Ah, Pinterest. There are few things that can monopolize so much of my free time and yet make me so ambitious about all the projects I could do with my free time.
Dream: Tonight I will decorate my refrigerator with washi tape!
Reality: Tonight I will decorate my face with a little makeup before I go to happy hour.
Dream: This weekend I will finally do that awesomely weird fabric ice-dyeing thing!
Reality: This weekend I will finally do laundry.
Dream: When my best friend comes over, we’ll make that thousand-layer crepe cake.
Reality: When my best friend comes over, we’ll make cupcakes. Maybe.

Someone once told me that Halloween is the most popular day for pizza delivery. Buck that trend and opt for this sweet Bats & Bones Brownie Pizza instead.
