Tears in my eyes when I think about how yummy these are!!!!!!! TEARS IN MY EYES!

Day 21 of my 365 days of Pinterest ...this pin was called Monkey Bread .. its basically like cinnamon buns but so so SO much better!!  I can not believe how easy and unbelievably yummy these are!!!  

What You Will Need

  •  Butter
  •  Sugar
  •  Ground Cinnamon
    •  Sweetened, Condensed Milk (they call it the nectar of the south .. mmmmm)

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Add 1/2 teaspoon butter to muffin tins. Sprinkle in sugar and cinnamon.

Cut refrigerated biscuit dough into thirds. Place three into each muffin tin.

Top with 1/2 teaspoon butter. Sprinkle on more sugar and cinnamon.

Allow dough to rise, if applicable, or just go ahead and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.

Remove from oven and immediately drizzle plenty of sweetened condensed milk over the top of each one. Eat them all.  Do the 4 min workout Pin from Pinterest hence no need to feel guilty :)

365 Days of Pinterest Day 20 - Shimmer Flower Vase

Well I took a detour from my 365 Days of Pinterest "Testing one Pin a Day for a Year" and Ill tell you why.  Pinterest inspired me to buy a home ... not just any home .. A 200 year old Heritage Home!  I saw in this home so much potential, so much DIY!  I cant wait to move in in June and blog all the wild and crazy adventures.  I also sold my town house.   It sold in less then 24 hours with 4 bids and ended at $18,000 more then the asking price.  We spent one month completely renovating and staging on a shoestring budget.  I used so many tips and tricks from Pinterest for renovating, organizing beautifying and staging!  I will be sharing them soon.

SO NOWWWW without further ado back to some fun DIY's!  YAY!!

I found this pin when looking for a gift to give my real estate agent and mortgage brokers.  All extremely wonderful and inspirational women.

Sparkle Vase!!! oo la la .. nothing like sparkle ..

What you will need:
~ A cute vase (I bought my mini mason jar style vases from the dollar store .. so cute)
~ Flowers (I choose the ever delicate and gorgeous hydrangeas for my adult gifts and fun colorful Gerbera's I gave to my daughter and her friends for their high school talent show)
~ GLITTER!!!  Of course I used Martha Stewarts Hexagon Glitter from Michaels purchased with my 40% off coupon as the glitter is almost $30.00 for a 12 pack. worth it
~ ribbon. I used pretty shimmer ribbon for the Gerberas and rustic woven burlap ribbons for the shabby chic Hydrangeas

The rest is pretty self explanitory ..

I filled the vases half way and gifted them in a tiny brown bag .. very cute.

Wa laaa ... glitter and fresh flowers .. such a pretty happy gift.. and when you want a little extra magic you swirl the water in the vase around .. instant glitter globe effect!  makes me smile!
