Workday Donut

Happy Saturday friends! Do you have anything fun planned for your day? Aside from a long run I have nothing on the agenda but I’m sure that will change. Have a great day ๐Ÿ™‚


My alarm went off and I was already counting down the minutes until 4pm. I felt like I slept amazing since I didn’t wake up at all so I think my alarm went off during the wrong part of my sleep cycle because I was so groggy. I eventually got up but being lazy in bed made me a little rushed for my day. For breakfast, I only had to time quickly scramble an egg and eat it before heading out the door. I brought a piece of pumpkin bread with me to enjoy but a coworker brought donuts in…so I snacked on that instead. A boring old glazed donut hit the spot!

Work went by pretty quickly. I got a lot done and am hoping to work on a project next weekend with minimal interruptions because of the holiday. After work, I ran to the grocery store to get what we need for the week. I’m glad I went because I have a feeling it’ll get crowded this weekend with everyone getting their Thanksgiving items.


Once I unpacked the groceries, and got hungry. Alex got home when I was finishing up so we chatted over chips and salsa. I could seriously eat them for an entire day and not be full.


For dinner, I heated up leftover rice and chicken fingers from earlier in the week. Sadly the chicken was a little dry after being reheated so I think they would be better suited in pasta with sauce to add some moisture. Lesson learned though! I dipped mine in barbecue sauce and Frank’s hot sauce.


After dinner I got comfy on the couch and read more of my book. I’m liking it so far and am curious what ends up happening. I’m about 1/3 or maybe a little more of the way through and will definitely share my thoughts once it’s completed! While I read, I sipped on some seltzer. If you are a seltzer dan then you have to look if your local grocery store sells Vintage. It’s the best that I have tried and there is no syrupy taste of the flavors.

One of Alex’s friends came over so we hung out with him for a bit. When he left we headed to bed

Question of the day: What’s your favorite type of donut?

  1. I have been working on menu planning from now through the day after Thanksgiving so I don’t have to go to the grocery store next week! I need to make one big trip soon and I’m trying to be strategic about it! Ha!

    I’m not a big donut lover but usually I choose blueberry or something with a lot of icing in the middle that I usually regret! ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. That’s so smart! I’m praying I don’t have to go to the store at all this week since I know it’ll be a zoo. The only thing left to buy is a bottle of wine for the hosts which I’ll grab after work on Wednesday.

      Don’t regret a donut! As long as you don’t eat an icing filled one every day then it’s all good Courtney. Life is about balance ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Yay for coworkers who bring in donuts!! I think y favorite type is the strawberry frosted with rainbow sprinkles from Dunkin’! I agree about going to the grocery store before the Thanksgiving rush. I need to go today or tomorrow and I’m not looking forward to it, haha! I have a feeling it’s going to be packed!


    1. I think he brings them every week because there are always donuts on Friday! Donuts with some sprinkles are delicious! Maybe try going Monday morning, most people will hopefully be at work and the produce should still be fresh for any Thanksgiving dishes you’re making.
