Cinnamon Roll Waffles

 I mean...
Just look at these and TRY not to drool on your computer!

Ready for the super complicated ingredient list?
Can of Cinnamon Rolls
Cooking Spray
Powdered Sugar
Vanilla Extract. 

I promise. 

The Waffles:
Get your waffle iron out and heat 'er up
Spray a healthy coat of cooking spray on both sides
Put one rolled up cinnamon roll in the middle of the iron
Close the iron (you might need to push down a bit) for ~3-4 minutes (til they cook)

Remove and Repeat. 

The Icing:
Take the little cup of icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls and scoop into a small bowl
Add 1/3 cup of powdered sugar
Add 1 tablespoon of milk
Add 1/3 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Mix it all together well
Then use your fork to drip the icing over the hot waffles. 
Then use your fork to eat them. 

I told you! Super super easy and simple. You'll love them

Scenes from the Weekend

Things have been going along all crazy year. 
I'm definitely enjoying the weekends, and trying to find my voice again for this little spot of mine. 

Friday Night was for tacos, 

and relaxing with a book in the tub.

I've picked up Serena and it's actually pretty good so far. 
I tend to stick with non-fiction or historical fiction, so it's a bit of a change of pace.
Except not really, since it's set in the early 1900s..
in Western, North Carolina...
and they talk about Biltmore. 

Saturday morning we worked on cleaning out the guest room a bit. 
Shiva helped. 

Then we met up with some of Mike's friends from Georgia Tech for a beer.  

A pretty uneventful Saturday night switched into a perfectly relaxed Sunday Morning. 
A perfect Sunday morning complete with mimosas and bloody marys,  

and Cinnamon Roll Waffles, 

and a lot of Football. 

Why do weekends seem to be so short?
Why is my glass always empty?
Deep questions going on over here ;)

HOWEVER: Check back this week for a LIFE CHANGING recipe:
Cinnamon. Roll. Waffles. 
They're easier than poptarts and so delicious, you'll flip. I swear

Hey Y'all. 
Do you remember when I used to blog all the time?
Then, I promised to "keep blogging" even when stuff happened.
THEN, I promised I'd be back. 

Now, it's 6 months later. 

I'm sorry. 
I want to tell you all about our Europe 2012 trip, 
and our move to California, 
finding a job in Cali and making this house a home, 
and settling into life. 

I want to tell you about my parents meeting Mike's parents here, 
and both of those people's visits to Cali. 

I want to tell you about our trips to visit friends for weddings, 
and family for holidays. 

I want to tell you about visiting Monterrey for Mike's birthday, 
Cambria for my birthday, 
and our 10000 trips to Sonoma. 

I want to tell you about our wedding, 
and our honeymoon in Australia. 

I want to get back in touch with you. 
I'm going to try, I really am.

Wedding Randoms

(Say it like Oprah. JUST. DO. IT.)

I wanted to get one to use on the welcome table during the wedding, 
as well as in life after the wedding, 
(we all know I lurve a good monogram)
and after searching out a good etsy vendor, 
She's HERE. 


That is all. Back to your day.

Last time I blinked it was August and now, it's straight up 2014. 
I'm sorry I disappeared. (I know, I know. You've heard it all before!)

I think instead of trying to catch you all the way up, I'm just going to start fresh. 
Then maybe do some throwbacks when I can. 
Sound legit? Too legit? 

Instead of a list of Resolutions this year, I decided to try the One Little Word idea. 
So, I chose

I want to remember to soak in each day. 
Enjoy all that's happening. 
Instead of getting so caught up, that I wake up 6 months later

2014 is a BIG year. 
I'm getting married. 
I'm getting TWO sisters, and a brother (in July).
I'm celebrating one year at my great job. 
etcetera etcetera etcetera 
These things should be savored. 
and enjoyed.
