I hope you guys had a fantastic January! How are those resolutions going? So far, my #MoreMEin2016 initiative has been awesome. I read 2 books this month, took more time for myself and even enjoyed a date night with my amazing husband! Now let’s get to our family favorites.

The Wet Brushand L’Oreal Sleek It Heat Spray
This is kind of random but I am OBSESSED with an $8 brush this month. A friend of mine recommended it since my daughter hated when I brushed her hair. So I buy the brush and it works. (*cue angels singing here*) My daughter was even shocked and now she always asks for her “No hurt brush.” It didn’t take long for ME to try it and I could immediately tell a difference. This brush kind of strokes the tangles out of your hair instead of yanking them out. After being yelled at by my toddler every time I borrowed her brush, I finally just bought my own. Get this brush. It is amazing. Bonus hair-related item: I needed a new heat protectant spray and this one was on sale so I got it. I don’t know if it really protects my hair better than the last kind I used but I will say this smells SO FREAKING GOOD. I use it everyday since I just love the scent. Consider yourself warned though, the ingredients in this do make the bathroom floor slick and slippery even days later… but even though this spray nearly killed me, I still love it.
A blanket last month and shelving this month.. please believe me when I tell you that my husband is much more fun than his family favorites make him out to be. But seriously, my husband did a huge garage clean out and reorganization this month (I can actually pull my car into the garage! say what!) and he is obsessed with these shelves. He lined an entire side with them and they hold so much stuff.

Hudson got these for Christmas and he plays with it all the time! You can create little figures using beads and different templates. You just spray your design with water and 20 minutes later you have a new toy! It reminds me of those beads that use the heat to stick together, but this does it with only water. Hudson has created dinosaurs, planes and ninjas. I have to admit, I love playing with these as well. Him and I can sit at the table for a good hour creating different Qixels!
A few months back we found some old Play-Doh in a craft bin and Mila was so excited! She screamed, “WE HAVE PLAY-DOH??? I PLAY WITH THIS AT MY SCHOOL!” So Santa was kind enough to being her some fresh play-doh of her very own along with a Princess play-doh set. She has been playing with it almost every morning. She plays with it forever.. rolling it out, cutting it up and creating little princess skirts. The kit she got is a lot of fun and has all sorts of different ways to play with the doh. I love watching what she comes up with!
What is your family loving this month? Any holiday gifts a big hit?
