Happiness Is Homemade Linky Party #104

Messy Messy Fail - The UPKer got all smiley faces on his school behavior chart for Thursday - I told him the day before that if he accomplished that, we would go to McDonald's to use his free sundae coupon he had received for Christmas.  While waiting in line to order, I decided to just get both boys a Happy Meal for dinner because we were running out of time before we were due at their haircut appointments.  In my rush to get them and the Happy Meals into the house, I happened to dump one completely out of the bag and into the freshly fallen snow.  Good thing that snow was clean.  And that they didn't notice the decreased temperature of the fries and nuggets.

Tidy Victory - My new snowmobile outfit is complete - picked up my sweet new helmet today!  It's by Divas Snow Gear - White Aztec modular helmet with pink accents and I LOVE it!  Now we just need snow.

Even the light is pink, I can't stand it!!

Can you believe January is half over? I could use a few extra days to keep organizing my house. I've been de-cluttering my kitchen which is nearly as hard as cleaning out the craft closet. That ONE item you NEVER use but MAY - do you keep it? Or donate it?
The struggle is real.
Then there is our Happiness is Homemade Link Party - So many delicious recipes, creative crafts, fabulous DIY projects and amazing tips - all in one place yet HOW do you decide on JUST four to feature!! This first party of the year was amazing and I've had such fun looking at all of the Hosts' blogs and all of the posts linked up.
In case you missed it, we've expanded our party to include 9 amazing bloggers to share in the duties of hosting Happiness is Homemade (that's 12 blogs your post will appear on). We couldn't be happier to have them with us.
So get your "clicking" finger ready and link up, browse, pin, drool, and dream with us!!
