How to make easy olive pizza with two ingredient dough!

  Springtime means amazing weather, cookouts, Easter, time with friends and family, and so much more! But it also means that summer is right around the corner, or AKA, the countdown to bathing suit season…ugh! Have you ever heard the saying “summer bodies are made in the winter”? Well, mine is made year-round, but I feel the pressure to undo…

I’m an ambassador for WHO?!!!

Don’t worry; this isn’t getting political! 🙂 I saw a post on IG recently that said, “looking for ambassadors for our clothing brand, Makaila James…apply here!” (or I’m paraphrasing…go with it) I LOVE Makaila James, and their owner Monica, so much! I met her when my bestie’s company’s booth (Bonita Pina) was put next to Monica’s two Christmas shows ago!…

Are you ready for a house update?! (part 3)

Are you ready for a house update?! SO.AM.I! 😉 But the truth of the matter is, there kind of isn’t one! {INSERT INTERNAL FREAK OUT} People keep asking me, “how’s the house coming along?!” Because the last update was that the lot was already being graded, was moving quickly, and we were ready to start the permit process. So we…

No more “mommy juice” or “wine o’clock,” I beg you.

I wrote this post years ago, and was optimistic that things had actually gotten better in the mommy wine culture “war,” as it was being less talked about, and I was seeing less memes, etc in the last year or so. THEN COVID-19 HIT. And online schooling. And quarantine. And isolation. You get the point. And all of the sudden…

We’re moving…to a HOUSE??? (part 2)!

If you missed part 1, HERE it is! Go read it first 🙂 So where did we leave off?! Oh yes… Annnnnnnnd, the plot thickens!!! I tell Joshua about this, and wasn’t sure what he thought. Hell, I wasn’t sure what I thought about it. But at least it was an option. Is it our “dream neighborhood”? No. I’m currently…

We’re moving…into a HOUSE??? (part 1)

I know. I’m as shocked at the title as you are. 😉 And I promise I wanted to put an exclamation point at the end of it, but I’m not there yet (I will be…I know it)!!! Give me a hot minute 😉 But the truth is this…I never want to move out of the condo. I LOVE LOVE LOVE…

I hate the beach. There I said it.

It’s that time of year again! Nope, not referring to the end of school, although that is upon us too! I’m referring to the time of year when my minis are going to start asking us to go to the beach, and the stud and I, through gritted teeth, are going to say, “OF COURSE WE ARE SWEET CHILDREN! WE…

How Barry Manilow named me.

Hey girl hey! (And the occasional guy who wants to read my blog…possibly my husband, or George?!) Welcome to Miranda In Charlotte, and its very first blog post!!! Let’s address the name situation first. To everyone who has or does call me “Mandie,” you’re probably wondering who Miranda is? Well, it’s kind of complicated…thanks to Barry Manilow (oh, and my…

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
