Crafting in 15: No sew reupholstery

I am in full nursery decorating mode, which is good considering my due date is like a week away.

Before my husband and I got married he inherited this gliding rocker from his grandmother. I love it, but the fabric is... well... ugly. 

I decided to give it a little update for baby's room. But there is just one problem. I DON'T SEW. At all! Thank heaven for staple guns!

put Chuck to Work, Getting all the Bang for Your Ground Beef  

Let's face it meat is expensive. Remember when you could get ground beef for $.99 a pound? Yeah, neither do I. What's a good price for ground beef? Who knows anymore?

Personally I could go months without meat, but my husband I think would wander into the woods to find a wild animal to kill with his bare hands after about three days.

SO many recipes call for a pound of ground beef. Ummm…. Not so fast. Let’s say we go halvsies on this one.

Bedtime Book Favorites 

For as long as my son has been on this planet we have been reading to him. My mother read to him in our hospital room the morning after he was born and we've been reading to him day and night since. 

It's important. I believe that a child learning to read is one of the single most important things that can happen to them. Think, what is more life changing than reading? 

 So I thought I'd share some of our reading favorites.
