weekend things...

One of my new goals in life is to make my husbands days off special...especially the Saturdays that he has off...I ADORE having my husband home and I want to show him that through little special things that I plan or do for his days off...knowing Doug and knowing myself they will mostly be centered around food...one of my love languages. :)
This past Saturday I spied these yummy concoctions...and in true to me style I figured out how to make them easier. Yeast and I don't get along too well so I cheated on that part of the recipe and used pre-made biscuits instead. If you are woman enough to conquer yeast then you can use the original recipe found HERE.
Cinnamon Raisin Pull Apart Muffins

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
handful of golden raisins (optional)

Mix all of the above together.

Four pack of biscuits (shown above)
more flour, granulated sugar and cinnamon for dusting

Grease a non-stick muffin pan. I used 18 muffin tins. Cut individual biscuits into fours. Dust with a handful of sugar, bit of flour and lots of cinnamon. Place four biscuit pieces into the bottom of each muffin cup, top with a tablespoon of butter and sugar mixture. Top with four more biscuit pieces then top with more sugar mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 12-18 minutes. The sugars do great things in the oven.

Sure to make your Saturday feel special. And my huge order of fabric arrived...lots of purses and other fun things to be created here.
This will be one of the first purses to hit the shop...hopefully this week.
I thought this was too cute to pass up...not sure what it will become. :)
I also got these pears in the shop...hope to get more of them made soon. :)

We also started sleep training with Aaron with lots of success. We use a phenomenal book called Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child. It made a HUGE difference in our lives when we started it with Moses at four months. Before we started it he was waking up 10-12 times a night!!! We were ALL losing our minds...within 24 hours of starting this method Moses was only waking up twice a night...then soon only once. :) Anyway, we are starting it from the beginning with Aaron to avoid losing our minds (at least for that reason) this time around. We started on Friday and it has already had a huge impact on Aaron's sleep...much longer naps, much longer sleeping periods during the night and he is waking up later in the morning. :) On top of that a happy baby has become even more pleasant. :) I can't say enough good things about this book. :)

And, I want to hear some ways that you make your husband feel special?
I want to hear your ideas. :)

Happy day to you!

Yummy! I think I can do this one...I'm making your potato soup this afternoon....Sweet Jesus, I hope I don't burn my house down!

Let see things that I do to make my hubby's day special..hhhmmm..that would be go to different room...ha! Just kidding...even though he would like that, I'm sure...The thing he likes the most is to take a long nap on those days..so I try not to bug him during this time and allow him this luxury. Its kind of boring but in truth with our many small children and his crazy job he needs it.

Now this doesnt happen all the time..sometimes I will be honest that I steal that time for myself...Lets be real, its either that or insanity..maybe that is my true gift to him..."keeping it sane one day at a time!" Lots of Love!

Love your fabric... I got some of my fabric yesterday too, yummy :)

Things I do for my hubby,

-Try to keep up with the laundry/dishes/picking up
(I'm more of the slob and he is more of the neat freak)
-Make his lunch for him (which i rarely do, but maybe now that I'm home more I will do it for him)
-feed him :) he likes a good hot meal! but don't we all!

Thanks for making me think of my hubby, now I need to go do a load of laundry ;)

Oh lucky you with the new fabric! I think you could use the one with the cute animals to make lunch sacks, snack sacks or baby wipes holders.

We used the same sleep schedule technique with both kids and were most pleased. I am in shock when I hear of people who's kids are 3 and can't sleep. Not judging at all, I just can't imagine our family in that situation.

I guess you'd have to ask my hubby what I do that makes him happy. I try a lot, but don't know for sure. I do remember that he seemed to like that I made him a traditional Czech meal for Valentine's Day, oh and he liked the massage I scheduled for him while I prepared his favorite dinner too.

Cute fabrics :)

I like to leave notes for boyfriend to find. In his car, in his uniform pockets. Sometimes they are sweet & simple and sometimes they are funny inside jokes! I also leave cookies in his car for him to snack on during his commute :)
