This was the page from my Mary Engelbreit calendar this morning:

And this was breakfast, lemon cake for me and raspberry ripple for Mr. Michie:

One made me just as happy as the other!

Our Day

Mr. Michie and I each went our own ways yesterday to run errands and do a little Christmas shopping before we met up again to see, The Hobbit. It was wonderful, Peter Jackson has done such a fantastic job of tying everything in so far, the links between this and The Lord of the Rings was very nicely done.

While I was getting ready, Mr. Michie snapped this on his phone, I thought it was cute, so I am posting it. I love that he will set up a little scene and take a picture. This is a mini Yoda from a Happy Meal we have had for ages, he is a “magic 8 ball” Yoda and lives in the kitchen:

An afternoon snack, the strawberry jam filled snowman for me and the chocolate praline fudge cake for Mr. Michie:



A Date

A few months ago, while walking through our local mall I noticed one of the stores was now covered in white plastic wrap and there was a big sign on it, stating that a Krispy Kreme would be coming soon to this location!

Well, it opened this past week and this weekend Mr. Michie took me on a date there. It was wonderful! The place has a retro vibe, the pink patterned wallpaper on the wall where we sat, was so adorably 1950’s.

They struck the right chord between old and new for me. In my hometown our Krispy Kreme looks exactly like it did when it first opened its doors in the 1950’s. It is where my friends and I would go, if we had been out late, it was where we picked up dozens of boxes of doughnuts to serve after church on Sunday, as my parents ran the “meet and greet” committee and it is where we always pulled in to when the “HOT” sign was on. Because, I don’t know if you are aware of this but it is against the law to drive by a Krispy Kreme store if the “HOT” sign is on (just kidding).

It is also where I took Mr. Michie to on a date when he came to stay with my family one Christmas, he had never been to a Krispy Kreme before and after one bite of a hot glazed doughnut melting into a pile of sugar on his tongue he was hooked.

So, it was only fitting we had a date at our local Krispy Kreme. MMM! We ate some and we took some home for breakfast. Nothing but happiness, sugar and happiness, that is what Krispy Kreme is!
