Random Weekend Thoughts

After I forwarded this link about The Doughnut Vault to my friend who is from Chicago, she in turn suggested we check out Hypnotic Donuts.  It's like a donut speakeasy...there is no sign on the door, it operates out of a pizza place only on weekend mornings, and when you walk in, you'd never know they sold donuts because they aren't on display.  You have to look at the donuts on-line before you go.  They'll soon be moving to a location of their own around White Rock Lake where you don't have to knock three times before entering.  
Yes, that is bacon.  Maple and bacon and it's appropriately named, Canadian Healthcare.
After all the sugar we were in need of some running around at the park.  This is Stella with her  friend, Blake... 
We also hit up the farmers market downtown for some flowers.
This is Texas, y'all...
Ruibal's is the best place to hit up when you need a lot of flowers.  And we needed a lot.  Ours grew legs and were threatening to run off on their own.
We're having our second hottest summer on record here so finding flowers that look good right now that can withstand the heat is hard!  But even in the heat, it's also hard to be this cool...
Word.

Great weekend photos! I relate to the heat and your flowers. Even my marigolds have been drooping!

The concept of a donut speak-easy is hilarious - those must be some serious donut seekers if they scoping things out online. There's a donut shop here in town that includes bacon in one of it's signature donuts - heart-attack on a plate, that's what I call it. ;)Stella, as usual, is too cute. Word.

I so BADLY wanted to go to the Doughnut Vault before I moved away but it was too popular to even have a chance! I love donuts so so so so very much and the ones you ate look pretty superb.
