Hypnotic Donuts


A new donut shop just opened in my 'hood in East Dallas!

This picture doesn't do the shop true justice!
These are my niece's choices.
Yes, that's bacon on a donut!

She loved them both.

My favorite (not pictured here)
is the
sopapilla donut
it's covered in cinnamon,
and it's delicious

They also offer biscuits
you can get them plain
or
covered in jam
or
covered in fruit
or
covered in gravy
or
covered in peanut butter
or
covered in gravy and peanut butter


If you go on the weekends, go early and be prepared to stand in line!
The line moves fast, and I promise it's worth the wait.

The Netherlands

Last week, my company sent me on a business trip to Amsterdam.  I only got to take a few pictures with my iPhone, and they didn't really come out very well.. but here we go!
They are pretty random!

It snowed before we got there.  Thankfully, it didn't snow while we were there.
It was just very cold.  Highs in the 20's.
This picture was taken in the train going from Amsterdam to The Hague

 Another picture from the train - on our way to The Hague

This is our view from the car on the way to work on Friday morning
We were amazed at all the people on bicycles
Here's a perfect example - the entire family on bikes for the morning commute

The train

We ate at a pasta bar in Amsterdam
Do you want some "shrimps" with your penne?

Pink Bike....
are words really necessary here?

This is one of the canals in Amsterdam
I took many pictures, but it was dark and cold
This one is fun because the flash highlighted the tires of the bikes
