A Few of My Favorite Things

Okay, so like I promised, I'm back with a handful of my favorite things. :)

Let's get right to it with this Enjoy hair straightener.

I buy it on Amazon for about $10-$15. It's a gel consistency. I just wash my hair and towel dry it. Then I put the Enjoy on and blow dry it straight. I'm always looking for new products to help straighten my unruly curly hair and this one works great!

Speaking of hair, I've never spent a ton on shampoo. I usually buy Suave shampoos and conditioners. I guess I'm old fashioned because I still subscribe to the idea that it's good to use a "clarifying" shampoo every two weeks or so to strip your hair of all the product build up. 

So, this is what I've been using...

As you can see, it's still Suave brand. :) You can get it pretty much anywhere for under $2. I just buy it at the grocery store. Sometimes I use a lot of product in my hair and I feel this helps to kind of give it a deep clean. 

Now for the cat lovers out there. Santa brought Holly this spray cat nip for Christmas and she LOVES it! 

We've always used the dried catnip, but this is so much easier to use and less messy. I can spray it on any toy of hers and she goes wild. :) I even sprayed some on her scratching post and she LOVED that! We, I mean SANTA got it at Petsmart for $6. 

The last two are things we enjoyed at Christmas. I know, I know...you're wondering why I didn't share these BEFORE Christmas. Well, just think of it as being super early in planning for NEXT Christmas. :) 

This is hands down the best gingerbread house kit we've used. Here's what the box looks like...

Here's another pic of the one my son made that I put on Instagram...

Wilton gingerbread house made exclusively for Michael's stores

You can probably see it's made exclusively by Wilton for Michael's stores. My youngest son built it and he was impressed with how well the icing "glued" everything together. Apparently the icing REALLY held the roof and sides together and made it easy peasy for the candies to stick to the roof, etc. In the past, we've had problems with the roofs sliding off, but not with this one. Another thing we liked with this one was the variety of candy. All in all, we gave it 5 stars. :) We bought it at Michael's for $5 (with a 50% off coupon)

Last, but not least is our Christmas ham we bought at HEB this year. If you're not in Texas, they probably have this flavor at other stores too. Or at least something similar.

HEB spiral sliced ham

Did you see that? TEXAS PECAN PRALINE AND VANILLA MAPLE!!! I mean, you can't go wrong with that flavor combo, can you? Yum!!! I'm making a note to try and find this flavor next year too. Everyone loved it (even my picky eater) :) And if you ARE local, HEB has $10 off these hams this week.

Well, that's it for now. So tell me, have you tried any of these things? What did you think?
