Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #245

Messy Messy Fail -Didn't I watch some poor woman do it this morning - you know, get to the cashier to check out and realize you don't have your credit card on you.  I waited patiently behind her, Lord knows it's happened to me before and I was so embarrassed.  Well, would you know it was my turn this evening when I got into the checkout line in Walmart.  I had to reload everything off of the belt back into my cart so I could run back out to my car to find my darn credit card.  That was no coincidence, my friends.......  

Tidy Victory - We are having a family birthday party for my 1st grader tomorrow and I have never been more prepared - cake is baked, balsamic corn & black bean salsa is marinating and the pizza is ordered.  It's always fun to have everyone in our family over for a party!

Welcome back to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party #245

Hey hey hey everyone - my name is Katie from Love My Messy Messy Mess and it is my turn to host the Happiness Is Homemade Link Party for the month of November!  I am so excited to have you join me this week to see all the amazingness that you bloggers are ready to share with us, and I know our readers are ready to check out your latest and greatest posts!

Every week my fellow co-hosts and I will be posting the weekly link party along with my favorite posts from the previous week.

SOOOOOOOOOOO let's get started!  Halloween is over and now I'm thinking about Thanksgiving and *cue scary music* CHRISTMAS!  These holidays are right around the corner and I NEED to get my dupa (Polish word for butt) into GEAR!

This Week's Features!

I have a ton of apples left over from picking and I need to use them up - I think I'm going to try making Marilyn's Apple Cinnamon Monkey Bread!

I love making homemade gifts for people, and I think these DIY Farmhouse Coasters by Lisa S of Fresh Vintage would be a great hostess gift if you are going somewhere for Thanksgiving dinner!

For whatever crazy reason, I'm getting into a deep-cleaning mode to get ready for the holidays and winter in general.  I almost ALWAYS use homemade vinegar cleaners to do the job - check out this list of how to use Natural Cleaning with Vinegar  from Chas' Crazy Creations.  Great for the environment and your bank account!

I love making soups as the days get colder, and this Savory Roasted Pumpkin Soup from Shoetring Elegance looked absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS!

And finally, this little post just made me giggle - I think it's funny but she called it a fail, How To Fail Miserably at Gnome Making from The Boondocks Blog.

Now on to the party!
