Every week as Friday rolls around, I can feel the excitement building for the weekend. Even if we have nothing planned to do, just knowing that I'll soon be able to sit around and relax with my family brings an extra little joy to my day.
My husband and I take turns getting up with the kids in the morning and letting the other person sleep in (such a luxury!) and one of my favorite things to do to make my early day special is to make a fun breakfast. During the week we don't do much more than the typical stuff like cereal, fruit and toast and with my husband rushing off for work it isn't like we sit down and enjoy any time together anyway.
So, when I heard that Pillsbury was promoting their efforts to recapture Sunday mornings as a time to reconnect with family, I knew we couldn't pass up having our own My Sweet Sunday Moment.
When a Pillsbury Doughboy Giggle Doll, blue silicon spatula, blue silicon pot holder, dishcloths and a coupon for Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls arrived, it made waiting for the weekend a little harder than normal. Both Big Sister E and Little Sister B were enamored with the Doughboy Doll and proceeded to carry him around and poke him in the stomach to make him giggle over and over and over again.
Their joy and nonstop laughter over the Doughboy was its own sweet moment, but then Sunday rolled around and it was time to enjoy some family time together with our delicious Pillsbury Grands! Cinnamon Rolls.
When it comes to convenience, nothing beats the place-and-bake ease of Pillsbury. Simply open the container, break the rolls apart and set them into the greased pan.
After smelling the mouth-watering aroma while they baked, I took the Grands! Cinnamon Rolls out, spread on the icing and stood back to admire the goodness that awaited.
Mmmmmm, it was like we were right there at Cinnabon. The icing melted, the cinnamon was sweet and plentiful and the rolls were light and delicious. Even better? Having us all hanging out at table together, smiles all around as we ate these tasty treats and chatted about how we would like to spend the rest of the day as a family. How could I not love a Sunday morning like that?
Right now Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls is making it even more fun to celebrate Sundays with a great promotion and giveaway event. Having teamed up with actress Melissa Joan Hart, one lucky family will win a seven-day "week of Sundays" vacation to California that includes a visit to area theme parks and Melissa's sweet shop, SweetHarts.
