This week’s post is a little last minute… but I think you’re going to love it!
On Friday, I went to a blogging/media event at the new Baked Bear in Gilbert! One of my blogger friends whom I go to school with, invited me to come & I was stoked, because obviously, FREE ICE CREAM. We spent some time wandering around downtown Gilbert before going to the event & I never realized how cute it was! There are so many picture opportunities & lots of murals. Also, lots of cute restaurants! We went to a fish taco place & it was super yummy. If you live in AZ or are ever visiting, it’s a must-see!
The event was for local Arizona bloggers & media to come & try the ice cream & then talk about it! (This is why I love what I do so, so much.) I had been to The Baked Bear before & it never disappoints. It’s an ice cream sandwich shop where you get to build your own! They have cookies, brownies & sometimes even donuts for the “bread” part, & then all the different ice cream flavors you could imagine! I’m honestly such a kid when it comes to that stuff & always choose something like cake batter or cookie dough, but they have basic flavors & more sophisticated flavors too. They have toppings as well, & you can have it heated up, which I always prefer because it makes it a little easier to eat because the sandwiches are huge!
The new shop is located in SanTan Village in Gilbert at: 2206 E. Williams Field Rd. #118. They have shops located all throughout Arizona.
This event was a great reminder to me about why I do what I do. Some days I get really discouraged & comparison starts to creep up on me & I feel like I’ll never get to where I want to be. But this is a reminder to pursue your passions & reach out, put yourself out there, because sometimes the best things come of it. (like free ice cream) 😉
