Wow! Its been A LONG TIME since I’ve done a Pinterest Therapy. Its been kind of a traffic jam over here getting everything out since Fantasia Festival happened and then wedding planning and its been just sleep little, eat moderately and try to stay healthy. Which is just impossible and sounds ridiculous. BUT, things are starting to slow down now and for the most part, I’ve caught up. So far, I’ve gotten ahead by a little with scheduled posts going up instead of scrambling to get the next day’s posts up. Its only taken, what, four years to learn to be more organized here. Haha! Pathetic, yes.
Anyways, enough of this rambling. Point is: I’m stressed. Things are slowing down but I’m still stressed and worried and anxious. This wedding coming up in like a month is murdering me. This center of attention thing is scaring me to death! I really don’t like attention and making decisions and I’m doing both of these things right now simultaneously. I was going to do a wedding edition of this Pinterest business but I decided to not do that because that is not therapy. That’s more stress. AND, I’d kind of like the details of my wedding to be a little bit of a surprise so I can do some nice posts on it when it comes around. Sure, I shared some little snippets but the important parts are still secret 🙂 Hell, don’t feel bad. One of my girls are holding my wedding gown for me so my fiance doesn’t even know what it looks like 😉
Ok, you are here for some Pinterest therapy. Long weekend is here so let’s get this show on the road! If I had a day of nothing, I’d do this whole day of food just like this! I think I’m excited just thinking about it 😉
1) Breakfast: Classic French Toast
Believe it or not, I’ve never made French Toast. I’ve always wanted to because I can’t have any outside of my house so its been years since I’ve even tasted it. I always think about pancakes but never french toast. Weird, eh? Well, that’s on my list! 🙂
2) Lunch: Sloppy Joes
Its kind of funny. I always look at Sloppy Joes but I never make them. I remember having them once when I was really young at summer camp and it was so good. I can’t exactly remember the taste but I just remember it being the best burger in the world. Messy food is usually really good so I kind of think it’ll still be delish. One day though, I will make it soon.
3) Afternoon Refreshments: Sparkling Raspberry Lemonde
I know that summer is tapering off now. We’re stepping into autumn. Especially when I’m planning an autumn wedding. My life is pretty gone from summer. But the heat and the rain that just won’t pour is still around so it makes me thirsty all the time because I dehydrate just that much faster. I haven’t made lemonade this year (or anything else except infused water once) so you know, its never too late for lemonade and I’ve been having a huge love for raspberry flavored desserts so looks awesome! 🙂
4) Dinner: Coq Au Vin
Chicken is a huge part of our diet. We just love it at home. I’ve seen this around but I’ve never made Coq au Vin. I think I’ll give it a go one night.
5) Dinner Drinks: Honeycrisp Sangria
I absolutely love sangria any time of the year. I might change this to a white sangria since I’ve gained a weird intolerance to red wine. It makes me sweat profusely at night and makes me really bloated which white or rose wine doesn’t do. I don’t understand why but some have said maybe its a part of the fermentation process that does something that I don’t take well. Either way, no red wine so I’ll swap it to a white wine which is even more matched up to an autumn sangria which goes well with the apple thing. I think its good.
6) Dessert: Apple Pie Cupcakes
I’m WAY behind on baking. So so so behind. I bought a ton of ingredients in hope to bake and I just haven’t found time to do it. Between getting myself, the house and the planning for the wedding, I barely have time to eat normal so its a challenge to get that. Baking just hasn’t gone anywhere. But I did find an easier recipe for the Baking Through Disney project for Snow White so I might give that a go before I attempt to make these 😉 How does that sound?
This is Labor Day weekend so I’m going to wrap up that Snow White and officially kick off the next one. which I think is Pinocchio. But on the timeline of Baking with Disney. I might give the next item a solid thought. So let’s check the last thing on this therapy session 😉
7) More Drinks: Disney Cocktails
If you click the image, it links to the page with a lot of other Disney movies and drinks they put together. I chose Snow White because I’m trying to keep reminding myself that I have one more part to do to move on to the next thing. But this is so cute. I don’t know how to mix alcohol but I’d give these ones a try like I’d only be able to do Fair Maiden. Although I might have just drank all the pineapple juice. Something fun to try for the weekend.
That’s it for this Pinterest Therapy. maybe I’ll start doing it in this format. Although these things are all pretty random. After some relaxation here, I’m off to another crazy day of running around and testing the limits of how efficient I can be 😉
Happy Saturday, my lovelies! 🙂
Have a great weekend and I’ll be back on Monday!
