April 29, 2017

I’ve been asked to do a Mother’s Day round-up blog post, and you ask; you shall receive!!!

Tickets HERE, and they’re $35/person for 21+, $25 ages 3-20, and children under 2 are free.

Slice Pie Company…I love pie. That’s just a fact. If mom loves pie too, Kristen can ship either the apple or pecan pie to her…make sure to order by May 7th if you need it shipped! If you’re local to Raleigh, you can still order next week. Use the code MDAY17 when you email her at for 10% off your order.

Mother’s Day brunch at the Brawley Estate…There will be a southern brunch and dessert buffet by La-Tea-Das catering Sunday from 11-1 and 2-4! You will get a complimentary family photo and gift for mom included in ticket price. Adults are $35/ticket and children under 8 are $18. Buy HERE.

Massage Works Charlotte is offering $20 off for massage gift certificates! Head to the website to get the deal and book the appointment! Ask for Christine Martin!

Chrissy’s Custom Creations…Chrissy has so much stuff to offer on her facebook page, that you’ll need to take a few minutes to scroll through it!

About Me

About Me

Hey Peeps!

I'm Miranda, and I'm formerly lots of things (I sold dumpsters, fro-yo, and car parts to name a few), but most recently I was a cakery owner of Got What It Cakes. I'm a mom of two daughters whom I call my "minis,” and the wife to Joshua, whom I call "Stud" (yes, he's even in my phone under that name). Most days you can find me oversharing about my insane life on my InstaStories, in a segment I call "carpool confessions." Follow along as I decide what to be when I grow up, while I navigate my other love, the queen city of Charlotte! I also tend to go by "Mayor Miranda," and am awaiting my key to the city ;) Read More

xo, Miranda
