Breezy Days: Voodoo Doughnuts

Voodoo Doughnuts

Back in 2011 when Ryan & I were first married we lived in Portland for the summer while he did door-to-door pest control sales. I was still re-cooping from my melanoma surgery and didn't know anyone in the area, so I didn't get out to explore Portland as much as I had wanted to. One of the main places I've been wanting to hit for ages is Voodoo Doughnuts. 

As we packed up our stuff, said our goodbyes to family, we hit the road and Ryan asked if I wanted to hit up Voodoo? I waffled back and forth "well, no it's out of the way" or "I'm not very hungry right now"...but Ryan saw through the bologna and just started driving us towards the blessed pink building. 

We had our guy at the counter pick out the 6 best Voodoo doughnuts for us to try, and OH MY GOSH. AMAZING. My favorites were the bacon maple bar and voodoo guy with raspberry jelly inside. It was the perfect road trip food for the way home. Hooray for sugar comas!

We drove through the night, dropped Taylor & Nikole off in Logan, then continued home to Provo and pulled in at 6 in the morning on Sunday. YUCK. Suffice it to say we were dead asleep till almost 2pm and were hung-over from staying up all night and sleeping all day. The next day we dived back into the grind of school and now we are trying to finish the semester alive! Even though it was a long drive...I'm glad we chose to drive up to Portland and spend time with Ryan's family before another crazy year of school, graduation, and life :)
