Donuts with E | Mommy and Me | 176th ed


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

When you go back to where you grew up (some people call it home…I don’t…home is where my little people are!), you just want to have certain things that remind you of there. Case in point? Shipley’s Donuts. They are just what I remember and what I know and I wanted some. Thankfully, my sister picked us up some (without asking) after driving to work, getting sick and coming home. Yeah, I guess she loves me.

Donuts with E

Of course, she got E a dozen donut holes and me 6 full-sized donuts, which we didn’t nearly eat. Mr. Serious said he didn’t think I would think they were as good as I rememebered. He was wrong. They were delicious.

Mommy and Me Monday at  Really, Are You Serious?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

  2. Jennifer H says:

    Yum! And cute pic.

  3. So glad you got your Shipley’s fix and blue bubblegum shaved ice. Nothing like a sugar rush in the Texas heat!

    1. Ahhh…yeah. Bubble gum shaved ice and donuts. Droooollllll!

  4. Mr. Serious says:

    I’m often wrong….I should never bet against the delight caused by fried dough and sugar

    1. I’ve yet to find a really good place here. I mean there is Dunkin’ and Krispy Kreme, but they aren’t my fav!

  5. Super cute pic! And I totally know what you mean about needing to eat the foods that remind you of your childhood home. Whenever we go back to visit family, we need to go to Four Corners hot dog stand, get ice cream at Friendlys and hit up Dunkin Donuts for sure.

    1. I hope you do (as I run to make sure I have a picture for this week!)

  6. Grammy Staffy says:

    How delicious….. I hope that you enjoyed every bite. Hugs

  7. Mmm donuts! I’ve never heard of Shipleys before. Tim Hortons is our big donut chain in Canada.

  8. Adorable! I love this…I should take more photos WITH my kids as opposed to OF them : )

  9. You’ve reminded me that it’s been too long since I chowed on a donut! I agree, I don’t call where I grew up home and have wondered why others do!

    1. It’s probably for the best…but of course, I want another one!

  10. Oh my goodness! I lived near a Shipley’s for five years and their donuts are so yummy!

  11. Yumm! I totally know what you mean. We had a little donut shop by my parents that was amazing. I was so sad last time we went by there and they had closed.

  12. Yummy!! And cute pic. 🙂 I’m so sad I didn’t get a second to put up a Mommy & Me post this week.

    1. It happens to the best of us! I still don’t have a picture for this week, I don’t think!

  13. love donuts from “home” and i can’t wait to get some of ours at the end of the month!

    1. Yay for going back and getting them! Those really were some great donuts!

      And, those little pies were awesome, too!
