Competition Cheer Showoff

Annelise had her very first competition cheer event on Sunday, 10/30. It was a showoff - judged, but no awards given - so it was the perfect way to prep for the real thing coming in a couple weeks Austin.

We got together with a bunch of our teammates the day before to practice the official hair & makeup. Oh, yes - there's a how-to video for how to achieve the gym's signature look for this season! :-O This is VERY NEW territory!!! I don't wear any makeup except brown glitter eyeliner (always looking for a fab one; current fave - Sephora Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof in Cappuccino) and long-wear lip stuff (currently Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede in Supermodel,) so all the details were really intimidating. :-D It was much more fun to figure it out together!

The showoff was about an hour away, so we didn't have to go the day before & stay in a hotel. We just met at the venue:
Team Extreme!
Annelise with her gym "little sister" (on another team)
Team Extreme praying before going in... ♥

It's the very beginning of competition season, so we can't post a video of the routine on social media, but I have lots of stills!

  3. We actually just lost a girl on our team (she injured her back) so they are having to work EXTRA hard this week to reorganize without her! Prayers of healing for her and of patience, stamina, & quick adjusting for the rest of Extreme before Sunday!
