Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #379

Messy Messy Fail - We need to start getting the bedrooms ready for the baby - the room we are moving the 9 year old in is a giant playroom currently covered in toys and clothes.  I'm going to be totally honest, I don't even know where to begin :O

Tidy Victory - I can't believe I am posting on time, it's quite the miracle actually.

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #378

Messy Messy Fail - As my belly grows bigger and bigger, fewer and fewer clothes are fitting me.  Oh by the way did I mention I'm about 20 weeks pregnant?  So there's that.......

Tidy Victory - Everyone - mama and baby - are doing just fine.  We are actually going for our 20 week check up this week, can't wait to hear the heartbeat again!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #375

Messy Messy Fail - I did it again.  Maybe I should just assume it's going to be this way.  

Tidy Victory - My middle island garden is actually looking quite spectacular!  It's taken a few years but things are filling in quite nicely and there will be flowers in bloom throughout the season - hooray!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #373

Messy Messy Fail - We are somewhat serious campers - I wouldn't say avid, but we really enjoy it and make several camping reservations a year.  We've never been able to camp Memorial Day weekend but this year we can, so I nonchalantly tried making a reservation.  Only to find that this is THE weekend for camping, so NOTHING is available.  I will not give up in my quest!

Tidy Victory - I posted the link party on time today, yay for me! :D

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #372

Messy Messy Fail - I didn't forget to post this week's link party or anything!  I ALWAYS post five days after the party has started.

Tidy Victory - Even though I was super late posting this party, I got lots of extra sleep this week :D

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #371

Messy Messy Fail - Apparently rosemary is one of the most difficult herbs to kill.  And yet, I've killed another rosemary plant.  I think I have a gift.

Tidy Victory - WE HAVE BLUEBIRDS IN ONE OF OUR BLUEBIRD HOUSES.  Can you tell I'm excited? :D

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #370

Messy Messy Fail - I had made it a goal to either A) clean out my 6-year-olds room or B) clean out the playroom over our spring break.  Neither happened.  Oh well.

Tidy Victory - For the first time in their existence, both of my OLD cats were given a bath and I didn't bleed to death!  When they were younger, they were much more feisty and quick to anger.  They do not have front claws but they could still get me good with their back claws.  Either way, as they get older they are seemingly more stinky and gross and less willing to groom themselves.  So, in the kitchen sink with some Dawn detergent dish soap they went!  I think they enjoyed it. :D

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #369

Messy Messy Fail - I am staring at a laundry bin full of clothes that still needs to be folded that has been sitting in a corner of the living room for at least a week.  Tomorrow maybe.  But probably not.

Tidy Victory - We are all set for Easter - eggs are hidden, baskets are strategically placed, food is in the fridge.  I use the same dinner menu for Easter every year - grilled fresh polish sausage, pierogies (I made them myself this year!), mizeria (a cucumber type salad), homemade applesauce and rye bread.  One of my favorite meals, not to mention with the butter lamb!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #368

Messy Messy Fail - Just in case you missed it on my IG stories this week, I definitely went to work with multiple holes in the pants I was wearing.  And I had no idea until about 9:30 that morning.  I stayed in my classroom by myself.

Tidy Victory - The garden is starting to wake up and I couldn't be more excited.  A few daffodils next to the white barn bloomed, various crocuses and the hyacinths are getting ready to show off.  I can't wait to smell them out there!
