Very "Pinteresting"...

Hi! I seem to find myself browsing through pictures every Sunday morning, when I get to stay home alone with my little ones. Looking through last few folders, I realized that some of the photos were affected by Pinterest. Mostly in a good way, like this one:

We were having so much fun on the fourth of July, that I didn't even take a single photo that day... Doesn't sound like me, I know. But seeing a few patriotic photos on Pinterest, I decided to photograph our kids on July fifth. No one should know it wasn't the fourth, right? And if I didn't write about it here, you would've not known either. 

I asked all of the kids to wear red, white and blue for a photoshoot. Well,... they did, but in their own interpretation. You should have seen their outfits... They reminded me of a Lady Gaga style. Pretty scary. At least they seemed to have so much fun dressing up. No, I'm not going to post that photo here. I told them, I don't want to scare my precious visitors away.

So, last week Suzanna made a pull apart bread (recipe found on Pinterest) which smelled so good that we started pulling it apart before even taking a photo of it:

We are definitely making it again! It was SO good - with garlic, Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese. Alena found this tasty salad, that was a perfect addition to our dinner:

Loved dried cranberries in it! And for me - anything with avocado sounds good, so that was a very pleasing combination. I guess we are making that for the next time someone comes over. But if you want to bring something like this -

 - you are always invited! That was my sister's work of art. It. Was. So. Good. Crunchy edges, chewy center, caramel drizzle on top and fresh raspberries...

So, going back to other pictures I found... These looked very Pinteresting:

I let my kids join the Pinterest site and they have a lot of hairstyle ideas pinned there. It seems like it comes useful sometimes. Aaand, looking at the following combination of photos, you can guess what else they have been pinning a lot. A lot, a lot. 

They thought it was fun to try on all if those (there were more) shoes and take pictures of each other at the store... I guess Pinterest can have both positive and not so positive affects on people. At least, there are some big plans for more cooking. They love to try new recipes, and I love when someone else takes turn creating in the kitchen.

Oh, and before I go, I need to share one more picture... It's also features a hair style. It is a very unique one though - even Pinterest doesn't have one like this...

It was specially designed with the help of trampoline and photographed by older sister. Don't you think that the facial expression of this little model goes well with her hair style? I think it does. 

I'm up for the challenge - a post every day this week! Let's see if we can do that...

I hope you are having a wonderful day and I'll see you tomorrow!

  1. HA HA HA HA!!!! That's not the way i wanted to start my comment, but the last picture, of Lianochka is just SO FUNNY!!!! I Love it!!!!!:-) and yes, you r right, that facial expansion tells all! ;) make me think of the time when she was playing around, telling everyone how pretty and curly her hair was, but then i took a picture of it... lets just say when she was sleeping and the hair was NOT brush-able anymore and scary, and when she looked at it her face SAID it ALL... :-( she said "what's back there?" it was so cute!!!
    But anyway, before i go on and on and it will look like a "blog" and not a comment i should just say... very nice pictures!!! Love the idea of dressing red, white and blue! And love pinterest too :-)and yes, i can see they love shoes and hair ideas... i follow them :-D and those brownies... glad you liked them :) i will make them again if i get invited to that pull apart bread and that yummy looking salad! :-D

  2. He-he... Now you made me laugh! You reminded me of a story I have already forgotten... "I don't need to write that down, I'll remember that - is the biggest lie you can tell yourself" - Pinterest again. Now I need to make a page about her "curly" hair.

    p.s. you don't need an invitation if you have brownies or any relatives of theirs :))
