This weekend

We decided to get brave and take Jasper camping. We haven't been camping since right before I got pregnant- so almost 5 years ago!! 

We headed up to Grand Lake early Saturday morning to meet up with our friends who had reserved two camp spots. This was seriously the best campground ever for kids. They had a little river to play in, a petting zoo open all the time so you could just walk over and make new friends (which jasper definitely did) a marshmallow roast at night, horse back riding, a sweet playground and lots more!

 Why yes, I apparently AM showing at 5 weeks pregnant. I'm either having twins or an 13 lb baby..
 The horse back riding was So much fun! You didn't just go around in a circle, they actually gave you the horse to walk around, said to follow a trail and be back  in a half an hour. Crazy right?
 We headed into town so the guys could check out a beer festival and we could get some delicious ice cream, sit by the water and play at the park. Best way to spend a Saturday evening if you ask me!

                        All those pine trees are dead because of some beetle? So sad.
                                                         Jasper on Beauty- or boooty as he called her.

                            I was Thrilled to be somewhere cool enough to wear a scarf!!

What I wore:

Dress and belt : Forever 21
Boots: Long story; these are my grandmother's in Sweden. Or they were. When I was there in July (she passed away in March) I was going through some of her stuff to bring some small things back to the states for all my siblings and discovered we were the same size shoe! So I had to grab these beauties. I have no idea how old they are, but my uncle (in Sweden) thought she had had them forever. So I guess they are definitely vintage! And I can tell kind of by the inside- I need to buy something to put in them to make them a little softer.

Shirt: Forever oo21
Jeans: Gap
Boots: Grandma's vintage boots from Sweden
Scarf: Urban Outfitters

Linking up with Steppin' out Saturday and What I wore Wednesday


  1. Well you have a cute little bump anyway! My sis in law showed a lot quicker w/her second. It's like your body "remembers" and over-compensates. She didn't have a 13lb baby or twins though! ;)

  2. Super cute outfits and super cute baby bump!!! Congratulations! Im visiting from FTLOB!!! Great blog lady!

  3. Aww, what an awesome weekend! Just another great reason to love Colorado and all her beauty, eh boooty ;)You look so pretty in both your outfits here, and I adore the story of your grandmother's boots (since we both share a similar story of our grandma's boots :) Take good care friend, and I should be visiting in October :)

  4. Oh a cute baby bump. You look amazing. Love the out door pics too! I can't wait to wear my scarfs.

    This is only my third week linking up at WIWW.

    I currently have a fun anything goes linky at my blog that runs Friday through Monday each week. I just announced a new monthly “desperate 4 date night” linky and would love for you to join in on the fun. Here is the link explaing more.

    Thanks for you time and hope to see you soon.

  5. Aw, you have such a sweet family! Your little boy is so handsome! Congrats on the one of the way too!

  6. This weekend looks spectacular. I am also in need of the outdoor Chicago event venues for my daughter’s 5th birthday party. We would be hosting a grand princess themed party for her. If you have any suggestions for theme décor, please share.
