Carytown Celebrities

What a beautiful day in Richmond! We started out the day with some DELICIOUS cake based donuts from locally owned and operated Dixie Donuts. We got a dozen gourmet donuts for $10, including flavors such as chocolate toffee, pb and j, peanut butter crunch, and dulce de leche. My personal favorite being the dulce de leche, layered in a yummy salted caramel topping. While I was impressed with their baking, the employees behind the counter were impressed with something completely different, my adorable puppies! Kyoto and Bella were such celebrities that they had their picture taken for "Customers of the Week"! I can't wait to share the picture with you all when it is posted :) 

On that note, Kyoto's surgery went flawlessly, and he is currently curled up on my lap in recovery. Unfortunately he has to wear the "cone of shame" for the next 10 days! He is miserable about this of course. 

After our trip to Carytown, since it was such a nice day, we decided to walk to the outdoor market only a few blocks from our apartment complex. We went to the 17th Street Farmers' Market expecting to find lots of vegetables. Instead we found vegetables, fruits, soaps, jewelry, scarves, and so much more. I wish we had got their sooner because some of the venders were beginning to pack up their things when we arrived. The "vintage" market is tomorrow from 9AM-4PM, maybe I will just have to check this out!
