Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #159


Messy Messy Fail - Second flat tire this winter, I found a giant screw in my front driver's side the other day!  I was able to limp around town until my husband could get the donut on.  And what an ugly donut it is, I feel judged.

Tidy Victory - I just go sick and tired of tripping over flip-flops in the garage that today, I finally gathered ALL of them up and placed them in a tote in the basement.  No need to keep summer shoes out in the dead of winter, even if it was 64 degrees out today ;)

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #158

Messy Messy Fail - I had such a good time at dinner & a comedian last night that I forgot to get my code for this party ready!

Tidy Victory - At least I woke up and remember to put it up! :)  I've said it before and I'll say it again, it's the small things people :)

Messy Messy Fail -  Yup, forgot to post this again.  This link party is now closed.

Tidy Victory - BUT you can still look around and check out all the amazing posts that our bloggers have shared - JUST DO IT!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #156


Messy Messy Fail - It's always the laundry - or should I say the laundry monster.  Looming, lurking, ALWAYS.

Tidy Victory - I was finally able to take some time and reorganize our crazy pantry in the basement.  It became WAY too easy to come home from grocery shopping and just plop all the bags on the floor in FRONT of the pantry instead of in it.  All back to how it should be now, and it only took 15 minutes.  Way did I wait so long?!?!?!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #155



Messy Messy Fail - It's NEVER too late to dig up those plants that you were supposed to extract from the ground in October.  Especially when you have an unseasonably warm day of 57 degrees in Western New York!

Tidy Victory - Got all of the empty beer bottles we had just been tossing out into the garage back to the recycling center for our refund and SURPRISE - this month's mortgage is on our favorite craft beer breweries!  I kid - but I still got about $15 bucks back - sweet!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #154




Messy Messy Fail - I cannot even put into words how disorganized and crazy I have felt lately - unbelievable!!!  I blame Friday the 13th.

Tidy Victory - I at least got my act together enough to get this party posted unlike last week :)  I still blame Friday the 13th.

Happiness Is Homemade Link Up #152


Messy Messy Fail - Happy New Year everyone!  In all of our holiday traveling, I definitely forgot to find someone to take care of the cats while we were away  Of course one of my awesome babysitters was available but MAN I can't believe I forgot to do that.  

Tidy Victory - I somehow managed to bake 8 dozen cookies on Christmas Eve.  I used to take a day off from work to bake all day long but that just didn't work out this year.  Cookies turned out great and the boys loved helping me mix, roll, place and decorate!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #151


Messy Messy Fail - My least favorite chore?  Shoveling.  I'd rather clean toilets.  So having to shovel 3 times in one day is a serious problem.  Welcome to Western New York!

Tidy Victory - I somehow managed to shovel 3 times in one day.  Unheard of!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #150


Messy Messy Fail - So yeah, I COMPLETELY forgot to post this party until now, Sunday night at 11:49 EST.  That's a pretty big fail I'd say!

Tidy Victory - I have been systematically trying to take something out of my closet to donate/toss every time I go in to get something to where.  I have built up quite the pile AND made room for new fun clothes. :)  Win win!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #149


Messy Messy Fail - Where do you think my canna lilies and elephant ear plants still are?  That's right - in the ground and snowed upon.  Gotta get them out before they turn to mush!

Tidy Victory - I have somehow managed to stretch our last grocery visit to last two weeks.  Could that be due to my overcrowded panty?  No way, and if it was I would definitely still claim this as a victory! Way to not shop, go me!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #148



Messy Messy Fail - I knew that every month the Kindergartener's class was given a simple project to complete with family for a few weeks time.  But I had forgotten about the November project, that is until I saw all of the family turkeys displayed on the wall outside his classroom at parent teacher conferences.  We are handing it in on Monday.

Tidy Victory - I have discovered Carpool Karaoke with James Corden.  Brilliant.  Absolutely brilliant.  My favorite is when he had Sia with him - how funny were they together!!  Have you ever watched these?  If not, you should because it's amazingness with music.
