Tidy Tuesday

Welcome SITStas, and of course my regular peeps, to my own Spring Fling! Brandy at I'm Not Your Average Soccer Mom and I are having our own theme week and today happens to be Tidy Tuesday. My last Tidy Tuesday was actually Toilet Tuesday and depicted me cleaning a toilet June Cleaver style while, of course, wearing my pearls.

Today's Tidy Tuesday involves a giveaway and a clean kitchen, because who doesn't love giveaways AND clean kitchens? Oh, and I dusted off the pearls for Heather at Five Bucks.

I've been trying to eat all our meals at home and with 6 kids the kitchen tends to be a bit messy, most of the time. But I've also been trying really, really hard to keep my house cleaner and more picked up and some days it drives me a bit crazy.

I have to go baaaack!!!!
{Sorry, I've been watching a little too much LOST.}

Go back where?


To the (kitchen) island, of course. Do you think my children would buy it if I told them we all have to go back? And that we all have to clean? No? I didn't think so either. But I do think I'll start calling us the S7. (Referencing the Oceanic 6.)

{If you don't watch LOST and you've been living under a rock, I apologize for my many LOST references. Once I started this semi LOST themed post I had to take it home, baby.}

But there is a way for you to avoid this dilemma.

Enter to win my giveaway! I'm giving away $25 gift certificate to On the Border,Chili's, Romano's Macaroni Grill, or Maggianio's Little Italy. All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me that don't want to go back (to the kitchen island) either. The giveaway will open at 12:01 Tuesday March 10 and end at 11:00 p.m. CDT.

Oh, and if you are an anonymous commenter or don't have your email linked to your profile, could you save me a bit of research and leave your email in your comment? Thanks!

And when your done showing me your comment love, hop on over to Brandy's to see her own Tidy Tuesday and see what she's giving away. Meet you over there-- I'm headed there right now! I'm feeling lucky!

You're such a riot!!

I'd love to have a kitchen island, if for nothing more than to velcro the children and the dog to it while I cook, avoiding all the tripping hazard fun!!

Heather said...

I would just love one day where the island was just that an island removed from the kitchen clutter. :)

Cindy said...

Our kitchen island is such a "gathering spot".

TattooedMinivanMom said...

I actually would like to go back to my kitchen island if I had one....but wait....then I would lose all of my break dancing room. Never mind!

I don't want to go back cause then I won't be able to bust a move!

Visiting from Brandy.

Just A Chic... said...

I would love to go to my kitchen island...if I had one, which I will one day. Let's just hope it comes with a house attached to it!

Holly Jones said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I HATE to cook, and I'm horrible at it too.
Plus my daughter cries for my husband to cook her food, cause she knows it will taste better. hollybjones@yahoo.com

Anne said...

Woo hoo - what a great giveaway! I hate to cook since I have NO dishwasher!! Ahh!!

Rachel Ann said...

alas, no kitchen island for me, but i do have a kitchen bar that just collects crap!

Mamarazzi said...

H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S~~

Happy Spring Fling SITSta!

Lorna said...

I don't want to go back to my kitchen because I have a family of five and an apartment sized, no more like one of those motel kitchenettes, kitchen. I couldn't stand in the middle with my arms outstreched and turn around without clearing my counters off.

Shannon said...

I don't have a kitchen island to go back to! :(

But I'd go back to it, if I had one.

Happy Spring Fling!

T said...

but if I win I don't have to clean the counters one night at least... and I'd use the entire meal to discuss LOST theories with random strangers - as an homage :)

Tori C. (The Sweet Jelly Bean) said...

Your kitchen looks suspiciously like ours and we don't even have kids! :)

Patrice said...

Lol I don't watch Lost so a lot of that was lost on me, but I'll just go with I don't want to go back to the Island either! I live in a sorority house, and our kitchen can get pretty messy too!

Kristen said...

I'll do anything to avoid my kitchen (unless to get coffee). Except, I wouldn't clean yours.

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

That is so funny...I just left a comment at Brandy's site that cooking dinner is my least favorite chore. And it's because I hate my kitchen and the mess THAT WILL NOT GO AWAY!

Happy Tidy Tuesday!

jori-o said...

I definitely DON'T want to go back if that's what it'd look like (which, at my house---is what it will look like!!)

But count me in for your fab giveaway! =)

Megan said...

