[Summer Bucket List] Sweet Treats

Friday, June 20, 2014

Hello! And welcome to the first day of our Summer Bucket List Link Up. If you know me at all, my first topic will not surprise you.

Today I'm going to talk about the sweet treats that we've been enjoying this summer!

If you follow me on Instagram {@lizbir}, you might have already seen a sneak peak of what I'm going to share.


A couple weekends ago, Seth, Mason, and I met our friends Lauren and Seth and their son, Logan, for breakfast at a local donut shop. It's a newer donut shop, one of those specialty donut shops. Sure, the donuts might have cost a bit more than your typical donut, but they also tasted a hell of a lot better than your run of the mill, everyday donut.

(please ignore my reflection in the window)

They also have milk on tap. ON TAP. Yes, like beer. They have regular milk, chocolate milk, and strawberry milk and they pour it for you, straight from the tap. It's amazing. So genius.

We had the hardest time deciding which donuts we wanted to get. There were SO MANY choices and they all looked delicious. Eventually I decided on the maple bacon donut and Seth got the Boston creme donut. (Boston creme pie is his FAVORITE cake (pie?) so this was no surprise). We got Mason a cake batter donut and then went to pay and found out we got a free donut for him also since he is under 12. Mario or Luigi? We chose Mario. Score.

We took our donuts outside and enjoyed every second of eating them.

maple bacon // Boston creme

He got his very own chocolate milk....and drank it down to the last drop.

After we sat down to eat our donuts, I noticed that Lauren had gotten a yummy looking coffee. I asked her what it was and she said she had gotten an iced coffee with chocolate milk. Half coffee, half chocolate milk, over ice. Sounded like a mocha to me so I went in and got myself one. It was a little pricey at $4.50 but no more than a Starbucks mocha and way more delicious!

If you have a Donut Bar near you, I highly recommend it. The donuts were pure deliciousness.

We will be back!

Don't forget to link up with us again next week, sharing the fun activities that you've been up to this summer!

  2. The South Bay needs a specialty donut shop STAT! Those are so cute and look so yummy!

  3. Oh my gosh, those look amazing! And now I'm hungry...
    I so wish we had one of those near us! Time to go to google maps and figure out the nearest donut shop!

  4. Wow that sounds amazing! I want chocolate milk and a donut! And you were upset you didn't have a Dunkin donuts... I'd take this place any day!

  5. Holy doughnut! I think I may have just gained 5 pounds reading your post.

  6. Holy yum yum yum. These look amazing! I'm drooling all over my keyboard. And I love the idea of doing half ice coffee, half chocolate milk. That needs a name so I can start ordering it asap.

  7. Dude. Now I want chocolate milk! Actually I took a drink of my drink and thought it was chocolate milk, blah. Second time I did that while reading about a drink. Half chocolate milk, half iced coffee! Yum! Clever. Love that the milk is on tap. Aria hasn't had much chocolate milk, I think once...I've been trying to save it for the holidays...like hot cocoa, but cold ha. Works in my mind at least!
