10 Pins

The Austin Family Diary

A brand new set of Tuesday Topics is back!
(A day late. Thanks, lap top.)

Let me tell you, I love this link up. I think I may have mentioned it a time or two. But I love this link up. I just mentioned it again. So there.
But seriously guys, I love this link up because it's kind of challenging and it really feels like getting to know other bloggers who participate. It's actually a lot of fun to visit the bloggers on the link up list and see what they answered, if you answered the same thing, if they maybe mentioned something you never thought of, you get the idea!
So jump on in!

This Tuesday's topic is 10 Pins.
And to that I say...JUST TEN?!?!

I am a Pinterest junkie, if you hadn't noticed. I mean, I have a page on this blog solely dedicated to Pinterest recipes and projects. I speak Pinterest. I find it Pinteresting. I'm a Pinster. It's a language. Learn it.

I've already reenacted some of my favorite recipes on the blog with my Slutty Brownies, Bakery Blueberry Muffins, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles. So I won't list them again. Just know they're awesome.

Funny Shiz

I could never choose just one from my funny file. I really prefer memes with obscenities and swear words but this pin pertains exclusively to Pinterest craftiness and it makes me laugh so I thought it was appropriate.


S'more Kits

I did my own version of this for Christmas one year complete with a Sterno and skewers. It was inexpensive and everyone liked it!



I love tattoos and I can't choose just one pin. I'm choosing the whole board I've named "Ink."

Best. Love Story. Ever.


Hebrews 6:18

I loved this so much I printed out the picture in mini size and gave it out with anchor bracelets at an annual retreat I attend with some very special Mommas.


30 Questions to Ask Your Spouse on a Road Trip

We actually did this and it was pretty awesome. It also killed about an hour and a half out of an eight hour road trip.


Neiman Marcus Brownies (Blondies)

I've made a ton of Pinterest desserts. Behold...my favorite Pinterest dessert ever. You're welcome.



Ramen Stir Fry

I love Ramen and I'm not sorry about it. I think this recipe using Ramen is the shizzle. And it's from my friend Rachelle over at Mommy I'm Hungry! We've had it several times, it's always a hit, and it's always completely gone. No left overs.


Baked Cauliflower Poppers

This changed my life. Maybe I'm being dramatic (Never!). But I just didn't know cauliflower before this recipe. I didn't buy it. It wasn't really in my cooking vocabulary. But I know the magic that is cauliflower and my whole family loves this recipe.

Everything from Polyvore (or any other outfit making program)

They teach me how to dress.


Just so you know what I'm about...
