A Fun Mommy-and-Me Date: Visit Gigi's Cupcakes for the Fall Flavors

I am having one of those days where I realize that my children are growing up quickly. I am feeling sentimental about our special Mommy-and-Me Dates. In today's post, I want to share a quick idea for a fun Mommy-and-Me Date at Gigi's Cupcakes.  I recently visited the Gigi's Cupcakes in Park Village (Southlake, TX) with my boys to bond and create happy childhood memories.  Let me share a few photos and some fun conversation starters for a fun Mommy-and-Me Dates.

Let's start with the Fall menu.  We usually order a few different items so that we are able to share everything.  On our recent visit, we split two cupcakes and two cheesecakes. (Of course, Gigi's has generous portion sizes, so we even had leftovers that we brought home for Dad!)

The first photo shows two limited time flavors for fall - S'Mores and Pumpkin Spice. The S'Mores is my personal favorite because the frosting is so light, fluffy, and marshmallow-y.  (OK, so maybe marshmallow-y is not a word, but it should be because this is the most amazing frosting flavor!)  The Pumpkin Spice is similarly delicious and perfect for cold days like today when we want to enjoy the tastes of fall and create happy memories together.

The next photo shows two cheesecakes - the Peanut Butter Cheesecake and Original Cheesecake with Blueberries.  They also have a seasonal Vanilla Salted Caramel Cheesecake right now that looks amazing, but they ran out on our visit.  (That's actually something that I love about Gigi's - everything is so fresh.  They sometimes run out of flavors because they are constantly making fresh batches that sell out quickly. I've never had an "old" cupcake or cheesecake since they are careful about making everything so perfect.)   The cheesecakes were a big hit!  They were both good, but the Peanut Butter Cheesecake was clearly the winner with my children as they are obsessed with peanut butter.  

Finally, the best Mommy-and-Me dates include fantastic food and good conversations.  Here are a few conversation starters for you to use with your children:

  1. What was your favorite family vacation and why?
  2. What is your favorite thing about fall?
  3. What type of Christmas cookies should we bake for Santa this year?
  4. What are fun ideas of things to do over the winter break?
We love our Mommy-and-Me Dates that we take to Gigi's Cupcakes and hope that you have the opportunity to visit with your children too.  Whether you split a cupcake or go "Gilmore Girls style" and order several so that you are able to try a bit of each with leftovers, it's sure to create fun childhood memories!
