our cross-country american road trip

It’s always been our dream to take our minis on a cross country road trip, Griswold-style, but our destination wasn’t Wally World! LOL! It was the Santa Monica Pier, specifically, they wanted to skateboard and roller skate on it. So we pointed our 4-Runner west, and took I-40 nearly the whole way! In this post, I’m going to outline the…

Summer must-haves on a budget

I’ve done the swimsuit post, and the cover-ups post; I’ve shared my favorite sangria recipe and the best salsa/dip in the world here! All are summer staples in our house, but there are a few random things that I’ve gathered along the way that are clutch during the summer months! And here in NC, these HOT months can span 6-8…

It’s delicious, holds it’s shape, quick and easy to make, and doesn’t need…

Hot Chocolate Bombs, my way!

Every year, there seems to be the newest, clever dessert “thing” around the holidays, and this year THE THING is hot chocolate bombs! I’ve seen them all over social media, and I thought to myself, ‘I can make those!’ I don’t drink coffee, or hot tea typically, so when I want a hot drink, hot cocoa is it! And listen,…

gift guide 2020: sephora haul

Okay, so beauty isn’t my thing. I mean, I love to make yall giggle during my “makeup tutorials,” where I try to do a full face of makeup using whatever product is left in my brushes.

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
