My Result:

Next Time I Will:† Not have huge knockers that suffocated my husband, or a very short family with little height variations between us.

What I Did: I loved this picture and wanted to try with my 2 month old. I first tried her with just a pamper and then put the romper on because I thought she hated it because she was cold. My husband said she hated it because she was placed inside of food. I will modify pumpkin and try again.

 

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Try a bigger pumpkin.

What I Did: We had some friends over for a 4th of July party, and I thought it would be AWESOME to attempt to write out USA with sparklers like I had seen so beautifully done on Pinterest. To say it was a fail would be an understatement. U2O? Wtf.

Blog Post Detailing The Experience: http://sarah-travelinglight.blogspot.com/2013/07/proud-to-be-from-u2o.html

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  I would need to get all my friends on board with writing the letters backwards. Ha! I also would need to try again when it’s not so light. It sort of lost the appeal when you can see my blurry friends.

What I Did: I saw this pin under the heading of “Cute Photo Ideas,” and I thought that it would be just perfect since we have four kids, as well. I enlisted the help of the kids to help me recreate this adorable pin, and you can see our disastrous result. As you can see, this is where my good intention came to die a miserable, slow, painful death. Not quite as cute as the pin, is it? Nope. In fact, it’s a little bit creepy.

And during the entire production, all I heard was this:

“Don’t let your balls get on me.”

“I can’t breathe. You’re squishing me.”

“Get OFF of me.”

“I am NOT putting my thumb in my mouth.”

“Stop breathing on my neck.”

“Why does it feel like you’re trying to hump my leg?”

“Eww, your hair is wet. Get it off me.”

Pinterest re-creation = FAIL!

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  I’ll just pick a different cute photo idea!
