Glazed Doughnut Muffins

So right now I am getting ready to go to Girl's Camp! It's a camp put on by my church where you get to spend a week with girls who live in your neighborhood and go to the same church as you. I love it! I am so excited to be able to spend this week with my girls. They are so much fun to be with!
After this week of girl's camp, I'll be at band camp! That's a camp where we spend 4 days in the barren land of Delta. You get off of the bus and you see nothing, but blank space all around you in the dry desert air. We stay at the IPP power plant down there, and we sleep in the cafeteria and gym, and work from 7 am to 9 pm, with meals of course! We get pretty tan, and we get lots done! Last year that was the most tired I had been. Ever. It was pretty ridiculous how tired you could be! Your head hits the pillow and you immediately fall asleep, and wake up at 6 and get ready for another long day of working.

Anyway, that's where I'll be for the next two weeks! So I have some posts scheduled so y'all will stay entertained! :)

Anyway, here's the muffins!
