Jyselle's World : Gymnastics!

Lalalalalalalala Jyselle's world! ( singing in an Elmo voice of course =) ) These days its her world and I'm just in it lol! I don't mind at all because my little girl is growing up! Almost 3 and now is in her very own tumble tykes gymnastics class! Last Friday was her trial class and she did amazing! So she is officially our little gymnast! She had so much fun getting dressed in her leotard and had no problem saying bye bye  to me as she joined the other little ones and of course I was a proud mommy looking on through the window and snapping a ton of pics n videos! don't worry I wont share them all just a few =) Afterwards she ate her packed lunch (pb n banana sandwich, raspberries n her favorite muffin ) in the car and we strolled through target and she got an icee for being such a good listener and back home for nap time, which she declared she was very tired from all the jumping! YES! Only 3 more months and boy boy will be ready for the mommy and me classes! My new favorite Friday mornings! Happy Weekend!

The perfect summer afternoon mocktail ! PLUS a quick garden update!

Summer is here!  and We've been enjoying days and nights by the pool. I recently made my sister and I this little mocktail , its so delicious and refreshing and bonus its zero calories! I call it my sparkling mojito mocktail! 3 ingredients that's it! If you make it you will love it I promise! Feel free to add liquor for the real thing when life calls for it =)

P.S our new Georgia urban garden is in FULL swing! so much is growing and I cant wait to start harvesting even more! Can you believe this is all in front of our apartment garage! Hubby built the planters for me, some are in buckets, coffee cans , and plastic containers. This is a true testament that you CAN garden in any space! I'm hoping these little pictures (sorry not the best I'm still hoping for a new camera!) inspire you to start a garden of your own! Perfect for getting the kiddos involved too! So happy sipping and happy gardening!
