My pinterest life is a fairy tale. I eat lots of goat cheese and quinoa and wear really awesome boots and scarves. I have the perfect handbag and hair for every occasion. I garden and label all of my herbs with wine corks. I spend my time organizing things I didn't even know could be organized. Everything has its perfect place in my tidy and labeled drawers and cabinets. I create cute holiday crafts and home-make my Christmas cards. I have endless cute activities planned for the kids and I am full of meaningful and insightful quotes.

It is almost comical how opposite my real life is from my Pinterest life. In the last 24 hours of my real life: I have eaten pimento cheese for 5 meals in a row, I wouldn't have changed out of my pajamas except for the fact I've been puked on a few times, finding a pair of scissors or AA batteries for one of the 5,000 toys on the floor of the playroom is damn near impossible due to all of the crap in my kitchen drawers, my ferns haven't been watered for weeks and are only surviving (barely) because the occasional wind and rain combined has blown some drops on them, last week's laundry is still stacked in the basket on the floor next to the continuously unmade bed, my purse is so old that I recently discovered a hole in the lining with 5 lost lip glosses hidden down there, and the last six weeks of mail is stacked on the coffee table waiting for my attention. Seriously - I just tried to count the things in this room that are out of place and I lost track because the count got so high.
I guess that is why Pinterest is so successful - it gives you an escape from chaos into an organized, healthy, and stylish world.
I completely love my chaos but after the girls go to bed I also love to drink wine and live in My so-called (pinterest) Life. Maybe some day I'll start working on some of those projects. Until someone comes up with that get off your ass app I think I'll just browse and pretend.
