I bake a lot, but this was my first attempt at cinnamon rolls. Good. Really good, but not quite perfection...so I'll keep trying. I used to have a fear of yeast. Lame as that may sound, I simply didn't like the idea of using an ingredient that I could 'kill' if I messed up and got the water too hot. I just didn't need that kind of trouble! But, since I'm over that, I decided to use yeast to create one of life's finest treats. Ah, cinnamon rolls.
Truth be told, this isn't the only new thing I've been baking lately. You see, these 'buns in the oven' were actually inspired by something just a little different, but of the same name.
Nate and I are so excited to share with you that we are expecting a little one in December! I'm almost ten weeks. The journey to get to this point was a lot more difficult and invasive than I ever imagined it would be. Lots of medications, experimenting, nightly injections, ultrasounds and blood draws every few days, failed attempts...it's been a lot. But through the last year and a half of it we both have really learned about new aspects of faith and divine timing. It has been an amazing, challenging and blessed journey.
Just getting to this point feels like a huge success. Oh, and we're SO excited that there's just one little 'bun' baking in there, because this time around there was a possibility of three!
So far no throwing up, but lots of all day nausea and just feeling totally exhausted. 8:30 is my new favorite bed time! But it's those miserable symptoms that our little 'bun' is 'rising' and growing. So I say bring it on exhaustion and nausea. I can handle you, even if it's for nine whole months. Our sweet treat at the end of all of this will be SO, so worth it!
Oh, and the cinnamon roll recipe is on Sweet Sista.