You so funny! :0P

I've never watched Lost, but I'll just take your word for it because I know you sit in a Lost Zone ignoring your children while they take pictures of you starring at the tv not even noticing you. LOL

I love food and I love those restaurants! Mmmmm........

Adrian's Crazy Life said...

Definitely NOT lovin' the kitchen island. We had mac & cheese for dinner tonight. Taste, but bad for the diet! Pop by my blog to win a Stampin' Up! stamp set.

Joelle said...

I would a) love a kitchen island and b) a maid. But I'd settle for a delightful gift card! :)

Stop by my place to participate in a relaxtion giveaway!

Tanielle said...

I Love Lost!!! But no island for me, infact the kitchen is closed I would love to win!

Tiffany said...

My island is a display area.... but that area next to the sink... I want to get far away.

Tiffany

TuTu's Bliss said...

Yummy! I don't watch lost but they were filming it across the beach and my husband pretended like he didn't know me because I was stalking the cast ;)

~~gail~~mooselovingmamabear said...

I love Lost...my kitchen island is the whole counter top....hahaha surrounded by my sea of two dogs hoping I drop something their way.

Great giveaway, BTW...

Wendyburd1 said...

ohh I am so over cooking !! pick me!!

Vic said...

haha! Our kitchen island is a paper mob at the moment. We only have Chili's around here but this post just made me laugh.

Barely Domestic Mama said...

I don't want to go back to the island either! My kitchen is a hot mess right now. And unfortunately my toddler makes more of a mess than actually cleaning anything. :) Love the Lost references, I just started watching it.

Happy Spring Fling!

Mimi said...

I don't even have an island. I have literally 3 feet of counter space. Total!

Save me!

LenaLoo said...

The only way I'd go back to kitchen island is if it had self washing dishes and a no-burn stove and oven :)... I would love to enter for a GC to Macaroni Grill! Happy Spring Fling!

Sarah said...

I don't want to go back to the island! I want to go get a pepercorn crusted hamburger from Chilis!!

Carla said...

Add me in! Thanks SISTA!

LoveMy2Dogs said...

Oh, to not have to cook. I would love to stay away from that island (counter for me).

April said...

Would LOVE to win...I definitely don't want to go back to the kithchen, either! :) Happy Spring Fling!

AndreaLeigh said...

my kitchen island is a hot mess, and it stays that way 24/7.

carma said...

noooo. keep me away from the kitchen. I don't want to go back!

The Gotch 5 said...

Honey, if you saw my island oasis you would know I haven't been there in a week! Three emergency room visits and one hospital stay equal a very dirty deserted island!! If I head to any island it is going to be far far away from here!! Happy Tuesday!!
If I have to head back and I will soon so we have clean bottles (since the baby thinks she needs to eat).....maybe I will try adding pearls does it help??!!

Future Mama said...

haha! I hate the kitchen all together.. that's why I want that Chili's card! haha!! Hope I win!!

babymakingmachine at gmail.com

wendy said...

I don't have an island either, and I don't watch Lost, although everyone tells me to. So I will just stick with "calgon, take me away".
really showing my age!!

Laura said...

Thanks for the chance to win!! I'm just dreamin' about my new kitchen island....it comes with the new house we're hoping to buy soon!

Judy @ In His Grip said...

No I will not go back to the island because I'm eating at Chili's, Yeah!

Tiffany said...

I love to go to my kitchen island but not if I have to clean it!

Jill said...

I love theme week at YOUR place Denise!! I do NOT want to go back to the island...but if I won't WHO WILL?!?!?
Okay...off to visit Brandy!
Have a STELLAR day!
Hugs!
Jill

Beth said...

I only wish I had a kitchen island. We love Chili's! manicmotherme@gmial.com

Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

I always wonder why my family puts the dishes on the counter or in the sink when the dishwasher is open and I've already loaded all the other dishes...and where on earth did they get the idea that I was a waitress...uhg.

Great giveaway...I'm taking a girlfriend out!!

Susie said...

I love Chili's! Count me in:-)

Kari said...

Fun giveaway!

I don't want to go back - my kitchen island is covered in mail and papers that I need to go through.

Thanks!

Kat said...

Oh, count me in as a LOST lover...and lately a kitchen avoider :-) The Chili's gift card will be well loved.

Aileigh said...

I don't have a kitchen island... yet! I will when we build our new house this year! Could really use that GC cause we are savin for the house and trying not to eat out much! I LOVE Macaroni Grill! Count me in!

