Rookie Mom Challenge #8: Go Out for Just Dessert

Mother Daughter Outing for Dessert

This is the 31st challenge in the list of 52 weekly Rookie Moms Challenges, but I had to skip ahead because – let’s be honest – I was craving a cupcake.

Blake and I had just finished a great workout at The Dailey Method Barre Studio (their baby classes are such a good workout for mom and so entertaining for Blake) and instead of heading straight home and making myself a healthy smoothie – like the angel on my shoulder told me to – I listened to the little devil instead and pulled straight into Elizabethan Desserts.

Elizabethan Desserts is the cutest little dessert parlor in Encinitas. ย When you walk through the doors you feel like you just entered into a beautiful doll house – it’s decorated in bright turquoise and crisp white with pops of yellow flowers on each table. I could have sat in that shop all day – sipping tea and eating cupcakes.

I was so excited to show Blake the bright colors and the fun cupcakes displayed in the window, but when I went to take her out of her car seat, I realized the little darlin’ was fast asleep (guess she really did get a good workout in at our barre class). At least I got to take this cute picture of her in the over-sized turquoise chair.

Baby Outing

I ordered the coconut cream cupcake for myself and a mini red velvet cupcake for Blake. Don’t worry, I ate hers for her (the things we must do for our children). They were absolutelyย incredible!ย

All in all a very sweet mother daughter outing. And I can’t wait to make this a cute little tradition for Blake and I – mommy/daughter dessert dates at Elizabethan Desserts – sitting in the big turquoise chairs, sharing cupcakes and enjoying the make-believe ambiance. Perfect.

    • Yes, the little one was for Blake (but I ate it for her) ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes, you must go visit next time you’re in SD!

  1. I love everything about your cupcake outing… including that you ate Blake’s treat, too! The intended challenge to this challenge is to see if you and your husband can get a date night if you’re still too afraid of real babysitters. Is it uncool if I challenge you to get another dessert?
