King Cake Recipe, Blooms, and Texas Snow

Hello there! Do y'all like King Cake? My youngest son asked me to make a homemade king cake the other day. I wanted a quick and easy recipe, so I googled it and found this one that uses refrigerated crescent rolls and it was SO delicious! The filling is cream cheese and cinnamon. Yum! This was also the first time I made colored sugar with food coloring. I even brought out some Mardi Gras beads for my little photo shoot...

You can click HERE to see the recipe I used (I decided not to use any fruit filling. I liked it with just the cream cheese and cinnamon)  
Did y'all know we had snow the other day? Well, let me show you...

What? You can't see it? Here, come a little closer...

Ha ha! Y'all...you wouldn't believe how excited everyone got when we got this tiny bit of freezing rain the other day! I mean, the local news station broke in to "The Today Show" to bring us this "breaking news." Then at the ten o'clock news that night, they were showing  pics that viewers had sent in of the "snow." So funny! It lasted about 4 minutes before it all melted. :)

Okay, so the other day, I noticed several things blooming in the garden, so I thought I'd snap a few quick pics...

That stuff that looks like tall grass above is actually a blooming type of plant (kind of like society garlic) that will have tons of orange blooms soon. I never can remember what it's called. 

I just love all the pink blooms on the Razzleberry bushes!

A pretty rainbow knockout rose. We're getting ready to prune these, but I wanted to get a pic first.

This is so weird. See that pansy in the pot below? Can you see what else is blooming in there? Yep, it's my shamrock plant from last spring!

I pulled that shamrock plant up last fall when I replaced it with pansies. Somehow, despite pulling out all the roots, the determined little shamrock made a reappearance. :)

This is a shrimp plant...

Even my bridal wreath is blooming already.

This is my pink jasmine vine, which confused me when I purchased it because only the blooms are pink, when they open, they're white. 

It's just bursting at the seams with blooms!

More razzleberry bushes...

One more thing...Alimi Ballard put this on Instagram the other day and it made me laugh...


I'm working on the subway tile reveal post with lots of pretty pics and should have that up mid week. Then hopefully, I'll have the full tutorial up at the end of this week as well. Hope y'all have a great day!
