We celebrated Easter with lunch and High Tea at The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa. This was my first time experiencing High Tea and I absolutely loved every minute of it. High Tea is held in the lobby of the hotel and includes a vast selection of exotic teas accompanied by delicious mini desserts, scones, tea sandwiches and live music. And if you’re not abstaining from champagne like I currently am, you can add in bubbly! We really didn’t need to eat lunch before since there was so much food served, but since we were all tea-time beginners and didn’t know any better we ate beforehand. The Brown Palace is one of my go-to’s for special occasions, like the Champagne Cascade to kick off the holiday season as seen in this post.
I’ve been experimenting with how to dress my growing baby bump and found the perfect Easter outfit as seen in this Instagram post.
I’ve put the bubbles on hiatus, and for good reason… since I’m expecting!
Our little bundle of joy is due in early August, and Scott and I are over the moon that we are going to be parents.
I found out that I was pregnant on Thanksgiving, which is very fitting for the holiday as we are extremely grateful. We surprised our families with the news on Christmas and have been slowly sharing with friends and co-workers over the past few months.. and even made it Facebook official on Super Bowl Sunday with the photo above! We kept our news private for a while which was really special, but now that I’m showing a little and past the midway point I thought it was time to share with you all.
I’m now 21 weeks and I can’t believe we’re over half way there! I can’t wait to share more of my journey through pregnancy and motherhood!
This past weekend, Scott and I spent a long weekend in New York City. We’re lucky enough to have friends who live in the city and they always show us a good time, taking us to historical bars, hip restaurants and recommending fun tourist activities a little off the beaten path. For those without friends in NYC, here’s my long-weekend guide to New York City.
Scott and I are headed to The Big Apple! We have a ton of great activities planned including a viewing of The Jimmy Fallon Show, hanging with one of my best friends from college and lots of culinary delights. And while it may seem like Spring in Denver, NYC is a bit colder and the forecast is even predicting some snow flurries while we’re there. See my selections for everything you need to pack for a long winter weekend in the city!