Amber said...

I don't want to go back to the kitchen either....but I do want to go to Chili's!!!!

Regina said...

I LOVE my kitchen island. The thing I hate about my kitchen is that the kids don't do their chores to my standards. I hate going in my kitchen after they say that they are finished because I always find something they didn't do. It is a great excuse for not baking cookies though. I can't stand to make anything in a kitchen that is messy.
I am so confused with Lost. We just finished watching the second season and Libby got shot. Isn't she the person you referred to as Juliet in the most recent episode? Maybe I shouldn't have read your review after all!! I really don't need any more confusion in my life. LOL
Blessings,
Regina

nikkicrumpet said...

My kitchen Island is clean and doesn't have anything non-decorative on it. Not because I'm one of those clean freaks...but because I NEVER cook! I don't want to go back to my kitchen...EVER...so help a fellow sistah out and please enter me in your giveaway!

Brandy said...

I love it! I knew your post would be awesome...how could I ever top that picture? Oh that's right I have a very similiar one as my profile pic...with the exception of the pearls. I don't have pearls. :[

BTW I DON'T WANNA GO BACK!!

Alicia @ Oh2122 said...

You are a HOOT!

Happy Spring Fling!

Jingle said...

Oh, YIKES! We have cut our budget a ton and that means eating at home WAY more than we used to! I understand the mess! It's amazing how many dishes get used when you actually COOK! LOL! I don't want to go back!!!!

Joy said...

I don't have an island but I do have a bar in the kitchen that is collection central. :o)

Joy <--visiting from SITS

Nessa said...

I have no kitchen island, but will have after our remodel is done. But, it will probably endup like ever other flat service in the house, covered with misc. stuff! I can tell you that I don't want to go back..back to a sink full of dirty dishes!Thanks for the chance to win!

Our Crazy Life said...

My kitchen is under construction. The floors are done, but cabinets and counter tops are still being worked on and it looks like a bomb went off in there.

Ronnica said...

I live in an apartment, so my kitchen is tiny. If we let dishes stack up, they take up every inch of cabinet space.

A friend and I love to go to Chili's together...so this would be great! I love how you tied the two together!

koopermom said...

LOL. I just spent over an hour in the kitchen cleaning it last night.

I DESERVE this gift certificate!! :)

DawnS said...

We have been doing all our eating at home too and I DON't want to go back - I want to eat out! Like we used to and someone else cleans up... ahhh...the good old days!

bigjohnsgirl said...

I love to cook I just hate to clean up afterwards!

ScrappinAway said...

Okay so I am completely Lost...never seen the show, guess I do live under a rock! But I do know about Chili's and would love to win!

Lorie said...

Okay, I don't want to go back to your island...I clean enough dishes...haha. But I would like to join your theme week next time, if you'll let me know...I was up all night and already have my multipurpose Monday post ready to go in my head...haha

Angie H. said...

I don't want to go back to the kitchen island until the maid has it all cleaned up and ready for me to cook on again... :) Dreaming big here... :) My family of five makes a BIG mess in the kitchen.

lmt1073 said...

ahhhh, i love chili's!!! their southwestern egg rolls are the best!!!

Michaela said...

I don't have a kitchen island that I don't want to go back on... the kitchen is just too small, but I do have kitchen counters that I don't want to go back to!

Lolli said...

Love Lost!
I don't want to go back, either! I want a giftcard! Pick me!!

Michelle said...

If only I had a kitchen island! But I do have a breakfast bar and it is spic and span. ;)

Heather said...

I live under a rock, but it is a cozy rock ;) Thanks for putting on the pearls for me again. You look stunning in them.

Thanks for the shout out, Denise.

Shannon said...

I, too, am loving some Sawyer, err, I mean Lost. And since we've had the flu, I definately ain't cooking anything anytime soon. Thanks!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I do watch LOST! :)

You have a wonderful blog! I am visiting via Sits. I hope you will stop by and enter my giveaway too.

Ashley said...

Oh my goodness, I definitely don't want to go back to your island. I have problems with my own island and I only cook for myself and my husband!

Happy Spring Fling :)

Whimsical Creations said...

HOW FUN! No I don't want to go back to your kitchen island. I don't want to go back to mine either. *sigh* need to go back to mine and do the dishes.

Happy spring fling!

Craftymoose Crafts said...

I don't have a kitchen island and wouldn't want to go back to it if I did! But I do want some Chili's Baby Back Ribs!!!

