Make Muffins.

Life decisions.

They suck.

Sometimes, I wish I could just have someone tell me what to do, or tell me what I should do.

It’s as though I make a decision and then the other person living inside of my head says “no, Chelsy, you don’t want that,” or “hey, Chels, what about this?”

Seriously, what is up with the conflict?

I need someone like Alfred, Batman’s confidant, telling me what to do and when to do it.

Will you come make my life decisions?

See you tomorrow 😉

One thing I am always sure of…food.

When I want a muffin,


I make myself one…or some.


There is nothing better than a hot cinnamon roll fresh out of the oven.

These are a total play on cinnamon rolls…in muffin form.


Because that’s how I roll.


No pun intended.


When I was younger, the occasional Sunday morning consisted of the one, the only…


Pillsbury Grand Cinnamon Rolls.


The smell of sweet cinnamon wafting through the kitchen and to my bedroom was enough to drag me out of bed.


I’m pretty sure the cream cheese glaze barely made it on top of the actual cinnamon rolls…


more of like all over my hands and in my mouth.


Those were the days.
