What Is Inside Gideon's Bakehouse?



I was sold at giant cookies as big as my hand.

I knew when we visited Disney Springs that we'd be stopping by Gideon's Bakehouse. This is the place where the giant cookies live. 

The line wasn't horrible when we showed up. It was about 30 minutes. My daughter was not thrilled to have to wait 30 minutes.

"For cookies?" she grumbled.

"For magical cookies," I answered. She doesn't have a sweet tooth like I do. 

Sometimes the line can be two hours. But then they do a virtual line and they tell you when to come back. 

You are given a menu as you wait. Special cookies and cakes are switched out each month. 


I am told the Peanut Butter Nitro Cold Brew is fantastic. Sadly, I do not like coffee so I passed on this. 

The outside looks neat:



And it's even better on the inside. Oh, and yes, it smells amazing. You can also get giant cake slices but I was there for the cookies. If I lived nearby, I'd so get a cake slice. I hear they are incredible. There is a whimsical vibe going on in the store and I felt like I was in a room at the Addams Family house. 




Check out some of the delicious options:




We ended up with a peanut butter crunch:



The cookies and cream:



And 2 Chocolate chips:



Final verdict? The chocolate chip cookie is where it's at. And yes, it's HUGE so it can last you two days. But only one if you're PMSing like I was. I have no regrets. 

I would get the other flavors again though because they were also scrumptious. Natalie gobbled down the cookies and cream and understood why we had waited thirty minutes for cookies. She apologized for the whining. 

So yes, we'll be going again the next time we're at Disney Springs. (And I'm told there's another location nearby the Disney Springs one that is usually less crowded if you don't want to wait around.)



Have you been to Gideon's Bakehouse yet?

Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.


HEY, IT'S OKAY....


.....to be going to Howl-O-Scream at SeaWorld this weekend. There are haunted houses, frightening trails, and scare actors roaming around when it gets dark. 


.....to have showed Natalie the movie Edward Scissorhands for the first time over the weekend. She loved it. She thought it was sweet that Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder dated in real life and was even more amused when she found out Johnny got a tattoo that said Winona Forever and changed it to Wino Forever when they broke up. 


.....to be getting my grays colored this week. I always know when it's time when my blunt son with autism tells me I have "so many grays." 


.....to be glad Tommy is enjoying going to his college campus for the first time since he started community college last fall. It's only one class, but he's hoping it'll be all in the spring. 


.....to love the show Gilmore Girls so of course I had to pick up some makeup from the collection at Ulta Beauty. I did not get it all because I have pesky little things called bills to pay, but I'm happy with what I got. Yes, one of the lipstick colors is called Vicious Trollop and fans of the show will recognize the name. Most are still available online if you wanted to purchase your own. My daughter and I are huge fans of the show.

My Daughter As The Scary Rake Creature

Ah, Spirit Halloween. You can find so many cool things in the store. My daughter Natalie has always been drawn to the frightening decor and costumes. So when she saw a costume called The Rake, she was intrigued. 




Mind you, she's going to be Sarah from Hocus Pocus for Halloween. But she always likes to have a creepy costume on stand by. 




The Rake is pretty creepy. Apparently it's a creature that lives in the woods. 



In our case, it roams the neighborhood.



My daughter truly did walk around the neighborhood in this. She had several cars slow down. One guy looked like he might have taken a photo with his phone. I mean, heck, I'd do the same and post it to FB being like, "WTF is going on in the neighborhood?" 



Natalie says it's a comfortable costume. It's size XL and it's considered a children's costume but she can still squeeze into them. She has startled me multiple times while wearing this. 




If your child also wants to creep you and the neighborhood out, the package looks like this in Spirit Halloween. It is $39.99 but you can get a 20% off coupon by entering the Miraculous Sweepstakes on the website. 




Do you like scary costumes?
