Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #188



Messy Messy Fail - The Big Boy (formerly the toddler) has SOOO MANY articles of clothing from gifts and hand me downs that I don't do his laundry in order to have enough room in his drawers!!!!  Like, I let it pile so high, like a leaning tower of laundry.  If I were to do that laundry and TRY to put it away, it would just end up in piles AROUND his dresser.  Now that's a lot of clothes!

Tidy Victory - Back to school for me and it feels really good to be back on a regular schedule!  I do love my summers with my family, but I was meant to be a teacher! :)

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #187



Messy Messy Fail - I cannot believe I bought light-up sneakers for the toddler.  He talked me into it.  I said I would never, but I gave in.

Tidy Victory - I have managed to make my gel manicure from the beginning of the month last until now - NO CHIPPING until today lol, but I think that's pretty darn good!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #186



Messy Messy Fail - Do any of you out there have one of those wall hang calendars where you have to reset the days of the month and such with little numbered tiles every month?  Let's just say it's been February in a our house for awhile, that is until my husband updated it to August.  

Tidy Victory - Back to school haircuts - check.  Car inspection - check.  Oil change and tire rotation - check.  Darn I'm good.

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #185



Messy Messy Fail - I bought all these lovely herbs at the beginning of summer to plant in a giant planter on the deck.  They are pretty dried up sitting in the original containers I bought them in.  I guess I'll be using dried herbs instead of fresh.

Tidy Victory - We scored some great deals for the kids to get their back-to-school sneakers - sleek grey Nikes for the Kindergartner Take-2 and light up Spiderman for the 3-year-old (we figured it was ok since he isn't in school yet).  Famous Footwear was buy 1 get one 50% off - I may be going back for a new pair of sneakers myself!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #184



Messy Messy Fail - You may recall that book that I borrowed from our local library 3 YEARS AGO.......well in order to borrow a DVD for the boys I had to sheepishly return the book.  They laughed, I paid my fine (which I'm happy to do, support your local library!) and my boys got their Little Einsteins DVD.  

Tidy Victory - I ACTUALLY got this party post up on the day of the party - what a concept lol!


Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #183



Messy Messy Fail - I am pretty sure the Kindergartener is taking clean clothes out of his drawers and dumping them in his hamper.  Yet I continue to not check and just do MOUNTAINS of laundry.  Gotta figure this out.

Tidy Victory - Super excited for my sister's bridal shower next weekend - I am the boss lady and we are ready to rock!!!!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #181


Messy Messy Fail - There were so many this week I couldn't even keep up.  Can we start with car brakes that are squealing so bad my children tell strangers about it? 
Tidy Victory - My husband and a good friend were able to change the brake pads themselves and saved us a ton of money - a big thank you to those two awesome guys! :)

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #180



Messy Messy Fail - In an attempt to equalize my gardens a bit, I had pulled out a few pieces from one of my ornamental grasses and replanted them on the other side of a tree that was completely bare.  They now look like dead cornstalks (PHOBIA!!!) - I'll have try again in the fall.

Tidy Victory - I cooked more dinners this past week then I have in MONTHS!  My goal is usually to cook 3 meals a week and enjoy leftovers on the others, a frozen pizza, etc.  Let's just say my family was very pleased with all of the food!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #179



Messy Messy Fail - I did something so dumb and stupid last week, and I was so dumbfounded by my own stupidity that I CANNOT EVEN REMEMBER what I did.  Now that's fail - I cannot recall my own fail.  Wow.

Tidy Victory - I pitted 12 cups of freshly picked cherries with an empty wine bottle and a chopstick - what a hack that was!!!!!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #178


Messy Messy Fail - As I listen to local folks setting off their fireworks in preparation for the 4th, our beagle is frantically licking and pawing at the inside of "her house".  I'm expecting quite the messy messy in the morning.

Tidy Victory - We've got our 4th of July plans ready to go - local parade in the morning and fireworks at night.  I just love this holiday and our great country!


Happiness is Homemade Link Party #177


Messy Messy Fail - I managed to completely forget to post this until the following weekend when I was supposed to be posting party #178.  Better late than never!

Tidy Victory - SCHOOL IS OUT FOR THE SUMMER!
