1/2 a Year In Review

I started Pinterest Told Me To in August of this year (just 5 short months ago) at the urging of some of my friends, and I'm so glad that they talked me into it!
It's been WAY more fun than I ever thought it would be!
I think it's so great that people from my past (childhood friends, high school friends, and college friends) are reading, as well as people in my life today.
Everybody has been so kind and encouraging, and that was such a sweet surprise.
I was quite nervous to start this venture, wondering what everybody would think.
How would people take me putting myself out there?
Well, I shouldn't have worried.
My friends are the best!
I have also really enjoyed "meeting" new people and actually becoming friends with some of you!
You guys have really blown me away with your kindness also.  I've received so many sweet sweet comments and e-mails from you that have absolutely made all of the hard work worth it.
The blog has also grown much faster than I thought possible..
and would like to thank all of YOU for that.
  You guys are the reason it is "catching on"! 
(If the number of exclamation points in the above paragraph is any indication of my happiness,
then there should be no doubt that I am SUPER happy!)

Since the blog hasn't been around for an entire year, I thought I would do a 1/2 year in review post,
highlighting 1 post from each month since August.

While writing this year in review post, I stumbled upon THESE red patent flats (and even updated the old post to include them).
You're welcome.

Here are boots similar to mine.  I LOVE how the front panel is higher than the back panel.  It is so flattering for some reason.

I Stand Corrected.

I can't wait to see what 2013 holds for my future outfits.
I mean, after all....I wore black with brown this year after Pinterest told me to...
what will I do next year?
Will Pinterest tell me to wear a mumu with leggings and ankle boots?  
I hope not.
But if Pinterest tells me to, I might give it a whirl.  ;)
I HAVE established time and time again that she knows her stuff.  
Or like in the pic below.....maybe Pinterest will tell me to wear Daisy Dukes and a bustier.
(When I saw this yesterday, it already had 6 repins.)
I mean, seriously...who is pinning this picture?
And let's forget about the outfits for a minute and just concentrate on the girl's hair.
crop tops and high shorts
But if you want me to be honest for just a second...if I looked like this...I just might rock this outfit.
To the the grocery my kid's school.
Sure, people would talk....but hey...I wouldn't care.
I would justify their cruel words by just rationalizing that they were jealous of my hot body.

a huge THANK YOU to all of you for reading!
Hope you will stay along for the ride to see what Pinterest will tell me to do next!
See you next year!

    And my brother, who is seriously 'fashion challenged' (he is a guy after all) calls those super short high-waisted denim shorts 'denim diapers'. Cracks me up every time. Of course when you're that young and have a great body you can get away with wearing 'denim diapers'. ;)


I would of course love to hear what you think! As long as it is super sweet.....and maybe a little sassy. Sheaffer :)
