Pinterest is the new mecca for us creative types. Love decorating? There are boards for that. Love books? You can showcase your favorites. Need style/fashion/life inspiration? You’ll find it all. Spending time on this site brings us back to the days of making collages and dream boards, and we’re not ashamed to say we’re obsessed. Whether you’re already pinning to win or haven’t taken the plunge yet, these 50 parents (see the full list here) will wow and entertain you with their boards — we know this because we follow them (and think you should too). When choosing our favorite 50 parents on Pinterest, we focused on the overall quality of their page, not solely on how many followers or boards they have. Are their boards engaging? Helpful? Unique? Like any major list, it was extremely difficult to narrow it down, so please, if we forgot someone you love please nominate him or her here. Happy Pinning! — Amy Levin-Epstein & Dara Pettinelli

The What’s What: It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere, and with Alison’s “Cocktails Calling My Name” board you never have to look far for inspiration. We love the variety of pink sips, from grapefruit mojitos to birthday cake martinis — perfect for a girls’ night in. And if you’re a foodie, surf on over to “Foods I Love” for drool-worthy pins, like popsicles packed with real kiwis and strawberries, and enormous Oreo cupcakes that look perfect for sharing — or not.
