Pinterest Favorites

If I’m on my computer, my husband automatically assumes I’m browsing Pinterest {and the majority of time he’s right}.  If I’m playing on my phone, he automatically assumes I’m Instagramming {and again, he’s usually correct}.

Instagramming :: not technically in the dictionary…but it should be.
{verb} creating and sharing a photo or video via the social networking app Instragram | { adj.} highly addictive

I tell him to not complain as I promise him that Pinterest makes me a better cook, mom, and designer. He doesn’t buy it completely, but these days many of our meals are straight from Pinterest.  My latest hairstyle – got it from Pinterest.  Some of Preston’s favorite activities…you know it, Pinterest.

Below are some of our favorite tried and true recipes that I found thanks to Pinterest.

The tassel garland and the tissue paper mobile I made for my daughter’s nursery, totally Pinterest inspired.  You can see more of the nursery here, and the numbers below will take you to the actual tutorials.

This pin pictured below {specifically the media console} served as the inspiration for the console that was built for our living room.


Super thankful to find pins that help me be a more creative mom.  My son would be beyond bored without my Pinterest addiction, y’all. And as mentioned earlier, below is the pin that I took to my hairstylist back in July and that prompted the new look with bangs.

This pin even served as the inspiration for my son’s adorable Halloween costume last year.  Check Preston out below…

Finally, I love all the quotes folks share and pin on Pinterest.  These are just two of my favorites.

Tiffanie, originally from East Texas, has called Houston home for over 10 years now. She and her husband met during undergraduate studies at Stephen F. Austin State University. They have one son, Preston {Jan 2011}, who was born with a very rare congenital heart condition and underwent a very successful open heart surgery at Houston's own Texas Children's Hospital when he was just two days old. In October 2013, Tiffanie welcomed a daughter, Hadley, into this world. She adores seeing life and this great city through the eyes of her children. She is a practicing physician assistant, passionate about Endocrinology and diabetes. Committed to connecting moms and families to all the fabulousness of this great city, Tiffanie started serving as our Sponsorship Coordinator in January 2014. Her days are now filled to the brim with taking care of her family, her patients, fielding sales calls, and scheduling sponsored posts. Her favorite pasttimes include drinking a full-bodied glass of red, retail therapy, a nice long run, and being near a beach - water soothes her.


  1. Tiffany I love this post and I cannot wait to use some of your ideas! By the way I am equally obsessed with Pinterest. My husband says I need an intervention!

  2. Pinterest is my GO TO for dinner ideas. I honestly think 90% of the meals I make come right off my recipe board! Thanks for sharing your faves too!!
