Your Weekly Pins

Another Friday, another week of pins! Here's what caught my eye on Pinterest this week...

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala 

[Although I love Indian food, I don't eat it very often. When I do, it's usually microwaved from Trader Joes (you guys, their frozen chicken tikka masala is seriously the jam), but when I'm feeling slightly more ambitious, I just may have to try this slow-cooker version of one of my favorite Indian dishes.]

"Oatmeal" minus the oats (Paleo) 
[I can get on board with the whole Paleo diet thing. It makes sense for the most part, but I just like grains way too much to full abide by this practice. However, I'm very interested to try this "Oatmeal Minus the Oats" recipe to see how it stands up to my longtime every-morning favorite breakfast meal.]

Dark chocolate stout brownies (with a super special ingredient!) 
[Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, if you weren't aware. Now, I don't always celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and if there's any Irish in my blood, it's too busy being drowned out by all that German. BUT I can definitely get behind adding Guinness to brownies and calling them a St. Patty's Day treat. What makes these brownies even more enticing? The super special ingredient that will fool you like a Leprechaun.]

Guinness Chocolate Cake with Baileys Irish Cream Cheese Frosting 
[What's better than adding Guinness to brownie batter? Adding it to cake batter. And then topping that cake with Bailey's Irish Cream-laced frosting. I am so close to baking this amazing cake up this weekend, although I don't know who I'd feed it to!]

Chevron weakness... cannot control. 

[Last week, I discovered a little online shop called Spool 72 and I immediately wanted nearly every single dress listed. This is one of them. Further proving my obsession with chevron has not waned.]

Super-cute colorblock 
[Hey, remember right above when I was talking about loving the dresses at Spool 72? This is another one.]

pretty flats - Aldo 
[Aldo has a lot of great shoes out for spring, like these super-pretty pink flats. I'm thisclose to ordering a pair of my own!]

LOVE this suit! 
[Whether we like it or not, swimsuit season is just around the corner. Immediately when I saw this gorgeous lemon-yellow suit, I wanted it. How cute is that braided single strap? And the wide waistband looks like it'd be flattering. I was so close to buying it, then I looked at the price tag and realized it was $550. Then I realized that is ridiculous. Then I realized I wanted cake.]

Making stamps from erasers 

[Recently, I MacGyvered my own little stamp for a project I'll hopefully be able to share with you next week. It involved a few minutes on brainstorming in the wood-working aisle at Michael's when they didn't have the exact shape stamp I needed. I never thought of cutting a large eraser to use as a stamp, but it's such a smart, thrifty idea! I'll be putting this one in my back pocket for later.]

doorknob table numbers 

[I'm gaga over these fantastic door-knob table numbers. They look so easy (and relatively inexpensive!) to make. And what a cool, rustic vibe (especially for a couple so focused on home design/projects!).]

spring floral bouquet 
[This is such a pretty bouquet. I never thought I cared about my bridal bouquet, but the more I look at my Gettin' Hitched board, the more I realize I find so many bouquets I absolutely love. This pretty peach and pink one is fantastic!]

great colour palette by Studio Fludd... more or less our wedding palette! 
[When I came across whatever the heck these rock-looking things are, I realized it is almost exactly the full color palette I've been envisioning for our wedding. All shades and colors are represented, though it uses just a bit more green than I think we will in our decor.]

rough color scheme 
[Here's another good example of the color palette I like, minus a few colors I'd like to incorporate. These four colors together just scream "ice cream parlor" to me - and I love it!]

Odds and ends in our "ice cream social" color scheme! 
[Oh hey, more odds and ends that fit in the family of my desired color palette! Not only are the colors great, but I think I want every single thing shown here, as well! (P.S. I just discovered this blog a few days ago and it won me over instantly - a first-visit add to my Google Reader within five minutes!)]

There's plenty more where these came from! To see everything I pin all week long, follow me on Pinterest.
