Ahhhh, the glorious view of the Rocky Mountains! There is seriously nothing more majestic and beautiful than this view. I grew up coming to Estes Park as a kid every year and since I’ve became an adult I’ve found myself making multiple trips a year here. With baby on the way I couldn’t think of a better “Baby Moon” than here to come as a family of 3 one last time (before we are 4)! If you have never visited Estes Park it is a must! Estes is very family friendly with so much to do from horse back riding, to hiking in RMNP, white water rafting, to shopping downtown, mini golfing, and even enjoying a Colorado home brew at the Beer Garden.

When we first got into town we dropped our stuff off at my Aunts place (who lives in Estes and was very kind to let us stay with her) and relaxed a little bit. Since the Drive from Wichita to Estes is a long one we really took it easy the first night and just went to a late movie. We saw Guardians of the Galaxy 2, it was seriously hilarious, if you haven’t seen it yet do yourself a favor and DO IT!


Tuesday May 30th, 2017 : My Birthday and 32 Weeks!

So I officially hit the 32 Week mark! Wahoo! I must say its still unreal that I only have 8 weeks left! To celebrate our milestone and my birthday we started the day off with some breakfast at The Egg & I in downtown. They have such good breakfast, we always enjoying making a stop here when we are in town! After breakfast we went to Fun City for some mini golf. The weather was perfect, and I’m happy to say that I actually won a round of mini golf for once and NO, they didn’t let me win just cause it was my birthday! While we were mini golfing we happened to see Open Air Adventure Park across the way, and decided to make our way over after we grabbed some lunch at the Estes Park Brewery.

Now with Open Air they only do courses/sessions every 30 minutes so we had to originally wait a little before we could go. Now obviously with me being pregnant I couldn’t participate but Lincoln and Kevin could. Before getting up on beams they had to go through a little walk through session on their gear and how to maneuver through out the course. I happened to snap a couple cute pics of them.

Now being the quick learners they are they had no problem and hopped right on in!

Linc completed the first level of the course, the greens and blues, we hung out while dad completed the second level of course (the hardest)! So proud of him!

We spent the rest of our evening hanging out at the house having a Monopoly game night, Kevin kicked our butts.


Wednesday May 31st, 2017 : A Day in Denver

Wednesday we made the hour and a half drive into Denver to take Linc to the Denver Aquarium. If you haven’t ever had a chance to take your little ones I very highly recommend this! Kevin and I went together last year and enjoyed it as adults so much that we wanted to bring him back here.

The coolest part is at the very end where you can touch the sting rays! We had a hard time getting Linc to leave, haha.

After the Aquarium we made the short drive next door the Children’s Museum of Denver where they have indoor and outdoor exhibits. Now we didn’t know there was a water area for the kids to play in so we didn’t come prepared unfortunately and had to skip out on that, so if its warm out bring your kids swim suits, its a really neat area!

As you can see this museum is also easily just as enjoyable for adults as well!


Thursday June 1st, 2017 : HOME we go!

So before we headed back home we made a quick stop down into Glen Haven for their famous cinnamon rolls! Now if you plan on making this stop make sure you not only get there when they first open (9 am) but that you also call ahead the day before If you plan on ordering more than 5! They will only give a maximum of 5 rolls per person, and they go quick so get in line and plan ahead! I promise its worth it! Hope our little vacation gave you some in sight on fun things to do if you ever visit Estes Park. Since I can’t hike I did miss not being able to go into the park and do the trails but there is always next time!

XOXO,

MICHAEL KORS Bag Review

May 4th, 2017

Bag Review Title Pic

So as some of you may know this past weekend I went on a Bachelorette Party to Denver, CO. Now I’m not normally a big bag person, I usually swing for the smaller “sling” style bags because I like to be hands free. However though, as many of you may know I am 28 weeks pregnant so I figured it was not only time for a new purse because mine was falling apart but because I needed to get used to carrying something bigger around with baby boy on his way since a diaper bag isn’t exactly small. Now I’m not normally one to splurge on a bag, and to be honest I have had my eyes on this bag  but I wanted to get a feel for a bigger bag first before splurging. If I do decide to go with the LV I will definitely write a review though since I plan on using it more as a baby bag rather than an actual purse. Back to this bag though, I must say I was VERY satisfied with my purchase! The Mercer Tote is large and can carry many items comfortably as it does come with a shoulder strap so I get the best of both worlds, hands free and more storage. I really wanted to put my new purse to the test this past weekend and see just how much I could carry around comfortably while we did “Bachelorette” things. I will mention this bag does not have many pockets so if you are a someone who likes lots of “storage” in their purse this may not be the one for you but, storage is not a big deal for me. I was able to fit my planner comfortably at the bottom, along with my travel makeup bag, large wallet,  mini Amazing Grace perfume, iPhone charger, prenatal vitamins, and Quay Australia Sunglasses with plenty of room left to add anything else I could have wanted to. While I do understand this purchase would be a splurge for some I would highly recommend this bag, easy 9/10. I would give it a 10/10 if it had more pockets but I know while its not important for me it may be for some. The leather and handles are well made and sturdy, and it holds its shape well. If you would like a more in depth blog about everything I keep in my bag (wether it is to see the size of the items I fit in there or curious to see what I like to keep in my bag) please comment down below. 

You can buy this bag Here as well as browse the inside to see what I’m talking about storage wise. 

Xoxo,
