Epic Gymnastics Birthday Party Was Epic


So this weekend? Pretty much perfect, because we celebrated a very special little girl. My little girl! Who isn't so little anymore. She's FOUR.  If you want to get technical, she won't be four until this Thursday, March 28th, at 2:27 pm, but we celebrated with her party and her girlfriends over the weekend. On her actual birthday, she'll bring cupcakes into her preschool class, and we'll go to one of her favorite restaurants for dinner, but it'll be super low key because Friday the Easter Bunny is coming (he's making a special early delivery because the bunny and I are tight like that) and then we fly to sunny Florida bright and early Saturday morning.  Busy, busy.


But back to this weekend. Clay and Narls had some errands to run, so my girl and I had an extra special lady date filled with shopping and pampering and eating and partying. We hit up Starbucks for an americano and a hot cocoa, then Target for a fancy new birthday dress.


Next I took her to my salon where she got serious big girl treatment, complete with a new hairstyle and a hot pink mani, and we followed this up with a mommy daughter lunch at the OG to get our unlimited soup, salad, and breads on.  We took a bunch of selfies, giggled at our waiter, and talked about things. All sorts of things. I got a look at my future with my daugther, years and years of lunch dates and salon trips and talks, and it makes me deliriously happy. She makes me happy.


THEN IT WAS TIME FOR HER PARTAY. Em changed into her leotard and she and her six best girlfriends (and her brother, we can't forget about him ♥) tumbled, rolled, jumped, and laughed to their hearts' content. I may have even busted out a toe touch or two from my cheerleading days. 


We finished the party with cupcakes and presents and goodie bags filled with everything you'd need for a successful day at the gym: water bottle, headbands, a medal, and a snack. It was a wonderful day and my birthday girl enjoyed every minute of it.

  3. OH my! Looks like she had so much fun. Your mommy daughter date sounds fabulous. And her hair is adorable. Was she good getting her hair and nails done? I've wanted to take Bell to the salon, I just don't know how well she'll sit there.

    1. She was! We paint her nails a lot at home, so she knows she has to be still and careful while the polish drys and she's really good at that. I think her knowing that helped a ton at the salon.

    1. Thank you! When I was pregnant with my son, who is six now, his name was going to be Emerson if he was to be a girl. Two years later when I was pregnant again, Emerson was still our top pick for a baby girl. I love that name :)

    1. Our babies need to slow the growing just a bit (because if they do, then we get to, too).
