Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #163


Messy Messy Fail - Since I got back from Chicago late Monday night and we were stuck inside on Tuesday and Wednesday night, that meant no grocery shopping this week.  This means some scrounging together some creative meals.  Let's just say they were pretty creative.

Tidy Victory - So far this week, I've reorganized the junk drawer AND the snack cupboard, cause no one likes boxes of crackers falling on their heads :P

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #162











Messy Messy Fail - I thought I remembered everything I needed to pack/do before leaving for my Chicago trip - until I got to the hotel and tried to freshen up my makeup.  No where in sight!

Tidy Victory - I was able to get this link party up while in Chicago, woo hoo!

Messy Messy Fail - Another missed party - I am going to burn in blogger Hades!

Tidy Victory - I was able to get everything ready that I needed to for my trip to Chicago - woo hoo!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #160


Messy Messy Fail - I was supposed to help move office furniture out of the office this morning for a board that I sit on.  Do you know that's it's been 50+ degrees for the last few days, and did you know today it decided to absolutely MONSOON outside?  

Tidy Victory - HUGE VICTORY that I was able to clean out Junk Drawer, which had so much junk in it that it didn't even close properly anymore.

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 :)

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #157

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!
