Beautiful Fall Day

17 weeks pregnant!

We were determined to see the beautiful Colorado fall colors this weekend. So, we headed up to Woodland Park, and had plans to drive around to find the colors as well as a place to hike. We ran into a family from New Life at Quiznos and they ended up giving us directions to their private ranch in Divide, CO. So, after a long venture, we finally found their ranch. It was a beautiful ranch with Aspens everywhere! We had fun taking pictures, with all of the magnificent Aspens, we couldn't help ourselves. The photo bug is starting to grow on Gabe!

Wonderful Friends!

This post is way overdue, but its never too late to be thankful for friends! I have known most of these girls since my elementary years! My friend Jess got married this summer, so we finally had a "God Squad" reunion. Yes, I said "God Squad"! In junior high, Jess' mom led a bible study for all of us, which I will forever cherish. This is how we became known as the "God Squad", and we were proud of it! The funny thing is that 4 of us in this picture were actually called the "Snob Squad" in 5th grade. I'm not so proud of that title, but atleast the Lord got ahold of our lives! But, on a more serious note, I will forever cherish these wonderful women. The friendships that we built way back in the day will forever continue. Even though we all went our various ways during our highschool and college years, because we have that strong faith foundation, the Lord has kept each one of these girls in my life. I am so thankful! They each resemble such beautiful characteristics of Christ and I can learn so much from each of them! It is really amazing to watch God direct their lives. Of course, I wish we could see more of eachother. We are all scattered throughout Colorado and Kimmie is always in and out of the country, but I do pray they know how thankful I am for them! I will never forget all the fun memories we have made together, I pray for many more memories to come! Love you girls!

The zapping begins!

A couple of weeks ago, my mom came down to the Springs and took me to Babies R Us. I had already opened a registry online, but I had never been to an actual Babies R Us store! What a fun adventure we had! We walked around the store, and zapped multiples. At this point, I have no idea what brands are considered good or even what colors I'm looking for. But we thought, might as well zap and then I can always make changes to the registry online. It was so fun! When we were looking at the strollers I got so excited. It felt so natural holding the baby carrier and giving the stoller a little trial push!
