like last year's dress, i went with some stretch lace lined with some super soft brushed poly. i used a different pattern and added a little flair courtesy of a sparkly hair clip i attached to a makeshift sash and voila:
they'd asked the parents to dress in black, and using some fabric from my ever-growing stash and a pattern that had just been released i managed to bust this out the afternoon of the banquet:
dinner was served buffet-style - various pastas, salad, chicken.
i knew she was super excited to receive one of the "best dancer" awards this year.
and the girls presented their coaches with appreciation gifts after all of the awards had been handed out.
each girl received a one dream cheer swag bag that contained fun swag like t-shirts and headbands.
and the hub bonded with the bean's oldest and dearest friend.
it was a lovely way to celebrate a successful cheer season, and while we'd normally be on a break until season 3 begins, the bean had opted to join a special mid-season team. this group of athletes are going to perform in vegas at a competition in may, and they're hoping to nail their routine and come home with more championship hardware and gear.
gotta love vegas.
