A Reason To Celebrate!

Are you looking for a reason to indulge? Searching for some justification to feed your sweet tooth? Trying to find an excuse to consume an extra 200-300 calories today? Well, here is the answer you have been waiting for! Today is…


National Donut Day!!


On some days we honor our presidents, our pioneers, our veterans, our secretaries, our teachers, etc, etc. But look a little farther and you will see that we have a day for everything! Cheese Day, Rotten Sneaker Day, Mustard Day, Denim Day, Clear Off Your Desk Day, and History Day. There are also some things too important to be limited to a single day, and have therefore been given a week or a whole month to honor, whatever it is that needs to be honored. Such include: National Canned Food Month, Boost Your Self-Esteem Month, Pickle Week, Snack Food Month, and Cartoon Appreciation Week. Don’t you just love the USA! Although I am a bit confused as to why our planet earth only gets one day and blueberries get a whole month?

We celebrated this beloved holiday by, you guessed it, eating donuts. When simply eating donuts wasn’t enough, we crafted some paper donuts and decorated them with foam sprinkles.

So to all my family, friends and faithful readers, I say indulge, feed that sweet tooth and treat yourself to some sugary goodness with a hole-in-the-middle. You’ll be glad you did!

You are so creative!! Those paper donuts... what a cute idea. Ok, now I'm hungry for a donut. Maybe Justin will run out and get some... and maybe this is why I'm not losing any weight. Hm...

Long live Donut Day.
