Anniversary Giveaway #2: SweetArt Cupcake Giveaway (Local)

One of the things that we were picky about at our wedding was our wedding cake. We wanted it to be excellent, and neither of us is a huge cake fan. But we found a lady that did a great job and we were so proud of the way both of our cakes looked and tasted. Unfortunately, the last time I tried to find her, I ran into a dead end. Apparently, she is out of business.

Recently, though, I found a local baker who does every bit as good a job if not better.
Buttercream with chocolate strawberries and gumpaste cards and chips

SweetArt Bakery is located in the old flour mill just outside of downtown McKinney. I love her shop. It has so much character, and her kitchen is right there on site. The Mill is going to be open for special events beginning in March of 2011. I will definitely keep that in mind when I need a place to host an event because it’s a great setting and having such a great bakery on site would be super helpful.

Right now, SweetArt Bakery is running a special sale – 10 cupcakes for $10 on 10-10-10. My crew was able to sample some of the cupcakes tonight, and let me tell you they are Uh – MAZ – ing!!

I told you we aren’t big cake fans, but Joey went back for seconds . . . I devoured mine . . . and my boys were begging for more. The cake part was moist, fluffy and full of flavor. I can’t imagine how good the spice, strawberry, spice, lemon, dark chocolate, and banana would be.



Buy 10 cupcakes for 10 dollars on 10-10-10 ONLY! Go here and place your order now. You won’t be able to order after October 7th.

And you can win a set of 10 cupcakes right here. Please note the unusual ending time and the need to respond quickly so that we can get your order in time to be ready by 10-10! 


**This giveaway is only open to those readers who are close enough to pick up their cupcakes in downtown Mckinney on October 10.**

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
