Dunkin Donuts craving & Petunia Pickle Bottom
When Michael and I would walk along the beach in Aruba, we’d stroll by a Dunkin Donuts that was located on the pier.
Unfortunately, we were never carrying money with us at the time, so we obviously couldn’t get anything.
Even though I loved loved loved the breakfast buffet at the resort, I always felt slightly tortured when I’d see a couple walking back to their room with Dunkin Donuts coffee and those little brown bags.
The craving stuck with me even after we returned home, so I naturally made a Dunkin Donuts run yesterday morning.
My mom is a huge fan of their decaf iced coffee, so I picked one up for her and drove over to my parent’s house for a little visit over coffee (and a multi-grain bagel).
By the way, check out the adorable new diaper bag by Petunia Pickle Bottom that she gave to me when I was there!
Even though I already purchased one, I have a feeling that I’ll definitely need a back-up diaper bag.
I absolutely love the bag, which can also be used as a backpack, and I especially love how much fun it is to say “Petunia Pickle Bottom” over and over again.
I can’t be the only one who thinks it’s fun, can I?
Back to breakfast…
This morning’s breakfast is protein pancakes- something else that I missed while we were away. However, those Belgium waffles at the breakfast buffet were something I could have easily eaten every morning for life!
Protein pancakes are certainly much healthier though.
I actually made them with unsweetened applesauce today rather than mashed banana, and they were fantastic. I’d definitely recommend trying them that way. I’m sure that I’ll eat them like this a lot during the fall months.
Are you a fan of Dunkin Donuts? If not, where is your favorite place to get coffee? When I lived up north, there was a Dunkin Donuts everywhere I turned, so it was a big shock to me when I moved down here and they were nowhere to be seen. I actually grew to like Caribou and Panera coffee a lot though. Starbucks is too strong for me! Oh and don’t worry- I am drinking decaf these days.
I’ll be back later this afternoon with a post on how I managed to stay (relatively) healthy in Aruba. I hope you all have a great morning!
(PS- A HUGE congrats to my friend Kirsten who recently found out that she is also expecting a baby boy!)
