Pinterest Round-Up 7/18/12

Yes, I admit it...I got sucked into the Black Hole that is Pinterest this week! And to justify all the time I spent there, I figured the least I could do would be to blog about it and suck you in too.  Additionally (since I am officially addicted), I think it's fair to say that "Pinterest Round-Up" will be a new bi-weekly blog post you can bet your pants on!

 Here are some of my favorite things from the past week....Lord knows there were too many that I "liked" to put in one little post!  So, grab yourself a tasty beverage and enjoy a few Pins that I feel stand out from the rest!
(Click each pic for more information)

Vanilla Vodka Chai Tea

Full of "soft vanilla notes and sweet nutty almond flavor", this Chai Tea is sure to be a hit at your next adult gathering on a long, hot, Summer day!

Homemade Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate + Strawberries = Heaven!! Fill a deep ice tray with melted chocolate, put strawberries in and then freeze....It doesn't get any easier than that!

DIY Yarn Wrapped Painted Jars

This is definitely one of our most popular Pins found on our "All about being green" board. I can picture these beauties as table centerpieces for a laid back, outdoor wedding reception...can't you?

Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream

I love recipes that include coffee in the ingredient list and this one surely won't disappoint!  I have no idea where Humphrey Slocombe Ice Cream shop is located, but with this recipe just one click away, I'd say it doesn't matter!  Give it a whirl and let us know what you think.

...and if you enjoy a little kick in the pants with your coffee, I think this might be the kick you've been waiting for!
