I have found the best combo meal of the century. I do not understand why every restaurant has not picked up on this brilliant idea because I think that it would create world peace.
That above oval of goodness is an old fashioned donut with maple glaze and it COMES WITH your burger, fries and drink. The MIL and I split a cheeseburger because now that the baby is taking up more room that my precious stomach used to have I needed to save space for my DONUT.
After our ridiculously nutritious meal we went to the two best stores on the planet (sorry Costco, you have been replaced)….Target and Trader Joe’s. We came home for a while to play with Charlie because we were missing him and then went to go see Mirror Mirror. Nothing is better than going to a movie on a rainy day. The movie was really cute and Julia Roberts was incredible in it, she is one of my all time favorites.
Dinner was eaten in the theater:
Dessert was eaten at the Yogurtland:
I got to meet up with reader/bloggers Sara, Lora and Katie! Being around cute babies makes me at least 8 billion times even more excited for August.
It is now 8 o’clock on a Friday night and we are doing really awesome, cool things like trying to get Charlie to take a family photo with us. He wanted to give me kisses instead.
We did finally get a good one of him but I had to go ahead and make it creepy.
What is your long run this weekend? Do you have a race?
If you had to choose between a donut and fries, what would you choose?
-Donut. No questions asked. Good thing my MIL bought a few to bring home too:)
I’ve been wanting to see Mirror Mirror for so long- love Julia Roberts! I think my 2 favorite films of hers are Stepmom and Notting Hill- I could watch those 2 over and over! Not much of a donut fan myself but loving the look of all that glaze…at first glance I thought it was a jacket potato…a mighty big one, for that matter!
Jana (Running Vegetarian)
Don’t forget about Erin Brockovich. She was awesome in that one too.
Excuse me. Why don’t I live on the West Coast for these brilliant food combinations. That looks so good. I would choose donut as well-sweet buds for the win! :)
Have a lovely weekend girly! :)
That donut looks just incredible! We need a yogurtland so badle here on the East Coast- except that I’d be there allllll the time…!
No race for me this weekend, and I did my “long” run mid week with a 10 miler. Not so long, but I’ll take it!
Have a great weekend!
Have a great weekend Janae! I’m about to head out for 14 miles.
All your snacks look so delicious and make me so jealous!
I am running my 3rd half marathon tomorrow and hoping for a PR but its a very hilly course, which has me a little nervous!
Katie @ Peace Love & Oats
I would choose fries, they last longer! I honestly cannot tell you the last time I ate a donut… I know I had a donut hole a year and a half ago…
Kris @ www.kris-lawrence.com
Only a preggo would want donuts & burgers together. I just can’t join you on that eating disaster…too weird a combo for me. ;)
FRIES everytime. They are my favorite food!
Heather @ Run Eat Play
I love that babies little pink track suit – I am so buying one for my neice!
My long run this weekend was three miles :) But I haven’t run in a long time because of my plantar fasciitis and calf issues, so I’m just starting to ease back into it.
Have a great weekend!
Long run is Boston!!! In the heat. Ugh.
Got to say, don’t really love any fried food. It’s the mouth-feel. But I do eat sweet potato fries sometimes.
Luv What You Do
I am off to do at least 10 miles. Crossing my fingerss that it doesn’t rain on me. I am not a fan of the donut (I know so crazy…my boyfriend and I were just talking about this last night), but I will be treating myself to a HUGE Starbucks when I am done!
I really am loving Emma Stone right now, but my favorite actress has always been Reese Witherspoon.
Sadly, we have more snow here, and its still snowing :( So the only run will be tomorrow on the tmill for 30 minutes.
Donut, easy question ;)
Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries
julia roberts is one of my all time favorite actresses too! i also love rachel mcadams and katherine heigl.
that donut is HUGE and awesome! i’d totally choose a donut over fries any day. :)
I crave sweet stuff, so I would go for the donut. I have a race tomorrow, it’s my first marathon. I just hope the race is not canceled, Texas is getting some severe weather warnings!
Soooooooo I don’t have anything important to add except that the picture and description of that donut made my mouth water and now I want donuts!!!
Donut for me too…no question. Quite jealous of that picture; I’ll be honest. :)
I’ve ramped up my miles a lot the past couple of weeks, so I only did 7 this weekend. Got my miles under nine minutes though, so I’m excited!
Megan @ Run Like a Grl
No races this weekend or running at all, sadly :( Injured. But I am rooting for all the More Magazine Half Marathon runners!
In a choice between fries and a donut, donut would always win. Hands down.
lol… you’re so stinkin cute!! August will be here before you know it!! So awesome!! When do you get to find out if you’re having a boy or a girl? I forget :( So excited for you and Billy! When I have time between homework, school, and work, and “training” (in quotes cuz it’s not really happening lol), I look for updates! :) *HUGS*
[email protected] You Just Did What
10 miles today.Neither my head nor legs are so sure they are up for it…gonna be fun.
