Sweets for My Sweets (and me too!)

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! This is a batch of homemade sticky buns that I made for all of my sweethearts this morning. I've been wanting to make these ever since I saw them on "Barefoot Contessa" a few weeks ago. And man were they good! Super easy too. If you want the recipe I can post it later for you.

Well my day has gone very well so far. I got flowers and a card from my DH and then he took the kids to the Indiana State Museum (a reward for my son doing well in school) and I was left at home alone to get started on a long awaited project...painting our bedroom. Painting is one of my favorite design things to do because you can totally change the look and feel of a room just by adding a different color of paint to the walls, and it doesn't cost much money. It's a big project though because I'm also painting the trim which was originally stained. It takes several coats of primer and paint to cover it up and I had to vacuum and wash it first. So I probably won't get to the fun part (the wall color) until tomorrow. But it will all be worth it for sure.

Anyway, this might be the only post I get to do this weekend so I wanted to take time to say Hi and Happy V-Day! Mary

So, how's your project going? Wish I had your ambition to get some painting done around here.
Would love to have the recipe for the rolls when you have time. They look yummy!
