What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
Get a donut at Duck Donuts. Don’t hate me for this, but I’m not really the biggest donut fan. (I know, I know, first I tell you I’ve never read Harry Potter and now this. I will accept the bad blogger award, hand it over). I don’t not like donuts, I just won’t go out of my way for one, because, meh.
But these donuts. They made me think that maybe I’d never had a real donut before. Because these are my new favorite things in the world. They make them to order, so they’re hot and delicious and really just straight up magical.
I had a glazed and a maple bacon donut. And I have no pictures of those because I inhaled them in about three seconds.
If you think I will not find some made up reason to visit The Outer Banks again, with these donuts being the real reason, you do not know me.
Get an acai bowl from The Spot.
I have The Spot to thank for awakening my acai bow obsession. They were absolutely delicious, and on top of that, it was the cutest little place. Be still, my hippie heart.
Get lunch at The Bad Bean.
More specifically: Get the pork belly jalepeno popper eggrolls and whatever margarita special they have, because they use fresh fruit. I had a watermelon one and it was mostly blended watermelon, no fake syrupy stuff. It was so refreshing and delicious. And I’m still dreaming about those eggrolls. My mouth is watering just typing about them, no joke.
Go to the beach.
I love me some Florida, but I adored this beach. It was beautiful. And trust me, after you eat all that food, you’re gonna need to lay down somewhere. Might as well be on this gorgeous beach.
Have you been the The OBX? I’m obviously going back for the donuts, so if you have anything I should add to my list, let’s hear it!
