This one wins for making me think the most this week and actually inspiring me to make a big change.
Ever since Leyna was born, excuses were pretty much all I could come up with when it came to getting things done for my party blog Party Like A Kid. I wanted to take a few months off, I was too busy with the house reno, I was too busy with this blog redesign… I just never made it a priority. Because? It began to feel like a chore. And when faced with the choice between chores and children, children win 90% of the time. That’s probably why this house is only clean 3 days out of every month.
So, I consulted with my contributors, and they all seemed to feel the same way. It was just too big for all of us, too much at this time in our lives. None of us could find a way to work it in because it just wasn’t that important right now.
It’s too fantastic of a place and there are too many amazing party submissions sitting in my inbox to just euthanize it; so it’s up for adoption. I’m in talks with a prospective new owner right now. She and I are making sure she has the time to give it the attention it deserves. Once the adoption is complete, I’ll be sure to let you all know so you can watch it grow and bloom into something great.
I’d been thinking of letting it go for a while, but when I read that pin, I solidified my decision.
See? Not only can Pinterest show you all the crafty things you can do with
stolen free paint chips, or introduce you to any crazy turducken-esque desert creation (it’s a cookie, swallowed by a pie, enveloped in cake batter, topped with peeps!), but it can also help you make semi-major life decisions.
Now, as a bonus pin, here’s a yummy lime and coconut concoction I am SO making this weekend.
The only thing I’m debating is splurging for the coconut rum, or going with the non-acoholic version so I can share with Kendall. I know, I know… many of you are thinking this is a no-brainer. When in doubt, always go for the rum, right? But, the last time I drank coconut rum I’m pretty sure was spring break in college when I paired Parrot Bay with bloody mary mix because, well, college kids will drink anything that gets them drunk and my body was, apparently, craving veggies. Sooo… kind of a hard memory to shake.
Although, I do still love the lime in the coconut flavor combo. Just had a coconut/key lime frozen yogurt creation last night from Yogurtland and it was a pretty genius mix, if I do say so myself.
What’s your favorite pin of the week?
If you’re not on Pinterest, but would like to be and need an invite, you can leave your email address below and I’ll do my best to send you one as soon as I can, or hopefully some more kind readers will come back and invite you for me. (You guys have been so helpful with that!) I apologize if you’re following me and I’m not yet following you back. Not trying to be a pin snob. It’s just really hard to see who my new follows are with the way they have it set up now.
