cinnamon rolls and onsies

I read a lot of blogs.  Sometimes I think it's a great thing and sometimes not so much. 
The good:  tons of great decorating and crafting ideas, inspiration for many aspects of my life, feeling connected to other women/people who I would normally have no connection with, and being able to hear the perspectives and opinions of other people and moms out there.
The bad: reading blogs can sometimes make me feel bad about myself.  I will start to feel less than or stressed that my life isn't like the person's I am reading about.  I know, it sounds ridiculous.

My point: try not to do this if you are an avid blog-reader like I am!!! Everyone's life seems perfect when they pick and chose what they want to write about.  I just like to remind myself of that fact every once and a while. 

 So anyway, I wanted to share two things.  The first is this amazing cinnamon roll recipe I made a few Sundays ago.  They were sooo delicious and perfect.  Try it if you like cinnamon rolls!! They make a ton so they would be a great thing to make for breakfast if you have company or something.

The second thing I wanted to share is the only sewing I've done in what feels like months.  And it's not even a whole lot of real sewing.  I bought some plain white onsies to decorate with some very cute applique designs.  I'm happy with how they've turned out! It feels good to see one of my many projects finished.    

One of the last two is going to be baby #2's first outfit.  I tried to make them gender-neutral...a little girl can wear a tie right?!? 

Speaking of baby, I'm hoping this little muffin isn't born until their due date at least.  It would be incredibly awesome to have these next two weeks to prepare our house and other things before he or she arrives.  But, babies are born whenever they well please so this baby could be here at any point here on out.  That's an exciting but slightly frightening thought!
