Welcome Cool Kids to BlogHop 09'!

Digg!
Hey y'all. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. This is my first time participating in BlogHop, so I'm very excited and delighted you've stopped by.

I started this blog in December of 2007. My first blogging experience was in 2006 when my first son Sawyer was born premature at 25 weeks. I used that blog to keep friends and family up to date on our progress through the NICU experience and then getting our little guy home. After dealing with the stress of becoming a new mom and all the challenges of having a preemie, I needed something new and for me, thus the Chic Crafty Chick blog was born. I picked the title for my blog because I wanted something catchy and fun that would capture and reflect the different parts of who I am. The parts of me that I felt I was losing a bit and having a hard time staying in touch with after becoming a new stay at home mom.

I'm a wife to a great guy and a mom to Sawyer who is 3, little Logan who will be 9 months next week, and Miss Zoe our Boston Terrier and first fur child. I've also just taken over as coordinator of my Mother's Of Preschooler's (MOPS) group, so I'm juggling many different hats.

I love sharing information and I blog about things I like and love. I blog about my kids, fun finds, and my hobbies of scrap booking and knitting (when I get a chance to do them). I have started posting two fun tips that I call my "Two Tip Tuesday" posts and every Friday I have a "Fabulous Favorite Friday" post where I share something I like that you might find helpful too. And the rest of the week is just a hodge podge of goodness.

I hope you enjoy BlogHop 09' and thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again.

So nice to meet you and your blog sounds great!
I love "fur child". We have 2 very neglected ones who used to be the center of our worlds!! So sad for them... but they don't have to measure up to "performance charts" at the pediatrician's office! Have a fun time hopping!

Thanks for stopping by I like doing the blog hopping you get to see so many interesting blogs.Sounds to me like you have a very busy life. Something I need to do find a life outside of my kids. Not that they are not enough but like you said I need to find something that is just me. I look forward to visiting your blog again.
