Eat | Pinned It Made It Ate It #2

Coconut Chicken from She Wears Many Hats

Shredded Brussels Sprouts With Lemon and Poppy Seeds from Whole Living

Spinach and Artichoke Grilled Cheese from The Wiegands

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken from Damn Delicious

The first month of the #PinMakeEat Challenge was a total success! Each week I made a different dish for dinner, and each one was absolutely delicious. It’s so nice to be able to say I actually make recipes that I pin!

It’s hard to choose a favourite of this group, so I’ll say for lunch it’s the spinach and artichoke grilled cheese and for dinner the slow cooker butter chicken. I’d like to try the coconut chicken again, but I’d broil it for the last 5-10 minutes to get it nice and crispy on top.

I can’t wait to try more recipes from my Pinterest Eat board! Follow along on twitter and instagram with the hashtag #pinmakeeat!

Did you make a recipe from pinterest this month?

Instagram Party - #bloggerspotlight on Squirrelly Minds

Being a blogger can be a little lonely. I mean, I’m sitting here in this empty house, blaring music (resisting the urge to dance wildly) and involuntarily resting my vocals due to a lack of people to talk to. My thumbs get a hell of a work out texting though.

So when Melissa of Lulu the Baker e-mailed the above group to ask if we wanted to support and promote each other through our instagram community, I jumped aboard. These women are doing amazing things on their blogs and instagram feeds. They are a daily inspiration and urge me to create more, do more and blog better.

You’ll see us around instagram giving each other some love, because that’s what blogging is about, promoting what and who you adore. And these 11 ladies? I adore every single one of them.

Check out the hashtag #bloggerspotlight on instagram to feel the love!

And speaking about love, I’m being featured on The Gold Zebra today! I met Teresa at Alt in January and due to mutual friends, growing up in the same city and being awesome, we instantly clicked. Check it out!

You all know my favourite instagram follows, who’s yours?

Go ahead and call me crazy cat lady, but I am seriously considering making a mini no sew teepee to cover Lucy’s litter box. We can make our bathrooms super beautiful so why not do the same for our kitties? (Yes…I’m insane).

Maybe it’s due to the arrival of spring and sunshine, but I’m really into bright colours right now. I can’t get enough of those neon paper bows and Hilary’s bright yellow shoes!
You can expect a lot of colour on my pinterest boards in the next while.

What colour palette or scheme are you digging right now?
