Slow Cooker Three Bean Soup

Today I have a wonderful guest blogger who will be sharing with you all a very yummy slow cooker (crock-pot) recipe. Please make her feel very welcome with warm comments.
So lets welcome
Adrian Peterson
Who blogs over at Life With Garnish. She is a wife and mother to five (includes two sets of twins). She home schools her oldest son because of the extreme difficulty he was having in school. When they decided to pull him from school two years ago he barely knew his alphabet. Now he can read, spell, complete basic math problems, and tell time. She quit work as a Finance Manager in a non-profit organization to be able to focus on him. Going from a two income to a one income family has been a big adjustment and a lot of sacrifice for all of them. But they stuck with it because they love their Tyler. She started her blog a little of six months ago to give herself an outlet (some me time, if you will). She mostly shares with her audience inexpensive meals that are almost completely homemade. She also shares some homemade cleaning products that she likes to use. Last, but not least, she hosts a link party every Tuesday with her blogging buddy, Bobbi, from 3GLOL.

So now on to the recipe:
