Columbus [Donut] Day

Blake planned a fun trip down to Richmond, VA to celebrate Columbus Day. 
Hooray for government holidays!
 It started raining as we pulled away and I was in heaven wrapped up in a blanket with gas station hot choc driving in the country. Add a little Conference on the radio and it was perfect. 
First stop was DIXIE DONUTS.
It was such as adorable little donut shop with the coolest flavors 
(like french toast, peach cobbler, pumpkin cream cheese!)
And sprinkles galore!
Somehow we got talked into buying a dozen....weird.
Blake loved the Salted Carmel and I loved the pumpkin glazed. 
And the raspberry. And the peach. And the chocolate. And the sprinkles.... :)
Then we grabbed lunch in the adorable town. 
It reminded me of Stars Hollow 
We shopped around the little town and found an amazing store- Need Supply
Hipster central

The sweater I loved was $ it was a quick look around but still a fun store
We stayed the night in Short Pump, VA and it is the hidden gem of Virginia let me tell ya. 
Our hotel was attached to the mall (genius!) with a J Crew neeeext door and 
Blake took me out for a  steak dinner. Score!
I got to read my kindle in bed and then eat donuts again for breakfast. 
Preeetty solid Columbus Day for the Behnkes.
