These pictures were taken just this weekend and now there is snow on the ground again. We’ve had a pretty mild winter here in Denver, but man am I ready for Spring! We are headed to Australia in just over a month and I am seriously counting down the days until we take off!!!! 42 days and counting! But we do have a lot of fun things going on before we are off to the Land Down Under, so I’m trying to enjoy everything as it comes and not wish time away.
The holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean the pretty clothing has to go by the wayside! Winter wardrobes can start to feel a bit drab when the cold weather persists, but adding some embellishments to your basics is an easy way to update your look.
I recently picked up this cutout choker sweater dress in grey and it’s the perfect go-to for the season. It’s cozy with an interesting neckline and the short hemline makes it perfect to pair with over-the-knee boots.
I couldn’t be happier that summer is fi-na-lly here! I live for warm weather and as you might have noticed gravitate towards wearing dresses, tank tops, skirts and sandals. I love not having to grab a coat and pile on a scarf, hat and gloves. It’s so nice to unbundle for the season.
Burgundy paired with pink may be a fall trend, but since it’s still in the 80’s and 90’s in Denver I’ve modified the trend for hotter temps.
We took a break from decorating the nursery (formerly Scott’s gym) and grabbed a bite to eat on a patio so we could enjoy the lovely weather we’ve been having.
So far, in the nursery we have a crib and a dresser filled with a few cute onesies and things I just couldn’t resist picking up for our little guy. This past weekend, with some much-needed help from my dad, we focused on giving the space a new coat of paint, installing a new ceiling fan and hanging up some curtains. I’m so excited to start pulling the baby’s room together and will share more with you in the future.
The sun was shining in Denver this weekend and it really was such a beautiful couple of days. On Sunday, Scott and I had our own little date day which was so nice to just have a laid back day to ourselves. We took the dog to the park, had lunch on a patio (followed by a stop at Dairy Queen… I mean come on, 70 degrees in April calls for a DQ Blizzard), played cornhole in our yard just the two of us (to really take advantage of the warm weather), made dinner and watched a movie. It was a perfect day! And now that we have a little one on the way, I’m really trying to cherish the one-on-one time with my husband.
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!
To celebrate the start of the holiday season, my friend Katie and I took time to attend the Champagne Cascade at The Brown Palace…. a champagne-lover’s paradise.
Denim is for Fall. And I’m all on board in my Tennessee Tuxedo!
An all denim look is a great way to dress for the change of seasons. It’s a very fall look if I do say so myself.
