I will always love old fashioned donuts so much more than cupcakes

Wednesday, February 1

Dear Dunkin, 
I love you dearly. But you need to get the heck off the end of my block. I'm supposed to be finishing a  smoothie with kale in it or something right now. Instead I'm eating donuts and sliding around the house in my husband's socks like a pants-less Tom Cruise. It's not pretty. And by the way, neither is that new poster of your perfectly swirled hot chocolate. Take it down. 
Love, Me

Dunkin Donuts: a blessing and a curse.

Fresh cinamon doughnuts are the best on a cold winters night!

debbiecutieface.com said...

hah, well I definitely feel that way about cupcakes ;)

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

Feel free to send it over here to the UK. I don't have one anywhere near me...and I could really use a donut right about NOW!!

Roanna said...

yum! traditional dunkin donuts are the best, especially early in the morning! ...but since we don't have them here in italy, I've got a bakery up the street that makes the freshest (with just the right amount of sugar on top) I've ever had!

You are too cute! This post just totally made me smile :)

Ok, I have thought the same thing! I have always loved donuts more than cupcakes! They can be just as cute, and they are so much yummier. Maybe they just get a bad rap because they're fried.

Ash Louise said...

Haha, Love this girl!

Much to My Delight said...

We have a Dunkin' on our street too, but I've been pretty good about avoiding it. We have a much scarier poster than yours--it's a huge tuna salad sandwich on a bagel and it's a great deterrent for me.

Liz Brown said...

It might be dreadful and unhealthy and everything, but it makes a good picture and a cozy feeling. :)

Sliding around on hard floors with socks never gets old.

Andrea Grace said...

Haha! I love that its at the end of your block, heck a mama has to treat herself right?

LaynahRose said...

ugh, YUM.

SweetCaroline said...

love your blog so much. always makes my day! What Tom Cruise movie are you referring to? my mother told me about the one where he is home alon and lsiding around the house in his underwear, but she couldn't remember the name.

jessica said...

Haha, too cute! I'm the same way, I'll take a good ol' donut over cupcakes anytime.

Lovely Life said...

I love love donuts!! Ok, I love anything sweet. Those look delicious.

Gabriella said...

Hilarious article ! I also have a guilty pleasure that sells fast food on the same road as my office. Oh dear! I wish they would move far away. As for donuts - they are definitely in the top 5 of my fav desserts...

I always slide around in my husband's socks too! Haha :)

Adriana said...

Yes!! I prefer donuts too, they have just the right amount of sweetness.

Karin said...

Ahh Dunkin. One of the many things I miss about the East Coast! I have the same problem but with Starbucks right now!

Lauren {Stylized Existence} said...

bahahaha! they are so mean to put a hot chocolate poster up when they know it's your fave! :)

Jocee said...

i'm a cupcake gal, but i so feel you. even though i do competitive swimming year 'round, my parents want me to eat more vegetables and that sort of thing. but, every sunday at church, one of our sunday classes teachers bring delicious donuts for everyone to enjoy, and did i mention hot chocolate, too? yes, i die.
great photo! :))

Donuts and milk are the best!

Megan said...

Life is short. Enjoy your Dunkin Donut. There are many people in this world who do not live near a Dunkin and cannot even fathom the joy that one of their donuts imparts once it passes through the lips. (This is spoken by the woman who just ate a special Dunkin Valentine heart shaped filled custard donut for breakfast this morning and is in a very happy mood because of her good fortune).

I have the exact same problem with one just down the street. Across from Jenny Craig, of course. sigh*

Kate said...

Those donuts always torture me too. Especially the strawberry and chocolate frosted ones. And my husband is always bringing me home one every morning and wonders why I get mad. "Are you TRYING to make me a whale!?"

:)

Ana said...

haha I would like to forward this letter to my local cupcake shop too...they always get me!

Sara Marie said...

I miss Dunkin Donuts so much!!!! When ever you have the impulse to buy...ship those suckers to England for me! Thanks! xx

Perpetuity said...

umm blueberry cake dunkins are hard to resist for me! Kale green smoothie or doughnut...thats a toss up;) Are you doing the Kimberly Snyder smoothies?

