Friday Favorites – Donuts *

So if you’ve not yet noticed. . . I’m obsessed with donuts. I frequently just search the word Donut on Pinterest to creep on all of the amazing pictures. It’s like when I hear the term “Food Porn” . . . My brain: Donuts – Every. Single. Time. -Don’t even care. They are just incredibly pretty. I even have a dedicated Donut Pinterest board. Don’t believe me? Just check it out for yourselves.

I’ve even had the personal dream of owning my own Donut Shop. I’m completely incapable of not burning garlic bread, yet I feel that donuts could possibly be my calling. #Right. But seriously, I have an entire business plan worked out in my head (and half on paper). I just have to figure out how it is you make a donut. Oh, and I want the crazy wild donuts too. . . like the Donut Bar or Voodoo Donuts. I’m not kidding! Nothing like this exists in Detroit and I swear It could very well be my next dream come true. Unfortunately funding doesn’t grow on trees and like I said, I don’t even know how to make a donut, let alone like 25 different flavors. . . regardless, in honor of my obsession and Friday Favorites I’m sharing with you a few of my favorite Donut pics, along with recipes!

1. (Gluten Free) Mini Cake Donuts –86Lemons

2. Peach Donuts Glazed With White Chocolate & Pistachios – Veggie-Wedgie

3. Strawberry Frosted Donuts – Sally’s Baking Obsession

4.  Coconut Lime Donuts – On Sugar Mountain

5. Cinnabon Donuts – Something Swanky

6.Glazed Baked Red Velvet Donuts –Macaroni & Cheesecake

7. Blueberry Lemon Glazed Donuts – Country Cleaver

8. Chocolate Donuts With Blood Orange Glaze – Heather Christo

9. Cinnamon Brown Sugar Donuts – Little Miss Momma

10. Strawberry Buttermilk Mini Donuts – Hungry Girl Por Vida

I seriously need to try just ONE of these recipes. I think I’ll make it a goal for this week! #DonutDetermination. I can’t get enough. . . . YUM!

What’s your favorite donut? Have you ever tried creating your own Donut recipe? I’m curious!!

Happy Friday!!

Friday Favorites: Frenchy Friday *

This is how you fail at Friday Favorites: So I got to work this morning only to realize I completely forgot my computer. YES,  I do in fact transport my Macbook Pro back and forth from my office every single day. . . partially because I refuse to work on anything but a Mac, secondly because well . . . I was never given a work computer. #StartUpCulture. It was just assumed that I use the one I already have. But since I pretend to blog and run an Etsy shop I kinda (sorta) need it at home too. It’s been a pain in the ass for almost 3 years but I’ve gotten used to it.

Anyhow, me forgetting my computer is NOT something out of the ordinary. I forget lots of shit. Like ALL the time. Normally I would just turn my Jeep around and go get it but in case any of you missed out: as of late, my husband and I started car-pooling and uh yeah- No car to go back and get it. . . so here I am. Posting from a Toshiba on Windows 8, completely screwed sideways. None of my shortcuts work, I had to actually Log In to sites, save all my photos to desktop, OH and can’t forget to clear the history today. . .  . Regardless, I can’t let this stop me from posting something absurdly stupid. I have to keep up appearances!

In honor of Friday Favorite I hope to keep this short and sweet by addressing my infatuation with French Bulldogs. While I have never owned one, this doesn’t make me any less obsessed. If anything I could be MORE obsessed. Anyhow, here are some of my favorite reasons – paired with Frenchy photos (compliments of Pinterest) – to further support why I (and everyone else, #duh) wants a F.B.D.

1. They are romantic:

2. They Make Good Snuggle Buddies:

3. They Are Thoughtful:

4. They Practice Yoga:

5. They Are Dreamers:

6.  They Can Build Sandcastles:

7. They Steal Hearts:

8.  They Float:

9. They Always Apologize:

10.  They Dance:

11. They Are Photogenic:

12. They Are Competitive:

13. They Are Great With Kids:

14. They Are Trendsetters:

15. They Are The Cutest EVER:

 

So that about wraps up my Friday Favorites. #LookAtThoseEars!!

Silver White Winters That Melt Into Springs. . . *

. . .These are a few of my favorite things! #FridayFavorites. #YesIJustQuotedTheSoundOfMusic. #GetUsedToIt.

So anyhow: Hell YES. It’s 53 degrees out in Detroit and I couldn’t be happier it’s Friday. I would like to get this Friday Favorites kicked off with a few of the things that are just making my life today. . . . and basically this week in general!

Friday Favorites

First off: Sweet Tunes. I have been having one of those weeks where everything that’s roughly 10 years old is just rocking my world. I’m reliving my youth and I probably definitely made a new Spotify playlist that’s 581 songs of pure Indie Rock and distant memories. I couldn’t be happier about this. Lets review some of the bands that made this “My Youth & Yours” (Feel Free To Follow Me On Spotify: Chelsea Elizabeth Scally) playlist shall we?

Throw Back Tunes

Yes, I made this. No, I am not ashamed. #JustBored. Pretty much the best music you can find for a day like today.

Second Up: Fresh Air & Sunshine. Yes, this is for real. 50 Degrees. #SpringIsInTheAir! FYI, It will be in the 20’s again by Sunday. #Michigan. #CherishItWhileYouCan. I did, however, make the most of cruising to pick up our office lunch by opening up the Jeeper’s Sky Roof for the first time this year . . . . and of course jamming out to above mentioned tunes. Hey, I might even get a car wash today. . . . if you know me, that’s saying A LOT.

Third Runner Up: My Job, GroupGolfer.com. Deals are “Clubbin’ It Up” today. Golf is definitely in the air and warm weather is just around the corner. I always LOVE the first spring Friday when I come into the office and we are running a course in every market. . . .and they are all crushing it. It’s a happy happy day for golfers all around and it makes my day. #TeeItUp. Also, a big shout out to “Special Fridays” – another awkward term for Free Lunch Friday- and the selection of El Charro. Best Mexican on the East Side. #GreatWorkTeam. #ThatsANachoNotASalad. Oh and does anyone know where I can get a good pie at around these parts? #HappyPiDay! #LovePie. #FatKid.

Fourth and Final Favorite Of The Day: The #100HappyDays Challenge. It’s pretty much the coolest and most humbling thing I’ve participated with in a while. It’s basically a challenge to have 100 Happy Days in a row. You can check out more here. I’m only on Day 5 and already feel more grateful. It’s beyond simple. . .idiot proof even, all you need to do is snap a photo of one thing each day, moment, memory etc. and label it #100HappyDays. DONE. Don’t skip a damn day people! If you complete this challenge 100HappyDays.com sends you a photo album of all your Happy Days- (Don’t Forget To Register At The Link Provided Or Click On The Photo Below). Apparently 71% of people fail this challenge and the number one reason is claimed to be “Not Enough Time”. #Sad. I however, have every intention of completing this challenge and am loving every second of it. Seriously, check it out. It’s fantastic!
