My week in Instagram

I love a good challenge, whether it’s Blogtoberfest, NaBloPoMo, or 12 x 2012, they are all great opportunities to cross off some bucket list stuff. Ok, so maybe not that challenging, but they do get me out of my comfort zone (hello blogging everyday!) and thinking outside of the box. This is why I decided to challenge myself to Fat Mum Slim’s March Photo a Day.

Here’s my roundup of the first 9 days of the challenge. Next Monday, I’ll post the next 9, and so on.

If you just can’t wait til next week, you can follow my pictures here! Are you on Instagram? My screen name is sydthewyd, hope to see you soon!

The Pinterest Challenge

I love Pinterest. Like most people who have succumbed to it’s charms, I can literally spend hours browsing through cool things that people have found via the world wide web. I have a “Make This” board which has all the crafty/sewing-related things that I want to make. Or use as inspiration to make. There is also an “Eat This” board, which, you guessed it, I want to eat. Actually, make and then eat.

I pin all these things with the best of intentions.. I really do plan on making these things. The problem is, I never do! That where the Lovebumps Pinterest Challenge comes in! Lovebumps blog, along with other bloggers aptly called the PinAddicts, has decided to challenge bloggers around the world to actually make things from their boards and then post it on the first Monday of the month. Since that is only 4 days away, I thought I would make something edible. It’s Gavin’s birthday tomorrow as well, so if I make him something off my board that’s two birds with one pin-shaped stone!

Since I have been fairly obsessed with the no-knead bread that hit the web about two years ago, I am going with bread. Monkey bread. Garlic Parmesan Monkey Bread to be specific. And this is the very specific Garlic Parmesan Monkey Bread:

Mmmm… It’s from The Pastry Affair and damn.. I could eat that whole thing myself. Right now.

So come on! Join in!
