My delicious Pinterest fail - Crescent Breakfast Roll Ups

While searching through Pinterest, I found a great recipe that I added to my meal planning. We love breakfast for dinner and this recipe put a fun twist on our same old meal.

Pin from Organizer by Day : Breakfast Crescent Roll Ups
I followed the recipe for the most part.
She used a "Crescent Sheet", but I only had Crescent rolls.
I used a small rolling pin to try to bring together the perforations.

We made a Peacock Cake !

The boys and I decided that today, was as good as any to make a cake.
I offered several options. I thought it would be fun to try a cake roll, but they decided against it.

We didn't have a solid plan, but knew we wanted to have fun.
We used a Golden Yellow box cake mix and separated the mix into 3 bowls.
The boys chose colors, Blue, Pink, and Green.

Our Holiday so far ...

I wanted to give you an update on our holiday. I have been slacking in personal posts, so this will be the beginning of a lot of sharing to come.

CJ and Santa
1st, I want to update you on our "Want, Need, Wear, Read" Christmas.
The boys loved their Christmas. They grandparents stuck to the list we gave them, and honestly, we couldn't have been more pleased. The toys were minimal for our kids, as were the gift cards. Clothes and books were everywhere and no one whined or cried.
That makes for a happy Mama.

Darkiron N8 Headphones Headset with In line Mic #Headphones #ad

Disclosure: I received this product in order to facilitate an honest, unbiased review. All opinions regarding this product are my own.

We are a tech family. I'm sure you've guessed that by now. We have gaming systems, 
handheld devices and headphones galore. I can never seem to find a pair of headphones when I need them. It seems that they are eaten by my house (or my kids) when I need them.

I was excited to review these new "over the head" headphones. They looked like they would be gentle on my ears, since the amount of padding was beyond anything we currently have.

Renard Compression Socks #RenardCompressionSocks #ad

Disclosure: I received this product in order to facilitate an honest, unbiased  review. All opinions regarding this product are my own.

I need some assistance for my legs. I have a varicose vein that is quite unpleasant and hurts from time to time.

When I run, I always use some type of compression as well as tape.
This is essential for me.
When during my day to day life, wearing my running gear isn't always practical.

I've recently begun wearing Renard Compression Socks. I wear them under pants or even when I'm hanging out at home and need a little extra support.

I'm quite pleased with the compression it offers my calf area. The sock length is long enough to go all the way to my knee.

They have washed well and not shrunk. I have not run in them, but plan to soon.

The toe of the sock is a little long for my foot, but the reinforced heel and toe creates a comfortable feel.
