Girl's Day Out


Mom's only birthday request for the past few years has been to have a girl's day out.  My twin sister, Mom and I spent the day drinking coffee, chatting, shopping, eating, laughing, and catching up.  We celebrated with cake and ice cream. Mom had the ice cream (a chocolate dip cone) and we ate cupcakes. We visited a little cupcakery I've been dying to check out. It took us forever to choose one (I think the lady behind the counter was about to give up). Not to brag, but my cupcake was the tastier one, called Cheeky Monkey: fresh banana cake with caramel cream cheese frosting, candied pecans and caramel drizzle. Oh, MY! So good. My sister had Lemon Drop: zesty lemon cake with lemon curd and lemon cream cheese frosting. The day went by too fast but it we enjoyed every minute of it! :D

What would your perfect day out look like?

P.S. I have a surprise for you tomorrow. It involves a vlog and singing. Eeep!

  11. Cupcakes are my most favorite thing in the whole world. That lemon one looks goooood. I'm not a banana fan, but I'm sure yours was tasty, too!

    And I'm jealous you have a twin sister. I want a sister!

    1. Banana would never be my first pick either, but the lady recommended it and I was so glad she did! You want a sister? Then I hearby dub thee as our twister (twin + sister = twister). I'm so corny. *sigh*

  12. I wish. I wish. I wish I owned a CupCakery! Where I would bake cuppycakes all day long, while singing a cupcakey song, sharing caked cups with names like... *Cheeky Monkey*, *Lemon Drops*, and *Leave Your Bra At Home*! Oh, I would be good at THAT job!

    I loved hearing about your girls day out, Catherine! Your smiling family is the frosting on the cake!