Elise said...

When I lived in NYC, it seemed like there were more dunkins than Starbucks. Either way, both swirled me into their sugar addiction, and now I could really go for a chocolate doughnut.

Laurel Ann Walker said...

Sock sliding is the cure to all woes and blues. I mean it. :) There's nothing more awesome than zipping around the house being silly in husband's socks to cure a blah mood!

That sounds like the best day! Ever!!

athomewithbethany said...

I love old fashioned donuts too! Dunkin ones are great, but there's a grocery store in rural MN that sells donuts from which you will never recover. :) (I grew up there.)

In my opinion Krispy Kremes just need to disappear from the world.

Caitlin said...

sliding counts as exercise, right? I'm sure you also walk to Dunkin ;)

sidewalknarrative said...

Apparently, all it takes is a picture.

I'm off to find some donuts.

The best and worst part of the location of my apartment is the Dunkin Donuts that is approximately 30 seconds away by car. The people there may or may not recognize me...

cupcakes may be having their day with being "the cool" things to eat, but donuts have always had my heart too. i miss my favorite bakery. wish it wasn't over 1500 miles away.

bintheknow said...

Ha - yes, I am so with you! I love a good old fashioned donute so much. There is a donut coop really close to my hosue and I have made it my new Friday morning tradition to stop in before I go to the office - best way to start the day! Or finish the day, too!
Much love,
B

Haha, so adorable. I also have a donut place just a few blocks from my home! Not okay...

Ohhh the donut will always be my vice. I guess if you have to have one it might as well be tasty. :)

Jo(ke) said...

Men's socks are the best. I love wearing my fiance's socks. In regards to the donuts, they are hard to find here in Belgium (Dunkin or other). I've had the pleasure of eating Dunkin donuts once while in Germany. I will happily trade you with some Belgian waffels.

Maria said...

Ooh donuts, so good!

Hilliary@ Happily Ever Healthy said...

I think I love the frosting on a cupcake more then the actual cake!

LBVie Ashley said...

Hilarious, and so true! xoxo

Erin said...

Ha! Fuzzy socks are the best! AND donuts make them even better I'm sure! The blueberry cake-like ones are my fav:)

Jessica Wray said...

Elizabeth Benfield said...

LOL!!! i feel you. and dont ever let anyone tell you how bad those old fashioned donuts are for you ... you will never be able to look at yourself the same. i always thought they were better for me because they were pain and didnt have frosting all over ... NOT!

ha! i just said "not" like i did in the 7th grade :)

I'm so jealous! I love Dunkin. I wish we had one here in Utah!

sunnysideoflife said...

ooohhhh donuts. i feel sorry for you, i would gain eleventy-hundred pounds if i lived that close to dunkin. donuts are one of my downfalls. have you tried the apple spice donut? apple pie in a donut i tell you. APPLE PIE. see? this is why it's good that i live miles from everything.

Melanie Marie said...

I absolutely love your hardwood floors.

And it this pic using instagram? I love the focus/blur contrast.

Sarah said...

Ahh I know! They just put one right down the street from me as well! SO good, yet SO bad...

Omg, couldn't agree more. I was just having a conversation about donuts with my co-workers. We were hatching a plan to go to the doughnut vault before work one of these days (its a crazy insanely good donut place in these parts -chicago).

Meg said...

Donuts are like the new cupcake anyways.

Urban Nester said...

Haha with kale or something - I do this every morning except I usually end up just having a second coffee instead.

Good luck resisting :)

Thanks for sharing,
Casey

Cassi said...

We used to get the best breakfast donuts in high-school. Supposedly they were nutritious but they looked just like that. This post makes me want some sooooo badly!

libranlife2012 said...

Every time I walk into a Dunkin Donuts store, my heart literally starts humming with excitement. I don't know how anybody could resist, especially if you have one just down your street :) Your post is actually making me crave donuts now!

laptitegrecque said...

unfortunately Dunkin Donuts closed where I live like 5 years ago...I still crave their delicious all chocolate donuts!!!
But I prefer cupcakes...
