Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #218

Messy Messy Fail - We have a Panasonic vacuum cleaner, the kind that you drag on the floor behind you.  What do they call that kind - canister?  Anyways, it's been making quite the high-pitched whining noise for a few months now.  We have one vacuum shop in town - "bad motor" they said.  All I could see was dollar signs.........

Tidy Victory - They were able to replace the bad motor with a used one from another vacuum!  Total money save and TOTALLY working again.  

Welcome back to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party!

It's Fiesta Time here on Happiness is Homemade! Our features this week will help you throw a fun Cinco de Mayo party or just enjoy some of the fabulous tastes of Mexico. We have a complete party plan plus recipes for a fabuloso meal with everything from appetizers to dessert.   I am excited to see what you bring to our party this week. Show us your best homemade goods and stop by to visit some of the other bloggers too.  

On with this week's features!


 Plan your party with A Colorful Cinco de Mayo Mexican Fiesta from A Bird's Party.


 What would a fiesta be without drinks? Try Taylor Bradford's Spicy Grapefruit Margarita to kick your party off.   

 Brandie from Home Cooking Memories teaches you how to make your own Restaurant Style Chipotle Salsa.
