Every fourth of July everyone pulls out the red, white, and blue delicousness and celebrates the freedom that our country enjoys because of those who came before us. I personally love it. I love our country, I love how patriotic everything becomes, I love the celebration, friends, family and I love the food. I especially love these strawberry shortcake donuts, Miss Shortcake donut from Gordough’s Donuts in Texas as a matter of fact. And you could totally throw on some blueberries and BAM! you’ve got yourself the star of any BBQ. Add on this fried chicken and honey butter donut or any of the others from our Gordough’s Donuts Copycat Roundup and you just became more than a star, you just became the King or Queen of the 4th of July. (Someone should seriously make you a crown, not me though. I don’t craft)
Gosh, this thing is so crazy delicious. A big, fluffy, glazed donut, creamy, luscious cream cheese frosting that’s so thick you’ll want to rub it all over, and plump, juicy strawberries piled all the way to heaven. Mercy. “Have Mercy”
Sorry, sometimes Full House just slips out of me. I used to LOVE, L-O-V-E, LOVE that show. Oh my gosh I thought it was cool. Not only Full House, but all of T.G.I.F. Everyone watched it on Friday night. And don’t try to tell me you didn’t have a pair of overalls like Stephanie’s or an awesome scruncie. We totally used to wear them in our hair and just around our wrist to be cool. And boy was I… no, no I actually I was the opposite of cool. Yeah, those were not my favorite years. I was definitely a dork. And you know what? I actually hope my girls are little bit dorky too. It made me a better person. What about you? I’d love to hear about your favorite shows growing up, and if you were the dork, jock or popular kid.
