My reality is just a little different. No ranch hands. No cattle. No reason to get up at 4:30 and make anything ... much less homemade Cinnamon rolls.
In my real life, I'm only required to cook for one other person on a daily basis and usually its only one meal a day (and sometimes less) and my love story would only take about two sentences, not a whole book (and it wouldn't be named "black heels and tractor wheels"... or even anything close to that).
When I told hubs I was feeling ambitious and hope to make homemade Cinnamon rolls he actually said, "Why?"
He was serious.
"Why? you have to admit, you can just go buy this. And they're delicious."
So I felt deflated and not so ambitious and kind of shelved the project.....

Which was probably a mistake.
He looked at me like I had lost my mind.
Then he reminded me that when his friends occasionally meet at our house before a big fishing trip, how irritable I am when they wake me up at 4:30 and I am not in the mood to cook for anyone Then he offered to make my dreams come true by getting up to make these Cinnamon rolls for him and his fishing buddies one morning.
Which I declined.
This is The Pioneer Woman's famous Cinnamon rolls recipe and in all honestly it looks so complex its taken me a long time to even attempt it and I wondered if I should even attempt it at all. But then Julie & Julia has inspired me anew to go put on pearls and get in the kitchen.

This is as far as I've gotten:
but... I've got a 12 month plan.
Actually. Other people have a 12 month plan that I have now stolen and call my own.
My 12 month plan now looks like this:
January: self imposed creative grocery shopping challenge; start this Bible study, read the Bible every day in 2012 and witness the weekday clock hit 7:00 a.m. from my desk.
February: Cinnamon Roll Challenge
What to join me with a monthly challenge of your own?
