Mom Blog Monday Blog Hop: I’m the Featured Blogger!

If you’re here visiting from the Mom Blog Monday Blog Hop…Welcome! I’m Jenn, this week’s featured blogger. Yay, me 🙂

I’ve only been blogging since August 2010 so I’m always looking to make new bloggy friends and of course for new readers/subscribers. If you start reading and commenting on my blog on a regular basis…I will do the same for yours (that’s what friends do, right?!). You will find all of my follow buttons in the left sidebar, up on the menu bar, or in links at the bottom of this post. If you’re looking for something to read scroll down the right sidebar to find Recent Posts, Top Posts, Archives, Categories, Tags, and links to other posts.
Hopefully this feature goes better than the other one I had back in December for the SITS Girls 🙂 At least it’s started off good so far!
That should be everything. Thanks so much for stopping by and have fun hopping!

(I have no idea why that box is so giant and weird)

Are you a Mommy blogger? Do you blog about your kids? Do you blog about great things for Mommies? Do you wanna meet other Mom Bloggers?

If you answered yes to any of those questions then link up!

This blog hop is hosted by Sippy Cups and Cloth Bums, The Not-So-Secret Confessions of a First Time Mom, and Luxury Living Frugal Style!

What is a blog hop?
A blog hop is an awesome way of meeting and reaching out to more bloggers.

All we ask is that you follow Sippy Cups and Cloth Bums, The Not-So-Secret Confessions of a First Time Mom, and Luxury Living Frugal Style. Be sure to leave them a comment so we can follow you back! We always follow back!

Please link directly to your blog ONLY! Please do not link up your giveaways. These will be deleted, as we monitor all links.

We would LOVE it if you’d grab our button and put it somewhere on your blog or in a blog post! This would help us spread the word. However, you aren’t required to.

You can follow as many or as few blogs as you’d like.

*Each week one lucky blogger who links up will be the next week’s featured blogger.*

This week’s featured blogger is:

Jenn (“Cool Mama”) at Coolest Family on the Block

Hi! I’m “Cool Mama” a domestically-challenged Christian stay-at-home mom to a beautiful 18 month old girl, Adaline. Cool Daddy and I are trying to conceive again (with a history of infertility) and saving for an adoption that we hope to pursue in 2013.
I like reading, writing, musicals, all things Disney, and building puzzles (but who does this with an 18mo around?!). I love chocolate and ice cream as if they were my own very tasty children.

When I “have it altogether” I like to write posts about creative ways to have fun and make traditions and memories with your family. When I don’t have it all together (which is most of the time) I post about our family life. If you enjoy reading the (sometimes) humorous nonsensical ramblings of a stranger…you’ll love my blog!

The linky list will not show up on my blog because I have a free site that does not allow the use of java. SO…to enter your url to the Blog Hop please click below. Thanks 🙂

SITStah’s…Stop here first!

***There’s been a little confusion and I just want to point out that I’m only the featured blogger today…I am NOT the designer that will redesign your blog (and everyone lets out a big sigh of relief after noticing the mess that my blog is). Mariah from Jula Studio is the designer that you could potentially win a new blog design from! (Congratulations, Cheryl, on winning the blog design!) Again, I repeat it is definitely NOT ME as I have no idea what I’m doing and would love a blog redesign of my own. Best of luck to you all!***

Oh my goodness! I can’t even believe this! How about I thought that my SITS day was TOMORROW the 15th and it’s not and I didn’t even put up my post or anything! TODAY is actually my SITS day! And I’m a little, um, unprepared. I don’t know what day it is! I can’t believe it…I feel so stupid!
So give me some time to set up my post…Christmas Jammie fun is on it’s way I promise.
(It’s here now!)

I managed to slap this post up real quick before realizing that the baby had just pooped…seriously. On top of that she’s totally attached to me today and won’t give me a moment to, well, do what I’m doing now. For TOMORROW I had a babysitter lined up so that I could spend all day long exchanging witty comments with other clever bloggers. I used to be totally on top of things and then I had a baby and my brain fell out of my ear and never came back. Oh, planning and preparation my frenemy. How you mock me so.

Here’s the deal…I want to blog about making family life fun, traditions, holidays, birthdays, making things special…whatever you want to call it (oh, I’m too frazzled to be eloquent right now). But the truth is that a good bit of the time I blog about my life as a mama and all that jazz. I like to think that I’m funny, but that’s open for debate.

So, here we are…my blog. I’m far from perfect and today it’s really showing. Welcome to motherhood. It smells like poop. And sunshine…don’t forget about the sunshine.

(Oh yeah, and WELCOME and stuff…)

Now let’s pretend none of that ever happened and move on to the post that I’m supposed to have up for you…10 Ways to Shake Up Your Christmas Pajamas Tradition…enjoy!
