Do You Pin?

So, I'm kind of obsessed with Pinterest.

Yes, I too have fallen victim to the online bulletin board that has quite possibly become an even bigger timesuck than Facebook.

I love Pinterest for a lot of reasons, however.  First off, it gives me a great way to file away websites that I come across and think, "Ooh, I should check this out!" but then I normally forget.  But Pinterest makes it so easy for me to think, "Oh, right!"  On my online pinboard I have a bunch of links to parenting websites, recipes to try, and fun craft ideas to do with Bug and Cat.

It's also a good way for me to showcase my obsessions:  I have boards dedicated to dresses, desserts, books, and my ideas for my impending 30th birthday (which I am insisting must be themed after The Hunger Games).

But something that I really love about the website is it gives me insights into my friends.  Via Pinterest, I have learned that some of them dream about making it big on Etsy; some of them plan to homeschool their kids (and heck, I might enlist them to teach mine, because some of the ideas and activities they have on their boards are AWESOME); and some of them have a whole catalog of fabulous places and spaces that they want to travel to.

Plus, I'm using this website to shamelessly steal some of their decorating ideas:)
