This chest is about 1 1/2 ft tall and has perfect drawers to hold a lot of my big bracelets and necklaces, instead of them taking up my precious bathroom storage (closet space and storage in my house is hard to come by)! I know I want to leave the woven part as is, but I want to refinish the wooden part. Would love some ideas on what I should do with it :)
One of the most difficult transitions I have had to make since August 19, 2011- the day this all began, is that I am now a working mama!
I earned my degree in interdisciplinary Studies (a degree that allows me to teach Pre-K through 4th grade) in May 2008 and started teaching 4th grade that August. During my first year of teaching I found out I was pregnant with Spencer and he was due the next June. After he was born I went back to teaching. I was a working mama, and it was fairly easy to balance. I had a set schedule and knew what each day would hold for the most part. I taught the first year after Spencer was born and then decided I really wanted to stay home with him.
We love to hear from our Crockin’ Community how slow cooking has simplified life. We started this to help busy families, like ours, slow down and enjoy a meal together without the stress or mess of preparing difficult recipes that leave you defeated. If you haven’t already, pull out the slow cooker and reclaim dinner time (and your sanity)! Read below and share in our Crockin’ Love!
Nothing eliminates stress more than being able to quickly answer the age old question, “what’s for dinner?” For this week’s meal plan we have compiled four recipes that will get you cRockin’ and Rollin’ through the week:
SUNDAY: No Bake Spaghetti
MONDAY: Tune into Crockin’ Monday
THURSDAY: Corn Chowder
FRIDAY: Pork Loin Roast for Nachos
SATURDAY: Not Crockin’, it’s the weekend!
