{Hair Detangler}: Make your own

So the girl has gorgeous hair....beautiful, long, perfect layers and oh so soft. But after a bath or after sleeping her hair typically looks like the image above. Combine that with a squirmy toddler and it is a recipe for disaster 

I have thought about buying detangler at the store many times but I usually forget and then remember come bath time that I was supposed to make that oh so important purchase.

So I decided to make my own and do you want to know the best part about it? It was FREE! Yeah!

I had a left over spray bottle from a hair heat spray that I use for myself that just had a drop left in the bottom. I washed it out added a tablespoon of conditioner that I had in the bathroom and then filled it with water. The only work required was shaking the bottle and I think we can all agree that that doesn't exactly qualify as work :)

Let me just say it is amazing! The girl now sits still while I brush her hair and is no longer screaming  "AWWWW" when the brush gets stuck on a knot.

I love it so much for her I might even try spraying it on my hair!

Happy Detangling :)

So I haven't posted in months! I know...ridiculous. And this post isn't going to be anything fabulous...sorry.

But I had to share this delicious, super easy recipe that is just perfect for fall.

Pumpkin Pancakes...YUMMY. The girl loves them and I have to say...I do too!

Hope you enjoy


2 cups dry boxed pancake mix (I used Krusteaz whole wheat)
1.5 cups water
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
powdered sugar

Spray non-stick spray onto pan and preheat on medium/high heat.

Mix pancake mix and water until well blended. Add pumpkin and cinnamon and continue to mix. I also use a little bit of pumpkin pie spice (just because I have it) and just sprinkled a little in. If the mix is too thick you can add mater water until the right consistency.

Cook just like cooking a regular pancake.

When done, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Delicious! Such a fun way to enjoy fall. Now all we need is some fall weather :)
