Talk about a sugar rush.

The only two words that come to mind when thinking of how to describe this week's Austin adventure?  Sinfully delicious.  Yep, that'll do.  After lunch on Saturday, Kristen and I took Kameron to a popular donut stand called Gourdough's on South Lamar.  (Okay, as much as I would like to take credit for this one, it was actually Kameron who told us about Gourdough's and suggested that we pay a visit.  She's sort of brilliant, that girl.)

Each donut was a little less than five dollars, and we waited about ten minutes before our orders were ready, but it didn't take more than a few bites for us to realize that these things were well worth the wait (and the money).

[Yes, there's an actual donut underneath all of that chocolate.]

Miss Shortcake, Naughty & Nice, Razzle Dazzle...  These were just a few of the delectable combinations that we had to choose from—this place definitely offers something for everyone!  After a few moments of careful consideration, I was able to narrow it down to two that sounded the most appetizing to me:  PB&J and Heavenly Hash.  From the photo above, I'm sure you can guess which one I decided to go with.  And holy schnikes, was it heavenly.  Even if you're not a big donut fan, Gourdough's qualifies as one of those Austin-y things/places that everyone needs to experience at least once (or, you know, once a month).
