Riley recently informed me that she's never had a donut. I almost believed her, but then realized that week before we had apple donuts at the apple orchard. She then made the clarification that she'd never had a donut with icing on it. She didn't have to twist my arm very hard before I agreed to treat her to donuts at a donut shop. It would have been easy to pick something up at the grocery store, but donut shops seem to be popping up all around town so it seemed like a good excuse to check one of them out.
I selected Glam Doll Donuts after getting some recommendations from co-workers. I drove down Lake Street to get there and had a funny moment on the way with Riley. As we were stopped at a red light, Riley excitedly exclaimed "there's a Halloween costume store!" I looked over to see her looking at a lingerie store... and then I noticed a bondage store a couple doors down. Haha, uh yeah... costume store.
Eventually, we got to the donut shop, and picked out our selections. Riley wanted vanilla icing with sprinkles and I settled for the salted caramel and chocolate.
Riley ate about half and declared that it was just too sweet. I ate all of mine, but would totally agree. Good donuts, but just too much icing for these girls.
Afterwards, as we walked back to the car I pointed out to Riley how I used to work at Christos across the street. I went down a little memory lane in my own head remembering all the times I would go out for drinks across the street after work with my co-workers. Boy, life has changed.
Half a donut may have been more than enough sugar for this kid...
