Pinning from your iPhone

Have you ever had the dilemma of browsing on your iPhone and finding something you love, but had no way to Pin it to your Pinterest boards from your phone? Well, problem solved!!

Follow these simple instruction to pin to your hearts content (from your phone).

1. Modify an existing bookmark on your iPhone. Select any old bookmark, and click Edit. Change the name of the bookmark to Pinterest or somethjng else so you know this is where to pin.

2. Copy/paste the following into the URL window:

javascript:void((function(){var%20e=document.createElement('script'); e.setAttribute('type','text/javascript'); e.setAttribute('charset','UTF-8'); e.setAttribute('src',''+Math.random()*99999999);document.body.appendChild(e)})());

3. Click Done and Done.

4..When you come across an image that you'd like to pin click Bookmarks at the bottom of the window (it looks like an open book).

5. Click on the Pinterest bookmark you created. This will pull all of the photos into a grid for you to choose from. Select the image you want to pin and Pinterest will open, allowing you to choose a category and give a caption to your Pin.

Ta-da!! iPhone magic, baby!!

I would like to thank for teaching me this awesome trick!! Now, I will never have the inability to pin again!!

Move In Day

The day finally came! After finding the house of our dreams in April, signing a contract in May, and living with family, in hotels, and with friends throughout June, we finally close on our new house today! This makes me one of the happiest and most blessed girls on the planet right now!

It's all ours!!!

I am having a difficult time right now trying to be patient.  I know that good things will come to those who wait, but why does waiting have to be so stinkin' hard?  So during a little alone time this morning, many prayers, and the thought of patience on my mind I am giving you just a little thought for the day:

This really hit home with me.  Maybe it will you, too.  I know I'm not the only one out there waiting on something (some of you are even waiting on a house like I am), so I hope that this helps you to remember to exercise your faith and bear the hardship for the time being...endure, friends (and speaking to myself here too) it will be worth it in the end.

What's on my Mind

By this time during the summer, I start to feel the downhill slide (you know...back to school).  My pinterest boards would be filling up with school related pins, internet searches would consist of new lessons and behavior mod. plans, and I would be scouring the office supply for the latest and greatest in markers, pens, and organizing supplies; this summer is different.

Here is our finished house!
This summer though, my brain has been consumed by the thoughts of moving and decorating.  I am so anxious to be in the house!  We have had a few setbacks, nothing serious, just paperwork business, nevertheless we are ready to be in the house.  We are hoping to close this week.

So instead of some neat lesson plan, cute bulletin board, or activities for kids.  You get to see some of my Pinspirations for the new house...hope you enjoy!

Here are my TOP 5 + 1 (from the hubby) :)  (PS...I taught him how to use Pinterest and now he is hooked!  Just don't tell him I said so!)

For the breakfast area:
Pub Table & 4 24" Barstools

For the stairway:
Picture frames on staircase wall

For the playroom:
great playroom space

For Chloe's room:
CC room

Also, Chloe's room:
paint the daybed ????

And one of my husband's additions:
EXPEDIT TV storage unit IKEA The shelves can be placed to the left or right. Choose the placement that suits you best.

If you want to see more of my Pins go here.  This is not our first home, but it is definitely the home we have dreamed of for many years.  We are beyond blessed to be able to have a house to make into a beautiful home.  Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated as we get ready to settle into our new home!
