Stilettos and Diapers: Lesson learned from Pinterest

Lesson learned from Pinterest

I love all things Pinterest. Its completely addicting. I pin away all throughout the day, then when hubs gets home, I show him all the things I need him to make for the house. 

I have an entire folder pinned for fall things. Adorable things. Like these presh acorn cookies  that I decided to make for play group tomorrow. I got all the ingredients and got Coop all hyped up to help me.

When I started putting them together, I realized they look weird. Not like acorns. Not like the pin I had been drooling over for a couple weeks. More like flying saucers. Or those pesky mushrooms in my front yard.

I hurried over to my beloved pin and actually followed the link to the instructions. It was there I realized that you are supposed to use mini vanilla wafers. Loverly.

I almost quit and just ate the entire bag of Hershey kisses. Since I couldn't get to the store to buy the mini ones, I just went ahead and made them. Weird and all, I guess they're kinda cute. Not really acornish, but I learned an important lesson today.

I learned to never trust someone's description under a pin. Don't just look at the picture and think "oh, those look so easy!" and make your shopping list. They could have very well left the all important word "mini" from their 4 simple ingredient list. Follow the link and get the real instructions. 
That is unless you really love serving weird UFO looking cookies to your neighbors.

  4. Haha this post had me giggling. I never trust myself to make something look like the picture. I always click the link. But I also like to be nosey and see where the link takes me

  5. haha! I have so done this before! I can't tell you how many times I have gotten home from the store and had the wrong ingredients, not enough, forgot something all because I didn't look at the directions. The UFOs still look like very cute little UFOs!

  6. They look YUMMY! Although the ones with the butterscotch kinda look like nipples :) But then again I always think they look like nipples even outside of this recipe. Did I say nipple too much in this comment? Sorry :)

  8. They look yummy, who cares if you made them right or not. Also, I haven't gotten on the pinterest bandwagon, but all the cute things on blogs are making me want to test it out.
