26 Weeks

This bump update is also a few weeks delayed, but I thought I'd post regardless!

26 Weeks: Baby Gries is the size of a HEAD OF LETTUCE (or as my dad said "Cabbage Patch Baby")

With all the kicking, I am fairly certain we have a future Pee Wee Soccer All-Star on our hands!

Girls Weekend!

A few months ago one of my college friends/roommates Sarah (Snodgrass) planned a trip to come visit me in Denver. Then, a few weeks ago, Snodgrass and Alli (another college friend) called me to tell me Alli had booked a ticket to come out the same weekend. I was so surprised and so so thrilled to be having a mini reunion in Denver.

Welcome Basket for the girls :)

Snodgrass had never been to the mountains before, so I took her to Breckenridge for the day. We walked around the town, went shopping and ate at Mi Casa. Added bonus... it was snowing!

On Saturday, we picked Alli up from the airport and headed straight for Snooze. I had to introduce the girls to the best breakfast ever. Plus... they have Knorks! 

While we were waiting for our table at Snooze, I got a call from Jeff. He told me to look under the floor mat in my car - where I found an envelop. He told me he had a surprise for us and to open the envelope with the girls. Here's what was inside...

Just when I thought he couldn't be sweeter/cuter/more thoughtful, Jeff went and booked us all mani/pedis! It was the best surprise!

After our spa day, we did a little shopping and met Sarah Noel for dinner at Osterio Marco.

We had SUCH a fun weekend. I can't wait to see these girls again... Maybe Spring Break 2014? ;)

Week 24

I realize it's been almost 2 months, since I gave a bump update. Here's a look at week 24 (almost a month ago!)

Week 24: Baby Gries is the size of a cantaloupe!
By this time, I was definitely starting to feel some kicks and jabs - still feeling great though!

This was such a fun week. On Thursday, we had our good friends Kara and Cory come over to carve/paint/glitterize pumpkins before Halloween.

Cory and Jeff opted for carving

Then, on Friday, we went to Winter Park with Jeff's family. We spent the weekend enjoying the mountains, relaxing and playing games.

Rachel (Brian's GF) takes amazing pics, so we had her snap of few of us. More to come!
