stuff for spring

Hi friends!  I’ve missed you!  It’s been a crazy couple of weeks.  One of my best friends got engaged a week and a half ago and some of us girls were able to surprise her by showing up at the engagement party.  It was a whirlwind trip, but well worth it!  She is a die-hard Chick-fil-a fan so, for the engagement, her boyfriend had the Chick-fil-a cow show up at her doorstep with the ring!!  Apparently, the video got sent to Mr Cathy himself!

My latest post went live at Dr. Mommy Online today.  It’s all about hot colors for Spring!!  Be sure to check it out HERE.

Sorry that we’re almost halfway through March and you’re just now getting this.  The new March calendar from Creature Comforts is available to download HERE.  So cute!

If you’re still trying to add a little Spring to your desktop background, Vera Bradley has some free wallpapers available for download HERE.

Have you recovered from Spring forward this past weekend?  I have and I am LOVING the extra daylight!

Happy Wednesday!

the crescent roll chronicles: part 2

I’m realizing how easy it is to make a number of yummy food items with crescent rolls.  If you haven’t tried Andreas yet, be sure to check out the recipe HERE.  They’re yummy sausage and cream cheese crescent rolls that I usually make for Thanksgiving breakfast and they’re super easy.  I guess that post should’ve been titled “the crescent roll chronicles: part 1”, but I didn’t think of it at the time…although, it does explain why this is part 2!

Part 2 of the crescent roll chronicles is another super easy crescent roll recipe for cinnamon rolls found via Pinterest from HERE!

Ingredients for rolls:

2 cans of crescent rolls

1 stick of butter (softened)

1/2 cu. of white or brown sugar (I used white)

2 tblspn. of cinnamon

Ingredients for glaze:

1/2 cup of powdered sugar

2 tblspns of milk or water

1 tspn of vanilla

Step 1:

Mix sugar, butter and cinnamon together until it creates a paste like this…

Step 2:

Lay crescent rolls triangles out on pan and smear cinnamon/sugar paste onto each triangle

Step 3:

Roll up (wide side, first)

Step 4:

Bake as directed.

(*Note: either grease the pan or bake on foil because the cinnamon filling does ooze out and caramelize onto the pan!)

Step 5:

While they’re baking mix glaze using milk (or water), powdered sugar, and vanilla

 Step 6:

Drizzle glaze on top of cinnamon rolls after they come out of the oven.

And, serve.

Yummmm!  They’re so good. Let me know what you think!

On another exciting note (yes, cinnamon rolls are exciting), Asa’s faux bois rug came in this weekend.  His reading/play nook is now complete!

So fun!

And finally, Ez over at Creature Comforts posted the February printable calendar.  Be sure to download yours HERE–they’re the cutest!
