Friday Five: Record Player and Life with Baby

It's that time again for Friday's five thoughts and five photos. Last week with it being Thanksgiving and having my husband work the majority of the time I wasn't able to post. So this week will be a combination of the two.

DIY Christmas Hoop Advent Calendar

Isn't it crazy that we only have 5 weeks till Christmas? Time goes so quickly. Yes, I am one of those obnoxious people who start listening to Christmas music in October, put my decorations up early November and keep the Christmas party going until mid January. *Mostly because it takes that long to  take everything down. 

This year I am ahead of everything, completed this fast and easy advent calendar early so that YOU can have yours ready in time too!

Seattle Seahawks Team Quilt for Everett

I am a die hard Seattle fan, so naturally my son is going to be one too! My first football game was at the Kingdom in the early 1990's and the Seahawks were playing the Denver when John Elway was still playing. Funny, thinking back on it now, we played Denver in the Superbowl. 

So having a son, the need to celebrate the Seahawks is huge especially since my team is the World Champs the year that he was born. So naturally I had to make him his very own Seattle Seahawks Quilt.

Happy Fall Embroidery Hoop Decor

With having Everett my stitching time has just evolved a little bit so rather than sitting at my sewing machine, I've been really working on my hand stitching skills.

Honey Glazed Roasted Chicken, Apples and Onion

We really like chicken around our house probably because I have so many recipes or the fact that I keep the freezer stocked with chicken. 

But sometimes I like to get creative and try new things and this time it really worked out great!

Friday 5: Birthday and Baby

I have been really excited about blogging and have completed so many projects to share and Everett is growing like a weed that there are so many things I want to share. 

Recently I had Everett's Christmas photos taken by my good friend Emily. She has a great blog Emmy Mom, that I discovered after we had met at a local blog social. 

She does this great post every Friday where she shares 5 thoughts and 5 photos from the week. I love this idea so I am going to try it.  This is going to be a challenge but I am really going to put forth the effort to post each Friday.

It's A Boy! Patriotic Birth Announcement Flag

Our baby was going to be due near the fourth of July. So a theme of red, white and blue emerged when it came to his birth announcement. Especially since we were having a boy. 

I wanted to greet visitors with a seasonal greeting but the added charm of announcing the birth of our son.

Chicken Sewing Crafts

My mom loves chickens. 

So while I was pregnant I worked on a lot of smaller projects. Two of which were "chicken" themed for my mother's kitchen.

Back to School Banner and Embroidery School Days

It is that time of year again...back to school. In reality I know that half the nation has already started school but some schools start after Labor Day weekend. 

So in celebration I thought I would share this before the holiday weekend began.

Blackberry Pie Bars

Nesting is the instinct where you are supposed to prepare the home for the newborn baby. Oddly enough, my nesting has been baking and sewing...and seriously maybe that isn't nesting at all but rather me using my energy on crafts and sweets.

American Flag Front Door Wreath

Decorating during the summer is probably one of my favorite seasons. And this year I am so lucky as to have a bright blue door that coordinates perfectly with the boldness of RED, WHITE and BLUE.

May Update: Mom comes to Visit, The Getty Villa, Planting Flowers and More

It seems like with all the craziness, after moving and trying to get settled in...we realized that our baby is going to be here a lot faster than we realized. With so much to do, my mom came for a visit while Mr. KofColors left for Chicago so that we could get some baby stuff ready.

January Baby Update and Events

January just flew by and before I knew it February is here. This last week of January, baby is at 17 weeks. I haven't been doing a lot of projects but mostly just catching up on cleaning house and sleep (because when I'm tired, I literally pass out).
