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…

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

But I think there are ways…

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! They haven’t found one that they don’t absolutely try to binge watch if we let them. Which is why this new place,…

About a year or so ago, I published THIS BLOG POST about my results from using a Rodan + Fields product called Lash Boost.

Update: Read until the end where I answer some follow-up questions I received after I first posted this! xo Every time I talk about this topic on my Insta-stories or with my friends in person, I get the same comment over and over again, and it’s always something along the lines of “I thought I was dying when I saw…

My staycation at The Dunhill was packed with perfection!

I don’t tend to use the word “perfect” all that much! Perfection is hard to come by, let’s be honest. All of the stars have to align, and they sure did a few weekends ago when I stayed at The Dunhill for a little staycation!

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
