Sisters Share It All: Pinterest Challenge

Like pretty much everyone I know, my sisters and I are big fans of Pinterest. And yet, sometimes it’s easy to get carried away with the pinning and forget to actually DO some of those things you pinned.

So for this round of Sisters Share It All, we’re each picking six things from our Pinterest boards to do over the next six weeks until I’m hosting again.

And if you’d like to join, we’d love to have you play along! Just pick six things from your boards, write a post about what you’ll be doing, share it in the link-up below, and then write about them as you go or write a final post in April (or a combo of the two. . .which is probably what I’ll be doing).

If you’d like a button to use in your posts, you can just grab the HTML code from the box below:

Sisters Share It All: Pinterest Challenge

Here are the six things I picked:

  1. Words on a Striped Shirt. This is the first fabric painting I’ve ever done that doesn’t involve puff paints. Hold me.
  2. Homemade Gummy Bears. I think Ella will die of happiness.
  3. Hey Cupcake! This is a ridiculously popular food truck in Austin, but in six years, I’ve never gone. Time to remedy that. 
  4. Stripes and colored pants. This was one of the very first things I pinned when I joined Pinterest and I’m finally going to recreate this outfit. Especially now that I own multiple pairs of colored pants from Old Navy (how can you resist when you have a gift card AND they are on sale for $8 a pair? You cannot). 
  5. Avocado Coconut Ice Cream. Pretty sure Bart (Sir Only-Mint-or-Cookie-Dough-Ice-Cream) will NOT die of happiness. But I probably will. 
  6. Gold Dot Mugs. To be perfectly honest, I’m tempted to buy a set of white mugs from IKEA (so cheap! So pretty!) but I have an unloved set of black mugs in a high cupboard that I will use instead. 

I’m so looking forward to seeing what Merrick and Landen picked to work on over the next six weeks!

    Just came across your blog. If you live in (or anywhere near) Austin you must go to Lick on South Lamar. Their coconut avocado ice cream is the best thing ever. I usually pair it with salted caramel. But don't decide until you've tasted them all!

      I love Lick! And that is the exact combination I got last time.

    I will totally be doing this.

    Haha! I already commented on Merrick's post about how excited I am to participate. I am doing gold dot plates, but eventually I want to "gold dot" a whole set of dishes!

    Fun! Most of the things I've pinned that I've actually done are cakes. I guess that says something about my priorities.

    I like this idea! It is way too easy to pin a million things and then never go back and look at them again. I need to pick a few things to get started on!

    Hope you enjoy the ice cream – it is so easy to make and so delicious!

    There is a Filipino desert that I love that has avocados (among other things) mixed with shaved ice and coconut ice cream. I've never considered just combining the avocados and coconut ice cream. Sounds delicious, should it turn out awful or awfully good I would be happy to taste test it for you!

    Yes – love this challenge! I just pinned those same homemade gummy bears over the weekend! I really want them to be as good as they look 🙂

  • Reply Ash February 20, 2013 at 2:37 am

    Thanks for the idea! Every time y'all do another round of this I get bitter at my sisters for not having blogs. 🙂

  • Reply Melanie February 20, 2013 at 3:26 am

    Challenge accepted! This actually goes right along with one of my new year's resolutions, and a couple of the pins I chose to do are things I pinned from your blog or repinned from your Pinterest boards. Also, I'm borrowing your idea and writing a "day in the life" post this week. I should be the president of your fan club or something!

    These are some great goals! Can't wait to see the dotted mugs and gummy bears!

  • Reply Lisa February 20, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    I keep thinking about those gummy bears, but mine would be gummy cubes.

    This reminds me Trish's Pin-it-do-it challenge:

    Come now. I also like chocolate ice cream of almost any kind. Let's be reasonable.

    I so want to try those homemade gummi bears! My favorite treat, healthier and homemade? Yes please!

    I'm so excited to see how your striped shirt with words turns out!

    The avocado coconut ice cream sounds like it would actually be really good–i love both! Real healthy too! I would love to know how it tastes.