I don’t know how to choose over donut or fries. But I think my sweet tooth overpowers so a devils food donut is my fave!
It’s a no brainer: donuts. What’s the name of that place you went to?
Hey!!! It is called Scott’s donuts on Margaurite in mission viejo! Best donuts around!
It’s a 30minute drive, but that donut looks so worth it!
I love the family picture w/Charlie! I got 12 miles done before 9 a.m.:-) 1st week of taper, yay! Hands down, donut wins–I swear they taste a million times better when pregnant.
I bet your IL’s are having a blast with you and Billy (and baby bump) around!
I want to see Mirror, Mirror, but will probably wait until it comes out on DVD to see it. Tomorrow I’m doing an indoor (super) sprint triathlon aimed at being a person’s first triathlon. It’s a 10 minute swim, a 20 minute run, and a 30 minute bike ride. I’m a little nervous about the swimming part – I haven’t been swimming in over a year and I’m not the best at the breaststroke; might bust out my sweet, sweet doggie paddling skills. Today I’m testing out my new Forerunner foot pod on a short run.
Patti @ This Starts Tonight
I am my favorite actress!! J/K…this is cliched but I’m obsessed with every movement of Meryl Streep’s face. I’ve never seen anyone so specific. Love Rachel McAdams and Amy Adams as well AND Melissa McCarthy blows me away EVERY TIME.
5 mile race tomorrow!!
BUT most importantly, I have that exact same picture of my boyfriend and my dog and I. She’s staring creepily straight at the computer and I have wild eyes from trying to get her to look in the right direction and Alex looks totally cute and normal. Also I had popcorn at the movies for dinner last night. Glad our lives continue to run parallel. :)
Jenn @ RunItMyWay
Ahhh hahaha that picture of you, Charlie and Billy is hysterical! You make the best faces in pictures :)
This weekend my ‘long’ run is 10 miles – nothing too crazy. Still easing back into it after some injuries!
I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!! You look fabulous- you’re glowing. Pregnancy looks fabulous on you :)
Meagan @ Managing Meagan
Why can’t all places sell doughnuts as a standard part of the meal?? I mean– it seems logical to me! ;)
Meryl Streep! I think she’s so classy & such a good actress.
If I had to choose between fries & a donut I would pick… Sweet potato fries :) muhahaha
Cute picture of Charlie!
Y’all’s (two apostrophes are better than one) family pictures at the end are so cute! That donut looks beyond amazing! I’m really partial to Reese Witherspoon, Rachel McAdams, and Zooey Deschanel! If you need something to watch on your treadmill when Biggest Loser is over, you should totally check out New Girl–beyond hilarious! Sweet over salty wins in my book every single time. I love me some salt and vinegar chips and such, but desserts do me in!
Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile
Holy donut!!! Lol I’m a sweet over salty girl, but donuts aren’t my fave so I’d prob rather have the fries :D
Favorite actress = meryl streep!
Love Charlie!! :)
Claire @ Let's Go On A Living Spree
Long run is 12 this weekend. Glad to be getting back into it after my month long hiatus.
Donut vs. fries? You’re gonna do that to us????? ;-) Ok, I think I’d choose donut because I just had this one called a “spudnut” that they make here in Charlottesville. It’s made out of potatoes but is sooooo good! I guess Spudnuts used to be all around the east coast and we have one of the last ones :-)
donut vs. fries… hmmm. it’ll depend on my mood :)
I’m usually craving sweet so probably donuts though!
Hamburger served with donut.. sounds like dream come true for some ppl lol
Yellow Haired Girl
I forgot about Mirror Mirror! I think that’s something I’d go see …
That’s a beauty picture of you! And not just because you’re holding that glorious donut ;)
Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy
I would probably choose a chocolate donut…or sweet potato fries.
Holly @ Healthy Living Holly
i have a 10K race tomorrow – the vanouver sun run! i am so excited :)
and i would definitely pick fries over a donut. fried carbs dipped in sugar tomato sauce (aka ketchup) gets me every time! especially if they are sweet potatoes!
What a great picture of you with the donut! You are definitely in your element. I love Julia Roberts and Reese Witherspoon. Have you seen This means War? Hilarious a must see!
Ok… I live in OC…. I must know where this place is!!!
You have to go…best donuts around! It is called Scott’s donuts and it is in mission viejo! I want to hear what you think about it:) have a great day.
YEs, Julia Roberts IS amazing. I just saw The Vow and really liked it–especially b/c I cried so much. HAH.
SO glad I have a man whom I love–it made the movie that much sweeter!
