Pinterest | Features Still Needed & Easter Success


Hey Pinterest!!! LISTEN UP! THESE ARE REALLY GOOD IDEAS….

I would like to see two major features/improvements added to Pinterest.

1. A beautiful Golden Sparkly Star "sticker" in the corner of a pin that you actually complete or apply to your life. You just click it like the "heart" on pins. I need this gold star for a couple reasons. The biggest one is obvious…I just want a gold star for doing something cool. This gold star "completion recognition" stems from my being a list maker enthusiast --just so I can cross things off…Recognizing I have completed a task or craft or well…anything is basically like crack to me. Therefore this gold star is needed to feed my addiction. Secondly, we need this to keep track of what things we have done….for instance I pin very similar recipes sometimes and then I can't remember which one of eleventy billion green bean recipes was the one I tried 2 weeks ago. The organizational freak in me needs the gold star for this reason.

2. A simple ranking system that could be just 1, 2, or 3 -OR- giving grades like "A" etc to the pins we try or reference. Then, whatever you rank it would be visible to everyone else who follows you. It might help with scenarios like where I  pinned an amazing pair of aztec shorts and when I go to see the source of the pin I find that it just from freaking "Photobucket" and now I still have no information of what store or place to track down these shorts. Now, I'm just pissed because I know these shorts exist. Don't tell me they don't. I see this girl wearing them…. WHERE ARE THEY SOLD????  It would be nice to see that hey this is a great photo for inspiration but don't expect to get any real info from it. This system might also be used to indicate that this new recipe I tried was basically the bomb dot com…..or vice versa…to warn me that you tried it and it was totally nothing special. I need this additional information from Pinterest.

With that said, I don't see these upgrades on my Pinterest account yet so I'm going to the only thing I know how which is tell you what I made for Easter and tell you which recipes I used and that they were super amazing, easy, and you basically need to try today yet….

My meal looked like this…I didn't take the time to take "pinterest worthy" photos because I was just enjoying my family time but I'm including my actual pinned sources for these dishes in this post so you can see their mouth watering photos.


These lemon meringue pies…My mother makes the best…you will never find a lemon pie as good. 
Ok the Chicken Parmesan, Garlic Green Beans, and the Parmesan Roasted Potatoes are huge hits in my family. I hope that you will try these! So in case your missing the whole point of the post….This is me giving them a gold glittery star sticker and then ranking them with an A+++++




Trust me…You will thank me. 

And just some fun Easter photos to end with because I'm basically obsessed with the cuteness and I have no shame...

  2. Don't even get me started about how pissed I am when someone pins something other than from the original pin and also I get grumpy when people don't change the text on the pin and its like "I can't wait to do this for this baby" and then I'm like OMG so and so is pregnant FALSE just bad pinterest etiquette

  3. Should you ever visit my Pinterest boards, please know that I hardly ever change the script at the bottom. Don't judge me. I'm a bad pinner. I tend to scan through and pin things I like, then go back at a later time and go through them, weed out the broke/nonexistent links or things that were just not helpful. But ... that could take a while. I do really like your systems! Let's see if we can get on that!

    1. I NEVER EVER change the text! I don't read the text either on other peoples…so that particular issue that bugs people doesn't bother me at all!

  4. Yes, seriously...there should be the options for ratings for recipes instead of just going into the comments and such. Totally agree with you about the gold star too...because everyone needs a gold star every once in a while!

    1. I really need the rating system. I want people to know when I make something and its seriously so good..and vice versa. I need everyone else's input too. I made these homemade mozzarella sticks one time and while they tasted great they were just a big pile of smoosh…and of course I had made these for visitors.
