The weekend was productive but not super exciting. We mini-putted, I cleaned, painted and watched the chick flicks “Bride Wars” and “Confessions of a Shopaholic“. I’m not really a “chick flick” kinda gal, but I was in the mood for fluff. But both made me wonder why there are so many movies, books and TV shows that represent only one kind of woman-The New Yorker who is fabulously wealthy, very pretentious, fashion and shoe obsessed and who power lunches and power walks around central park. Seriously! Go into any bookstore and look at the chick lit section and more than half feature this stereotype. Where is the diversity? Where are the movies with women whose lives you can relate to? They don’t have to be serious type of films, but just a tad more realistic. Anyways, on Sunday, I also made cinnamon buns. And not just any cinnamon buns but MONSTER ones! Just like my earlier braided bread, these babies came out huge!:
But they smelled and tasted awesome, so its all good! I love cherries so I crammed some in there too:
Wish you guys could taste them! The weekend was humid as hell and I felt pretty tired, but having one of these to eat during the week instead of the nasty cafeteria food, inspired me to get off my ass and start baking!
