Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #338

Messy Messy Fail - Being gone camping for as long as we were over the summer, the flower and veggie gardens have become over-run yet again with weeds.  I'm trying to spend just an hour or so every night ripping out weeds and cutting back over grown flowers.  It's slowly getting back to normal but MAN weeds grow fast.

Tidy Victory - I stopped at a local Mennonite-owned grocery store to see what they have (lots of almost expired, over-stock, etc.) and they had a BOX of Sally Hansen one step nail-polish bottles for $1 each!  What did I do?  I TOTALLY bought a bottle in every color - $7 for seven new colors, let's see how long it wears for!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #337

Messy Messy Fail - After a summer of camping essentially, all of the gardens are a mess of weed and overgrown nonsense again.  Also I discovered a vital mistake in my vegetable garden layout - tall plants like tomatoes should go in the BACK of the garden where they won't cover up all the other plants, not the front :D. Maybe I'll get a pepper this year - woot woot!

Tidy Victory - My youngest and I are on a geocaching kick!  To date we have found 28 caches since July 27 and we are loving it!  My goal this fall is to set up some caches of our own - there are not a lot in this area but we have so many amazing spots to hide one!  Not sure what geocaching is?  Check out their website and join in the world's largest treasure hunt!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #336

Messy Messy Fail - As I am a big donator of clothing, I have a pile of boys clothes that has been sitting on our dining room table since January.  I had the best intentions of going through them but then March happened. I do hear that Salvation Army is open again!

Tidy Victory - For whatever reason, I am more motivated THAN EVER to get nonsense in this house IN ORDER before schools starts.  Next up - the dining room!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #335

Messy Messy Fail - I LOVE getting my nails done - either gel or dip - but when they start to grow out and chip on the ends, WHAT A MESS!  My hologram nails looked great for camping, but now, just ratchet.

Tidy Victory - We came back from camping and the veggie garden has EXPLODED (figuratively, not literally, in a good way!).  I've been giving away cucumbers because there are TOO MANY and we couldn't eat them all if we wanted to!  Here's to lots of homegrown veggies!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #334

Messy Messy Fail - Is it just me or does it just take, oh, an hour, for a clean house to become a complete disaster yet again?  I am weary of picking up - maybe if I throw items on the front lawn they will be put back after being used :D

Tidy Victory - We've got veggies in the garden!  I spy tomatoes (still green), cucumbers, zucchini and a few green bell peppers so far.  I planted very little in the veggie garden this year, just plants I had purchased at a green house, in order to focus more on the flowers this year.  Its still so satisfying to see veggies forming though!  Do you have a veggie garden?
