Pinterest. Otherwise known as The Highway to Hell.

"Crafts I'll do one day". lol
When I was in junior high, a couple of the popular girls told me how to put on make-up. See, I lived with my dad in junior high and even though he taught me how to shave my legs and mullet my hair, make-up was over the line of dad-knowledge. So the popular girls taught me. 

Popular Girl #1: "No, yeah, you go ahead and use this blush here"

Me: "Like, where, here on my cheek?"

Popular Girl #2: "No, all over. Go ahead and blend it all in, your forehead, yeah, all over"

Me: "Don't I look too red?"

Popular Girl #1: "No way, you look good."

I couldn't figure out why everyone was snickering at me on the bus the whole ride home. Couldn't have been the make-up 'cause I looked gooooood. 

So no, I wasn't popular in junior high or high school. 

And yeah, those popular girls ended up running a site called Pinterest. Probably. 

I was introduced to Pinterest about a year ago by my sister-in-law who assured me of all its usefulness. 

Sister-In-Law: "No yeah, you go ahead and use this website here"

I love Pinterest except that it introduces me to some plain awful ideas I may not have come up with left to my own devices. 

Here's a particularly saucy pin that lured me into trouble. 

Cloud Dough. Hahahah. 

Cloud dough. 

What was I thinking? 

You know what I was thinking? I was trying to keep up with those lying sacks of "homeschool moms" that somehow have time to Pinterest, you know what I'm saying?

So anyway, back to my nonsense. I was trying out this other pin I saw on Pinterest about putting silicone caulking on paper to make it sewable and these kids of mine were driving me nuts. So logically, I brought out Cloud Dough. 

If you don't want to be bothered clicking around to find out what cloud dough is, it's flour and baby oil. 

8 cups of flour. 

I know. I realize this now. 

But the pin promised my kids would be entertained by brain stimulating activities for hours.

So, I'm still not popular. 

Nor do I know how to put on make-up. If you've just now decided that you don't know how to put on make-up either ask Becky, my friends. Don't consult Pinterest. 

OH! Here's my Pinterest if you want a piece of my action. You know you do.

Oh my gosh I loved this, the pictures you used were hilarious!! I wasn't popular in high school either (shocker) and really only learned this whole make up thing in the past few years. We're just late bloomers.
Thank you for the mention! Or shout out? Whatever the kids call it, anyway <3
