so, i read about this new ginormous donut that the doughnut plant just launched over the weekend and knew i had to try it. it’s the week of thanksgiving and my diet has pretty much consisted entirely of sugar in celebration of the holiday. so it just seemed like the right next step, eating a donut the size of my face. they named it the ripple and the one we brought home was a berry parfait flavored, with blueberry, granola and raspberry. they say it’s a great alternative to having a pie at thanksgiving dinner since it’s supposed to feed several people, so i guess if you don’t like pie, here you go!!!
see the video and more photos below…
can’t ever lose me in a crowd! i’ll be the one in bright color, forever and ever!
conrad always gets so excited to try to help pay and swipe the card. he’s just as confused as i am with this whole new “insert chip” thing. it seriously drives me nuts, especially that loud rude beeping sound that it makes when it wants you to remove your card.
you’ll see in the video, but samson was so excited about this donut and fell asleep before we got there. i tried to wake him because i promised him i’d do so before he fell asleep, but he wouldn’t wake up! we saved the rest of the big donut though to eat at home with both eleanor and samson later that day because that’s more fun anyway.
this is conrad pretending to sleep after he pointed at his sleeping brother in the stroller! he is such a ham.
honestly it’s a super fun donut because it’s just so big and colorful and different, but i don’t think it’s life changing or anything like that (and i do believe things like donuts have the potential to be life changing. it’s true.) definitely fun to try if you’re in chelsea and have a group with you. regardless, the donut plant is still one of my favorite spots in the city for a treat. the creme brûlée donut is just perfection.
hope everyone has a happy thanksgiving tomorrow!!! we’re staying here in the city for the holiday and my sister and her husband are joining us for dinner and i’m so excited. josh has cooked us a turkey every year since our first year of marriage and he has seriously perfected it. i’m especially excited for my huge plate of left overs the day after because somehow it always tastes even better than the day before!
this lipstick in the color pink me up
conrad’s panda coat is old (it once was eleanor’s and then samson’s), but the new updated pattern is blue with penguins!
