The Highlights

Dare I say that everyone is starting to feel better and on the mend at my house??  I think it's true and the warm weather has definitely helped.  We've enjoyed several evening strolls around the neighborhood, backyard fun and not having to bundle up.  I'm sure it'll get cold again, but this week was a good one.  We are all looking forward to watching the Super Bowl and the commercials and eating our last round of game day food until Fall.

The best parts of my week were:
1. Making pink Cinnamon rolls for my family!  Everyone LOVED them and they turned out so cute :)  You should give them a try because my recipe is really easy!!

 2. I've been on the lookout for some gold monogrammed jewelry and finally took the plunge.  Marleylilly had some great options and they arrived this week - I did my monogram on the necklace and my daughter's on my bracelet.  I'd been wanting a piece of jewelry with her monogram on it and I LOVE it!

 3. I'm working on getting our house decorated for Valentine's Day.  It has been a lot of fun to pull out all of my decorations and find the perfect spot for them.  My mantle is coming along nicely and I'm hoping to get a few more garlands made.  I'll do a DIY post next week on the garlands.

4. We got to take a quick trip down to the Mississippi coast last weekend and the weather was lovely, I got to try beignets for the first time and we soaked up the sunshine.  It's pretty nice to live just 2.5 hours from the ocean for the first time in our lives :)

5. I have discovered a new favorite mac & cheese.  It's Kraft Deluxe - the sharp cheddar, original and four cheese are delicious.  I love the traditional noodles, it's an easy lunch and it's just delicious for boxed mac & cheese.  Trust me!!

Hope you have a great weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.


  1. Those jewelry pieces look so pretty!! I'll also take some of those gorgeous looking cinnamon rolls! Thanks so much for linking up!

  2. Those cinnamon rolls look soo good and I love that they're pink! Love the jewelry and I can't wait to see your garland tutorial!

    I can't believe that's your first time trying beignets! I live in Virginia but my dad has gone to New Orleans several times for business and when I was living at home he brought back beignet mix from Cafe Du Monde. So good! Glad y'all are feeling better, hope you have a great weekend!

  3. SO many good things about this post! First: so glad you all are feeling better! We've been sick off and on in our house for weeks, it seems - and I am over it!!! Second: those cinnamon rolls are darling and look delish. I will definitely be trying them. Thanks for sharing:) The jewelry that you ordered is perfect. I have a gold bar bracelet with my son's name on it, and it is my absolute favorite piece of jewelry in the world, aside from my wedding/engagement rings. And finally: YAY for trying beignets! Aren't they amazing? Dangerous for sure as you can eat so many without even thinking about it!!!:)

  4. Your house looks soo nice! And I love your jewelry! What a great week :) We are headed to Austin for the first time this weekend - VERY excited for a mini getaway!

  5. Your mantle is gorgeous!! Isn't it fun decorating the new houses for all of the 'first' holidays?! And mmm, beignets. What I would give for one of those right now! Yum! Happy Friday :)

  6. Love the mantle! The cinnamon rolls are also super cute, & look delicious!

  7. I love the mantle and all of your decorations! I love the idea of Olive's monogram on a bracelet. I always wanted an "O" on a bracelet, but I think I'm liking the monogram better!

  8. Your pom pom garland is cute! I love a good box of mac n' cheese. That one looks yummy!

  9. Those pink cinnamon rolls looks so yummy! And I'd love to have something with Kane's name or monogram on it--what you picked out is precious!

    Thanks for linking up with us:)
