Friday Favorites: Dough Co.

Happy Friday ❤︎ Things got pretty serious on Wednesday so I want to spread some joy & change the mood around here today…

This week K and I wandered out of our comfort zone and popped into a new local eatery:
Dough Co. Doughnuts & Coffee.

Dough Co 3

Right off the bat I will admit that I am a doughnut snob. There is only one place (out of ±10) around here that makes me crave those glazed amazing circles of fried goodness. Still, I walked into this industrial-looking brick bakery on Wednesday afternoon with an open mind. Luckily, I also had an open nose: the smell was delicious!

The lunch menu wasn’t expansive, but you won’t hear us complain about the quality! K ordered a croissant with sausage, egg, and (American) cheese; I had a round with the like, except bacon instead of snausage 🙂 Are you wondering what a “round” is? I had no idea when I ordered it… Turns out it’s like a burger bun- except it’s fried dough, like an un-glazed doughnut.
AH. MAY. ZING.

In addition to the made-from-scratch sandwiches, we also had blueberry cobbler coffee and doughnuts! K got a Long John (cream stick) with Bavarian cream and I had half a dozen doughnut holes. (Om nom nom… my weakness! ❤︎ ) Guys…. I have never had a taster doughnut hole. It was sweet and soft and fresh. I almost cried. You know how some doughnuts leave a waxy feeling in your mouth? These left no such residue; just a few thousand happy taste buds begging for more.

We will most definitely be back 🙂 If you live in the area (or if you happen to be passing through Ohio on I-77) you should most definitely swing by Dough Co. Doughnuts and Coffee.

Sharing all the Goods This Friday!

This was going to be a bitchy post but then I had a change of heart and a million happy/funny things happened to me and I just snapped out of my bitter mood. So today I’m linking up with the amazingly wonderful Chelsea from The New Wifestyle (who just spent the week in Hawaii (shut up!!) with her birthday-boy husband) for her Tell Me Something Good Friday!

Speaking of Chelsea, that selfless, giving, big-hearted woman sent me some cloth napkins that came her way via a generous neighbor. I super LOVE that we have some cloth napkins around the house now so we can use them at every meal verses creating waste with paper napkins and paper towels. Yay!!

Also arriving in the mail this week was this book. (Cue the embarrassing story…)

So I open my mailbox and find this book addressed to me from the author (!!). I excitedly open my random package and squeal to my husband that “I’ve finally made it as a blogger! An author just sent me her book to review! Someone actually sent me something for free!” Then the next day I’m browsing my usual blogs and see this post from Kristin at SYIAP. And I realize that about a month ago I signed up to receive this book. So no one hunted me down or sought me out- I signed up for the copy of the book.

I’m such a dip sometimes.

Moving on…

I won one of those awesome rafflecopter-y giveaways!! I seem to have good luck with these giveaways and I am SO thankful to the hosts for doing these. Now I can get some fancy make-up from Ulta! Thank you:

This week feels like it’s dragging on… but at least it’s been a pretty good week! This weekend we’re taking our annual anniversary picture with our tree, and I get to see two of my best friends from high school, and on Sunday we’re watching my baby brother graduate from OSU! (a.k.a. I’m going to sit in a stadium for +6 hours and read a book.) Plus it’s Mother’s Day so I’m expecting a diamond necklace from my fur-kids (kidding).

Ok. I’m done rambling. Tell me about something good in your life! What are your plans this weekend?
