How fun would something like that be for a shower?? They are so pretty. Biggrin I thought I would post this here since it seems like there are always a few of you trying to plan a shower or a party.

I was just on your food board. Smile I'm hungry.

ETA: SO HUNGRY. But I'm so tired! Could someone bring me some homemade mac and cheese? Pretty please?

Can a pregnant woman eat this? Does the alcohol cook out? If only I had the energy to cook this right now. It sounds so delicious.

You're so funny! You realize that is just spaghetti, right? Wink Pinterest has some serious food porn! I like to pin it, but I will never ever attempt to make any of it. My jeans don't button, just looking at those pictures!

While alcohol can never "cook out" all the way, the alcohol content does lessen the more it's cooked. Honestly, I'd have no qualms about eating that while pregnant and did eat pasta with alcoholic sauces (love me some vodka sauce and wine sauce with pasta!). It's not like you're taking a shot of 151, ya know? Wink

Pinterest has given me quite a few food ideas that's I've made (and posted on my blog).

ROFL Ok, I was really hungry and everything was looking so delicious. Biggrin Flowers have briefly taken a backseat.

That vodka sauce looked so good. I've never made it myself but I may have to try it. I tend to err on the side of caution but maybe I could eat a little?

Pinterest could be responsible for some serious pounds. Amber said it. It's food porn!

It's really a place to orginaze pictures and ideas. It's been really helpful for party planning for me, and food and crafts for Kayla. Wink

WHen you pin a picture, it has a link back to the original source. So food porn will take you to the recipe, fabric flowers will take you to the tutourial on how to make them. Outfit pictures will take you to where to buy them. You can also create pins from any pictures you find online that you like. It's fun and addictive!

Yum!

Speaking of flowers, Kayla, those ones that you made that you were posting about on the Scrapbooking board, are so easy and addicting to make!! I love those ones the best! (where you take the strip and cut slits and then roll it)
