Try New Things

Sometimes I get stuck in a rut. Creatively, emotionally, and the worst: food-wise. You know what I'm talking about! When you go out to eat and you eat at the same restaurants, order the same thing, every single time. Blake and I are trying to get out and try new places more often (although, as easy as it sounds... it's actually pretty hard to break the habit of going to the usual spots!). First on our list was London Calling, which is a food truck, essentially. When passing by it all those times we were driving around, I would always see the huge red double decker bus, but never realized that that's where you eat! Both levels are open and have little booths and a barstools to sit at. It's seriously the cutest thing! I ordered the bangers and mash (mashed potatoes and sausage!) and it was delish. Going back soon and I'm determined to try everything (the pot pie sounds amazing!). 
Another new place we tried out actually just opened yesterday! It's a brand new 24-hour donut shop that's just a short walk from our apartment (dangerous!). They had SO many different flavors of donuts, so we ordered a half dozen (plus a maple & bacon long john!), to try here and there for the next few days. So far, I've tried the maple & bacon and red velvet. I'm really looking forward to the apple cider old fashioned donut! Mmmmhmmm!
I'm a fan.
Of both places.
I'm excited to keep going back and supporting these local businesses! It's always fun to discover a new favorite, so it's even better when you discover two new favorites!
Have you tried anything new to you lately? I'm always on the hunt for a new restaurant or new food to try (I'm a fat kid at heart and so is my husband!). Jess keeps talking about lavender everything at Elle's...so I'm thinking I'll need to go over there soon... it's been a while since my last visit!


  1. Oh girl, that lavender white hot chocolate is the best thing in my life. SO good! I can't wait to try London Calling and Hurts Donut (for the record, I will never call it just "Hurts"). I'm thinking this weekend is looking perfect!

  2. 24 hour donuts down the street? I would be in serious trouble.
