Minimizing the tabs

I don't know if any of you are like me, but as soon as I open up my computer and start browsing the web, before I know it, I have 50+ tabs open of all things I love, want to try, need to make, must own, and the list goes on and on.

I rarely shut down my computer, because hello, I need my tabs open. I've been mocked for how many tabs I have open at once. But I embrace what can be found online and thought nothing of it.

But then Pintrest came along, and saved me from the loss of great ideas, websites I admired, and images I couldn't get enough of, all because I closed a tab too soon. It's like all of internets goodness in one place. Minimal tabs needed. Amazing!

And it gets even better knowing that, not only can I share my internet finds, inspirations, dreams, etc. with others, they can share their goodness with me, too. That deserves another, amazing!

I know this whole Pintrest thing isn't new to most of you, but I only joined a few weeks ago, and I think I just found the next best thing next to cheese curds.

A few of my boards:


Do any of you use Pintrest? If not, you really should. And then you should share your inspirational finds with me. I'm really good at being inspired by others. 

Enjoy your Memorial Weekend. We're headed to San Antonio for ours, and we might just sneak in a little beach time, too, even if it means another two hours drive. That close to the beach, how do you not go? 

I'm not too sure when I found a love for escaping to Texas, but alas, Texas excites me these days. 

And I lied, the love instantly sprung the moment I moved to Oklahoma!

San Antonio sounds GREAT!!! That's supposedly the third most romantic city in the country after San Francisco and New Orleans. (After the hurricane I don't know if New Orleans is still up there.) Have fun and drive safely!

I love San Antonio too-river walk, mariachi bands, mexican food....ahhhh...
I'll give Pintrest a try. You should go into advertising. You're good at PR!

ooh! I'm glad I read this post - I totally relate to the 'million tabs open at a time' thing. Jeff always bugs me about it. So I will definitely check this out. Thanks Amy!

p.s. - I just noticed the yellow/white anthropologie dress over there! I had that open in one of my tabs for a couple weeks, too. Maybe we could both get it and wear it the same week to church... or better yet! We could go in on it together and share it since I don't want to spend the money right now... :)
