I have gotten in the habit of posting all of the awesome recipes I have taken from Pinterest. Too bad lots of those were deleted by accident (sent into cyberspace neverland) when I was trying to label them as "recipes". So, this post is about all of my other Pinterest successes and favorite picks. And I will continue posting yummy recipes as I try them out.

For the Kids
Tooth Fairy Letter
I am anxiously waiting for Garrison to lose his first tooth that has been loose FOREVER! I can't wait to try this one out. You, I mean the tooth fairy, just write a letter to them in very small handwriting on very small paper. I don't think I will make it as far as the small envelope.
I See Me
I actually heard about them through Groupon. This is an amazing website where you can personalize lots of stuff for kiddos. I got the boys both placemats with their names and we also got Ethan a great book called, "God Loves Me". Check them out here!
I haven't done this yet but this is a good reminder that I want to start it. Have your kids write their prayers on popsicle sticks and put them in a prayer pot. A great way to get your kids involved in prayer - love this idea!
Phone Number Bracelet
I saw this one today and I couldn't think of a better idea. It's a DIY (do it yourself) phone number bracelet to put on your kids when you travel or go to a crowded place like the fair or a sports event. Great idea!
I have posted about past articles but these two are some newer ones I have come across.
Seven Motherhood Ideas I Love
This is an article full of great ideas of things to do with your kids when they are young. There are only seven of them so it isn't overwhelming.
7 Quirky Discipline Rules that Work
I got some great new tips from this article. A must read!
Positive Body Image
I don't even have a girl and I absolutely love this. Boys need good body image too but let's be honest - too many girls these days struggle with this. Let's end the cycle for our daughters.
Fashion and Beauty
Hair Tricks - the twisted bangs was definitely my fav but she has other tips on her blog.
I am not big on Valentine's Day but I think this is a great idea to do for your kids. I will definitely be doing this for Garrison this year. Starting February 1st you put a heart on their door with something you love about them.
I might do these for Garrett and give him one each day with his lunch the week of Valentine's Day. I might switch it up and put reasons why I love him though. Of course mine probably won't turn out this pretty.
Tips and Tricks
This is by far the one I am most excited about. Have you ever left the towels in the washer too long and they have a mildew smell? All you have to do is rewash them in hot water with 1 cup of vinegar. Some pins out there also tell you to add baking soda and other stuff but all you need is the vinegar.
Organizing scarves - all you need is a hanger and shower rings!
24 ways to reuse baby containers - I really need to put some of these ideas to use!
That is a very small sample of some of the great ideas you can find on Pinterest. This was a good reminder for me that I need to spend more time implementing these ideas than pinning them.
