donut day!

tuesday night
i got to celebrate my dear friend's
soon to be delivered baby girl...
as everyone headed to their cars at 9pm
i was stunned:
i thought we were celebrating!
thankfully my friend susan
is a little kooky, too
& so off we went
in search of sugary treats...

we ended up going to a great little waffle place
(i'll share later)
as we headed home i remembered
voodoo doughnuts had opened downtown
& so we went to see
where all those doughnuts were living...

susan spotted the shop
(20 east broadway, for curious eugenies)
& i was happy to know where it was...
& then i looked closer
& i saw it through the window
like a lovely lovely friend
saying 'come on in & see me'

& so we did...

after the posing
we couldn't insult the doughnuts by
not taking some home...
so we made our selections...

for miss m
Grape Ape
Raised yeast doughnut with vanilla frosting, grape dust and lavender sprinkles!

for Q
Marshall Matters
Plain cake doughnut with vanilla frosting and mini M&M’s!

(get it? eminem?)

& for brian
Bacon Maple Bar
Raised yeast doughnut with maple frosting and bacon on top!

then we headed out into the rain
eager to get home before midnight
when our converse would turn into stilettos (ouch!)...

i was full of other yummy stuff
so i didn't even think about getting one for myself that night...
but wednesday morning i was thinking about...

Captain my Captain
Raised yeast doughnut with vanilla frosting and Captain Crunch!

thankfully tomorrow is national doughnut day!
& so i will have to fulfill my civic duty...

if you're in eugene
(& civic & sugar minded)
& want to celebrate in the afternoon
try voodoo
(their hours are 2pm-2am...love that :)

if you're more of a morning carb fan
go for
holy donuts
(for yummy pics check my post)

& if you live someplace that's not eugene
find a local doughnut place
grab a friend
& party down!

all dunkin donuts nationwide
are giving a free doughnut
with the purchase of any drink...

have fun!
you won't believe you ate the hole thing...
(couldn't resist :)

I keep checking out the voodoo...but they hadn't opened yet. Thanks for the updates. I love the clock picture by the way all of those raindrops are annoying but they make for a pretty picture!

so fun girl.
Donuts do not agree with me, so next time you can eat one in my honor. =)
