Party in Your PJs 191--Link Party

Hello and welcome to our Link Party!  Where you can "party in your pjs"--sounds like a good idea to me!

I am packing and trying to get things here at home situated as we will be flying to meet little Oakli in a couple of days.  So excited to see her, play with 19 month old Parker, hug my daughter Staci, and even be nice to Jon (at least at first lol).

I also finally did a post on our Kitchen Remodel from this past summer.  I love my new kitchen!

Here are my picks for Features this week--make sure that you visit each host's blog as we all choose our own Features!

I am a Muddy Buddies fan so this recipe by Drugstore Divas is awesome!
#ad Looking for a snack for your sweet and salty craving? Peanut Butter Chocolate Muddy Buddies is perfect! Get the recipe at 

12 Creative and Smart Kitchen Storage Ideas by Artful Homemaking is just the thing to get organized!

Before you organize that kitchen, how about cleaning it with Basic Products?  From Chas' Crazy Creations.
