Why oh why

This horror story dates back to when my mother ruined me by showing me Pinterest. I remember needing something to do in my spare time one boring summer and I stumbled upon my mom’s Pinterest page.

"Oh the wonder" I thought. Little did I know that my mind was about to be taken into this world that I should not have found in the first place. I thought things got bad when I discovered YouTube. Oh no, this was much much worse.

I created my own account and started scrolling through page after page of craft and gift ideas and I was consumed. I spent a nice little sum of money at Hobby Lobby for my crafting needs.

My poor wallet was probably screaming at me to stop. What am I saying? It is still telling me to stop going to craft stores. Yet it did not stop there. Then I discovered…..baking.

I don’t know what made me start looking at food but oh my goodness the possibilities. Now it was time to spend my money on a very important commodity. Food.

My mom loves that I have started cooking and baking because she is usually the first person I have try my interesting creations. Do I always follow the recipes I find? No, but it is always a good starting point. Who needs cookbooks when I have Pinterest?

Pinterest has led me down some very dark roads and bunny trails that never seem to end. Pinterest is my guide to unknown possibilities and horrors. The horror happens when I look at my bank account after a shopping trip that Pinterest sent me on.

The wonders are endless.
