A Long-Awaited Treat

Today was a very exciting day in our household. No, not the baby, yet. But something we’ve still been looking forward to:

Dunkin’ Donuts was the donut shop I grew up with. I’ve never been able to adapt to the Krispy Kremes that are so prevalent in this area….as a matter of fact, I really dislike them. It was exciting enough when the Dunkin’ Donuts chain came to the St. Louis area at all, but they were all so far away, it was a treat reserved for only a few times a year. Now, however, we have our very own store near enough to enjoy at our discretion, (but not too often!).

Yes, I indulged and got a donut and coffee. If anyone wants to judge, go right ahead. But even my doctor’s office admits that there’s nothing wrong with the occasional splurge, and I have splurged so very little since the gestational diabetes diagnosis, that I’m not even sorry about today. It was worth it!

It was fun sharing the “Grand Opening,” (although, I know from driving by that they’ve been open at least part of the week already), with the children, and their fun will continue tomorrow, as Ryan splurged and got them each a donut for Saturday’s breakfast, as well!
