Excellent cinnamon bun recipe

I stumbled upon this recipe a month or two ago when I had a craving for cinnamon buns and let me tell you, it's deadly!http://mama-jenn.blogspot.com/2009/05/super-sticky-cinnamon-buns-bread.htmlDon't say I didn't warn you! I'm making them either tomorrow or Monday, depending on which day my husband actually gets off of work. Mmmmm, cinnamon buns *drool* Read more [...]

Yay for grandparents!

Today, I got to leave the house, alone, and go get my hair done while my husband was working. No, I didn't leave the baby at home alone, at the mercy of the cats. My parents babysat for a few hours and I got pretty new hair. Ashlyn is 8 months old and this is only the second time that she's been left with someone other than me or my husband.

I put her name on the front and her birth date on the back.It wasn't expensive either, I only had to buy the blocks Read more [...]

Some non-baby-related links

I realized last night, during one of the umpteen times I was up with the baby, that although I called this blog "NOT Just Baby Brain", it's been pretty baby-centered. So to prove I can in fact think of non-baby stuff, here are some of my favourite places to go for a dose of celebrity gossip.TMZ - I hate to admit it, but I even PVR the tv show. Worse confession - my daughter adores it!Lainey Gossip - she's snarky, has great contacts, and she's Canadian. What's not to love?What Would Tyler Durden Do? Read more [...]
