You can try but I'm unbreakable.
You can do your best, but I'll stand the test.
You'll find that I'm unshakeable.
When the fire's burnt,
When the wind has blown,
When the water's dried, you'll still find stone.
My heart of stone."

  • @allthingscozy. I was just talking about not having any done meal planning-wise this week.  Using your dinner as inspiration for one meal!
    allthingscozy
  • @dobiemom11 do it!! My crockpot is my favorite thing! Especially when used with crockpot liners :) 
  • @allthingscozy. Oh my goodness...we had pulled chicken sandwiches.  Thanks for the inspiration. We used to love pulled pork in NC, but I can't have pork any more.  Such a perfect substitute.  Kinda bummed that my DH  ate it all- none for lunch tomorrow.  I also made some cornbread.  It was so crumbly that it didn't really work, but it will perfect for the chili later in the week.  
    allthingscozy
  • @dobiemom11 cornbread and chili is so yummy!! Glad it worked well!

    @capnjackharkness omg those look amazing and delicious! Those stupid mini eggs are literally my kryptonite! I cannot have them in the house or I will eat the entire bag and then complain about my tongue being raw from that rough sugar coating. 😭

    edited because “being” came out as “bro” and it wasn’t acceptable lmao

    Resurrecting this thread, I know we're all in weird places now, but wanted to let my fellow crafters know that Joann is doing exclusively curbside pickup at all of their locations, you place your order online in advance, and it gets brought out to your car. 

    Also to note - my Joann is completely backed up on these orders (over the phone they told me that their one location has over 200 orders to fill currently) so if you think you want or need something, I would order before you need it! :D 

    I stress bought 8 more skeins of yarn yesterday, just waiting for my email that the order is ready for pickup!

  • @mvt2003 I saw you post and was hoping to see a picture of your latest creation!  Can we see it??  Also, thanks for the tip!  I wish I had a Joann's close, but tbh I have enough yarn for at least a few projects.  So I should probably use what I have.  haha

  • @gingermama29 YES!  Paw prints!  My husband picked the pattern (out of a bunch of choices I gave him), and the colors.  I crocheted it.  Started it over the holidays, but finished it earlier than expected with all the extra time at home!
