Resurrection Rolls

Today I have a bonus post for you! All week I’ve talked about how much we love Easter! I couldn’t let the celebration come and go without sharing this fun activity with you all! This is something my kids look forward to every year, and it is really a great picture of the true meaning of Easter! They are SO easy to make! So let’s get started…first you gather your ingredients, crescent rolls, marshmallows, butter, cinnamon and sugar!  I like to have everything all set up before my kids wake up so we don’t waste any time!

I’ve been SO excited to write this post and share one of my favorite things with you! So I won’t wait one more second to introduce you to my favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Smoothie! I have told you before that I am a creature of habit. I adore mornings. I wake up, workout, clean up, then eat breakfast!  Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day because I get to eat one of these and drink this Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Smoothie.
