Cupcakes have healing powers

I received one of the most DELICIOUS cupcakes from a friend this past week


It was straight from Pint Size Bakery here in South City. It is a local shop with lots of yummy food for breakfast, a small treat, and coffee.


A small bakery that prides itself on using local products, and baking for the season. They bake in small batches to provide everything fresh and warm, also to help decrease the amount of wasted food. But there shouldn’t be too much waste from what I hear! There is usually a line every Saturday for their famous salted-caramel croissants. holy yum!

The cupcake I received was just the right amount of sweet, but not TOO sweet (if you know what  I mean)

I would definitely recommend them if you are in the St Louis area!

Now to find that croissant…….haha

Question for you:

Do you have a local bakery coffee shop you love?

– I have to say my all time favorite is Mike’s pastry shop, but it’s all the way in Frankfort, Michigan 😦

(I believe it is now called Crescent Bakery, but my family still calls it Mike’s. We have been for over ten years, why change now haha)

Father’s Day/Birthday party

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! I know Andrew and I are very proud of the men we have in our lives.

We started the day with the grocery store, and church. Followed by a few minutes at home, and a trip to visit Andrew’s dad.

But of course, I had to make Andrew’s cake, because we celebrated his birthday with my immediate family tonight as well. (it was a big night full of LOTS of food (even some doubles haha), presents, and cake!)

Andrew picked blue icing



There was also lots of wrestling


joking around…

It really was a great day. I wish the rain would have stayed away, my parents and I were going to go on a bike ride.

Question for you:
