Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #268

Messy Messy Fail - NEVER tell your kid that the water slide you are about to take them down IS NOT the slide they already went down and were petrified of.  We did the walk of shame - see below for clarification.  

Tidy Victory - What a long winter it has been - we had our spring break last week and it was MUCH NEEDED.  We ended up going to Great Wolf Lodge in Ontario, Canada for a night and had a FANTASTIC time (with the exception of the above incident).  It is a hotel/indoor waterpark with food, a spa, story time, a bowling alley and an INCREDIBLE water slide selection.  We always have a very easy time crossing the boarder with the kids into Canada - it's barely a 2 hour drive for us!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #267

Messy Messy Fail - I had the LAMEST day on Thursday - everything from the bank being closed to no lemons at the grocery story went down.  Therefore, fate says I will not have a bad day like that again until 2020 :D

Tidy Victory - Easter basket items were ready in plenty of time, food purchased, house pretty clean.  I am looking forward to a relaxing Easter Sunday!  Happy Easter to you and your families!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #266

Messy Messy Fail - So today is actually the UPK'ers birthday - he's 5!  He requested a Power Ranger cake, totally doable.  However I did not realize that Power Ranger's are not currently a thing except in my son's world.  I ran to Walmart to pick up a few figures to put on his cake - none to be found.  #momfail

Tidy Victory - He had a great family birthday party for him yesterday with lots of food, family and fun!  His request for food was the following - "A giant pool of tomato soup and bouncy grilled cheese".  He's very creative.  Here are the recipes I used or the BEST tomato soup courtesy of the Pioneer Woman and the BEST grilled cheese sandwich from Taste of Home.  Killer.

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #265

Messy Messy Fail - Our 2nd floor shower is leaking with no end in sight.  My husband initially thought it was one of the pipes, but after that was replaced it started leaking again.  Looks like we may have to replace the ENTIRE shower - I hear *ca-ching ca-ching ca-ching*

Tidy Victory - Today was the first 65 degree (maybe even 70, forgot to check!) day that we were HOME and could work OUTSIDE!  Almost all of the gardens are raked and ready for mulch, stones or whatever the heck we are putting down.  We have NEVER been able to do this so early, so that's a nice big check off of our list!