Nikki B. said...

No...I would never go back. Well, I would say that, of course...but, just like the show...something would lure me back...

Probably not dead guys and time travel...probably not a lost love, or a semi-evil, semi-not guy like Ben.

No, I wouldn't go back for those things. I would most likely go back for:

Curtains that need to be sewn and the island is big enough to lay out the fabric.

Dioramas and posterboards projects for school.

Last night's dinner.

Yesterday's mail.

Forgotten homework.

Matchbox cars and toy guns.

Candy...most likely it's wrapper.

My protein shakes that have been sitting there for a month...left there to remind me to start my diet. I'm starting tomorrow!!

I could go on, and on, and on...

Trying Traditional said...

Uummmmm, yeah, I am one of those that lives under a rock but I'll bit and say I don't want to go back to the island.

My kitchen island and I have a love-hate relationship going on. Its 3ft by 4ft of flat space, a rarity in my home. However right now it has my laptop on it, bandaides, two stuffed animals, variouse books, a new pair of shoes, cd's, pencil sharpener, school paperwork, and a jumping frog. I love it when it is clean, hate that it is never clean. Today, though is the day. I ahve some baking to do and the island will get cleaned!

April said...

Love the pearls! I would love an evening off from cooking and doing dishes.

Tracy Reynolds said...

I hate doing dishes, actually have a dish washer, but never use it. I believe it requires more work than I care to do. I would love a kitchen island, but afraid that would be more room for dishes to stack......have a great day....I'm off to tackle my island of dishes in the kitchen!

Lani said...

Dishes stink!:) I try to use as few as possible, eating over the sink whenever possible:)
Chili's would be even better!

Sarah@VintageChic said...

I don't even have a kitchen island - wish my kitchen was big enough for one though!

Classy in Philadelphia said...

I don't cook, but I do love Lost....a whole lot. Sad it isn't on tomorrow :(

Great giveaway!

Tricia said...

I wish I had a kitchen island, but then I would have no room left in my sad, small kitchen.

Superjaxster said...

No kitchen island here. But sadly, every other flat surface in that room is covered. Oh crap, that means I have to clean :oP

birrrd said...

I don't want to go back either! Actually to the whole kitchen. My daughter sprayed a crazy amount of air freshener all over the room without me knowing it and I can't seem to get the stickiness off of the floor. I need to go scrub again! Thanks for the chance to win!!! Chilis is my favorite restaurant!!!!

Songbirdtiff said...

Great giveaway! I'm happy to say that my husband does the bulk of the dishes in our house. I'm lucky that way!

:)

Annikke said...

How funny! I don't want to go back either! LOL

Jermaine said...

No, I do NOT want to go to the kitchen island. Messy as heck.

Ritch in Love said...

Oh, a fellow LOST fan...you're my kinda woman! LOVE the Chili's gift card, BTW: always in the mood for some Baby Back Ribs!

The Cookie Girl said...

Kitchen Clutter is always on the bar. Why is that.
Love that gift card giveaway.

Amy said...

Man we haven't eaten out in SO long and my kitchen is always a disaster! Thanks for the giveaway.

Joanna said...

I don't want to go back, either! Why is my kitchen *never* clean???

auntrene said...

My kitchen doesn't have an island, instead it has the Dump... you know the kitchen table, everyone Dumps stuff there and leaves it. Dirty dishes, newspapers, coats, back packs.
As for Islands, I could use an Island right now, preferably somewhere warm, beach, cold drink, OOOhhh sounds wonderful.
Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

Double Dipped Sweets said...

I would LOVE a night out! I can't go back to my island for another few days. The kitchen is being painted, and when that dries I have orders to do...and kids to feed....oh. just thinking about it gives me a headache!

Reeni♥ said...

I don't want to go back!! Isn't Lost crazy? As in twisted!! Great giveaway!

Katie said...

Chili's is one of my favorite restaurants, I'd love to win a free night out on the town with my hubby!

Bar-b said...

I hate that island :( yikes.

great giveaway! Love their margaritas :)

Rachel said...

I don't want to go back to my kitchen! Chili's is sounding much better to me.

chris said...

I would love to win! oh a night free of cooking, that would be nice considering my boys are eating us out of our home.

Heather said...

It's pretty ironic that I just told myself I would finally go and clean the kitchen after reading one more blog!

scottsgal said...

