Gigi's Cupcakes for our very own Gigi

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Good news everyone... No one in my house is sick anymore!  (Knock on wood.)  Looks like everyone is on the mend and the health department did not show up to quarantine the Schwartz family.

Instead, we got to celebrate a milestone birthday last night!  My mom (Gigi) is in town this week and she turned 50 yesterday.  Whoop whoop!  This is the first birthday I have been able to celebrate with my mom in I don't know how long, so that was a real treat in itself.  Ryan enjoyed all the hoopla too and he was the cutest thing trying to say "happy birthday."

I had to work, but when I got home out came the presents, dinner, and cupcakes.  Speaking of cupcakes, we couldn't celebrate Gigi's birthday without Gigi's cupcakes.  Gigi's is a delicious bake shop that was even featured on the show Undercover Boss.  I loaded up on some cupcakes to surprise our very own Gigi.  Check out their website ( and see if there is a shop near you because they have two awesome fall cupcakes out right now; Pumpkin Spice Latte and S'Mores.  (You know they had me at Pumpkin Spiced Latte.)

We ended the night with a bang (trying to save a bunny rabbit from my dog in our backyard) and spent the night with the TV off, just chatting away.  I talk to my mom every single day on the phone, but nothing beats a face-to-face conversation with your mother.

Every Gigi needs her own tiara for her birthday!

To die for cupcakes.  Almost too pretty to eat.  Key word = almost.

Happy Birthday Gigi!
