Saturday Things.

1. My husband went to the store to do our weekly grocery shopping. I made the list very specific. He’s been gone 1 1/2+ hours and I’ve received 4 calls thus far. Oh, and he took our daughter too.

He’s a saint.

2. Are 4 desserts too many to make in a 24 hour period? My thighs are concerned.

3. We moved exactly 1 month ago  today to Portland. It’s rainy and gloomy 94% of the time exactly.  Oh the trauma my hair has to put up with. The horror! 

4. Ok, make that 5 phone calls he’s made. “Do you want regular cucumbers or individually wrapped cucumbers?” What a guy!

5. I think I am related to Carrie Underwood. I’ll save that story for another time.

6.  I bought two of those mini Cinnabon rolls at the mall the other day. Now, I’m obsessed with cinnamon rolls and making a copy cat recipe. Mark my words, I WILL do it.

7. Let’s just say I will be doing a lot of eating this week.

8. My baby is going to be 3 in 2 1/2 weeks. Umm, did I miss something? Excuse me while I go cry myself to sleep.

9. I signed up to do a juice cleanse. I don’t think I realized at the time that a juice cleanse means no food. I may or may not survive. Just know that I love you all dearly.

Thank you for listening.

    Welcome to Portland! I grew up here, so I guess I’m used to the weather. But whenever I start getting sick of the grey and rain, I just think about all the crazy weather we DON’T have to deal with around here…tornados, hurricanes, floods, blizzards, horrible heat and humidity and bugs. That makes it worth it to me! 🙂

    I just discovered your blog a week or so ago and have been pinning like crazy! You have so many delicious recipes on here…and I have your whole wheat banana bread waffles prepped and ready to go for tomorrow morning. My kids are going to love me! 🙂 Can’t wait to hear more about your 4 desserts…your lemon creme brulee cheesecake bars have been screaming my name ever since you posted it!

  2. Rachel @ The Avid Appetite

    good luck on your cleanse! I don’t know if I could do it! And let’s do a happy dance for wonderful husbands, shall we? 🙂

    Your husband is a saint. If I sent mine to the store with a list of more than 3 things, it would be a disaster. Love this list. Made me giggle!

  4. Megan Pence

    My gut is concerned over all of the beer I consumed this weekend. At least we’re all not alone. We’re all fighting a battle of epic proportions on the food front I think. Solidarity sister!! haha

  5. Natalie @ Cooking for My Kids

    I love this list, especially the part about how many times your husband called from the grocery store. I think that we are living parallel lives. 🙂 Have a great week!

    My daughter turns 3 on Friday – I didn’t realize our kids were so close in age!! I’m kind of freaking out about it, too. How do they grow up so fast??

  7. Lauren at Keep It Sweet

    The amount of desserts coming out of my kitchen lately is not making my body happy… I don’t think I could ever do a juice cleanse but soon enough I might need it!

  8. Kim B.

    I just cut & pasted a juice cleanse to try so am VERY interested to hear about yours! (as well as your cinnamon roll recipe, can I say that in the same comment with the cleanse?!) ha ha

    Another vote for the link that Emily put in her comment for the ‘Clone of a Cinnabon’. They are TREMENDOUSLY delicious, and as close to the real thing as possible. If I recall correctly (because I haven’t made them since last winter and I am too lazy to check my cooking binder notes) I use a different frosting, because the one in the recipe is too sweet for my taste. I like it to be cream cheese.

    Hola! We moved to Seattle last year (from the East Coast). I hear you – the gloom is a tough adjustment. My baby is going to be 2 in 2 weeks and I am also freaking out. Glad I am not alone 😉

  11. honeywhatscooking

    aww. i love this. that’s so sweet he’s been gone for 1.5 hours with your kid, that’s 2 major brownie points, so you can feed him those 4 desserts. 🙂 I just made baked banana bread – what a disaster – too mushy and dense.

  12. Gina @ Running to the Kitchen

    I was just talking to someone about juice cleanses and saying how I’m pretty sure I’d be at the “I’m dying of starvation” point about 6 hours into it. Good luck!

  13. Laura

    We moved to Portland/Vancouver in May – it has been a big adjustment from our hometown (Phoenix)! Glad I stumbled onto your blog today… I’m really enjoying your posts 🙂 Welcome to town!

    What a great guy! Grocery shopping with kids is an experience in itself…And i’m curious too as to what juice cleanse you’re doing? I’ve been wondering about these things and have eaten more than my share of cinnabon’s too, so….I could use it also. Hope the groceries and family members return happily!

  15. Marilyn Brennan

    He’s a saint and you’re hilarious. Thank goodness for cell phones… Oh yeah, and your little Brookie is heaven-sent

  16. Emily

    Aww…it’s fun when husbands go to the store! I’ve seen a Cinnabon clone recipe floating around Pinterest. I think it uses a bread maker, but you could probably adapt it if you don’t have one!

  17. Marjory Betchkal

    How wonderful that he did the shopping for you and took Brooke with. Lucky you. I have to make a list if mine will go (more like begging) and must put quantities or he will only buy one. Also have to only write on one side of the paper, he will never see anything written in the right side of the column. Oh, and he will come back with peanuts and snacks that weren’t on the list.

  18. Chris @ The Keenan cookbook

    Sweet post. Thanks for sharing 🙂 ps can’t wait for you to recreate cinnabon rolls so you can share the recipe!

  19. Machel

    I can’t wait for you to copy cat the recipe! Every time I make them they never rise nice and tall and fluffy. Good luck and i can’t wait!
