Pillsbury Sweet Rolls Contest

The other day I received the most amazing package in the mail. It came from Pillsbury and the folks at MyBlogSpark.com. A plain brown box appeared on my doorstep. The children were quite excited. When we opened it--- Oh my goodness! It contained the most amazing delights!

First and foremost- at least if you're a 4 year old- it contained a plush, stuffed Pillsbury Doughboy. He even giggles when you poke him in the stomach or give him a hug. There were two amazing products by Orca- a beautiful blue spatula and a silcone pot holder. Two white dish cloths and a coupon for free Pillsbury Grands Sweet Rolls rounded out the package.

Would you like the opportunity to win a prize package of your own? Who can resist the idea of getting such a fun box of goodness in the mail? Leave a comment at the end of my post telling me your favorite Sunday morning memory. My favorite memory is of my husband cooking breakfast for all of us while I spent luxurious alone time reading in my room :-) Good husbands are worth their weight in gold- and he would have loved being able to put some of the easy rolls on the table with the bacon!

My Family

You hold me together :-)

By now I should've been broken
On the rocks arisin' life's ocean
Just another ship lost at sea
By now I should've been scattered
In the wind of my lonesome travels
Like a thousand dandelion seeds
And I should've come unraveled
At the seams like a well-worn sweater
But you hold me together

My hope should've been shattered
Like a bottle out behind some tavern
From a fight that you had no chance to win
My dream should've been ashes
Gone up in smoke like a book of matches
Tossed away and never gonna burn again
And I should've worn right through
Like an old cowboy's boot leather
But you hold me together

I feel your love surrounding me
Strong enough that I can believe
There won't ever be a storm that I can't weather
'Cause you hold me together
Together, yeah

I feel your love surrounding me
Strong enough that I can believe
There won't ever be a storm that I can't weather
No there'll never be a storm that I can't weather

I should've been long forgotten
Just a footnote down at the bottom
Of a page in the book of what could've beens
My heart should lie in pieces
On the ground like a goodbye letter
But you hold me together
