      I have been on the pinterest waiting list for a couple of months! The sample boards look so cool, I can't wait to see more. The more popular it gets, the longer the wait, I guess!

      I too was not that interested in pinterest, I used delicious to keep track of ideas, DIY, recipes and all my other bookmarks but since they did not provide a picture, I also had a file of pictures in my flickr acocunt so that I could see the pictures but would forget where I found the pic. When I started using pinterest and saw that I could save all my files there and also follow people and boards, I quickly became addicted to it! I still use delicious as my bookmakring tools because it allows me to "tag" the site but pinterest is the site I know use for DIY, home inspiration & recipes. Going to chck out your pinterest now :-)

      Could you send me some "invite" love? I've checked it out a couple of times, and I can see how it would be addictive. :) Now, I can start getting rid of my collection of torn out magazine pages. :)

      After hearing so much about pinterest and your invite to check out HDS boards, I find it fascinating! I've got soooo many papers and bookmarks of food, books, arts&crafts, and various wish lists for parts of my home, this would be ideal for me to put it all in one place rather than the somewhat haphazard way I have now. How does one get an invite to start??

      I would love to join pinterest!!

      One of our funniest family moments was about two years ago. My then 5th grade son needed something from his bookbag for a report at school, so he walked over to the coat closet while the rest of his class watched. Much to his dismay, he ended up reaching in and pulling out a used diaper (thankfully just wet!) that his 18 month old sister had deposited in his backpack instead of the trash. His teacher said the look on his face was priceless!! Needless to say, he checked his bookbag from then on for extra baggage!!

      Oh please invite me.
      One I can think of is My daughter had just gotten a Baby Alive doll and was so excited to feed and change it, all was going well until the changing part and she got her all ready and took off the diaper just in time to have her doll pee all over her. She was so suprised by it and all I could do was laugh, I laughed so hard I was crying. I so wish I had a video of it.

      Fun post and happy to discover your blog. I recently started using Pinterest... I only wish I had found it sooner (or maybe it's okay that I didn't, since yeah - it's kind of addicting, but in a good way). You can find me at

      I've requested an invite several times, the first being months and months ago. I've coveted an account for so long. Is there a limit to invites or something?

      Our most recent funniest moment was when my 6 year old walked into our room while we were watching Gene Simmons Family Jewels. All of a sudden there was a very skimpy dressed girl on screen. I hurried and covered his eyes. He just looked at me and said, "it's ok mom, she was pixelated!"
      Hopefully that was good enough for an invite. If not , I've got plenty more ;D

      A funny memory. Shortly after a major rain hit our area my husband and I were walking our dog and our toddler (who idolized our dog). We were chatting with a man who was pumping out his basement into the street and creating quite a puddle. Our dog decided she was thirsty and started lapping up the water. before we could stop him our two year old got down on his hands and knees and started drinking too. I was horrified and immediately intervened. My husband, on the other hand, just looked at the man, smiles and declared "We are so proud of him'
