awkward & awesome ~ krispy kreme edition

Ok, I promise that I will soon post pictures from the real camera, as this post and the last post are iphone photos. Anyway, we went to Krispy Kreme the other day and whatdoyouknow?! They're making fresh donuts. I'm sorry if you've never had a few-minutes-off-the conveyer-belt-krispy-kreme. They're beyond delicous. (Also, you must always wear the hats. It's mandatory.)


• You know you've read The Hobbit recently when your kitten's names are Sting, Fili, Kili, and Smaug. And your sister's two (short-term) frog pets were named Bifur and Bombur.

• That there's a certain chicken that always hangs out with the cats. Every morning when I go out to do chores...there's that chicken, among the cats, following me to eat.

• Today Ad says (after eating donuts from the said Krispy Kreme trip), "I know what I'm having for lunch! A salad. Come to me leafy greens!"

• Getting a free facial treatment from the steam of the hot water while doing dishes.;)

• Why is it always that when you took 2 mintutes to get ready and have no makeup on that you seen people you know?


• Getting family pictures taken of the 5 of us by Blue Lily.

• A smoothie made with almond milk and banana! I plan on sharing the recipie soon. See it here.

• That there are only 116 days til CHRISTMAS!!! See here.

• Bear in the Big Blue House on mom's phone during car rides for a certain baby sister who is not partial to her car seat.

• Mail! Letters from pen-pals and over-the-summer letters to keep in touch with friends who live nearby. Seriously. Snail-mail is just the best.


Catch ya later. Happy Friday. xo


  1. Ohhh! Me and my family used to go to Krispy Kreme for fresh-off-the-conveyer-belt doughnuts when we lived in WA! But now that we're in OH, that is no longer :,( I envy you!

    I checked out the Blue Lily website, and their photography looks amazing! Lucky you getting to be photographed by them :)


  2. amen to that last awkward. EVER SINGLE TIME, I don't take time to do my makeup or hair before I go out, I run into somebody I know. (and usually it's people I don't see very often. #soawkward :P)
    and it's been ages since I've had a Krispy Kreme donut. I am totally jealous.

  3. Fun post, Haley! I just "awwwwwww-ed" out loud when I saw the picture of you and Charlotte with the hats! So adorbs!! Oh, and I can totally relate to your awkwards! :)

  4. I love your blog and your post! :D Very positive photos, haha. Donuts aren't popular in my country, unfortunately! ;p
