Linking up with The Albrechts and A Beautiful Exchange today for The Girl Between the Lines!

A post about my all-time favorite pins EVER has been on my list for awhile, so considering the topic of this linkup, it seemed perfect to finally pick my fave pins. Without further ado, here are the pins that have been the most successful, most delicious, most helpful or most inspiring to me.

1. Through a Rapist’s Eyes: Tips for Women. One of my biggest fears is getting murdered/attacked/raped/something else awful, so articles like these make me feel better about my chances of possibly surviving something like that. Call me paranoid, but I call it prepared.

2. Spa in a Jar. I made my own slightly altered version for some friends and family for Christmas, and they loved it. I made my own bath salts too, which made it more special. I’m totally doing more things like this in the future.

3. Upcycling old candles. We have tons of old candles laying around that I didn’t have the heart to throw away, so this was a perfect project for me. I used the old wax from several to make one new candle! You can even read about the result of my doing this pin one weekend!

4. Leo and Harry with a dog and a cat. No real reason for this one besides great for looking at when you need to smile.

5. I simply cannot pick just one recipe pin. So here’s a few of the recipes I’ve actually made from Pinterest and loved so much that they now are in frequent rotation in our household’s meal plan.

Baked Spinach Eggs. Love this for breakfast on the weekends.

Cheesy Chicken Tacquitos. So easy and delicious! Make extra and freeze for leftovers too!

Potato Corn Chowder. Best soup I’ve ever made at home. Yum!

Chicken with Pesto and Asparagus. Shameless self promo, this is my own take on a pin that I loved so much I made my own pin and blog post about it.

  6. Oh my gosh! Just read the article about how to avoid rape… thanks for sharing! I’m super paranoid about something horrible happening to me, too, and this was so great!! I repinned it. Thanks for linking up!

    • Thanks for hosting! It is terrifying. I heard some backlash about that article/pin questioning the lack of citation/sources and sketchy looking website, but I feel like any way you can feel more prepared is good, regardless. It makes me feel slightly more confident about what to do in a panic situation like that. Glad you enjoyed it too!
