If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.
I hope everyone had as wonderful of a weekend as I did. My family traveled down to Oklahoma to watch my cousin’s football team take on The University of Tulsa, and it was so fun to get to spend the weekend with them. I wish I would have found some of these recipes to bring to our tailgate, but there is always next week. Here is this week’s edition of Sally’s Pins.

Braided Top Knot: I love simple ways to pull back your hair, and the braids add so much detail to this bun.

Mexican Stuffed Peppers with Quinoa & Black Beans: Yummy! This is a great way to cut out the carbs without adding meat. I can’t wait to try this recipe!
Bed Linen Storage Idea: My linen closet is the biggest eyesore in my house. Storing bed sheets in pillowcases might be the solution I need.

14 Week Home Organization Program: My husband calls my need for organization “nesting.” I call it peace and serenity. I feel so much better after a deep cleaning session.
Party Idea Website: Anyone throwing out ideas for Mac and Cheese Cups at a party is brilliant in my books. I can’t wait to use this website for my next party.
Before and After Photo with Baby: There are so many cute ways to document before and after baby photos, but I especially like the use of blocks in this one.
Wine Glass with Calorie Measurements: I need this wine glass! I am so bad at eyeballing wine servings, and I love that besides ounces it also has calorie content on there.
What do you think is the perfect serving size for a glass of wine?
