Girl Power Sport GIVEAWAY!

The power to play. The power to change. The power to thrive.
Psst! There is a giveaway at the end!!

Today I am SO excited to share one of our most favorite gymnastics companies!! It’s called Girl Power Sport , its local to us {in Washington State}. I am confident once I introduce you to them you will love them as much as we do!

ggps4We first became acquainted with them after Gabbi last year and immediately fell in love with their company and mission! Not only do they have the cutest leotards check out how cute this USA Swing Top and #GIRLPOWER capris leggings are! Oh SWOON over this team USA red star jacket!! This outfit will be absolute perfection on the 4th of July!ggps3

Fun Fact: Girl Power Sport is made in the USA and proceeds from every sale goes to charity!

Girl Power Sport also specializes in beautiful and unique fabrics that you don’t see with other companies!

One such fabric is the ridiculously adorable Gym Cat Leotard! Gabbi loves cats so of course it has become one of her favorite leotards and the fact that one cat is doing a back handspring it the CUTEST!

Not only is this leotard the cutest darn thing I’ve ever seen, it’s so incredibly well made! Quality is the most important thing when I buy my daughter leotards, honesty too often we buy Gabbi leotards and they fit great in the torso but are so darn baggy everywhere else that they just look ridiculous! Girl Power Sport has done a fantastic job on their leotard cut!

Generally Gabbi is not a fan of leotards with more one fabric…she hates the seams, but this Girl Power Sport leotard is different! The seam between the kitty fabric and the pink fabric on the sides is very soft and she doesn’t even notice it! Also the pink fabric is shiny, often times that means that the inside of the fabric is rough, this fabric is not!

Guys we are absolutely loving this leotard and cannot wait to get her more, in fact…

There are so many GP SPORT lovelies on Gabbi’s wishlist:

A bit about Girl Power Sport:

Girl Power Begins!  As a mompreneur, I wanted to create a company that encourages girls to be strong, active and goal driven.  I was born with a heart defect that limited my activity level.  After a number of heart surgeries, I set a goal to have an active lifestyle. So far, I have beat the odds and have run 21 marathons and 1 50k.  I want my children to learn the importance of hard work and perseverance on the field as an athlete as well as all aspects of their lives. I have used coaching as a way to encourage and impart the things I have learned that ultimately, you can overcome the odds. Through dance, gymnastics and sports, girls learn to be assertive, work as a team and test their abilities and strength. In the words of Shalane Flanagan, “Keep your head up, keep your heart strong,” I want girls who wear my products to feel pride, feel assertive, feel the sense of team and above all, feel they can beat the odds while maintaining a sense of kindness for others.

We are thrilled to be collaborating with Girl Power Sport to giveaway a Gym Cat leotard to one lucky winner!

ggps

We are going to do this giveaway old school!! Entering is easy!

Yep it’s that easy!

This giveaway will run until March 20th and I will select a winner using random.org

I want to extend a HUGE Thank You to Lisa at Girl Power Sport for the adorable leotard!

*Although GPS did send a leotard for partnering with them I was not compensated or persuaded to write anything I do not mean-  All thoughts + opinions are 100% my own.

Heart Month Fundraiser from Lizatards

Remember earlier this month when I shared the awesome fundraiser my friends over at Lizatards are having? In case you missed it I wanted to share it once more before February comes to an end!

February is Heart Health/ Heart Disease Month and chances are we have all been effected by it in one way or another.  It’s horrible to watch someone suffer especially a child.

IMG_6822We are blessed and so thankful that our children have not had to spend countless days, months or even years in the hospital, but that is not the case for some of our friends. Two families we know both have sons with extreme heart conditions and have spent most of their lives in the hospital, had countless appointments and surgeries, some good, some not so good. We’ve watched helplessly as their children suffer unable to do anything and SO thankful for the doctors and nurses to are helping.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts Lizatards is not only our fave but they are always giving back! This month in honor of Heart Health they are doing an amazing fundraiser the proceeds will go to the Children’s Heart Institute. When I heard about this Fundraiser I wanted to share it with the world…so that’s what I’m doing!

Right now you can get this amazing long sleeve burnout {thin yet cozy fabric} for $10 with the proceeds going to families who need it! The Heart with Wings shirt comes in three great colors

This isn’t just a cute shirt, there is actually a very emotional story behind this sweet design. This heart with wings was drawn by Brittany a sweet 14 year old girl who died from a heart condition.

Please help these families by the supporting this amazing cause and the Children’s Heart Institute.

Arcade and the Triple T Token!

book

We ABSOLUTLEY love this book! Not only is it pretty much perfect for my nine year old son, but guys its written by Rashad Jennings former NFL running back and Liberty University alumni, now I realize that may not be as big of a deal for you as it is for my kids, but the Liberty University aspect is HUGE in our house…why? My husband is also a Liberty University alumni and all our children plan to attend!! Not an NFL fan or don’t know much about Liberty University, but still thinking the name Rashad Jennings still sounds familiar? Well, there is a reason why, he was on Dancing with the Stars and won!

From the Publisher:

Eleven-year-old Arcade Livingston has a problem. Several, actually. The Tolley twins, a.k.a. neighborhood bullies, are making Arcade’s move to a new city even harder than it needs to be. They expect him to do their research papers and interactive displays for the sixth-grade career expo’s theme: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Besides doing their work, Arcade doesn’t even know his own answer to that question.

Then at the library—Arcade’s favorite place to chill—a mysterious old woman gives him a golden arcade token that grants him a unique gift. A gift that allows him to time travel between different places including his own future. From sitting in the dugout with Babe Ruth, to hanging on to the back of a bucking bull, to performing life-saving surgery on a dog, Arcade has no shortage of adventure! Together with his older sister, Zoe, Arcade explores life’s biggest thrills and challenges, and the two also have a big mystery to solve. Who is the rightful owner of the incredible Triple T Token that leads to such astounding adventures?

Arcade’s circle of friends begins to widen as the Triple T Token hangs from his neck. Pulsing. Beckoning another adventure. The question for Arcade, Zoe, and their new friends is no longer, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” It’s, “Where will we go next?”

Today I thought it would be fun to have my guy write the review so with out further ado here you go…From my 9yo son Simon: “I really like this book! Arcade is a cool name. Arcade loves the library and one day he meets a mysterious person and gets a cool token like the ones at the arcade but it isn’t for games its magic and takes him to different times and places. Arcade and Zoe do all kinds of really fun cool stuff, and the bullies get put in their place, I like that because I don’t like bullies who push people around. I think you would like this book and your son needs it, if you have a girl she will like it too. I love reading it with my dad. I want to go to Liberty like my dad and Rashad!”

Guys, its like this book was written specifically for him! It has been incredibly difficult to find a book series that is right for our little man but we have now! Fun Fact book 2 comes out right after Simon and his twin sisters birthday!!!

I highly recommend this book to anyone…boys, girls, parents, grandparents…seriously its great!

Thank you to Booklook Bloggers for the opportunity to read and review this book!

*My promise to you: I always share my photos that I have taken, not only because I prefer them over stock photos but honestly so you can see that I actually have the book I am reviewing. I want to share my real true thoughts and having the actual book is crucial in doing so.

Heart Health Month Fundraiser

February is Heart Health / Heart Disease Awareness Month. Let be honest here chances are you are someone who has been effected by heart disease or you know someone who has. It’s horrible to watch someone suffer especially a child.
