Cadbury eggs in a Donut nest!

FUN FACTS ABOUT ME: I love donuts I love mini cadbury eggs {I love lots of other foods that are bad for me, but we’ll focus on these two for now} So why not put them together, and make one of the best breakfast items known to (wo)man?!!! And also, let’s be honest, these could be a dessert as well,…

Room Reveals…Bathrooms

All pictures by The Beautiful Mess Photography Well. Let’s just start by saying I’m only slightly terrified to share everything else I did to the house with the public…maybe that’s why it’s taken me so long to type this one up?! See, I didn’t realize I’d break the internet with my first Room Reveal. Read it HERE first. And maybe…

New Year’s Eve hacks for parents of little ones!

Update: I clearly wrote this two years ago, so make sure you change the “2018”s to “2020”s! 😉 Since becoming a mom 13 years ago, New Year’s Eve has changed a bit, and in the last few years, we’ve gone to a hotel and rang in the new year with friends! But when our kids were younger, we always stayed…

Top five tips to be a good host or house guest!

‘Tis the season for having extra people stay at your house, or for you to be staying with others!

You’re doing Christmas all wrong.

Yes, you’re doing Christmas all wrong! Yikes. That sounds really harsh, right? But here’s the thing; we were doing it wrong too… UNTIL WE SAW THE LIGHT!!! I can’t remember where I first saw it; I can only assume Facebook? Or possibly Instagram? Doesn’t really matter, but I’m grateful I did, and I’m sure you’ve heard of it as well……

Is your kid obsessed with baking shows?!

Is your kid obsessed with baking shows?! SO IS MINE! Actually, both of my minis go gaga over any kind of baking show…from the Great British Baking Show to Nailed It, and from Sugar Rush to Cupcake Wars!

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
