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). 



My Mom came south and made her first baby visit. This is her first grand baby and she is over the moon with excitement. With her time spent here we went to Disneyland so I could eat a corn dog and churro (the dole whip stand was closed). We fabric shopped for baby clothes and accessories, had a lobster dinner and cheered on as the Seahawks beat the 49ers. (I was raised as a die hard Seattle fan). 

Best part was Mom came with Mr.KofColors and I to a doctors visit, she was able to hear the baby's heartbeat. 

January is also the time for the Disneyland Tinker Bell Half Marathon. I've ran in the previous two Tinker Bell races (2012 & 2013) and had registered to run this year, but I wasn't planning on being pregnant. So I moved my registration to 2015 and Mr. KofColors and I WALKED the Inaugural Tinker Bell 10k. 


Mr. KofColors had never actually been in a Disney race so I cannot tell you how excited I was to be walking this year with him and carrying our baby. He was such a good sport, I ordered us Monsters Inc. t-shirts from The Cricket's Corner on Etsy. ( He was Sully, I am Mike.)


The end of the month I found myself at the most wonderful craft party ever!! This was my second time attending Creative Tea Time that was hosted by the lovely ladies, Meagan, Tracy and LeaAnn. 

I did create my dress from a vintage pattern, I was really lucky that it still fits because I made it awhile back. It was tight around the tummy.


What an event they have created. It was just a lovely day of chatting and creating crafts with an amazing group of women. I haven't finished any of my crafts yet but I have a lovely baby inspired pom-pom wreath that is nearly complete. 

So we are heading into February with lots of changes ahead and I'm so excited for what the future brings forth. 

2014 is going to be an amazing year!!
