Sponsored Post: Krispy Kreme

Believe it or not, our children have never been to Krispy Kreme.

We just eat pretty healthy, have never lived very close to one that we were aware of, and treats like this are pretty rare.

Also, despite the fad and hype of the new place opening in Tulsa, we aren’t really fans of Hurts, because icing and coloring aren’t our favorite part of a doughnut, making it too much for most of us.

So it’s been a long time since we had doughnuts!

And if we are going to do doughnuts, we might as well do it big!

We got a whole private tour of the factory where the potato flour mix is prepared and packaged, and the machinery in the store front, and then free hot doughnuts the children got to help make!

In their pajamas!


It was, by far, the best field trip ever.

I’m pretty sure I saw Mary’s eyes actually roll back in her head.



Thank you, Krispy Kreme!  The kids had a blast with such a special treat!  We loved the experience of watching doughnuts being made and getting to eat them warm!  It was still too much sugar for Mama, but our bellhop friend at the hotel was glad we hadn’t finished them off!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
