National Donut Day + #PhotoADayJune

by Jenn (eating bender) on June 1, 2012

Last week it was National Wine Day. Now we’ve got donuts on the brain.

Thanks to Meghann for alerting me to this very important holiday. You see, there is a certain someone who likes donuts, and he likes them quite a lot. I’m not going to name any names but…

You get the picture. 😉 Since Mr. Donut is taking his third and final CFA test tomorrow, I thought what better way to prepare him than with a nice sugar rush as soon as he arrived home today. His and hers: cake donut with chocolate frosting for him, chocolate glazed for me. (You didn’t think Mr. Donut was the only one who was celebrating the holiday, did you?)

In just a few hours, he will be in bed with visions of CFA equations dancing in his head.

Until then, we feast on chocolate.

A post with real food to come tomorrow, I promise.

Last but not least, who’s joining in for #PhotoADayJune?

I kicked things off with “morning” today. It was cloudy here in Chicago.

#PhotoADayMay was a lot of fun, too. I’ve added the collage to my Photos page.

Let me know if you’re planning to join in and where you are posting! Find me on Instagram.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Any exciting plans?

We’re planning a fiesta after Bobby’s test. Wish him luck! He’s been studying practically every night since February, and I’m already very proud of him.

Best of luck, Bobby! With all of that studying, such a supportive wife and a power meal like that, you’re sure to ace for exam! And I would say that donuts, especially on this holiday, can surely be considered real food. :)

Haha – thank you, Karla! I think you’re right on those donuts – and I have a good feeling about his exam, too! :)

Good luck to Bobby on his exam!! I’m sure he’s going to do great; he’s such a hard worker! I’m sure you’ll plan a great fiesta after he’s all done!

And I think this year i’ll try and work hard doing the photo a day…although I’m already behind on the 1st of the month. Hah!
