Whew! Well, I certainly meant to do more than just one or two posts this week, but I got sick – again! “Seriously?” you ask? I swear, I couldn’t make this up!
So, with the wedding of a good friend coming up tomorrow, and…*gasp*…a first date coming up on Sunday (If I end up with any first date disaster stories, I promise to share them :P), I’ve been laying kind of low with my pjs and Project Runway marathon (season 8!).
I’ve also been freaking out, because I realized I’ve never actually been on a first date before. Like I’ve said, my town is small – and I’ve never dated anyone I didn’t already know from high school. Every relationship I’ve ever been in started out as a friendship first. Eventually we just started…going out. It was an easy transition. Our first dates were homework on the couch and dinner with each other’s families.
This is a whole new ball game! I have no idea what I’m doing! Panic!
To distract myself, I’ve turned to my favorite addiction…Pinterest. Oh Pinterest…I’d forgotten how much I absolutely love to waste my time scrolling through pictures of DIY beauty products and ridiculously amazing hair-dos and manicures that I will never have the talent to achieve on my own.
Plus the quotes! I know there are a lot of you fellow quote lovers out there – LouAnn, Lori, and Diana, to name a few – and let me tell you, Pinterest is a treasure trove of them! Seriously, I could spend an entire day there, being inspired.
Of course, eventually you have to unglue yourself from the computer and get out there and do something with that inspiration…But right now I’m sick, dangit!
Anyhoo, if you have a Pinterest account, feel free to follow me here: Andrea Kelly on Pinterest. And if you don’t have a Pinterest account – what’s taking you so long? Hours of entertainment, distraction and procrastination await!
Do you have any tips for a 25-year-old girl who’s never been on a first date before? What are your thoughts on Pinterest?
