My Favorite Pinterest Fail Ever...

We've all done it. We've seen something that looks awesome on Pinterest & think .. I can totally do that. You may even convince others to join you, because it can't really be that hard, right? This is how my favorite Pinterest fail began... 

Ella was only about 3 months old & I wanted to take a cute fall picture of her. She couldn't sit up on her own yet, so I was looking for a way to prop her up. That is when I stumbled across this Pinspiration...

I immediately sent it to my sister, who obviously cooed over it the same way that I did. That is how we ended up at Wegmans, picking out a pumpkin that would fit Baby Ella. I even got my husband involved, and he drilled perfectly round leg holes for us - rolling his eyes the whole time. The end result? She hated it & screamed the entire time. There isn't a single photo where she looks content, let alone happy to be sitting in a pumpkin. 

Even though they didn't turn out as planned, I absolutely love these photos. She may look like she's an extra in a horror movie, but she's still my little pumpkin. I pulled the photos out the other day & they immediately made me smile. They aren't perfect, but memories rarely are.

  1. This is HILARIOUS! It totally made my day! Thank you! Haha :) x

  2. this is so funny! we tried the pumpkin thing too and thankfully got a few good ones although the others are pretty funny. we should've done holes for legs because she was a little smashed in ours :)
