Vacay Part One - VAIL

When Peter and I found out that there was a little baby boynton on the way, we decided to plan a fun trip for just the two of us, since we figured there won't be a lot of "just the two of us" in the future. We'd both been wanting to go to Colorado in the summertime and hadn't been to Vail or Beaver Creek so decided we'd go to both! We spent the first 2 nights in Vail... below are lots of pics! 

Breakfast in bed the first morning at our hotel, the Sebastian

While Peter was playing golf, I walked around Vail village...
watched this outdoor yoga class while I drank my coffee!

The famous covered bridge in Vail.

Another pic of the covered bridge.

Betty Ford Alpine Gardens

Back in Vail Village... cute little kids playing in a fountain

There were pretty flowers everryyyywhere. Much classier than the dead ones in our front yard.

Lunch by myself (so cool) at Alpenrose (a german restaurant) while Peter was playing golf.
My first course, goulash!

Second course, Monte Cristo sandwich. yumm.

Pic under the covered bridge!

Farmers Market in Vail Village on Sunday

Biking down Vail Pass ( kind of biking!) 
So strong..

View of Vail Golf Course while riding our bikes

Post bike ride lunch at Los Amigos with a pretty view!

Their mexican food was actually pretty legit.

Pretty Vail Village!
We had so much fun in Vail and wanna go back for sure! Next post I will show pictures from Beaver Creek... also beautiful!

Living Room Inspiration

So we finally ordered some new couches & they should be arriving in a week or so... which means now I can't wait to fix up the living room and make it cuter, as its been buggggging me for a while. The couches will be a good start, seeing as our old couches were UGLY (i bought them at some point, I dont know why) and DISGUSTING (thanks to sweet little benson and his toy licking fetish). Beyond the couches, Im not sure exactly what I'm going to do, I just know I want it to be colorful and fun... not drab and kind of boring like it is now. So here are some pictures that have been inspiring me lately:

The pictures are kind of all over the place, but each photo has things I like and hope to somehow incorporate into our space... Can't wait to get started! Next up will be the nursery! :)

14 Weeks!

How far along?: 14 weeks today!
Baby is the size of?: a lemon
Maternity clothes?: I bought a belly band thing to hold up my shorts that won't button comfortably anymore... and I bought a couple of shirts at Target (one being the red tank in the picture). I dont need them yet, just preparing.. and this tank is just comfortable cause its so long!
Feeling? Better yesterday and today. But before that it was nausea centrallll. Hoping things just keep getting better.. oh & headaches have been a new addition lately! Tylenol to the rescue!
Stretch marks?: Not that I'm aware of.
Sleep: Sleeping well.. except when I'm really excited thinking about stuff, and then its hard to sleep!
Best moment this week: Yesterday when I didn't feel nauseous all day.
Miss anything?: Hmm not really. Except I guess having a beer or glass of wine sometimes..
Movement: Nope
Food cravings: Fruit since day one pretty much.. and now I'm craving hardy things like chili or spaghetti with meatballs for example. Probably just so that I wont be hungry in 30 minutes!
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Uh yes. lots of things. Coffee. And any food that smells strong or weird.
Have you started to show yet?: A little! Mainly just look pudgy! :)
Gender prediction: I think its a boy... maybe. I dont know!
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly button in our out?: In
Wedding rings on or off?: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: I think happy but maybe peter would say otherwise if he was doing this questionaire. Mainly moody when I'm tired though, which is often. So hah! Maybe moody is my answer!
Looking forward to: Showing more so that I feel pregnant and not just BIG.. and looking forward to find out the gender of Baby Boynton on September 7th!!
