I realize this is my second post today. But I needed to get a few things off my chest.

This just came out of my car.


None of this is new stuff. Three grocery sized bags of toys, missing blueprints, scarf, umbrella, some shot gun shells (I kid you not). The big bag? trash.

Apparently there were some items that may have been missing quite a while.


And apparently I am ever-so-slightly unsmart. I just added myself to my followers.

I forgot to feed my hermit crabs for a week.

My new house has that lived in look, pride of ownership is obviously fading fast.

My Christmas tree isn't up yet.

There, I feel cleaner and lighter now.


Before you all send me letters or turn me in to someTV show like Hoarders or How Clean is Your House.....
I have set up a beautiful greeting station with all my prettiest Christmas decorations, potty trained my two year old, took my five year old shopping to spend her tooth fairy money, painted my peg board for storing craft supplies in my laundry/craft room, done some serious baking, helped my grandparents with their new cell phone, did a million bagillion loads of laundry, and moved my sofa for the million bagillionth time because the big honkin' sectional was not my idea and doesn't 'flow' in any direction.

There now I feel like I can face the world again.

I recently made homemade honey buns and used this recipe.    It has a distinct orange flavor and for that reason my children(hubby included) didn't think they tasted like honey buns.

The rolls were great. To me the orange flavor gives a little something extra. A matter of taste I guess.

Yesterday I made homemade peanut butter fudge (oops, you'd better wipe off that drool) using this recipe. It didn't have the ultra smooth 'chewy' texture I wanted like you get from Homestead Hollow but that was my fault after further research, I over stirred the boiling mixture. The taste was all there! Simple pantry ingredients happens to be my demise. I have to try it right then if I have all the ingredients:) This time I'm going to try this recipe, it seems a little more goof-proof. I'll let you know how it goes.

I have a kindergarten Christmas party to plan(Dec 18) as well as my soon to be six year old's birthday party to plan(Dec 13). Oh, and her special birthday snack for school (Dec 16). If there are any ideas floating around out there I would love to hear them!
