Social Bites, and Sips

I solemnly swear that today's post will not make your skin crawl, incite the urge to locate garden tools, or make you want to test your shotguns. Swear. This is a sweet post. A post so sweet you may need to head downtown to Ruston's newest sweet spot, Social Bites.  

Baylor, in a costume...again.

When the temps reach the 100 degree mark I'm pretty much done as far as outdoor activity goes. I loathe the heat, especially when I'm chasing after two girls and toting a baby.  But anyone with kids knows that you just can't stay home all summer. Boredom set in and Harper began to bounce off the furniture. Literally.  After my fifth demand to "Stop Jumping!!" and "No, we can't watch the bee movie again," I knew adventure was needed.

Thus, I declared it "Princess Day" at Social Bites.

An older couple was seated in the high back chairs facing the door when we walked in. "Where've ya'll been?" they asked.  "Nowhere," I replied, straight faced. "This is what a mom of three does when boredom sets in. This IS the destination." No response.

With probably seven different flavors, you are sure to find a cupcake that suits your tastebuds.  Harper chose chocolate, Baylor got strawberry, and I picked Red Velvet. Mine was the best. I know because I tasted all three, and had two cups of the most amazing lemonade EVER!! I know that it won't suit everyone, but I thought it was very refreshing. Let me know if you like it!

Gotta love the throwback straws!! They make the whole affair special.

I totally love this shot of Baylor, just hate that it's out of focus.  I'm learning. Still trying to get off "Auto."

The colorful decor adds a festive feel to the quaint shop. It's the perfect place to stop in when the sweet tooth attacks.  I also like the fact that the shop is staffed by family.  I met "The Mama" and she treated my kids like they were her own.  Gotta love that!

I'm off to a quiet weekend. Had a
slooowwww garage sale. Still have a few items if anyone needs Christmas decor, an awesome farm table, a small desk and a church pew. Happy Weekend!

Check back next week for Princess Day at Social Bites with friends! Woohoo!


  1. Love this! Looks like y'all had a great time. For the record, I tried the cinnamon cupcake and the lemonade, and they were both awesome.

    As for the weather, heat like this makes me want to stay inside with all the lights off and just consume popsicles, sno balls, and ice cream all day long.

    1. I feel ya! I feel like I've lost my memory when it comes to dinnertime because I don't want to eat anything that will make me hot. I never know what to cook! Our lights are off and popsicles are long gone!

  2. Do you have any pictures of the church pew? My sister in Longview, TX might be interested!


  3. I can totally relate to everything about this post- 100 degree temps, 2 little girls and a baby on my hip, and staying close to the house but going nuts along with my girls when they get bored. Glad I am not alone.
    And glad you found a fun outing for them :)
