Time Out

After two full seasons of competitive gymnastics and placing top in the state for her level, Peyton has decided to take a timeout.  It’s a decision that we let her make.  We put Peyton in gymnastics because I noticed she had a natural ability.  I was right.    She was invited to try out for the team at 5 years old.  She not only made the team but was bumped up 2 more levels.  She would place first, 2nd or 3rd at all the competitions.  She was doing great.  So let me tell you why we decided to take a timeout.

Harper’s Hip Hop Hooray Party

My baby girl is 3 years old!  Every year I say I’m not going to have a party at my house… what do I do for the 3rd year in a row, have a party at my house.  Technically this was the after party.  We took the kids to an indoor play center to run like crazy and then we came back to the house to eat and celebrate.  I know, it’s a little bootleg but I was last minute putting this party together and I saved a ton of money.  Harper is a music lover and she loves when mommy is rapping.  I thought this theme would be perfect for her.  I wanted to put a girly twist on the Hip Hop theme.  My party planner,  Swanky Rose set everything up while we were at the play center.  Check out all the details.  Links to everything below.

This post is sponsored by Dr. Miracle’s.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

I’m still on a high from the Dr. Miracle’s Feelin Myself Weekend during the ATL stop for OTRII just a couple of weeks ago.   Dr. Miracle’s pulled out all the stops for 3 lucky winners and their guests for an action-packed Bey & Jay weekend.  During that weekend I had the opportunity to host an amazing conversation over a VIP dinner by Chef Shaw Osbey.  We talked about our healthy hair journeys as well as self-care.  I wanted to continue the healthy hair conversation online and share my favorite Dr. Miracle’s products as well as new additions to their collection.  Check out what’s in my bag.
