Thank you Lord for the Samoan people..

And the wonderful cookies they make. Ok, not really. But, according to my husband that is the case.

So, Sunday my husband was out at the store and called to ask if he should bring home dessert. I told him that he could pick up some Edy's ice cream with the Samoa girl scout cookies in them. These cookies are also known as Caramel de Lites according to the official Girl Scout website. Well, my husband gets home from the store and says, I got the Samoan ice cream. I told him it is Samoa, that Samoans are a people who live in the Independent State of Samoa, which is a "country governing the western part of the Samoan Islands archipelago in the South Pacific island" (all this from Wikipedia). I told him he was thinking back to years ago when we went to Hawaii and we learned about the Samoans when we went to the Polynesian Cultural Center. Ah, the good old days. Our beautiful trip to Hawaii. I guess Samoa ice cream is the next best thing. Well, maybe.

And now for some crafty news...
Since the blog is called Chic Crafty Chick, I thought I should post something crafty. And yes, there will be a post soon on something chic. Unfortunately I haven't been able to work on any scrap booking in a while, but I have had an urgent project to finish.

Back a few weeks ago, our sweet, wonderful, cherub faced boston terrier chewed up a gorgeous hat I had knitted last year for Sawyer. I was so excited for him to be able to wear it. I had used red yarn and found the cutest buttons to sew on top. But, silly me left the hat where the "boston beast" could get it and she completely ripped up the hat. She is really a good dog most of the time, but that dog loves to chew buttons. Fortunately she just crunches them and doesn't swallow them. So, with my baby boys hat ripped to shreds, I had to knit a new one.

I just finished the hat yesterday. I used Paton's yarn and then I got some cute dinosaur buttons at Joann's fabric. The pattern I used was very simple and I added some stitches to it to make it bigger. As you can see, I think we will get two years wear out of this hat which is great with all the time I put in. The pattern I used also has a matching sweater which I may try to make. Wish me luck.

Hope you all are having a great week!
