My Favorite Pinterest Pins for August 2013


I have been doing posts about my most favorite things that I have pinned on pinterest since January.  It is no secret that I have a tiny addiction to pinterest, and I have so much fun putting these posts together every month.  Back in the beginning of the year I put together a post titled My Favorite Pinterest Pins For 2012.  That post turned out to be my most popular post ever, with over 27,000 hits, and it is still getting hits today!  Who knew? 
So, ever since I have been posting my favorites for the month.  I missed posting for July, and by the time I got around to it, it sort of felt too late, so this is my favorites for actually July and August.  I always try to give a link back to the original source under each picture, if at all possible.  Are you ready for some eye candy?  Enjoy!

Favorite party dip.

Mississippi Sin Dip- SO GOOD! Let's just say that I made this for a party and the ENTIRE thing was gone in an hour or less! I used light sour cream and light cream cheese (not that that really helps this "sinful" dip) SO good. Maybe add a few hits of hot sauce.
