Etc, etc

Yes please. I'll take all three (there are two more color combinations in the shop). You can find these mini longboards over at www.ofonesea.com

Also, lola has been nominated as a finalist in limeapple's inspiring girl awards. If you go to their website - www.limeapple.ca - and click on their blog, you'll find a place to vote for her. Please do. She has earned it.

risky bidniss

photo taken with my phone

today we took a risk in switching gyms and it was worth it. lola bean is happy and that's my number one priority. Too many times parents of athletes make decisions based on what they want and not the needs of the child. I see it all the time in gymnastics. Here's a funny statistic: 99% of mothers of daughters in gymnastics, were gymnasts themselves, which in my opinion just strengthens my theory that the psycho moms i meet on a daily basis are living their gym fantasies through their kids. harsh? Maybe.. but true. and sad. However, that being said, I roll with a small crew of gym moms who aren't psycho, you were gymnasts as kids, and who always put their daughters needs first. it's a solid thing to see.

And on a completely different note, I saw this quote (not too sure who it's from, if you do, please let me know so I can give credit) and I love it. 

"The question is what are you going to do with your time. What drives you. Greatness is a lot of small things done well. Day, after day. Workout after workout. Obedience after obedience. Day after day."

flash mob

Check it out friends: One of my favorite athletic wear brands for kids and youth, limeapple, is having a flash sale next Wednesday, October 15th to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving and Oktoberfest. This one day event will have everything 50% off. Not only is it a great way to stock up on basics, it's an awesome way to kick off some early Christmas shopping.

It will truly be a shop for the whole family --> things for the ol' man, ol' lady, and kiddos, as well things for your haus. get ready.

on point

carmen just passing the time with yoga while lola is at gym. and I never thought I would ever say this but I'm loving yoga. I don't know why I had such an aversion to it in the past but somehow there is a place for me (and my kiddos) in it. More about that soon.
