On Mother’s Day, I came across Your Taste Buds Will Explode When You Try These 15 South Carolina Doughnut Shops. After going through the list, I realized that Boiling Springs, SC was conveniently on my route to my parent’s house in Charlotte.
The writeup on Java Donuts & Bagels was short and sweet, “People hail this as one of the best doughnut shops you will find. They say they are “authentic”, “old-fashioned goodness”, and they just plain rock!” They have no website. No Facebook page. Nowhere to be found on Instagram. This made me want to go even more.
Located @ 1113 Springfield Road in Boiling Springs, SC .
I immediately put the donuts in my trunk and continued the drive to my parent’s house.
Last time my Mom and I got donuts, we got a full dozen…and I knew better than to do THAT again. I opted for 1/2 a dozen + the lovely chocolate frosted thang (what the heck is it called?!). The sweet girl working then threw in another glazed donut and some donut holes free of charge. I tried every single kind and all were delicious. The donuts reminded me of MJ Donuts (325 S Polk Street in Pineville, NC) in Charlotte. Everything from the decor to the donuts to limited info online was similar.
If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend them for your classic donut fix!
I’ve been off my caffeine kick for quite some time. I had cut caffeine out from November 2015 up until fairly recently. I recently saw that Red Bull came out with a new “Summer Edition” – Kiwi Twist. The last Summer Edition is now their all the time “Yellow Edition” – basically the Red Bull formerly known as Summer Edition *hello, Prince*. I was in love with the Summer Edition when it came out and finally caved to see what Kiwi Twist was all about.
And the verdict? Oh, c’mon, of course, I love it. It hasn’t made it’s way back into my life as an everyday thang, but it’s definitely making some appearances. We’re taking things slow.
I stayed in Charlotte the day after Mother’s Day so I could get my hair did. I still haven’t been able to breakup with Kristy, even after being in Greenville for over a year. Before heading to get beautified I went across the street to take class from Michelle at Pure Barre Lake Norman. Actually, even before that, I stopped into Clean Juice to down a smoothie and pick up some snacks for later.
Have you tried these before? They are hands down my favorite bars I’ve ever had. And I have tried A LOT of bars.
After getting my hair done, I headed back over to see PBLKN to teach and visit with some of my faves!
Since I’m on the topic of teaching, I knew I was going to be teaching a class to the Prince playlist to some of my coworkers so I made sure to find appropriate attire when I was at my parent’s for Mother’s Day.
Oh, you don’t have outfits like this just hangin’ around?
I’m pretty sure my Mom has saved every dance costume that I have ever worn…and luckily this one still fit.
A few weeks ago I had purchased new headphones to make my running experience more enjoyable. Last Saturday I went to Conestee Park, which is about 10 minutes away from where I live to go for a run.
Stopping for a moment to snap a pic.
They may not make me run faster, but definitely stay in the zone much longer.
I’m heading home in a couple of weeks and can not wait to see my little babies…
Can’t wait to meet you Faith Samantha & Chase Anthony…and see you again Madison Brooke!