I so don't want to go back to that kitchen island - me and cooking are not the best of friends

msboatgal at aol dot com

All-American Preppy said...

I definitely don't want to go back to the kitchen island either--it is ridiculous how many dishes I have to wash... and by hand to make it worse, we have no dishwasher! But I sure do love the pasta at Macaroni Grill... and I don't have to clean any dishes when I eat there!!!

Donna said...

YOu are a mess and I love it! Please enter moi...I don't want to go back (to the kitchen island) either! :)

shortmama said...

Don't make me go back!!! Send me to Chili's!

Joshswife said...

Great giveaway!

Cassandra said...

I wish I had an island, but wait does that mean I have to cook? Nevermind I'll just go to chilis!

Jennie said...

Fingers crossed! And I absolutely love lost. I have all of the first four seasons.

Molly said...

No island...but a bar. It currently has hair dye, mail, spray paint, coronas and produce on it. If it was only the coronas, I would go in a heartbeat!

Dee said...

LOL!! I dont wanna go back either! But my island doesnt have a sink..just a junk drawer..or two! Plus stuff taking over the top!

Jill said...

I so do not want to go back!

Ginny said...

I've always wanted a kitchen island :)

LivingInspired said...

Well, with no island in my tiny apartment kitchen, I'd have to be a non-believer and say what island, where people time travel, there's random people following random people and now, coming back from the dead?

Sharlene said...

You are making me hungry!

Bethany said...

The kitchen island is one I want to leave deserted! Especially at the end of a long week of teaching!

Melissa said...

I love your blog design! So cute! And I would love to win the gift certificate! Our dishwasher is broken and I have a whole counter of dishes that I have to tackle tonight. I would love to go out to dinner!

Kevin

Janna Bee said...

I hate cleaning up the kitchen! I try to cook as little as possible! Is that a goal I should aspire to, I don't know but it works for me!

Janne said...

I can't go back---please don't make me go back! Wait---is Sawyer involved in the going back? In that case I will go back, but I'll need that gift card to take him out on the town. Hold on, there's no Chili's on the Island...oh well, I'll adapt somehow! :)

Cindy DG said...

I don't have a kitchen island but the rest of the counters collect stuff! :)

I was hoping you were giving away the clean kitchen or cleaning lady in a box. Either would do these days! I am years behind on Lost but you are making me want to get the episodes through Netflix. So I will go back or won't go back. Will beg for prize...anything to avoid cooking!

Jessica said...

I wish I had a kitchen island! But I do have a bar that collects TONS of junk!

Musings of a Homeschooling Mom said...

I don't want to go back! I wish I had a kitchen island! What a great giveaway!

Fun! I wish my kitchen had an island. But, then that would probably just end up being another catch all spot. Nope...don't want to go back...but must.

momma said...

i don't have a kitchen island, either, but i don't want to go back because it's too close to the pit of despair (aka the laundry room)

Katie Stacey said...

I love Lost! And I definitely DON'T want to go back to the island. Hate cooking...love eating out.

I don't want to go back. I have no island, my tables covered with clean dishes waiting to put themselves away.

Since money's tight I've been cooking at home alot lately. I'd love to get away from the hot kitchen and the sink-full of dishes for a night out!
Thanks for hosting :)

Our kitchen island started as a great hang out but is now more like a desk covered in mail and school papers UGHH... and I still have to clean off the dishes! I could use a dinner out!

I so don't want to return to the kitchen. My garbage needs to be emptied!

Lori said...

I could use a Chili's Gift card :)

My kitchen is probably the size of your kitchen island! LOL I don't want to go back because then I'll wish I lived somewhere else, which really isn't an option right now.

You want it? Baby, you got it?

Sorry - couldn't help it. Saw a break dancing post earlier and had to break out some TUNES!

My fam WOULD be lost without our kitchen island. It's our home. The core of our family. The gathering spot. The party scene. The....you get it!!

Thanks to you I am now watching Lost since I am addicted to both your blog and LOST now. I am on season 3 and am neglecting my family to watch all 5 seasons in record time! I don't want to go back to the island, unless Jack is there.....By the way, why do you like bad boy Sawyer. He is hot, but such a bad boy. I hope the internet dating does NOT get you a bad boy cause you need a good boy that likes to bounce LOTS of children on his knee and bad boy Sawyer isn't what you need. Sawyer is a want, not a need! :) You need a Jack........ grin :)
