If you where a doughnut, what kind of a doughnut would you be?

by Maren on February 16, 2012

So how are you all recuperating from last last nights Valentine’s festivities??

Max and I aren’t a very mushy couple, so we don’t go all out for V-day. Max usually get’s me some flowers, NOT RED ROSES because I don’t like them! I usually get him a card. This year I sent him an e-mail card since I like the rainforest. ;-) We had dinner at the local brewery and called it a night.

Sadly, I don’t have any pictures. We had a pretty tough loss right before dinner and my mind was not very focused on getting pictures.

Today I had my first coffee in a year and a half!!!

For those of you who don’t know… I can’t drink coffee, or couldn’t. I see a homeopathic physician because I can’t take antibiotics after having a severe reaction to one right after my ankle surgery. I can if my life is in danger but not for little things anymore. My doctor puts me on “remedies” and they really do work, but coffee is a natural antidote to the remedies.

I couldn’t have any coffee flavored anything until at least 1 year after my most recent remedy. It’s been a year and a half and after last night’s sleepless night I decided this morning was the perfect time to drink a little joe.

If I get sick and have to be put on another remedy I’ll have to stop drinking it again but until then it’s all coffee all the time. :mrgreen:

The new Starbucks Veranda Roast is FAB!!! If you haven’t tried it yet DO IT!! It’s mild and smooth. I didn’t have to add any soy milk. Sooo smooth!

Yesterday’s lunch was good ole mexican. I don’t think I can live anywhere but California because I would be malnourished and die if I couldn’t have my daily dose of authentic mexican food.

Today I have a measly (yeah right!) 6 mile tempo run. 1 mile warm up, 4 miles at 10:04 and 1 mile cool down.

I’ll leave you with this picture…

Tell me about you!!! I want to know…

What is your nickname?

Mare, like a female horse.

What was the best Halloween costume you ever wore?

I loved my flapper costume from 3 years ago.

Where would you live if you could move anywhere?

I’d ditch the burritos for fettuccini and go to Rome.

The doughnut box is full and it’s right in front of you, which do you pick? Sprinkles? Chocolate Glazed? Maple? Jelly Filled?

I like the cruller style ones that have a white glaze!

Sorry about the loss! :( Your v-day sounds nice and low key. Mine and David’s was like that too, minus the brewery.

I’d pick a sprinkles doughnut! I also loveeeeee that picture of you! It’s high-larious.

wooohooo! Coffee!! I really hope it doesn’t make you sick. I’m having a terrible headache right now and I’m about to have a french vanilla latte. I really hope it kicks in and takes my headache away.

i don’t have too many nick names. Mostly David calls me Kellz (yes, with a “z”, I’m special), or just Kel by everyone else.

Donuts are not my fave. Although I’m thinking abut making some homemade this weekend. I woul definitely need the SPRINKLES, however.

My nicknames are Freckles, and it used to be Porky. In a nice way. I know it seems it can’t be nice. Haha. But it’s like Corrie – Corky – Porky. These things happen. Lol.

I had some co-workers that called me Bubbles for a long time. It seemed to fit :)

Oh man, I would probably go for the plain ole glazed donut. yum!

I would definitely give living in a big city for a while ;)


Cinnamon @ eatpraytri February 16, 2012 at 1:38 pm

loving the new blog layout btw…
I have about a million nicknames, Cinn, C, Spice, C-Money, Cinn-dawg…the list goes on and on….
best Halloween costume: Cinnamon Roll

I would be the chocolate cake w/glaze…if I could have no other donut but that one forever, I would be just fine.

The only doughnuts I will eat are apple cider doughnuts from a place in my town…I am not a doughnut girl. Nickname: Hil. Halloween costume? Would be when my mom bought me a sweet yellow dress from the Salvation Army when I was little and I got to be Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I truly love living where I do, but sometimes I have dreams of living in a warmer climate. Happy coffee-ing!


Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio February 17, 2012 at 6:34 am

I’d be a chocolate cake donuts for sure!


Harley@Process Server Phoenix AZ February 24, 2012 at 4:29 am
