I went shopping with my mom yesterday, while leaving the kids behind with my dad. It was a win win all around. I’m slightly happy that Ikea is an hour away because if it was closer, I might have a serious problem. Their store is so much fun to walk around and don’t get me started on the shopping carts. When I do take the kids… and there isn’t anyone in the way, I might go sideways on purpose. We skipped the carts this time since we didn’t plan on getting too many small things. My goal… a new prop cabinet. I’ve basically run out of storage and needed a new option. I’m ridiculously excited to have it set up and get to start filling it!

And while we’re on the Ikea topic. I’d like to put in a request to the powers that be to make an Ikea kitchen happen in my home asap. I’m in love. On past visits (few and far between since it’s so far away…eh hem…New Hampshire really needs one) I never really stopped to check out the kitchens because I was distracted or had the kids with me. This time… no distractions! And I’m basically going to be obsessed with a new kitchen from here on out. I should probably start playing the lottery to make that happen…

Moving right along to Thanksgiving awesomeness…

These rolls. OMG. My kids LOVED them… as did I! Nearly straight from the oven, with a slathering of butter (or honey if you prefer) – amazing! They’re just as good plain and beyond hard to resist.

They need to happen in your kitchen asap. They’re super soft and tender. Perfect homemade pull apart clover rolls with a fun seasonal pumpkin twist.

Add these to your Thanksgiving menu!
