Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Donut Holes

Tell me something – donuts or donut holes? I think it’s
donut holes for me because they are more fun to eat, you can eat
more of them without feeling guilty, but I think I love them the
most because they are just damn adorable. I grew up STUFFING MY
FACE with donuts. I was a child that ate more sugar than child
services should be ok with. My mom would buy a dozen donuts for me
and my friends on the swim team and I would find myself eating at
least 10 of them. At least. I was in a sugar coma from ages 3-20. I
really wish that age range wasn’t accurate, but it’s spot on.
Get this – I asked my mom if I could have a donut when we went to
the grocery store once (I think I was probably 3 or 4, I hope) and
when she said we could get one after she shopped, I straight up
punched her. Over a donut. My sugar addiction was so real. My mom
should have put me in rehab at that point in my life, but instead
she carried me to the car kicking and screaming. And people wonder
why I don’t want to have kids.

So I’m obviously passionate about donuts. I’m guessing my
mom ate them while I was in the womb and it’s engrained in my
DNA. Do you think things work like that? Like if you ate salmon and
veggies all 9 months, your child comes out a pescatarian? Being
pregnant scares me for a number of reasons, but the whole craving
weird things is pretty high up there. I already have pretty intense
cravings for frozen yogurt and yelling at my husband when it’s
that time of the month. But being pregnant is like it’s that time
of the month for over 9 months. F*cking bananas. Anywho, what
I’ve been trying to mention for 2738190810 years but continue to
talk about having children is the fact that a little
donut hole maker
will change your life. It’s actually a cake
pop maker but I use it for donut holes and it makes my life a life
worth living. Sure, it’s a slightly pointless machine…UNTIL YOU
MAKE DONUT HOLES and your whole family thinks you are a goddess.
You can also make my Pancake
and your children will think you are the coolest mom
ever. This
donut hole maker
is here to ensure that you’re cool. It’s
here for you.

Speaking of NOT being cool – Do any of you get up before your
partner and roommate and try your best to be as quiet as possible
yet still somehow manage to drop and shatter a dish immediately?
This is me every morning. I almost always get up before my husband,
to finish my blog post for the day, but I first make my coffee. And
without missing a beat, I ALWAYS drop something. Yesterday it was a
spoon, today it was my frother. Once I turn on the lights a few
hours later, there is always coffee droplets everywhere. It’s
inevitable. We are still on the hunt for a new house and every time
I mention where the coffee maker would be in relation to our
bedroom. Hopefully a full floor away. Keeping this marriage
together may depend on it. And if the house is located close to a
froyo location.

House hunting is such an rollercoaster of emotions. And SH*T,
it’s hard on the marriage. Ok, I shouldn’t say hard because
there are much harder things out there (that’s what she said
-Michael Scott), but it’s tough when you both want different
things. I’m surprisingly easy to please (that’s what she said,
ugh this is too easy today) and I would say yes to anything. I can
somehow picture myself in every single house. It’s not helpful.
Luckily my husband isn’t like that and actually uses his brain.
He questions everything and thinks through all of it. Then a few
hours later, he comes up with his answer and I’ve already moved
past it since I didn’t think he loved the place. So now I’ve
taught myself to not fall in love with a house because he may not
love it or it may go off the market by the time we make a decision.
But then he’s not sure if I actually like it because I show no
emotion throughout. It’s exhausting, for both of us. And you now
since you had to read that entire last paragraph.

And now that we are thinking about actually moving, I’m
somehow depressed about leaving this house and this neighborhood. I
love our house. And I love our neighbors…the ones who aren’t
selling drugs or calling the cops on the people who don’t mow
their lawns. I love all the other ones. When we bought our first
house, a friend told me to not get too attached because we will
probably move in the next 5 or so years. I didn’t believe her
because buying a house for the first time was a nightmare with my
business and because moving is what I picture hell to be like. But
here we are, 5 years later. I guess it’s time to do some fall
cleaning. You know what will DEFINITELY be coming with me to this
new house that we will someday buy – this
donut hole maker
. No donut left behind.
