Oh YUMMY...don't these Cinnamon Rolls look amazing?
We made a familiar Sticky Bun recipe (click here for the recipe) last night and I thought I would reshare these with you. Last night's version turned out so well, I thought I would share a few new photos of these too. Good news is it helped me stay busy and not miss my daughter who had to depart again from home yesterday to head off to summer camp where she is a wonderful counselor. She is so excited to go bless the kids of Winshape Camp this summer and I know that they all will be a huge blessing to her. We look forward to her return again at the end of summer!!! :O)
Well as I said above, we have been enjoying our daughter home for the last two weeks. Because she goes to college about 1200 miles away, I like to be able to drop everything and spend time with her when she is here. We had an amazing two weeks. We snuggled up and got caught up on a lot of DVR shows we (and she) hadn't stayed up with. We also went to a few new movies she wanted to see. We went shopping...and boy did we have fun shopping all over CT and even some in NY! Part of our shopping missions was to make sure she was ready for the fun theme days at her summer camp this summer. We had a blast creating a Repunzel costume, mimicking from Tangle movie, which is one of my daughter's favorites. (I will share later the step by step "how-to's" with you!)
Also as you can see in the photos above, I got to enjoy a fabulous Mother's Day with all three of my kids home. They surprised me with the driveway artwork. They also created my favorite dessert all by themselves, White Chocolate Covered Strawberries!!! So yummy. And my daughter even did ALL our laundry on Mother's Day for the week as a special gift to me! I also got to upgrade my iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5 for Mother's Day. I can't beat that.
Also the fun photo above with her lip out and the adorable patriotic dress, was because she wanted a dress just like it and it was of course too small. She LOVEs these cute little dresses....and we had a great time just admiring them! :) We also got to visit a friend in NY and go through an Outlet Mall that had any outlet store you could imagine. We were probably the most excited over the Under Armor, Vineyard Vines, Columbia, Spyder stores and SO much more!!!
So as you can see we have been busy and enjoying our time as a family. I have SO loved it, but today I am officially back to my normal schedule of posting. I have a great easy dinner recipe to share with you tomorrow. And an absolutely amazing story of a great military family doing wonderful things for others that I will highlight later in the week. So stay tuned and come back to see what else is on the horizon. Please consider signing up via email so you don't miss what is coming next!
