Pinned It, Did It Monday! {2 recipes and 2 skirts}

pinned itI was wondering why this wasn’t posted this afternoon when I checked.  Guess when I wrote it last night, I set it to publish tonight at 6, not this morning.  Whoops.

Welcome to Pinned It, Did It Monday where I show you the pins or ideas I’ve actually implemented from Pinterest.  Remember that clicking on the picture will take you directly to pinterest so you can repin it yourself.  Or I’ve linked the actual source as well!pin #1I’ve been a kick for pinning skirts to sew for Ellie.  So be warned you may see a lot of them coming up in the future. :)

My picture:shirts to skirtsMy review: This was a very easy tutorial to follow, even though sewing with knits is not for the faint of heart.  These two shirts were in my goodwill pile so it was “free” fabric.  The blue one was an old maternity shirt that had a large stain on it.  Can you find it?  Haha.  Although the skirts are cute, there are no elastic in them.  I found them a little difficult to get on Ellie without worrying about ripping a seam.  While a great fabric stash buster, I’m not sure I’ll be making these again.  I think I’ll stick to cute little skirts that have elastic in the #2I seriously have to look up how to hard boil eggs every time I do it, so I thought I might as well pin this so I know where to look.

My review: No pics from me as it would have looked exactly like the picture above.  Except in a brown bowl.  Followed the instructions exactly and it made perfect eggs!  Definitely a winner pin here!pin 3And a recipe for you.

My picture: Note to self.  Do not become a food photographer.  Taken in bad lighting with my phone.  Look at her picture, not mine.Picture 441My review:  This was really good!  William wants it on the regular rotation.  I made mine a touch spicier using this seasoning as opposed to the taco packet.  But super easy to let it sit in the crockpot.  I shredded the chicken at the end and we rolled it in tortillas with lettuce, sour cream, and cheese.  Yum!  I also made these ribs, which were very good, but am too lazy to add to this right now.  Good night all, I’m in for a doozer of a night I know as both O and E are sick.  :(


  1. If you use a stretch stitch when you sew with your knits, you don't have to worry about popping your seams. I learned it the hard way! I LOVE knit, so I've figured out how to get around all those tricky things!

  2. Michelle - thank you SO much for that note. A quick google search opened up a whole new world. While I feel like I am mastering cottons, knits scare me. But there's so many adorable things to do with it. So thanks for any tips!!

  3. So, I have snubbed my nose at Pinterest for any manly reason I can come up with...BUT I do enjoy you doing the work and finding all of these yummy recipes for me! I'm making this chicken tomorrow. How about once a month, you do a "Pinned it, did it" edition dedicated just to food?

    Fold this up and tuck it into your suggestion box.

  4. Gabe, I can't promise one every month as I don't love to cook like you do. But I will definitely give ya a few more dedicated to recipes. :)
