Stocking Stuffers for Him

I don’t know about your fella, but mine is super hard to shop for. I dread Christmas shopping for Mike because I never know what in the world to get him! I sat down and really thought about what he uses/needs on a regular basis. I think the little, practical things are what make the best stocking stuffers. I have found that Mike likes the gifts he can actually use, so everything listed below are items your husband/boyfriend will actually use! 
What do you put in your significant others stocking?

What I’m making for Thanksgiving 2017

We are hosting our first Thanksgiving lunch this year and I’m super excited! I absolutely love to cook and I’m looking forward to making all the fixin’s BUT I have never made a turkey before in my life! I’ve been watching youtube videos and reading online on how to cook a turkey. It doesn’t look too hard, so lets hope and pray I can do this!
I wanted to share with y’all what all I’m cooking and the plan I have laid out for Thanksgiving day. I love hearing about other peoples traditions and what they cook for Thanksgiving, so I thought y’all may like to know what I’m making this year!

Current Favorites

I’m sharing some things I’ve been loving lately! If you try any of these products let me know what you think about them!

Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo for Light Tones

I have tried a lot of dry shampoos over the past couple of years and I always go back to this one. They carry a dry shampoo for dark tones also, and I love that they do that because each dry shampoo has pigment in it that make each specific hair tone shine & look as natural as possible. Most dry shampoos make my hair look powdery and I HATE that! I don’t want to walk around looking like I poured baby powder on my head. I have a very oily scalp and this dry shampoo really absorbs oil well. I absolutely love this product.

Homemade Olive Oil & Vinegar Dressing

My Grandmother has always made a salad dressing made of olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic salt, and salad supreme seasoning. I have tried time and time over and cannot seem to make it like she does. I always end up mixing too much of one of the ingredients and it ends up absolutely awful.

I subtracted from and added to a variety of recipes until I found the absolute perfect salad dressing. I love to use this dressing not only on salads, I use it on tuna (sometimes mixed in with a salad),  sandwiches, and pretty much anything else you can possibly think of because I could seriously drink this stuff! I love that it’s homemade, so I don’t have to worry about any ingredients being in there that I can’t pronounce. Being that I make it almost weekly, I know I’m putting something fresh into my body which is something I really value.

I have always absolutely loved ranch dressing and I have never found a dressing that compares to ranch until I started making this. I actually now prefer my homemade oil & vinegar dressing over ranch dressing any day.

Side Note: I realize this dressing does have sugar in it, not making it the healthiest thing in the world, but I have omitted the sugar and I honestly couldn’t tell a difference. If you try it out without the sugar, let me know what you think!
