Working Hard

Here is the new paint color!  Ta..da!  It is called Tucson Winds, but I would much rather call it Tuscan winds because, come on, who really wants to live in Tucson.  It is from the Pottery Barn catalog, Benjamin Moore paint.  I went through a Hodge Podge of colors before deciding on this and I am very pleased.  Now I want some sort of pink pillows for my couch, I think it will look awesome!  Thank you again to my in-laws for painting for us while we were away!  
My friend Blair (whose blog is Hysterical BTW) inspired me to make Cinnamon rolls.  She got the recipe from The Pioneer Woman.  I have been wanting to make Cinnamon Rolls ever since Worth got back from Alaska some 4 years ago.  He came home with a very difficult recipe and I never attempted it, well my pregnancy induced sweet tooth kicked my bottom into cinnamon roll making over drive!  BellaRose, ever the helper, jumped right into help.  Her sweet disabled Dad (who has been laid up with a bulging disc? all week) made her some dough, while Momma rolled out the real dough.  Cooking for BellaRose is more like a full contact sport, flour is everywhere, but she sure does love to bake and help cook!  If you attempt to make this recipe be forewarned, it makes a ton!  I have three trays, with 1/2 the dough still in the fridge to make!  I might be in sugar overload.

I just made that last picture of BR my wallpaper. I could eat that floury baby up! I really cannot get over how adorable she is in that apron. So I need to see her ASAP

You may send some of those to me. Or, all of them. I don't usually have a sweet tooth, but this new baby has brought it out in me for sure.

LOVE the paint! You're family is so great!

BR looks ADORABLE with her apron on rolling out dough. Precious! I have a feeling I'll be raiding Cinnabon later today....not the same as homemade though :)

Very impressive, Sunday! I might try that recipe soon. I know everyone already told you this but BellaRose is the cutest little cook ever. With her own dough, too-- great idea Worth.
Paint looks great! I need to come over and check it out and also check out one of those cinnamon rolls.

that paint looks so good. it's perfect, and pillows would be awesome. there are some at target right now on sale that you like a while back, hard to describe, but give you a reason to go search around target for a while.
i love those pictures of her helping, smart thinking giving her her own.
those look amazing and so so so dangerous, i don't think i could stop eating them.
