Pinterest Favorites: 358 Repins


At some point in the previous couple of months, my pinterest page exploded. I started getting followers all over the place, and I had no idea why. I'm up past 1,000 now and would like to keep that train moving.

This is exactly the kind of thing I keep hoping will happen on my blog, but so far no such luck.

The thing with Pinterest is that it doesn't have to be overwhelming. It's better when you just pin things you actually like or will do. I don't get people who make random boards full of pictures of celebrities. That seems completely unhelpful. I use Pinterest as a resource to find fun new recipes, clothing styles, and fitness tips, and I don't get all stressed out about it.

I thought it would be fun to share are a few things that are getting pinned and repinned like madness. You should get on the bandwagon and do some pinning yourself.

First, follow me on pinterest. Everyone's doing it.

1. Teardrop necklace DIY -- 44 repins
I saw this necklace tutorial on my blogger friend Ashley's blog. 
I haven't tried it yet, but I will. Promise.
Get the pin here.

2. Skinny Sour Cream Enchiladas -- 29 repins
I haven't tried these either, so apparently I lie about trying the things I pin. 
But I WILL make these. Promise x2. 
Pin here.

3. Crispy Glazed Snack Mix -- 12 repins
Yum! Yes.

4. 100 Running Songs -- 358 repins
This blog has a HUGE list of running songs, and people are going crazy repinning this one.
It's what I like to call pintastic.
From my fitness board here.
Running songs here.

5. 10-Minute Ab Video -- 116 repins
This workout is TOUGH. But awesome. 
Everyone is obsessed with planking right now. 
Pin here.
Video here.

My fitness board is getting the most love. 
I am having a lot of fun pinning workouts, videos, and exercise articles. 

I used to say I didn't like Pinterest, but that's because I didn't know what I was talking about.
It's kind of like when I said I didn't like pistachios. 
Seriously, who doesn't like pistachios? They are SO GOOD. 
Jordan and I are obsessed. 

Anyway, if you have a pinterest, follow me. 
And if you don't have a pinterest, get one and then follow me.

And then pin something about pistachios.

Oooh thanks for the necklace, love Amanda! I'm actually wearing that necklace today!

And I'm with you on Pinterest - I get on every day, but I only pin things if I know it's something I'll want to look at later. I have NO IDEA why people have millions of pins - how overwhelming!
