Sweet Memories (Literally)

July 16, 2015·

I don’t have a superb memory. I remember things here and there, but my memories have faded a lot over the years. I have friends who can remember every little last detail about their lives from childhood ’til now… I am not one of those people.

But, I remember the important stuff. As a kid, I remember going to get breakfast with my dad before school. Or watching Saturday morning cartoons with my parents on the couch. And I remember the times where my parents would take me for ice cream, or a donut, or a special treat… and I loved those times. I love those memories. I look back on them and smile and cherish them.

I love that I’m now able to make those same memories with my little family – with John and Lilly.

Every so often, we’ll get up on a Saturday morning and head to our favorite donut shop – Krispy Kreme – to get a delicious hot now donut. When that “hot now” sign is on… ALL BETS ARE OFF, people.

This past weekend, we headed there as a family because Krispy Kreme happens to be celebrating their 78th birthday! And, a birthday celebration wouldn’t be complete without special birthday donuts! They introduced two special donuts for the occasion… a birthday cake batter donut (uhm, yes please!) and a brownie batter donut (delish). They also introduced a delicious birthday cake chiller – like a yummy birthday cake frozen drink! Mmmm. Mmmmm. Mmmm.

Since we were there, we figured we’d pick up a dozen. You know, for friends and family. 🙂

Lilly LOVED watching the donuts get made. Her eyes were so big and she just kept smiling and saying, “A DONUT!! A DONUT!!”

And, of course, we had to have a treat while we were there.

BTW: Yes, I am fully aware that donuts do not fit into any sort of fitness plan or weight loss plan… annnnd they’re #notorganic, but oh. so. delicious and oh. so. worth it. It’s all about moderation! Plus, life is TOO SHORT to not enjoy some Krispy Kreme every now and again. Am I right?!

Lilly was a HUGE fan of her donut. The birthday cake batter donut? AH-MAZING. So good. Lilly may have been bouncing off the walls from the sugar rush the rest of the morning… but it was such a fun treat and I loved making these memories with my family. Krispy Kreme (7) Krispy Kreme (5)

What about you? What kinds of memories do you have as a kid? Do you have sweet treat memories? Are you a Krispy Kreme fan like me??
