We’re from Texas where bigger is better and color is mandatory! We travel to the big city of Dallas at least once a month to film our Crockin’ Monday videos and we maaaaayyyy do some shopping :). We stopped into Tar-jay (Target), one of our favorite stores, and we were greeted by these beautiful Bella Dots collection of slow cookers. We had to go over a look, touch, open and then walk away with them. They’re a perfect combination of our love for Crockin’ and color. Who knew you could accessorize your kitchen with a crock? But we do now! They aren’t programmable, but they still cook evenly and they look great on the table if you’re serving your dish directly out of the crock. They’re still available at Target so go get one in your favorite jewel tone color! Crockin’ never looked so good.
If you don’t know, our babies that just turned 3 were born two hours apart on June 18th. Gage, my son’s (Nicole) birthday is June 30th. Since we have been so busy this year, we decided to have a big combination birthday party for all the kids. It went so well, we might just have to do it year after year (or until they get “too big”).
To begin planning we picked a Pirate Theme. We knew we were going to rent our water park in our hometown for part of the birthday so whatever theme we chose needed to go along with water. We both had beach theme birthdays in the past so we thought this would be fun and colorful as well. We went with black, red, and turquoise (pink and green came into the play later on).
On one of Jenna’s trips to the city, she found cute treasure map plates and tablecloths, red and turquoise cups, black and red polka dot napkins, and a treasure chest piñata. Locally, I found red, black, and turquoise striped dinner plates, serving dishes and table cloths.
