Sometimes Saturday: 30 Closet Challenge Week 2 & 3 and The Easiest Cinnamon Rolls You've Ever Made

It's Sunday again. I know.  I was gone all day yesterday again, AND I have to put two weeks in since I missed the week before. Basketball. Again. :)

Okay, so first off, I have almost no clue which days are which. They're all out of order this time.
 (Left) Top: Yellow stripes, Walmart $3 on clerance. Undershirt - Downeast Basics white cap sleeve. Jeans: American Eagle boyfriend jeans. (I think this shirt is going to get a makeover in the near future because I think the sleeves are really funky.)

(Right) So the funny story about this outfit is I only wore it about ten minutes, but I loved it. I ended up not needing to wear a skirt, so I quickly donned jeans, a t-shirt and a comfy cardigan. But anyway, I wanted to include it. Have I mentioned how in love I am with lace lately? It's a problem. Seriously.
Tops: Undershirt - Downeast Basics Pink Long sleeve tee. Grey lace layering tee, Ola Mari bough on Ebay for $12. Black cardigan from Pamida clerance rack $5. Skirt: Downeast Basics black tiered maxi skirt.

(Left) Top: Undershirt - Downeast Basics (wow, I'm sensing a pattern here...) white lace cap sleeve tee. Sweater from Kmart Clearance rack $10. Jeans: American Eagle trouser jeans. 

(Right) Top: Undershirt - Downeast Basics white crew neck tee. Tunic Sweater - Pamida clerance rack $4. Jeans: Target Mossimo Boot cut jeans.
 I love layer tanks and shirts. Woot! (Left) Undershirt: Downeast Basics White long sleeve tee (Okay, I know, I know, but Downeast is the best for layering gear.) Downeast Basics pink lace trim tee, and green Old Navy v-neck tank. Jeans: Target Mossimo Boot Cut torn jeans. (I'm sure that's the official name...)
Undershirt: Downeast Basics black long sleeve tee. Grey bella band. Downeast Basics Lace Lover short sleeve tee. (And I can't remember what jeans I'm wearing...)

(Left) Undershirt: Downeast basics green long sleeve tee. Tank from Walmart clearance rack $3. (One of my favorite things to do in the winter is layer a comfy tank with a long sleeve shirt.) Jeans: Target Mossimo boot cut jeans.

(Right) Undershirt: Modbe pink tank. Remember how I LOVE lace...so I was going to make a tank top similar to this white one (I've tagged it on my Pinterest page if you follow), but then I found this one for $7 at Ross and figured it would be easier than making it! Old Navy Grey boyfriend cardigan. Jeans: Target mossimo boot cut jeans.

Yep. I really love this white tank, but in my defense, these days did not happen two days in a row like it seems here. :) Same pink and white layering, with a Pink cardigan from Aeropostale and the chevron skirt I got from Walmart. I'm still so in love with it too!

And now for a special treat ... Doesn't it look yummy??

So these will be the easiest cinnamon rolls you ever make. Take a bundt pan and put in 12 frozen Rhodes rolls. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over them and add a few pads of butter (I used like 4, I think). Cover with plastic wrap and let raise. (We had to drive an hour to Stake Conference for church this week, so it was perfect. I put everything in before we left and let them raise for 4 hours.) They were ready to pop in the oven when we got home. About 23 minutes later they came out perfectly. I turned the pan over on a plate and let it sit there so all the yummy, sugary syrup could run into the nooks and crannies of the rolls. Then I topped it with a powdered sugar icing. (1 cup powdered sugar, 1-2 TB of milk, and I used some almond extract because I'm pretty much as in love with that as I am with lace.)

I'm hoping that next will include a couple shirt makeovers. I've had them planned and, hold your breath, they include lace. :D

About Me!

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
