Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #145

Messy Messy Fail - I was lookin' so cute and chic for my monthly date night with my husband.  We had dinner and then went to a movie (The Accountant, awesomeness!).   I was lookin' cute, that is, until I looked down after our movie and found giant butter stains all of my new top.  I'm such a slob!

Tidy Victory - We ended the evening at a local favorite - Southern Tier Brewery.  Not only do they sell delicious libations but CLOTHES too!  I scored a great Pumpkin T at 25% off - picture to follow soon!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #144

Messy Messy Fail - We lost the dish strainer for a hot second.  I thought perhaps our house cleaner had hid it from me to teach me a lesson.  It was under the sink.  *sigh*

Tidy Victory - We convinced the Kindergartener to not be a house for Halloween.  That's right folks - he requested a house costume, a white one at that.  I was absolutely baffled and scrambling for a play B that I could convince him of.  But when I realized that after watching Night on Bald Mountain from Disney's Fantasia for the 93282982023402934023 time and suggested he be the demon bat on top of the mountain, his eyes lit up and he said "Yes!".  So one bat cape and Batman (it has the word bat in it so it's acceptable) gauntlets later, we have a demon bat costume.

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #143

Messy Messy Fail - Have you ever forgotten to change the litter box?  Have you every forgotten to change the litter box for a week?  Enough said.

Tidy Victory - The Kindergartener was desperately in need of a fall jacket or vest - the kid seriously grew over night!  I knew I had $15 in rewards to use from my Banana Republic card (that you can charge Old Navy and Gap purchases on!) so off to our local Old Navy we went.  Kid picked out his yellow and blue puffy vest, we go to the counter, I present my phone with the $15 rewards coupon code on it.  I was pretty sure I'd have to pay at least $5 for the vest, but when the clerk (does anyone even use that word anymore?) rang us up, my balance came to $0.  So in conclusion, I would like to take this moment to thank Old Navy for my son's free puffy vest - you saved us from the chill of fall!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #142

Messy Messy Fail - Three times - count that THREE times - I spilled food today.  1 - A plate of uneaten spaghetti and a smashed meatball from the toddler.  2 - A mug of milk I was taking out the microwave (do anyone else's kids drink warm milk?).  3 - Half of a can of diet Pepsi (I guess that's what I get for drinking diet Pepsi).  What a messy, messy mess SERIOUSLY!

Tidy Victory - With the 2 bushels of apples we picked last weekend I made my first favorite apple recipe - Grandma's Apple Crunch.  I cannot tell you how glad I am that my mother-in-law gave me this recipe - it is seriously SO good and ooey-gooey.  Looking for a quick apple dessert that doesn't require a crust?  Try this one!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #141

Messy Messy Fail - I was packing up my inventory from my LuLaRoe launch party today (yay!) all by myself (THANK GOODNESS!) when I let a clothing rack tip over.  As in I let too many heavy items remain on one end, and the whole darn thing just flipped.  So glad NO ONE was around to see that.  

Tidy Victory - Other then my flipped clothing rack, I think my launch party was a success!  I've already ordered inventory to replace what I sold (gotta keep things new and fresh!) and am now getting ready for my ONLINE launch party TONIGHT 10/2 at 8 PM EST at LuLaRoe Katie Derrenbacher on FB.  There will be ANOTHER giveaway for all my shoppers who make a purchase so make sure to stop by - you never know what I'm going to have in my inventory!
