I Still Need a Donut

Yep, I'm the girl that just wrote a post about my cleaner eating habits and now I'm back to talking about donuts.

You guys, I can't keep looking at Dunkin Donuts out my window.  It's killing me.  For those of you who don't know, there is a brand new DD opening up across the street from my apartment.  The light up menus went up 2 nights ago which means it's almost ready.  I will probably be their first customer and I will consider it an honor.

In other news, yesterday seemed to just be a stupid day for a lot of people.  I saw lots of tweets and Facebook updates about just being annoyed or frustrated.  I felt the same way after reading a few emails at the end of my work day that were just dumb and incredibly frustrating.  But, then two things happened that helped me pull myself together:

1.  I got an email from an old employee of mine who was leaving our company as of yesterday.  It was the sweetest note and it reminded me that I love the people I work with (most days.)  Having daily contact with someone means you have a big impact on their life, whether you realize it or not.  He thanked me for being a positive energy.  His note was just what I needed to turn my mood around.

2.  Erin from Two Thirds Hazel tweeted something about the news last night and how horrifying it was sometimes.  I will agree that it almost always makes me mad/sad/frustrated.  I realized that I had the perfect solution for her and I think it's something everyone should have bookmarked on their computer.  Click here now and get your daily dose of happiness.  Share that link with others and spread the love.

Right before I went to sleep, I checked Instagram (duh) and my friend, Caroline, had posted this and I felt like it was the best way to describe a crappy day.


Now go aim for something awesome.

  1. I love that quote.

    Yesterday was a frustrating day all day. Today is already infinitely better. Yin and yang high and low!

    I NEED you to be the first customer.

  10. I can't believe I'm admitting this but I ate three donuts on Sunday. THREE. I've been trying to cut back on sweets, and was doing a good job...until I wasn't! haha One across the street would be disastrous for me! Love that quote you posted, I'm having one of those days today & it is so important to stay focused on the positive!

  12. a DD right across the street!? yeah..that's pretty dangerous. living near the food you love does greatly affect you. i have an addiction to panera bread and it's probably because of how close i live to it. i feel your pain!!
    and never knew huffington post had a good news section! that's amazing!

  14. I would die if a DD opened up across the street from my condo. I love their bagels, not much of a donut girl, but a bagel gets me every time.
