The Weekenders: Lots of Donuts & Homecoming


Hello everyone!

Saying “happy Monday” seems a little like an oxymoron, but I hope you all had a good start to the week anyway. I hope you all also had a fun weekend! I know I did. This weekend was full of adventures, and I thought i would document it for you guys.

// Friday // 

On Monday or Tuesday of last week, my best friends and I all decided that since last week was going to be pretty rough, that we would do something fun on Friday. We decided to drive to a Duck Donuts that was about 20 minutes away. One of my friends had talked about it how good it was we thought it would be a good way to mark the end of a long week, and I looked forward to our trip all week!

Once Friday night came, we went to Dinner at Ruby Tuesday’s, which is always delicious. I had the salad bar and those croutons are to die for. After that, we thought we would go to Walmart to let our food settle and check out their Halloween costumes. We had fun playing with the different costumes and deciding which costumes we wanted. I picked out my costume… But you guys will have to wait and see my Halloween post to see what I picked!

When we got out of the car at Duck Donuts and started walking towards the door, I could smell the donuts from outside! It was so hard to craft a donut from all of the choices that they gave us! I got four donuts, gotta have something for breakfast, right? And I got one for my boyfriend, too.


We were able to watch the donuts be fried and decorated, and when we ate them the donut was still warm from the fryer. It was heavenly. Seriously, if you have a Duck Donuts near you and you’ve never been, I really recommend going! If you’re a donut fan (who doesn’t like donuts?!) than you’ll love this place. Get the Oreo donut (bottom right in the box in the picture above) from the “customer favorites” section on the little card you use to order your donuts. It seriously tastes like they melted down an Oreo.

My friends and I all took so many pictures there at our table, I think the employees at Duck’s thought we were nuts. We got so many strange looks. But who cares, right? Gotta capture the moment in remembrance of the donuts. Here’s some of the cute pictures we took:



Side note: The coffee was really good, too. I tried their Pumpkin Harvest coffee and I definitely recommend. This is coming from a girl who loves her plain black coffee!

Love my friends ❤

// Saturday //

Saturday was Homecoming at my college, and I was woken up at *cough* eleven *cough* by the parade outside my window. Not a bad way to be woken up, to be honest. Better than the usual angry alarm clock.

Campus was swarmed with parents, families, alumni, and students out to enjoy the festivities. There’s a Homecoming fair after the parade that everyone goes to, and all the clubs on campus come out and sell stuff at tables around the quad. There was a band playing, too, and they were pretty good… Better than the band last year, that’s for sure.They played oldies songs like “Sweet Caroline” and “It’s Raining Men.”

I manned the table for the Creative Writing club. We sold bookmarks for a dollar, and we did pretty well if i do say so myself! I also took a walk around with my friends to see what the other clubs were selling, and there were some really great things. I think I got a little carried away, but totally worth it.

We got a beautiful day. It ended up getting pretty warm, I was way overdressed in my sweater and puffy vest!

Later that night, we went to the Homecoming Buffet with all of our friends, here’s a selfie I took afterward with my roommate, hot fresh apple cider in hand:


// Sunday //

Sunday night my roommate and i woke up and decided to go to Dunkin’ Donuts to get coffee and something to eat for breakfast. I know, lots of donut shops! And, on a whim I decided to try their pumpkin macchiato, and I really liked it. Again, this is coming from a girl who loves her black coffee with nothing else. What have I become??

On the drive there and back, we listened to throwback songs, like Ashley Tisdale’s “He Said She Said” and Jonas Brothers. It blows my mind that some of those songs are ten years old. I can’t comprehend it.


After we got back from Dunkin’, my boyfriend arrived and we spent the rest of the day together. Lots of time was spent taking silly pictures like this on Snapchat:


After that, we went to the praise service on campus and then went to dinner. I did some reading and got some homework done. Then, the weekend was over. It’s always a bummer, especially after such a good weekend like this one, but lots of good memories were made. I’m so thankful for all of these people who I love so much!

I hope you all made lots of memories this weekend, and have a great week!
