One of my resolutions for 2014 was to add a weekly feature of sorts to My Sequined Life, in addition to recipes or projects. Don’t get me wrong – I so enjoy writing about those things, but I’m fairly certain it would take quite awhile for whoever regularly reads to get to “know me” by anecdotes sprinkled here and there throughout the site alone. (And if you are a regular reader, well then holy smokes, THANK YOU!).
So, “Life on Wednesdays” it is, a weekly, all-purpose post for a little glimpse of what’s happening outside my blog. Maybe this’ll be about what’s happening in my life, maybe it’ll be some links to other blogs I can’t get enough of, and maybe when all else fails it’ll be a cute picture of my dog. What I can assure you is that it won’t be me spilling my guts into a virtual diary. I’d like to leave the hum-drum of my work life at the office, and while I may personally get jazzed about a sale on pickles at the supermarket, I know that you really couldn’t care less. Capiche?
(First sequined factoid – I LOVED Full House when I was little.)
I’m a firm believer that if you want to learn about someone, then check out their Pinterest. It’s been a few months but it just occurred to me to link my own Pinterest here with the button the right. Duh.
Not to get all mushy gushy about a website, but I just KNEW I’d love Pinterest ever since I first heard about it. You can make LISTS and ORGANIZE with PICTURES. Back then you needed to be on a wait list (which I obviously joined immediately) and was doing the happy dance when I “got in”, but there was one
tiny big issue. I had just started studying for the CPA Exam. All four parts. Groan.
Knowing what my studying might be in danger of should I crack open Pandora’s box (Pindora’s box?), I held onto that invite in a super safe corner of my Gmail for EIGHT MONTHS until my exams were over and done with, for good. And I mean business about these things. Hot off taking the last one, I walked in the door, signed up, cracked open a bottle of wine, got comfy on the couch, and proceeded not to move for five hours while I pinned my brains out. If that doesn’t tell you a little bit about me, then I don’t know what will.
Some other things you may surmise about me from perusing my Pinterest:
1. I seem to have an obsession with subtley-ombré hair, glitter nail art, and french bulldogs. Presently, my hair is one shade of dark brown (though I have a hair appointment on Friday…), my nails are a chipped oxblood (but I would jump with joy if I could actually do this awesome gold/glitter job myself), and I have an aging Wheaten Terrier who keeps a eye out for any dropped snacks.
3. I scroll through my quote board when I need a boost. Seeing Donna pop up never ceases to make me smile. Love Parks and Rec! If I ever reach a point on Netflix where there are no more new episodes of New Girl, Mad Men, Parks and Rec, The League, or White Collar, I’ll feel a little bit lost.
But then again I can always pour myself a glass of wine, put on my cheetah-print Snuggie, and pin-binge. That always works. 🙂
