Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #248

Messy Messy Fail - I bought all of these discounted bulbs at Walmart to plant in the fall - Queen of the Night tulips, grape hyacinths, etc.  And then the snow fell, and I have not seen the ground since.  I'm praying for a little warm up before the ground freezes to get these babies in.  That's what I get for waiting!

Tidy Victory - All of the pumpkins and Halloween/Thanksgiving decorations are down.  The local deer are going to have a pumpkin feast on the side of the hill this week!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #247

Messy Messy Fail - I knew it was coming but I tried not to think about it - my old aluminum tablespoon finally broke off at the neck.  I am divested - do you think I could find another somewhere out there?  I don't think my baking will taste the same without it :(

Tidy Victory - I feel that it is a victory in that I am NOT putting up my Christmas decorations yet.  I feel strongly and firmly about this - no Christmas until AFTER Thanksgiving.  So I pat myself on the back for holding out!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #246

Messy Messy Fail - I went to Walmart with a list but left with a few extra items.  One of which I literally left in the Walmart parking lot underneath the shopping cart.  It was such a cute poinsettia doormat!

Tidy Victory - I made an AMAZING batch of cinnamon roll baked doughnuts today from Tornado Alli's new dessert cookbook that is going to be coming out REALLY soon - be watching for the link to purchase!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #245

Messy Messy Fail -Didn't I watch some poor woman do it this morning - you know, get to the cashier to check out and realize you don't have your credit card on you.  I waited patiently behind her, Lord knows it's happened to me before and I was so embarrassed.  Well, would you know it was my turn this evening when I got into the checkout line in Walmart.  I had to reload everything off of the belt back into my cart so I could run back out to my car to find my darn credit card.  That was no coincidence, my friends.......  

Tidy Victory - We are having a family birthday party for my 1st grader tomorrow and I have never been more prepared - cake is baked, balsamic corn & black bean salsa is marinating and the pizza is ordered.  It's always fun to have everyone in our family over for a party!
