1st Place!

Yesterday, my team went to the Fairport Ultimate Cheer & Dance Competition. We didn't have to leave until 8:30, which was nice. I got to snuggle a little with Ella before I got ready and took off for the day. I get incredibly antsy the morning of competition and she was the perfect calming presence. 

I was pleased to find that my entire team arrived on time and we didn't have to do any emergency phone calls and stress about missing warm ups. This has happened before, many times actually. 

Once we arrived and warmed up, I got incredibly nervous. Not because they didn't warm up well, because they did. I just get NERVOUS before they go on. It's really hard to have to stand back there and watch them perform, knowing that everything is out of your hands now. If I could be on the mat with them, I'd be in a much better place. 

Once they performed, I knew they had it in the bag. They looked fantastic! The parents & other coaches all agreed. Easily their best performance of the season. I just had to wait five hours for awards to make it official. During that time, I watched JV & Varsity perform, chatted with the parents, and scoped out the competition. 

Once all of the girls were picked up, I headed to grab Ella! She had stayed home with her daddy all day long and couldn't wait to go out to dinner with the coaches. We hit up The Distillery with the coaches & we chowed down. 

 Jill just turned 21, so we had to have a drink! 

I DID NOT MAKE HEALTHY CHOICES DURING THIS MEAL. Instead, I indulged with a margarita, chicken wings, and green been fries. (If you've never had green bean fries, you must try them!) However, the good news is that I only had 1 margarita, 5 chicken wings, and half an order of green bean fries. I did things in moderation & will be back on track in no time. I rarely eat these things anymore. I've realized that I need to give myself permission to enjoy my favorite food every once in awhile. 

Ella wanted to get in on the action!
