"To plant a garden, is to believe in tomorrow" - Audrey Hepburn
Believing in tomorrow is a powerful way to live your life and living in the now is just as important. Yesterday I treated myself to a day in the salon to get a mommy makeover. During my hair appointment my husband stopped by to help watch Luscian but he looked as though he was in an extreme level of pain. He contemplated going to the hospital, but an hour went by and the pain dulled down. Once I got home later that evening I made dinner and began to give the baby his bath. As I pulled Luscian out of the tub I heard a deep grunting sound coming from Sean downstairs. I grabbed my soaking wet baby, wrapped him up in a towel and scrambled down the stairs to see what the breathless noises were all about. Sean was hunched over and curled up in a ball on the tile floor. I immediately dressed the baby and forced Sean to get in the car to go to the hospital. He kept telling me that he was fine and the pain will pass. So he had said all day. HA!
The doctors did a handful of tests. Their goal was to rule out appendicitis since that is lethal. We sat as a family and said a prayer. After 8 hours, a handful of tests and being prepped for all the worst case scenarios the results finally came in. Luckily Sean did not have any issues with his appendix, but sadly he was suffering from a very large kidney stone. I am so thankful Sean did not need surgery. We took this situation as an eye opener. We all need to take better care of ourselves. Sean is the rock in our family and we would be lost without him. Hug your loved ones and drink lots of water. Kidney stones are no fun. I'm sorry to have kept you all waiting to see my new hair. Family matters came first. Thank you for following my snapchats yesterday. I can't wait to share my hair transformation with you, but I need to catch up on some sleep before styling my new do. So, while we are all recovering from lack of sleep I thought I would share this Fabulous fun find we found here in Las Vegas. It speaks wonders for our recent scare.

A week ago we were invited to the one and only community garden! It is called Vegas Roots
. They were hosting an event called Grow Your Own.
Vegas Roots is a community-based nonprofit organization.
Opened and operated by the parent organization, Together We Can, the garden utilizes over four acres of vacant property right near Downtown Las Vegas.
Since its establishment in March 2010, Vegas Roots continues to be our city’s FIRST and ONLY urban farm.
The non-profit organization produces Fresh Food, Builds Young Leaders, Creates Neighborhood Connectivity & Opportunities for Contribution. They strive to promote Healthy Bodies and Minds along with providing classes in nutrician, cooking, and gardening courses for kids and adults.
Community service is a huge part of this garden. School outreach programs help through field trips and bringing the garden to the classroom. Youth entrepreneurial programs and home garden installation are also options for people to participate in.
The garden serves to Low Income Families, At Risk Youth, Children, Seniors, Veterans, and Homeless.
Luscian loved looking at all of the colorful plants and vegetables. A lot of people brought their dogs to the garden which made little man super happy. We saw two super cute boxer puppies that stole the show. Vendors were spread out with their pop up tents sharing tips on gardening, selling organic seeds along with other handmade items.
I dressed Luscian up in this overall outfit. He looked like a little farmer boy. I wore these eye catching floral leggings with my gardening boots. Shop my leggings HERE
