIGH*

  21. oh, now i reallllly want skittles. <3

    ReplyDelete
  22. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOOOOOOVE Pinterest. And, yes, I'm an addict. I already followed you!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Pinterest is a major time-suck (kinda like the new Facebook) & I like your pin boards *snicker. But it makes me feel slightly inadequate as a wife/mother, lol. Whadda ya mean you don't pack your kid's lunch every day with organic, locally-grown foods, homemade peanut butter and baked-from-scratch cupcakes?!? And WHY doesn't your home look like the one in Pottery Barn?!?!?

    Just me? Okay, may bad :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. OMG! you all suck for posting your Pinterest boards!! I'm never going to get any work done!!

    Oh, Here's mine :D

  25. This is so timely, because I JUST wrote a blog post about Pinterest...or as I call it, "my Frenemy." {http://nasrene30before30.blogspot.com/2012/02/pinterest-my-frenemy.html}

    I definitely did not like it at first...but I'm coming around. Though I have not yet reach full blown addict level. Yet...

    ReplyDelete
  26. i'm going to follow y'all STAT on pinterest. love, love, love your board names. you should have one, though, that has hookers in it. ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I freakin' LOVE Pinterest. And now I love it even more because you guys just made it FUNNY. Thank you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh man, I love Pinterest! It's basically my new cookbook. And I've learned some of the craziest DIY tips from there! And best categories ever!

    Anyway, I saw this online and thought of you guys: a video pitching pregnancy as if it were a medicine commercial, complete with side effects. Hee! I laughed...and maybe peed a little. http://www.comediva.com/pregnancy

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm full on addicted to Pinterest and probably in need of an intervention now that I've taken to quilling...didn't even know that was a word before Pinterest so it's educational, too!

    ReplyDelete
  30. OMG, the vagina cupcakes...I can appreciate the amount of work that must have gone into them, but EWWWWW!!! Both horrifying and hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh how i love my Pinteresr. Its my 2 am I can't sleep and turning on the tv will make for a crabby husband.

    I can't wait for my son to get a bit older to do some of the crafty things. Oh yeah, I have my crayons for my crayon art.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Haha! Cap'n Coupon doesn't know what's good for him. Also, the pinsomnia* will decrease with use. {*pinsomnia is the need to pin all the things, late into the night}

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh my God. A board about squirrels. I LOVE squirrels. The hubby is out of town and I can't wait for the young one to go to bed so I can get out some wine and get on Pinterest and piss away the evening.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love Pinterest! Totally hooked on it...and I love it because I'm not crafty and it gives me all sorts of awesome ideas that I can actually do and make and then pretend I'm crafty and creative when what I really am is "good at following other people's instructions." I have often said I have no decor gene, so Pinterest is a wonderful way to waste my evenings and wind down!

    ReplyDelete
  35. My most favoritest time suck of all. I have an embarrassing number of pins AND boards. And now I'm following you - WOOT!

    ReplyDelete
  36. You have some funny stuff! LOL Love the "Nike" clogs. I think I'd buy a pair just to put them on a shelf. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOVE it!! I have a "Cake Batter" board...it's pretty awesome that Pinterest has helped support my cake batter habbit is so many ways!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I truly don't know what I did without pinterest

    ReplyDelete
  39. Awesome! "99 Problems But A Snitch Ain't One" was actually the name of my team at our local Harry Potter trivia tournament last year. :D

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have not allowed myself to join Pinterest. I waste enough time as it is.

    ReplyDelete
  41. You evil snitches, I almost peed myself at work... Oh it's a good thing Pinterest is a blocked site where I work or I would NEVER get anything done.
