Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #463

Messy Messy Fail - I have got to figure out some new dinners to make that won't break the bank with the rising costs of groceries.  Seriously cannot believe how much we are paying for eggs, its nuts!

Tidy Victory - I discovered the scented laundry beads at Dollar Tree rumored to be misshapen Downey Unstoppables and I LOVE THEM.  They make the laundry smell SO GOOD and at $1.25 for a giant container, I am down!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #462

Messy Messy Fail - When you have pumpkins turning to mush in your garage that you need to harvest seeds from. :/

Tidy Victory - I back on the reading bandwagon and have already finished one book, Klara and the Sun, and will be starting my next shortly.  I used to read prolifically when I was in elementary and middle school, and I decided it was time to get back to that.

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #454

Messy Messy Fail - Well, I got the bulbs and perennials in.  That's about it for the garden this year.  Cold weather came on quick!

Tidy Victory - We are ready to decorate for Christmas sooner than ever!  Tree is up (we usually pick one out today but the weather called for rain, so we went yesterday) and ornaments will come out tomorrow.  Now I just need to find them......

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #453

Messy Messy Fail - Well, it's nearly Thanksgiving and I still haven't planted all of my bulbs OR perennials yet.  Do you think I'll get a break in the weather to get out there?

Tidy Victory - Halloween has been taken down, BUT I kept pumpkins up.  We DO NOT decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving in this house, no way man!
