Pinterest Challenge!

I have FINALLY decided to take on the pinterest challenge! I'm pretty excited about it? What is this challenge, you may be asking yourself? Well, I stole the idea from Lindsey Jarrett-- for a month she took on a new pin from pinterest. Whether it be a new meal, craft, anything. 

I'm probably starting this at the worst time ever so I'm going to do 31 pins as I have time. I'm going to shoot for a month but I'm not going to kill myself to get it finished. So I give myself from yesterday (i started on the 4th of June) until July 15th. That's a fair amount of time, right? I've already taken on a lot of projects/recipes I've seen on pinterest. I'll try to make a post sometime soon to tell you about those. 

OKAY... so here goes nothing.... I'll go ahead and tell you about my first project even though I don't have a picture of it. 

#1- Avocado Egg Salad-- which might kind of be a cheat because I made it for the first time a few weeks ago for Erin's bachelorette party. It was such a crowd favorite that I was craving it last night for dinner. So delish.. here's the recipe. I recommend trying it at home, tonight!!
