Baby Boynton Gender Reveal!

My sweet A&M friends (I call them that even though technically only half of them went to A&M) threw Peter and me a little gender reveal party a couple weeks ago and it was so cute and fun! Below are the cute hostesses... Emily, Gina, Berkeley, Nicole, Kiley, and Jennifer. All of our husbands went to A&M together which is how they got the title "A&M friends".

**the quality, pretty pictures below are taken by my friend Jason Kindig of Jason Kindig Photography, but please note that the not so quality ones are not by him.. they are by my iphone! :) 


Cute cupcakes made by the talenteddd Amanda Buccola of  Red Raspberry Cakes
And cute bow and mustache cookies made by my mom -- her website is here
water bottle labels for baby boynton!
the chalkboard where all the guests could vote on whether it was a boy or girl...
and the cute bows and mustaches that people pinned on their shirts! 
Maybe these old wives tales are more accurate than we think!
Cute balloons and food table
Baby pics of me and Peter.. such a good idea!
The hostesses also had everyone secretly bring a book for Baby Boynton!

Now for the REVEEAALLL..... whats it gonna be!?



IT'S A BOYnton!!! Peter was clearly very excited.... :)


Showing off the blue filling in my cupcake 
Happy parents-to-be!

And here's a video in case you want to watch Peter throw his arms in the air and bang the countertop with overwhelming joy...its pretty priceless. Sorry the video is little and blurry!

Can't wait to meet our little baby boy... thanks again hostesses for the super fun partay!!

Vacay Part Two - BEAVER CREEK

After our two nights in Vail, Peter & I headed over to Beaver Creek and stayed at the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch Resort... its probably the nicest hotel we will stay in for a very long time!! :) 


Pretty little wedding spot... I wish I could say we stood under the arbor and whispered sweet nothings to each other, but we didnt... just walked by it. hah

The little town of Beaver Creek...

We took the ski lift up the mountain to eat lunch and hike.. it was so pretty & one of my favorite things we did! 

Where we ate lunch on top of the mountain

Pre-hike pic!


Just the beginning of Peter wanting to kill me for all the solo-pics I made him take. 

I was apparently straggling behind... between taking pictures & being pregnant, its hard to keep up!

We made a couple of deer friends along the way. Lil cuties.

Sure these things are probably for kids, but I thought they were fun too. so suuueee me.

Pretty pretty colorado.

I found a walking stick. But then it gave me splinters so I gave up on that cute idea.

Post hike relaxinnnn. 

The pretty view down the mountain. Straight ahead is the beaver creek golf course that peter played!

Our patio over-looking the pool

View from our patio!

Another view from our patio.. such a beautiful resort! 
We had such a good time in Vail and Beaver Creek and definitely came home feeling refreshed and relaxed, much more ready for Baby Boynton preparations!

Next blog posts should be gender reveal party pics and a 19 week bump pic, so stay tuned! :)
