A Week of Thankfulness!

Since Thanksgiving is this week, I want to be thankful and post all the things I am so very blessed with. I will be posting what I am thankful for each day this week!

To start off with, I am so thankful for my family! I have an amazing, supportive family. We are all closer since Brian's accident and so grateful that he is with us!! It could have easily gone the other way. Plus, we have a new addition to our family this year! Miss Madelyn is a great source of joy in our family! Everyone is in love with her!

My family consist of my hubby Brian, sons Chase, Nick and Jake, Chase's wife Meredith and Madelyn (Chase and Meredith's daughter). We also have Lauren and Morgan ( the girlfriends!!) and I certainly don't want to forget them!

I am also thankful that I have found a great shampoo and conditioner. Now before you laugh at that, I have been looking for some time for a good, natural product that doesn't leave my hair greasy. I think I've finally found it! Nature's Gate sent me a good smelling shampoo and conditioner as well as a nice body wash. I work out every day and get really sweaty. I take a lot of showers and therefore have to wash my hair frequently. I don't want to use anything that has chemicals and harsh ingredients, but I like to have clean hair. Some of the other products I have tried have left my hair dirty and limp. No one likes that! Nature's Gate is organic and vegan certified. They are free of parabens, phtalates, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates and animal derived ingredients. I am using the Asian Pear and Red Tea Color Protecting Shampoo and Conditioner and the Pomegranate Sunflower Velvet Moisture Body Wash! All of them smell so good!

Be sure to check out the great products from Nature's Gate.


  1. Mmmm I wanna try those...bummer they don't sell them anywhere near me. May have to splurge and have them shipped.

  2. What a sweet, sweet baby! And I enjoyed seeing the family photo. Enjoy the holiday!

  3. Kaci - I'm the same way, no great stores near me. Whole Foods carries some of their products if you have access to one.

    Carma - thanks for your kind words. We are pretty partial to all of them :)

    Tammy - thank you as well!! Glad you stopped by!
