Yummy Cinnamon Rolls

Justin and I went to Midland, Texas on Saturday and stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. I was speaking to Delilah SAturday night and she said, "Enjoy the cinnamon rolls." I had totally forgotten that Holiday Inn Express was famous for their cinnamon rolls on their "complimentary" breakfast bar. I went to bed dreaming of cinnamon rolls and told myself to wake up before 9:30 so that I could run downstairs and get some. I promptly got up at 9am on Sunday and was downstairs by 9:15. Guess what...there were no cinnamon rolls to be found. Just the empty spot where they should be. I went to the front desk and asked the girl if there were any more rolls. She told me she would ask the hostess. She came back out and said that the hostess didn't want to put anymore out b/c it was so close to 9:30. I asked her to go back in the room and please ask the hostess to put more out. It's not 9:30 yet and people are still filtering in for breakfast. The hostess came out and said, "You wanted to talk to me?" I explained the situation again and she said that she didn't want to put any out b/c if I only ate 1 then she would have to throw the others away and she didn't want to do that. I asked her again to please put some out and she turned away without saying anything. She then came out with the cinnamon rolls and I said thanks so much. She didn't say a word to me!!!!

I stayed calm the entire time and used the word please multiple times. The whole time I wanted to scream out, "I need cinnamon rolls." I'm glad a kept my cool! Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that a saw the lady throw out like 25 strips of bacon. I know that costs more than some cinnamon rolls.

You should have told her that you were pregnant. Pregnant ladies usually get the uber treatment :) Though it sounds like this girl might have been rude to you either way.

If you're still in the baking mood (and all your friends aren't fat yet), you should try out the clone of a cinnabon recipe. Sooooooooo good!

Oh that reminds me of a story when I was pregnant. I HAD to have taco bell so I drove there ordered my food and was so excited to eat it only to find out that when I pulled up to pay, I had no wallet! The lady was like....SORRY and shut the window! I got so upset, not because she would not just give me the food but because she was just sooo rude! I drove home in tears, soooooo upset that someone could be so rude to me when I was 8 months pregnant!

I sure hope once she set the whole basket out, you wrapped them all in some napkins and stuffed them in your purse for later.

Also, I've made the copycat version of the cinnabons w/ a breadmaker recipe and they are AWESOME!
