Before cupcakes ever came along, doughnuts were my “thing.” My family knows my love for Krispy Kreme Chocolate Iced Kreme Filled doughnuts is not to be messed with. Can anyone else relate to the pure disappointment on those days when you open a box of KK and find it to only be filled with the Original Glazed? That is always such a letdown. Glazed are great and all, but the Kreme Filled is legit to.die.for.
As good as KK is, independent bakeries and shops have that added local-flavor factor that makes the overall experience hard to compete with.
Glazed offers a variety of unique flavors that I have never seen anywhere else.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, I am completely in the Christmas spirit! I love it. I even told Greg this morning that “I just want it to get cold and stay cold!” That is crazy talk for me. I get cold so easily and stayed here in the south for a reason! But, Christmas isn’t Christmas without chilly, jacket-wearing, boot-stomping, see-your-breath-in-the-air weather. And as much as I normally do not like the cold, I am ready for it to come and stay for a while.
While I was sad to see my family go this weekend, I know Thanksgiving is only the beginning of the holiday season and there is so much more to come!
The sermon at church this morning was all about how today, the start of advent, is our (Christians) period of waiting for Christ to come on Christmas day. We need to be patient during this time, but instead of waiting quietly and idly, we should use this waiting period to serve God by serving others.
While it is easy to get caught up in the shopping, traveling and stressing over the holidays, I need to remember to make this time about the one who gave it all to us in the first place.
This week I am praying for patience through these weeks leading up to Christmas and for God to show me how I can better serve Him during this time.
What are you most looking forward to this holiday season?
If you had half the Thanksgiving I did, then you had it pretty good. Because mine was awesome! From start to finish, the day really could not have been better.
I know I already talked about the Turkey Day Run on Thursday morning, but that was the perfect way to start a day full of consumption. After the race, we came home to shower and clean up then it was time to party!
Thanksgiving is here and just in time. I don’t think I could have waited another hour.