Kristen @ notsodomesticated
Wow, donuts with lunch?? That is a pretty awesome idea! ;)
I’d probably say GOOD donuts over French fries. But they have to be good ones!
Today was supposed to be a 12 mile taper for the OKC marathon in 2 weeks. I got lost on my route and ended up only doing 10.5. Oops!
Donuts vs french fries…hmmm that’s a tough one. Definitely depends on the mood.
Reese Witherspoon is one of my favorite actresses!
I love Sandra Bullock and Reese Witherspoon. Both great actresses and awesome women to boot!
That donut looks amazing! What restaurant is that? We are going to Cali in 2 weeks, I may have to pick up a few of those :)
It is called Scott’s donuts in mission viejo! It is incredible, you have to go!
That’s a giant donut!! Love it. I’d say that makes a pretty nutritious lunch ;) I don’t really have a favourite actress! It changes about every month! Have a great Saturday!
OMG that donut. Looks heavenly! My favorite actress is probably jen aniston. she never does wrong.
Great picture of you with the donut!
Got home t 1am from my spring break trip, and got up at 6 for a quality 8 miles. The only thing planned for the day is laundry and eating and napping.
I would say donut, but had some burger king fries this past week that we deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelish.
You definitely have that beautiful pregnancy glow in the first photo! Either that, or you’re uber excited for that donut! Haha, just kidding! I can’t wait to know what you’re having! :D
Kari @ Running Ricig
I heard that Julia Roberts loved staying in her Mirror Mirror costume and scaring her children in it. That’s awesome and makes me like her all the more.
A donut with your meal? count me in!
Your blog makes me want a donut! I ran a half this morning and finally set a new PR and broke 2:20…finally! It was an out and back course (super pretty) but when I saw the guy who was in the lead coming back around mile 9.5 and it had only been 42 minutes I thought of you and speedy Billy! Maybe that could be him someday. Actually it probably will be!
Ahhhh congrats on your amazing half marathon…way to go! Hahahah yep that will totally be billy!
That green sweater-y jacket your friend is wearing… is that an article of maternity clothing? Because if so… oops. I own that sweater. And I am not pregnant. But I do like it!
natalie@ southern fit foodie
Favorite actress – Reese Witherspoon. I have always loved her, and people tell me I look like her all the time. I also love Sandra Bullock, Kate Hudson, and Jennifer Aniston (except for in Horrible Bosses, I hated her character more than any other I’ve ever seen).
No races this weekend, but I did actually do a sprint interval run yesterday (my first one ever) and I was quite proud of myself.
Fries for me! Donuts are good, but they aren’t something that I really crave. More for you, right? :)
Cait the Arty Runnerchick
donut wins by a bizzillion! donuts and their sugary carby goodness are totally the best solution to world peace, someone get krispy kreme over there to the middle east stat! and send a few my way too…lol. :)
That donut looks amazing and that is a wonderful picture of you! :)
fries for sure! that is such a cute picture of you! oh man I want yogurtland now haha. let me know if you guys are doing another CA blogger meetup! :)
Deirdre @ Oh Well Whatever
Seriously need to stop with the cuteness you guys are too much. Can’t imagine how cute that tiny human is going to be.
Donut please! Crap, now I want one.
I ran 10 miles today – so excited and so sore!!!
My favorite actress is Halle Berry. I think she is talented and exceptionally beautiful. I just watched Gothika again during my Spring Break.
I have a 2 mile run tomorrow. Believe it or not it’s a long run for me because I’m a newbie runner. I’m signing up for a 5K in July in Cypress, CA. All participants will get a Bigstick Popsicle at the end of the race. That is better then any medal in my book.
It is extremely difficult to choose between donuts and fries. My favorite donut is devils food cake with chocolate icing and chocolate sprinkles. My favorite fries are homemade fries with salt and ketchup. Sheesh! Now I must make them both in the near future.
Reese. Juila. Jennifer Aniston. Sorry couldn’t pick just one. :)
No long run for me. I’ve been overdosing on sugar instead.
Oddly enough….I would choose french fries over donut. Or onion rings from Sonic! With a Route 44 strawberry limeaide. That’s all though. :) :)
Shay @ Whine Less, Breathe More
I had my second 5K race today!
Donuts!!! Might have to have one tomorrow…
Donuts were the breakfast choice of my birthday-girl daughter. Eyes were bigger than stomachs here, though :P One of those old-fashioned dealios is leftover in a baggie! Look at those CUTE babies!!!!!! I miss babies…I hope that doesn’t make me as creepy as you in that last picture ;-) LOL
I’m going to try to run 8 miles tomorrow…and that will, in fact, be my long run :)
Omg a donut as a combo option??? Insanity!
