Best of the best

by Khushboo on September 28, 2012

In theory suck sick days are great:

  • You get to stay in your PJs till evening without anyone questioning you
  • Nap-time is encouraged
  • If you’re lucky enough to live with your family/roommates, being pampered is likely

In reality the novelty wore off by noon yesterday…and then the weakness & fever-induced sweating kicked in.  In between all the nose blowing, multiple cups of tea, and sleeping, I also managed to stay entertained with the amazing Pinterest.  After pinning like it was my job, I couldn’t not share!  Here goes, the best of the best, courtesy of Pinterest:

Haha, Pinterest is always good for a good laugh! Right now, I’m really enjoying training my arms and feeling the burn after getting in some good strength training. Since I run a lot I don’t worry AS much about toning up my legs because that comes with the territory!

I can totally relate…plus I find it SO much harder to run after lower body workouts! The combo of the 2 is just lethal to the legs!

Lol omigosh I love the Apple knock-off one.

Sorry that you’re not feeling well, hun. Lots of rest, water, soup, vitamin C, and cookies, and you’ll be good as new before you know it :)

THanks, Amanda! Love that you added cookies to the list…probably the most effective form of medication ;) !

This post made me laugh…a lot! Thank you! Where do you find your graphics.

And I love to train my butt – I actually love squats and lunges…well maybe not lunges so much but definitely squats!

Oh Pinterest – duh!

Hahah I have a love-hate relationship with lunges…and the soreness that comes with them!

Oh no! I hope you’re better soon. Where do I follow you on Pinterest?!

Khushboo September 29, 2012 at 6:44 pm

Thanks, Sable! My version of “pinning” is pretty ghetto- more of a case of me just saving the images in a folder on my desktop called “Pinterest”. I just can’t get my head around pinning!

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table September 29, 2012 at 1:25 am

Hahahaha! You ALWAYS have the best stuff. I think I have that pie pinned too, actually… and I need to pin the last pic!

Khushboo September 29, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Let me know if you ever make the pie…I just need someone’s birthday/an excuse to give it a try!

Man oh man I love Pinterest!! I love these pins. BOOO to being sick, I hope you are back to 100% soon. I like to train my arms the most, which in turn help with my upper back!

Khushboo September 29, 2012 at 6:46 pm

Thanks, Britt! I used to hate training my arms because I was such a weakling. Fortunately that has changed…somewhat ;) !

I hope you feel better soon!

Pinterest is awesome. If I feel a little down, I head straight for the Humour section. The Apple photo is hilarious!!

Khushboo September 29, 2012 at 6:46 pm

Thanks Megan! THe Humor section always guarantees a laugh!

Tessa @ Amazing Asset September 29, 2012 at 7:27 am

Aww man so sorry you are feeling ill! so true though, the “fun” of being sick gets old quite quickly, especially when you feel like total butt head.
On a more fun note though, great pins! I am repinning a whole slew of these for sure.. and love those first pair of shoes!

Khushboo September 29, 2012 at 6:47 pm

Thanks Tess! “Butt head” perfectly describes how I felt haha!

Hope you’re feeling better and resting loads this weekends. Why don’t you start pinning on pinterest so we can follow you – you always find such fun things!
My favorite body part to train is my legs. Have a love hate relationship with lunges but feels so good once i’m done.
Get Well Soon

Thanks, KC! I am ashamed to admit that I still don’t get the whole concept of pinning and following others on Pinterest! Teach me when you come!

I love to workout my legs. I love the feeling I get. And there’s nothing like a great looking pair of legs

Can’t argue there! :)

oh my gosh, too many hilarious ones there!!!
I love the chopsticks idea with the soysauce!!!

Reply

Khushboo October 1, 2012 at 1:50 pm

It would definitely solve my problem of overdoing it with the soy sauce while dipping!

Jess September 30, 2012 at 3:15 pm

Oh I hope you feel better! Those desserts look amazing! This post cracked me up!! Love the boyfriend material!!

Khushboo October 1, 2012 at 1:55 pm

If a guy used that line on me, I don’t think I’d have the heart to turn him down ;) !

Aww feel better K! Pinterest is amazing and some of these pictures cracked me up! :) I love the top and the desserts and the sushi invention…but the apple knock off was too good!

Khushboo October 1, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Thanks Sonal! I knew the dessert-lover in you would share my sentiments ;) !

I hope you’ve been able to rest up this weekend, Khushboo! It seems like everyone is getting sick this week; I guess it’s that time of year. :-/ Pinterest is my preferred distraction when I’m not feeling my best too. Sometimes it’s nice to have an excuse to spend hours pinning, right?

Those flats are ADORABLE. Want! And the chat-up line made me literally laugh out loud because a guy once pulled a very similar line in a bar. Seriously! Maybe he saw it on Pinterest? That would make it so much better. Haha!

I need those cookies n’ cream rice krispies. Like, right now. However I think your yummus hummus burgers might be a smarter option. I’m going to the store today to pick up the ingredients! xoxo <3

Reply

Khushboo October 1, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Definitely something to do with the time of the year- must be the change in weather! And that’s too funny that you’ve actually been hit on with that line :) ! Hope you enjoyed the burgers!

Ameena October 1, 2012 at 2:57 am

I have thus far managed to avoid Pinterest…one more sick day though and I might succumb!

I hope you feel better today!

Reply

Khushboo October 1, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Haha you and me both- I spent more time on Pinterest on Thursday then I have my entire life!

Corrie Anne October 1, 2012 at 7:19 am

Thanks Corrie Anne, feeling SO much better :) !

Nice post. I was all excited about the flats, but when I clicked on the picture I was disappointed. Hermes? :-) The top is sooooooo hot, the backless one. Love it.
Hope you are feelin’ better!!!

Reply

Khushboo October 1, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Hahah unfortunately the price isn’t as attractive as the actual flats ;) !

Kat October 1, 2012 at 6:51 pm
