Last year we had this huge pool party for my daughter. (Like 80 people) It was a mess from start to finish and almost turned tragic when my niece grabbed onto the birthday girl when she realized she forgot her water wings and drifted to the deep end. Yeah, it was bad. So this year we decided to do something simple. We are going bowling!!!! No clean up, not inviting everyone and their siblings just my daughter and a few, okay 20 of her friends. With all of the chaos after Spring break, testing, basketball practice, soccer, and play dates, I realized I am behind on this planning stuff. I have 2 days to get decorations, cake, and favors!!!! She loves nail polish and glitter so I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration. Here’s what I am loving so far. What’s your favorite?
This has been on my mind for a while now and I am finally putting it into action. I have been hesitant about speaking at events that were not my own. Maybe it was fear or maybe just waiting for the right opportunity. I am happy to say that after my guest panel appearance last month at the Women’s Impact Conference, I realized that it is time to step out and spread the mission of Sporty Mommas. Am I nervous? Heck Yeah! Am I going to back down? Not anymore! It is time to step out on faith and just do it!!!!! Here’s to making it happen one step at a time.
Be YOU, Be GREAT, Be FABULOUS
We had a great Spring Break with the kiddos. We enjoyed 4 theme parks, bumped into old friends and got to experience two resorts. The Cabana Bay Beach Resort on Hollywood Studios’ property was really cool. They had a bowling alley, game room and cafeteria on site. It was affordable and very clean. The kids are already planning the next trip. The best part was seeing how happy the kids were. My youngest is finally old enough to ride the real rides lol. Now it’s back to the grind. Only 9 weeks left of the school year and boy I cannot wait until Summer!
I have a confession. I do not like working out. Okay I like it, I just don’t make enough time in my schedule to get it done. The other day while trying on clothes in Nordstrom I realized that it is really time to make a serious change. The clothes fit but I know they could fit better. So today I am starting over. I am going to set a new goal and stick with it. If you need a push too, let me know. Operation drop 10 is in effect. Let’s get it!
When I planned our Sporty Mommas Connect meet up, I had no idea it was International Women’s Day until my mom pointed it out. Even though I got sick last night, I knew I had to keep our meet up. I am so glad I did. SM Connect is a small group of Mommas in business that support and learn from each other. We know what it is like to be busy moms with dreams of our own. On this lazy Sunday afternoon we came together to catch up, reflect on our first quarter of 2015 and have a nice time. (Don’t forget the wine) I am so proud of these ladies for all that they have accomplished. I know the best is yet to come!
Be YOU, Be GREAT, Be FABULOUS!
The first Sporty Mommas Collection was created with love to inspire women to be ourselves. To embrace all of our imperfections and to learn to rock what we have. We often compare ourselves to other women instead of claiming our own greatness. You will see that the butterfly is used as a symbol of transformation. As women and mothers, we travel through this journey of life (and it is not always easy) striving to be the best we can be. So let your soul rise above all self doubt, trials and tribulations because like the butterfly you were born to rise.
No matter what; Be YOU, Be Great, Be Fabulous!
Yesterday I was so excited to meet up with a few Miami Fems and have a fun girl’s night out. After a long day with the kiddos (H.W. making valentines, shower and dinner) I put on my stilettos and headed out. Scooped up my friend D and we were on our way. It was a serious buzz in the theater’s bar and lounge. Everyone was so pumped up to see this movie. A friend of a friend rented out the theater so imagine 90 ladies at 10 p.m. It was bananas! The lights went out the movie started and well…… about an hour into the movie I nodded off. My friend V was checking her watch every ten minutes. After 2 long hours of sitting in this movie we all came out disappointed. The hype, the actors, the whole movie was just blah. So I know you have to see it for yourself. Besides you read all of the books, you gotta see the movie. Don’t say I didn’t warn you though!
Yesterday was a little preview of our new Be YOU, Be GREAT, Be FABULOUS collection and I am so happy to share that it was a hit! We spent the afternoon with the lovely ladies of Honey Shine Inc. for their annual Valentine’s Bazaar. This year they had over 10 vendors and treats for members and prospective members to enjoy. I love Honey Shine and all that they do for young girls in S. Florida. To learn more visit honeyshine.org!

I can ask over and over where is the time going but we all know the answer it is rolling. I am a few weeks away from my Be YOU, Be GREAT, Be FABULOUS launch and I am feeling the crunch. You ever work on something and you want it to be just right? It is definitely consuming my thoughts these days. I really hope you all love and connect with this collection as much as I do. It is truly created with love.
Have a fabulous day!
Yesterday I enjoyed a great morning with the lovely ladies of Femfessionals. We discussed vision boards and the power of positive thinking. I have created a vision board for the past 2 years but it wasn’t until last year that I realized how powerful they are. If you haven’t created a vision board for 2015, give it a try. If you don’t know where to start, just start browsing pictures and cut out things that you would like to see in your future. A new ride, some fancy clothes, new friends, a handsome man, lol whatever your heart desires. Here is a clip from a woman who has an amazing story, Mrs. Lucinda Cross. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2c8vMO71ND8 Learn more about femfessionals here.
